In speeches remarkable for
their similarity, the three can
didates for the Presidency of
the student body outlined brief
ly their ideas as to how student
government should be carried on
in Chapel yesterday morning.
Only a small number of students
were present. ; -
J. Windy Crew declared that
"It is time that something' be
done when a political boss can
go around and tell men that
they. can or cannot run for an
office. The way that politics
are run here now is a disgrace
to the student body."
He urged the establishment
of definite political parties, with
primaries to be held at which
every man who wanted to run
for an office would have a
chance to do so. "I would like
to have the responsibility of put
ting politics on a different basis
here," he said.
It is not the duty of the Presi
dent of the Student Body to, be
up until three or four o'clock in
the morning watching for
drunks coming in from the
dances, or anything on' that or
der, according to Crew. "The
( President should be honest e
nough to uphold the honor , sys
tem himself, once in office,", he
asserted. "He should initiate
"It should not be the purpose
of the Council to blast anyone's
future, and it should always
take into consideration the ef
fect of a verdict on the man and
on the state at large. The Coun
cil that grinds out decisions one
by one. without any regard to the
facts is not worthy of its trust."
Walter . Kelley, the second
candidate to speak, asserted
that the Student Council is not
a police organization. "The stu
dents have a misconception of
the Honor System," he declared.
"They should have a definite,
clear cut conception of it. J
don't know whether it is the
fault 'of the present Council that
such a misconception has been
general on the campus this year

Student Body Sentiment On
Gambling Sentences To Be
Discussed Next Week.
At the first meeting of the
spring quarter, the Dialectic
Seriate Tuesday night installed
its officers for the ensuing term.
The following were installed :
President Byron Glenn; Presi
dent pro-tem, Bill Neal; Clerk,
Judah Shohan ; Assistant Treas
urer, ' Harry Weatherly; Ser-geant-at-Arms,
ard. Due to the small number pres
ent, it .was decided to postpone
the hearing of President Glenn's
inaugural address until the next
regular meeting. As the only
business transacted, the Senate'
decided to concur with the Phi
Assembly in the postponement
of the annual Fresh-Soph debate
until next Tuesday.
Senator McBryde introduced
two bills. These were : Resolv
ed : that the Dialectic Senate go
on record as favoring the call
ing of a constitutional conven
tion at an early date to discuss
the provisions of student gov
ernment ; and Resolved : that the
Dialectic Senate go on record as
approving the action of the stu
dent body in its approval of pro
vision one in the referendum on
the gambling cases held last Fri
day. This was the report of the
student committee, which con
demned the student council's use
of coercion in any case except
the one immediately before the

