Paying the
U nion President

LAST year at this time, the question of paying
the president and recording secretary of the
Union was raised. The Board of Directors decided
that to inaugurate such a system would be mad-
visable at .that time, but it was agreed that the
directors would take the proposal under consider-
Last week, after one year of "thinking it over,"
the Board met to appoint a new president and a
new recording secretary. This being done, the
question of salaries for these officers again came
up. The Board decided again to pigeonhole the
matter until the next meeting. The directors still
needed time to weigh the question.
Undoubtedly the Union ranks as one of the
three major campus activities. It is also true, as
members of the Union maintain, that many men
who would otherwise be drawn into the organiza-
tion prefer to work on publications or to go into
athletics because the returns are treater.
Students working on the publications are paid
regular salaries. In fact, even a number of juniors,
as well as the. senior editors are included on the
payroll of The Daily, the Michiganensian, and the
Gargoyle. Athletes, though they receive no mone-
tary profits, are rewarded with frequent trips, with
complimentary tickets to games, and even with
some degree of national publicity.
Seniors in the Union organization, after three
years of competition involving regular duties,
must spend as much as six hours daily on routine
work attached to the two positions. For this work
they receive no monetary reward and in many
cases little prestige on the campus.
The Union has been fortunate in recent years
in having senior officers who have sufficient inter-
est in the organization to work without recom-
pense. This does not necesarily mean that they
will always be so fortunate. Such a thankless job
will not always attract men of the high calibre of
those who have been in office during the past year.
In summation, we believe that the Board of
Directors will make no mistake in creating a salary
for Union officials in order to: 1) pay them what
they earn; 2) put the Union on the same basis as
other leading student acitivities; 3) safeguard the
organization by drawing a higher class of tryouts
into the competition for senior positions.

Getting the
Student's Interest

SOME evidence seems to point to the fact that
science and religion do not flourish together.
From the standpoint of University interest, the
churches of Ann Arbor are not in a strong posi-
tion. In fact, it is safe to say that the per capita
interest in the church among University students
and professors is smaller than that of the popula-
tion at large.
