Senate Notes
By Holly Beatty
At the Senate meeting on
October 20, the first order of
business was a concern ex
pressed about the amount of
absences each Senator is
allowed. Due to the fact that
Craig Breyon, president of
the Senate is required to at
tend basketball practices he
may be missing numerous
Senate meetings. Brook
Gustafson questioned as to
whether or not Craig could
“work overtime to make up
for missed practice.” Craig
replied that he would look in
to this proposal. The final
“decision” was to allow the
campus students to see an at
tendance sheet for each
meeting. After three unex
cused absences a person will
be discussed as to impeach
ment or resignation. Bill
Faulkner volunteered to
write the statement and
report by next meeting.
A bill was approved
allocating student associa
tion funds to clubs and
organizations. The bill reads
as follows: “...the Budget
committee in cooperation
with the SGA designed a
60%-40% allocation. With
each club receiving 60% for
the fall/winter, and 40"7o in
the spring.”
Dr. Norman Boggs was
elected as the student faculty
advisor. Also, a new position
was opened to a member of
the Senate which will “take
some pressures off of the
Secretary to the Senate.”
Kelvin Wright was elceted as
the new Assistant Secretary
to the Senate.
A discussion as to whether
or not an ROTC Program
would be welcomed at St.
Andrew’s caused a question
as to whether the Senators
are actually representatives
of the students. Many
members ridiculed the idea
but were reminded by Jean
Martin that the Senators are
“representatives of others”.
The discussion was postpon
ed until later date.
The Hagan Choral Room was recently dedicated in Vardell Hall. The renovated
auditorium is named in memory of Virginia Blair Carter Hagan. Here President Perskin-
son presents a replica of the dedication plaque to Mrs. Hagan's family members

Constitution
Examined
The Student-Faculty Ap
pellate Court has made the
following interpretations of
the Student Association Con
stitution;
1) In Article V, Section 3,
paragraph c, the word
“counsel” has been inter
preted to include only
members of the Saint An
drews community, e.g.
teachers, students, and ad
ministrators.
2) In Article V, Section 9,
paragraph a, the sentence
“The Honor Court is a
student-facutly judicial body
of the Student Association
which shall hear cases involv
ing acedemic and social
violations of the Honor
Code,” has been interpreted
to mean: “The Honor Court
is a student-faculty judicial
body of the Student Associa
tion which shall hear all cases
involving acedemic and
social violations of the
Honor Code. The net effect
of this change is that the
Dean of Students will not
hear any cases involving
Honor Code violations. All
Honor Code violations will
be heard by the Honor
Court.
