petition, representing ten differ-
ent nations. This is the first time

outstanding groups in the nation.

mer of 1955 they made a four-week'

Student government in men's
residence halls will be headed this
year by a new organization, the
Inter-Quadrangle Council, which
replaced the Inter-House Council
last spring when houses ratified
a new constitution.
The lIC consisted of a Presi-
dium and Executive Cabinet. The
Presidium was made up of the
twenty-four house presidents, the
officers, 4and non-voting chair-
This organization failed to meet
effectively the needs of such a
student government body. As a
result, Boren "Tex" Chertkov, '60,
President of the IMC, set up a
committee last year to re-
evaluate the structure of the MEC
with regard to its purposes,
functions, and potential.
Changes Approved
T he Presidium approved
general changes suggested by the
committee and appointed a com-
mittee to draw up a new con-
The new IQC evolves from the
quadrangle councils. It is a nine-
man body: three officers, three
quadrangle presidents, and an ad-
ditional IQC Representative from
each quadrangle.
The change was made because
the Presidium membership had
tended to be a large unrelated
group with few common interests,
with less experience in campus
organizations than was desirable,
and with little time to spend on'
all-quadrangle policies.
The Presidium had thus become
a rubber stamp for the Executive
It was felt that fewer men:
could carry out the work of sucha
an o r g a n i z a t i o n quite satis-
Advantages Expected
Thus a smaller body was
planned because it could function+
efficiently and informally, and its
members could be more interested,
more experienced, a n d c o u 1 d
better represent the men in the
House Presidents' Conferences+
will be held frequently to discuss+
basic areas of concern and to
h e l p strengthen the individual
h o u s e programs. A committee
structure will be important in the
effective managment of this new
IQC President Dan Rosemergy,1
'61, urges all interested freshmeno
to petition for committee posi-
tions In the service, publicity,:

areas this fall.
IQC 'Nedded'
Rosemergy said that "there is
a great need for an organization
such as the IQC, and our body is
planning to work in three areas:+
exchanging ideas regarding all
student activities, campus-wide as
well as In residence halls; work-
ing with problems and projects
which involve many houses andI
quadrangles; and providing a re-
presentative to t h e S t u d e n t
Government C o u n ci1, the ad-"
ministration, the faculty, and the
campus at large."+
He also mentioned that thei
Council itself will be discussing
and working with areas of basic'
residence h aI policies, regula-
tions and problems.
Committees will be carrying out+
plans for dances, the IQC-
