Students, Faculty, and Administrators:

I am writing this letter to you, the people who make
up tills "community", after the Towne Meeting
HOUSING which was held tonight (Monday). ; .. j
COHPLAIHTS This is the second Towne Meeting that 1 have been
a pari
part ot.
of. m e iirsct
The first, wmen
which Ii?was
was instrumental in
planning and pulling off;-addressed itself to many of
the same gripes— basically student rights and the
budgetary policies of the college.
From my experiences of the first Towne Meeting, I
was skeptically enthusiastic about the second one.
The aftermath of the first was personal defeat and its
acrid lesson is still with me.
I Now, the second Towne meeting is over- minutes
assed on the clock which will never be recaptured—
nit the business of that meeting is now before the
students and the administrators. A MANDATE of
action was surely placed on the shoulders of everyone*
involved. To work together on these problems great
and small is now the task. On October 29, at 3:SOjp.m..
in Room 114 ZurnHall. there will be a meeting of R US
at which we will see if the seed planted tonight has
sprouted, if it has, future meetings will determine if
its fruit is sweet, or Be rid as was that of the first.
