four groups, handling the spheres
of Student Activities, National
and International Affairs, Educa-
tion and Social Welfare, and Pub-
lic Relations.
Among the recent projects of the
Student Affairs Committee has
been an investigation into the es-

Concerned with education, SGC
has a number of committees work-

and improvements" n the system.
Already, program planning
sheets are available in counselors'
offices to aid the planning and
evaluation of students' courses.
The committee is also consider-
ing changes in the literary cata-
logue and the feasibility of letting
juniors and seniors sign their own
elections cards.

being studied with attention to
their membership and activities.
The SGC committee is seeking
to determine how student partici-
pation could be made more effec-
tive, particularly in gathering stu-
dent opinion.
SGC is also looking into the uses
made of the student evaluations of
the faculty made last year.

SGC Gains
Added Depth
From NSA
Linking Michigan to college stu-
dents throughout the world, Stu-
dent Government Council active-
ly participates in the National
Student Association.
More than 300 American col-
leges and universities belong to
the NSA, which in turn sends rep-
resentatives to the Inter-American
Student Congress and the Inter-
national Student Conferences.
High point of NSA activities is
the annual National Student Con-
gress that brings some 700 stu-
dent leaders together for work-
shop and policy meetings.
Michigan, and other schools en-
rolling more than 10,000 students,
sends seven delegates and seven
alternates each to the annual
In August, the University will
play host to this year's Congress.
Ideas Exchange
"The exchange of ideas from the
Congress is perhaps one of the or-
ganization's biggest values," Anne
Woodard, '57, SGC National and
International Affairs Committee
chairman said yesterday.
A participant in last summer's
Congress in Chicago, Miss Wood-
ard observed that "Michigan and
other schools gain a great deal
from the NSA, benefiting by ideas,
personnel and literature stemming
from the organization."
An important service of the
group is the Student Government
Information Service. Serving as a
clearing house to provide data, it
helps student governments solve
various problems.
Even more essential are NSA's
attempts to solve the urgent prob-
lems confronting colleges in gen-
Special study commissions have
been set up in academic freedom,
human relations and rising enroll-
ment areas.
Solutions Sought
Gathering information, con-
tacting individuals and seeking
solutions, NSA- works through
clinics and workshops.
In addition to dedicating itself
to "guarantee to all people equal
rights and possibilities for educa-
tion," the NSA Constitution lists
the aim to "develop better educa-
tional standards."
Active in attempts to improve
faculties and teaching methods,
NSA is the only student member of
the American Council on Educa-
tion and has the only, student rep-
resentative to the White House
Conference on Higher Education.
British Hosts
Early in November 1945, the
British National Union of Stu-
dents played host to a two-day in-
ternational student meeting in
London. Almost immediately af-
terwards, on November 17, the
Prague Congress met to also pro-
mote student cooperation.
From these meetings, there de-
veloped the first World Student

Congress held in Prague during
the summer of 1946. From this
sprang the International Union of
The United States still did not
have a national representative
student giroup, but the 24 Ameri-
can participants gathered some
500 delegates from 294 schools and
colleges at a Christmas vacation
meeting in Chicago.
The students laid plans for a
constitutional convention for the
following summer, and in 1947,
the National Student Association
was born at the University of Wis-
