Just now, wo bollove, tho call for
some system of representative, demo
cratic HOlf-governinont 1b most urgent.
Tho Innocent society Is not, and very
probably never will bo, a body of men
to actually lead or govern tho student
body. In fact, It Is not intended to
be such an organization. And yet It
Is tho only body In tho University
which in any way approaches leader
ship and tho guidance of public opin
ion. To them fallB the position and
power of leadership, but to them can
never bo given the authority neces
sary for effective leadership; upon
them cannot bo placed responsibility
to tho studont body.
What Nobraska wants is responsi
ble, democratic self-government. Tho
students alono have the right to dele
gate to any group or society tho
power of guiding "the affairs of their
body. ThiB, to a socjlety elected as Is
tho Innocont society, is out of the
question. Today they are recognized
as loaders. Yet the choice of the men
who nro toform their body noxt-yenr
has met with widespread dissatisfac
tion among tho students. These men
are, ln( soveral instances at least, not
those whom tho students would have
Under -present conditions with this
society tho recognized leaders this is
palpably out of harmony with college

democracy. Tho society declares it
wishes nono of this recognized leader
ship, but tho fact remains, It has It.
Elthor It should rocognlzo the stu
dents which recognize it, or the stu
dents should refuse to recognize the
society, which refuses to rocognlzo its
body. Tho latter, wo bollovo, is the
only solution. Place in a body which
you creato tho power to act, tho right
of- leadership, the responsibility to
your own body, and you will Knlnrof--flclont,
Let tho Innocent society continuo in
its honorary capacity, but unite au
thority and responsibility, domocracy
and representative membership, In a
