Hatcher Pleased
By SGC Response
Vice-President Lewis Expresses Hope
For Early Action by Regents Board
University officials and student government study committee mem-
bers were impressed yesterday over final results of the two-day stu-
dent poll on Student Government Counch.
University President Harlan H. Hatcher and Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis both expressed pleasure over the size
of student response to the SGC referendum.
Calling the 5,102 to 1,451 margin for SGC impressive, Vice-Presi-
dent Lewis said he is very hopeful there will be action soon by the
Board of Regents.
The results of Wednesday's and Thursday's poll, will be presented
to the Regents at their Dec. 17 meeting.
Although making no comment on probability of Regental action,
President Hatcher said again there is no question of the Regents' sin-

cerity in trying to bring University
students responsible student gov-
Jones, Britton Pleased
Prof. Kenneth L. Jones of the
botany department and Prof. W.
Earl Britton of the engineering
school, both members of the stu-
dent government study committee,
were pleased over the strong stu-
dent backing for SGC.
"The vote indicated students
have interest in student govern-
ment and SGC is a reasonable start
toward that goal," Prof. Jones
Prof. Britton, happy over the
fine turnout of voters, expressed
pleasure over the clear-cut 3%-1i
decision. "I was afraid of a 3-2 vote
or even closer," he said.
Disappointed that only 36 per
cent of the studentsavotedwhen an
issue as important as SGC was on
'> the ballot, Student Legislature
President Steve Jelin, '55, still
called the large pro-SGC margin
Education of Voter
"It indicates no mistake in SGC
support," he said,."but I still have
reservations as to the education of
the voter."
"I feel many voted for SGC be-
cause of the tremendous campus
organizational drive for passing
the proposed Laing plan. Many vot-
ers voted for SGC without realizing
exactly what they were voting
for," Jelin continued.
Jelin said SL would now return
again to "watchful speculation."
"Since the two Regents members
most interested in SGC, Vera B.
Baits and J. Joseph Herbert, will
be absent Dec. 17 I personally very
much doubt it will pass at that
meeting," Jelin concluded.
Seeing no reason for SL not oper-
ating in the next few months, Vice-
President Lewis said he hopes SL
will think of the present situation
as a process of advance in student
SGC Elections in February
If the Regents pass SGC Dec.
17, Vice-President Lewis said pres-
ent ideas call for SGC elections in
"The SGC study committee
thought elections before the end of
the semester impossible because
of exam conflicts," he said.
A month would be needed after
elections to set up SGC and trans-
fer the SL and Student Activities
Committee functions to the new
organization, he continued.
"However, it would be best if
SGC were set up before the pres-
ent crop of student leaders leave
their posts because their experi-
ence will be valuable in getting
SGC under way," Vice-President
Lewis concluded.

Meanwhile in Washington, pub-

been proposed.
