ceremonies. Senator Cathy
Brewington (Jr., at-large) was
placed on probation for this
term because her grade average
fell below the Senate required
2.33. She must raise her average
to that level by the spring term
or race removal from office.
Senator Elyse Paul (Sr.,
at-large), Chairman of the
Campus/Community Service
Committee reported U.S.
Senator Richard Schweiker has
declined an invitation to be the
featured speaker at
Commencement, due to a prior
engagement. The senior senators
then selected Texas legislator
Cissy Farenthold to be next
invited. Dini and Sen. Paul were
to meet with Provost
McDermott on Tuesday to
establish a budget for graduation
The Chairman of the ad-hoc
Committee on Student/Campus
Academic Concerns, Bill
Mathews (Jr., at-large) reported
on a recent conference he held
with Provost McDermott.
According to Mathews,
McDermott stated the campus
name change will "be effected in
the near future." As for changes
in degree nomenclature,
"Provost McDermott seems to
think we would be wasting our
time because there is no
substantial proof that the
present degree hinders graduates
in obtaining a job. The subject
has been rehashed and fought
over repeatedly with no further
settlement in sight. He thought
it might be advisable to redirect
our efforts," Mathews said.
Bernie Boyle mentioned that
the campus Leadership
Directory has been distributed,
but errors or oversights
occurred. An addendum is being
prepared for publication.
Senator Michael Leasher (Jr.,
Social Science) reported he had
talked to Mr. Dressler about
keeping campus offices open to
students by staggering the lunch
hours. According to Leasher,
Dressler pointed out it is not just
a matter of keeping offices open
during the noon hour but also
during the evenings. Apparently,
arrangements have been made
for the Finance office to be
open during lunch on Mondays
and on Fridays for payroll
checks. Leasher also reported
the administration has planned
to place tables in the lavatories
on which to place schoolbooks.
Leasher had originally pushed
for the installation of permanent
shelving, but the authorities
rejected it because of the cost
factor involved. A Senate
motion to establish a coat-rack
area in Vendorville passed by
Dini then turned to an issue
he called "a major priority," the
publication of a general student
directory. He noted that the

Office of Student Affairs had
supplied the information to the
Academic Services Office in the
expectation that office would
print it. Academic Services did
publish a 123 page directory,
but Dini expressed the size and
cost of printing nearly one
thousand of them was to
cumbersome. He expressed a
desire for Student Affairs to
publish a handy directory, like
last year's of approximately
eight pages. Dini thought
Student Affairs had "passed the
buck" when it turned the matter
over to Academic Services. He
believes the publication of the
directory to be the duty of the
Student Affairs Office in the

"Is Student Affairs really
performing its mission?" when it
failed to print a directory. The
Senate passed a motion, by 19-1,
requesting the Student Affairs
Office to publish a student
