On the front row are Herb Underwood, Bill Hensley, Amelie Suberbielle, John Perdue and Walt Brochle. The second row includes James Gaston, Ron Rivenbark, Albert Contreras, Jim S. Gee and Jerry Skinner. On the back row are Ody Jerden, John Kiser, Reynold Hillegeist, Sonny Moore, Bill Lipscomb and Ben Hood. Representatives from each recognized organization on campus compose the student government House of Representatives. At bi-weekly Monday night meetings, the House processes bills and motions brought before them, including all bills for raising revenue. As the lower group in the student government organization, the House is the point of origin for most of the legislation that is brought before student government. The House also holds sole power of impeachment. All House officers, excluding the speaker, are chosen from within its members. This includes speaker pro tern, secretary, clerk and parliamentarian. Any recognized campus organization may have representation in the House. If the organization's membership exceeds 20, it is entitled to an additional representative. A REGULAR MEETING of the House of Representatives finds members busy deciding on bills and motions. A new bill seems to meet with the approval of these representatives. On the front row are Tommie Holub, Sue Friedman, Brenda Busch, Nancy Coffman and Wanda Kay Barber. The second row consists of Ted Lafferty, John Paul Jones, Mike Weingart, Marc Grossberg, Helen Sue Reed and Carolyn Langford. On the back row are John Bankston, Bob Baylor, Jack O. Wesne, Richard Bowman and Wallace Howard. OFFICERS Carolyn Langford, clerk; Dan Hrna, pari.,- Marilyn Holub, sec.; Jim Boyd, speaker and Carmen Stallings, speaker pro tern. Supreme Court THEY INTERPRET SG REGULATIONS A Chief Justice and five other justices compose the student Supreme Court, in which is vested the judicial power of the student government of the University of Houston Duties of the Supreme Court include interpreting and clarifying student government regulations, rendering advisory opinions and making decisions in all cases involving interpretation of the student statutes. KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW is an important requirement for members of the Supreme Court. Every corner of the law library seems familiar to Chief Justice Jim Knox, a UH law student. LOOKING SOLEMN and stern, Supreme Court Justices prepare to render a decision concerning a student government regulation. Pictured are Justices Emerson Turner, James Williams, Clay Moore, Chief Justice Jim Knox, Jack Gregory and Bill Hensley. CHIEF PROSECUTOR for the student government is attorney general Barlow Simmons, whose duties include checking on organizational standards. 290 29J
