Democracy Defined . . .
Yet, S t u d e n t Association voted to
allow S t u d e n t Council to handle
relations despite
t h e fact t h a t S t u d e n t Council, itself,
took no official stand on the qlies[ ion " M~Myskariia did! Why did'tiicy

cause m a n y of S t u d e n t Association
feel that Myskania is an undemocratic organization? W h a t does the
t e r m "democratic" m e a n ? Whenever
I t h i n k of democracy, I think of the
small New E n g l a n d town meetings
where every m a n is equal, i.e., he
h a s an equal vote, a n equal unders t a n d i n g of t h e facts, and an equal
interest in t h e vote a n d facts.
A t t i t u d e of S.A.
If the a t m o s p h e r e in Student Ass o c l a t i o n could be m a d e to resemble
t h a t of t h e New E n g l a n d town meeting, t h a t is, all t h e students could
have an u n d e r s t a n d i n g and knowledge of t h e workings of their stu
d e n t g o v e r n m e n t a n d of who was
who in t h a t government, I would
say "make Myskania more democratic." At present, however, I would
say t h a t no more t h a n 250 of the
t h o u s a n d s t u d e n t s of S t a t e have an
active interest a n d knowledge about
their s t u d e n t government. T h e rest
a r e either passively interested, or
interested in intellectual pursuits
a n d bored by such practical matters as was evidenced two weeks
ago when our President announced
t h a t the revised Constitution would
be discussed. I do not condemn such
interests, but am merely pointing
out the picture as I have seen it for
the past four years.

Then, too, Student Council is culty relations or choosing a new

student problems, I.e., government, justice in the future as il has In

Possible Alternatives?
Someone might say, as they did Democracy—or .lustice?
