PROPOSAL FOR USE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ON CAMPUS
Dr. DeNicola reported on the current status of the proposal which has now been abbreviated into a resolution. Dr. DeNicola went briefly over the resolution's provisions. There was considerable discussion about Item Number Three in respect to keeping alcoholic beverages in closed containers while transporting to authorized areas of consumption. It was finally decided to retain wording in Item Number Three as is.
Dean Pease argued strongly to change the effective date from September 10 to, at the earliest, October 1. His major argument was that his office, student court, and student faculty representatives should have time to record input from the whole college community and work out detailed implementation [procedures] for the resolution, in particular some sort of system of fines and penalties for infractions. He felt that the September 10 date would not provide sufficient time to examine these areas throughly. There followed considerable discussion of this point with emphasis on how such implementation of the measure should rightly be worked out by the office of student affairs and other affected parties.
Dr. Hicks moved that the resolution be adopted, seconded by Dr. Rodgers. There was further discussion, Mr. Justice spoke against the resolution. The question was called by Dr. Rodgers. The motion passed 10 - 4.
There was discussion on traffic rules change proposal by Mr. Wells with specific reference for a suggested increase from $3.00 to $5.00 for student parking decals. Dr. Danowitz suggested that as committee chairman he write a letter to Mr. Wells suggesting that, since revision in parking regulations will be forthcoming in the early part of the next academic year, no increases or changes be made until this committee can take proper action. The committee supported Dr. Danowitz's suggestion.
