Grown For Research
Glen Drohman, the greea

plants are grown which cor
respond with the ones studied
in the botany classes. Most
of the plants are started from
cuttings while a few of them
are begun from seeds.
Since plants are also grown

called "the bird of paradise"
from South Africa, which re
quires six to seven years to
reach the flowering stage. An
other is the "sensitive" plant
or mimosa. It has leaves re

touched, curl up and droop.
The shrimp plant resembles

The greenhouse also con
tains a tropical room. This
room is kept at a higher tem

Fate Lies
In Senate
Colbert To Offer
Measure Tuesday
The immediate fate of the
proposed Student Tribunal
will rest with the Faculty
Senate when it is brought up
Tuesday by J. P. Colbert,
Dean of Student Affairs.
"A copy of the charter and
a printed history of the Trib
unal plans have been distrib
uted to all members of the
Faculty Senate," Dean Col
bert said.
Regents Next
If the Senate approves the
Tribunal as is, it would then
go to the Board of Regents for
approval, Dean Colbert said.
In this case, he speculated
that the Tribunal could go in
to effect in time for the May
elections. ,
If the Senate disapproves
some portion of the Tribunal
charter, it will be sent back
to the Student Council for
more work.
University students ap
proved the charter by a vote
of 1,428 to 417 at an election
held during spring semester
Fourth Year
Four years of work by the
Student Council have gone in
to the Tribunal, according to
president Helen Gourlay.
During this time, the Council
contacted 18 or 20 schools
concerning student tribunals.

has been in existence for 18
years, is cited in the letter
