Student Senate ocquiesces on gay dance

We have at least once this year
decried the meagre attendance at
Student Senate meetings. We are now
forced to rescind those words.

After the last meeting. in which a
near-record 3:2 senators showed up to
rescind Student Government tSGit
sponsorship of the gay dance. we can
only hope that all the latent partici-
patory democrats will crawl back to
their darkened abodes where they can
do the L'niversity student body no
further harm.

The most obvious question. which
undoubtedly has a great many stu~
dents scratching their heads in bewil—
derment. is: How can the Student

ously some fine lines being drawn.

For instance. there is the “philo-
sophical" argument. It holds that St}

—that kind of thing is better left to
administrators. But have we not

There is also the “practical” ar-
gument which voices the fear that SH
will be left holding the bag if any
destruction results from the dance
That is a legitimate concern. although
there is no reason to believe that any
violence would occur. A reasonable
solution would have been to insist on
the usual security arrangements for
such events. Rescinding sponsorship
for the dance for such reasons
amounts to an extreme overreaction
to an improbable possibility.

The other frequently given ration

ale for revoking SH sponsorship is
that t'iiiversity administrators would
not take kindly to S(l‘s sponsoring the
dance The repercussions would sup—

Student Senate with regard to the gay
students dance seem contradictory. While

affirm the right of each individual to the
sexual behavior of his choice.

However. we believe the dance as an 50‘
sponsored function is wrong irom both a
philosophical and pragmatic standpoint.

I’llIl.(DSUI’IIK‘ALLY. it is not the
responsibility or the right oi Student
Government to recognize student groups
ty sponsoring a dance. we would have in
effect [)(‘l‘itti‘mt'd duties that are not ours to
pertorm and granted a social sanction to a
small segment of students. neither of
which is logical action.

l’ragmatically, and perhaps more
importantly. the dance creates additional
problems Since the (iay ('oalition is
unrecognized by the l'niversity. Student
Government would have to sign all con-
tracts and accept all responsibility for the
dance Any damages to property and
people would make $0 liable. Realizing
the fact that all students could attend the
dance because each student is a member
oi 8(5. we believe that the possibility of
\iolent contlict [such as that at a similar
tunction at the l'niversity oi Louisvillel is
a reatone, Any suits or damages resulting
trom such conilict would come directly to
sit. and nocollaterat the (tay (‘oalition has
ottered could cover the expense such
damages and suits suggest Further. an
open dance oi this sort would lessen the
etiect the gays themselves desire

The statement by Mr. .lunkin at our Nov.
31 meeting that gays could iind no other
place to have this dance was proved a
fabrication by Senator Stith. Applying
their funds to reserving one of the three
places the senator found and is willing to
assist them in reserving would allow the
(iay (‘oalition to have their dance in the
situation they desire. Disappointingly. Mr.
.tunkiii had misrepresented the iacts and
yet his credibility move toward a Nixonian

problems of aiding his organization.

stilt'tileRlLY. we must consider SG's
relationship with the administration.
While all senators represent students and
not administrators. there are times when
a good rapport with the administration is a
necessary mechanism tor effective action
tor the students of the L'niversity. ()ur
discussions with administrators convinced
us that sponsorship of the dance would
bring significant harm to administrative
relations (‘oupling this with the preceding
reasons. we believe that the liabilities
incurred by sponsorship greatly outweigh
the assets to be accrued by SG and its

Summarily. we recognize that the
solution to the problem is recognition of


(‘oalition as a legitimate student
organization with all due privileges.

Whether this truly assuaged the con-
sciences ot the senators who voted down
the dance is debatable. They know that the
administration is not going to budge on
their behest. especially when it was the
administration whom they were serving
by voting down the dance.

UNI“. ()l'PISTlON raised by these
maneuvers is why are the Greek
senators so solidly behind the ad—

ministration on these issues‘.‘ Why were
they unable to tight the administration in
its irrational stance on gay activities on

'l‘he traternities and sororities have

these organizations to administrative
