It is necessary to elect officers in

is necessary to organize the classes
that they may carry on their inter-

and it is the duty of class members
to see that such officers are duly el-

On several occasions in the past
Councilmen have sent home a handful
of students who came to the meeting
place, because an election held by a
two or three per cent representation
would be nothing short of a burlesque.
Had this small body of interested
students been elected to officially rep-
resent their class at all future gath-
erings, as a recognition for their in-
terest, there would have undoubtedly
been a storm of protest. However7
such a condition would be justified for

cate the low value they place upon

But that's not wiy I weep.

To the Editor:
In a reception to new students,
President J. 'B. Angell of Yale UIni-
versity recently sa'd, "You cannot
under the Federal law and you can-
not under the University law, bring
intoxicating liquors into any building
of the University. Whatever you may
think of the eighteenth amendment or
of the 'moderate use of liquor, this
rule holds". Ile further stated that
violation would mean d'smissal. He
gave his warning as follows: "The
University will not qPermit dissipa-
tion. No man can come to any great
success at Yale who is known to be
a dissipated man."
While this message is intended for
Yale students, it should be borne in
the minds of students here. The
rules. laid down by President Angellj
are intended to eliminate profligacy so
often indulged in by a certain number
of students. I need not cite any nci
dents of happenings in this Univer-
sity. Suffice to say that we all wish
for their extirpation.

its predecessor several years ago, for
daring to question or erticize a su-
