through school as their own masters, and have fore-
gone the opportunity of joining organizations in
which thought, speech, dress, and even the matter of
voting are pleasantly standardized. Following out
his habit of thinking for himself, the Independent in
the past has seen no reason for going to the polls
on the day of an election and casting a ballot for
one of the two traditional Fraternity-dominated
parties. No matter which way he votes he is helping
some fraternity boy into a nice, well publicized, poli-'
tical job, which it is customary not to take too
seriously. Hence the unattached men on the campus
have slipped into a habit of apathy toward the
yearly propaganda of the established political par-
ties. Small wonder then, that the selection of the
governing body of the school has become an occasion'
for cheap, high-school pranks, when the large ma-
jority of the students have no interest in making it
a representative body.
Just so long as the Independents, who could elect
any candidates they chose to support with their con-
certed vote, are content to sit placidly back and leave
the running of the school to a strongly-organized
minority they will fail to be represented, and campus
government will continue to be a plaything of the
fraternity men. H. H. {
