constitution made by the convention
are listed in the order in which they
appear in the constitution. ,
Preamble The clause
acknowledging that the constitution
and ASUN is ordained and established
with the consent of the Board of
Regents was deleted.
ARTICLE II. Purposes The part
of the Article which listed the purpose
of ASUN to serve as an agency
to maintain a relationship between
students, faculty and adminisration
It was replaced with a clause
stating that ASUN should represent
the best interests of the students and
"strive for the largest legitimate in
fluence of the students in the func
tioning of the University."
ARTICLE VII. Powers of Organs
The second vice-president of ASUN
was given the additional duty of serv
ing as NSA coordinator. In the same
Article the Executive committee of
ASUN woud appoint the A P P
delegates and the Senate would have
the power to approve or disapprove
of the appointments.
Also in Article VII a clause was
added to the rights of student
recognizing that students have all
those rights enumerated in the Bill
of Rights and Student in t'.e Academic
by the ASUN court."
According to the present condition,
under which the election will be con
ducted, a new constitution must be
ratified by "at least 30 per cent of
the eligible students voting ... or
by the affirmative vote of 15 per cent
of the eligible voters when less than
30 per cent of the eligible students
In other words, if less than 30 per
cent of the students vote, the number
of "yes" votes necessary for passage
will remain at approximately 2700.

1969-70 ASUN offices begins Monday.

"The university with its
departmental structure, seems ill

Specifically, Lindsay proposed col

programs for high-risk students. He
noted a recent survey of 215 institu

such programs at all.
