The Student Council began action last night on setting the amount of its scholarships, changing student representation on the Salzburg Seminar's board of directors, and continuing its Ames Awards.
No final decisions were reached, however.
Albert B. Carter, Jr., chairman of a Council committee on scholarships, asked for at least $700 for awards to needy undergraduates. The Council now has $160 in its scholarship fund.
Though the figure $700 seemed amenable to all Council members, a decision was postponed until mid-April, pending new examination of the Council budget.
Council representation on the Salzburg Seminar board of directors, a straw vote showed, should consist of two men: one Council member intimately associated with Seminar activities, and another man, quite independent of the Seminar, who will act as a critic.
Ames Awards, given annually to three undergraduates most active in extra-curricular activities, will probably be cut considerably from the $100-per-person requested by the original Ames grant.
Earlier in the meeting, the Council voted to add $500 to the $2500 it has already given Phillips Brooks House this year. The Council also approved the report of the Harvard-Radcliffe committee that made recommendations about girls in College organizations.
The Committee's suggestions left restrictions on the influx of Annex students wholly to Radcliffe.
Machinery was also set up to form a committee that will screen volunteers for the College National Students Association delegation.
