Proposed Change in Constitution of
Athletic Association Discussed by
Prominent University Men.
The contemplated changes in the
Constitution of the Athletic Associa-
tion are eliciting ;considerable discus-
sion among the -hembers of the As-
Professor Pattenill is inclined to
regard the agitattoii which is being
made about this maftter as a tempest
in a tea-pot. ie thfinks that the ac-
tion of the Senate in granting to all
students of the University the privi-
lege of voting for members of the
Board of Control ispopular among the
students as a whole and that it is ef-
fective in electing to that Board stu-
dents who are hesi qualified for thel
position. The foIo4wing interviews
will be of interest.

Professor Pattengill, Chairman of c
the Boa'd of Control, was seen at his t
home last evening and gave out the I
"There seems to be some misunder-
standing in regard ti the relation of i
the Board of Control to the questiona
of the election of the student mem- e
hers of that body. In INay, 1902, the 1
following resolution was adopted by g
the Senate of hi University of Mlich- t
igan roviding foi the election of the
student memhers ut lie board:
"'Resolved: That the student mem- I
hers of the Board for the Regulationv
of Athletic Sports shall be chosen un-
der regulations to bi established by
the Board and that in the election of '
such members of the Board, all stu-
dents of the University shall be en-
titled to vote.'
"This resolution leaves nothing for
the Board of Cont rol to do except toi
execute the reiiirements. . Februa-Ii
ry, 1902'an election was held and the
following students were chosen as
members: A. E. Herrnstein, Chas.
Dvorak, H. S. Graver, and Chas. Stur-
geon. their terms expire the first
week in June, 1904. Mr. Herrnstein,
who has been absent this year, did
not resign until last week, since which
time, there has been no meeting of
the Board and the subject has not.
been discussed by the Board at all.
As Chairman of the Board, I was ask-
ed some time ago if an election made
by the Board of Directors would bel
valid. My reply was,-first, that I
was not officially informed that there
was any vacancy and secondly, that,
I did not see how such an election
would comply with the Senate re-
quirements. It is plainly the duty of
the Board of Control to provide somer
method of filling vacancies. That has
not yet been done but will undoubt-
edly be taken up at the next meeting.
It would seem therefore very proper
for the students to make such chang-
es in the Constitution of the Athletic'
Association as would bring them intot
harmony with the resolution of the
Mr. Thomas Roberts. j
Mr. Roberts, a member of the Board
of Directors, when questioned as to
the proposed amendment said:-
"It is simply making the constitu-
tion conform to the fact, which hast
been changed by the Senate ruling.
