LET STUDENTS VOTE,
Again the problem of students voting in Eugene
elections has raised its head. This time the census
roll disagrees with the voters' list, there being more
students registered voters than there are students
listed on the census. Possibility of the students
being challenged when they vote was voiced yes
terday by downtown authorities.
A year ago last fall the Emerald and the cam
pus were involved In an interesting word battle over
the legality of students voting In the national presi
dential election and incidentally having a say in the
Sunday movie question and other local issues voted
on at that time. It was decided then that students
could cast ballots if they swore that they were resi
dents of Eugene, which many of them did.
Now these same students were not counted by
census-takers this year and since their oath of resi
dence taken at the polls contradicts their state
ments on census blanks, trouble has arisen. Among
the points brought forth was that certain fraternity
houses would he likely to vote strongly one way
for governor and thus probability of challenge at
the polls foreseen.
That such a condition should arise on the cam
pus where the right of students to take an interest
in national, state, and local politics is challenged
is unfortunate. It is probably based on misunder
standing on the part of the students when they
filled out census blanks. The majority without
doubt did not recall that their being registered
voters in Eugene automatically made them resi
dents of the city. On the census blanks was a
provision that if the student had parents in some
other city who were likely to enumerate him, it
would not be necessary for him to fill the blank
Eugene has a right to expect that students who
are registered in city precincts should help swell
its population total and not. be counted by some
other city. A re-enumeration of certain fraterni
ties, as promised by Mr. Koke, district census super
visor, will help straighten out the difficulty. Stu
dents are the future citizens of the nation and if
they are interested in the way their city or state
is run, such a feeling should be encouraged. The
present crux is mostly caused by misunderstanding
on their part and need not be raised into the realm
of political skullduggery by rumor.
THANK VOl), OKEOONIAN.
Wo would like to bring to the attention of the
campus, in the form of a grateful “Thank you"
the example of friendly interest in the activities of
the University as shown by the Morning Oregonian,
when asked by the eight pledges of Sigma Delta
Chi. who edited this paper as a form of initiation,
to assist in duplicating the Portland paper. We
hope that in copying the Oregonian, we have done
it accurately and carefully enough, so that it will,
in an amateur way, match up with their excellent
publication. To David Foulkes, of the technical
staff, we extend our special thanks.
A fraternity burglar got in trouble with the
police over at Idaho because he didn't know the
Greek on the fraternity pin he happened to be
wearing. Wonder how many co-eds know what
those letters are on the frat pins they’re sporting
Somebody asked why the Emerald didn't have
a faculty golf tournament also, and a wag an
swered that it might not be a bad idea sometime
when the country club wanted to start excavation
for a new building or two.
If disarmament was a state of having arms but
not using them, then we know a lot of co-eds who
would make swell delegates tv* a peace conference.
The May College Humor had a cartoon of a col
legian with “Oregon Aggies" on his back, it is
estimated that three Oregon State publicity agents
will commit suicide and another become a nun be
cause of this error.

NEW A.S.U.O. CONSTITUTION UP TO VOTE
Acceptance of Document Covers Student Officers to be Nominated Today at Assembly; Important
Changes up for Consideration of Voters; Class Eligibility One of Major Changes Made.
On the acceptance of the proposed A. S. U. O. constitution, which follows, depends the election of
1 student officers nominated today—on it depends a bond issue to extricate the student funds from bank
ruptcy-ori it depends the possibility of a workable constitution at all.
Yet the purpose of the revision has failed if students do not know its contents; if they again let
it fall into the condition in which0 the document now in force has fallen.
Attention of studlnts is called especially to Article III, in which new officers are provided for, and
in which it is required that elective officers must have been regular students at the University of Ore
gon. Recent transfers are here barred. Too, no officer may be twice elected.
Other important changes are: requirement of statements of candidacy, provision in Article IV for
student majority in the executive council, retention of central power for the council, provision for ap
pointment of yell king, judiciary with individual appeal permitted, provision of a model class constitu
tion, provision for announcement in the Emerald of all class meetings, and the debated class identity
provisions. These last determine eligibility for student office.
By-laws contain much of the important material. Some changes—the managerial, awards, and
salaries sections—will be permanent resolutions of the executive council.
We, the students of the University of Oregon, in order to
! promote and maintain those activities and interests which will
j contribute to the educational, physical and social well being of
