Rules Changed
Changes instituted by the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee in the
procedure for registering campus
events on the Social Calendar of
the University have been clarified
by Virginia Councell, chairman of
the Student Legislature Social
When an organization decides
on an event and the date, permis-
sion for it is secured by sending a
letter, with a duplicate, to Miss
Councell, 1204 Hill St. The letter
should state the name of the func-
tion, the sponsor, where it is to
be held, the date, time, and ticket
An estimate of the numberof
couples who will attend, the
budget, and any other infor-
mation that might have to do
.with the theme of the event
should also be included.
After receiving a letter, the
Social Committee discusses the
event. When the event is ap-
proved, one letter is given to Dean
Rea who presents it to the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee for final
judgment. The other letter is kept
in the social committee files.
The Student Affairs Commit-
tee sends 'the Social Committee
and the sponsor of the event no-
tification of approval or rejec-
tion. The event is then placed
on the social calendar. If there
is a conflict on a certain date,
the group applying first will re-
ceive the date.
The purpose of the Social Calen-
dar is to avoid conflicts, to keep
social functions spread throughout
the year, and to provide a place
where the semester may be seen at
a glance in order to learn the most
profitable time for planning an
