Year 1 (9/68–5/69), Part 1
Before the first edition of the UH News was delivered to the Gengras Information desk; Ben and Jack were forging agreements and defining their work relationship among themselves and with the Administration. First: Ben made an agreement with Hector Prud'homme, Vice Chancellor that gave the SFA(Student Facutly Association)- soon to be renamed SA(Student Association) autonomy with the provision that they maintain a budget.. This was directly connected to the Paper which the SFA(SA) published and Ben, as President was the Head Publisher. Ben gave Jack his support to “print anything”. So the table was set for what would probably leave Ben to a certain degree; but most definitely the Administration regretting what had been wrought.
