figurehead, being otherwise fundamentally unsound in placing such
administrative power in the hands
of two.
We believe that the Board of Ti
has acted somewhat hastily in
centralizing all of the administrative power of the University, both
business and scholastic, in two men.
This has deprived the University, its
students and the people of the state
of the wisdom and knowledge of the
University Senate.
Therefore, we ask The Kernel to
print this letter voicing our disapproval of this action, and that it
print a notice that a student meeting be held at some date designated
by the Student Legislature.
