NEW OFFICERS-Student Government Council held its election of officers last night. Those chosen
were Mort Wise (left), executive vice-president, Maynard Goldman, president, Jo Hardee, adminis-
trative vice-president, and Ron Gregg, treasurer. Wise, Goldman and Miss Hardee were officers of

Plan Offers
Latter Hours
For Women
A plan for the revision of wo-
men's hours was presented to the
League Senate at yesterday's
The plan, devised by the Wo-
men's Judiciary Council and ap-
proved by the Dean of Women's
office, has only four actual
changes, Sarah Drasin, '59, chair-
man of Women's Judiciary Coun-
cil, said. These include a mid-

and an 11 pam. closing for fresh-

gestion of Christine Wells, '9Ed.,
Assembly vice-president, stating
that "individual housing units,

Technic' Sale

The immediate reaction of the
Council, which Taub characterizedi
as. "shocked disbelief," disip-4
pointed him because they either
assumed he wasn't serious or that
such talks would concern specific
problems such as the jurisdictional
dispute with the administration,,
he said.
"It makes me a little sick to my,
s omach," Assembly Association
Zresident Pat Marthenke, '59, had
declared, "that we are taking this
motion seriously."
Agrees with idea,
Miss Marthenke said in Mem-
bers' Time that this statement
had been "an emotional outburst,"
and that she agreed whole-heart-
edly that a thorough discussion of
the value and aims of student
government was in order.
Union President Barry Shapiro,
'59, said, "Instead of preaching,
as in The Daily, let's try to be
constructive. This is nothing but a"
waste of time."
Goldman said he felt the "sen-
sationalism completely unneces-
sary" since a motion to devote
time to discussing the point to
student government would be in
order at any time.
Says Value Low
Moreover, Goldman continued,
he does not see how anyone could
.chair such a meeting nor how any
conclusions could be reached
which would be of any value when
the cards were down.
Two diametrically opposite con-
cepts of student government have
been presented, Taub said during
Members Time. He was referring
to the view expressed by Goldman
and Chrysler in speeches preceding
the election.
"Student government has one
purpose only," Chrysler said. "This
is to benefit the Council, the stu-
dent body and the University in
h nrCooperation Lacking
Pointing to the Sigma Kappa
issue as an example, Chrysler said
that cooperation among the mem-
bers of SGC and between the
Council, students and administra-
tion has been noticeably lacking.
"If the original concept of stu-
dent government were kept in
mind, the Council would have both
student trust and the confidence
of the administration," he de-
- clared.
"Power in the Council has grown
more concentrated," Chrysler
maintained. "I would like to see
the power restored to the 18 SGC
World News

Goldman countered Chrysler's
statements, saying, "Student gov-
ernment is a government by and
for the students. It is not a gov-
ernment in cooperation with the
administration and faculty.
"We have tried to cooperate and.
compromise in past months in;
dealing with Sigma Kappa," he
continued. "But there comes a'
time when you can cooperate a
body right out of existence."
Goldman said that he has stood
for "strong, effective student gov-
ernment." It should be strong in
that it should stand up for its
ideas and it must be effective by
working in areas of responsibility,
he explained.
Defeat Calendaring Move
Immediately preceding Taub's
motion to dissolve the Council,
SGC defeated a motion to assign
all scheduling of events to the
Calendaring Committee barring
serious conflicts.
Because the Council now pays so
little attention to event calendar.
ing, perhaps the power should be
delegated to the committee, Fred
Merrill, '59, said. But ideally, he
continued, this should not happen.
David Kessel, Grad., revealed in
Members' Time that he "had come
prepared to resign his seat on the
"The Council is not dealing with
important problems in the right
way," he maintained.
Kessel indicated he had recon-
sidered this decision upon learning
that SGC was going to consider
the aims of student government.

RELIGIOUS CONFERENCE-Arthur S. Adams (left) spoke at the
University Convocation yesterday morning on the role of the
state-supported university in the teaching of religion. Following
the Convocation, a luncheon was held in honor of President
Harlan Hatcher, who spoke of a reemphasis on spiritual values in
university courses.
