Truateea Rachael Moreno and Margaret Ann Riecker will be available to conduct 'close-range, interpersonal" meetings, Moreno said. The meeting was originated by Chairman Raymond LaBounty in a prepared statement from the Board of Truateea Office. The Board Chairman, Mr. LaBounty, haa asked Ma. Moreno, aa chair of the Assessment and - Development Committee, to serve aa the board's direct liaison with the campus community in matters pertaining to the presidential search." - Moreno said Thursday the meeting waa scheduled to expand communication opportunities by providing individual contact with trustees. "Not everyone that would like to communicate with the board can do it in a public audience setting," Moreno said. Individuals cam present opinions, suggestions and* criticisms to the board, Moreno said. "My personal goal is to do as good a job as possible of bringing information to the board." Moreno said, adding the meetings should allow her to recosmi problem areas and issues the board must deal with. The board's statement said, "Ms. Moreno and Mrs. Riecker will be pleased to talk with individuala and groups and to receive written communications to the Board of Trustees." Moreno said she also would attend the senate forum to allow individuals attending the group discussion to address her aa a board member. "Information garnered from both activities will be important to the board," Moreno aaid. Riecker could not be reached for comment, but in an earlier interview confirmed she would attend the senate forum. Trustee Alice Tomboulian said Thursday she also would attend the open forum. "It's very important that if people are upset that we should be there to hear them," she said. Although Tomboulian would not speculate what the forum might accomplish, she said. The opportunity for people to tell the board their concerns will solve one problem — lack of communication." Trustees Mitch Kehetian, Gordon Lambie and William Odykirk will not attend the forum because of previous engagements. Trustees Bemadine Denning and LaBounty could not be reached for comment. The open house with Moreno and Riecker will be conducted in the Bovee University Center Hall of Fame Room from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the senate forum will be in the Moore Hall Kiva at 4 joaing ine meeting should allow her to recognh* p m — ~_" * — ««» ~va Faculty, student teach-in focuses on U.S. actions A teach-in with faculty and and Libva."

Elections Committee Director Myk Riemersma 6aid he is disappointed in the number of petitions taken from the SGA office. So far 16 prospective candidates have obtained petitions. The group had problems last year also, as only 13 candidates entered the representative's race to fill 15 positions. Three representatives are elected for each of five districts Riemersma said he would rather see positions filled during the elections. If all positions are not filled, the executive board must appoint representatives. Because many students left campus for Easter, the election deadline was changed from last Thursday to this Wednesday to give students more time to collect signatures. "I don't think a student entering at this late a date will be affected," Riemersma said. Students entering the race must obtain 100 student signatures for district representative positions and those vying for president and vice president must supply 500. President and vice president run as a team. Students may start campaigning before returning their petitions. Riemersma said. Only one team has registered to run for president and vice president. SGA Vice President Pam Weaver, Warren junior, is running for president and District Two Representative Chris Hafke. ISee "Petition"—page 14 Moammar) Khadafy. and were successful," Dunn said.

"The actual deadline is past. It was March 20," Receivable Accounting Manager Jane Johnson said. "Everyone who is left may be potentially withdrawn." Delinquent bills owed to the University this semester amount to about $728,000, Johnson said. Last year at this time, 2,254 students were issued final notices to pay outstanding bills which totaled about $970,000. Johnson said the number of students who owe the University money is about the same as other years. Johnson said students may be able to escape the withdrawal process if they pay their bills today. "It takes a while to generate the withdrawals. We have written letters to all those who are left saying if they pay by Monday, they will avoid the administrative process," she added. Receivable Accounting has notified 1,621 students who did not pay their bills, Johnson said. University policy states students who owe more than $100 are subject to withdrawal, Johnson said. "What that means is if they are late in paying their bills, they will be withdrawn from their classes at the University," she said. Johnson said consequences of not paying outstanding University debts such as library fines, phone bills and room and board payments are extensive. "Those who are living on campus will not continue to live on campus. Those who have authorization codes will not be able to make any long distance calls on the University telephones, and will have their codes invalidated," Johnson said. Withdrawn students may not return to classes for the remainder of the school year, however they may re-enroll in classes next semester, provided they pay all previous bills, she said. Johnson said she expects almost all students on the list to pay their debts before being withdrawn. Last year few people were withdrawn, she added. Many students will pay just before the last minute. Many are only waiting for financial aid, she said. "In the.past, the vast majority, almost all students have paid their bills," Johnson said. If students have questions about their bills' or extenuating circumstances are the reason for unpaid bills, they should contact the Accounts Receivable Office in Warriner 110.
