For Senate
Reorganization Plan
To Improve Procedure,
Develop Discussion
The Women's Senate is poten-
tially one of the most powerful
women's organizations on campus,
Sue Moag, '61, newly-appointed
League internal vice-president and
Senate chairman told the group
The Senate encompasses repre-
sentatives from both independent
and affiliated women's housing
units and has the power to sug-
gest and initiate new women's
regulations and policies. It may
also request that Student Govern-
ment Council discuss or approve
its policies.
However, Miss Moag added,
Senate can have no power unless
it can be coordinated. Discussing
a possible reorganization plan, she
said Assembly Association had im-
plemented a program in which the
same student may hold the offices
of both Assembly Dormitory Coun-
cil representative and Senator for
her housing unit and suggested
that Senate ask Panhellenic Asso-
ciation to consider a similar plan.
Could Discover Issues
In this way, Miss Moag said, it
would be possible for the Senator
to discuss every issue considered
by' the group twice-first with
either the independent or affiliated
organization to which she belongs
and again in Senate, where both
groups are represented.
Senate might also eliminate the
duplication of some topics and the
discussion of "superfluous details"
which may be settled in the other
groups, she pointed out.
If Panhellenic accepts the plan,
some sort of uniform election date
should be set, Miss Moag said, to
provide the group with a con-
tinuity of membership.
Discusses Action
Discussing action of a more im-
mediate nature, Anne Morrison,
'60, acting vice-chairman, an-
nounced the revamping of the
duties of that officer and a new
method of election.
The Senate vice-chairman will
now be in charge of five areas of
responsibility: 1) she must provide
for the transcription of minutes of
each meeting; 2) she will attend
meetings of Panhellenic delegates
board and ADC; 3) she will assist
the Senate chairman in the co-
ordination of the activities and
areas of concern of the three
women's representative groups.
She will also serve in the ca-
pacities of 4) chairman of the
nominating committee; and
5) chairman of the research com-
Chosen by Interview
Candidates for the position will
be chosen by an interviewing com-
mittee of five students, Miss Mor-
rison explained, rather than ac-
cepting nominations from the floor
of the Senate as has been done
Miss Moag commented that the
reason for the changed procedure
was to insure that students with
an expressed interest in the posi-
tion are nominated. The vice-
chairman, she added, cannot be a
member of the Senate and must
resign if she holds that position
wher elected.

Somethin' Smith, Redheads
