ADC Moves To Abandon
Assembly Dormitory Council
yesterday passed a 'motion sup-
porting the permanent discontinu-
ance of non-academic evaluations
in women's residence halls.
The motion followed two at-
tempts to pass legislation limiting,
but retaining, the present forms.
The first of these motions, vetoed
last week, asked that the 'evalua-
tions be allowed only if women in
the halls could read them before
they were filed with the Dean of
The second motion called for
the removal of paragraphs five
and six of .the evaluations, which
concern appearance and social and
emotional adjustment. It was ve-
toed on the grounds that without
these segments of the forms, the
evaluations would serve little pur-
The forms are filled out by resi-
dent directors and/or counselors
in both residence halls and sorority
houses. The main question wlh,ich
was raised at the ADC meeting
was whether or not a housemother
is capable of estimating the ma-
turity and social acceptance of
over 100 women.
A committee of five Assembly
representatives has been estab-
lished to investigate the theoreti-
cal duties of housemothers and
counselors. It will then attempt' to
decide if they fulfill their obliga-
tions and are qualified to evaluate
objectively specific and personal
questipns about residence hall and
.The committee will also seek to
learn if it would be possible for
the women in a particu-lar resi-
dence hall to evaluate their resi-
dent directors in much the same
way, as evaluations of teaching
fellows were made last year.
