they were staunch supporters of the Y.
M. C. A. criticised that organization
was no less surprising to us than it
must have been to many of our read-
ers. That the officials of the Y. M. C.
A. declined to make any statements
has been, for us, a source of regret
since it made it appear that we were
printing but one side of the contro-
versy.
Campus'Referenium.
The new plan, which has been pro-
posed, to submit all important Uni-
versity questions to the vote or the
student body, is worthy of serious con-
sideration. The basis of the scheme is
the spirit of democracy which-demands
that each university student shall feel
conscious that he is in reality a mem-
ber of a community. The principle in-
volved isentirely just and reasonaole.
The only danger lies in the extent to
which it is adopted. Democracy even
has a limit which cannot be exceeded
without risk. Organization and eff-
ciency demand that some individuals
shall have more responsibility and
some less.
As a means of obtaining the con-
sensus of student iopinion, popular
vote would be welcomed and, no doubt,
usually observed by such governing
,bodies as the Student Council and Ath-
letic Association. At present, they
have no positive method of learning
the general{ opinion of, the student
body. But as a pure referendum meas-
ure, determining the final decision on
important questions, the system would
be impolitic and dangerous. It would
seem that ,a ratification or rejection
by popular vote should determine ex-
actly the wisest course to follow out
if one realizes the general lack of in-
formation on such subjects as the Con-
ference problem, the indifferences of
many students and the influence which
distorted press reports often exert, it
is safe to say that a great proportion'
of the votes could be traced to senti-
ment, prejudice, impulse or mere con-
jecture.
The innovation of the campus refer-
endum would certainly awaken and
encourage greater interest among the
students in college affairs whether it
was adopted merely for the purpose of
determining the general sentiment of
the student body or for passing final
judgment on, important quetions. In
the latter form, it would entirely upset
our present successful system of stu-'
dent self-government. In the .more
'onservative form, it "would possess
every indication of merit.
