Yob, tho quality of paper which we
havo used for tho past few days is
nothing to boast of. It is not tho
result of economizing nor of tho high
coBt of living, but rather of a short
age in tho quality of paper which wo

HOW SHALL WE VOTE?
Tho confusion which provalled In
tho rocont Junior eloctlon,' causing a
recount of votes, suggests tho advisa
bility of establishing a new system of
There aro about an equal nilmbor
of arguments for and against a change
In tho present system. Last yoar tho
class of 1912 appointed a committoo
to investigate tho matter, and sug
gest now plans, but ad Is so often tho
caso, tho committoo fallod to report.
It has often boon suggested, howovor,
that tho Australian system of ballot
ing lro adopted, as la now tho caso
with tho oloctlon of tho Athletic
Board. By a proper ubo of thiB sys
tem any chanco of padding tho voto
can bo eliminated, for tho standing
of each student can, by a previous
roforenco to tho records of tho regis
trar, bo definitely dotormlnod. As
tho student votes his namo 1b checked
off tho list and any chanco of repeti
tion is impossible.
This system rcquircB at least a half
a day, If properly conducted, for tho
voters cannot bo "rounded up" In load'
than that timo. It may also bo said
that If sufficient tlmo is taken, a
moro ropresontatlvo voto Ib secured
than und,or tho prosont system, for In
tho course of a few hours nearly every
member of a claBB can bo reached?
This offers moro opportunity for hard
work on. tho part of tho candidates
and ardent supporters, who can spend
a day electioneering.
But thoro aro sovoral arguments on
tho other side of Uio question. An
all-day oloctlon is never bo spirited
as qno In which tho voters aro assem
bled to choor tho introduction of tholr
favorito or hoot at tho appearance of
tho opponent. In fact, it 1b claimed
' by many that it Is noxt to impossible!
to creato any interest In an election
whoso result cannoj bo immediately
Such aro a fow of tho arguments
advancod for and gainst a change
in tho Bystom. Thoque8tlon is n llvo
ono and deserves consideration from
tho studont body, especially thOBO
