Transcript SA Institutes Extensive Programs, Withstands Political Chaos of Year Three extensive new programs, three UH "firsts" and several political controversies have kept students' attention focused on their Student Association. The Student Course and Teacher Evaluation administered questionnaires to J6,000 students, allowing them to evaluate their courses and professors. TAC, Tutorial Assistant Center, worked with elementary children from underprivileged areas, tutoring them in English, mathematics and other subjects. Moving from a separate organization to an extension of SA, the Experimental College expanded its ideas to cover Oriental philosophy, religion, socialism and objectivism. Among the important firsts for SA were Cougar Exposure, a public relations venture that sought to sell UH to high school prospectives; the Houston Council of College Student Discount Program that offered food, apartments and clothes discounts to card holders; and gripe boxes which were distributed at points around the campus, allowing students to comment on any facet of university life. As the governing body for the university, SA sought to continue and to develop beneficial programs through its three branches: executive, legislative and judicial. The executive department saw the need for student-administration communication with its emphasis on SCATE, TAC and Cougar Exposure. Controversy marked the executive office when Vice-president Richard Hancock was removed because he failed to meet grade requirements. John Mortola places a "Go Greek" sticker on a South Houston high school student during the Cougar Exposure Weekend, left. Larry Edmonson and Richard Hancock joke with President Johnson during their summer trip to the NSA Conference, above. WL 349
