A Procedure* suggested for coping with the Present Emergency
Let each department elect 3 representatives (a faculty member elected by the full time faculty, a graduate student elected by the graduate students, an undergraduate student elected by the undergraduate students of the department) to meet together with similarly elected representatives of other departments and choose from among themselves a smaller (less unwieldy sized) committee to meet with the administration and work out within 12 to 24 hours a proposal which the whole college can vote upon within 48 hours in order to resolve the serious problems facing the college.
*Suggested by those students and faculty members of the Biology Department who formed a discussion group known (April 12) as the Biology Caucus and who passed the following resolution by a vote of 28 for, none opposed and one abstention:
Resolved that each department elects three representatives, one by the full time faculty, one by the graduate students and one by the undergraduate students, to meet with similarly elected representatives of other departments and choose a smaller subcommittee to meet with the Administration and work out a proposal within 12 to 24 hours to be voted upon by the whole college within 48 hours in order to resolve the serious problems facing the college
THE BIOLOGY CAUCUS EARNESTLY HOPES THAT OTHER DEPARTMENTS WILL CONCUR IN THIS RESOLUTION. It is suggested that the election by held by each department as early as possible (On Monday?)
