Lamp and
Shield may-
still be on time
“There is a very good
though not guaranteed
possibility that this year’s
Lamp and Shield will be
delivered by May 22,” editor
Judi Plyler told THE LANCE
this week. After meeting with
the representative from
Hunter Publishing early in the
week, Plyler released the
conditions under which
Hunter has agreed to publish
the Lamp and Shield as soon
as possible.
The size of the book has been
reduced to 96 pages from 112.
Final deadlines have been set
for the last week in March.
These are absolute deadlines,
the Hunter representative told
the yearbook staff, which if
not met, will immediately
preclude the publication of the
yearbook on time.

Plyler emphasized to -THE
LANCE, however that, though
smaller, this year’s Lamp and
Shield will not be “another
picture book. We’re aiming for
some high qualify textural
content,” she said.
The Other half of that
Student Life meeting
Due to the furor incumbent
with the two major issues
raised in last week’s Student
Life Committee meetings,
the attendant editorial cuts
require to fit in the Governors
School story at the last
moment, several things which
got done at the meeting got
squeezed out of last weeks
issue of THE LANCE.
The committee voted, at the
suggestion of Asst. Dean for
Residential Life Ron Diment
to institute a “Hall Fee” of $10
next year. This fee would be
payable at the beginning of
year by each student. Five
dollars of the fee will be cn-
sWered a key deposit, while
me other $5 would be put in the
dorm account. This money
would be available for dorm
but would also be liable for
in the case of damages
which could not be attributed
K) any particular party. “I
think this will give the
residence halls both some
added financial flexibility and
more of a sense of respon
sibility for the maintenance of
their halls,” said Diment. The
measure was passed
The committee also
prepared to have its Student
Living Sub-committee look at
a proposal from Diment for
changing the present
Residence Director system.
While the proposed changes
were not spelled out in detail,
Diment did note that the
proposal included a new
position entitled Resident
In other matters, the
committee discussed an in
vestigation into the reasons
for an apparent repossession
by the manufacturer of the
base station radio used by
Campus Security.

In one of the most eventful
meetings of the year, the
Student Association Senate
convened yesterday in
Albemarle Dorm to deal with
both the Senate by-laws and
the Granville-Wilmington
Extravagaza request for $500.
Both had been wanting
resolution for the past several
meetings, having been in the
Revision and Budget com
The first order of business
was the report of Mecklenburg
Senator Mark Six, Chairman
of the Revision conunittee.
The committee reported out a
new set of by-laws for the
Senate to operate by (See the
accompanying article in this
issue of THE LANCE.) These
bylaws emphasize
establishing a functioning
committee system, a working
Senate secretarist, a calen
dar, and more clearly defining
the reasons for which a
senator may be removed from
the senate and the procedures
for doing so.
Six noted that the com
mittee had “put in a lot of
study and work” on the
proposal. After a short
discussion of several apparent
ambiguities, the senate voted
unanimously upon off-campus
Senator Lee Earnhardt’s
motion to accept the new by
laws. Mecklenburg Senator
Lin Thompson pointed out to
several Senators who had
raised specific questions,
among them Granville
Senator John Green and
Highland Senator Jim
Fawbush, that “if we find
something we can’t live with,
or something that looks good
on paper, we haven’t forfeited
the right to amend the thing..
That’s why I’ve suggested that
the Revision Committee
become the Operations
Committee. The people who
came up with this should have
to make it work.”
The Senate then proceeded
to put its new by-laws to the
test in a spirited debate over
the Extravaganza request.
The procedure began with the
report by the Budget Com
mittee Chairman Steve
Kunkle, Senator from
