At tonight's meeting Student Government Council will
consider a motion sponsored by council members Mickey Eisen-
berg, '67, and Steven Daniels, '67. It would place an opinion
survey concerning military and political involvement in Viet Nam
on the ballot for the November 17 SGC election.
The motion also urges SGC to implore students to ignorej
the Hornberger poll, which asks the student body to affirm or
reject the statement, "I believe the student body to be in basic
agreement with the administration's policy in Viet Nam."
The two sponsors feel that the Hornberger motion is
"ambiguous and meaningless" and that only "an opinion survey
using rank order preference can provide a meaningful statement
of student sentiment."
