would result in general and well ad-
vised publicity. The students would
know what their representatives were
doing, and to what extent they were
carrying out the wishes of the elec-
Once this is accomplished, the chief
obstacle will be surmounted. If the
students see that the Council really
means business, they will come forth
and support the body in all of its work.
Another condition that must be rem-
edied to gain independence upon the
part of the Council is compulsory tax-
ation. This also should come from the
student body. If the Council regain its
lost confidence and adopt a rational
system of taxation, there would be no
trouble in enforcing it. Classes would
pay assessments and the individuals
would pay their contributions willing-
The students, like the rest of the
world, like to know for what purpose
they are giving and to what end their
contributions are used. There must
be exact and reliable publicity in this
regard, and facts must not be mis-
If the Council will only take these
means of restoring the confidence which
the student body has lost, there will
be no difficulty in carrying out a gen-
eral taxing scheme. It could be en-
forced as easily as the classes force
their members to pay dues, and with
just as much power. The power of
granting money lies with the students
and if the students believe in the
Council and believe in its integrity,
there will be no difficulty about rais-
These, then, are the conditions the
Council must fulfill before it can re-
sume its rightful place. Open the doors,
get the students behind it and stop
begging the faculty for powers which
are, by the very nature of the Ameri-
can state, already ours. Stand on
your own feet.

For the convenience of the state
press, we might dispatch copies of our
sheet over the state, carefully mark-
ing all juicy bits of scandal. In this
way our esteemed contemps could pick
out the "sinful stude" material-con-
sidered the ultra of good reading for
taxpayers-and be spared the trouble
of reading over the chaff on tame but
praiseworthy student activities. All
of which is bitter irony, y'understand.
This annual show of virtue and su-
periority which affects the form of a
boycott on Granger's bores us excess-
ively. The chosen few never have
made it stick and we don't believe
they ever will make it stick for the
simple reason that there is no .real
reason why they should stay away, and
we nurse a conviction that they don't
really want to.
