of our constituents. In dealing
with open houses we have gone
through the proper channels and
we've been refused. Therefore,
. when the channels dont work we
are a mandatedtogoaroundthose
channels even;if it.means civil

The body also carried a resolution sponsored by Kedzierski
whereby President William B.
Boyd would be asked to present
"the senate'' reasons why.students were not included in the
planning of the new health service." —
Kedzierski said the facility will
be financed through student fees
and in his resolution asked that
'•the Student Senate be assured

Two student cases were cited
by Boyd which would apply to bis

The other case is the "Phantom"
student who shows _up in class
only for examination day. Each
maintains a good grade point average and reaches a high level
of work if allowed to study independently.

centered around the continuing
battle of a new University Senate constitution. Toe hassle

composed of the president, provost/- deans, faculty and six
students elected from Student
