Acceptance or rejection of the newly drafted constitution of the National Student Association rests in the hands of students of the College, the Student Council decided unanimously late last night.
Rejecting an opportunity to ratify the document under grants of power set forth in its own constitution, the Council agreed that students of the College should have the last word in the matter.
The official resolution, adopted after almost three hours of testimony by delegates to the N.S.A. Constitutional Convention, sets forth Council approval of the principles of the N.S.A. and provides that "after further study of the Constitution..." it will present the document to the students for vote "with the recommendation that it be approved...."
