He outlined the wedding dance: “All that is symbolized in this number includes the asking of a girl's hand by a boy, the acceptance of the proposal by a girl and the merriment that follows in the singing and dancing. The dance outlines the work of both the boy's and girl's families in finding If the other family is suitable to marry into, Iboko said. Following final checking, the engagement is announced and lasts from orv» to seven year* before the marriage ceremony finally culminates the courting. “Extreme rejoicing and celebration are expressed In the wedding danos," Iboko stated.

Theme of the meeting will be “The Role of International Law in National Courts and Agencies: Fifty Years of Development.” A group of prominent speakers are scheduled to address the group at this meeting. Leonard Meeker, State Department legal advisor, will discuss “The Law of Nations in the National Government.” Meeker is a graduate of Harvard Law School, where he was a classmate of William P. Gray, president of the Los Angeles Bar Association. The international law aspects of an*i-trust legislation as it affects the conduct of business in foreign countries will be discussed by Wolfgang Friedman, professor of law at Columbia University. Friedman is director of international legal research at Columbia. He was formerly with the political intelligence department of the foreign office in London, SHEAF, and the British Control Commission for Germany. He has degrees from universities in London, Berlin, and Melbourne, and has taught in law schools at universities in numerous countries.

ASSC Secretary Sue COrwiu read the request from the DGs, saying they believed in Miss Jameson's "high ideals” and her statement that an office as important as ASSC vice president should not go uncontestcd. The Chimes president made known her intention to run for the office independent of any party backing Monday, after losing the TRG-party endorsement to Miss Laird several w'jeks ago. Resignation Accepted At the conclusion of the emo-tion-packed meeting of TRG hierarchy, the executive committee voted 25 to 2 to recommend to the party's General Assembly to “accept the resignation with regrets.” Until the acceptance, Delta Gamma is still a member of the party. Senator-j\t-Large Dave Ger-shenson said, “Vi sincerely b?-lieves in her ideals and Is not running just to add another office to her lioi!sé7'r Even Miss Laird cited the DG* as "a backbone of TRG.” Discussion arose about whether the party could not support both candidates in the election, thus keeping DG in the fold. The TRG constitution has no provision saying that a house Croup Pledges Full Support in ASSC Election Twenty-five Independents, headed by Debate Captain Murray Bring, have formed the Independents for Taylor, a political action group whose primary Interest is in getting Greg Taylor elected in the forthcoming ASSC elections.

Constitutional question Party Chairman Joe Cerrell In I reading the constitution »aid a I group or organization could only I b? asked to resign for "disloyalty to the party.” Gershenson said that If the ] party would allow the DGs to remain in the party and still keep Miss Jameson on the ballot, it would set a precedent for member houses to run candidates without party endorsement. “The beginning of the end for TRG,” was the phrase Gershenson used in emphasizing that DGs must resign. “A TRG nomination will mean absolutely nothing If we allow DGs to remain In the party and still nominate t!»?lr own candidates," Senior Class President Steve Robertson said. "If It remains in, the party people will think any house can run anyone it wants, regardless of party doctrine." Afiotb?r question the withdrawal will bring up is whether TRG will continue to hack two other Delta Gammas candidates —Joan Sparling for srnator-at-large and Jeanne Casendyke for junior else* vice president. Up to Party Robertson said he felt Ihe party want» to still support the other DG candidates, but said the final say was up to the General Assembly of TRG. Robertson opened the executive meeting with a talk on party unity. “Last yjar's campaign created party unity, because no houses plotted against each other.” "Losers have a tendency to scream politic* and dirty play,’ ning and implementing Taylor's campaign and strategy.

Rush, Robert Munn, Donald C. Ferguson, and John A. Jensen will join more than 50 SC graduates who have entered the Foreign Service Officer Corps since World War T. The State Department has an Rrlng Dlaclaltm Charge* Bring, Blue Key president and former senator-at-large, has disclaimed the charges that Taylor has sold out hi* fellow independents. "Contrary to the myth Carl Terzian supporters are trying to perpetrate upon the independents, Taylor did not sell out the independents when he joined TRG. He,is the only independent candidate in the ASSC presidency race and the man most deserving of our support,” Bring said. In addition to Bring, other member* of the Independents for Taylor are Lauretta Misraje, Don Masuda, aqd Morris Meadow, who are serving a* vice chairman, executive director, and campaign manager for the group.
