oom. The amendments are vitaltor invite her out on a date -does-

than four candidates for President
and Secretary, the Selections
Committee have no more reason
to include an outsider than they
db under. the present system,
which does not prohibit an out-
sider from being appointed to be
President or Secretary. If the Se-
lections Committee wishes, thos(
four candidates, if there are al-
ways four, need never include a
lion-past-member of the Union
Executive Council. It would seem
therefore that no matter how on(
votes on the fifth amendment, a
vote "Yes" for the direct election
of the senior officers will not
open the election to inexperienced
and untrained candidates...
The composition of the Selec-
tions Committee also ensures that
there will not be much likelihood
of the election becoming, as Bill
' W i s e suggested, a "popularity
contest." The four men finally
nominated by the Selections Com-
mittee under the proposed change
should be no other that the four
best men of the Executive Coun-
cil. If they are otherwise, then
the Selections Committee has fail-
ed in its job to protect the best
interests of the Union. And cer-
tainly this committee knows what
those interests are. It has used
those interests as criteria in the
20 years that it has appointed the
senior officers. Why should they
change under the proposed direct
election in which the committee
nominates no more than four can-
didates. Is a popularity contest in
the best interests of the Union?
Obviously not. Would the Commit-
tee therefore nominate men who
would lower themselves to mak-
ing their election a popularity
contest? Obviously not.
The meeting to vote on these
amendments is to be held Tues-
day, May 16, in the Union Ball-

to every members of the Union,
faculty as well as student. Re-
member the date and remember
this one of the purposes of the
Michigan Union: "To help in fit-
ing University of Michigan men
for the performance of their du-
ties as good citizens."

Co-eds . .
To The Editor:.
THE CO-EDS' letter in Sunday's
Daily is a fine presentation of
what seems to me the most deli-
cate social problem of UM stu-
dents. And the Michigan males
are mostly at fault here, in my
opinion. Thefirst thing one usual-
ly notices at open houses or other
such informal parties and dances
is that the guys just don't ask the
girls to dance. Instead, they stand
around like a bunch of deadheads
and talk politics, while many very
attractive girls are left to warm'
the bench. The ratio in this casej
doesn't mean a thing. These male ;
madonnas would probably behave'
the same even if it were reversed.1
Any man who doesn't have what
it takes to ask a girl to dance

n't deserve to occupy space in this
community so abundantly loaded
with feminine pulchritude. I don't
blame the gals for being disgusted
at this situation . .
My impression of Michigan co-
eds is that they have a lot on the
ball. Their natural physical beauty
is hard to match. They have ex-
tremely pleasant personalities, to-
gether with a good sense of humor
and a lot of common sense.
They're amply gifted with both
brains and athletic ability. Eighty
out of every 100 girls I've met
are terrific-in every way; 15 are
better than average; and the
other fiveare passable. Here's to
the University of Michigan women.
I love 'em. God bless 'em all!
And as for the men in general
-get on the beam, fellas. It's a
hell of a lot later than you think.
If one gal refuses a date, ask
another, etc. The law of averages
is with you, both statistically and
practically. You can't miss. Re-
member that you must "Seek, and
ye shall find" whatever it is you
want-looks, companionship, in-
telligence-the U.M. co-eds have
it all.
