ASUN Tables Housing Report
To Better Examine Statement
ASUN tabled the Ad Hoc
Housing Committee report
Wednesday until next week
after Senator Al Spangler sug
gested the Senate needed
more time to "scrutinize" the
statement before taking ac
tion on the committee's rec
ommendations. Although Student Senate
failed to act on the report,
the Housing Committee will
still present the statement to
the Faculty Senate Thursday
for discussion.
Students' Views
Since the Regents will meet
next week, Marv Almy, Hous
ing Committee chairman, sug
gested Senate act on the hous
ing recommendations before
the meeting so students'
views can also be represented.
Almy asked the Senate to
endorse the Ad Hoc Commit
tee's ten recommendations for
housing policy changes or to
adopt other suggestions to be
taken before the Regents.
Effective Next Fall
If the Regents approve the
policy changes, he said, the
new housing regulations could
go Into effect next fall.

Snyder Says Sophomores
Ought To Live On Campus
Associate Dean of Student
Affairs, Helen Snyder, has
submitted her opinions in a
minority report to be added
to the Ad Hoc Housing Com
mittee's recommended nous
" ing policy statements
"I agree with the report as
presented with one exception.
The committee has acknow
ledged the value of the group
living experience and has
placed belief in a progression
of independence in housing
choices as one advances
through college. This I agree
with. The divergence in my
thinking with the committee
proposal is related to the
speed of that progression,"
the report states.
Two Recommendations
"Specifically I would rec
ommend (1) that sophomores,
like freshmen, live on cam
pus; (2) that the specially ap
proved housing apply to the

seniors may live in on-cam-pus

housing policy recommenda

Ad Hoc Committee report but

housing regulations, he said,
the Committee "has aban
doned some of the achieve
ments made in men's hous

the rules which compel fresh
men and sophomores to live
in the dormitories. He added
that these students should be
required to live in "gener
ally approved housing."
Goals Endorsed
The Ad Hoc Housing Com
mittee goals "should be en
dorsed," he added, and in
particular the liberalized
women's housing rules.

Spring Sprung?
She gave her explanations,
reasoning that as the fresh
man year is spent in ad
justment to new learning and
living arrangements, as the
committee report states, "this
means the sophomore year
can be a developmental year
and a year to explore some
of the participation in group
experiences with more free
dom than is possible in the
first year.
"It is a time for some lead
ership to emerge and some
involvement with the actual
program making. This comes
from the continuity of the two
years and cements the rela
tionships with the life of the
campus and the University
Transition To Life
She also explains that the
transition to life after college
would come more appropriate
ly in the last two years of
college, when a student more
specifically enters his major
field and looks ahead to his
Her last reason states that
"many of the problems of ad
justment cited for freshmen
apply equally well to the new
transfer student."

Gather By-Laws Cause
Secession Of Floor 13
By Mark Gordon
Junior Staff Writer
The Cather Hall Executive
Council Tuesday night named
a five man committee to work
, with leaders of John F. Ken
nedy House, after the house
officially announced its seces
sion from the Cather Execu
tive Council.
Named to the committee
by Cather president Bruce
Bailey to work with Floor 13
in their dispute over the Ca
ther By-Laws were Jim Ca
vender, Cather vice-president,
Ron Swanda, floor ex
ecutive representative, Ron
Klutman, floor 10 executive
member, Ken Noha, floor 8
executive member, and Steve
Grenier, whose acceptance is
still pending his approval.
In a prepared statement,
floor 13 proclaimed that "the
Cather Hall government has
become too powerful, the Ex
ecutive Council has surpassed
its limits of authority in mak
ing the present by-laws and
that the Judicial Council has
surpassed its limits of author
ity in enforcing these by
laws." Individual Rights
It continued that they
"have threatened the indi
vidual rights of the residents
of this hall as guaranteed by
the United States Constitu
tion and the Constitution of
Cather Hall" and consequent
ly, the h o u s e has seceeded
from the Cather Executive
Floor president Robert
Wolff said that as soon as the
proposals in the proclama
tion are met, "we -will consid
er returning to Cather Hall."
The group's main request
centers on the by-laws which
have been on trial since Feb
ruary. Kennedy House contends
that the by-laws were hastily
enacted by the Executive
Council with the residents
having no voice in the deci
sion. They propose that the
Cather constitution be
amended to provide a refer
endum vote to be taken
among the residents on all

Gustafson was President of
the American Society of Me
chanical Engineers, former
Director of the Architectural

ers Association.

existing by-laws and all fu
ture by-laws.
They also desired a propos
al whereby all future amend
ments would automatically
be tabled for one week to en
able Executive members to
discuss the by-laws with their
floor residents.
Dress-Up Regulation
They referred specifically
to two by-laws in the procla
mation demanding that the
dress-up regulation by-law re
quiring residents to dress-up
at certain meals be repealed
and replaced by a recom
mendation of dress-up stan
dards. The other request
asked that the by-law on
crowding in meal lines be re
pealed until it can be en
forced upon the residents of
Pound Hall and Women's
Residence Hall as well as
The proclamation also re
quests changes that would
give the Floor judicial Boards
additional power and "to take
power away from the Hall
Judicial Board," Wolff said.
To prove their point, Wolff
said the House has been re
named John F. Kennedy Hall
and the student assistant
Gary Heaston has been tem
porarily assigned as the
hall's residence director.
Although they have with
drawn from Cather student
government, the floor still in
tends to abide by all s t a t e
and University regulations
Wolff said.
Abidte By Laws
"We plan to have our own
by-laws and a constitution"
he said, in adding that "our
main reason for secession is
to reform rather than to re
voke." After Wolff read the procla
mation at the Executive
Council meeting, the Council
proposed to freeze all Cather
13 funds and announced that
although Cather 13 was not
under Cather Hall jurisdic
tion the floor still lives in
Cather Hall and they will be
placed under the jurisdiction
of residence director J i m

Committee Meets
Bailey asked that the com
mittee meet at least twice in
the next week and have their
findings available for presen
tation at next week's Cather
Executive Council meeting.
"I hope they have an open
mind about this committee,"
Bailey said. "Although much
question has arisen over their
methods of applying changes,
I have to agree there is a ma
jority of unrest over the sit
uation (of hurriedly passing
Cather by-laws)."
"Since our main objective
as Executive Council is to co
ordinate and organize the
hall for the resident's benefit
I plan no meeting regularly
with them until something ii
worked out," Bailey said.
Referendum Vote
He added that areas the
committee will discuss in
clude the referendum vote
requested by Kennedy Hall, a
definition of common Cather
areas for judicial jurisdiction
asssignment and the automa
tic tabling of future by-laws.
Several Cather Executive
members disagreed with the
methods the hall used but
they all agreed that the by
law enacting system d o e i
need an adequate investiga
tion. Bill Kennedy, Cather social
chairman, said that they
"have a legitimate complaint
as sometimes we vote and
don't know what we are vot
ing for. I like the referendum
with the idea of waiting at
least one week after the item
is made before voting."
