TTie controversy stems from the Office of Student Life's denial to allow the Rev. Tom Jones, of the Wesley Foundation, to move a hut to the Bovee University Center Tuesday morning. Wesley Foundation members have been praying for peace in Central America in the hut. However, President Arthur Ellis said Sunday University policy is to allow banners to be placed in front of the UC and decided "we should keep it that way," so he denied the request. Kris Hahn. Mount Pleasant junior, said she has spent time in the hut and wants people to see it so they know there are two sides to the issue. Representatives of the Nicaraguan Contras are scheduled to speak at Warriner Auditorium 2 p.m. Tuesday. The Contra resistance is fighting the Sandinista hovernment of Nicaragua. Contra supporters claim the Sandinista government is backed by the Soviet Union and is a threat to U.S. security.

And the committee has completed its first phase of screening for 24 candidates. Chairman Donald Bertsch said. Bertsch. director of the Counseling Center, said no new nominations came in last week. "The waterfall has been shut off," he said. The Board of Trustees Search Committee has read folders for 48 candidates and classified 16 as non-candidates. Non-candidates are those considered to have not met the criteria for president. The Screening Committee has reviewed folders for 24 candidates and classified nine as non-candidates. Twelve non-candidate folders also have been reviewed. The Board is responsible for the initial screening. The Screening Committee then reviews the Board's classifications and may request rejected candidates be considered. and may begin the second phase of screening. But if the Board completes reviews of more candidates, the Screening Committee will look at those fust, he said. "Part of the problem is you keep getting new folders in," he said. Bertsch said the committee probably will be in the first phase of screening with some candidates and in the second phase with others. "Once we get through all the folders they give us we're just going to have to get going on that second phase," he said. In the second phase, candidates will be asked to submit written responses to a list of questions. The proposed presidential search timetable calls for the committee to narrow the list of candidates to 15 by Nov. 15. Bertsch said the process of review by the Board Search Committee can't begin until candidates send information to the University. "A person really doesn't become eligible for review until their folder is complete," he said. Bertsch, professor of counseling. The committee is scheduled to said the committee could catch up discuss candidates in closed with the Board this week or next, session Wednesday. *■ Four SGA resignees blame lack of time by SALLY GIRARD LIFE Staff Wnicr D In the past two weeks, four Student Government Association representatives resigned because time contraints prevented them from fullfilling their obligations. All of the resigning representatives said at the beginning of the semester they did not foresee the amount of work SGA would generate. SGA President Ann AuxTinee said she doesn't think students realize being an representative involves more than attending weekly meetings. Board members must keep three office hours, work on — or chair — committees and be involved in three organizations outside their district. SGA Vice President Frank Tizedes said. Appointing new board members slows SGA down for awhile, but the quality of the replacements has been excellent, AuxTinee, St. Joseph senior, said. "(The number of resignations) disturbs me. but I can't let it consume me," she said. Tizedes, Soulhgate senior, said he agreed with AuxTinee in that students are not aware of how- much time and effort it takes to be a representative. "I'm a little disappointed (about the resignations), but I can understand their position," Tizedes said. David Lascu, assistant director of the Office of Student Life, said students do not always understand what is required of representatives and that may be the reason behind mid-semester resignations. He said board members may not have known what they were getting into. There are only 15 "(The number of resignations) disturbs me, but I can't let it consume me." Ann AuxTinee SGA president representatives, which makes for a lot of overlapping duties, he said. This has affected SGA before. "In the past, SGA has not been as effective as it should have been," he said. But now. the organization is trying to do more for the students and is finding it cannot handle it, which could be another reason for the resignations, l-ascu said. One way Lascu proposes to solve the problem is to have an orientation session with next year's candidates before the eletions in the spring to let them know exactly what they will be up against. Joni Phillips, of district two, who gave up her position Oct. 6, was the first to resign. Phillips, Troy sophomore, had recently taken a job and was working 25 to 30 hours a week. She said she tried to juggle everything for two weeks, but found she could not handle it. She said plans to continue to work on committees and help SGA in any way possible. Robert Conkey, also of district two, and Donna Gent of district one. resigned their positions Oct. 13.
