Tuesday, February 27, 1962 ■w^ By-Laws, Dorms, Flag Trustees To Scrutinize University Improvements By ED RICKARDS Chronicle Feature Editor The Board of Trustees meets Friday at 11 a.m. in 201 Allen Building. Reliable sources say most of the business to be transacted at the meeting is "routine" in nature. Several items reportedly on the agenda are not routine. These include consideration of a proposal to adopt new by-laws for the University, review of the institutional advancement program, commissioning of a school flag and discussion of West Campus dormitory conditions. Sources say the Trustees will not elect a successor to President Deryl Hart. It is generally agreed that many factors have changed since Dr. Hart assumed the Presidency, originally on a pro-tem status, and that he will probably remain as President at least until August 2, 1963. Dr. Hart reaches the present mandatory retirement age on that date. By-Laws Proposal The proposal to adopt new by-laws will be made by the Trustees' Committee on the University Charter and By-laws, chaired by Kenneth C. Brim. Brim says his committee will not report on the University Charter, the act of the North Carolina State Legislature that established the University as a non-profit corporation with 36 trustees. The new by-laws, statutes enacted by the Trustees to organize the administrative structure, would replace, if adopted, a set that Brim says "grew like Topsy." "The present by-laws," Brim stated, "were written for Trinity College when it had several hundred students. While the by-laws have been added to and amended, they have never been completely adapted to a large university." No Reorganization The rewritten by-laws will not change the administrative organization of the school, Brim stated.

In the race for WSGA president, candidates Sue Curry and Anne Irwin have each released platforms calling for improvements and revisions in conditions on East. Great similarities are evident in the purpose they see 'in WSGA. Both stress communication between the Woman'; College students themselves, the two campuses, students anc faculty, and students and administration. Miss Irwin adds education and perspective to her list of purposes. rBoth Miss Curry and Miss Irwin feel the need of having house meetings precede the large WSGA assemblies so that individual student opinions can be better expressed. Both would like to see investigation of such matters as class attendance. Miss Curry's Plans Miss Curry's concrete plan& include continued rule revisions with emphasis on "self-responsibility"; curriculum evaluation a student activities secretary and an independent study program with a two-week period at the end of first semester for st inars and study. Miss Irwin's Position Miss Irwin would like to the minutes of each WSGA council meeting circulated WSGA council meet in a different dormitory parlor each week; the WSGA president hold regular office h(burs in the WSGA council room for terested students; WSGA and MSGA council meet at least once monthly; the Association work toward the realization of an effective student - faculty administrative committee. Judicial Board President Candidates for Judicial Board president, Sandy Harrison and Babs Proctor, state their plat forms as follows: Miss Harrison stresses that she does not picture a judicial representative as a "policeman with a bh club." Rather, she wants to see a certain uniformity and com munity spirit in the execution and following of the rules. She doesn't recommend an up heaval of the judicial set-up (Continued on page 4) YMCA To Conduct Interviews To Pick Nominees for Office The YMCA will conduct interviews Thursday and Friday in 201 Flowers to select candidates to run for its four executive offices, according to Joe Snead, 'Y' Secretary.

By DAVE NEWSOME Chronicle News Editor The 1962 Symposium will probe the influences of power structures on man's creative urges through a three-day series of lectures, seminars, and coffees, announced symposium committee chairman Karl Ray. Exploring the theme "Power Structures: Context for Creativity?", participants will discuss the question of whether such institutions inhibit or encourage man's creativity, according to Esther Booe, committee secretary. "The concept of 'power structures' as we view it may include specific institutions— a corporation's board of directors—and non-specific influences—pressures toward conformity," commented Ray. Creativity ranges from the "work of the artist to the personal fulfillment one can derive from involvement in 'worthwhile' work," continued Ray. Each day of the Symposium, scheduled Monday through Wednesday of next week, will be devoted to power structures in specific areas. The program will begin Monday evening at 7:30 in Page with Moorhead Wright examining the relationship of "The Individual and the Organization" in the opening address. Later that evening John Ciardi, Dr. Edward J. Shoben, Jr., Dr. Frank deVyver, Dr. Allan Sindler and Wright will form the panel for a seminar on "Power Structures and the Economic System." A student moderator, Jerry Barrier, will introduce some broad questions to the .panel, and then will open the discussion to the floor. Ciardi, poetry editor of the Saturday Review, will deliver the Symposium's second major address Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. in Page. Concentrating on power structures in the arts, Ciardi will discuss "The Poet and Society." Shoben, Ciardi, Iain Hamilton and Gregory Ivey will be panelists for Tuesday's seminar on influences in the arts, moderated by Mel Thrash and scheduled for 8:45 in Page. Third major speaker for the Symposium, Shoben, will ex- maine the topic "Power Structures and Individualism Reconsidered." The talk, slated for Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. in Woman's College Auditorium, will precede a seminar on "Power Structures and Education." Wright, Ciardi, Shoben and Dr. Paul M. Gross will constitute the panel for the final seminar, moderated by Steve Braswell. Symposium committee will sponsor informal coffees on both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at 3 in locations yet to be announced. "Through participation in the Symposium, especially the seminars and coffees, the com- (Continued on page 5) Group To Select 9 Housemasters, 15 Assistants A committee Composed of Dean Cox, Dean Womble and Gerald Wilson, head housemaster, will select nine housemasters and fifteen assistant housemasters in interviews April 6-14, according to Wilson. Application blanks are now available in 109 and 118 Allen and must be returned to Room 109 by March 23. Applicants will sign for an interview appointment when they return their application. Juniors Or Seniors Assistant housemasters must be rising juniors or seniors while housemasters are graduate students. The committee will announce its selections by April 25. Wilson stated that assistant housemasters serve a two-fold purpose. First, they co-operate with the housemaster in his program. Their main task is one of counseling freshmen in the entire range of their activities, primarily in academic matters and in problems arising within the houses. Housemasters and assistants will return to the campus next fall on September 12 in order to help with Orientation Week.
