Senate OK's Proposed Amendments;
Board Changes Election Schedule
Dorm Presidents and Vice-
Presidents passed several pro
posed constitutional amend
ments at Its meeting Monday
amidst hot and heavy discus
sion and the threat of a walk
out by one member which would
have destroyed the quorum
necessary for voting.
The Senate, by acting on a-
mendments proposed by Wil
burn Hayden President of the
Student Association, opened the
way for several sweeping
changes in the Constitution, in
cluding particularly the com
position of the College Union
Board, selection of students
on faculty committees, prov
isions for summer courts and
summer coordinators. These
proposed amendments were
posted on Tuesday and must be
posted for at least two weeks
before they can be voted on.
The controversy arose when
— after several members had
left the meeting — there was
a one person majority making
a quorum. Hosea Jones, Presl-

Neil Simon’s blockbuster
‘‘Barefoot in the Park” will be
presented here March 11-14
In the Liberal Arts Auditorium.

duction, announced the cast

dent of Winston-Salem, noting
that the constitutional changes
would hold up the elections
schedule already set up by the
Elections Board, made several
attempts to have consideration
of the amendments postponed
to avoid conflict with or postpo
nement of elections. At one point
he threatened to leave the meet
ing, which would have destroy
ed the quorum and ended the
possibility of passing the a-
mendments until the next Se
nate meeting.
However, a compromise mo
tion was finally agreed upon:
The Senate determined to write
the Elections Board “begging”
them to cut two days off the
elections schedule and thus al
low both student voting on the
proposed constitutional amend
ments and the completion of all
elections before spring break.
However, approval of the a-
mendments must lie gained from
Che faculty and President Hart
before the amendments become
The Elections Board, meet
ing last night, decided to change
its calendar to accommodate the
student referendum on the pro-
posed constitutional amend
ments. Since the proposed a-
mendments affect both student
government and dorm elections
they must be approved before
elections can take place. The
student referendum will take
place on March 3. The election
dates were moved back to ac
commodate the two week post
ing period. Elections will be
over before spring break.
