TO DISCUSS STUDENT COUNCIL

Forum Will be Held in Union.--Work of Committees to be Reviewed.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

At the next meeting of the Forum, to be held in the Dining Room of the Union next Wednesday evening, under the direction of the Union and the Speakers Club, the general subject for discussion will be the Student Council. In view of the recent report of the Council the trend of the discussion may best be expressed thus: "The Student, Council--What Has it Done?"

The discussion will be somewhat different from former ones in the Forum, in that several questions will be presented for consideration. The work of each of the standing committees of the Council will be taken up. Some of the resolutions to be presented follow: Should not the committee on publications submit some plan for the merger of all the undergraduate publications in the College (exclusive of the CRIMSON and the Lampoon) into one really representative Harvard magazine? Should there be any change in the selection or organization of the Student Council? Should not the Committee on Scholarship submit a plan for regulating undergraduate extra-curriculum activities in line with the two-sport rule in athletics? Should not the Committee on Scholarship suggest some remedy for the present weaknesses of the section meeting? Other questions which may be discussed are: How can the committee on Subsidiary Athletics interest more men of the College in regular exercise? How can an interest in student affairs and in the work of the Student Council be best fostered among the undergraduates? The main discussion, however, will be concerning what the Student Council has done and what it can do.

It is hoped that a large number will be present at this meeting of the Forum and that questions other than those already noted above will be brought up for consideration.
