Cliffies Added to HPC; HUC to Aid Overseers

The University's two undergraduate overning bodies moved this week to large the scope their activities. The Harvard Policy Committee has invited Radcliffe to sent two representatives its meetings, and the Harvard Undergraduate Council is planning to colbrate with the Visiting Committee to the College in its annual investigation. Michael E. Abram '66, chairman of the HPC, said yesterday that the Committee had voted unanimously to ask O. Elliott, Dean of Radcliffe college, to appoint two undergraduates to sit in on HPC meetings and contribute the "Radcliffe point of view." They will not be able to vote unless the HPC constitution is amended. Abram said this change will probably be made soon.

Radcliffe ought to have a voice on the Committee, Abram said, because the HPC studies questions of educational policy which "often concern both Radcliffe and Harvard students. Mrs. Elliott's office has not yet made the appointments.

The HUC plans to present the "student's viewpoint" to next year's visiting Committee if such a report is appropriate to the topic, Daniel C. Goldfarb '66, chairman of the HUC, said yesterday. The Board of Overseers will meet in May to choose a topic for study, and the HUC will then decide whether to submit its own report, Goldfarb said.

The Board organizes a Visiting Committee each year to investigate a problem in the College. "The Committee's communication with students has usually been limited to a luncheon," Goldfarb said. The HUC would supply a more "complete and comprehensive" summary of undergraduate opinion. The collaboration, to be coordinated by Dean Munro, has been accepted by the Overseers.
