tification hearing had been made by
only two justices, after the claims that
the original hearing was not legitimate.
Mark Breakstone, MSA represen-
tative, said Johnson told him he viewed
CSJ as a "farce" after the April Regen-
"By saying they're a farce, he's
saying that MSA's a farce," said
JOHNSON SAID he doesn't view CSJ
as being separate from MSA.
Johnson indicated the financial
problems within MSA include the

Jim Alland, incoming MSA president,
called this year's auditing report
"I THINK we've done a very good job
of being responsible," said Alland.
"I'm going to do anything I can to
keep the administration in a limited
capacity to control MSA," Alland con-

the Office of Student Services is
"anxious to run MSA."
"THEY SEE some problems with the
things MSA is dealing with, but are
blowing them out of proportion,"
"We really do not have an effective
operating body - I can see Mr. John-
son's concern that the assembly be fun-
ctioning in a responsible manner before
the money can be turned over," said
The only current MSA officers are
Alland, Laurie Tyler, vice-president,
and Brad Canale, treasurer. Canale's
term runs from January 1979 to
January 1980, said Alland.
Alland added that other MSA officers
usually are chosen from among the 34
representatives from each school in the
University. These include such
positions as vice-president for person-
nel, Legislative Relations, Budget
Priorities, Academic Affairs, Special
Projects, and Committee Coordinator.
"I DON'T SEE the function of MSA
hurt that much by not having officers,"
said Alland. He said a steering commit-
tee would be set up to deal with issues
during the summer.
Jim Sullivan, a member of PAC,
spoke at the pulic comments section of
yesterday's Regents meeting in Dear-
"We have made tremendous progress
this year, and it seems now all our ef-
forts are for naught," said Sullivan.
