Student government leaders are urging all students interested in student, rights to meet with them Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the UC Maroon. Room. At that time an executive committee made up of the interested students will make further plans for a seven-point Responsible Militancy program to get the attention of state legislators, parents and alumni. Support Asked "We really need the help of all the students in this campaign and at the meeting," Steve Rison, student body president, said. "Everyone that helps will be doing a service to students sail over the country by fighting for rights." Student Senate debated issues concerning the campaign at their meeting Monday night. They drew up a seven-point action plan to get more support for the Student Bill of Rights to be presented before the Board of Trustees at the Jan. 17 meeting. Attend Trustees Meeting The Board will have an open meeting at 2 p.m. the same day and student government leaders are asking that students also go to that meeting to give their vocal support to the Bill of Rights. Student senators expressed a concensus of opinion that unless they get full support and enthusiasm for the Bill of Rights from the student body that their campaign will "probably not have any effect on the Board of "Trustees. In proposing the Responsible Militancy campaign Rison pointed out that the regulating actions and demonstrations were not to be equated with irresponsibility. "Organization will be the key word in our campaign," Rison said. 1,071 To Graduate in January Approximately r,071 candidates will receive degrees at the commencement exercises in Finch Fieldhouse Jan. 27 at 10:30 a.m. The actual number of candidates may change before graduation pending completion of graduation requirements by January graduates and approval of the candidates by the Board of Trustees and the University Senate.
