E C E N T L Y T H E R I G H T of a n anchor r e p o r t e r to a t t e n d a n d r e p o r t o n the p r o ceedings of student-faculty c o m m i t t e e s has been q u e s t i o n e d . A r e p o r t e r ' s r e q u e s t to sit in on a Religious Life C o m m i t t e e m e e t i n g v/as d e n i e d a n d he was asked to leave. T h e c o m m i t t e e decided t h a t the c o m m i t t e e c h a i r m a n should be c o n s u l t e d b e f o r e h a n d by a r e p o r t e r . T h e c h a i r m a n w o u l d t h e n decide wiiether an anchor r e p r e s e n t a t i v e w o u l d be perm i t t e d to observe. R L C c h a i r m a n Dr. Elton B r u i n s has since r u l e d t h a t n o r e p o r t e r s will he allowed to be present at meetings of his committee. T h e role of the student-faculty c o m m i t t e e is to m a k e policy r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s on all areas of c a m p u s life. T h e s t u d e n t s a n d faculty members o n the c o m m i t t e e o f t e n m a k e decisions on m a t t e r s of great significance to the college comm u n i t y as a whole. It is our c o n t e n t i o n t h a t c o m m i t t e e treat ment of significant issues deserves w i d e s p r e a d coverage in the anchor, which is the chief source of i n f o r m a t i o n for the c a m p u s . It is t h e right of a s t u d e n t not only to k n o w t h e decisions which affect h i m , b u t also the source a n d reas oning b e h i n d these decisions.

Tliii icfi't exactly what we had in mind in the way of fire escapes.

It is claimed t h a t the m i n u t e s of committees sufficiently present a clear i m a g e of w h a t occurs d u r i n g a m e e t i n g . W e feel, however, t h a t the m i n u t e s fail to present m o r e t h a n a mini m u m of i n f o r m a t i o n . Final decisions are rep o r t e d in the m i n u t e s , b u t the d e b a t e leading u p to the r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s finally d e c i d e d upon, t h e other o p i n i o n s which m i g h t have been given, a n d the actual spirit of t h e decision cannot be t r a n s m i t t e d via the m i n u t e s .

T IS N E C E S S A R Y to have a r e p o r t e r present to have these e l e m e n t s accurately r e p o r t e d . T o receive a clear p i c t u r e of w h a t h a p p e n s at a m e e t i n g f r o m a c o m m i t t e e m e m b e r or t h r o u g h the m i n u t e s is impossible. T h e member's views are filtered t h r o u g h his own perspective. T h e same holds t r u e for t h e m i n u t e s a n d their a u t h o r . A p a r t i c i p a t o r in a discussion c a n n o t give as objective an a c c o u n t of w h a t was said as a n o n - p a r t i c i p a t i n g reporter-observer.

S t u d e n t s o n the c o m m i t t e e are supposed to r e p r e s e n t the s t u d e n t body at large. T h e y s h o u l d be able to b r i n g back ideas on issues f r o m o t h e r s t u d e n t s . O t h e r o p i n i o n s can hardly be well d e v e l o p e d w i t h o u t a clear r e p o r t of exactly w h a t t r a n s p i r e d at a m e e t i n g . T h i s rep o r t m u s t show how t h e c o m m i t t e e has been t h i n k i n g , n o t merely w h a t t h e results or lack of results of t h e i r t h i n k i n g have been. It is t r u e t h a t the s t u d e n t s o n the committee r e p o r t back to the S t u d e n t Senate. T h e Senate, however, is an organ of r e p r e s e n t a t i o n , not an organ of i n f o r m a t i o n . T h e n e w s p a p e r is the only m e a n s t h a t a r e p o r t of w h a t h a p p e n s at the meetings can be effectively t r a n s m i t t e d to the s t u d e n t b o d y and faculty. The chief a r g u m e n t against h a v i n g r e p o r t ers present at meetings is t h a t their presence i n h i b i t s free a n d candid discussion. W h y s h o u l d a c o m m i t t e e m e m b e r be a f r a i d to express his o p i n i o n openly in the presence of a r e p o r t e r ? T h e r e is m o r e d a n g e r of m i s i n t e r p r e t i n g news a c q u i r e d f r o m secondary sources t h a n news g a t h e r e d on t h e spot by the r e p o r t e r himself. W h y s h o u l d any part of a c o m m i t t e e ' s deliberations be kept secret f r o m the p e o p l e w h o m it affects? T h e exclusion of a r e p o r t e r f r o m a m e e t i n g necessarily carries w i t h it an e l e m e n t of news suppression.

Controversy over the findings of the Warren Commission on the assassination of President Kennedy boiled anew as the nation marked the third anniversary of the tragedy. Continuing attacks on the Commission's findings prompted Gov. John B. Connaily of T e x a s and Sen. Richard B. Russell of Georgia to comment, Gov. Connaily, riding in the car with President Kennedy, was wounded by the gunfire in Dallas while Sen. Russell w a s a m e m b e r of the investigating Commission. After stating that he accepted the finding that there was only one assassin—Lee Harvey Oswald, Gov. Connaily l a b e l e d Commission critics "journalistic scavengers" and charged that attacks on the report were "politically motivated." General Eisenhower may make a good-will trip to Asia next year at President Johnson's request. A "leveling off" in the buildup of armed forces at home and in Vietnam w a s announced by the Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. Needed recruits will amount to two-thirds of last year's amount or about 600,000 men. If the rate of volunteers remains the s a m e , 22,000 men a month will be drafted. New York Recent polls show that the nation by a 5-to-l ratio feels that

President Kennedy will be remembered as a greater President than Lyndon Johnson. The Louis Harris public opinion poll reported ihat Gov. Romney now rates as a 54-to-46 per cent favorite for President over Lyndon B. Johnson, and makes the best showing of any Republican who was matched against Mr. Johnson in the poll. A Gallup Poll showed Mr. Romney is favored among Republicans 39 to 31 per cent over Richard Nixon. California's Governor-elect Ronald Reagon was third with 8 per cent. A Gallup Poll also found that only 19 per cent favored a tax increase while 73 per cent opposed it. Germany A second election gain by the National Democratic P a r t y (NPD) has heightened concern about a possible revival of Nazism in West Germany. The N P D won 7.4 per cent of the popular vote in Bavaria's State elections Nov. 20. It captured 15 of the 204 seats in the Bavarian State Parliament. The unexpected Bavarian gain followed an unexpectedly strong showing two weeks earlier in the state of Hesse, where the N P D got nearly eight per cent of the vote and eight of % seats in the state's parliament. The NPD. masterminded by Fritz Thielen and Adolf von Thadden. was constructed only two years ago.

A "Grand Coalition" between the ruling Christian Democratic Party and the Social Democratic Party of Willie Brandt s e e m s to be in the making. Kurt-Georg Kiesinger, head of the Christian Democratic party, will be chancellor while West Berlin Mayor Willie Brandt will assume the post of vice-chancellor. Spain This country has a new law a s of Nov. 22, separating the functions of the chief of state and the head of government, both now held by the aging Generalissimo Francisco Franco. Italy Flood waters from the River Arno poured across the part of Florence that visitors know best as the city's "historical center." It will take 20 years to repair most of the damaged art objects. Peking The Red Guards have been ordered to go home and to do work. Rumors are increasing that Comrade Lin Piao is now directing the course of China in the name of Chairman Mao Tsetung. Japanese experts on the government of mainland China are now sure that the Red Guards were being used to destroy a large block of opposition within the Communist party. They doubted that either side has been successful and added that in no way would this mean the overthrow of the Communist government.
