COMMENT: I have no substantial objection to this proposal
provided the Board understands and fully supports its implications.
I am thinking of the occasional case of an 18-year-old student
who is in extremely serious difficulty and who refuses to consent
to informing his parents. The Dean of Students would be required

1.44 1st sentence (Providing that the Student Government President,
rather than the President of the University, will make temporary

Government President is absent from the campus, perhaps for
an extended period, or if he simply fails to make such temporary
1. 51 (Adding the clause, "unless imposed by the U. J-Board", to the

and procedure for determining that "improper means" have been
used to secure evidence.

considered and rejected by the Committee; and it is my view that the Board should
