Mr. Cansfield will introduce the afternoon speakers: Students to Vote On Revisions Tues. Proposed changes of Central's student government constitution were approved by the Student Senate Monday night. The revisions will come before the student body for ratification Tuesday at the polls. Because ihe rules in ihe present Student Manual do not meet the needs of increased enrollment, and in many instances contain ambiguous and contradictory statements, the Student Senate and Student Court are making plans to publish a new manual. Members of the student body will have the opportunity to examine all changes (which will be underlined on the copy) when they vote. Major revisions are a reorganization of Student Court duties and a new system of ratifying constitutional amendments and revisions. The Student Court, according to ihe proposal, will lake over election and constitution and ordinance procedures. Presently, these duties are ihe responsibility of ihe Student Senate. This change will allow ihe Student Senate more lime io carry out legislative actions and will provide the Court with definite responsibilities. In order to keep the constitution accurate and up to date it is necessary to make provisions for Senatorial ratification of revisions and amendments. It is now necessary to stage a special election for this purpose. Other changes consist of simplifying wording and clarifying terms. C. L. Taylor ,state superintendent of public instruction who will speak on "Education in 1970"; and Steve Nisbet, vice president of public relations, Gerber Baby Foods. Conference closes at 3:15 p.m. Secondary education symposiums will be held in the morning from 10 to 11:15 a.m. and elementary education symposiums will be held in the afternoon' from 2 to 3:15 p.m. Seniors in the teacher education program are encouraged to attend this conference.
