April 9, 8 p. m.-Lecture by Prof. Van
Tyne on "A Trip Down the Dan-
ube," at Sarah Caswell Angell
If any two questions can be said to
occupy a place before all others in the
minds of the students today, without
a doubt they are, first the old and con-
stantly present question, "How can we
better Michigan Spirit?" and second,
the question, "What can we do to put
student affairs on a self-governing ba-
sis." Any plan which may even par-
tially answer either of these questions
is worthy of serious consideration at
the least and possibly of a trial. The
club house committee is wrestling
with the first problem, and in a few
years hope to see it answered, and
several other "Michigan-spirited Insti-
tutions" are working toward the same
end. But a plan has recently been
suggested which-though it would not
directly answer this first question-
would answer the second in such a
that the reaction it would be
and in many respects most practica-
ble-suggestion is simply to establish
at Michigana "Senior Council" after
the pattern of similar bodies at other
A "Senior Council," as is generally
known, is a body of students from th
Senior classes elected by the whole
student body, and having some such
ffunctions as are now possessed by the
faculty committee on non-athletic af-
fairs. Here at Michigan this council
of Seniors could consider all questions
of general student interest, such as
for instance, the investigation of
charges of "graft," the investigations
of elections, or the settlement of class
disputes. At first glance this would
seem to accomplish nothing more than1
a shifting of labor from faculty to
students. But there is more to the AN
plan than appears on the surface and
it would work out results of vital and INIIELDIER'S
far reaching importance.
The establishment of such a council
would in the first place put the control
of student institutions in the hands of
the students. Undoubtedly the faculty
would reserve the right of final action
on all the council's decisions but this Made of selectedvelvet
would not alter the fact that the stu-
dents would practically control. The tanned buckskin, built on

A second consideration which rec--
