hope that this body in its

first few months, will formulate
certain "groundrules" that will
guide them in their efforts.

government will be mainly to pass

1. The general scope of SGC's
activities should include those as-
pects of student life over which
there is concern.
SGC should be concerned with
all areas of University activity and
student activity so long as these
directly pertain to students. Such
things as calendaring, off-campus
housing problems, recognition of
organizations, etc. are of course
included; also included would be
the expression of student opinion
on all aspects of student life.
2. Primarily it seems that two
general areas are being under-em-
phasized: 1) communication with
the students and 2) communica-
tion with the Administration of
the University.
3. SGC fulfills the need for a
recognized all-campus form of stu-
dent government. It should work
with existing organizations but the
decisions of SGC with regard
to any organizational problems
should be final.
4. I have never been in favor
of student political parties on this
campus. Though perhaps they can
perform some function I see no
need for them at present and can

envision no way in which 'they
could assist SOC.
5. The Book Exchange should
be set up under SGC on the same
basis as it has been under the
Legislature-a non-profit group
whose officials would be appointed
by and responsible to the SGC.
Cinema Guild should~be set up
under a special board responsible
to SGC whose members are select-
ed by petitioning and interview.
It should be non-profit with most
of the money placed in the hands
of the sponsoring group. I do not
personally believe either of these
activities should be delegated
other student organizations.
With regard to the Executive
Wing such an organization is ab-
solutely necessary under SGC. I
would think that it would be under
an "Executive Wing Co-ordinator"
who may or may not be a member
of SGC.
it seems to me that a large
selling job will have to be done
to attract enough, students to
work on the Wing so that mem-
bers will not be forced to spend
too much time in this area.
HAZEL FRANK-President of As-,
1. The scope of SGC is large by
its very nature. It encompasses
the duties of SAC and SL, thereby
creating an all-campus govern-
2. I don't doubt SGC will work
on many and varied projects, but
the first big task it has is to or-
ganize. This latter word sounds
very compact to most people, but
I think that very few people have
any notion as to the long and per-
haps involved process it will bring
I believe when SGC finally does
get on its feet, it will probably
consider such things as the driv-
ing ban, rushing, the housing
problem, etc.
3. I feel that on questions that
concern the entire campus SGC
should have a vested interest.
SGC will have the power to dele-
gate to other groups if the or-
ganizations wish to accept the
delegated responsibility. While I
do feel that no group on this
campus is a separate entity, I do
not feel that SGC should have
financial or internal control over
other organizations.
4. The one campus political
party has been approved by SAC
and therefore, I feel it has 'its
place on SGC as do other repre-
sentatives. I do not see the need
for political parties, but this does
not effect the situation.
5. I feel Cinema Guild should
remain a function of the all-cam-
pus student government, and that
it should not be delegated to any
other group.

Overwhelming support of the

little doubt as to student support.
