Meeting in a closed executive
session, tihe literar'y college cur-
riculum committee yesterday ef-
fectively shelved a proposal from
Dean William L. Hays that voting
student members be seated on the
Although the committee en-
dorsed the idea of "formalized
student representation" it left
other questions unresolved, such
as the number of students to be
seated on the committee or their
method of election.
"The issue of student voting'
wasn't brought up at all," said
Prof. Otto Graf of the German
department, a committee member.
The meeting was interrupted
momentarily by a group of stu-
dents from the sit-in held yester-
day in the LSA building. They
presented a petition to the com-
mittee demanding that students
be given full voting status.
The committee now seats three
students who are appointed in an
ex-officio capacity. Prof. James
Gindin, chairman of the commit-
tee, explained that their presence
at committee meetings doesenot
constitute "formalized representa-
Gindin said the issue of language
and distribution requirements took
priority over the question of stu-'
dent representation. Further con-
sideration of restructuring the
committee, therefore, must 'wait
until March, after the committee
has made a recommendation con-
cerning language and distribution
"There was mttfh disagreement
and debate," Gi-din said. He
added he had hoped to resolve
the question of student represent-
ation at yesterday's meeting, but
that the committee was too di-
vided on the issue.
