may do so.

In its report, the committee,
composed largely of medical students,
proposes the establishment of a
student-faculty committee to study the
problems of student health care on the
ITSC campus. This committee would have
access to all resources and funds,
necessary for the study.
According to the report, a review of
the present operations of the Infirmary
should be included in the study. The
Infirmary has a general three-point policy
of education, preventive medicine and
patient care. However, within three

which would remove the student
fee subsidy of the yearbook.
The plan, which would have to
win the approval of the Student
Legislature during budget sessions
this spring, will have no effect on
the Yack being prepared for this
year by editor Joe Mitchner.
Student fees, in the form of an
appropriation from Legislature,
currently provide $52,540 of the
Yack's total budget of $83,440.
WaddelTs proposal would call
for students to subscribe to the
Yack when they register for fall
semester. Those students who
wanted a Yack, Waddell said, would
be billed for it individually rather
than have the cost of the yearbook
paid by their student fees.
Students who decided at a later
date they wanted a Yack could
