CLASS ELECTIONS-A DAY
Just as this is the season of great-
est interest in national and state pol-
itics, so also does it register the high
water mark of interest in class affairs
on the university campus. Within the
next three weeks election of officers in
the 30 or more classes at Michigan will
Class elections-among the most im-
portant of factors in university life-
seldom receive the serious considera-
tion they deserve. The situation is
well analyzed by "A Senior" in a com-
munication to be found elsewhere
in this morning's Daily. Start
considering now the best men to fill
the offices in your class. Weigh them
not on personal likes and dislikes but
rather consider their qualifications as
leaders of the class. If every member
of your class would think over the
situation, and come to class meeting
prepared to vote intelligently, the
"peanut" politicians would have little
opportunity for action.
Particular thought should be given
to the election of senior class presi-
dents, for it is left to them to guide
their classes through the last year of
college and out into the world. Upon
their success in fulfilling this duty de-
pends to a large extent the lasting
solidarity of the classes after they
leave the University.
Let us have good class presidents
this fall-the best there are.

BUILD UP CLASS INTEREST
URGES SENIOR WHO ASKS THAT
STUDENTS SHOW GREATER IN-
TEREST IN ELECTIONS.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Every fall some 30 classes elect the
officers which are to carry on the class
activities, social, athletic, and other-
wise, for the coming year. In the
past the interest in these elections
has been pitifully small, in fact, the
vote cast in any class has, probably,
never amounted to more than 25 per
cent, and often as low as five per
cent. This condition, besides being a
reflection on the class spirit and a
poor consolation to those elected to
office, is in a large sense a reflection
on the Michigan spirit of democracy.
Perhaps the indifference of the many
is no different here from that found in
actual life, but it seems deplorable
that so many men, and women too,
should display such a lack of interest
in student government, besides losing
this opportunity for meeting men; for
after all it is around the meeting of
men, the associations with men, out-
side the class room, and the friend-
ships formed-that spring up the rich-
est college memories, the more cos-
mopolitan outlook, and a truer Mich-
You will very often hear those stu-
dents who have never taken an inter-
est in class affairs, try to justify them-
selves with the assertion: "What's
the use, the gang that's running things
won't give me a show." It is just this
attitude that has thrust control upon
the few and then, because these were
the only ones who had the spirit or
interest to take part in class affairs,
to have the others accuse them of
gang rule and selfish interest.
Undoubtedly this condition is found
more often in the freshman and sopho-
more classes where there is less or-
ganization and less knowledge as to
the character of the men. By taking
advantage of this situation many an
underclassman has been pushed into
office by a few zealous friends or his
own ambitions, and paid the price
by unpopularity or oblivion for the
rest of his college days.
In the junior and senior classes the

men know each other and know their.
abilities, so the danger of a poor
choice is made by only a few in the
class. Surely the importance of these
presidencies and other offices should
attract more interest and command
more consideration from the class
members. Particularly is this true in
the senior class, when we consider the
number of appointments to be made
by the president and the fact that the
man elected as senior class president
will always be president of that class.
Voting in the class elections is not
merely a privelege, it is a duty. If
