Goines: "Executive Committee: “Ex Com.” Large group composed of representatives of all campus organizations. The Executive Committee formed general policy and elected the FSM Steering Committee. On October 5, consisted of two representatives from each of the eighteen United Front organizations. Expanded on Thursday, October 8 to include seven representatives of the newly-formed Independent Student Association and in the week of October 11 to include seven representatives from the newly-formed gcc. Campus religious groups received representation as did the eighty students who worked to put out the Rossman Report. By the middle of October, the FSM Executive Committee consisted of 56 members."
Goines: Steering Committee: "Small group elected by the FSM Executive Committee to make rapid decisions on a day-to-day basis."

|Goines: "Shorter-run leaflets and other mimeographed communications were run off at all hours at Press Central, located in Tom Irwin’s basement on Milvia. Since it was part of a house, to avoid disturbing the residents we ordinarily entered and left through the basement windows."|
|Goines: "The only one that ran well, aside from Central Central (as it was called at one point), was Legal Central, which kept track of all the defendants after the arrests of December 3. David Stein was in charge of it for two and a half years, and it’s the only one that ran as well as it could have, with almost no hang-ups or personality difficulties."
"David Stein kept the defendants’ list  up to date for two-and-a-half years, until all the fines had been paid, all the probations completed and all the jail terms served, and then that was the end of it."
"I remember a particular night in Correspondence Central,
writing a response to a message from students at the Sorbonne (French dictionary in hand),
while across the table Jane Gurko was wondering what salutation to use for Lord Bertrand Russell."
