Faculty Group to Decide Fate
Of New Council Constitution
Limited Time for Approval
Makes Spring Vote Unlikely
The interim Student Council set up last fall to re
vise the election and representation provisions of the
Council constitution has completed its task.
Last Wednesday, the Council put a stamp of approval
on the revised constitution. It will now go to the Facultv
commute vl1 -'luut:1i' wiKdiiia
tions, which win examine the
new document.
Headed by H. P. Davis, the
committee plans to hold weekly
meetings to examine each sec
tion of the constitution word by
word. It is reported that stu
dents will be called before the
committee to give varying views
on the revised sections. Faculty
members of the committee in ad
dition to Davis are: Miss Mary
Mielenz and Dr. Curtis Elliot,
Student Council sponsors; H. A.
Smith, and Emanuel Wishnow.
Sprint Election
In view of the faculty plan,
and considering the fact that
only two and one half weeks
remain in the semester, it seems
likely that the new constitution
will not be approved in time for
an election to be held this
spring. Some faculty members
have expressed doubt about the
constitution being approved in
its present form. This, plus the
opposition within the present
Council to the revised plan,
points to the possibility of an
other interim council, which will
probably be chosen in the same
manner as the present Council.
Within the Council, there has
been disagreement over the in
clusion of the representatives of
committees. Last week, article 4,
section 1 of the revised plan
passed by a bare two-thirds ma
jority the minimum by which
an amendment could be passed.
Committee System
The committees would provide
for one representative from each
of four groups. These groups
would serve as coordinating
bodies between the different
campus organizations. One of
the primary objections to the
plan has been that it would take
away functions of existing com
mittees, and set up an even more
complicated system of govern
ing that now exists. For exam
ple, the student spirit committee
would take over the function of
the rally committee; the religious
welfare committee the duties of
the religious welfare council.
Last fall, when council mem
bers met for the first time, they
were told that their function was
to "evolve a new plan for Coun
cil election and representation."
Not until Feb. 9, however, did
the Council begin consideration
of the revision. After two and
one-half months of deliberation,
the Council came up with a con
stitution which would provide
1. Political parties.
2. Representation through;
colleges for 17 representatives.
3. Two sophomore members
at large.
4. Six holdover members
from the old council.
5. Four representatives from
committees student spirit,
campus improvements, reli
gious welfare, and orientation
and activities. The committees
would be made up of camp1"'
organizations particularly iv
terested in the specific com
mittees. 6. Election campaigns, to be
regulated according to rules
set up by. the Council.
7. A Hare system of repre
sentation. Differences
The revised constitution differs
only slightly from the former
constitution. One of the main
differences is that in the repre
sentation from colleges, there is
no guarantee of representation to
women. Publicity rules have
been broadened in the new plan.
As far as political parties are
concerned, there is little differ
ence, since the old constitution
allowed a party system also.
If an interim council is set up
again this year, the method used
for choosing the present Council
will probably be used again. Un
der this system, 22 organizations
were granted representation on
the Council. This, plus the four
holdover members, made up the
Council. If the plan is used next
year, there will probably be
more than four holdover mem
bers. Complaints
One of the most constant com
plaints from some council mem
bers has been the "hurry-up"
attitude of some other members.
As late as April 20, a new plan
calling for a two house legisla
tive system was presented. How
ever, objections which met the
Plan centered around the fact
that it would entail starting al
most from the beginning on a
new plan.
As it now stands, it is -up to
the faculty committee under Da
vis to decide the fate of elections
this spring. The committee will
meet Thursday, May 4, and may
decide at that time ' what will
be done concerning the forma
tion of the Council next year.

Beginning in 1930 with an in

then alumni secretary, and Os
car Norlingf editor of The Daily

for a Union, a campaign de
veloped into a dynamic action.
Members of the Alumni coun
cil Innocents society and the
Student Council took up the
fight. After a great deal -oi op
position and difficulties result
ing from several legal barriers,
petitions were circulated among
students to determine whether
they would be willing to pay a

was interrupted several times.

WeiUnd's Project
Weiland's project is entitled
"Why a Crankcase Oil Should
Be Changed Frequently." Wei
land says that lubricating oils
are subject to temperature and
pressure conditions in an engine
and tend to break down rapidly
to form corrosive acids. These
acids disintegrate metal in the
bearings and elsewhere in the
engine. The presence of water,
gasoline and road dust will ac
celerate this breakdown.
According to Weiland, tinder
ordinary conditions an average
of 1,000 miles between oil
changes is desirable.
Working on atomic energy and
related fields are: Jorgenson,
working with isotopes; Temme,
who will present an exhibit of
neutron counting and radiogold;
Pelton, working with radioac
tivity in photographic plates; and
Haynes, who has found applica
tions for tracers.
Weight Saving
Jefferson has as his study, the
effects of cooling fins. The me
chanical engineering professor
has found that a weight saving
of as much as 25 percent may
be obtained from a fin design
of non-conventional style.
He has worked with heat trans
fer and rate of flow, and is now
working on the determination of
an optimum fin shape.
Collins' work is with lines and

method of arranging this fix
