the council meetings, to hear the dis-
cussions and serve on council com-
mittees under active councilmen,
without voting power. The council
should have complete records to guide
the successors in office in the conduct
of the rush, elections, football celebra-
tions, spring games, etc.
I do not discuss a new method of
electing because my views correspond
closely with Mr. Fixel's. I do favor a
simple method calling for oral nomi-
nations, followed by one ballot vote
to select the candidates from the list
of oral nominees. I may say also that
my faith in "silent" elections has been
greatly shaken. The wicked will not
obey the rules and the righteous are
shackled by them. I am certainly op-
posed to soliciting of votes by candi-
dates or their friends, but the public
should be Informed about their candi-
dates. E. G. KEMP.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
As a substitute for the present meth-
od of nominating and electing student
councilmen, I would suggest,
1. No class now entitled to repre-
sentation in the council shall be ac-
corded that privilege unless at least
55 per cent of its members are pres-
ent at the time when councilmen are
2. Each class now represented shall
hereafter have one councilman.
3. Nominations shall be oral, and
by simply presenting the names to the
4. As soon as the nominations are
closed, the class shall thereupon vote
upon the names proposed, and the two
men receiving the highest number of
votes shall be declared the nominees
5. There shall be free and open
discussion of a candidate's qualifica-
tion for the office, but absolutely no
pledging of votes or support.
6. Anyone caught pledging or solic-
iting votes, shall be disciplined by the
student council in some substantial

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
Permit me througah your columns to
accept the invitation of the student
council, and propose the following sys-
tel of election of councilmen:
1. Restrict the size of the council
to nine, with the following apportion-
ment: lit dept.-3, eng. dept.-2, law
dept.-2, med, dept.--1, combined dept.
2. With seniors only eligible, L e.
make it a senior council.
3. Elect councilmen in the spring
of the junior year, say the week fol-
lowing spring recess, to take office au-
tomatically on Commencement day.
4. Require councilmen-elect to at-
tend meetings regularly from the time
of their election, according to existing
regulations of the council, but without
the voting privilege until they take
. The actual size and apportion-
nent plan proposed are only tentative
suggestions. But the reform most
wieldy. .It can discuss matters to the
king's taste, but I know from person-
al experience how hard it is to get
twenty-five men together on one plan
of action that is strong and effective.
It is often iimpossible to adopt a pol-j
icy until it has been clipped here ,and
there to suit from five to twenty diver-
gent views, and there is little or no
policy left. Discussion by ten men is
almost as exhaustive as discussion by
twenty-five. A policy and action are
sooner obtained from ten, and much
more likely to be adequate. The cam-
pus wants policy and action more than
discussion. It should be primarily an
executive, secondarily a legislative,l
council. A small body would also cen-
ter responsibility on a few.
2. Seniors receive greater ' respect
than juniors, so if the council is to be
reduced the juniors are the first to be
3. The council would be complete at
the opening of the fall term and could
organize and get to work at once. Va-
cancies could be filled by early fall
4. The principal reason for allow-
ing juniors to hold seats in the coun-
