A nme-point program released by tlie cabinet has as its general theme the coordination of academic and social activities and security of a voice in the ASSC Senate. The program outlined plans to promote closer cooperation of student groups; develop tutoring, advisement. and exchange services; and to coordinate individual group activities to provide a free exchange of information between them. Wheels are in motion to start a petition for recognition of the group as a unified organization and to request voting status in the ASSC Senate. Also a committee will soon ; be formed to invite a faculty mem- ! ber to sponsor the cabinet. Presidents of 10 campus groups ! were present at the meeting and assisted in drawing up the tentative plan. The groups represented were Aeneas hall, Casa de Rosas, Council on Atomic Implications. I Chinese students. Intercultural 1 club. La Tertulia. Le Cercle Fran- I caos. Moslem students. Trovets. and 1 the Hawaiian club. Seniors Begin Drive to Save Canceled Prom A drive by senior students to get their canceled prom revived got underway Friday ar-ternoon. Subscription pledge forms were drawn up to be circulated among seniors and presented to the proper authorities with the hope that the prom may be held again this year. A copy of the form appears below. DATE CHOSEN It is Dlanr.ed to hold the dance the night of June 11, after commencement exercises, if enough student body support is forthcoming. The date was chosen in or.ler to avoid conflict with other social af-iairs which had made the success of the dance, originally scheduled for May 7, a question mark. It is apparent, spokesmen said, that support by independent students must, be raised it the dance is to go on at all. Organizations and clubs all over the campus will be contacted this week in an effort to gain independent backing. There was hope at a late hour Friday that the Interfratemity council would underwrite costs of the prom. The IFC was approached as being the only group sufficiently close-knit and commanding .the necessary funds. CLIP THE FORM Whitey Fruhling, IFC president, said his group would support a student-arranged prom if enough seniors shewed interest in it by cupping out the form, filling it out. c fl 11 f o r n i fl # Vol XL 72 Los Angeles, Calif., Monday, April 25, 1949 No. 125 I w?ll support the forthcoming Senior Prom, scheduled for June 11.

IFC support would depend on. the number of pledges returned, he said.
