Auburn Plainsman (Newspaper) - February 7, 1939, Auburn, Alabama Semi weekly tuesday edition Abb Thirn Platsman vote for Cabinet changes vol. Lxii a i Auburn Alabama tuesday february 7, 1939 number 38thirty-five Are elected to Phi Kappa Phi the editor says the most revealing Book that we have examined in a Long time is the Loose Leaf volume entitled a minutes of the executive Cabinet of the associated undergraduate students of the Alabama polytechnic Institute a which we read and re read during the Christmas holidays. More than anything else that Book opened our eyes to the inadequacies and inefficiencies of student government at Auburn. A close study of the minutes and of the old plainsman files showed us that the Story of student government at Auburn is one of politics of graft of humor and even of dignity. We came to the same conclusion that this years progressive Cabinet has come to that for it to become a powerful Agency for student welfare it must change the rules and regulations under which it operates. A a the Cabinet has realized that the time has come for it to set its House in order. Consequently it has Given its stamp of approval to certain constitutional changes. These proposed amendments Are to be voted on by All four of the classes at the Spring elections and must obtain a two thirds vote to become effective. For too Long a time Auburn students have criticized the Cabinet. Raking the Cabinet Over the coals has been the pastime of More than one plainsman editor and of dozens of letter writers. And often their criticisms have been More than justified. Now the Cabinet is Giying Flie students an Opportunity to help carry out the reforms which they have been crying for to these Many years. Nothing but a favourable vote for All of the proposed amendments can change our inefficient system. This Cabinet has moved the next move is up to the students themselves. A a let us look briefly at the proposed changes in the governing document and see what they aim to do. The changes in Section 2 of article in provide that eight percent of the student body can by a petition Force the Cabinet to submit any act or decision of that body to the students for approval or disapproval. The provision follows closely the procedure used in almost All state governments. The second change in Section 2 of this article sets up what is probably the Best Check on government the students can have Complete and full publicity for All arts and decisions of the Cabinet. The Complete minutes kept by an efficient Pennanen Secretary will be published in the plainsman. Any Shady deals or impair acts will be immediately brought to Light. The proposed amendments also a provide for the initiation of changes in the Constitution by the student body at Large. This provision also follows general state practice. If a Cabinet is reluctant to initiate needed changes the students can do it themselves. The membership of the Cabinet will be radically changed by the new article on membership. The class presidents and the coed president will be Given seats on the Cabinet thereby coordinating the work of All the governing agencies of the student body. This provision however increases the membership of the Cabinet from 11 to 16�?almost the membership in the Cabinet before its membership was first changed in 1935. We Are a bit dubious of this provision because it does increase the size of the governing body. It May tend to make it unwieldy and even As in the old Days so Large that it can never get enough members there to make a quorum. However we believe that the advantages in coordination of the classes and co eds with the Cabinet overweight any disadvantage in size. Continued on Page four colourful beaux arts Ball to be Given by architects saturday night Velen port a important College honors have a ome this year to miss Helen porch Auburn Junior in Home economics from Alexander City.

Watch ads for your name is advice free theater passes to be awarded every Issue to carry names of winners of passes in ads in this Issue of the plainsman we Are inserting names of students to whom passes will be Given absolutely free by the Tiger theater. There a no trick to it folks. Its the real Mccoy for sometime now we have been wondering How Many of you really read the advertising. Of course we like to think that All of you do but some of our advertisers and would be advertisers done to think so. Therefore to be certain that All of you Are Reading it we Are giving away these passes. The names there Are More than one of the persons receiving passes Are scattered through the advertising.
