BRIGGS HALL made an admirable assault against arbitrary and unjust tradition when it nominated David Cochran for Dorm President last week. Today it seems that the forces of reaction have recaptured that traditionally conservative dorm. It is well that a female candidate has arisen from the Briggs ranks--no election should go uncontested. She was drafted for the race, we suspect, not because of her many charms and abilities, but because some felt that a girl, solely by virtue of her sex, ought to be Dorm President.
David Cochran knows women and we know a chauvenistic political maneuver when we see one. The women of Briggs should elect Cochran today and defeat the politics of prejudice.
