that one of the many Republican

Two-House Governing
Body Is Outlined
in New Plan.
Lower House Would Be
Elected; Ruthven
to Pick Other.
Strenuous efforts toward more
effective student government were
made last night by the Student
Council when a plan was adopted
by that body which provides that
jurisdiction over student conduct
and activities will be vested in a
legislative body consisting of an
upper and a lower house.
The plan, drawn up by Edward
J. McCormick, '32, president of
the council, Harry Benjamin, '32,
Louis Columbo, '33, and James
North, '32, has been approved by
President Ruthven. It has now to
receive the approval of the Univer-
sity Council and the Board of Re-

to the present council, according' to
the plan. It would consist of not
more than 16 male voting members
elected by the student body at large
at the regular campus poll to be
held during the third week of the
second semester.
Twelve Undergraduates.
Twelve members of this group
would be undergraduates, six of
whom would be elected to office
each year. Graduate and profes-
sional schools, heretofore without
representation, would have two
members in the lower house.
The upper house, if the Regents
ratify the plan, will consist of eight
members, four of whom will be
chosen from the faculty and the
other four from the student body.
All members of the upper house
would be appointed by the president
of the University, and would be lia-
ble to removal from office by him.
-All laws, regulations, and rules of
conduct enacted by the lower house,
as they pertain to the student body,
would become effective as soon as
they were passed by upper house,
according to the plan. The upper
house would also have the power
to initiate legislation. In order'to
Ie more effective, however, the plan
provides that legislation must ,re-
ceive the approval of the lower
house, or if rejected by that body,
it must be passed by a vote of six
members of the upper house and
approved by the president of the
Regulation of all student activi-
{s would come under the jurisdic-
tion of these two bodies, according
to McCormick, who declared last
night that "no other university' in
the country enjoys such a great de-
;ree of student government as this
Iplan would provide."

New Photography Club
Holds Meeting Tonight
Meeting tonight at 7:45 in the
main lecture room of the Architec-

There will be an exhibition of

The Ann Arbor Board of Review
in an unofficial meeting Sunday;
morning decided to reduce the
assessed valuation of all Ann Arbor
real estate 25 per cent. The change
will lower the total assessment
from $53,000,000 to $40,000,000.
Inasmuch as the city's budgeta
already has been set, the change
in valuation will have no effect
upon local funds, but it will aid
materially in reducing the share'
which Ann Arbor taxpayers will
contribute toward the county and
state revenue.
At the last meeting 'of the city
council, the aldermen adopted a
resolution recommending that the
supervisors reduce valuations by 15
per cent. The larger reduction was
explained ' by the fact that assess-
ments have been rising slowly each
year in response to increased needs,
faster than actual property values
have risen.
