would be subject to appeal or re-

The Senate committee revised
would be an ideal working unit. It
would possess sole and unlimited
authority over student concerns.
Faculty and students would be en-
abled to deal directly together, to
co-operate immediately and to ap-
preciate the values in divergent
views held by administration and
students. This should go far toward
removing many of the cankerous
spots which have done much to
estrange these interests in the past.
It should compel both to make ear-
nest and decided efforts to deal
together openly and without rancor.

And who cares? Every darn year
about this time Spring has to pop
up and - ruin all my studying and
all your studying and in fact pretty
near all of our studying and what's
more it makes it awfully hard to
study. Of course, Winter and Fall
are very much the same way, but'
one never feels he can do anything
about that. Spring is different.
Every year comes that feeling along
in January that Spring isn't com-
ing this year after all and you will
be able to get that thesis in on time.

faith, however, it whizzes around

son for installing the revised plan
of student government. But there
are other benefits. The end of the
Student council would mean an end
likewise to inconsistency, irrespons-
ibility and instability in studentj
government; it would mean an end
of the happy hunting ground for
campus politics and of the stagna-
tion of leadership which only fly-
brained and self-seeking politicians
can concoct.

The successful installation of this
project before the end of the pres-
ent school year would mark the
start of an epoch augering tremen-
dous possibilities for a completely
high-powered student governing
agency. Today's ballot is an initial
step in such a movement. For the
first time in years, students at large
are showing an interest in the man-
agement of their affairs by satis-
factory, and estimable outfit. We
specifically urge that this interest
be manifested by a vote the nature
and size of which will compel at-
tention from the authorities who
must effect the changes cited above.
To the furtherance of this end,,the
students today have occasion for
demonstrating not only interest in,
but responsibility for the conduct
of their affairs.
Students playing on the new Uni-
versity golf course should cooperate
to the fullest extent with those in
charge in the. observance of the
course regulations.
Since the opening of the new
1 course many student-players have
not observed the rules, and have
taken the attitude that they are
playing on public links, and there-
fore need not go out of their way
to replace turf, walk around bunk-
ers and the like. The University
'does not ask more than any private
club would expect from its mem-
bers, and when students tee balls
off greens, pick up other players'
balls and lack common courtesy,
the University has a perfect right
to place rangers at every hole.
Michigan sdudents should take
enough pride in their course, one
of the best in the state, to do every-
thing in their power to keep it in
the finest condition, and to make
playing on it more enjoyable in
every way. Unless the action of
many of the players improves there
is little doubt but that steps will
have to be taken to patrol the
course thoroughly.

Too much emphasis upon the
practical advantages of the pro-
jected Student council-Senate com-
mittee on student affairs realign-
ment, upon which the campus is
today balloting, would be difficult
to place; in fact, the chief merit of
the proposal is fully evinced only
when it is regarded as a highly
practical working plan.
It is not too much to say of this
plan that if placed in operation, it
would eliminate, categorically, every
evil and defect of the present stu-
dent government agency; further,
it may not be too extravagant toI
say that it will inaugurate a newl
era in the management of student
affairs, in the improvement of fac-
ulty-student relations and sympha-
thies, and in the elimination of
baleful habits of campus politicians
when jugglipg for student council
The proposal, in brief, is to scrap
the present Student council as such
and to revise the Senate committee
on student affairs to make its mem-
bership consist of seven faculty
members as'. at present, five ex
officio student members as at pres-
ent, and two student members
elected by the campus at large from
nominees approved by the com-
mittee of the previous year. The
dean of students would remain
chairman of the committee. This
group would have full administra-
tive and legislative powers over stu-

To the Editor:
The Daily's report of Professor
Gidel's lecture on "Peace Agencies
Since 1919," accurate as far as it
went, seemed to give a wrong em-
phasis and draw a pessimistic con-
clusion. While Professor Gidel stat-
ed that the many interpretations of
the Briand-Kellogg pact are juris-
dicially valid, that they constitute
the most definite sanctions of war
ever gathered, and are a retrogres-
sion from Articles X and XVI of the
covenant of the League of Nations
and from the unaccepted Geneva
protocol, he said this from a strict-
ly legal " point of view-as an au-
thority on International Law. His
principal conclusion, however, which

the Mendelssohn Theatre. The or-
ganization of this trio for the pur-
poses of introducing the fine liter-
ature for this chamber combination
to Ann Arbor patrons in the Facul-
ty series has proved one of the hap-
piest moves the local School of
Music has made in some time. Re-

the idea is widely appreciated. The

The second annual exhibition of
