It seems appropriate that
sound, sensible dance regula
tions should be drawn up during
& dance-mad spring quarter.
Briefly, the regulations put
the entire dance schedule Jnto
the hands of Dr. E. L. Mackie,
competent faculty chairman of
the University dance committee,
whose job it is to stop the numer
ous conflicts in dances here.
After being cleared through
Dr. Mackie, the applicant gives a
written order to the buildings
department, at least seven days
prior to the date of the affair.
Such necessities as the piano,
bandstand and decorations are
all handled by P. L. Burch, C.
Huggins, H. D. Williams and D.
M. Horner of the buildings de
partment. The decorations phase is espe
cially warranted. There have
been some nbt-too-nice stories
about some of the deals involv
ing decorations. It is good to find
someone regulating decorations.

In using its veto power for the
first time, the Student Council
ruled that the new town students'
organization was no different
from the Interdormitory council,
the Interfraternity council or,
the Town Girls association. The
council commended the fine work
of those instrumental in organ

time expressed doubt that hold

Thomas E. Dewey. The Rochester pub
lisher came into the national limelight
last winter when he was featured in a
motion picture short, depicting his
family life. Two weeks later, Washing
ton columnists carried the story that
Gannett had used make-up and had
financed the film himself.
The story of Gannett's life has been
one from "newsboy to publisher." As
a youth, he had a newspaper route, and
saved money he received from, odd
jobs he secured m Rochester to put
himself through Cornell. At Cornell,
he majored in journalism, and was a
reporter for the Ithaca Journal, cor
respondent for newspapers in other
cities, manager of the Cornell maga
zine, and in his senior year was elect
ed editor of the Cornell Daily Sun.

In a statement from the council
explaining the reason for their veto,
Davis explained that the council is
heartily in sympathy with the efforts
put forth to establish a town students'
organization and feels that these ef
forts are highly commendable. The
council, however, believes that the pri
mary responsibility of a student or
ganization rests not on the student
government in general, but instead on
its members. It also believes that it is
not the place of the student council to
handle the vote or subsequent ex
pense of a fraction of the student
body. The council pointed out that
such student government facilities
have never been offered the Inter
dormitory council, University club
or any other organization, and it does
not see that this occasion warrants
such a precedent.
The student legislature now has
two alternatives ' it can either over
ride the council's veto by a two-thirds
vote of the body, or leave out the pro
vision granting the town, students'
In way of compromising, the coun
