Personal freedom is important but
"many times collective action is a
prerequisite to insuring individual
freedom," Student Body President Joe
Stallings told the Freshman Council
Calling the more than 60 members of
the council to action at their first
meeting, Stallings said, "The Freshman
Council was formed to explain the
opportunities available at the University
so that if you want to get involved, we
can show you how."
The Freshman Council will operate for
six weeks as a group, hearing speakers and
receiving information on the Student
Union, academics and Student
The members will decide at the end of
the six weeks whether the council will
continue in the same format, tackle one
problem as a group or branch off into
individual work on particular interests.
"This is not a structured group at all,"
said Stephanie Bolick, member of the
Sophomore Council. "It's up to them to
make it what they want it to be."
Stallings explained the power structure
of the University with a diagram of the
flow of power, showing the freshmen
"where we fit in as students."

"Many of our faculty members have
expressed concern about the events that
led to Arnold's death," Okun said.

committee," he added.
Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson issued a
statement outlining the University's
position following the announcement of
the investigation. He said the University
would have a further statement to make
about Arnold's death.
Sitterson also said he had met with

James A. Taylor, Student Health Service
Director; and the team physician
following Arnold's collapse on the

all possible steps be taken to minimize
possible reoccurrence of such illness," the
chancellor's statement said. "Secondly, I

"You can see from this diagram that
not a whole lot goes upward," he said,
"After seeing the bureaucracy involved
in the University's power structure, you
might ask, 'What can we as students do?'
The trend is toward more
decision-making on the part of students,"
"It's your decision whether or not to
become involved," Stallings said. "At the
end of the six weeks, you may decide not
to become involved. That decision will be
"The important point is that you will
have the proper informational base to
make the right decision for you."
The Sophomore Council, a group
composed of last year's Freshman
Council members, will serve as "resource
leaders" to the new group.
Last year's council, the first of its
kind, was created by former student body
president Tom Bello. Of its 23 members,

The committee met Wednesday night
to discuss a petition which it will

The petition, calling for the repeal of

states the "sudden increase is unfair" and
"will place unnecessary financial burdens
on numerous out-ot-state students."
