SL Attempts
Close Contact
With Dorms
Meeting Proceedings
Related to Residents
By Elected Chairmen
In an attempt to bring Student
Legislature in closer contact with
the women in the dormitories, a
system involving SL dorm chair-
men has been set up.
Initiated by SL member, Lee Fi-
ber, the system centers about
chairmen elected in each dorm to
attend SL meetings and carry in-
formation concerning its activi-
ties back to the dorms.
Started two weeks before peti-
tioning for SL began, this method
is expected to combat ignorance
of student government activities.
Each dorm chairman attends
the SL meetings and receives cop-
ies of the minutes and the agen-
das.
The chairmen then meet in a
body to discuss current problems
facing SL and ways to create in-
terest in its activities in the dorms.
Reports are then carried to
dorm house meetings or given to
corridor chairmen who discuss the
reports with the residents.
The dorm chairman system is
in effect in only the women's
dorms since men's dorms have re-
presentatives from the quad coun-
cils attending SL meetings.
SL feels that information about
its activities should be well-pub-
licized in the dorms especially
during election time.

everyone becomes completely wound up in

glamour "girls."

students can take time out from
their many activities and studies
to relax for a while.
Approximately 6 0 & students
drop in at the International Cen-
ter to chat with their friends each
week.
