To Feature
Freshman Rendezvous, spon-
sored this year by the University
Office of Religious Affairs, will of-
fer incoming freshmen a chance to
become acquainted with campus
leaders, outstanding faculty mem-
bers, and extra-curricular activi-
ties on campus.
The Rendezvous is a camp for
freshmen held the three days just
before orientation week begins. It
is planned especially to give new
students an opportunity to think
ahead about problems they will
meet on campus and to meet class-
mates they will face them with.
Addition of a special discussion

highlighted by talks from Bill Ad-
ams, '57 BAd., and Janet Neary,
'58, president and vice-president
of the Student Government Coun-
cil respectively, will feature this
year's rendezvous. For the first
time, the camp will be planned in
cooperation with Interfraternity
Council, Panhellenic, Inter-House
Council, and Assembly.
President Harlan Hatcher of the
University will welcome the fresh-
men at registration in Ann Arbor
the first morning. From there,
they will proceed to their respec-
tive camps. They will be intro-
duced to such members of the
U n i v e r si t y administration as
James A. Lewis, vice-president for
student affairs, Deborah Bacon,
dean of women, and officials from
the Dean of Men's office.
Included in the program will be
special discussions with members
of the University faculty on var-
ious special interests, such as en-
gineering, medicine, s c i e n c e,
psychology and political science.
Socially, there will be square and
social dancing and cabin skits.

DAC Begins
Third Year
Dramatic Arts Center will begin
its third year this fall, continuing
its theater-in-the-round tradition.
Organized as a non-profit or-
ganization, the Center is headed
by a 15-member Board of Direc-
tors, consisting of University fac-
ulty members and townspeople.
The Center was started by a
group of local citizens who bought
the Arts Theatre Club assets, an
organization that closed three
years ago. ,
Last year's productions included
"Thieves' Carnival," "The Seagull,"
Nritya Darpan-Dances of India,
and other plays by Moliere, George
Bernard Shaw and T. S. Eliot.
Associated with the Center are
various other groups, such as the
Junior Arts Theater, in coopera-
tion with the Ann Arbor Public
Schools, and the Ann.Arbor play-
reading group, which meets once
a month.
Also related to DAC is the Ann
Arbor Art Association. Art ex-
hibits are put up regularly by its
members, and can be viewed even
during DAC performances.
Performers are hired from sev-
eral areas and some have been
seen on television's Kraft Theater.

On the eve of the national pres-
idential election, WCBN will re-
main on the air all night.
News coverage is by United
Press teletype service. Broadcasts
of campus events are done with
a remote unit, a suitcase-like box
containing microphones, cables
and equipment for transmitting to
one of the network studios, located
in East, West and South Quad-

SGC Shows
Impact In
First Year
(Continued from Page 1)
ommendations of a special Study
Committee set up a few weeks be-
fore. This committee had carefully
investigated problems related to
establishment of fees, enforcement
and adjudication of the regula-
tions. The regulations will go into
effect in September, as will the
new enforcement rulings.
Unify Campus Drives
In March the Council heard a
proposal to unify all campus fund
drives into one, to be known as the
Campus Chest. In a manner simi-
lar to the Community Chest, this
drive would eliminate the prob-
lems of students being requested
to contribute to a different drive
every few weeks.
SGC also sponsored a chartered
plane to Europe, which enabled
students and faculty members to
go abroad for approximately $300
round trip.
These were only highlights of
SGC's active first year on campus.
The Council is hopeful that it
will be able to extend its influence
and responsibility into many dif-
ferent areas.
