The president of Assembly serves

Governors along with the Inter-
Quad president and various fac-
ulty members. and administrators
to determine policy for the resi-
dence halls.
As well as being a member of the
Residence Hall Board of Gover-
nors, she is a representative on
Student Government Council and
may, as this year, take part in the
activities of the United S.tates Na-
tional Student Association.
During this past year, a five
women committee produced the
First Definition of Authority of
the Assembly Association. It is
now being considered by the Of-
fice of Student Affairs.

According to the Definition,
power is delegated from the Of-
fice of Student Affairs, to Assem-
bly Association, to the houses, to
the individual independent women.
Maximum Efficiency
"Through this functional struc-
ture it is possible to attain maxi-
mum efficiency within the now
ambiguous realm of authority and
maintain completely effective rep-
resentation for the individual resi-
dent or house," the report says.
Under the document, the vice-
president for student affairs has
the right to veto any legislation or
decision of Assembly withink two
weeks. The time limit is one of the
major policy changes in the paper.
AHC President Charlene Hager,
'64, says that the two-week time
limit "would better define the re-
lationship between the vice-presi-
dent and Assembly and would fa-
cilitate implementing any legisla-
tion passed."
The'Definition gives houses the
power to legislate all rules neces-
sary for their own governing, to
mediate disputes between house
members, 'to establish their own
judicial body and to determine
their own dress regulations, sub-
ject to AHC approval.
The AHC is authorized to ex-
press the opinion of and recom-
mend regulations for. the -women
