Two frustrating years of at-
temnpts to reform the structure of
Student Governm9nt Council cul-
minated Thursday night as two
council members submitted a mo-
,tion asking that SGC be per-
manently dissolved.
The drive to make SGC more
responsive to student opinion and
more relevant to the importait is-
sues facing the University began
almost two years .go when Bruce
Kahn (during his -campaign, for
&the SGC presidency) proposed re-
structing ' the council.
The most disappointing phe-'
nomena throughout SOC's life had
been the apathy shown by the
student body toward participating
in what was essentially their own
government. While many people

Allen directed the school board
to temporarily transfer the 10
white teachers whose ouster by the
local group last spring touched off
the controversy and the strike by
the United Federation of Teachers.
The strike closed most of the
city's 900 schols and kept all but
20,000 of the f.1-million students
away from classes.
Allen told the board to suspend
the local group, take administra-
tive control of the district, transfer
the teachers and report to him by
6 p.m. tonight on what it had done
to carry out his orders.
The president of the Board of
Education, Mrs. Rose Shapiro said
Allen "presented a formula that
may ultimately lead to the solu-
tion of this difficult problem. I
hope that all parties will accept
his directive."
In directing the central board
to suspend the community offi-
cials, Allen said the means used
