Declares 'Perceptual Unity'
Basic Artistic Organization
fied in the psychological tendency
of the mind to "see" things as a
unity and to "group" objects when
seeing them, and the figure ground
relationship must be understood
to achieve dynamic asthetic or-
der, he said.
"We assume the whole, in as-
suming unity the eye seeks unity,
and we have to shift from the ac-
tual objective order to the asthet-
iC order. In great art, the ap-
parent position is congruent with
the actual position, he said.
Artist Makes Relationships
The artist is concerned with
making relationships. Vision pre-
sents a field of stress, a field of
complex lines. The artist must
make these lines relevant to each
In a good design, a ground al-
ways yields to a figure. A good
example of this is symmetry. The
sides, or ground of a symmetri-
cal structure yield to the center.
"The mind has a tendency to
unify what it sees into groups.
Thus, unity of artistry may be ob-
tained by presenting an interre-
lated set of units. Different styles
of architecture have stressed' the
absense, implication, or presence
of the unifying lines." Baroque
and modern styles feature the
disrupted closure, allowing the
mind to close up the lines.
Whether any style is dynamic
or not, depends on the total unity
of the visual field. The dynamics
of color, however, are dependent
on the contrast rather than the
unity, he concluded.

Student Government Council
passed a motion Wednesday di-
recting the Education Committee
to communicate with various state
and national legislators to secure
information on proposed legisla-
tion concerning education..
The committee was directed to
contact committees on education,
the state Department -of Public
Instruction and the Office of Ed-
ucation of the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
Kay Warman, '61BAd., chair-
man of the SGC Education Com-
mittee, explained that at one
NSA conference, a member of the
Minnesota legislature had stated
that a bill providing funds to ed-
ucation has been defeated, be-
cause no person had written a let-
ter supporting t.
Miss Warman further stated,
"Students should be more aware
of what the legislature does con-
cerning them." -She pointed out
that not only do these issues need
support, "but any protest must be
made in advance-before it is too
late and the bill has been passed."
Since each individual student
cannot determine the details of
legislation in process, SGC can
better act as a liaison to gather
information and present it to the
student body, Miss Warman fur-
The motion provided for con-
tinuing communication with a
member or members of these com-
mittees, reports to be given to
the Council in reply, to the initial
letter, and also "When any new
legislation is first considered or
proposed, or there is any sugges-
tion from any of the representa-
tives that might effect the educa-
tional policies of the government."
The motion further stated that
"upon receipt of such reports,
SGC should carefully consider the
issue and whenever the Council
feels it appropriate, send a letter
of support or opposition to the
principles or proposals being con-
sidered to the appropriate mem-
bers of the government, and in-
form the student body of these
important educational issues.

These are a few of the reasons
why over 250 students live in co-
ops on this campus today.
"Student co-ops were organized
to fulfill an economic need-now
over twenty-five years later, they
still meet this need. However, in
addition they provide places
where students can live together
in small houses and use them as
laboratories for their ideas,"

"The need to get away from
family or supervisors and grow
up, or to put into practice class
room theories of leadership, is as
valuable to the student as shelter
and sustenance," Buchele added.
"On this campus, co-ops have
pioneered inter-racial living and
have always been active in the
civil rights movement. Members
of co-ops are in positions of lead-
ership throughout the campus,"
Among'the eight co-ops on this
campus, three are for men, four
are for women, and one is for
married couples. Although they
are listed as official University
housing, the co-ops are owned and
run by the ICC, a corporation set
up and run entirely by the stu-
dents who live or eat in the hous-

save for a trip to Europe when
they graduate," Buchele said.
