... 'Ensian Head

Students at the University will
find the 1941 edition of the Michi-
ganensian, campus year book, their
"ringside seat to everything," ac-
cording to Managing Editor Charles
B. Samuel, '41.
Color photography will highlight
this year'ss 'Ensian!, chronicle of
Michigan events. The book was a
sell-out last year and in 1939, and
new features promise to aid in even
quicker sales of the 1940 edition,
Samuel said.
"Continued action" camera shosts
of sports events, a feature begun
in last year's edition, will be promi-
nently displayed this year, enab-
ling readers to watch a virtually
complete unfolding of spectacular
plays by Michigan's varsity squads,
he continued.
Many of the group photographs
will be taken against outdoor
tographers' studios, lending addi-
tional interest to the pictures, he
said. The usual amount of space,
Samuel added, will be devoted to fra-
ternities, sororities and other or-
ganizations. Plans are underway to
give adequate representation to the
cooperative movement that has been
gaining momentum here for several
years, he commented.
The 1940 'Ensian will feature the
padded leather cover that has be-
come a tradition with the book, as
well as many candid photographs
and "plenty of beauty shsots," Sam-
uel said.

new system was designed to give
the organization greater stability.
Elections are conducted according
to the Hare system of proportional
representation and have drawn more
valid participants than any other
all-campus voting in the history of
student government at the Univer-
sity. This year William Elmer, '41,
and Robert Speckhard, '42, will di-
rect the balloting.
On the floor, the group is divided
into majority and minority groups,
with the leader of the former serving
as president and that of the latter
as vice-president. Robert Reed, '42,
is the incumbent president.
Any scholastically eligible student
may petition for places on the Sen-
ate ballot and in past elections the
field of candidates has run as high
as 67.
Full details concerning petitioning
will be announced shortly.
