4Athletic Association May Change
Its Constitution-Rowe Says
That Politics Are Inevitabie.
Ant amtendmitent to the constitutiont of
the Athletic associatiotn has beett pro-
posed. Today at petitiotn calling for a
special mreetintg to consider tiis amend-
mettt will he circitlated. If twetnty-five
signattures of members are obtaitted, thte
meeting, tattler the present constitutiot,
must he called. 'Te date for the pro-
tpnsel tteetittg has ttot yet lieett set.
Floyd A. Rowe, in te following eont-
mttnicatiott, gives attswers to questiotis
printed itt yesterday's I).v, attd pre-
-entts a side of tlte sitttation which has
not yet had paublicity:
"Cenrtletmen: Jndgittg frott the thtree
preceding issutes of Tar DAsILY, it is
clearly eviudentt thtat ttere are sotte fewe
students itt the University who are dis-
satisfied with tlte political conditions that
exist in the Athtletic asociation. That
polities do exist itt the Athletic associa-
tion, tn one can detty, tbnt titless soite

ttay tsr elimtiitated, tiolities swill have to

in the eyes if the would-be refortttrs.
Thtey are iniherent in all orgatizations;
they exist everywhere, ini society, itt the
echureti, anitii e c in thlii faculty itself.
Noi substituite fur the preset systemt
tins as yet lieet siubmtitted; wheit it is,
I ta-clies-c that the Athletie associationi
will lie glaid to tahe oiattage if it.
IHossesver, it applears toi te that sutu' of

affairs if the Athleice association.
As to the mttier if the right of then

exerciseid thes right, giveti to hm as it
a-as by the stdenits temrslves, attd
there is tto room fur qiiestiotiing te

matter at issue. Six years _ago at hoard
mtatde ip sit stutenetts atnd altutnii sia
consvetied for the purpose of revisitng
the constitituti of the Atletie assoca-
tion. rte tiresent eotstitttiotn is the
result of that revisiont. The graditate
sirector under Article V, Sectiost 2, is
girets poer-c ts s-ste as follows: 'Ite
shall lie a tmermber switti esquals rights, oi
tie hoard of diretors.' Its Section 3 of
the samte article, the election to 1111 va-
cancies is ciosered is followes ' Shoutsd
the offie of treasare or flinncial secre-
tary biecomte sacatnt, thre hoard (f sret-
ors shall fill such vaecatcy.' Why, thters
should lie trot exercise the right? As ts
the justice sot his lion-er to vote, thters
is, it seetms so toe, no questiotn. The
graduate director, in this case Mr. Baird
is more vitally interested itt thre swork-
S igs of the Athletic associationt than i
