Couples' Co-Op Meets Today
Initiative, Referendum Methods
Are Recommended By Pollock)
A committee from the Inter-Co-
operative Council, headed by Karl
V. Karlstrom, '43SM, will set out to
prove the old adage that "two can
live as cheaply as one," when they
hold the first meeting of all married'
students interested in forming a mar-
ried couples' cooperative at 9 a.m. to-
day in Room 302 of the Union.
"Karlstrom explained that the co-
operative living and eating facilities
for married students would definitely
be started next semester. "Great in-
terest," he added, "has already been
shown by student couples on cam-
pus." He urged all those interested
to attend the meeting early.
The cooperative house, when
formed, Karlstrom continued, will
operate much like most other cam-

The initiative and referendum have
assisted in "the continuous struggle
to bring political institutions into
harmony with the needs of the peo-
ple . . . and in the future can assist
more, as agencies of progressive
change," Prof. James K. Pollock, of
the political science department, stat-
ed in a survey bulletin issued by the
Bureau of Government.
The fact that initiative and refer-
endum are inadequate and limited in
educating the populace in public mat-
ters is not inherent to them; the two
processes have acted as a stimulant
to the thinking of the voters, he
said. It is the fault, however, Profes-
sor Pollock maintained, of "public
authorities for not having paid more
attention to the problem of public
education on matters of government
in general, and on ballot measures in
Voters are not always well-informed
about measures which appear on the
ballots, and Professor Pollock sug-
gests publicity pamphlets, as they
are used in other states, which ex-
plain the issues, be distributed to the
voters at public expense. As things
are now, it is only through reading
about the ballots in the newspapers,
"which are doing yeoman service,"
that the voters receive any informa-
tion about the ballots.
Many proposals have been kept
from the referendum by means of a
provision in the Michigan consti-
tution which was intended to guard
against any undue delay in the pass-
age of emergency measures or ap-
propriations. At times, proposals
have been given immediate effect,
which are of real public interest, but
which never reached the public.

It seems that Michigan's 135
marching men were almost barred
from the Harvard stadium the day
of the game because of "commercial
complications." William J. Bingham,
director of athletics there, was in-

the name "Buick" in formation be-

Bingham objected to this exploita-
tion of the football clash for th( pur-
poses of the automobile company,
which, incidentally, sponsored the
band's trip east.' The truth of the
matter, however, was that Prof. Wil-
