It's time the Student Council rectified an
error. On Nov. 12 of last year that body passed
a motion requiring all candidates for positions
on the Council to appear before the organiza
tion with a written platform stating his or her
intentions with regard to the Council if
On Jan. 4, the Daily Nebraskan carried
an editorial proving quite conclusively that
the Student Council had overstepped its
bounds of authority. The action taken by the
Council was in direct contradiction to the con
stitution of that body.
"In the first place (quoting from the edi
torial of Jan. H) before any change in the
elections rules may be made, such revision
must be passed by a two-thirds majority of
the Council and accepted by at least SI per
cent of the student body at any regular or
special election providing notice of this revi
sion is published in the Daily Nebraskan at
least tin days prior to the election. Thus, if the
Council wants to pass judgment on the qual-
By Marsa Lee Civin.
A letter from Camp Funston, Kansas, fol
lows: "When spirits run high or when noise and
enthusiasm are at their height no single call
will start such a response as anything that
harkens back to UN.
"The occasional copy of the Nebraskan
that sifts out of the mails into the Nebraska
men's barracks has more readers than any
other one paper. The whole regiment is from
the state and in every company there are rep
resentatives of the university."
Dean Stout pointed out the demand for
technically trained men has been greatly in
creased by the war. Military men need engi
neering training. In agriculture, transporta
tion, and distribution as well as military work
this training is of great importance.
That the teaching profession was not pro
tected by law as were most vocations was
pointed out by Dean Fordyce. "Farms, shops
are better fortified than schools are. Men are
not drafted from these, but strong men of
school are all subject to the draft, and we dare
not neglect our school. England has made a
fatal mistake there."
ifications of the students filing for positions
on the Council, it must submit the amendment
for student approbation to a special election
some time prior to the regular spring election.
. . . And if the members of the Student Coun
cil will also read Article IX, Section V of the
constitution they will find this statement:
"Nothing in this constitution shall be so con
strued as to deprive any student of the right
to file as an independent candidate."
The annual spring election will have to bo
held much earlier this year due to the short
ening of the second semester. The election will
probably be held around the middle of April.
The Council has met several times at weekly
meetings without so much as discussing valid
ity or non-validity of its action with regard to
electing Council successors, which was brought
to its attention by the Daily Nebraskan. A spe
cial election will have to be held in addition
to the regular spring election, so it's about
time the Council rectified the error of Nov. 12.

... for industrial research !
In these critical times engim'tr at Western
Electric are at work harJer than ever develop
ing advances in the art of manufacture.
The&e are being oiijilied in producing the
latest types of military communications equip
mentnow being turned out on i large scale for
our fighting forces on land, at sea and in the air.
All this is in addition to our greatly increased
job as manufacturer, purchaser and distributor
for the Bell System. Meeting the abnormal
telephone needs of America at war is tremen
dous task, complicated by shortages of many
materials. Even record-breaking production
cannot fill all civilian requirements now, for
Uncle Sam comes first!
