At a meeting last night that was mainly routine and administrative, Student Activities Council delegates voted on a plethora of issues, ranging from constitutional questions to recognition of student groups. In the first major issue of the evening, delegates voted overwhelmingly to suspend a section of the body's constitution and approve the Steering Committee's final two months of operation with only four voting members. The committee, which normally contains five SAC members, is short-handed since the departure of Wharton junior Erin Raccah to Taiwan for the semester. In a separate issue, SAC approved more stringent rules for groups who wish to paint the Book Store wall, which faces 38th Street. In the new policy, groups must cover the ground with a tarp while painting, in order to prevent people from slipping on the wet paint which might be dripped on the ground. 'Wet Paint' signs will also have to be posted, after the completion of such painting. Elections for four Finance Committee positions were also held. SAC delegates elected Wharton sophomore Cesar Hernandez, Wharton junior Howard Radzely, College sophomore Juraporn Wanapan and College sophomore Jonathan Goldstein. The co-educational honor fraternity Phi Sigma Pi received a negative recommendation from the Steering Committee due to redundant and ambiguous functions with other SAC recognized groups and its selective membership. It failed to gain recognition by a vote of 73-38 in favor of recognition. 76 votes were needed to grant recognition.Comments powered by Disqus
