From the standpoint of both pleas
ure and profit, last Wednesday’s, as
sembly was one of the most success
ful of the year. The preliminaries
were entertaining, and the address of
the morning was interesting.
True, the program lasted longer
than the allotted fifty minutes. It
even lapped over a few minutes into
the next hour. But apparently no
one deprecated the shaving of these
few minutes from the time which is
ordinarily dedicated to class work.
The students felt that they could af
ford to Waive their privilege of com
munion with their various instructors
to listen to so brilliant and stimulat
ing a speaker as Mr. Kumasaki. And
even the members of the faculty
showed perfect composure. They did
not rush to their class rooms to call
the rolls and charge the absent stu
dents with '“cutsi” Nor did they
punish the same students for their
guilelessness in following the facul
ty’s injunction to attend assemblies
by springing lightning quizzes in their
B!ut how different is the story when
a Student Body meeting is in prog
ress! Ab soon as the first alarm
heralding the end of “time” is sound
ed, signals are flashed to the Student
Body President that proceedings must
cease immediately. Should the stu
dents remain to conclude their busi
ness after the, hour, they do so at
the peril of “cuts” and surprise quiz
The Emerald believes that any un
prejudiced spectator will udmit that
the Student Body meetings qre con
ducted in a decorous, and business
like manner, with an economy of time,
and that the practice gained \Sy the
members in thus debating and set
tling their problems according to par
liamentary usage more than offsets
the curtailment of the few minutes
from their class time.
Then why get excited when a Stu
dent Body meeting exceeds the limit,
any more than when a lecture or
other program violates the rule?
Near the beginning of the year the
Emeiald editorially urged the stu
dents to attend all the assemblies
and pointed out the resultant benefits
to themselves and to the University.
At all times we have endeavored to
“boost” the assemblies through our
columns, especialy when outside
speakers have been engaged to ap
pear. But we doubt whether the uni
formly good attendance and interest
shown by the students will continue,
unless the unfair and unwarranted
discrimination against their own
meetings ceases. By refusing to at
tend at all, the students might easily
compel the abandonment of the as
semblies altogether, or the substitu
tion ' of the old compulsory chapel
system with its numerous disadvan