The N. C. Club this year has
been running a series on "Prob
lems of Democracy," This talk
on "Democracy and the Press"
will constitute one of the series.
Mr. Daniels has been asked to
speak on democracy in this con
nection because of his unusually
wide experience on this phase of
mi 11 m
mere must nave been some
Northwest Mounted police a-
round the polls yesterday, be
cause the motto of the embry
onic politicians seemed to be,
"Get your man!" The old-fash
ioned lapel grasping, "personal"
politics was much in evidence,
especially among the beginners,
who were receiving their first
"taste" of our Ivory Soap poli
tics (99 44-100 pure). One
wondered why men go to the
Pick to see an oily-haired wop
torn between love and duty when
he might stay upon the campus
and see students tossed back and
forth by Tweedle-dee and Twee-dle-dum.
It was indeed amusing to see
the freshmen," who were stirred
by a great ideal and who were
striving that the "best" man
might win, approach one of the
foremost, and most tyrannical,
political bosses upon the campus
in an attempt to convince him
that one of the boss's opponents
was the best man for the office.
There should be a secret signal
among friends at the polls, be
cause considerable confusion of
ten arises when two men work
ing for the same "group" (that
is so much nicer than machine)
approach the same man and al
most come to blows before they
discover that they are brothers
under the skin. ..
Strange to say, however, the
voters yesterday seemed to have
opinions of their own. Suave,
sleek, and oily-tongued altruists
moved only by the highest mo-
lives to beat the contemptable
"machine" found the campus
citizens less gullible than usual,
and better informed as to the
actual merits of the individual
candidates. It was amusing to
see a budding ward-heeler write,
out a list of the "best" men for
some man who knew the skele
tons in the collegiate closet of
every candidate. . . '
If it be true that "politicians
are born, Jipt made," then we are
sadly in need of birth control;
if politicians are made, rather
than born to the work of bar
tering honors, then we must be
more careful lest we sacrifice
quality to quantity. However,
next year these very men will
be considered seasoned veterans
and will feel themselves prepar
ed to advise men who have the
unexplainable desire to "politic
around the polls." Yet, as the
battle smoke clears away, and
the votes have been counted, we
find that the sovereign the peo-(
pie has spoken, and that our
officers have been elected duly
by a solemn and binding vote of
the constituency. There is com
edy at election time, but just be
neath the surface there runs a
stream of tragedy.
Pedants Quash Upperclassmen's
Optional Class Attendance
Privilege by Unexpected
Tests, Declares Driftwood
In the first meeting of the
spring quarter of the Phi As
sembly Tuesday night, interest
ing discussion -was developed on
the subject of whether optional
class attendance of juniors and
seniors was desirable and should
be recommended by the Society,
A close vote decided, in Its favor,
Dave Carroll, in introducing
this resolution, found that in the
existing condition of optional
classes certain professors were
wont to indulge in a number of
"pop" quizzes obviously to in
sure the steady attendance. It
was pointed out that the true
purpose of liberating the student
was being thwarted by these
mechanical practices of the fac
ulty. The speaker concluded
that the former situation of at
tendance was far more proficient
because the student had a liberal
amount of "cuts" and was not
harrassed by "pop" quizzes.1'
Messrs. Lewis and Mewborn
were most vigorous in their sup
port of optional attendance. Un
der its policy,- the professor - is
forced to make his lectures in
teresting or become faced with
an empty classroom. One of the
speakers also suggested that
each instructor deliver to his stu
dents a mimeographed sheet of
the dates of quizzes and papers
to be required during the course.
A resolution was defeated that
the present system of the stu
dent being required to pay for
publications be abolished. The
following officers are presiding
for the new quarter; J. H. Har
rell. Speaker; J. B. Lewis, Speak

Charles R. Jonas, Lincolnton, was elected
President of the Student Body yesterday by a

dates. The balloting in the annual campus-wide
elections was the heaviest on record here, total

ous high mark set last year.

Circular Letter To

A letter has been sent out

MARRIAGE, AN ARTICLE; AND NEGRO
SKETCH ARE MAGAZINE'S FEATURES
(By Hopeless) ; ,
"It ain't look like it safe to
die an', it look like it dangeous
to live." So concludes Scip in
the leading feature of the April
Carolina. Magazine, and so may
conclude some timid souls after
reading that Magazine. The
younger generation looks at mar
riage, and is not so darn sure
it likes it. Trial marriage, free
love, birth control, chloroform
ing innocent but defective chil
dren, God, Hell, and many other
terrifying things are mentioned.
The youngsters are looking at
life and talking about it! Truly
this is a dangerous age. But
let us begin at the beginning.
The real beginning is the red
and gray front cover, unless,
like me, you open a magazine
backwards. In that case the be
ginning is the back adorned by
an advertisement of the Atheltic
Supply Company, Raleigh,' North
Carolina, Long Distance Phone
2369. Inside we come first upon
a poem by Jacques Le Clerque.
A familiar theme, but we liked
it. We also dream of Turkestan
and Zanzibar, and will probably
die nearer home than Hoboken.
We would even jump at the
chance, or dream that we would,
of a trip to Peoria.
The two features are Ole Sis
ter and Marriage, A student
Symposium. Ladies first. Ole
Sister is a blessed 'ooman, she
know how to pray in the public
square. She only talks to her
friends about her friends. Where
dey is most praying dey is most
Ole Sister. The sketches about
her are full of biting satire and
boisterous fun. They are writ
ten by E. C. L. Adams and are
taken from a book now being
published t by; the University
Press. Not since Joel Chandler
Harris have there been written
Negro stories as true and enter
taining as those of Dr. Adams.
How can anyone resist Tad's ac-
count of the storm during which
Ole Sister slipped into Heaven
while Peter was helping Gabriel
to shut the windows and get the
chillun-yangels out of the rain
and back into the mansion?
