’Gravy’ for the Asking
I']N the headless executive committee,
minus ASUO President John Dick, decid
ed yesterday to try asking for applications
before making appointments to various chair
manships, etcetera, they set foot into a field
winch is both tried before and rich in poten
tialities. It will be either great or gross, a
noble experiment or a failure.
The step is a logical one, but its sudden
deve lopment, bringing an answer which stu
dent political idealists have long sought, was
about as expected as if cornstalks were to
grow 20 feet high in front of Johnson hall.
The birth of the idea is a simple example
of the effectiveness of necessity. Stuck for
interested, capable material for the Dads’ Day
chairmanship, the committee was at its wits’
end for which way to turn. They had no leads
at all. 'flic only sensible solution was to ask
course they could easily name some one.
One can always be found to fill the bill.
Hut 1 he appointment is rare in which the eom
bittee really knows who all want the job.
Drawing names from a hat works about the
same way. This new way there seems to be
a chance lor a better deal all the way around.
Not only will the committee know the field
it has to choose from, but the candidates will
be uble to put forward their own names. What
this will do to the “gravy” system is Another
The bid system is not new, however. At the
first of the year John Dick asked living or
ganizations to round up their activity names,
persons interested in this type of work and
capable. Some of these lists came iii padded
beyond reason, others skimpy and incomplete.
It did not take long to exhaust what was at
hand, while at the same time there was plenty
of other material around unlisted.
The trouble with any volunteering is get
ting up ambition to go out and do it, and this
is the key to the success or failure of what
the executive committee is trying to do. It
the crop of bids is light or nonexistent it is a
foregone conclusion the committee will waste
no time scrapping its system. As a matter of
fact, the whole thing probably depends upon
the first tryout, which is for the Dads’ Day
chairmanship. This will be decided Monday,
and if the committee finds no response' to its
offer tile death of the plan will be swift and I
Jobs have gone begging before for the lack ,
of takers, but if the new system is allowed
to die this time it will have a long, rough
One thing which makes itself felt with this
move is that the executive committee is striv
ing to progress.
