preparation and a couple of hours

of lawyers and professors, four
Law School juniors last night won
the semi-final round of the Camp-
bell case club competition.
The team of Donn Miller and
Theodore St. Antoine and the
team of Dave Belin and Hugh
Harness will compete April 29 for
the coveted Henry M. Campbell
Plaque in the finals of the annual
Law School contests.

To Be Held
The first of this semester's ser-

will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday

It is under the direction of the

of the college, is holding the con-

Coordinator of the group's ac-

Dean Robertson explained that
the "intention of the conference
is not primarily to affect reforms
but to insure that when changes
are made, the college is fully
aware of the implications and im-
pact of the changes on the stu-
dents, and that the students, in
turn, gain a clearernotion of the
complexity of running a college."
Although the conferences will
again be open to the public, the
committee has sent special invita-
tions to 60 students whom they
think represent a cross-section of
the campus and will give a fair
sampling of student views.
