Senate Passes Policy
(Continued from page one)
would meet twice a year with the staff to "exchange views
and consider editorial and financial difficulties."
There was considerable debate over the bill calling for ad
mission of poor and minority youth, before the first and third
parts were passed.
The first part originally read: "Black youth, poor youth,
and any other group that the University Senate may consider
to be included in the general definition given earlier in this
report be included in entering classes in the Pennsylvania
State University at least to the extent that those groups are
represented in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania."
Several senators objected to the implied establishment of
quotas. Stanley Weintraub, professor of English. said, "We
can do our part without having restrictions attached."
Laurence Lattman, professor of geomorphology. objected
to the "any other group" clause, saying that the "University
Senate is taking to itself the ability and power to designate
certain groups as having representation in the student body."
Other members declared the specific identification of
"black youth" as unconstitutional.
The amended proposal which was adopted reads: "Stu
dents whose educational status, for reasons largely beyond
their control, denies them full opportunity for development in
the society. be included in entering classes in The Pen
nsylvania State University, the general goal being to more
nearly vepresent the e groups in proportion to their numbers
in the Commonwealth."
The second part called for the admission of these groups
"throughout the University system," rather than to any par
ticular campus. in "recognition that the presence of youth
from these groups serves as a valuable informal education in
background differences foiallstudents on the campuses."
This was sent hack to the Committee for revision, as
many members objected to the implied "Exhibit A" attitude
expressed tov.ards these students in the bill, on the basis that
it was "demeaning."
The third proposal. calling for the establishment of a cen
tral office "to coordinate the identification. recruitment, ad
mission. financial aid. acouistion of financial resources and
counseling," was accepted by the Senate.
In other Senate action. rule Z-13, which sets guidelines for
dermitory visitation by members of the opposite sex, was sub
mitted by the Committee on Undergraduate Student Affairs.
Latbnan, the committee's chairman, said the bill
designates only undergraduate students, so as to "bar high
school students and 'professionals'."
The proposal was adopted with the amendment that Com
monwealth Campuses may "adopt or modify Rule Z-13 in ac
cordance with local needs and conditions."
A motion to change the present term system to a modified
semester plan was tabled. and will be presented as the first
order of business at the July meeting.
The Committee on Resident Instruction recommended
that "the Senate approves the adoption of the two-semester
that the Senate approve the adoption of the two-semester
The new calendar would provide for 15 week fall and
spring semesters, with a ten week summer term..
The Senate also accepted an extensive report of the ad hoc
Committee on the Modern Land-Grant University.
