    faculty meetngIn

       The faculty will meet today to discuss two proposals from
     the Committee on Educational Policy to relieve overcrowding
    in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sci-
    ence. Faculty members will likely implement one of the propos-
    als: either requiring students to apply to Course VI at the end
    of their freshman year, as the committee recommended, or re-
    quiring high school seniors to specify whether they want to be
    eligible for Course VI. The non-Course VI -applicant pool
    would ostensibly be an easier admission.
       Either course of action will bear heavily on the future of the
    Institute. Both would set dangerous precedents, even though
    they supposedly would be in force for only a short time.
       Faculty members should make every effort to attend this
    meeting and give the issue the great consideration it deserves.
    Students should likewise attend, though they do not have
    speaking privileges, to demostrate both their interest and the                                                                      01983 Copley News Xteo

  Dackiw said. "There is no real vi-

 light and more obvious activity,
 he said, and he would add an
 atrium and remove the central

which extends from the Athletic
Center through the Infinite Cor-
ridor and to the new Arts and
Media Technology Building, is
very important, Dackiw said at
the end of the presentation. The
axis is, however, now "confused"
by the raised area in front of the
Student Center.
   Any changes made to the front
of the building must take account
of the activity that often goes on
there, he said.

-very exciting" in a brief ques-
tion and comment session which
followed. "It's about time we did
something like this.'
    Immerman told the committee
members that when making actu-
al plans, they should consider fi-
nancial constraints and have any
renovations made in stages.
    Mein said such an approach
would be possible, since the ideas
would allow the continued func-
tioning of the Student Center
during renovations.

             men's volleyball team took fourth
             place in the NCAA Division II1
             Tournament here last weekend.
                The squad dropped its semi-
            final match 15-1, 15-7, 16-18, 15-
            4, to the tournament's top seed,
            the University of California at
            San Diego (UCSD), and lost the
            third place match against the

           Verne in the semifinals, 3-1, and
           went on to upset UCSD in the
           finals. 3- 1.
              The first semifinal match pitted
           MIT verses the UCSD Tritons.
           The Tritons, all but one of whom
           were Californians, have been
           ranked first all season in the
           NCAA Division III coaches' poll
           and have made both finals in the
          tournament's two-year history.
