Student Legislature (SL) will meet
tonight to consider the possible
nomination of David Wynne for Student
Supreme Court Justice.
The $25,000 budget reallocation
proposal submitted last week by Student
Body President Tom Bello has not yet
reached Finance Committee and probably
will not be acted on until sometime next
Wynne is the first of three student
Supreme Court justice appointments by
Bello to be sent to legislature for
ratification. Currently only two of five
justice seats are filled.
Student Body Vice President Bill Blue
said Wynne's nomination was scheduled

In addition to issues such as visitation,
self-determination should be extended,

academic institution," he continued.
"Many members of the Board of

be broken, saying, if we give this over to

policy passed last year by student

on a technicality.
"We're trying to establish a tradition,"
Lamson said, "among student leaders at
least on our campus that they represent
student interests...and forcefully but
non-violently make sure the
administrations, local and consolidated,

Lamson believes that student

example" of that change.

The Student Government budget cuts
which were made during the summer by
Student Legislature will not be necessary,
according to Student Body Treasurer Guil
"During the summer, no one
anticipated as many people coming here
this fall as they did," Waddell said. 'The
larger-than-estimated number of students
enrolling at the University made the
budget cuts unnecessary.
"We based our initial budget figures on
the . amount of money Student
Government received last year," he said.
"If we had received the same amount of
money as last year, this year's budget
would have been $11,000 to $15,000
short without the cuts."
Waddell has called a meeting of the
treasurers of all organizations falling
under the jurisdiction of the Student
Government budget for Friday afternoon
in room 202 of the Carolina Union.
The meeting is required by Student
Government regulations to explain
procedures of the treasurer's office and
the requisition system, and to hand out
copies of the budget. Any organization
which does not have a representative
the main purpose of the student
government was social and to serve as a
token representative to formal functions
of the University.
"Now student government is more of a
real government. It represents what the
students want and is no longer afraid to
step on a few toes and speak frankly,"
The problem, said Lamson, is that
"the average administration in its
relations with students and students
leaders bases its relations on the idea that
students will be graduated in a year or so.
So they stall.
"One real fault of student leaders in
general is that they are so busy trying to
get things done they don't h3ve time to
help iri-coming leaders with background
information. Consequently, they have to
go over the same territory, same
discussions, same meetings year after
year," Lamson related.
Nineteen persons have been arrested
thus far of the 25 indicted by the grand
jury. Among them is the student body
president at Kent State. The grand jury
indicted no National Guardsmen, saying
the shooting which caused the four
deaths resulted from the "threat of life"
to the guardsmen.

"The reason we asked for a budget cut
was because the Student Government
treasury has come up short of funds for
the last two years," he said. "We weren't
too alarmed when the shortage was
$5,000 two years ago, but when we came
up with $12,000 less than we anticipated
last year, we felt like our future budget
should be based on the amount of money
we received in the past, rather than the
enrollment estimates obtained from
Waddell said that the estimate of funds
Student Government will receive this year
will leave a surplus of about $3,000.
'This extra money can be used in case
something comes up which the student
body would like to have, or for special
nrojects," he said.
There was a dispute at the beginning
of this school year over the budget cuts,
made during a special summer session of
SL. Conservative members of legislature
charged Student Government and SL
with conducting an illegal meeting to
make the cuts.
However, SL approved all of the
budget cuts in its first regular fall
