Campus Balloting Criticized;..
New System Recommended

Criticizing many of the practices
in the recent campus elections for
representatives to the Student Con-
gress, Prof. Clark F. Norton, who
acted as advisor on ballot counting
procedure, outlined what he termed
"desirable reforms" for future stu-
dent polling.
"The two days of voting and the
results of the election", Dr. Norton
pointed out, "demonstrated weak-
nesses in three phases of elections
as now conducted".
The changes recommended con-
cerned the nature of the basie or-
ganization, procedure, and form
of ballot employed. Failure to in-
dicate the required number of
choices on many ballots and the
great amount of apparent blind vot-
ing are two of the evils he cited
Second Annual

The Second Annual Russian Night,
presented by the Russian Circle and
Russian department, will be held at
8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Rackham As-
sembly Hall.
"Days of Our Life," a play by An-
dreev with Russian dialogue will high-
light the evening's program. This is
the first presentation of a play in
Russian at the University.
The leading roles in this play about
Russian student life will be played
bykRostislav Galuzevski, Henry Mile-
zuk, Helene Halpern, and Wilma Mi-
ron. Others in the cast include Ed-
ward Chop, Richard Shapiro, Leona
Landy, Renee Lichtenstein, Martha
Bradshaw, Mary Hapiuk, and Kath-
erine Stasewich.
In addition to the play, a skit en-
titled "The Misfortune" will be given.
Russian dances,songs,rincludinga
few solos, will be performed. Two
poems by famous Russian authors will
also be offered.

as growing out of the nature of the
election set-up, which allowed stu-
dents from all schools to vote for
the entire 18 representatives being
Dr. Norton suggested that "a
breakdown of the campus into schools
or homogeneous combinations of
them would eliminate some of the
problems facing the voter, who, un-
der the present system, is asked to
select 18 of 62 candidates with some
degree of intelligence, an almost lu-
dicrous request."
Rather than having the quota of
votes required for election a variable
quantity depending on the number
of officers and the vote cast, he sug-
gested a quota set in advance.
"Instituting such a change," Dr
Norton feels, "would serve as an
incentive to stimulate student in-
terest, since the number of repre-
sentatives each school had would
then depend on the size of the vote
it turned out."
"The election officials should be
chosen more carefully with empha-
sis on conscientiousness and integri-
ty," Dr. Norton cautioned. "A defi-
nite scheme for identifying the of-
ficials at the polls to each other and
the public is needed, and likewise a
dependable registrationtsystem which
would identify legal voters and elim-
inate impersonation and multiple
There is another change which
Dr. Norton feels, would increase the
fairness of future elections. That
is the listing of all candidates'
names in an absolute alphabetical
order, thus doing away with ad-
vantages by position on the ballot.
"If a pattern for student elections
is to be developed which will be fair,
effective, and foolproof", he said in
summation, "it is to be hoped that the
mistakes of the past will guide us
i.n the future."

'Bill of Rights'
For Teachers
"The decrease in the number of
people entering the teaching profes-
sion is a crisis in mnoden education,"
Dr. Max Wingo, of the School of
Education, said yesterday in a panel
discussion on "How to Make the
Teaching Profession More Attrac-
A "Bill of Rights" for teachers was
formulated which would make teach-
ing more attractive and place it on
a par with other professions.
Included in the "Bill of Rights"
was the provision that teachers need
not be responsible to the coinmuni ty
for their personal actions. Petty reg-
ulations against smoking, drinking
or playing cards ar restrictions
against an individual's freedom which
keep many persons from entering the
teaching profession.
