in class elections, in that their prin-
cipal officers should be chosen after
the plan of Student Council elections.
The idea has been turned over to the
Council with the suggestion that that
body recommend all future senior
classes to follow its example in doing
away with petty politics. All cam-
paigning is forbiddea whether it be
by card, pledging of votes, or efforts .
of friends.,
At an unofficial meeting, the senti-
ment was unanimously in favor of thet
innovation and the se'retary was in-
structed to draw up the plan for pre-
sentation to the class at the o Picial
nominating meeting in Tappian hall
this afternoon.
According to the r~an agreed upon,
the class is to take a secret ballot,
each member voting for one man. The
ten men receiving the highest vote are
to be placed upon the board without
the result. An opportunity will be
given to any candidates, who, on ac-
count of other duties en the campus,
feel that they will not have su ficientl
time to devote to th'.e duties of the
presidency, to withdraw their names.
Each member th'ensvotes for three of
the remaining candidates, and the
three men receiving the highest vote
on the second ballot, are to be the
nominees who will Eo on the ticket.
The vice-president is to be chosen by
the same method.Othcr o'iicers will not
be chosen in this way, however, on ac-
count of the time sucl' achon would re-
nuire. These ofces, such as the team
manayerships, call for a man who is
interested in the work. Nominations+
for them will be made in the regular
way. Nominating speeches, however,
are forbidden.
P'llWMENT HUiCHuiS SPEAKS
AT INITTAI UNION D iNNEI

ion this fall, the o licers of that organ-
ization have practically . decided to
crake the annual, football smoker in
the gyms this November an affair open
to Union members only. As the matter
'stands, there are even now enough
men belonging to the Union to fill the
two gymnasiums, and it is argued as
the Union takes all the~ responsibility
of the smoker, it is perfectly proper
that it should offer admittance to whim
it desires.
According to Union officials, the new
regulation was not made with the idea
in mind of forcing students to join the
Union in order to attend an event of
general interest. It is thought that a
student who is loyal enough to come
out for a post-season smoker is, in
most cases, possessed with enough
school spirit to join an organization in-
tended for all Michigan men.
Last year, some 1,800 men crowded
into the gym for the Union smoker.
Before the end of the present campaign
it is hoped that the Union will have
considerably over 2,000 members, so
even if an entrance to the big smoker
were only granted to Union members,
it is probable that some of the latter
would have to be excluded.

MEMBERSHIP IS
STILL INCREASING
:s a Result of Last Night's Canvass,
1)1 New Members for Union
Are Secured.
TOTAL LIST IS NOW 1990
Unio~n membership figures went up
about 125 as a result of last night's
work of the campaign committee.
These with the 133 new names secured
the preceding evening bring the total
result of the campaign within easy hail
of the 300 mark. At a late hour last
night the number of names on the
Union membership book was 1.990.
C. H. Lang, '15, is high man so far
in selling new memberships in the
house-to-house campaign, his total be-
ing 12; while H. S. Parsons, '15E, high
man Wednesday night, has dropped to
second place with nine blue coupons
to his credit. R. L. DeLange, '13E,
stands third with eight memberships
sold, and E. O. West, '14L, is fourth
with seven.
Last year the membership campaign
netted some four or five hundred new
names, but inasmuch as the early sidle
was phenomenal this fall, Union offi-
cials are especially pleased that the'
"house-to-housers" have been so suc-
cessful in their ,work.
MANAGERS MUST GET 'BUSY
Class Teams to be Examined by r..
May Immediately.
Interclass football teams have been
slow in rounding into shape this fall,
and much remains to be done if all the
classes are to be represented when
the schedule of games begins next
Thursday. Men have been slow in re-
porting to Coach Douglas, and a few
managers have not mustered material
for a full eleven.
Each manager must hand i an ap-
proved list of eligible men at the Ath-
letic office before Monday noon. Dr.
May is ready to make appointments
with managers for physical exmina-
dions of all candidates of their respect-
lve teams. One team will be examin-
ed at a time,and approved lists will
be completed immediately.
MIMES TO FEATURE DINNERS,
(1lub Will Give Short Sketches at
Membership Gatherings.
Membership dinners at the Michigan
Union this year will be featured by
twenty-minute sketches to be present-
ed by members of the Mimes, the Union
opera club. At a meeting of the club at
the Union Wednesday evening, it was
decided that a scarf pin of artistic
design should be the official insignia
of the organization, and at the same
,time the composition of several of the
more important committees for the
annual Union opera was discussed.
Open meetings will be the order with
Mimes hereafter, and all associate
