Seal and Linsalata Against the Constitution
The editor of Dartmouth’s liberal student publication, the Free Press, and the editor of its conservative publication, the Review, oppose the Alumni Governance Task Force’s proposed constitution in chorus today, demonstrating that there truly is no room for partisan politics in these debates. In the pages of The Dartmouth, Andrew Seal and Dan Linsalata write: “We make no claims to having a better solution at the ready, or at least not one upon which we can agree. We do, however, know that the AGTF’s proposal is not the right solution. We implore you, for the sake of all current and future Dartmouth undergraduates — the focus of the College, now as it has been for centuries — to vote against the proposed constitution this coming fall. A better way will come along, and it is worth waiting for. That much we can agree on.”
Also today, Grant Bosse ‘94, writing from the District of Columbia, says that the dirty tricks have gone too far. Beth Krakower ‘93 says that the constitution should be ratified because “It is especially important to let your voice be heard.”
Yesterday, The Dartmouth’s Rebekah Rombom reported: “Association of Alumni halts imminent elections.”

We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
