At the meeting of the S. L. A. elector
Saturday the election of A. C. Thomp
son was conteated. The protest, signe:
by nine members present at the meet
ing, claimed that Mr. Shannon had re
ceived a plurality on the first ballot
thus being legally elected.
Article II., Section 8, of the S. L. A
constitution reads: "In the election
held by each department for choice o:
electors a plurality of votes shal
elect." A statement signed by Mr
Thompson himself was presented, which
certified to a plurality for Mr. Shan-
non on the first ballot. So long as Mr
Shannon had a plurality, according to
the constitution, he was duly elected
to represent the dental department in
the meeting of electors.
We are informed that a further ballot
was taken in accordance with a ]o-
ion made at the beginning.of the meet-
ing that after the first ballot only the
two highest candidates should be voted
on. This motion was evidently not con-
stitutional, but was allowed to pass.
We are quite ready to believe that the
motion was made in the best of faith,
but the fact remains that it was illegal.
This action was no doubt due to ignor-
ance of the constitutional provisions;
But when the matter was presented to
the electors, after they had been fully
informed of the facts, they should cer-
tainly have refused to recognize the
Some urged that the electors were
judges of the qualifications of their
own membership. But are they judges
to the extent that they can clearly
violate a provision of the constitution?
We mean no reflection upon the offi-
cers elected or upon the good faith of
the electors in general, or the chal-
lenged one in particular, but it must
be evident that if such palpable viola-
tions of all constitutional provisions are
allowed to pass unquestioned, ail at-
tempts at reglation and order becomes
vain and we might as well have no
constitution at all.
The cmmounicatiOn which we publish
today is quite indicative of the feeling
which exists about colleg is ' regard
to the last two games, in which the
Varsity has figured so conspicuously.
It appears that the "kick" registered
is a gsood one and the ground quite
substantial Certainly there is nothing
so discouraging to the patron of bali
games as to mislead him in regard- to
the games he pays for so long in ad-
vance. If our own monster, is In any
way to blame, he shows a very short-
sighted policy. For, what assurance
has the purchaser of a'season ticket in
tUnses to come that other- exceptionally
good schedules will not flatten out as
the season advances?
We feel safe in saying that there is
no college in the middle west where
the students give more liberal support
to their teams than is given, at Michi-
gan. But we do not feel so sure that
this support will continue if our man-
agers are not better able to rill dates
with the scheduled colleges, or at least
make acceptable substitutions. We do
not wish to disparage those teams that
have attempted to play bail againot
the 'Varsity in the last two games.
They were simply outclassed. Nor do
we wish to do the present baseball
