In an effort to help stem the spread of AIDS, vending machines dispensing condoms will be installed in restrooms for men and women in the Student Union at California State University, Northridge, the union's governing board has decided.
The 15-member board of student, faculty and administration representatives last week unanimously approved the plan, which had been proposed by a student committee.
The student union's board of directors also voted to distribute pamphlets about AIDS at the building's information desk and approved a study of the desirability of conducting an educational program on "safe sex."
"These are special times," said Dean of Students Edmund Peckham. "There are special needs and special answers. There is a need for the entire student body to be aware of AIDS."
