All in all from the merit standpoint
the argument for its adoption is obvi-
ous. It should measure up to anything
of its kind that might be produced by
any particular class committee. This
may be said with especial force of the
lower and entering classes. And if no
more than the equal of some of the
present upper class constitutions, its
adoption by these classes should be
considered because of the weight of
their action in establishing precedent
As instances of its worth we point out
that it provides for an efficient admin-
istration and auditing of class finances.
upon a basis such as few at least of
the classes have so, far adopted; and
makes definite provision for the eligi-
bility to membership of special stu-
dents, a generally more or less tangled

greater unity' of sentiment, or interest
in the student body as a whole, but it
might well be of service in that direc-
tion. The need for closer union
is a marked one at Michigan
The adoption of the proposed.
constitution looks toward this
end, and it is commendable because of
it. It also looks and equally commiend-
ably, to the development of unity in the
larger university body by providli g
sensible and effective means for
strengthening the connection between
class organizations and the University
Finally we are pleased with the atti-
tude of this instrument toward the old
question of "emoluments of. office."
There are to be none such "except by
vote of the class." This we think, rep-.
resents an advance in student seni
ment and ideals.

The Proposed Class Constitution.
The Student Council is' to "start the
new year right" by presenting to' the
various classes of all departments a
uniform class constitution' for their
a'ioption. We believe this to be a good
thing. The merit of such a constitution
does not lie, primarily at least, in the
uniformity of class government for
which it provides. It lies, if at all, in
the character of the instrument itself.
We have that instrument before us.
At the outset it represents the work of
a committtee of able men, experienced
in class management and affairs, who
have spent much time and labor, and
secured "and considered the opinions of
other able men in the course of its
construction. It seems to be complete,
incorporaing the necessary and best ele-
ments of present and former class con-
stitutions. It outlines, furthermore,
new features bespeaking advances in l
No Balloting Necessary at Meeting. of
Owing to the fact that the election
of the three men to fill the vacancies
in the athletic association will not be
contested, it has been decided to do
*away' with the actual balloting and in
its place hold a general meeting of' the~
association. General business, the
hearing of reports, and the formal elec-
tion of three men will be taken up.
The meeting, which will be open to
all members of the association, will
be called at half past ten Saturday
morning in University hall. Trhe re-
ports of the outgoing secretary and
treasurer will be read and action tak-
en on them. Any general business
may be brought up. It is probable that
a motion will be made to have the sec-
retary cast a unanimous ballot for the
three candidates as their election is
now only a matter of form. Coolidge,
Hunter,. and Shaw will be the men
There was a meeting of the board of
control yesterday afternoon when va-
rious matters were taken up. Nothing
of importance was done, however, ex-
cept-the culling of the meetingSatur-
