The junior class Is the most demo
cratic organization In the university,
peaking from a purely partisan
standpoint, the third year men show
more love for Sir. Bryan than do even
the democratic legislators now hold
ing forth In the state capltol. The
legislators recently rejected Mr. Bry
' nn's inltlatlvo and referendum project.
They threw It on the scrap heap with
ah unseoraly Jar. The Juniors of tho
university have promptly picked It up
;and tho referendum lsembodled In the
new class constitution as adopted yes
Nor Is It an April Fool Jolco. Noth
ing of tho kind. The referendum Is
right there ready for business and
the Junior class officers are warned
bV Its presenpe In the sacred docu
ment to go carefully If they don't
Want to get into trouble. The ar
ticle concerning the "referendum the
ory is very specific. It clearly states
that whenever twenty-five per cent
of the members of the class shall
sign the necessary petition tho presi
dent is bound to call a meeting for
the consideration of any action which
may have been taken by Its .officers
or for tho projection of any new plans
desired by tho 25 per cent.
Offers a Check.
The class officers can go head as
before and can represent tho class
by divers and sundry acts and doeds,
But If 25 per cent of tho third year
men think that anything tho class
dignitaries have done should bo sub
mitted to the class for consideration,
the refeVendum proposition "In tho con
stitution compels tho president to do
It, whether or not ho wishes to.
Nor is this all. Tho Juniors are
democratic to the very core and they
Intend to follow true democratic prin
ciples. They realize tho danger of
one-man power and they' mean that
tho PEOPLE the P-E-O-P-L-E shall
, rule. Accordingly they havp taken
from the president tho time-honored
' power of appointing an Ivy day orator
and have made that office' an olectlvo
one t,o be filled. byVoto of tho class.
A third t nrovlBlon oxnroBslv prohibits
grafting'! of hop chairmen and commit
teemen. It declares that tho commit
teemen and tho master, of coremonles
of -dances shall .have but ono compll
'imentary ticket each and that ithoso
tln charge ,of other 'affairs, only two
v' tickets "apiece. , "Graft, 'crushed to
inearth, will rise again," bu,t not in the
