possibility of combining both
At the conclusion of its inquiry,
the merging committee suggested last
Sunday that instead of merging the
two organizations, they be dissolved
and a newiy structured International
Club be formed.
IT WAS ALSO suggested that a
steering committee be formed to start
drafting a preliminary constitution for
a new organization and prepare for
election of officers before the end of
the semester.
A meeting of NIA and PTP ex
ecutives approved setting up the new
International Club.
F. H. Hermes, a member of the
merging committee, said that any
person interested in international af
fairs and activities could sign up for
this committee in the Foreign
Students Office.

steps this semester. It will start func

plans made for this semester.

and prominent graduates of the
University to the campus for three
days. They will discuss with students
their personal formulas of success and

by members as to the failure of NIA
and PTP to carry out their objectives.
"There is no proper coordination
in the executive body of NIA," said
Lajpat R. Batra, vice president of
NIA," and as a result the NIA has
not been able to function as effectively
as it should."

He said the fact that the structure
has been changed does not show suc

HERMES SAID that PTP has also
been a failure mainly because its ex

invitation to students who are really
interested in harmonious international
Mohinder Atwal, chairman of the
merging committee, said of the two
organizations "Both these groups hav
become very sectarian."
Atwal added that fraternities and
sororities, being a vital force on cam
pus, tend to discriminate against
foreign students. As PTP had its main
backing from Greeks, he said, it is
bound to be a failure as an interna
tional organization.

The club was organized last year on
an experimental basis, and this year's
club wants several competitive

He added that Wayne Moles, an ad
vanced fencer, would like to take
several club members with him to
duel the University of Minnesota's
club in Minneapolis in the spring.
BESIDES THE Minneapolis event,
the club will conduct a single
elimination tournament between
members at the end of the 10-week
course, Novak added.
He said the Women's P.E. Depart

Commenting on the new
organization, Atwal said "The purpose
of this new organization would be to
interest every person on campus to
become a member."
HE ADDED that a new organiza
tion would give every nation
represented on campus an equal
voice. The executive committee would
be elected from the general members.
The executive committee would be
responsible to a Board of Directors.
"The Board would be made up
of one representative from each of
the national groups which make up
the new international organization."
Atwal said.
Atwal added that the broad scope
of the new organization would create
opportunities for faculty members and
others to be actively involved.
Hermes concluded that the merg
ing report is not binding but more
of a suggestion as to how to form
and run an effective and truly in
