Student Life Committee Needed
Long-range planning proposals, often the most progressive ideas for
campus change, rarely receive an audience larger than the faculty and
student committees who create them. Recognizing the potential of many
such proposals and the need to arouse profitable discussion concerning
them, we would like to endorse the proposal for a Student Life Com
mittee made by the Student Personal Services and Activities Committee.
College students from Berkeley to U.N.C.-CH are demanding a more
responsible part in non-academic decision making on the college campus.
This academic year has witnessed many frustrating delays in legislative
channels. Under the present system, all non-academic proposals must pass
the Faculty Committee on Student Government. The Student Personnel Ser
vices and Academic Committee, recognizing the need for more student
participation in non-academic legislation, have proposed a Student Life or
Student Affairs Committee to deal with changes in regulations. This com
mittee, unlike the Faculty Committee on Student Government, would be
composed of students, faculty, and administrative representatives.
This proposal should be implemented for several reasons: (1) It places
the students in a higher level of responsibility, (2) It simplifies decision
making channels, and (3) it provides a coordinating group for the MRA,
MCA, SAB, and the Student Government. This coordinating group would
be ideal for creating policies for the new college center in the future.

By DALE CUNNINGHAM
Red, white, and blue, the colors
of the season, are patrioticly de
claring spring and summer fashions
to be bolder and more imaginative
than ever before, and are dominant
in everything from three piece cos
tumes to finishing accessories.
The newest and sportiest intro
duction for the oncoming act on-
filled days is the safari suit. De
signed as a shirt, bolted and
pocketed, or as a longer jacket, with
or without sleeves and worn with
the ever-popular collared shirt, the
safari costume is completed by a
pleated or paneled skirt. In addi
tion to the vest-like effect of the
sleeveless safari jackets, long and
short weskets, adorned in bright
braid or rick-rack trimming, accent
dressy ruffled or tailored shirts and
dirndle or front paneled skirts.
The longer wrap-aroimd and
belted vests are a prominent look
in casual pants outfits, as well; the
pants bell-bottomed or elephant
legged, of course. Depending on the
occasion, everything from linen to
wild denim prints enliven casual
evening get-togethers or sunny
beach scenes. Bra dresses, in deli
cate piques and ribboned or in
bright splashy prints have been re
vived as well, to accompany the
warm and busy days ahead.
The biggest news for the coming
months are cheery and striking ac
cessories — long, bright scarves
are the big thing — worn at the
waist, looped through ringed belts
or merely sashed, around the neck
in hanging square knot or Windsor
fashion, and sportively in the hair,
the ends loosely hanging or tied
around the forehead.
Spectators have been imagi
natively revived in popularity; the
trend of white on black or blue ex
panded into combinations of many
arrays of bright colors.
Perhaps the most fun look as
sunny days approach are the
versatile “granny” sun glasses —
found in tinted lenses of many hues
to accent the most formal or sporty
of the summer costumes, and in
large round, hexagonal, or even
narrow rectangular shapes.
All of this season’s newest looks
seemed to be founded upon com
fort and activity, but imaginative
versatility is also a key-note in
planning any wardrobe. Spring and
summer mean color and activity—
but especially so in fashion.
Letter to
the Editor
Dear Editor,
Chicken Surprise, Sunshine salad,
Angel’s Breath, homemade bread,
cheese fondue, roast duckling, angel
food cake torte, fried Carolina
oysters, fantail shrimp, and good
old hamburgers. . . . Angus Bam
menu? No!! Meredith College din
ing hall, of course.
After three and a half years of
eating in the dining hall here and
comparing it to that of other schools,
we would like to express our thanks
to Mrs. Hollar and her staff for their
sensitive responsiveness to student
needs and desires. It is impossible
to please eight hundred people with
dissimilar tastes, but we feel that our
dining hall staff has certainly come
as close to it as possible.
It is the little things — Italian
dinner by candlelight, background
music by the Four Tops, sandwich
buffets, Friday night “pick-up” din
ners, special snacks during exams,
blue eggs for Phi Day, and star-
shaped cakes on Astro Day — that
make the Meredith dining hall a
special place.
Preparing food for eight hundred
people is time consuming, hard and
often thankless, but we feel that we
express the attitude of the whole
student body when we say Mere
dith food is great.
Sincerely,
Suzanne Ware and an
Anonymous Gourmet
