The possible advent of 4 daily

To compensate for this, however,
the seniors voted to plant cherry
trees along campus walks as a class

State and Student .
One of the Jbills to come before this
session of the North Carolina legis
lative provides for a uniform secret
: ballot system for all elections held in
this state. At last our fathers in
xthe legislature are turning their se
rious attention to a reform which we
of the younger generation have al
ready put, into effect in all of our
. student elections at the University.
The Australian ballot system,
which give3 every voter the opportun
ity of casting his personal vote as he,
sees fit without interference or in-
fluence exerted by those who may be
about the polls, is undoubtedly su
perior to the present system used in
North Carolina. Now, when a citi
zen goes to the poll to cast his ballot,
he is accosted by "workers" for va
rious parties arid 'interests; he is
promised, cajoled and even threaten
ed i the -officials themselves exert un
due pressure upon the voter.
If the proposed reform before the
leislatureis adopted, - it will mean
fairer elections and more .satisfac
tory results. The secret voting in
use at the University has " proved
highly effective in all student elec
tions and is approvedby the student
body. We are now , looking to the
legislators of North' Carolina to take
that forward step for the entire state
which we -students have taken at the
Universiy. - ' -
