THE STUDENT-FACULTY Council on Student Affairs at
Ohio State University will vote today on sections of a new student
body constitution which increases student power and conflicts
with existing Faculty Council rules. The new constitution, rati-

authority to recognize organizations, place a student member on
the Faculty Council and require student approval of operationalf
expenses. All changes must be approved by the CSA before the
faculty can consider them. According to a staff member of the

Special To The Daily
Managing Editor
CHICAGO--Twenty students at
DePaul University last night con-
tinued their two-day "cram-in"
staged in protest over the editor-
ship of the school's weekly news-
paper, the DePaulia.
Seated quietly on the carpetcd
floors of the university's executive
offices, the students prepared to
spend a second night studying for
exams and waiting for Father
Wengler, DePaul's vice-president,
to meet their demands.
The controversy began at the
newspaper's annual banquet last
Saturday when Marilyn Moats,
faculty advisor to the DePaulian,
announced the appointment of the
new editor.
At that time Miss Moats named
Michael Walters, a junior, to the
position and not the girl the out-
going editors had recommended.
The DePaulian staff immediately
resigned, having already publish-
ed their last edition of the semes-
ter, claiming that Walters was
relatively unknown in the DePaul-
ian and had done nothing to de-
serve this position.
According to the associate edi-
tor, Ernie Topczynski, Miss Moats
had said she made the appoint-
