sembly in many years. The meeting has been planned to enable mem
bers of council to have a closer contact with their constituents.
ALL CLUBS MUST
BY MONDAY NIGHT
At a meeting of the student coun
cil Monday, November 18th, adoption
of the present budget plan was de
ferred until all clubs submitted their
individual budgets to the council
committee. This must be done by
Monday, November 25th, when the
council will hold their next session.
It is extremely important that all
existing clubs comply with this re
quest. If clubs, that are organized
at present, do not submit their budg
et plans to the council, the money
that is allocated to them will be chan
neled to other activities. Clubs that
arc not as yet organized, but are in
the embryo stage, must be complete
ly organized by February 1, 1947,
and their budgets submitted at tint
time, or their funds will also be chan
neled to other activities.
The council requested that all
clubs send representatives to this
meeting, and that they have their,
budgets made out in clear, precise
manner. Too much cannot be said
about the importance of complying
with the council’s wishes. The budget
,s made to the best advantage of all
concerned, and cooperation is needed

Students taking the course .would
receive two credits. There would be
one hour of recitation, and five hours
of practicum (practice) per week.
For practice sessions it was stated
that arrangements may be made with
the YWCA and YMCA to secure the
use of their pianos during' certain
hours. An additional fee of $21.5C

Cleanup Campaign To Begin
A game room committe in charge
of Francis Fatsie, council vice-presi
dent, was selected at the last meeting
of the student council. The other
members of the committee are: Tom
Caccese, Ted Broski, Frank Lucia,
Dave Keller, and Dick Barager.
This committee will be solely re
sponsible for the game room, and
they voiced then' intention of start
ing a clean-up program immediately.
They agreed that this action was
necessary, and intend to enforce any
directives they may install. Their
first action is to get sufficient ash
trays, and trash receptacles. How
ever, full student co-operation is
needed. It has: been noted that some
students eat their lunch in the room
and arc extremely careless as to dis
posing of their waste, also, many
pieces of scratch paper usually find
their way to the floor' instead of the
waste basket. As a result of this

cess, and it is felt that it would he a
much desired course here at HUC.
Many students have long wished to
study some instrument but had been
unable to do so before; this would be
a wonderful opportunity.
It has come to the attention of Mr.
Krecker that most students seem to
walk on the wrong side of the halls
during the change in classes. This
causes confusion and often results in
many accidents of books being scat
tered over the iloor, etc.
It is hoped that in the future, stu
dents will walk on their own right at
all times when going to and from
classes.. A change of this sort will
result in a more orderly method of

been seen in one of the baskets, and

of carelessness. So be careful v here
