s«Sw ' Life Administrations Editor An estimated total ol over 200 student cases of an "unknown illness" have* been reported over the last three days by Gentral-'s 17 resident advisors. Resident assistants, however, claim there are manv more cases.than: 'the- total- indicates as most ; Sudents especially, men, do not report illnesses p to their'R.A.'s or housotaothers. Dr. Russell Ragan, health sefcvice 'director, reports that over the weekeftd 60 students were treated for what he calls ah intestinal flu. Ragan said that the flu lasts about 24 hours but that it will take a couple of weeks before it makes its run on campus. "It is safe to say everyone on campus has this flu, but not everyone gets sick," he said. Ragan pointed out that immunization won't ^do- any good and that plenty of rest in bed is the best cure. Many, of the affected students report they became ill after eating the "Mexican Fiesta" dinner served uv the food commons last "Wednesday. Others claim-that it was the shrimp dinner served Friday evening. South Quad Hardest Hit Over three-fourths of the stricken students reside in the South Quad. It was from there that rumors originated that students had been food poisoned. Ragan denies that food poisoning exists on campus and puts the cause of the illnesses on a spreading virus. Some students, however, claim that they were told by health service officials that they were food poisoned. Joel Webb, Pleasant Ridge sophomore, said that a doctor at the Center told him that he was food poisoned. Other students said that-a nurse informed them that their condition was a result of food poisohihg"." 7 — • "Hbng iSoag" Flu Ragan also said there is no epidemic of -'Hong Kong" flu spreading through campus aa rumored by students. He said that it would be at least six weeks before a laboratory diagnosis could show what affected the students. Ragan said that if the students were food poisoned they would be a lot sicker than what they ares- Health Service Crowded * Mrs. Mary Lietzke, Merrill Hall advisor, said that health service officials told her not to send her inflicted residents to the service to stay overnight unless their temperature was. over 102 degrees as they didn't have the room to accommodate them. Don Schnell, resident assistant at Thorpe Hall, said out of 125 men" in three corridors, 20 were affected by "the illness. 1 I m 1 w as i 1 i 5$ n CHIPS WIN THRILLER, RECORD BROKEN p. 6 m m i m ~W VOL. 49, NO. 17 CENTRAL MICHIGAN 'UNIVERSITY, MT. PLEASANT, MICHIGAN Tuesday, Oct. 29,1968 I I 1 f 38= m TRICK OR TREAT? p. 4 § by SANDY DRAKE Life Managing Editor Faculty members agreed last week to reevaluate their revised University Senate Constitution after hearing President "William B. Boyd announce that it wasn't representative of the entire University and it presumed involvement in too many areas of University operation. Boyd announced his two major criticisms at a general faculty meeting where he said that the Twelve Entries Place revised constitution was concerned with "Virtually all areas of operation — educational, judicial, legislative, and fiscal but no such delegation of overall authority has ever been made or could be made," to the Senate. Representation Not Adequate He also pointed out that the representation in the constitution was not adequate for all facets of the University community because some faculty groups, students, administrators, and service staff members were under-represented constituencies. "We are witnessing a participation explosion," # rwms, ijispiuf Omega Chi and Pi Kappa Phi won the Homecoming parade grand prize for their entry in Saturday's parade, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner,"-which showed a Chippewa Indian carving a redbird. "Winner of the most beautiful float trophy was Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Sigma Epsilon,fusing the theme of "Yellow Submarme." The second place plaque" was won by Alpha Chi Omega and Theta Chi-with their float, titled" "Records of the Past." Best Presentation/©! Theme The first prize for best presentation of theme was won by Sigma Sigma Sigma and Sigma Chi with "Ban the Birds."; Alpha Sigma Alpha and Sigma Pi won second prize for their float theme of "Crusaders for Freedom." * ' Sixteen residence halls and six Greek houses participated in house display competition. In Greek competition, Tau Kappa Epsilon won nrst place with their display titled, "Tighten Up." Second prize was won by Theta Chi fraternity with their display, "Chips Twist By the Redbirds as They Stroll Down the Field." Mersrill Wim-ite JtMi Year Grand prize winner in dorm competition was the Thorpe Hall display of "The Good, the Bad n****!a¥$ mmm and the Ugly." First place trophy for the most beautiful display went to Ronan, who used the theme of "Come on Chips, Light Our Fire." Tate's display, "Indian Lake ... A Scene We'll Make," won second prize. For the fifth year in a row, Merrill Hall won one of the first prizes for dorm displays. Their display, "The Beat Goes On," was awarded first place trophy in the best presentation of theme classification. Calkins Hall won second prize with "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." Boyd explained, and "decision making has become far more difficult and elaborate. Opportunity must be provided for the wide-spread participation now demanded, yet it must be done in a way that does not prove wasteful of energies or of expertise. The quality of our decisions must remain the prime concern, based on adequate involvement of those affected by the decisions." He suggested that alternatives seemed to be a "faculty Senate," with a restricted membership whose voice in academic matters would carry spe- citl weight, or a "University Senate" with a much " bWaderied membership. Co-existing with a "faculty Senate" would be student government, the administrative council and the various employee associations. Committee Considering Alternatives "The University Senate should not claim primacy in the full spectrum of problems which affect the University community, whether it broadens its membership or not," Boyd said. The original University Senate Constitutional Revision Committee is now considering these alternatives. Boyd also announced two changes in present administrative procedures. Deans of the six schools of the University are now meeting with the President's Council (the Council includes the President, the three Vice Presidents and the Dean of Student Personnel Services), and a Faculty Advisory Council has been appointed to meet on call with the President and to serve as a sounding board for the entire institution in problem-solving. A 1969-1970 school operating budget of $18.8 Million has been submitted to the Michigan Legislature by the Board of Trustees. This is $3.68 million over the amount- alloted- for this year's school operating budget. ' Net state appropriations being sought for operations in 1969-70 total $12.78 million. The rest would come from fees, grants, gifts and CMU en- . Uprises. ■ * •». » A $12^2 million capital outlay budget was also ^quested. Major projects in mind under the 1969- '" 5Wal outlay budget, are: % i«72,7 milhon for a social science building; JM2.1 million for the first rahase of a health- wysical education-recreation facility, and $1.7 mil- ^on tor a speech and dramatic arts building. Most of the rest of the funds would be used ■ ur remodeling, additions attd planning.
