A HIGHER CALIBRE.
Student government at the Uni-
versity being far below its poten-
tialities both in point of power
granted it and in the perform-
ance of duties within its reach,
proposals for the increase of its
authority and influence are be-
coming the order of the day.
There is a factor of the Univer-
sity, students as well as faculty
members, who do not care for ad-
d4jional student government. A
none-too-lofty conception of un-
dergraduate governing bodies, held
by that particular group, is re-
sponsible for this pessimism. The
low repute of student governing
boards can be traced back to the
nature of the several organizations
on the campus. Self-interest, and
petty and personal politics have
been their dominating motives.
But this year, a few groups, as the
Student council and the, Union
have been struck by a new and
more sincere attitude toward their
tasks. With the standards of these
organizations raising themselves,
their general regard should become
more favorable, and the increase
of their power more acceptable.
In the development of any or-
ganization, its worth must be
proved, before it can expand, es-
pecially when its authority is de-
rivative from a higher source.
Similarly, with the Student council,
it must exhibit a consistent and
effective performance of activities
now within its reach, beforet can
acquire a freer exercise of power.
Stepsharmonious with this man-
ner of procedure have been inau-
gurated by the council. The inter-
mediate aim is to obtain a group of
representatives more experienced
in its several functions, which in
the end will produce a more ef-
fective and smoother performing
Under the present system, a pre-
ponderence of the council members
are seniors, most of whom are un-
acquainted with the detailed duties
and accustomed practices for ac-
complishing these, and possess
more or less passive attitude inas-

9 MILLION A DAY- IT HAD TO BE GOOD TO GET WHERE
A world-wide market place
Eighty-five per cent of the world's tele-
phones can be reached from any telephone
of the Bell System. This includes those of
Canada, Cuba, Mexico, and-by the new
radio-telephone link spanning the Atlantic
-most of the countries of Europe.
AlreadymanyAmerican business men are
using this service to expedite the transac-
tion of foreign bisiness and are finding it
quick, convenient and profitable.
The future possibility of talking directly
with almost anyone in the world who has
access to a telephone is enough to stimulate
any man's thinking-not only from an
engineering standpoint, but because of its
significance to American industry.
