Key to the Problem


After voting to expand its membership, the Crimson Key recently announced that it will be able to take on some Student Council service functions next fall. The Council Forum will definitely operate under the Key next year and Key members expect to take over other Council activities, perhaps all in the future.

The Key will probably profit by its expansion. But the Council will also benefit. Since the introduction of the elective system, the Council, as we have pointed out before, has tended to forget its main advisory function for activities seem, perhaps, newsworthy operations more likely to gain votes for members.

When the Council relinquishes all of these service functions and finally returns to its primary purpose, the College will be that much better off. This latest Key-Council agreement should be a step preliminary to the full stride.
