SGA News Legislation was introduced to the senate on Dec. 4 requesting that a document be prepared which would contain a written explanation of student rights and responsibilities; Chief Justice Milce Stewart will be chairperson of the committee to prepare this doc ument. It is hoped that rules and regulations and policies which di rectly affect students will receive major emphasis in this document, as there has been problems in the past with infractions of rules with which students were not aware. Officers .of AWS and MAC and justices will sfrve on the commit tee which will cohduct an in depth study of judicial practices and procedures. The Student Union Board Com mittee reported that it had begun It rough draft on the constitution and by-laws for a Stulent Union Board. In cooperation with the Constitutional Review Committee, the SUB would unite the activi ties of the campus. Realizing that Spring Jubilee is an intergral part of campus ac tivities, a motion was carried to have a committee organize this activity. Guidelines for the coffee^ house were presented and ap proved and the food commttee was approved to be a standing committee. This legislation should provide the food committee with more strength anl if valid com plaints are not acted upon by cafeteria management, an appeal may be presented to the Student Life Committee. Impeachment proceeding were begun by the senate on Walter Biggs and Gerry Valencourt for failure to fulfill the responsibili- 1 ties of senator. Both students had continued to fail to attend senate meetings. The impeachment will be carried to the judicial board for further action.

Deb- Christmas Drive The Gardner-Webb SGA in co operation with the Cleveland County Community Action has started a drive to help under privileged families throughout the Boiling Springs and Shelby areas. SGA president Steve Riddle and J. C. Cole initiated the project after a Sociology class under Mr. Lansford Jolley toured the poverty- stricken areas in Boiling Springs and Shelby. Students are asked to contribute can goods, clothing or toys, and these articles will be collected in a designated area in the cafeteria under the Christmas tree. These items are being picked up by the Cleveland County Community Ac tion and distributed to needy fam ilies. If there is a surplus of items and all the physical needs of fam ilies in this area are met, the re maining goods will be taken to the Salvation Army for distribu tion in other areas. Ths is the first year the SGA has attempted such a project. The fullest cooperation of the student body is required and if the re sponse is successful, the SGA plans to make it a year round project. "It seems hypocritical to me that people only care around Christmas time. Remember these underprivileged families must eat year round,” commented Sieve Riddle. Althouph a similar project has been initiated by women’s resi dent halls in past years, this is the first time the SGA has at tempted to underscope this type of campus project. bie is captain of the cheerleading squad and a member of the college chorus and gymnastic team.

This is a federal loan fund which became effective July 1, 1972 replacing the old National Defense Loan. Gardner-Webb had received ini tial approval that they would be granted the federal loan funds and on this basis the loans were grant ed. In mid-October Mr. Bill Briggs, Director of Student Personnel Ser vices, received information that final approval of the funds had been lenied and that Gardner- Webb had lost 539,500. This federal cut-back affected 233 students that were on the program and while 177 students lost partial funds, 26 students lost all funds. The average cut-back was $300 per student. Mr. Briggs stated that the c back was not an arbitrary denial of funds by the college but the cut-back had come from the fed eral government. He also statel that college regulations provided that students were responsible for all payments before pre-register ing, but due to the situation ar rangements could be made through the Financial Aid Deparunent.
