Zimmerman explained.





say, however, that special prior-
-ties will likely be included in
the future.
Results from a sampling of
LSA students earlier this year,
show that the majority favor a
random appointment procedure
such as the one being imple-
mented. They also indicated
that seniors should continue to
get special priority. The new
plan, however, had been con-
ceived before the LSA survey
was distributed.
Although reaction to the new
plan has been mixed among the
various schools and colleges, all
are willing to try it, according
to Zimmerman.
"Most schools other thanl
LSA could handle the (old)
appointment process well be-
cause of the limited number of
students involved. Certain
schools could give specific stu-
dents priority over others for
various reasons," he said.

The governor also called for
