Extend Petitions
For Councilmen
As a result of the meeting held last
Monday evening when there was an
appeal from members of the sophol
more class, the Student Council de
cided to extend the deadline for peti
tions for the president of the sopho
more class who acts in the capacity
of president of Council, and for the
two sophomore council members.
When this paper went to press there
had been no definite time set for the
Two of the positions, previously
held by ex-president Bo•b Rinkus and
ex-councilman Michael Zabitckuck,
were vacated when the two officers
resigned February 14. The action
was the result of an extended invita
tion from newly-appointed faculty
adviser Syd Rudman to those who
felt overburdened by responsibility
and obligation of a councilman to
tender their resignation. The third
position became vacant when John
Parvensky submitted his resignation
following his announcement that he
was transferring to Rider College.
On March 1 at a special financial
meeting Paul Pucillo, a sophomore
member of the student body, urged
'the council to authorize a special
election to fill the three, vacancies.
Upon proper consideration of his
recommendation, Council passed a
resolution authorizing such an elec
tion. Paul's appearance at the meet
ing was one of the few isolated
examples of a student properly ap
pearing before council and expressing
his views.
Syd Rudman expressed the view
that the policy of the Council has
been and shall be that all members
of the Council must be productive
and functional, and not merely titular
figures. He also urges all students,
who have grievances or suggestions
to appear at the regular Council
meeting held every Monday evening
at five p.m. in the Walnut Street
