The float was being constructed in a metal barn two miles off Mission toward Midland.

"Do siudenis have a right as American citizens io print iheir views?" asked Sandrock, "I request clarification on whether I can print a newsletter or if a censor will •be standing over me." Bedore said that the publications board has never taken a position on Senate publications, and that he did not be- Jieve senators could be prevented from printing newsletters. Dean Pike explained that, as he SaW it, a senator could publish a weekly newsletter without It being considered <a publication. "A right exists for an organization to print for the consumption of its members since they are not printing for the whole campus," he said. After further discussion ihe motion was carried, and Senate will advise the publications board to enact a definite policy on Senate newsletters. The board decided Wednesday that it has no jurisdiction oyer individual student publications.) Glenn Bills, Thorpe, gave the report of Senate's special committee considering t h e hitching posts.

Recent Survey Shows Parking Inadequate For Commuters 's managing Editor's note: This is the second in a series of articles dealing with the parking situation. By Maxine Swift . Life Special Writer Because of confusion, complaints and unhappiness over the parking situation here, a survey has been made of allotment, use and policing of parking areas. This survey was taken over a three-week period during regular campus school hours. Each lot was checked nine times for spaces filled and violations. Campus parking meters were observed the ; same number of times. This survey revealed the following facts about the parking situation: ^ Commuter students are re- ' stricted, according to -the parking''map, to two lots, one between Mission Street and Preston Court and one near Rowe Hall. These lots total about 360 parking spaces, although campus security Headquarters reports that 735 decals have , been issued to commuter stu-- dents. Commuter lots are most distant from the cenier of campus. The one by Rowe Hall is constantly filled. The Mission Street lot is even farther away. Spaces at its farthermost point usually stands empty. This ds fortunate because the ROTC drills here every Friday* at which time it is impossible to park- in at all. It should be made clear that these two lots are not reserved for commuter alone, (with time out for drill) but faculty, staff and visitors are privileged to park there also. A strip of street near the -fieldhouse is marked for commuters on the map, but has been curbed and posted with "no parking" signs. On-campus students who drive cars number 685, according to ampus Security. They park in seven areas placed near their housing, no];, open to visitors, and larger in total space than commuter ^parking area. Neither on- nor off-campus students are allowed to park in lots near Finch, Warriner, Rowe, Wightman, Grawn and Central Halls, University Press, Field Services Building or University Center, as these lots are for faculty, staff and visitors. These lots averaged at least 120 empty parking spaces at each check. The lot beside the Finch Building has about 100 spaces, and as many as 79 empty spaces were counted between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The least number of available parking spaces ever counted there was 65. Fewest parking spaces available by Grawn Hall was 16 and the average was about" 25. A lot reserved for visitors by the University Center averaged 45 empty spaces out of a total of 59. No more than 75 visitor cars (without decals) were counted in all lots combined on campus at any one time. When asked why commuter students must park in the most distant lots when space is available closer in, Henry Mitchell, who serves on the subcommittee to • administer parking, for the Health" and Safety .Committee, replied that "the faculty objected last year to commuter students parking on central lots." He also said walking time from the commuter lots was no more, than five to 10 minutes. Where do commuters who do not have iime io park in these lots go?" An average of 25-35 commuter cars are parked on campus-owned meters during, the school day. Lots by Calkins Hall and Tate Food Commons are, designated on the map for resident siudenis, but many commuter cars are parked in these areas. Violator vehicles were found everyplace. One or two faculty cars usually are parked in the ^visitor lot by the University. Center. Mitchell says this is the only lot closed to faculty, and staff. Mitchell declared that lots, are checked at least once daily for violations. He said that" during the last fiscal year 2,476 tickets were issued, with 727 for wrong parking, 623 for overparking and 289 for failure to register vehicles. He was unable to account for 837 tickets and could not tell how many fines had been paid and how many dismissed. When asked how he could be sure the lot boundaries are working out satisfactorily he said the subcommittee members check them "physically." He said he did not know who the other committee members for the current year are because "the v committee hasn't met yet." ' ; It was noted in the survey that some lots are marked storage, and that the lot by Tate Food Commons bears several signs which are not •relevant to information on the parking map.. Mitchell explained this by saying that the map is accurate and that some signs are wrong or confusing but that "nobody has had time to take them down yet."
