University, though it is not offi-
cially entitled to authorize elec-

through the Union student offices.
A Student-Faculty-Administra-
tion Conference is held each year,
in which an opportunity is given
these important segments of the
University community a chance to
sit and discuss common problems
on an informal basis. The purpose
of 'this conference is to help iron
out any difficulties among them.
Tutors Available
A complete, up-to-date file of
available student tutors who have
excelled in one or more fields of
learning is kept in the Union stu-
dent offices. This is an important,
though little known service ren-
dered by the Union.
At various dates during the
course of -each academic year out-

authorities in a specialized field
are invited to speak by the Union.
They either give talks or partici-,
