'V lie within the realm of absolute impcs-
-- sibilities but to be without an advocate
sity on the campus. The proposition toI
abolish all honor and honorary soci-
[on- eties is startling. Just what the rea-
sons for such a move would be or
what argument would be offered in
:upport of it we do not now see.
In so far as. the resolution for pub-.
licity as to the affairs of campus or-
ganizations applies to The Michigan
Daily we are heartily in favor of it if
~- the students are genuinely and serious-
ly interested in our accounts and meth-
Folz ods of operationn. We have no secrets.
nell If the details of how we get the mon-
ews ey from our advertisers and how we
dge expend the surplus left after we pay
>ore the printer are .of interest to our pa-
Gee trons we would indeed be happy to give
rlor them. We have some objections to the
modus operandi suggested. The Daily
ritt has not attained to a state of plutocra-
yers 'cy where every additional expense is
not a serious undertaking. To require
the publication of a leaflet with its
yan consequent labor and expense is a bur-
iiett den we do not care to undertake light-
pler ly. Neither can the Daily always hd
itself out as ready to publish the de-
tailed accounts of all other organiza-
:nan tions. We have a small paper that ex-
Buty pands only with. much difficulty and
greatly added expense due to the facil'
iter ities at our disposal. We are ready
clin to publish such facts in so far as we
ser have space for them and as they may
ney be of interest to our readers.
Further the accounts relative to our
ard own affairs are not within our own
son control being in the hands of the
son Board in Control of Student Publica-
tith tions. It is this body which -must act
nds in such a matter.
It is a thing of beauty-

The Editors of the Directory having
accused us of being one of the causes
for their failure to publish the directo-
ry earlier, by reason of not furnishing
a list of our staff, we have taken some
pains to endeavor to ascertain our
guilt in this platter. In fairness to the
Daily we feel bound to give publicity
to the discovery that there is absolute-

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1911.
Night Editor--William Daglerty .
We give publicity in our news col-I
umns to a communication that is wor-
thy of some thought. While some of
the propositions upon which our com-
mpnicant seeks a popular vote do not
seem to us to be live issues, the idea of
settling campus problems by a direct
popular vote, conducted by the Student
Council, has many arguments in its
favor. It seems to place before the
student body a proposition somewhat
similar to the initiative in the larger
field of government. As this initiative
is agitating national and state political
circles the idea seems not uvworthy of
consideration in the possibility of its'
application to campus affairs.
As to the specific propositions to
which our communicant chooses to ap-
ply his ideas the return of Michigan to
the conference at this time, under pres-
ent circumstances, not only seems to]
request for a list of our staff. All this
is in addition to the obvious fact that
the staff of The Daily is published
rather regularly on the editorial page.
