POLITICAL PROBLEMS AND THE STUDENT
With tlie national election drawing near, political activity
oji the campus and elsewhere is at its height. There seems to
he an inclination here to take the political clubs and the whole
situation lightly. Perhaps this arises from the fact that there
is a general sentiment the nation, over to regard the matter as
Yet this should not he. A republic is based on the principle^
that the people are capable of governing themselves. One
fundamental purpose of education is the training for citizen
ship. Tt is well that in the course of his training the student
should practice good citizenship whenever the opportunity is
offered. .It is one of the requirements of good citizenship to
exercise serious judgment on such matters, for the college,
more than anyone else, should he aide to vote intelligently.
The conclusion is obvious. In the present election there
are vital questions to lie considered, questions that have im
portant bearing' on tlie welfare of the nation. Every student
of voting age should consider thoroughly these problems be
fore lie goes to the polls on November 2, in order that his vote
shall contribute towards the betterment of the nation.
If time is money, as the old adage says, then the University
students are forced to waste hundreds of dollars daily by wait
ing for books in the library. At the end of the class hours and
in the evenings the throng is so large in front of the circulation
counter that the collegians have to wait from ten to thirty
minutes before being served. During these periods of waiting
the students get neither mental nor physical exercise, hut have
their patience sorely taxed. The men and women attending
the University expect that this deplorable situation will be
remedied. A larger circulation counter, and more library
help during the rush hours, would go far toward relieving the
congestions. What are the University authorities going to
do about it ?
The Emerald insists that all communications from stu
dents or members of the faculty for publication in the Emer
ald be signed by the writer. Each dav’s mail brings excellent
discussions upon topics affecting the welfare of the ITiiver
sitv which cannot be printed, because by so doing, the Emer
ald would have no means of defending itself should anyone
take exceptions to the spirit, of the communication. The
Emerald is the official publication of the A. S. 1T. ()., and
every student has the right to make use of it as he pleases;
columns are always open to properly signed articles. The
name of the writer will not he printed unless the writer"so de
sires. You are invited to make use of the column which the
Emerald opens for your use.
Remember, tomorrow is the Emerald’s presidential ballot
day. Everybody is expected to turn out and vote for their can
