tration Building stands in the far background, facing State .Street, . The new. stadium, situated at Main

Forms Discussion Group
On AllSubjects
A novel feature of extra-curricular
student life is the Student Senate, a
body of 32 students elected from the
campus at large which acts as a
focal point for discussion of all sub-
jects of importance and -interest to
The Senate was organized in 1938
by an independent student sponsoring
conmittee which conducted an. elec-
tion by proportional representation
in March. Sixty-four students filed
nominating petitions. The election
was conducted largely along political
lines with most of the candidates vol-
untarily classifying themselves as
"conservatives" or "liberal."
Issues Were Discussed
Among the naional and world is-
ues discussed by the Senate were
naval expansion, collective security,
the Spanish war, the Child Labor
amendment, the Ludlow war referen-
dum and others. The chief part of
the group's work, however, was devot-
ed to local issues, the most important
of which was the housing issue. After
conducting a hearing at whch laqd-
ladies, realtors and the University
administration were represented, the
Senate recommended State subsidized
dormitories as the only solution for
the problem.
New elections to the Senate will be
held in the fall to fill the seats vacat-
ed by graduations. All students except
freshmen are eligible to become can-
. P.R. System
In the system of proportional rep-
resentation, each ballot is cast with
the candidates listed in order of the
voter's preference. In order to be
elected, a candidate must receive a
number of votes equal to the total
number cast divided by the number
of officps to be filled - in the case
of the Senate, one-thirty-second of
the total vote. All candidates receiv-
ing sufficient votes on the first ballot
are declared elected, and their surplus
votes accorded to the second choice
)n each ballot. Thereafter, on each
count, the candidate having the. low-
est number of votes is eliminated and
his votes transferred to the next
choice on the ballots.
