WHOSE MOVE NEXT?
Nov. 3, 1909.
Editor NobraBkan: In an oditorlal in
tho NobraBkan thlB morning the stand
was taken that thoso who started tho
motion In tho sophomore class to elect
chairmen Instead of to appoint thorn
were doing so from personal dislikes
and prejudices. In brief, those aro tho
reasons advanced to sustain this atti
tude on his part:
I. "It cannot but appear on the stir
faco that personal projudico was back
of tho movement."
II. The change should havo been
made effective at tho beginning of tho
noxt semester, bocauso
1. By acting thus thoy'would avoid
all accusation of porsonal animus.
2. If their desire woro to securo n
hotter class spirit. It could much bettor
have beon, attended by avoiding all
chanco of porsonal friction.
II1 Thq proposal Hoe'ms unjust to
President Powers, bocadso
1. It was taking away from him a
right which bo understood at tho time
of his olectlon to belong to his offlco.
2. President Powors had already told
some members that ho would appoint
Wo bollevo that this attitude Is un
fair to thoso sustaining the motion,
for first, tho arguments are based on
personal views as to tho motives of
those making this motion, and second
ly, the argument is based on certain
Judgments as to the ndvlsnbllity of
such a motion. It seems permlssablo
to argue against tho motion, but to us
unfair that arguments against the mo
tion should appear in connection with
an attack on the intentions of thoBO
making tho motion, and prejudicing
readers against the makers.
In making this motion I distinctly
execludcd all commlttco chairmen
whoso appointments had already been
announced, (inserting that I had no
doubt as to the wisdom and falrnoso
of any appointments Mr. Powers might
make; but I believed, as I still do.
that if the class had a direct voice in
the selection of the various chairmen
they would take more interest In tho
class meetings, and would feel a moro
direct personal Interest nnd responsi
bility in nil class affairs. Is It right
then that any one, because he or she'
believes my method to arouse class
and echool spirit incorrect In theory,
should thoreforo -with no more evi
dence than that assert, "It cannot, but
appear on the surfaco that pergonal
prejudice was back of the movement"?
Then the editorial states that tho
writor believes that since in his Judg
ment tho motion Bhould have been
made to take effect noxt somoator.
that therefore thoso backing the mo
tion wore doing bo because of personal
prejudice. Is this a fair argument?
Since we backing the motion amended
It so that It only applied to this semes
tor because the president said ho had
a constitutions committee to look after
tliis for future semesters?
But, says the editorial. "If their de
slro wero to secure a bettor class
spirit, it could much better have been
attended by avoiding all chance ,of
friction." Another error in Judgment,
thereforo they must have been actu
ated by personal dislikes and preju
dices. We will say .that it was far
from our thoughts that this "friction"
(personal friction, I should say) would
be aroused by this motion. In making
the motion wo took pains to avoid all
personal application and in making
amendments we paid every attention
to tho wish of tho president in that,
first, "thoso chairmen, etc., whoso .ap
pointments have already been an
nounced' were excluded, and, second,
that we loft consideration as to future
semesters to the president's constitu
tion committee. We would not have
been surprised had the president said
ho was opposed to this motion because
he thought it not advisable and not to
the class interests; but we were aston
ished' when he asked his friends "per
sonally" to vote my motion down for
two reasons, namely:
1. That when he was elected he un-
derstood It was his right and one of
the benefits of his office that he should
appoint chairmen. ''
2. He had. already told several men
he would appoint them.
porsonal element' injected'llnto Ihe
matter and I answered that this was
not a personal '.attack upon tho presi
dent and that I would gladly havo
brought this motion up boforo Mr.
Powors olectlon, but lacked tho op
portunity of doing so becauso of tho
ordor of business and lateness of tho
meeting. Also, I did not consider tho
prosldont shorn of much power as ho
still had tho opportunity of appointing
tho other members (asTdo from chair
men) of tho committoos. To tho soc
ond objection wo urgod that wo could
support Mr. Powors "personally" lator
on by oloctlng tho mon to whom ho
had promised appointments; but as
this was a mattor of prlnclplo those
who thought it to tho host lntorost of
tho class that ovoryono should havo
a volco in thoso selections, should Blfp
port our motion, and thoso who
thought It detrimental to class spirit
should oppoHo It,
Now, It surprises mo that it Is ar
guod that tho motion was not for the
host of tho school spirit becauso it al
lowed a porBonnl elomont to bo Inject
od Into tho discussion, a porsonal elo
mont entlroly unoxpoctod to thoso
backing tho motion.
Now, what would tho editor have
us do? Ho says to soo this adopted
for noxt BomoBtor. Yot wo havo
amonded tho motion already bo as to
leavo out succeeding semesters nnd
havo done tills at President Powors'
porsonal dcBlro becauso ho had ap
pointed a constitutions commlttco to
look nftor that. If our motion woro
a good ono, to arouso a bottor spirit
by giving ovorybody somo part in class
activitlos, why should it not havo gono
Into effect this semester, oxcludlng as
It did all thoso whoso appointments
had already, boon announced? If tho
president doslrod tho class to tako
moro Interest In class affairs, unless
ho had a Arm belief that this motion
would not produco tho desired result,
why Bhould ho objoct whon it was so
framed as not to humillato him, but
to tako cognizanco of thoso appoint
ments alroady mado public?
But now, whothor tho meeting wnB
or was not adjourned, tho president
has announced all his chairmen. How
can we proceed without bolng porsonnl
as wo havo no dosiro to bo without
usurping tho powers of his constitu
tions commlttco or without question
ing his right to nnnounco tho appoint
ments slnco Tuesday.
I ask tho editor, "Whoso move noxt?"
and "What's tho move?"
