The proper order I-!. O. The p e t i t i o n recently signed and sent by 405 students t o the Board of Trustees asked that the faculty right of review, presently incorporated in the c o m m i t t e e structure, be revoked. The rationale given in the p e t i t i o n is that such a f a c u l t y review " i n effect negates the democratic represent a t i o n of the c o m m i t t e e s t ru c t u re." A d m i t t e d l y , the c o m m u n i t y government setup has drawbacks when practical problems need immediate solutions. The c o m m i t t e e structure is n o t much more

ancl|or efficient than the older system, and questions of proper a u t h o r i t y o f t e n arise. But even w i t h rts shortcomings, the c o m m u n i t y

concept represents a new sharing of responsibility among all segments of the campus. However, whenever any one person or group of persons maintains a " v e t o " right, those persons become automatically more p o w e r f u l than any g r o u p w h i c h is deprived of such rights. Because they are u l t i m a t e l y responsible for the College, the trustees may reserve the right to review any action by the College's decision-making bodies. As stated in t h e p e t i t i o n , that review should be exercised in the light of the consideration w h i c h the democratic structure has already given to the t o p i c or proposal. We heartily endorse the petition as being sound and intelligent, and we urge the Board of Trustees t o carefully consider the implications of the present structure. The Board must ask whether or not there is adequate j u s t i f i c a t i o n for any person or group short of the Board itself to have veto powers if all segments of the c o m m u n i t y do not have those powers.

Democracy for all The request f r o m the Black C o a l i t i o n and the black students on campus for representation on the College Judicial Board and the Student Standing and Appeals C o m m i t t e e deserves careful consideration and should be q u i c k l y considered by the proper governing bodies. The request stems f r o m the recognition by the black students of the racist sentiment (no matter how w h a t degree pervasive, conscious or unconscious) t h a t does exist among many w h i t e members of the Hope C o m m u n i t y . T o c o n f r o n t and challenge this sentiment in the College's judiciary is the essence of the blacks' request. The special measures requested by the black students are justified by the special nature of the problem. If the c o n d i t i o n on w h i c h the black students have b u i l t their argument, namely

that racism is not foreign t o Hope and is a f f i r m e d by the College government by meeting the requests, w h i c h is in effect stating that the black students were justified in refusing to be tried b y an all w h i t e judiciary, then the suspension of the black students at this t i m e w o u l d be unjust. The Student Standing and Appeals C o m m i t t e e should postpone its action on the t w o black students u n t i l the requests of the black students have been considered; and if the requests are f o u n d valid and met, the Student Standing and Appeals C o m m i t t e e should reverse a decision of the College Judicial Board. In any case careful consideration should be given to the moderate, rational requests of the black students and no action should be taken concerning t h e t w o black students u n t i l a decision on t h e requests is made.
