AN IMPORTANT ELECTION.
Today, the Junior class will elect officers for the coming year. They will choose the men who are to have charge of the most important features of their college career with the single exception of Class Day--the men who will have the supervision of most of the undergraduate activities during the first three months of the next academic year, as well as the direction of the work of the important Union Dance committee and the committee which handles the Senior Dormitory problem. These are tasks which require more than the average ability. They involve responsibilities in very different matters from those with which the officers of the first two years are obliged to cope. There is more to be done, much more, and it requires energy and perseverance to carry the affairs along on a right basis.
Every undergraduate election is subjected to the regular newspaper terms of "representative" or "unrepresentative." No election can be considered entirely satisfactory obviously unless a fair majority of the class vote. On the other hand, a truly representative election is one at which not only a large vote is polled but where the voters have a clear idea of the qualities desirable for the new office-holders and vote accordingly in the best interests of the class. It is an important election--the Juniors should think over it carefully.
