limited their enrollments in some cases, and have
allowed them under no condition to grow too large
and so become uncontrollable. Peirhaps those insti-
tutions have the right idea; possibly, even probably,
a similar action here would result in more benefit
for the University. At least it is fairly certain that
if we would forget numbers for a time, quit talk-
ing Michigan up merely-as the biggest University
in the United States, and then expend some of our
present effort toward definitely improving the facil-
ities which we already have and toward making of
her the finest instead, our efforts ultimately would
be much more productive of good. Our power lies
not in quantity, but quality.
CHOPPING UP THE BALLOT
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, in his recent lecture on
the subject of "The Ballot," made it evident that,
in the long ballot, to have the job done with quickly
is to vote the straight ticket, and, considering the
stodgy atmosphere of the average voting booth, this
is, perhaps, exactly what* the half-interested man
will naturally do.
Thatrthe longballot is an appalling thing to gaze
upon can scarcely be doubted. One would rather
try to get enjoyment from a perusal of a Mich-
igan railway guide. It is apparently not enough to
list half a hundred candidates; numerous referenda
must also be included. In the end, the ballot looks
like .a page taken from an English newspaper,
which, in turn, resembles nothing quite so much as
a table cloth with printing on it.
The short ballot, on the other hand, puts up one
question or one office at a time, and gives the voter
an opportunity-at least so theory informs us--to
"vote rationally," regardless of party. In.the event
of an absolutely capable man being nominated, the
elector might put a cross after the name of the can-
didate without spending nearly so great an amount
of time in the voting booth, listening to the buzzing
of the flies and the shuffling of the attendant police-
man, as the marking of the long ballot usually re-
The question remains whether the voter should
receive a score of slips at a time, or whether he
should be given an opportunity every week or so'
to make some kind of a choice. He who is only
mildly interested in the welfare of his community
might not be willing to come out so often for the
purpose of voting, but perhaps, even at that, the
ultimate result would be a more sane and unhurried
expression of really thoughtful opinion than is pos-
sible under the long form. At least, so the theory
