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.

Arthur McDonald, director of this Highland Players pro duction, announced the cast last week.

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 effective. 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. Self-nominations for student government positions, March 8-12.
