“TWIG” SPONSORING STRAW
VOTE ON CAMPUS PROBLEMS
Results of Vote to be Tabulated
and Submitted to Campus
In an effort to bring to light the
attitude of the whole student body
about certain questions' of general In
terest, the Twio is this week sponsor
ing a straw vote on three of the more
discussed of these problems. The ques
tions which were chosen by the Twio
ataff, are: 1. Should there be a mem
ber-at-large elected from and by the
student body to the nominating com
mittee—a commltte which is now com
posed of the major officers, two faculty
members and one town girl represent
ative? 2. Should the president of the
Little Theatre be a major office or not?
That otilce is not now a major one.
3. Should the Meredith B. S. TJ. re
ceive a part ot the budget fee? For
merly that body did share in the
ten-dollar fee which supports the cam
pus organizations, but several years
ago the custom was discontinued at
the request of the B. S. U.
There la no object in conducting this
poll except to make the campus prob-
lem-conacious and to reflect student
opinion concerning these questions.
However the results will be tabulated
and referred to the campus council.
