Collegiate Chaff : : By Ron Huhbs
Editorial Comment on This and That
Now that tho political tom-toms
have outworn their usefulness for at
least another year, it is safe to ven
ture a criticism on the class elec
tions. The composition of the elec
torate of each class was determined
by credit hours in place of the old
system of retaining class year
'throughout the student’s university
career. It ps a rather unfortunate
change. Juniors, for example, cast
their ballets for sophomore and
even freshman class offices; for in
dividuals they scarcely knew and
class offices they can’t be more
than passively interested in.
* * *
Using hours to determine class
identity produces other confusing
situations. Each class has certain
functions and affairs which are pe
culiar to that class alone. If a
student served on the Junior Week
end committee, thou failed to secure
sufficient hours to elevate himself
to a senior, he would find himself
practically ineligible for class ac
tivitv. Then again if a (“lass as
sessed a tax on its members, many
of those who assisted in imposing
the tax would escape payment on
a lower class rating. We associate
certain individuals with each class,
and if for no more than sentimental
reasons, students desire to consis
tently belong to their entering class.
* * *
We notice with interest a move
ment started by the house mana
ger’s asociation to have a class
j taught in the university on house
i management. The investment and
expenditure in maintaining living
organizations amounts to several
hundred thousand dollars. Such a
■ move is to be complimented not only
I for its economic desirability, but
as an additional illustration of the
j application of business principles to
student undertakings. The school of
business administration can perform
a real service to living organizations
if they can find it possible to co
operate with the house managers.
