THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2D, 1912 AN EXPLANATION. 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 usually ubo. Tho present condition of affairs will continue only until tho exhausted sup ply can bo replenished. 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 voting. 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 dotormlnod, 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 politically inclined. INITIATION WEEK. Will someono please elucldato? I really want to know.
