Pick the Right Man.
A new executive will be chosen on
Saturday, May 18, to lead the Michi-
gwn U m dU ring the year 1912-1913.
This election is of the greatest im-
portance to both the student body
and the organization. Every mem-
ber should make it a point to be pres-
ent and vote.
The Michigan Union, although flour-
ishing more and more each year, is
still, in what may be called, an acute
critical state. This makes it even
mwore essential to elect an executive
who can take up the work at the
point where it now rests and carry out
the carefully planned future program.
The Union has been extremely fortu-
nate in the choice of its last two exec-
utives. Howard Barkdull and Mat-
thew R. Blish, and the election of an-
other man of this type, would certain-
ly give a wonderful impetus to the or-
In decidiag upon the candidate for
the executive offide five points should
be well borne in mind. First of all he
must be a good executive, able to
plan and carry out successfully any
problem that may present itself. In
the second place his chief interest
must be with the Michigan Union as
against any other organization. He
must be able to place the interests of
this institution and its weifare before
that of. any other organization with
which he may be affiliated. Personality
and character are also prime points
to be considered, for without these he
cannot do ,the organization justice.
The general ability of the candidate
&ust also be taken into consideration.
Ax__-t ro. bcin; a good executive,
he must be able to mix well with the
students, must be able to handle deli-
cate propositions and must be entirely
free from any campus political affilia-
tions. If both candidates are equal
: rxespects, their merits must
be judged by work accomplished in
the past and general scholarsld. 'i
a way, this may not mean the actual
amount of work accomplished but the
kind of work. The highest variety of
work should be that of an executive
character where certain conditions"
had to be met and the manner in
which they were handled.
This also applies to the other of-
fices and each selection should be
made with the greatest of care. Pick
the strongest and best fitted men, who
have the interest of the institution at

Take More Precautions.
The law library possesses a valua-
ble collection of books on every sub-
jeet taught in this department, one
that would probably be hard to du-
plicate even if the necessary funds
were forthcoming. This being true,
it would seem that the authorities
ought to take due precautions to in-
sure the safety of this library.'
The general library is fireproof, in
the stack room, but the law library
not only does not possess this feature
but its actual construction makes it
a firebox in case something did hap-
pen. Were there a fire, it would be
impossible to save this valuable col-
lection. Such an occurrence would
be a distinct misfortune. The facul-
ty of this department ought to take
immediate steps to remedy this con-
