Stallings had announced in a letter to
the GPSF the composition of the
commission was "of utmost importance."
"I would like the GPSF to nominate
three graduate and professional students
who accurately reflect the composition of
the graduate and professional student

"It is unfortunately typical of the
attitudes and actions which have
precipitated the exodus of graduate and
professional students from Student
Government," said Baggett in attacking
the committee composition.
"I strongly suggest Stallings should
reconsider his proposal and amend it
appropriately," he added.
Stallings attributed this criticism to a

"When I ran for student body president
last spring. I pledged to make Student
Government more responsive to student
needs." Stallings said in a statement.
"In many areas. Student Government
has stood up for students since last
March," he said. "But Student
Government over the years has also failed
miserably in many areas.
"Student Government is going to be in
trouble if it doesn't bend. So many
people a,-e more concerned about the
organization than what it should do."
The commission will be composed ot
15 to 17 persons, according to Stallings.
"The important point is that my letter
to Walter was not the first time I had
talked to him about this." Stallings said.
"As far as the number of grads in relation
to the total number of students on the
commission, I fully expect to have a
representative number of grads in relation
to the percentage of grads on campus.
"There probably won't be 20 people
on the committee. A more likely number
would be 12 to 15 people. If it does
exceed 15, we would add grad students to
reflect their composition on this
campus," Stallings added.
"I asked for three nominations
because several graduate and professional
students had come to me in try capacity
as student body president and asked to
serve on the commission rather than go
through the GPSF."
At this point, Baggett believed the
issue had essentially been solved.
"How was I to know that other
graduate students had come to him
requesting a seat on the commission?"
"When Joe and I talked, he was very
vague about the whole thing." he said.
"When he put his proposal in writing I
made Firm objections, and evidently he
has now made firm changes. After hearing
his comments, Fm pleased he has
accepted my criticism and will change the
composition of the commission.
The GPSF President then went on to
question the effectiveness of graduate
students appointed by Stallings.
