SGC Request Started 'U' Calendar Committee
(Editor's Note: This is the second
in a series of articles on the Uni-
versity calendar. Today's article re-
views the student role on the calen-
daring committees and the work of
Student Government Council.)
By VERNON NAHRGANG
The initiative to set up the
present University committee on
the academic calendar came from
the Student Government Council
at its March 7, 1956' meeting.
Formulated at SGC's request,
the committee met twice last fall
and plans not to meet again until
the present calendar has been in
use for at least three semesters.
However, University students
had taken part in work on the
academic calendar prior to the re-
cent attempt to set up a standing
committee on the calendar.
Consequently, in May, 1956,
SGC requested Assistant to the
President Erich A. Walter "to es-
tablish a standing committee on
the University Academic Calen-
dar to include members from the
faculty, administration and stu-
In support of the request, an
SGC statement said it "believes
that a great deal of controversy
has arisen . . . Many elements of

shown concern about this revi-

a committee as:
"1) Observations of the new
calendar in a working environ-

"We thought the first meeting
would be more of an organiza-
tional meeting," Givelber said
yesterday, "but the committee
was adjourned at this time.
"It was expressed by some oth-
ers during the meeting," he ex-
plained, "that some perspective
was needed and the calendar
should be discussed after not less
than three nor more than five
"Evidently," Givelber contin-
ued, "the University didn't accept
the idea of a working committee
on the calendar. We had hoped at
least that the work of the pre-
vious committee would be made
available to us."
A second meeting of the com-
mittee was called unexpectedly,
However, Givelber has already
said he believes the three-semester
