Cards Asking Cooperation Are Sent
To Fraternity Presidents
And Freshmen
Extensive operations are being
carried on by the Union in order to in-
terest a large number of students in
the proposed amendment which will
be voted on by the members on Feb.
28. Attempts are being made to reach
all of students if possible and explain
to them the plan of reorganization
which is embodied in the amendment.
For this purpose, cards have been
'sent to every freshman on the cainpus
asking their cooperation on the amend-
ment. Letters have been sent to the
presidents of all fraternities asking
them to explain the reorganization
amendment to each member of his
fraternity and to urge them to attend
and vote at the meeting. The interest
of faculty members of the Union is
also being solicited by means of let-
ters concerning the action.
The proposed reorganization, tin-
volves the consolidation of the two
1 boards which are at present the hold-
ers of administrative power into one
board which shall have control by
means of committees made up of its
mInembers over the same functions
which the original two boards were
required to take care of.
To Speed Up Work
Tme improvements which, it is be-
lieved, the new organization will
bring about are along the lines of
speeding up and simplifying the ad-
ministrative functions of the board.
Under the old plan, the two boards met
at different times and had control over
,ifferent functions with the result that
for the taking of certain action it was
nece'ssary for both of the boards to
meet and for a great deal of delay to
ensue from this.
The board of governors which form-
erly had control over the finanes and
the selection of the general manager
will become represented on the new
board of directors which will be
fornied by the amendment by a finan-
cial committee which shall be respon-
sible only to the new board itself.
To Have Activities Coninittee
The activities of the Union will be
under the direction of an activities
committee appointed from the board
of directors, several members of
which will be students and which will
have charge of all activities within
the Union building. There will also
be a house committee, composed partly
of students, whose duty it shall be to
assist the general manager in the
running of the building, according to
the new plan.
Thie personnel of the board of di-
rectors as planned by the amndment
will consist of the president of the
Union, the recording secretary, six
student vice-presidents, three faculty
nimembers, two alumni members, the
general secretary of the Alumni asso-
ciation, a member of the Board o
Regents, the financial secretary of the
Union, and the dean of students. In
this way there will be eight studen
members and nine picked from other
sources than the student body. All th
tudent members will be chosen by a
general campus election, with a vice
president being chosen from the schoo
which he represents.
Eleven students in the School o
Education received all 'A' records fo

fI school year, according to an an
nouncement made yesterday by th

Ifonorio Pueyrredon, Irreconellable,
Takes Firm Stand Against
Articles Of Union
(By Associated Press.)
HAVANA, Feb. 15.-Reports that
Honorio Puerredon, irreconcilable,
Argentine leader, had tendered his
resignation to the Buenos Aires gov-
ernment, did not deter the Pan-
American conference from completing
the first reading of the Pan-American
union covenant today by approving
the last article. This was designed
especially to save the unanimous de-
sires of all the other American re-
publics from being frustrated by one
Rumors that Dr. Pueyrredon had
resigned, dominated .the conference
buildings when it was noted that the
Argentine delegation was absent from
the meeting of the committee of Pan-
American union affairs this morning,
at which a proposition bearing vitally
upon Puerredon's attitude came up
for discussion.
The rumors were greatly strengtl-
ened a few hours later when Dr.
Pueyrredon, after being unavailable
all morning, even to members of his
own delegation, said he could not dis-
cuss whether he hal tendered his
resignation. At ]is headquarters it
was learned, however, that his stand
was firmly established in favor of re-
signing both from his position here
and from the ambassadorship at
Washington, if ordered by hip govern-
ment to sign a convention of which
!he disapproved.
Committee Meets
The Pan-American union committej
met in the morning, determined to put
an end to the crisis which was pre-
cipitated more than a month ago by
Argentine insistence that the pro-
posed convention, to regulate the ac-
tivities of the union, should include
specifically the necessity of reducing
excessive tariffs and removing other
obstacles to the free flow of inter-
American commerce
Spurred by reports that the Argen-
tine government doubted the advis-
ability of standing alone in this de-
mand, the committee considered and
approved a proposal submitted by
Jacobo Barela of Uruguay, that the
!convention be opened for later signa-
ture and ratification to the govern-
mients whose delegates failed to affix
their names here.
The article approved empowers the
president of this conference to trans-
mit to such governments; certified
copies of the agreement for their con-
sideration and possible ratification
and signature. The convention would
not become effective until all coun-
tries present at this conference rati-
fled it.
The delegates hoped that this pro-
vision would prevent Dr. Puerredon
1 from killing off the convention by re-
fusing to sign it, as he, announced,
since opportunity would be offered
Argentina to repudiate the attitude of
its representatives at the conference.
Barela Approies
Withi the approval of the Barela,
the convention was referred to the
sub-committee for the style in which
it is.to be finally approved at the next
session of the committee.
Under the agreement as it now
stands, the operation of the Pan-

American union will not be modified
to any vital extent from the present
form, except that all countries will
be allowed to have special representa-
tives on the governing board instead
