Put your ear to the political turf and hear the
rumblings of the first red-hot student election
campaign this campus has witnessed in a good
The air is filled with all kinds of campaign
promises some of which deserve student atten
tion. On the front page of today's paper, candi
dates for class offices present their platforms.
Whatever you do, read this section. Look for
ideas which you believe should be put into op
eration. Look for candidates with solid, well
thought out proposals. Try to evaluate the plat
forms and see if the candidate is running because
he believes in class government or5 if he is merely
someone shoved in to pad the ballot.
Take In all the advertising, all the platforms
There are a lot of students, more than any
election in recent years, running for class and
Student Council positions. Most of them are run
ning because they honestly want to represent you.
It is up to you to show equal interest and elect
the best candidates.
The best candidates can only be elected if
every eligible voter exercises his privilege. Unless
everyone votes, certain candidates will win be
cause they are supported by block votes not be
cause they are the best persons for the job. This
does not mean that the candidates supported by
the Faction, or any other political movement, are
not worthy. But it does mean that these candi-
dates should be elected on the basis of that worth
and not because they happen to have group sup
port. There are some enterprising independents
running this year. I believe that it would be good
for the school if the myth that an independent
doesn't have a chance in campus politics would
be blasted. That does not mean that I endorse all
independents; it does mean that no one should be
overlooked because he doesn't wear a Greek pin.
There are women on the ballot in unprece

vote. If it does, it will be the first time I can

Councils from Colleges
A few weeks ago there was some heated dis
cussion concerning the re-opening of filings for
class officers. The Student Council decided to re
open the filings because a lack of candidates
threatened to Invalidate the officer elections.
But the Council Judiciary Committee and the
faculty had to pass on the Council action.
It was in the Judiciary Committee meeting
that the two views concerning the future of class
government decided on a compromise. This com
promise was accepted by the faculty and Thurs
day afternoon the Council also passed it.
Here's the plan: Instead of having Council
chosen, class councils working with the class offi
cers, junior and senior representatives from eight
colleges would fulfill this function. The officers
elected this spring would implement this plan and
prepare it for the future.
a senior class president would be elected by the
seniors at large. The other officers would be
elected by the college representatives.
The class councils serving now were chosen

The important thing about this new idea is
the support it is getting from both the advocates
of strong class government and their opponents.
With backing like this, the new plan is sure of
Just how is this new proposal better than the
old plan? In the first place, it satisfies the old
claim that true class spirit can come only through
the colleges. Class associations, it is argued, are
made and kept on the college level (this is ex
cluding associations made within small social or
ganizations). This college loyalty will be ex
ploited under this new plan.

The 97-hour maximum, most Council members
agreed after the meeting, would have opened the
vote to a number of students who will clearly be
seniors next year and who should have the right

No doubt, you have, Jn all prob

the course of electrical engineer

the numerous machines, devices,
phenomena, developments and
progressive engineering habits."
One cannot help being awed by
your magnificent array of gadgets
and devices which bless our so

machines for which we labor. But
one wonders what on earth all
these ethereal gadgets are doing
here. They should be in an en
