especially well founded.
Neither of the two amendment
proposals submitted to the male
members of the student body dur-
ing the past year received any-
thing like a welcome reception al-
though a deluge of plural voting
gave the merit system a large but
illegal majority. The assembly at
which this proposal was submitted
was but the most recent of a long
line of Union assemblies which
have failed by hundreds to secure
the requisite attendance figures.
In view of this failure, it was
argued that the lack of attendance
at Union amendment assemblies
was due to a complete lack of in-
terest on the part of the student
body and that the only means by
which it would be possible to pass
future amendments to the Union
constitution would be to reduce
'the attendance requirement. Such
a proposal was prepared and sub-
mitted at a pep meeting last fall.
The vote was decisively against the
A suggestion made more recently
that the apparent lack of interest
on the part of the student body
was in reality an indication of pas-
sive opposition does not appear to
be nearly so logical. It has, never-
theless, proved an effective means
of defeating amendment proposals.
The Daily has advocated and
still advocates the merit system as
the only desirable method of choos-
ing Union officials. It cannot help
but recognize, however, that stu-
dent interest in the proposal is
necessary before any degree of
success can be expected. Until that
time .- arrives, it does not appear
