M Made by Ad hoc Committee amendments and a'proposed ordinance explaining the areas of misconduct in which the University will be able to discipline.

Last fall AWS polls and survey board formulated a* poll to circulate to all women students concerning their feelings about women's hours. The circulation of this poll was abandoned because the university housing committee was considering the possibility of 2 a.m. permission for all women students. Concerning liberalization of hcjurs, Dee Boersma, president of AWS, said, "It has been the policy of AWS throughout the years to advocate the liberalization of hours, but not the complete eliminating." AWS is responsible for the 12 midnight permission oh Sunday and 2 a.m. permission on weekends for those students over 21. Miss Boersma believes that perhaps this is the time to reevaluate women's hours. i^mimmm^m^^m^^M^^^^ (Photo by Olmstead) , WOMEN STUDENTS will beable to vote today in their dorms at meal time for one of these two Associated Women Students presidential - candidates.

The recommended, amendment varies from the original in that actions or offenses committed outside the physical boundaries of the University, by a student not representing the University, are not„ subject to disciplinary or corrective actions on the part of the University. Light Shed on Orphanage Debt by .PAMM WEBB Life Staff Writer . " Why was the matter of a debt incuured" three years ago, now totaling $2,459, only recently brought to the attention of Central's Korean Orphanage Committee? Light was shed on this and many other questions Tuesday at a special open meeting of the - committee. Corn Sow Song, director of the orphanage, sent word by way of Chon Su Chong, formerly of Korea and now studying at CMU, to explain the debt situation to' the committee. ,_^___«_____ Chong reported that Song avoided notifying the committee of the debt because he "wanted to try to settle the debt alone. He kept it a secret in order to save face." Pamela Sow- ton, Lapeer senior and chairman of the committee, asked Chong why the budget did not state anything about the debt itself. Chong .reported that he did not know, but again referred to the idea of saving face. Evidence has led the committee" to believe, however, that the budgets sent to the committee by Song in former years, have been fraudulent, as Song completely avoided the issue of a debt of any kind. The committee has decided to postpone paying the debt until further investigation is conducted. The original medical report on the young boy injured in an accident, which is the initial cause of the debt, is being investigated by a local doctor to determine its authenticity. ' Song is being contacted, informing him. of the delay and the gravity of the situation. Possible Investigation The American Korean Foundation is being contacted to see if an investigation can be conducted at the orphanage itself. These procedures should postpone the decision at least one month. Two years ago, the committee received a request from Song for $2,000, to buy a hotel next to the orphanage to be used as sleeping quarters for the children. According to Chong, no .children from the, orphanage are living in the hotel. Instead, tourists and the general public stay there and pay rent. Chong was asked to estimate how much of -the money ($450) sent each month was used for the support of the children and how much of it was used to pay off the debt. "I would guess about 50-50," reported Chong. Looking for Some Changes? Women's hours and student's Tights will be the main topics of discussion at the Open Meeting tomorrow night in Pearce 127 at 8 p.m. All students, faculty, and administration are invited to attend this the second open meeting to discuss the Student Bill of Rights ancTResponsibil- ities and other related items. Rison Not Candidate For April Election Not wanting to get in any trouble, Pamm and At last night's Student Senate meeting, Student Body President Steve Rison announced that he would not run for re-election in April. Rison said, "I would like to announce at this time that I am not now nor will I'be in the futura a candidate for re-election to the student body presidency. "Apparently speculation oh my possible candidacy has caused some to fabricate my motives for the student rights movement. Tests show political concerns hamper the gains we are making in student rights. I find it necessary to make m^r position in regards to possible re-election clea**'* ' < i f ' J •}', ■ !! , J ■ i f' tt ••,(- >i 5 , >t ■Mi ■):■ , f • i „ H Mj$;r i ■■» r i »' , 'i I l! • i , K1 i •1.
