Allocation of. the half-dollars
which week-end movie goers pay
at the Cinema Guild box office and
supervision of the behind-the-
scenes operations before a movie
gets to the screen are the chief
responsibilities of the Student Leg-
islature-Cinema Guild Board.
The Cinema Guild, a service pro-
ject which was taken over by SL
in the spring of 1950 when the Arts
Cinema League folded, serves a
dual function. It brings back old
movies which the board feels are
of interest to local movie goers and
it provides a source of funds for

manager who carries out board de-,

what movies are available.
Student sponsors are chosen on
the basis of three criteria:
)1 The degree to which the
activities aided by Cinema Guild
funds "affect the entire student
body or useful and charitable
2) Their relative need of funds.
3) The past record of the or-
ganization in similar undertak-
ings and the degree of respon-
sibility shown in handling funds
and promoting events.
A new policy for the distribu-
tion of Cinema Guild profits was
set up by the board last semester.
Its chief purpose, according to
Dave Gross, '56, chairman, was to
build up the Guild's insurance

TERMING himself a "trouble
shooter," Chalmers described his
work as traveling to different parts
of the country straightening out
problems in racial and religious
discrimination. He and his asso-
ciates often move into a com-
munity and work on not only dis-
crimination cases, but also ,on
problems in juvenile delinquency,
He says that in most commu-
nities where this work is done,
there is a 72 per cent decrease
in criminal activities.
Chalmers' trouble-shooting has
carried him over thousands of
miles, in this country and abroad.
He spent eighteen years in New
York's "Hell's Kitchen" and re-
cently saved an innocent boy from
Besides these activities, Chal-
mers is treasurer of the National
Association for the Advancement

It isn't too often that one has occasion to visit a few offices and
meeting rooms of student organizations, but when he does he makes
some disconcerting discoveries.
First of all he finds it difficult to uncover the home of a parti-
cular organization or activity. And when he finally finds it, he is
lucky if he can squeeze in and be noticed among the busy throng.
IF HE WANTS the office of the service fraternity, Alpha Phi
Omega, he asks around until he is told it is in the basement of the
Student Legislature Bldg. To get to it, he must wind around corridors
and struggle down narrow steps. He finds an oversized telephone
Doug Bailey, '56, AVO vice-president, describes the office as
inadequate for administrative work and impossible for meetings.
For meetings, the service fraternity obtains a room in the Union.
Such a room is adequate for meeting purposes, but it is often hard
to get one at an opportune time, according to Bailey.
The Gilbert and Sullivan Society has no definite meeting place,
but uses the League Ballroom for those meetings at which there is
a large number of people and other League meeting rooms for smaller
affairs. The Society's biggest headache, however, is the crowded fa-
cilities it has for constructing sets in the basement of the SL Buildng.
* * * *
MANY OF THE organizations that use Union rooms find them
inadequate. Some because of the difficulty in obtaining a meeting
room when they desire one, others because their offices in the Unon
are too small for the work they attempt to do.
The Interfraternity Council, with offices in Rm. 3-C of the
Union, is an example of an organization working undef crowded
conditions. According to John Baity, '55, executive vice-president,
each desk in the office is shared by three or four men. A long table
that seats about 15 is used for gatherings of 25 and 30.
Across the toitidor in Rm. 3-0
of the Union, the Glee Club holds
its practices under conditions that
hrProf. Philip Duey, director of the
Glee Club, describes as unsuitable.
2 The room is such that members
must sit in a wide semi-circle fac-
ing the longer side with the oppo-
site wall close at their'backs. This
makes for poor'acoustics and diffi-
culty in directing, explained Prof.
Connected to this long narrow
room is a tiny office where the Glee
Club carries on administrative ac-
tivities such as poster-making. Bob
McGrath, '54SM, considers the of-
fice much too small.

STANDING ROOM ONLY AT IFC STAFF MEETING
FOUR IFC STAFFERS PER DESK
'MUSIC STORAGE ROOM FOR THE GLEE CLUB
NEXT DOOR to the Glee Club
office is one of equal size used by
Union Opera. For administrative
purposes, it, too, is inadequate, ac-
cording to Mimes president Harry
Along the short hallway from
the Union Opera office to the
corridor is a door which opens to
a closet used by the Glee Club
for storing music. One look re-
veals the tight condition espec-
ially since other organizations
also use it for storage.
And office space is no better at
the League although the facilities
are an improvement because new
equipment and furniture were
placed in the offices after Christ-
One room containing two desks,
one table, a few chairs, and two
bulletin boards is shared by Pan-
helleic Association and Assembly
Association. During office hours,
there is often hardly any room to
move around according to Panhel
President Martha Hill, '54.
Many other organizations; such
as Sphinx, Triangles, other honor-
aries and political clubs, have no
definite meeting places, but must
rely on their chances of obtaining
one of the Union's or League's
meeting rooms when they need
one. And it is often difficult to
get ,one at the right time.
Often an organization needs a
larger room than any of these and
must attempt to obtain the Union
or League ballroom-not always
an easy matter.
A further difficulty in holding
meetings in rooms other than its
offices is an organization's task of
carrying records and other para-
phenalia to and from the meet-
ings. This trouble is even more pro-
nounced for those that have no
office at all.
Gilbert and Sullivan Society,
Sphinx, and many others do not
have an office. All records and
papers, in these cases, are kept
at the home of an officer of the
organization and must be trans-
ported to and from the meetings.
It is not hard to imagine the ad-
ministrative difficulties of these
