"That Was The Year That Was" is the winning theme for next fall's homecoming activities.

The play will also be presented tomorrow night.

Robert Gaunt, Washington Court, objected during the meeting to the use of student government funds to pay for the advertisement of the constitutional referendum in last Friday's Life: Gaunt claimed the advert tisement looked more like an endorsement than a political announcement. He said it was questionable to use student government funds to promote the constitution since it had not been endorsed yet by the student body who may not support it. Joe Sweeney, student body president, explained that "It is the duty of this body to run a political announcement on the referendum to make sure it is properly communicated since we petitioned to place the constitution on the ballot," "Essentially what the advertisement said," Sweeney stated, "is that there was going to be a constitutional referendum placed on the ballot by Student Senate and that it was endorsed by those who signed." Bob Burkett, Preston Court, said he believed it should be the responsibility of the persons who signed the endorsement to pay for the ad. Tom Tope, Ronan, stated that since Senate passed the constitution they should be willing to back up the executive board's endorsement and pay the bill. Sid Smith, IFC, said, "Without this type of advertising er promotion, we may run into three or four ballots which will run into a lot of money. As far as I am concerned, the student body should spend to the ultimate in supporting this." Jim Maybaugh, Men's Union, moved that Senate approve the allotment to cover the ad in" Life. The motion carried. Sweeney announced that Dorothy Weaver, Grandville sophomore, is the executive board's choice to represent Central for the IIAC Queen Contest at Eastern Illinois. The expense will be paid by Information Services and the Physical Education department. Sweeney also announced that The Hunsmen, a Central folk-singing group, won first place in a folk-singing festival at Olivet College. The Hunsmen received S100, a trophy and have been booked at several nightclubs in western Michigan. Twelve • Michigan schools entered the competition. James Bedore, Unionvilie junior, will be the chairman -^f a newly formed committee to arrange speaking engagements (Continued on Page 3)., / i%<5> i„.
