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.

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.

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
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.

Students Affected By Financial Aid Cut
The National Direct Student
Loan Fund has been cut and has
affected 233 Gardner-Webb stu
dents. 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.
