Several of them wanted to know

Massey, said, “We hope to have an
even more democratic constitution
by the end of this year. We have
learned much from experience this
year in the organization of the SGA

will help us a great deal as we
correct our mistakes.”
The committee invites every stu
dent to discuss their ideas on the
Constitution with members of the
Committee. There will also be an
open discussion on Saturday, Feb.
24. The more progress in develop
ing the kind of Constitution the
students want that can be made
in the committee, the less unneces
