The editor announces that he is con templating introducing an amendment to the student body by-laws relative to salaries connected with the editor and manager of the Emerald. The law at present provides for a salary of $100 a year for the Editor, and $7f> for the Manager, to be paid from the profits of the paper, if there are any. Now this law is clearly unjust to the editor, who must devote about four days of each week to the paper, besides three other days of thought over it. He has nothing to do with the paper paying for itself or not pay ing for itself. The manager is elect ed by the students the same as the editor is, and is independent of the editor. The manager has entire charge of the financial end of affairs, and the paper pays for itself in pro portion to the amount of time, energy and ability he puts into his work. The editor, however, has his work to do for each issue. There is no slighting it, nor putting it off until another time; he must simply be on the job all the time, and under the present regime he is paid for all of this according to the inclination of a manager over whom he has no direct control. The Emerald is not paying for it self this year, has not all year, and probably will not during tin1 remainder id' the year; but the editor and his as sociates have been just as energetic as any previous to them, and are prob ably just as deserving id' a little ma terial remuneration as their produces SOl'S. The editor, in introducing this amendment, does not claim to be thinking of any one but himself and his successors. No ultimates enter into his reasoning, and the good ot the common people, etc., is as far from his thought as a desire to edit the Emerald another semester is distant from his desires, lie makes a straight forward plea to the student body tor something he thinks is coming to him, and makes no attempt to hide his real reasons. The amendment will probably read something like this: the Editor ot the Emerald shall receive Sad a se mcstoi for his services out ot the profits id- the paper, it there are any, but if the profits are not sufficient to pa\ him the full amount, the re mainder shall be paid out ot the gen oral student body funds. Ibis pro vision shall apply to the present edi tor The manager of the Emerald shall receive $75 for his services for the year out of the profits of the Emerald remaining after the editor has been paid his salary. * * * <- ****** I UK S \t.K OK IM>l)l NK ********** Solin' people lot othor people make fools of them, some do it themselves, * * Kveiy knock is a boost except when you're under a pile driver.
