power and the real source of power is
the general student body, and the
Council represents that body.
Judging from present conditions, it
must be admitted that this is not true.
The students have only as much voice
in affairs as the governing body per-
mits them. The present government of
the university is distinctly aristocratic.
The balance of power resides with the
Board of Regents, which is absolute,
only subject ultimately to the wishes
of the people of the 'commonwealth
whom it represents. This board dele-
gates certain power to the body known'
as the University Senate, comprised of
the majority of the faculty. This body
as far as general university adminis-
tration is concerned, is supreme.
This has led to the generally ac-
cepted theory that the Senate is the
source and fountain head of all power
and that, to secure self-government,
the student body must appeal to the
University Senate for power. This is
the -view which the St'udent Council
has taken and its petition for extend-
ed power has for some time adorned
the table of that eminent body.
At this point the Student Council,
granted to be the representative of the
student, places itself beyond the sym-
pathies of the students who elected it.
Instead of going to the source of the
real power, for the students as citizens
of this and other states do possess
real power which cannot be abrogated
by any faculty decisions, this body has
placed itself in a position ,where it
seems to assume a position as a buff-
er committee, a favored creation of the
Senate instead of a representative stu-
The Council decries constantly the
lack of sympathy upon the part of the
students, in the way' of moral and fi-
nancial support. Yet has it ever tak-
en the proper means to correct this
lack of enthusiasm? -Not noticeably.
Instead, it has turned its back con-
stantly upon the student body to crave
consideration at the hands of the Sen-
This is the real reason why we do
not have self-government at the pres-
ent time. The faculty has judged the
student' body by the Student Council
and found it wanting, not prepared to
take care of itself. When the
real power naturally resides in the
general body of students, it. seems
strangethat the Council should have
taken such an attitude.

Self Governmnent is Needed.
Michigan should have self-govern-
-rent. The students are fully capable
of it and strongly desire the same.
This basic idea, underlying everything
American, that the individual should.
be allowed to male laws and execute;
them and have a voice in the matter
of taxation, is scarce in most of the
universities, including Michigan.
No sooner do we make the above as-
sertion than the immediate question
arises, how can this be accomplished.
Must it come through the governing
body of the university or through the
students themselves? The Michigan
Daily believes that it can be success-
fully accomplished by the students
through their representative, the Coun-
cil. This is the only way in which it
