In the letter, Brady indicated that he is seriously considering to resign as vice-president. A formal announcement from Brady is expected in the next few days. That was the only statement coming out of the meeting concerning the announcement. Since the Tuesday election has passed, the SGA president has the power to appoint a vice-president. Details are only tentative at this time. More details will be offered in next week's issue of THE CAPITOLIST. Dini also announced that Provost Robert E. McDermott has concurred with the SGA and Faculty council resolutions calling for a suspension of classes on November 6 and 7. Individual faculty members have the option to voluntarily suspend dames to enable students to work in their home voting districts. "In support of the spirit the SGA and Faculty Council resolutions pertaining to student participation in the election, Provost Robert E. McDermott requests that faculty make allowance for class absences for that purpose without penalty. Students must make advance arrangements with their instructors for the fulfillment of class responsibilities.", Dr. Robert J. Brown, Associate Dean of Faculty reported." Acting under powers granted him by a resolution of the Senate, Dini made temporary ppointments of students to serve on Faculty Organization committees. Other appointtees and their committess include: Jack Coyle, Bookstore Activities; James B. Harris, Computer Facilities; Gene Bryan, Physical Plant; Donald Snyder, Academic Admissions Standards; Randall Blumline and Steve Hutter, Academic and Athletic Standards, Awards and Scholarships; Harold E. Brown, Community Contacts Robert Lipton and Steve Hutter, Library; Robert Bonaker and Marilyn Levin, Student Affairs. The SGA is preparing to publish a student leader directory. As the name implies, it will be a digested listing if those affiliated with the SGA as well as campus organizations. WHO'S WHO of AMERICAN COLLEGES and UNIVERSITIES singles out outstanding students who have displayed high academic October 19, 1972 achievement as well as participating in extra-curricular activities. WHO'S WHO allows individual colleges to establish their own criteria for selection but limits the number which can be selected. The SGA formed a committee composed •of Gene Bryan, Debra Young, Bonnie McSweeny and Harry Franzreb to begin work on the selection process and establishment of criteria. Faculty membership on the committee will be included. The Do-Nothing Club was designated as an organization by the Charter Review Committee, chaired by Judy LePere. Some 30 people are interested in becoming members. The club has a purpose of attempting to get those students, who literally do nothing, to become involved in activities as the club sees fit in the light of the present system. Club activities will be reportedly funded by its membership. Actually, the name of the organization is misleading. Other issues discussed included the Finance Committee which will come up with a budget for the married students apartments next week. A community to set up commencement programs has been established. A few senators reported that their constituents have had problems with the Finance Office in regards to the availability of check-cashing money and scholarship funds. The possibility of establishing a transportation service for disabled students was also discussed. Comments were made that some students were forced to walk to the Main Building from the dormitories because they could not find a ride. The Senate unanimously sponsored a motion urging the installation of pedestrian walkways between the dorms and the Main Building. The motion will be referred to the Task Force on Space and Facility Unitization. Din i mentioned that the academic calender submitted by the SGA to Provost McDermott has received high praise in many quarters. A final decision will be made in the next few weeks. ***** * * * * They Always Had Their Man (CPS) After several years of searching, Mexican police finally captured that nation's most wanted criminal, an outlaw credited with 20 murders.
