"Assembly House Council main-
tains that the present residence
halls conditions are physically
psychologically and educationally
inadequate," AHC President Max-
ine Loomis, '65, said last night.
At the AHC meeting the crowd-
-ing committee presentedl an "ob-
jective study" of the situation and
unanimously passed a resolution
praising all concerned with "mak-
ing the best of a bad situation."
According to Jane Feinberg, '66
chairman of the. crowding com-
mittee, the study narrowed down
to two main areas: permanent
facilities and the feelings of the
"third girl" in converted triples
"The study was made When things
had settled down somewhat and
we were able to objectively study
the situation," Miss Feinberg ex-
Strain and Pressure
The committee found that mov-
ing girls in when they were not
expected caused" the most strain
and pressure. When the girls
Whose rooms were being converted
were contace d individually and
told when to expect the new girl,
as was done in Couzens, the tran-
sition was not as difficult.
Another complaint was the fact
that the changes 'should have
been made at the beginning of the
semester. "In some instances, by
the time the new girl moved in,
the old roommates were the best
of firiends and the third girl had
no common interests," Miss Fein
berg said.
"Another problem arose in terms
of class standing. Freshmen were
moved in on juniors which created
a rather uncomfortable situation
in some cases," Miss Feinberg

Carl J. Cohen, '66, 'favored the
rally because "I thought that we
could make our purposes clear to
!both students and administrators
through public explanation andj
behavior at the rally itself. Un-
fortunately neither The Daily nor
SGC itself could ever get' clear in
its mind the fact that 'rally' does
' not necessarily iniply 'protest',"
he said.
"Inaccurate front page headlines
in the campus' only sourse of co-
fmunication made our task a com-
plicated but not an impossible
one," Cohen commented. "Neither,
of the rally's most articulate op-
ponents, Executive Vice-President
Douglas Brook, '65, Interfraternity
Council President Lawrence Loss-
ing, '65, nor Sheldon N. Kessler,
'65, were present Wednesday night
when Council originally discussed
and approved the rally," he said.
"Their opinions were heavily
tainted by The Daily's inaccurate
headlines and the emotional resi-
due from the Student Action.
League's earlier protest rallies," he
SGC President Thomas Smith-
son, '65, opposed the rally because
"it wouldn't serve the function of
stimulating student interest. It
would draw people who- enjoy emo-
tional excitement and not those
who are seriously interested in dis-
,cussing the issues."
Smithson said that although the
Constituent Assembly was not like-
ly to attfact as many people as a
rally would, "at least those who
attend the assembly would be stu-
dents who are dedicated to the
idea of discussing grievances in a
raitional manner and who are pre-
pared to sit down and work out
a sound set of proposals to offer
the University through SGC."
Sunday night the candidates in
the current SGC election cam-
paign spoke at a forum held in
the UGLI Multipurpose Rm. Dur-
ing the course of the program
Sharon Manning, '65, announced
that she was entering the SGC
race as a write-in candidate.
Miss Manning had filed a peti-
tion to enter the campaign as an
official candidate two weeks ago,
but she was disqualified by the

No Study
In the area of facilities, the
major complaint was the lack of
study facilities. Many girls feel
that even if the atmosphere were
conducive to study, there is not
enough room.
It is the opinion of the com-
mittee that definite steps must
be taken to alleviate some of the
uncomfortable conditions. T h e
committee appended two recom-
mendations to their report, which
were passed unanimously:
-"That the Office of Residence
Halls work to provide permanent
facilities such as desk, dressers
and. lighting for girls iA tempo-
rary housing;" and
-"That each house take it upon
themselves to work with those
girls in temporary housing to in-
tegrate them into the activities of
the house."
Along, with the report, Miss
Loomis presented a recommenda-
tion to the council which was
passed unanimously. It presented
several resolutions and motions
regarding the situation:
-"The only advantage to the
present over-crowded conditions
is that of permitting additional
students to attend the Univer-
-"The students living in these
doubled-up conditions have ad-
justed commendably to this ques-
tionable aspect of University life."
Miss-Loomis put into the form
of motions the two recommenda-
tions made by the committee.

Berkeley Students Organize
New PoltelBan' Protest
Protesting Berkeley students announced yesterday that they will
conduct a "car caravan" this Thursday to a meeting in Davis of the
regents of the University of California. The move would be directed
against the ban on direct political action on the Berkeley campus.
Leaders of the protest movement estimate that "several thousand
students" will participate in the caravan.
Although student participants will "refrain from civil disobed-
ience" Thursday, the leaders 'of the demonstration said that this will
be the "last time protest will be
run through legal channels."

Gwin said officers of the Beta

the charter revocation but were
given no official reason. The col-
lege has sent a telegram to the
national office of the fraternity
requesting an explanation, the
dean said.

ta Iota Chapter,.said that the
