The Thunderbird Tuesday, Octo6er 25, 1983 Housing costs concern council Trading Places THIS WEEK BY PAUL WARD ASSUSC Concert Coordinator ASSUSC Executive Council members expressed much concern during their regular meeting last week over the proposed rental costs for the new housing project to be built on college property by a private development company. According to Student Body President Mark Wade, ...we talked in Institutional Council meeting, its (housing) down to $140 plus utilities... Wade said that he told President Gerald R. Sherratt that figure was still too high and students feel certain it would encourage other apartment owners to increase their rental costs. Wade estimated the cost for one person S' 'X Concert group works for students Id like to start off by thanking The Thunderbird for allowing me to use their resources to say what I have to say. Next, Id like to thank those students who attended the Air Supply concert and gave such tremendous support. Concerts at SUSC are a unique thing. Having spoken with concert coordinators all across the country this summer, I learned that we are about the only college with an enrollment of less than 5,000 students that does major concerts. We can do this for two reasons. One because of the support of our student body and surrounding community, and two because we have an administration which allows us to think big. Id, like to apologize for any discomfort you may have experienced during the past few concerts. Please realize that we are doing the best we can with what we have. Bless its heart, the fieldhouse would need to be renovated to make an adequate barn. However, remember we are growing. This year is a foundation year, a year in which we bring big names in to show them the demand is here. Its working; both America and Air Supply commented that they would love to return to SUSC despite the discomforts, because of the warmth of the audience here. ASSUSC Concerts is a group of about ten guys who work for nothing because they love the final results. We appreciate them and appreciate you for attending concerts and making it all worthwhile. If youre dissatisfied, or if you have any suggestions on how we can improve, or if youd like us to try and arrange a small show to serve a particular group, we want to know. We are here to make this year as memorable and as exciting as possible. That means doing the best we can to involve all of you. We hope to hear from you. ' 7 see no reason why it has to be as high as they say its Four weeks ago, personally to I met with you discuss the publication of a short (two paragraphs) notice announcing a new weight-contrprogram my is department presenting for students of SUSC. When the notice did not appear, I was concerned as I wanted the students to have the whole quarter to complete the objectives set forth by our program. I was assured by telephone it would appear in the next issue. As the second issue appeared without our notice, I was getting steamed, to say the least. The excuse I got this time was that in moving to a new office, the press release was lost. I gave the reporter another copy and her apology and assurance that next week our accepted article would appear; she would take personal responsibility... However, it did not appear last week or this week. I have noticed with interest a push by The Thunderbird to print notices for departments for a price. They note that they do accept requisitions, and state in explanation that advertising pays the bills. personal The SUSC homecoming committee has received funds it had requested from the ASSUSC Senate. The homecoming bill will allocate up to a maximum of $700 as is needed for homecoming activities. The allocation, which was unanimously approved, will be used for the Miss SUSC Pageant, the homecoming, dance and to feed, members of the bands from all over the state who will perform in the homecoming parade. The bill to amend the ASSUSC Constitution proposing a change in office tenure was tabled. The proposal, which will redefine the office of attorney general, changing the name to social activities vice president, will be posted for another week. column for The Thunderbird. May I please know if you are paying usual publication rates? I, too, accept requisitions. Kay Messerly Editor's note: We are pleased that Messerly feels that The Thunderbird is so important that the success or failure of her workshop lies with us.

A bill to allocate funds to the senate elections committee to pay for the cost of the election of two freshman senators and an attorney general was unanimously amended to read as $100. The money will cover the costs of an informal buffet and printing costs of election materials. This is $50 less than the amount initially approved for the committee. Sen.

I see no reason why it has to be as high as they say its got to be, said Wade. The council as a whole seemed to be in agreement on the subject. Lynn Lowder, married student representative, brought up a concern of marrieds with children. The spouse card a special activity card for married students will admit spouses and their children into games and other events, but parents have to pay for their children to use the physical education facility during open recreation hours. Thayne Houston reported on Mens Week saying that overall the activities went well. He reported that about $300 was made on the Movie Marathon and a little over $500 was brought in from rhe Hat Dance. Houston said the funds came close to covering what was spent for the weeks activities. There were some problems at the Hat Dance. According to Houston students were letting their friends in the back doors without paying. Also there was theft reported. Three pairs of shoes were stolen and one was a pair of $70 boots, said Wade. Senate funds 83 Homecoming by Ethel Lyman Wants better coverage of programs Having been a member of a newspaper mans family for several years, I am well aware that advertising pays the bills. 1 also know that without circulation, advertising is worthless; and without news of importance to a community (in our case SUSC campus news), circulation will dwindle. I predict that will happen as departments are already discussing other ways to publicize their events, and we will miss The although Thunderbird as a means of getting word to the student body, there is not money in our budgets for advertising. The reporter (who would take got to be. for one quarter would be close to $500. Thats double of what Im paying, one council member interjected.
