"Out in the Cold Again”
JN THE BY-LAWS of the ASIIO constitution
adopted Thursday there are only two
things that would, mark them as a departure
from past regulations for the conduct of stu
dent government: the definition of the presi
dent’s power to make certain appointments
and the omission of any mention of class gov
The first of these changes is only a super
ficial one, putting in writing a power that
has traditionally been exercised by ASIJO
presidents, hut the wisdom of which has been
repeatedly challenged. In fact, during tin1
elections of last spring one of the candidates
proposed that the appointive power be taken
' from the hands of the president and invested
in the executive council, thus creating an ex
ecutive body of considerable prestige and,
even more important, one of broader respon
sibility to the whole rank and file, of the
student body. This is a proposition well
worthy of consideration.
The other change — the omission of the
usual regulations covering the direction of
class affairs—does, however, present a real
change from past constitutional by-laws. For,
since 1925, the whole structure of class gov
ernment has been an appendage of the ASUO.
# * •
rp,IIE HISTORY of this connection between
the associated students and the classes
goes back to the years of 19215 and l',)2-l, when
certain problems peculiar to class government
made the step seem advisable. These problems
arose primarily from the lack of continuity
in the administration of class organizations
due to the annual change of membership. For
one thing, there was alway doubt as to how
to dispose of the residue in the class treasuries
at the end of the year. For another thing,
there was the yearly puzzle of how to bring
class organizations into existence when the
whole membership of the preceding year
theoretically had advanced a step upwards in
their university career and could no longer
be termed freshmen, sophomores, or juniors,
as the ease should be. lienee, the best possible
solution seemed to be the linking of the trans
ient elass organizations to the comparatively
stable ASUO.
For these reasons, since 1925 the classes
have 'always deposited their funds with those
of the ASUO, which were placed in the hands
of the University cashier, as they are today.
Also continuity of elass government was
established with a provision that elass elec
tions should be conducted by the vice-presi
dent of the associated students, thus giving
them the necessary annual send-off. And
the plan rolled smoothlyalong without a hitch
until 1935, when the establishment of optional
student body membership upset many an ac
tivities apple-cart.
* * #
UNTIL 1935, there was little cause for
Complaint that the classes should be
bound to the ASUO, for class members all had
student body cards; but after compulsory
membership in the associated students was
abolished, persons who didn’t have student
body cards felt it unfair that they should be
debarred from participation in elass activ
ities. And this feeling was proper, too, be
cause the only justification for the class
ASUO liason was its convenience—not suffi
cient grounds for the exclusion of non-stu
dent body members from entering into the
activities of the classes.
That is the reason neither the present
constitution nor it by-laws contains any men
tion of class government. The classes have
come of age; they’re weaned, and apparently
it’s up to them to shift for themselves.
But their siuation is not at all desperate.
There are plenty of ways by which they may
accomplish continuity of organization without
reliance upon the ASUO. They can deposit
their funds with the University cashier, just
as they do at present. And they can easily
establish independent constitutions providing
for the election of officers and for the per
petuation of their associations.
A logical first step in I he re-arrangement
of their affairs would he for officers of all the
class organizations to put their heads together
in common council. They share the problem
jointly; they may as well come to a joint

which the government of the United States may
become involved will be willing to take up arms
against the capitalistic regime when the workers
