of study.

Max Brady to
Resign as SGA VP
SGA President Mike Dini read
a written announcement from
Vice President Max Brady at
Monday's Senate meeting. 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
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,

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.
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.

promoted to sergeant when he
was arrested.
