STUDENT GOVERNMENT WITH
GREATER rOWER
A student governing body with
greater power than the present
Student Council has long been a
need of the University. A council
competent to formulate general
policies concerning University and
student relations with its worthi-
ness recognized by the adnilnistra-
tion would go a long way in .soW- '
ing many of the perplexities now
encountered in the supervision of
students.
It is exceedingly unfortunate f
that the council is limited in its
work to the execution of routine
matters, the maintaining of tradi-
tions, and the remote supervision
of the perennial class activities. It
is even more unfortunate that the
councilmen seem content to repmain
with only this limited power.
Before student government at the
University can hope to attain a
freer exercise of power, it must be
centralized in a board composed of
student leaders, more representa-
tive, more alert to student admin-
istration problems and more ca-
pable of reaching sound decisions,
than the students customarily
elected to the council.
Suggestion of the establishment
here of a board of this nature has
been made in the report of the
University's representative to the
recent congress of the Nationel
Student Federation cf America.
Tli board, resembling those in ex-
istence in western colleges, would
consist of the heads of the student
publications and the presidents of
the leading campus organizations,
and faculty and alumni representa-
tives, with a student majority.
Composed of men with practical
experience in dealing with students
and administrative officers and
boards, such a - group would be well
fitted to reach, worth~y solutions
agreeable to both faculty and un-
dergraduates. The University
could profit much by taking into
serious consideration its opinions,
not only on exclusively student
matters, but also on athletic poli-
cies and general University matters
in which the student viewpointI
would be of assistance
Thoghmuch hias been said in
tepast on the increase of student
government little has been accom-
plished due to an ignorance of the
proper type of institution in
which to rest the power and to a
lack of initiative among students.
With the appropriate body now
suggested, the leaders of the vari-
ous campus organizations should
combine and take steps to obtainI
}geter representation and partici-1
1 paionin the deciding of Utniver-
sity policies relative to the stu-
dents.

orange juice fed you by a very good

that he will be glad to be up again.
I don't like to call Mr. Tinker a liar,
but I have my own opinions.
Even under the influence. of

successfully enacts 1. paradox in

According to recent dispatches,
the "Passion of Joan of Arc will
be shown five more times this week
at Lydia Mendelssohn." The poor
girl will be a wreck before she gets
out of Ann Arbor.
Another dispatch from the
honorable Associated ]Press
states that the French cabinet
is in a dilemma. I once heard a
story about a dog biting a man
which wasn't news, but when a
man bit a dog that WAS news.
What of it?

The poet's indebtedness to Yeats,
is obvious. But the very Yeatsian
form is one of the undellying
faults of Mr. Wilson's poetry.
Whereas the grand mnanner of!

stands out as an affectation. mi i -
tation is a necessary accessory to
the progression of poetry, but imi-
tation to be successful must be
more than studied and affected ac-
quisition of form. The content,
feeling, and tone of fhe model arej
important accompaniments of the
form. Mr. Wilson's content, garbed
in the Yeats form, is too light forI
