Action On Red Hot Redistrict Plan Wrangle
Due In Student Legislature Meeting Tonight
By Siuart Jones
One of the "hottest" sessions in
history of the Student Legislature
may take place tonight' with final
action due on the long controver
sial , redistricting plan.
The pending bill, introduced by
David Kerley at the Legislature's
last meeting, would amend the
general elections law to provide
for two men's town districts, the
first embracing all fraternity res
idents, and the second including
all other off -campus residents.
The question of redistricting,
which is just coming to a boil,
has seen little action up till now
due to the lack of strength of its
supporters in the Legislature. The
two campus parties have lined
up generally with the Student
Party favoring passage and the
University Party opposing it. ,

"A very great evil exists in al

Kerley. "The present election

Opposition, which is spearhead
ed by Ed Gross, floor leader of
the UP, stated that though an evil
does exist in the election laws,
the present bill is not the solution
to the problem. Gross . agrees,
that "there is injustice in the
