To Unify Dorm Activities
Presidents and representa
tives of the University's nine
dorms formed an inter-dorm
coordinating body at a meet
ing Wednesday night in Abel
The representatives i n d i -cated
at the time that this
coordinating body will be only
temporary, and that they
hope to form a permanent inter-dorm
council sometime
next year.
Before the coordinating
body was established, the
meeting's representatives dis
cussed how the dorms should
be represented on the council
and how much power the
council should have over all
the dorms.
Tony Redman. Cather Hall
president, questioned how
strong and permanent a dorm
council should be.
""If something really stable
Hyde Park
Thursday's Hyde Park dis
cussions revolved around re
ligion, a previously un
touched issue at the forum.
An official ambassador from
one religious group appeared
and members from another
organization spoke.
The United Campus Chris
tian Fellowship's UCCF) stu
dent cabinet president, Rog
er Ilcff, read a UCCF policy
statement before the forum.
Ileff read. "To be a stu
dent in a -university is to be
long to a community engaged
in revolution." The statement
continued. "We believe that
the present concern over the
use of warfare as a political
alternative is a valid one.
""We believe that an incor
rect tension exists that makes
real solutions impossible. The
tension on a university cam
pus cannot be between revo
lution and non-revolution."
Part of the conclusion of the
statement read, "The student
of today must be satisfied
with nothing less than a vis
ionary administration, a de
dicated faculty and the free
dom to learn."
A group of the speakers at
the forum were from one
small unnamed religious
group. The speakers dis
cussed the Bible and related
their personal religious exper
iences. Medical School

At the test session, the eun

examination and also one of
the 'thirteen touching area

the independent role of the
Independents," he said.
Marv Almy, RAM Selleck)
president, pointed out that the
dorms need a strong council
to be better equipped to work
out their problems.
Almy said that a dorm
council could solve problems
such as those involving the
maids, food and rooms. He
noted that the number of dorm
residents will continue to in
crease substantially in t h e
next few years, and that tney

M. Edward Bryan, director
of housing, explained that
when he first came to the
University the dorms were all
run separately, but that with
the addition of Abel Hall and

of students who can express

be extremely helpful.

How Much Power?

working on problems for start

Other agreements establish

dorms want may attend the
meetings. Each dorm will
pick its own represcntath e
