Plans by the University to
construct a $400,000 central-

Construction of the new dining
hall, slated to begin in May, wouldj
impel Pilot residents to eat their
meals in one huge dining facility;
they now use three small dining
rooms in Lloyd.
University officials and Housing
Policy Committee have approved
the building plans saying that the
new hall will save the University
money by staff reductions and
modernized facilities. These sav-
ings are presently estimated at
$55,000 per year.
"This plan would destroy the
concept of the Pilot Program, the
I idea of meshing the social and
academic lives,' says Tom Lobe,
airector of Pilot Program.
.'At present we have classes be-
ing held°over dinner and some-
times have speakers during din-
ner. These things would be im-
possible in one huge dining room,"
says Lobe.
Lloyd residents plan to hold a
esierendum in the near future in
orcter to determine exact student
opposition to this plan. If the ma-
jority is indeed opposed, they will
take the results to the Housing
Policy Committee and ask that'
they reject the project.

night, the military bill pro-
a $2.6 billion package in



place of the $2.9 billion measure
rejected just 13 days ago.
Arguing for his amendment,
Stennis said the Foreign Rela-
tions Committee's cuts of $538
million from the original bill and
$798 million from the adminis-
tration request "jeopardize the
success of our withdrawal from
South Vietnam."
"I believe that modest increases
are required even for those pro-
grams to be phased down in a rea-
sonable manner," he said, add-
ing that by voting for the reduced
levels "we essentially vote to kill
military assistance immediately."
The bill now goes to the House
which earlier this year voted $3.4
billion for the aid program, just
$100 million below the Nixon ad-
ministration's request.
The immediate parliamentary
path for the aid program still ap-
pears clouded-and funds may run
out temporarily next Monday. But
the Senate action appears to as-
sure the program will continue for
now, though at a reduced level.
