While The Tech did an excellent job of reporting on the last UA meeting of the year ["UA Council Rejects New Constitution," May 9], I would like to make two very quick points. First, there were actually two amendments to the current consitution that were passed. The two amendments decreased the size of next year's UA Council and increased the membership of UA Judicial Reveiw Board to five members from three. As the sole member of Judboard for the entire past year, I applaud UA President Vijay P. Sankaran '95 for appointing five members to next year's Judboard and I would like to applaud the UA Council for passing this amendment.

Second, contrary to last Tuesday's editorial ["UA Constitutional Debate Is New Low," May 9], "non-student Jason Solinsky" spoke strongly against the adoption of the new constitution for the reasons delineated in that editorial. As the only author of the new constitution who objected to the haste of the constitution-changing process, perhaps the editorial should not have singled out Jason for criticism.
