Faculty Members Favor Giving
Trial to New System
of Government.
* The contribution by I)r. A. E. Cas
well, of the physics department, in re
gard to student control, printed in the
/Tuesday issue of the Emerald, bus called
forth from numerous members of the
faculty expressions on the subject, nil
more or less favorable. The idea is caus
ing comment in both student and faculty
groups on the campus and all persons
interviewed seem willing to talk on the
Dean Eric Allan: “.Student control—
why not? There are some things that
stduents can control more effectively
than either faculty or regents- If the
students don’t mind being bothered by
the routine of a tiresome and never-end
ing job, they could probably insure good
order and decent behavior throughout
the campus community just ns ably as
the faculty can. The morale of the Uni
versity is higher this year than ever be
fore. Hit is perfectly apparent that the
student body is just as thoroughly en
listed in the cause of law and order, self
control, decency, hard work and self
improvement. us any body of older per
sons could possibly bo. It seems to me
that « great share of University disci
pline could be safely intrusted to their
Must Maintain Environment
“There should be no mistake, how
ever, as to the ultimate purpose of all
regulations, whether they originate from
faculty or students. I’niversity life
must be so governed as to furnish an
environment that is favorable to robust
physical health, continued and severe
mental effort, high ideals of scholarship,
clean and stimulating social contracts,and
opportunity for spiritual growth. If the
students want to undertake the job with
the definite purpose of creating such an
environment, and I believe that such is
their purpose, J say lot firm go to it.
“I sal through the Fullerton trial last
week ami saw all the I'Diversity's dirty
linen for forty years washed in public.
To me it seems that the students whose
life Iuim emerged so entirely vindicated
mid justified from that test can be trust
ed with self-regulation if they want the
experience and will undertake the work
with the knowledge of what it is that the
world demands of a university. It was
also fully apparent at the Fullerton trial
that faculty control had not failed far
from it in fact, that it had heeen a bril
liant nuccss. If student control is to be
subsituteil it should lie with (lie real
ization that if it is to improve the al
ready clean, active, delightful life of oar
campus, it lifts got to 'go some-’ ”
Dr. John F. ltovanl said when quos
tioned on tin' subject: "Toward the gen
eral scheme of student control when well
worked out, 1 am strongly in favor. I
consider it a good stunt.”
Dean Straub Doubtful
Dean .1 ohn Straub: “Fonsiderably less
than ten per cent of the colleges have
student control. A year or two ago 1
read in an educational journal where the
student bodies of two colleges of con
siderable note had turned back their stu
dent government to tin' faculty. Per
sonally I would favor student control
here for ,i trial if desired by a large ma
jority of the students. 1 do not think,
however, that it is the ideal form of
govi ament, because the students in con
trol, feeling that they must make good,
become too severe or else not desiring
to appear vindh five or unjust mal e their
sentences too light. In all institutions
in which they have student control as far
ns 1 know the faculty retains the right
of veto.”

Up to date $10,490 has been raised in

keep on until they do get it—will make
$50,000 to which the state will add a like
