By Don Mueller

Picking up the sirlnga unraveled at Wednesday's regular meeting, the Student Senate approved a measure last night requesting the Dally Egyptian to initiate a "Black Students' Column, " The Senate also added by-law amendments concerning Student Governmcnt Office behavior and the formation of political
panics.
In other action, the Senate:
1. Defeated a proposal which would have called for a runoff election to be hold in the event, as in the recent election, no executive candidate received a majority of the popular vote cast.
2. Defeated a proposal calling for condemnation of tlie action of the Board of Trustees for unilaterally raising activity fees by $10 a quarter rather tiian by the $3.50 recommonded by the Senate.
3. Approved tho editor and staff appointments for Ka for the coming year.
4. Sent a bill on clarification of issues regarding Senate stands on the administration's action not to extend an invitation to Stokely Carmicahel to speak and on urging the federal government to make "extensive medical
investigations of the affects of marijuana."
5. Passed a resolution calling for Student Body President Ray Lenzl to deliver a "State of the Campus Address."
M. Chuck Markham, a two-year Army veteran and youth worker, was approved as rep- resentative of the Senate to write the column in the Egyptian.
Buzz Spector was approved for appointment of Ka editor with Paul Wheeler, editor of content, and Jerry Finney, managing editor. Carl Courtnier and Gary Krischer were appointed staff aaslstante.
The by-law for formation of political parties states that parties may form "any time except four weeks prior to election." It also aays that if a party does not appear as a "recognized student group in three consecutive Student Government elections, the party shall have It's recognition revoked."
The by-law amendment on government office behavior set guidelines for hiring office workers as appointed by the Student Body Vice President and approved by and with the consent of the Senate.
The meeting Thursday was called to continue unfinished business of Wednesday's Senate session which adjourned sliortly after midnight.
