Indiana Dean of Students/ Says
Undergraduates Should
Rule Themselves.
By S. Beach Conger, Jr.
Campus politics are not essential
to student self-government, in the
opinion of C. E. Edmondson, dean
of students atEthe University of
Indiana, who believes in student
government. "Students should have
the right to govern themselves," he
stated in an interview, "except in
disciplinary matters.
"There are two reasons for this.
The first is that students incline to
be too severe in meting out punish-
ment to their fellow students. Un-
der responsibility, they feel that
drastic action must be taken in
order to keep power and responsi-
bility. The other is that the stu-

"When important posts are decided
by elections," he said, "it is usually
the man who is the better politician
that gets the job, not the one who
is the most competent.". y
He explained the Indiana system
in illustration of his point. "Stu-
dents name the faculty men andl
students to a committee. This com-
mittee, on which, the two groups
are equally represented, then choses
the members of other student or-
ganizations who are to hold respon-
sible positions. They also legislate
on the conduct of student affairs."
Thus, !while the students do not
participate directly in the choice of
the governing bodies, their partici-
pation makes the system student
controlled, while at the same time
men best fitted for positions are
