' -----~--------- Four Students Attend N'SA Conference Saturday, November 9, Rosemary Weisel, Frank Nelson, Leo Munsterman, and Jeannine Gil· :ber:tson attended the National Student Association Convention held in Coffman Union at U of M, Minneapolis. One Oif the major topics for discussion was the possibility of havin.g member colleges sponser NSA conventions in conjunction w~th .a. convocation. J:n this way all the students of the host colleges would benefiit from it, and cost would ~e reduced by haiving the NSA delegates meet at the time of the convocation instead of at a separate time. The con- L:lterature Club On Tuesday, November 26, !he Literature Cl.wb will present its second program in the Science Office Lounge. Dr. Vlad Thomas and Mr. Richard Grant of the UMM staf,f will give in<troductory talks dealing principally with the narraltive techniques of aUJthor, J~mes Joyce.

B., Chairman of the Music Department at the Col:lege of St. .Benedict. A Vcigi.te iiashion show, a te:a, arid adfournment of the conference followed. On most co]lege campuses, the A WS is functional in bringing the ofif-0ampus and on~us women students into a co-Operative group, which organizes and presents activities pertinent to the woman student's life. lt is hoped that UMM !female students will consider the me·r<its of such a clwb antl bring about Us organization on this campus. ,·ocation would have to be a weekend affair such as the joint LeadeI'shLp Convocation - NSA Convention held annually at UMiD. The most ideal program would include four or five such convocations per year. This would mean that each college would sponser one every ·three or four yeal'S. . · Another item discussed was the development of a directory. This would. serve to ~link campuses together by providing names od' people on each campus to contact :£or information on issues. For example, ' if we in Morris were havin·g trouble with our honor code, we would have access to people on other campuses whom we could contact to see how they handled the situ•ation. The afternoon session was spent excllang<ing ideas w h i c h V'arious scllools have t ried or are trying. Among the ideas discussed were a group tour of Europe, fund-raising hootenal'lies, sponsorsh~p of African students, sponsorship of Southern U. S. Negroes, co-op book stores, and student discount cards. Attention! The Student Union Board is in need of a treasurer. This position is one of major. r esponsi- . bility and authority in the SUB.
