For Coordination, Regulation

unanimously adopted a plan
for activity regulation and co
ordination at its last regular

president was presented
to the Council as a means
to further the Council func
tion of fulfilling the purpose
of the Council as set down
in its constitution.
Council Constitution
Article II of the Council
constitution states that, "The
purpose of this organization
shall be to act as the su
preme student governing
body in regulation and coor-
one of its rurDoses. feels it
can act as the coordinating
body in the field of campus
activities. By assuming the
duties of direction and con
trol of the activities, in so
far as these activities are re
lated to each other and to
the University, the Student
Council can begin to function
more in the areas where ac
tion is needed."
The basil process by which
the desired coordination would
be achieved weuld require the
Council to enact such supple
mentary legislation at would
be necessary from time to
time, and the Council would
enforce the University rules
and its own rule and regu
lations in cooperation with
the other agencies concerned.
"The emphasis would not
be on hampering the free
growth of activities, but
rather on the formation of a
progressive and definite ac
ivities system which would
better teach the valuable les
sons that are to be learned
by participation in activities
than is being done now," the
report stated.
Need for Coordination
Reasons listed by the re
port for the necessity of co
ordination and control of ac
tivities were: faulty handling
of financial affairs, establish
ing continuity and coordina
tion in organizations and dis
semination of information
and regulations to the differ
ent activities. Regulation of
the use of University facili
ties was also listed.
The report stated that
"many organizations do not
channel all, or in some cases,
any of their money through
the Student Activities Office.
Bills are sometimes paid out
of 'slush funds', and in many
cases the advisor has no
knowledge of these actions.

For Council
Student Council elections
are taking place today at
polls in Selleck Quad, Love
Library, Student Union and
Ag Union.
Polls opened at 7:30 a.m.
and will close at 7 p.m.
Students in the College of

Therefore, control of financial
affairs is necessary
It was also pointed out
that there has been no up-to-date
list of approved or
ganizations, which are en
titled to use University facili
ties. Some groups use the
name of the University with
out securing approval of this
usage. Consequently, the Uni
versity assumes responsibility
for these groups, but has no
control over their actions.
'in some areas there is an
over-lapping of the purposes
of the organizations. The Stu

coordinator with the admin-
istration wouia eliminate ims ;
practice." i
One Group
The report also stated that
"there is a need for one
group to handle all the in -
formation and regulations
pertaining to organizations.
The publication of the Activi
ties Handbook is the first
step in this direction."
The Council presently has
the areas of. Group Records,
Formation of a New Activity
and University Financial Reg
ulation as areas of legislation
or regulation. The enforce
ment of records regulations
might possibly be the most
important area of regulation,
the report stated.
The report also stated that
"enforcement of the financial
regulations would result in
the obvious advantages of
eliminating the risk of mone
tary loss to an organization
though unscrupulous actions
or ignorance on the part of
the officers.
For the third time in his
college career, Elwin Ran

girls who were affected, I
wouldn't be worrying about
this so much," she said.
"The University has a tra

continue," Dr. Ashton added.
The physical education pro

years, Miss Ashton noted. "In
1953 when we first began our
study, only 91 per cent of the
girls involved approved. Since
then we have studied their
suggestions and come up with
a better program."
Dr. White Comments
Miss Ashton also cited
statements by Dr. Paul Dud
ley White, physician to Presi
dent Eisenhower, to bolster
her stand on the issue.
According to White, the late
teens and early twenties are
age groups which are cur
rently neglecting physical ex
ercise. White feels this may
rescult in cardio-vascular ail
ments during later years.
In answer to these state
ments, Dean Walter Militzer
of the College of Arts and Sci

which led to the proposal for

"A lift to work" and nothing
more, has allowed some of
the fine sculptures of David
Seyler, associate professor of
art, to begin world-wide ex
hibition. Seyler, who studied in Italy,
the home country of such
masters as Michelango, Don
atello and Cellini, was given
a grant from Woods Charit
able Foundation which per
mitted him to study in Flor
ence. One morning the direc
tor of Tornabuoni gave hira
a ride to work. Seyler thought
it was nothing more than a
lift to work and was sur
prised when the director
asked to see his work.
Not a Word
"He looked at my pieces
without saying a word until
one of the foundrymen came
up to ask how I wanted the
sculptures packed for ship
ment to the United States,-'
Prof. Seyler recalled. "Then
he asked if I couldn't leave
the work in Florence for a
Seyler agreed and returned
to the University to resume
his teaching at the start of
the spring semester.
Last week he recleved word
from Tornabuoni that the gal
lery had placed his work on
exhibition, that two pieces
were ordered for purchase,
and that a gallery in Vienna
and the America House ' in
Munich would like to have
his "show" before ft is re
turned to this country.
Admittedly pleased at the
attention his small, most of
them about a foot high,
bronze sculptures are getting
in Europe, Prof. Seyler is a
little apprehensive about fu
ture receptions.
'Not Abstract
"My new pieces," he ex
plains, "are not abstract.
Thre are lots of places now,
you know, where if you are
not abstract, you are nothing.
Abstraction is the thing; it's
being done, and you can win
little prizes with it.

straction. I don't get any sat
isfaction out of doing it any
more," said Seyler.
