THE ELEC'TIONS for the Student Legislature this semester did not
live up to the rich promise of last October's campaign. The can-
didates this time did not seem aware of the many opportunities for
entertaining the campus open to them.
There were no parties; no straight-faced charges of servile co-
operation with the University; no belaborings of the poor, tired-out
old fraternity c'ntrol ;ustion; and, worst of all, no Burning Issue.
The platform used by two candidates last time showed a
spark of genius. Point number one was, "Make the campus a
real force for world peace," and point number three was, "Let
women in the front door of the Union." The effect produced by
the juxtaposition of these two aims, is something not to be soon
forgotten. It seems to me that there is material here for a really
spirited controversy.
URRED-BLOODED liberals could point out the undemocratic na-
ture of this restiriction, and declare that no organization in which
theie exists such an intolerable abuse of personal freedom could pos-
sibly be a real force for world peace.
Members of our articulate student body could write lively Letters
to the Editor complaining of the effort wasted in walking around to
the side door. Some fiery-eyed zealots might even storm the front
door, waving copies of the Bill of Rights.
Michigan might even rate another paragraph in a pamphlet
published by the American Civil Liberties Union bemoaning the
lack of freedom of American students.
rTHE CONSERVATIVES could reply to all this by declaring that
after all a University exists in its records but lives in its traditions.
They could protest that they were defending Michigan womanhood.
Surely no modest coed wants to walk in the Union front door and
through the lobby, exposed to the bold glances of the hordes of men
lounging about in it!
