LC evaluates COl'lStltUtlOl13l revisio
Thom Altman, Political Writer
The Eckerd College Organlzatlon
of Students CECOSD, as we know it,
was formed back ln the school year
1980-Bl. ECOS was almost 520,000
ln debt. So, the Student Admini-
stration, at that time, felt it
was necessary to restructure the
budget by producing a new Consti-
tution ln order to reduce the
Their new Constitution also
ellmlnated two officers from the
Executive Council: the Director
of External Affalrs and the Human
Though thls Constltutlon served
its purpose ln reducing the defl-
clt, lately there have been com-
plaints concerning the wording of
many of the articles.
According to past-president
Andy Haines and current ECOS vlce-
presldent Cand president-elect for
next year's ECOS? Wayne Harwell,
the sections deallng with the role
of the Executive Council, the role
of the Dean of Students and the
veto power of the president are
Chris Roby, also a newly-
elected ECOS officer for next
year, agrees, and is worklng on a
newer, more comprehensive version
of our Constitution.
The major problem with the
current Constitution seems to be
the document ltself. The impre-
clse wording of many of the
articles and long lists of bylaws
make it dltflcult to interpret.
Though the re-wording of state-
ments ln the Constitution ls the
maln thrust of this group of
leaders, there are also changes ln
the structure of ECOS which will
be submitted to the Legislative
Councll for ratificatlom
The proposed changes Include:
t a change ln the date of
f specification of
the role of the Finance
t the addition of Election
and Media Commlttee Direct-
ors to the Executive Councll
t the appointing of someone
to maintain an
archives for future reference
t appointing the
Commlttee the rlght to decide
4 the separation of student
programming and student
government by removing the
Student Actlvltles Board from
the Executive Council
The change of electlon date has
met with little lf any opposltlom
Most agree that the extra tlme ln
office for newly elected offlclals
would be beneficial for the
organization. They could learn
the responsibilities of their
position earller ln the academic
The second proposal is more of
a clarlflcatlon than a change. ln
the past there has been some
question to whether the Finance
Director or the Finance Director-
elect has the responslbillty of
drawlng up the budget for the
This would make
the budget proposal a joint
effort, lf ratified
The proposed Election and Media
Committees Directors as Executive
Council members would delegate
responsiblity for running elec-
tlons and regulating campus media.
The current Constitution doesn't
provide for these needs, and there
has been some difficulty ln
deciding who ln ECOS, if anyone,
should head these actlvitles.
The new Constitution would
designate the ECOS vlce-president
as the keeper of the archives
This would ensure the safe-keeping
of club charters and other
documents of lmportance, which ln
the past have had a tendency to be
misplaced. At present, there ls
no record of the actlvltles and
decisions made by previous ECOS
The major change ln the
Constitution would be the removing
of the Student Activities Board
CSABD from the Executive Council.
This is met with strong opposi-
tlon by past-president Andy
Halnes revealed, "6OZ of the
money allocated for student actlv-
ltles goes to the SABN He
claims, Uthls money must be kept
ln student control.n
But Harwell, Roby and Campus
Actlvltles Director Barry McDowell
feel ECOS ls getting too Involved
ln student programming and ls
tal llng short of their pledge to
urepresent the interests of the
student body, promote campus
unity, and lobby on behalf of
student Interests on and off
Granted, the SAB ls a councll
under ECOS headed by the Dlrector
of Student Activities, but that ls
not the sole purpose of ECOS.
Roby points to the problem of the
late dlstrlbutlon of fall semester
flnal grades. NThat's the klnd of
thing ECOS should be concerned
Haines feels the reason SAB
duties have fallen on the
Executive Council in general is
because we have yet to have a
Nvery dedicatedu Director of
Student Activities. He has a lot
of faith in the system, and
insists it can work Wwith the
lf implemented, the change
would free ECOS of any obllgatlons
to the SAB. The Student Actlvl-
tles Board would be an independent
organization, thereby permlttlng
ECOS to attend to other responsi-
lt wlll be up to the Legisla-
tive Council to decide lf this
alteration ln the structure of our
student government ls Justlfled.
Students are urged to plck up a
copy of the current Constitution
at the ECOS office, and are ln-
vlted to make Inquiries and voice
opinions to ECOS members
