President Howard Hall clarified
this issue by stating that a number

Pete Rich was asked if the RA
position would affect the suite
leader's position. Although he
says he does not support the
switch to RAs, Rich did not believe
that it would effect suite leaders
because this system has worked
in some schools.
Vice-President Wendy Phillips
added to this by saying that
according to Dean Greer, RDs
had asked for some kind of
assistance. She said there is talk
of discontinuing RDs or having 2
or 3 dorms under one RD.
An RD/student present at the
forum countered this, "We did not
ask for RAs. Dean Greer told us
and that was that," they said.
On an entirely different topic not
presented by the speakers, Bently
Crabtree said that the Dean's
being informed by Scotland
County Memorial of those stu
dents who received treatment
was "none of her business."
Darin Lawrence supported that
statement, "That is a violation of
the Medical Privacy Act. Unless a
person is under 18, no one should
be contacted unless told to."
The rumors concerning Dean
Greer's involvement with Jim's
Drive-In were put to an end.
The official story was released to
Lisa Rich by Student Activities
Coordinator Glenn Harrison.
According to Harrison, Me Coll
officials called the Dean asking for
funds to help "clean-up" the
alcohol problem in their town.
Dean Greer told the officials that
she did not feel obliged to contrib
ute because establishments like
Jim's were contributing to the
alcohol problem on campus. The
person she talked to suggested
that she write a letter to the mayor
of Me Coll which she later did.
Students were urged by others in
the forum to still go to Jim's even if
"just for the food."
The "buddy system" was men
tioned as a means of helping solve
the security problem. The "buddy
system" is two suites, one male
and one female, paired off for
extra security. The Senate will be
posting specific guidelines and
details concerning this system this
A major complaint issued by
several students was the crowding
of the PE facilities by "townies."
Students said that since they pay
more money, they should have
People from the area pay for a
membership in the S.A.F.E. club
which allows them to use facilities
such as the weightroom, racquet-
ball courts and the bowling alleys.
"It all boils down to money," said
Louie Wemett of the PE Center.
Funds were needed to remodel
the facility, he said.
He also recognized the problem
of non-students and other un
authorized persons using the
Center. The doors can't be
chained for fire laws but students
were told that they have the right
to ask non-students for S.A.F.E.
Club identification cards. If the
person does not have a card, then
the student can ask them to leave
or get a PE worker to it for them.
Also the influx of non- students
has disturbed residents of High
land as these persons use the
doors to get to the gym.
Other topics discussed were the
14-meal a week plan, funding of
athletic scholarships, animal lab
conditions and the combination
locks in the women's residence
At the end of the foaim, one
student went as far as to ask if the
student body could bring Dean
Greer to court for supposed
violations of the student rights.

President Hall commented on
this statement,"Actually, the
Student Life Committee does not
have that authority over her (the
Dean). President Reuschling is
basically her tx)ss."
Hall also commented that
students wanting to take the Dean
to court was a "sad thing."
"It is unfortunate that students
are not for reconciliation, but
would rather take advantage of
things in the past," he said.
Hall noted that the students do
