The Carolina Symposium, under the direction of Chairman Sonn3
Hallford, met yesterday afternoon to hear reports from committees,
appoint a new vice-chairman, Jerry Oppenhcimer, and to announce
chairmen for standing committees.
A report was heard from Al Goldsmith, chairman of the finance
committee, who stated: "We have raised close to S2.500 at this point.
I would like to thank the Interfraternity Council for a grant of $25
and the University Party for a donation of $50. Our anticipated budget
is about $6,000."
