and will sometimes

charge account in a local store for
some of his "boys."
Occasionally, these interests de-
velop far beyond any mere intent
to win or lose football games. In
one instance, the relationship
seems to have become a paternal
one, where the sponsor has sup-
plied additional needed funds long
after graduation.
Discourages Practices
-Despite, these practices, the
University seems to be working to
eliminate them wherever they
occur. One coach, according to
one of his athletes, actively dis-
courages illegal interests where-
ever he sees them developing.,
And the practice of giving funds
to athletes seems to prevail far
less here than at many other
schools. The University was a
le'ader in promoting the Big Ten
aid plan which attempts to give
some moral basis for providing
athletes with the necessary finan-
cial aid for their education and
nothing more.
Almost every athlete inter-
viewed said he could have either
received a much better financial
"deal" at some other school, or
that a good friend of his was do-
ing Just that.
But eachl_ athlete interviewed
said that his choice of school de-,
pended on the fact he could get
a better education at the Univer-
sity than anywhere else.

tion, and said this was one reason
why he is running.
Bruce McRitchie, '59, called for
the right of initiative and referen-
dum for students. Students could
thus bring issues before SGC when
they felt it necessary.
A referendum would have been
valuable on such matters as Cam-
pus Chest and the literary college
honor system, McRitchie said.
Change Representation
SGC is not effective in voicing
student opinion, Fred Merrill, '59,
told Delta Gamma. He suggested
the Council might change to a
constituency basis for representa-
He termed student apathy the
Council's main problem.
Dick Oggers, '59, urged the alio-
lition of the Hare System of vot-
ing. He is in favor of plurality
elections, he told Sigma Kappaf
sorority. "The preferential ballot
has no place at the University,"
he said.
Criticizes Judicial
The Hare System is one of the
major causes of student apathy,
he said, because students are un-
able to understand how it works.
SGC should not have judicial as
well as legislative functions, Sue
Rockne, '59, told Scott House. She
suggested its power to judge cases
could be passed to Joint Judiciary
At present, there is a great.
duplication of effort among SGC
and other a6tivities, Miss Rockne
said. She cited the 'M' Handbook
and the organization handbooks
as one case of overlapping effort.
Board Proposed
Roger Seasonwein, '61, called for
a board, headed by the Adminis-
trative Vice-President, to coordi-
nate SGC and the Administrative.
Wing. Council meetirgs should
also be simplified, he said; this
would lead to greater efficiency,

and in turn to Improved relations
with the administration.
SGC should work more in old
matters, rather than "explore new
ones, and do another half-hearted
job," Seasonwein said. He also
called for greater personal contact

bewteen the Council and the stu-
David Taylor, '60, said the
Council should study its internal
structure. SGC was duplicating its!
efforts, and had too much red'
tape, he said.
Conformity Criticized
SGC was charged with lacking
diverse opinions by Mort Wise,
'59. Members were too willing tol
go along with each other, he said.
The Council should also be en-
larged to "20 or 25" members, in-
cluding the president of ISA.
Lois Wurster, '60, said the Coun-
cil's chief duty was to keep in
communication with the student
Phil Zook, '60, said. SGC did not
need a written constitution be-
cause its powers come from the
administration, which can take
them away at its own discretion.
Further limitations by way of a
constitution would be unwise, he
told Scott House.
Cut Committees
SGC is not functioning well,
Steve Bailie, '60, told Phi Gamma
Delta fraternity. SGC needs to do
some legislative work on the cam-
pus he said; the committees should
be cut down and reduced in size.
Service projects could be dele-
gated to other groups, he said.
(Bailie also faid spring rush, not
fall, would jeopardize the positions
of the smaller houses on. campus.)
SGC needs stronger representa-
tion from affiliated students, ac-
cording to Peter Brown, '60. He
would make it his business td see
the affiliates had this representa-
tion, he told Panhel open house.
At present, only five or six Coun-
cil members are affiliated, he said.
(Ten of the Council's 18 members
are affiliated.)
Budget Wasted
Sixty to 70 per cent of SGC's
budget is wasted every year, SGC
Treasurer Scott Chrysler, '59BAd,
told Panhel. The budget of $10,000
as presently established, does not

reach all the students, he said. He
urged a re-evaluation of the Coun-
cil's expenditures.
If SWC were to go into the area
of direct student problems, much
of the Council's communications
and public relations difficulties
difficulties would be alleviated,
Ron Gregg, '80, said. This could be
done by initiating student projects,
such as a course evaluations book-
let and a student bookstore, he
told Martha Cook.

A Campus Workshop on Reli-
gion, sponsored by the Council of
Student Religious Organizations,

cording to Dick Nash, '58, chair-
man of the Council.
After dinner students will have
the opportunity to form inter-re-
ligious seminars to discuss the
topic, "Religion -- A Better Guide
to Human Relations?, Nash said.
This workshop is, the combined
effort of several campus organiza-
tions, Nash added.

The area "of alumni activity in
alil universities is one very diffi-
cult to police. As a matter of fact,
in the entire legislation 'of the
Western Conference there is no
specific reference to "alumni or
an alumnus." No disciplinary or
punitive action can be assessed
against an overzealous alumnus or
'one who is not familiar with rules
and regulations.
- We have the good fortune at
Michigan not to have the problem
of overzealous alumni. Every ef-
fort is made to discour'age illegal
practices and in general, our
alumni have responded favorably
to these efforts.
Professor Plant and I earnestly
requested names and sources of
information referred to in the ar-

refusal. If it is true ,that the boy
from the foreign country men-
tioned money for participating in
sports in his home community,
then he falsified a statement over
his signature before the 'Eligibili-
ty Committee. The same would
hold for athletes whose bills were
paid or who received any money
directly from an alumnus.
In any case of a falsified state-
ment the athlete becomes 'ineli-
gible. Proper enforcement of rules
is difficult if people are willing to
divulge information but rests with
open indictments or innuendos.
