Board, Hays said he doesn’t think that will be accomplished. “It’s not realistic to expect a voting seat,” he said, “but we desire student input or, at least, student presence to be aware of their actions.” If created, the committee will con sist of the student body president, the speaker of the Senate, the speaker pro tempore, two members of the Legislative Study Group and two other senators. The bill, if passed, will create the third committee the Senate has formed this semester and will dis solve one created last month to re search the same issue. Besides forming two committees, the Senate has not taken any other legislative action this semester.

Student Body President Mason Hogan said he is satisfied with the Senate’s accomplishments so far, but he acknowledged that there has'n’t been much input from senators. “Everything is not peachy keen right now, but it takes a little time (for a Senate to get going),” he said. Hogan said he expects senators to become more involved and make some legislative proposals once they get to know each other and get the feel of how the Senate works. He said a major reason that only two bills have been passed this semester is because many senators don’t know how to draft one. Nine newly elected freshman sen ators and eight students appointed to fill vacant positions were sworn into office Wednesday and the Sen ate approved six members to the Student Government Judicial Board.

Cannaday of the Dallas Police De- 'here theyW 111 irtment, who is leading crowd control and security preparations for the annual bash, said officers will issue cptions to drivers they see drinking. J “It’ll be just like a traffic citation,” Cannaday said of [the law, which made drinking and driving a Class C ! n)isdemeanor. Pedestrians, however, will be permitted to drink and 1ICA AM walk, so long as they do so in the right direction, with the proper frame of mind and without stopping. Everyone in the rally “parade” must walk in the same counterclockwise direction, and dawdlers will be en couraged to move along by the 450 police and reserve officers who will be on duty downtown, Cannaday said. Foot traffic will move west on the north side of desig nated streets and east on the south side, he said. The “moving sidewalk,” as the continuous-motion plan has been dubbed, was created by police several years ago to reduce confrontations among celebrants.
