    Politically-Minded Freshmen
To Vote on Constitution Jan. 17
Freshman embryo politicians will get their first taste of
campus politics Wednesday, January 17, when they vote on a
class constitution and nominate officers for the 1945 term.
The constitution to be submitted for their approval contains
primarily the same provisions found in the immediately pre
vious class constitutions; and, as
directed in the ASUO constitution,
is in accordance with ASUO rul
Under this constitution, officers
of the class of 1948 would consist
of a president, vice-president, sec
retary, and treasurer. With the ex
ception of the presidential office,
all vacancies are to be filled by
decision of the remaining officers.
Other appointments also are made
by the officers.
All members of the class of 1948
are eligible to vote and to hold
offices, according to the suggested
constitution. At one time each
class required the purchase of a
class card as a prerequisite for
voting or holding office but the
executive council outlawed the
practice spring term, 1942, making
it illegal for any class to include
a class card provision in its con
As with all class constitutions,
nominations are to be held at least
seven days before elections, al
j though the nominating assembly
| winter term the first year is held
two days before elections. Certifi
cation of eligibility and declaration
of intention to run must be sub
mitted to the ASUO president at
or before the nomination assembly.
Differing from previous consti
tutions, no provision is made for
dark horse candidates who might
decide to run for office after the
nominating assembly is held. Only
persons whose petitions are sub
mitted previous to the nominating
assembly or at that meeting are
eligible for election.
A ballot recount may be request
ed by a petition containing names
of 25 members of the class and pre
sented to the president up until
two weeks after elections.
The constitution provides that a
quorum consists of one-fifth of the
members of the class. Amendments
and by-laws are subject to a two
third vote, plus approval by the
ASUO executive council.
Those Red Points
With the meat shortage more acute than ever,
you want quality plus good values in exchange
for those points.
