THE “DOG-MAN” COMETH Auiendinents To Constitution And By-Laws Proposed By Senate At the May 3, 1965, Senate meeting, a group of proposed amendments to the Constitution and By-Laws were proposed. According to Guy Turner, current V. President and next years President of the SGA„ a constitution provides a frame work with which to work. Any constitution will require adjust ments as new situations arise. The Constitution and By-laws drawn up last year were com pletely different from any pre viously established rules. The writers of the constitution couldn’t forsee specific problems in the Constitution and By-laws, but, realizing there would be pro blems, provided a clause in the Constitution which made it pos sible to change it. By using this clause these admendments may be incorporated into the govern ment. The Senate ask that you read these amendments which are vital to you, the student. They will in effect shape your life at Wes leyan. Discuss them with other students and voice your com plaints or approval to your Senate representative.

The first performance took place on November 27,1743, during the Thanksgiving service in St. Paul’s and was a great sutcess for the composer. Its — success was not surprising , for seldom has a 'composer suc ceeded in achieving such an im pressive synthesis portraying the emotions of a whole people, from festive jubilation to devout gra- titutde.
