I I ^SriSSHTSM^iMl^^^^^^i« 1 I I i I si 1 i I I Student Senate Proposes New Course Evaluation Program by ELLEN EAVES Life News Editor Course evaluation was presented to Student benate last night in a report by the Educational Awareness Committee. Recommendations concerning what the evalua tion should cover, purposes of the evaluation, the form m which it should be administered and general questions to be included in the form were presented in a four-page report. A general outline of the committee's proposal consists of a pilot program to take place this semester m which three departments would take the survey. Results Only io Instructors The results of this initial survey would not be open to everyone, but only to the instructors whose classes would be surveyed to show that the survey can or cannot be objectively handled. According to the members of the Educational Awareness Committee, course evaluationis a "means of providing an oppormnity for the instructor to obtain reaction through an analytical critique of methods and materials used by him. "The purposes of course evaluation is to improve the content and quality of instruction by providing students with an authorized channel for expressing their opinions." In Pre-Primary Trip to Indiana Steve Banyan, chairman of the Educational Awareness Committee, said the puroose of the pilot program is to find any problems which might arise concerning the administration of the form, or rndradual questions on the form Then these problems can be solved so that it can be acceptable in the ruture on a University wide basis. Three Departments The committee hopes to conduct its initial program in three departments of the University. In. these^ departments, at a time selected by the instructor, the forms would be passed out during class. The instructor would leave the classroom and a section chairman" would then be in charge to oversee a specific amount of time to be allowed for completion of the evaluation. The forms will not be signed. ««. «.

The productions were staged on Ihursday and Friday night Shown are Johanna Platteschorre, Grandville junior and Thomas Sarr, Dearborn freshman in "Ransom of Red Chief." by PAM WEBB Life Staff Writer Forty CMU students traveled to Elkhart, Indiana this weekend with the Students for Robert F. Kennedy Committee. Sent primarily to canvass sections of Elkhart for possible Kennedy supporters, the work was in preparation for .the Indiana primary election May 7. The entire trip was financed by the National Kennedy for President Committee. Students left by bus Friday afternoon for Goshen College, a small Mennonite school in Goshen, thirty miles from Elkhart. They roomed with students at the school, who also helped in the canvassing. The city was divided into precincts and the students canvassed door to door to gain support for Senator Robert Kennedy as a presidential candidate. They were also asked to inquire what people believed was the major problem in the United States today and to distribute Kennedy materials. freshmen Re-elect REAL Ticket 'i \ It took two elections, but the sophomore class officers were finally elected in a special election conducted last week. Victorious at the polls were the present freshman class officers: president, Stan Olsen; vice president, George Heide; secretary, Candy Halli- li'l Union Reopened , Following four idle weeks of student protests end demonstrations, the South East Union was reopened by the administration for use to students. • According to" Richard Lichtenfelt, director of University and Food Services, the Union was reopened "due to some assurance that the rules ttquld be abided by- Some (south quad) dorm officers assured me this (the UC no-card playing pol- lcy) would be followed, so I said, okay, open it." (( Steve Rison, student body president, felt that .opening the Union and resolving the situation would be taken together. It was not." I Rison said that the major concern on the administrator's part was opening the Union. Rison's jjtoajor concern was "opening the Union and resolv- Pg the issue." \ Lichtenfelt went on to say, "We should have Plicies that we can work under and are fair and Suitable. What the students in the dorms wanted i^ndi were interested in is what is important." ; Lichtenfelt said if a student is caught playing Jards in either union, he will be asked to put his cards away and leave. If he refuses and can be jjentified, his name will be given to the Dean of ^udents office for disciplinary action. day and treasurer, Jody Rooney. All were reelected to their present posts. The special election was required due to a mix- up of names for secretary and treasurer on the ballots in the regular April 2 election. Votes from that election for the offices of sophomore class president and vice president were tabulated. But the votes for secretary and treasurer were disregarded. Sophomores only revoted for a secretary and treasurer at last week's election. Running against the REAL ticket was the SCORE ticket composed of Bill Joyner, Rick Hall, Kathy Craig and Sue Hughes. Olsen beat out Joyner for the presidency with 795 votes to 506. Hall was defeated by Heide 565 to 733. Candy Halliday, whose candidacy was challenged before Student Judiciary by Don Gregory, elections director, won with 443 votes over 267 for Kathy Craig for class secretary. Gregory ruled Miss Halliday's candidacy invalid because she forgot to sign one of the petition forms. However, his decision was over-ruled by the Student Judiciary. Jody Rooney defeated Sue Hughes with 407 votes to 305 for the office of treasurer. Two weeks ago Kathy Smith petitioned the Judiciary to have all four officers elected again on April 23 instead of just the two. She had been denied the right to vote in her dorm due to a shortage of ballots April 2. Student Judiciary, however, over-ruled Miss Smith's petition for several reasons. First, Miss Smith failed to present concrete evidence of negligence on the part of the election committee and secondly other voting places were open with ballots at which Miss Smith could have voted* . Dave Morse, Homer sophomore and organizer of the Students for Kennedy, reported that the trip was ua major factor in helping to stop Governor Brannigan. who is the favorite son candidate from the state of Indiana." He also reported that another trip is definitely scheduled for May 4-5 and over 8Q Central students are planning to attend. The canvassing will encompass South Bend, Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. Greg Merwin, vice president of the student body, noted that the Students for Kennedy "show a lot for our generation — that kids are not just sitting around letting others do it." Merwin also stated that a committee in support of Governor Nelson Rockefeller is being initiated, whether or not he declares his candidacy, in order "to show support for Rocky at. the national convention.** Students for Eugene McCarthy on campus attended the Wisconsin primary election April 12 in Madison. They also have been chstributing materials to interested students on campus. Cal Mott, Oxford junior and head of the Students for Richard M. Nixon committee at Central is "highly confident of the support at CMU for Nixon.*'" His steering committee of eight students has distributed pamphlets and posters to Nixon supporters and is considering the posability of attending a primary election during the summer. Representatives from the Michigan Students for Kennedy will be at Central this_ evening at 8 in Pearce 127. Draft Delay Possible Men in graduate school who are now eligible for induction under the new draft law may find a friend in Warriner HalL According to Olaf Yv*. Steg. dean of the School of Graduate Studies, "If a man in graduate school receives his induction notice daring a school session, we wiE do everything in our power to acquire a delay of induction so the student may finish his semester's work." A request for delay will not be made, however, unless it is requested by the student, Steg emphasized. Steg also explained that his office could do nothing about a student's reclassification. "Our primary concern is to allow graduate students to complete work in progress at the time they receive their draft notice," he said. "In most cases, this would entail an induction delay of about two months or less." Prior to adoption of the new policy, graduate students made their own requests for induction delays. The University had previously adopted a policy extending the length of time in which a drafted graduate student must complete his degree program. Under this policy the time extension for completion of the degree is equal to the length of the student's active duty in the military service.
