Polls workers were recruited by

"Once the master schedule is

Explains Functions
Erbe explained that the poll
worker serves the voter by checl-
ing and punching ID cards and
distributing the proper ballots.
The supervisor, he continued, in-'
structs new workers and assumes
responsibility for ballots and poll
equipment.
"Poll workers will administer
five different ballots," he said.
"While all students will vote for
seven SGC seats and three mem=
bers of the Board in Control of
Student Publications, only select
groups will vote on the remaining
ballots."
"Only male students," Erbe ex-
plained, "will vote for the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics representative and the
Union Board of Directors; second-
semester juniors and first semester
seniors for senior class officers;
and medical, dental and law stu-
dents for their respective Union
representative."

In SGC Vote
Under the Hare electoral system,
voters in Tuesday and Wednes-
day's Student Government Coun-
cil elections will rank the candir.
dates starting with first place. I
At count night Wednesday in the
Union Ballroom, election workers
will determine the voters' prefer-
ences by sorting and counting bal-
lots according to first place choices.
According to the Hare System
adapted here last year,- after in-
valid ballots have been discarded,
a quota for election is determined
by dividing the number of valid
ballots by the number of seats
open plus one, then adding one.
Dropping the lowest candfdate, a
new quota is determined in a simi-
lar manner, based on the number
of ballots still in circulation after
ballots exhausted in the course -of
the transfer have been subtracted.
All candidates whose number of
first place votes equals or exceeds
the quota are then declared
elected. The number of ballots
equal to an elected candidate's
surplus votes is randomly picked
from his pile and distributed to
those listed as second choice.
in a like manner candidates are
declared defeated one at a time,
all of their ballots transferred and
a new quota computed.

Approximately 150 students
serve Student Government Coun-
cil through the non-elective Ad-
ministrative Wing, according to
Lynnel Marg, '61, SGC personnel
director.
Directed by two officers, the
personnel director and the office
manager, these students serve on
the four major committees of the
wing. The Stud'6nt Education and
Welfare Committee tries to en-
able the student body, through
SGC, to make an effective expres-
sion on educational policy. At
present the committee, headed
by Bart Burkhalter, '60E, is plan-
ning the program for legislators
visiting here at the end of this
month.
The committee is also trying to
integrate student representatives
on faculty committees concerned
with educational plans. It accepts
and makes suggestions regarding
academic policy, student economic
and social problems and student-
campus human relations through
the Human Relations Board.
Takes Charge of Elections j
The Elections Committee, which
exists for the period of SGC elec-
tions, takes charge of all matters
concerning the elections. It ar-
ranges for the candidates to speak
at open houses and recruit poll
workers and counters for the
votes. The Hyde Park Elections

Forum was one of the projects
this year.
To learn the opinion of as many
of the 22,000 students on campus
as possible and to keep the stu-
dent body informed of SGC affairs
is the main jobof the Public Re-
lations Committee. Members of
the committee interview a cross-
section of students for their opin-
ions on vgrious topics.
The committee, headed by Ron
Bassey, '61, publishes the Inter-
Com Newsletter for members of
the administrative wing, the Stu-
dent Government Review, the
Faculty Newsletter and the 'M'
Handbook. It also arranges for
SGC members to speak at hous-
ing units through the Student
Speakers' Bureau.
Works in Three Areas
The work of the National and
International Affairs Committee,
headed by Carol Holland, '60, is
divided into three main areas:
National Student Association, re-
lations with other schools, and
international programming.
The committee concerns itself
with the selection and orientation
of delegates to the NSA Congress
and regional meetings. At present
it is working on Junior Year
Abroad plans.
A major responsibility of the
committee is working with the In-
ternational Students Organization

to improve relations between for-
eign and American students. The
committee will host the Inter-
national Student Relations Sem-
inar for the Michigan area at the
end of March.-
Coordinates and Counsels
The Student Activities Commit-
tee works in the areas of coordin-
ating, counseling and interview-
ing and nominating. It is re-'
sponsible for officially recogniz-
ing new student organizations on
campus, inspecting the constitu-
tion of new groups, helping them
meet recognition requirements
and, finally, recommending ap-
proval or disapproval of the group
to the Council.
Headed by Phil Zook, '60, the
committee prepares the calendar
of student activities and resolves
any conflicts .that arise in the
scheduling of events. A recent
project is the 'Willopolitan' bus
service for students to the Willow
Run and Metropolitan Airports
on March 27.
The interviewing and nominat-
ing function of the committee
serves to appoint students for
open positions on the semi-inde-
pendent boards controlled by SGC.
Committee positions and chair-
manships are open to all students
and require no previous experi-
ence. Petitioning will be held in
the late spring.j

Review Board
Holds Power
Of Judgment
The Board of Review, Student
Government Council's "Supreme
Court," has final power over SOC
action.
Since it has almost unlimited
power to request a "stay of action"
of any SGC decision, its word is
the final one in the most con-
troversial issues.
The membership of the Board
consists of a group representing
various sides of campus opinion. It.
is composed of seven persons: The
Dean of Women, Dean of Men,
three faculty members, and two
students. The chairman and vice-
chairmen are chosen from the
facult, members.
Can Call Meetings
The powers of the Board, as
stated in the Student Government,
Plan; allow them to call a meet-
ing in the event of any action on
the part of the Council which "In-
volves a question of the Council's
jurisdiction, or requires further
consideration in view of Regental
policy or administration prac-
tices."k
In 1956, the Board met to con-
sider whether SGC had the right,
to declare that Sigma Kappa

sorority had failed to meet the
conditions for initial recognition
listed in the University regula-
tions, and to act in good faith
within the spirit of the regula-
tions for recognized organizations.
The Board decided that' there was
no basis for disturbing the SGC
action in the light of their powers.
In the recent meeting on Sigma
Kappa, however, the Board found
that SGC had oversteppe; its
bounds, and had contravened ad-
ministrative policy. It was the
first time in its history that an
SGC decision had been stalemated
by the Board.
Just after this a "Student Gov-
ernment Council Evaluation Sub-
committee" began a re-evaluation
