j STUDENTS OF
Constitution of Associated Body
to Be A mended in Important
T.a.si year it was decided by the a.sso
elateil students of the University of Utah
that their constitution failed to furnish
Hit- proucr method of student government
and accordingly a committee was ao
polntcd to Investigate other college stu
dent governments carcfullv and to mod
ify the constitution to satisfy the de
mands of tho .students. Tho committee
has completed its work of investigation
and made Its report lo the students yes
terday. They have drawn un a plan,
which is similar lo that in use at tho
University of "Wisconsin and which con
tains some Interesting and coually radical
The plan Is to have a student court,
which shall decide idl difficulties arising
amongr tlio students themselves. The
court shall bo composed of four seniors,
iwo juniors and one sophomore, and It
Is expected that th's decisions of this
court will bo practically final. There
will be, however, ono appeal to tho
faculty- The facully ihough shall have
no power to reverse the decision of the
student court nor to nullify its acts, but
will be able ouly to demand a second
hearing- of the cases in question. This
plan iv In much favor among lite 'mem
bers of the unlvcrsltv and especially tho
president, as It Is thought that Buch a
court would be a vast help In the main
taining of student discipline.
The now plan also provides that no
man who Is at tho head of any student
activity shall' he a member of tho execu
tive hoard of the student body. In the
past such a -position has been the only
reouislte of the 'members of this hoard.
It was further decided that there
should be a separate board for the ap
portlonlnp of student funds, another ?or
the auditing of the different departments
of siudf-nt activity and one for tho. man
agement of athletics- There shall he a.
separate manager for' each brancli of
athlotlcM instead of one to look aftor all
of them, as has been the cane in the
Ni student of any claw shall bo al
lowed to wear awards received In high
school on the university campus. This
plan purposes to mako students ambi
tious to gain university awards.
Students who win awards in the dif
ferent netlvltle shall be given official
cards by the student hody permitting
them to wear their awards, whether thoy

w'th the Wri'ht-Otborn- .company for
I ue wi.-.tullalion of a healinjr and ven
lilalinir system at the new hih school
1.ji njr. at a special nioctin.n last night.
The matter will probably be threshed
out tn 'he courts.
MM.-, action was taken because of the
board (in Jiny thai the terms of the cou-ira-t
were not beiiig-' complied with,
rcilher in the matter of the material
"beeSfied nor in lhu eiuploymcnl-of prop-

Labor Trouble Basis.
I'"or more than a week construction
work at, the new hijrh school, both on
tii'o main contract, which is held by p.
I. Inran. and on the healing and ven
tilating coutiHCl, has beeu tied up ov
in' to a. strike of the lluihiin Trades
union over ihe eniploymeiit of non-union
si nam litters by the Wrifjhl-Osboru com
jiany. Tho board of education took the
matter in hand last Monday uiht and
has held special executive meetings ev
ery day this week. A decision to re
scind the contract was reached at 10:30
o'cloelf last night after a thorough con
sideration of a report submitted by
.James L. Chesbro of the JSJdrcdgo it
f'hesbro iirnt of iire.hil.er.ts, which has
supervision of the. building operations.
Air. Chesbro reported that he had
madeai) exhaustive investigation from
which ho could arrive at no other con
clusion but. that the YVright-Osboru
'company has failed and neglected to
perform its' com ract in many particu
lars. Tu the Jlrst place it was found
thnt, the company had brought upon tho
ground certain galvanized iron for the
air duels of tho ventilating syslcm thai
woro of poor quality and not tho kind
specified iu the contract. Tu the sec
ond place it was found that the con
tractor was proparing to install three
boilers not according to (specifications
and not of a quality essential to the
proper performance of tho contract.
Further, the architect reported that tlic
contractor bu failed lo emplov properly
trained workmen and had evinced an
utter, luck of capacity or ahllltv lo eom
ploto the contract In the specified time
These findings, coupled with the strike
troubles, the merits of which are not
discussed, are made the foundation for
the architect's recommendation that the
contract be terminated at once.
.Acting on this report, the board, as a
committee of thu whole, drew up the fol
lowing resolution, which was passed
unanimously at the regular meeting
which followed the executive session:
Kesolved. by tills board. That said
employment of the said Wright
Osborn company existing- by virtue
of that certain contract dated July
J, 1!U2, between said board and f-aid
company, be and the same is here
by terminated; and that Ihe said
Wrlght-Osborn company be notified
of this resolution and be absolutely
prohibited and prevented from In anv
manncr continuing or attempting' to !
continue aforesaid employment.
This resolution Is based on the
certillcatc of the architect which is
ncrcby referred to and made a part I
Call Special Meeting.
-As soon as the voto had been taken, a
resolution was Introduced to tho effect'
that the oulldlngs and grounds commit
tee of the board be empowered to con
sider the matter of a new contract. It
was passed and a meeting of the com
mittee was set for this morning.
.7. If. J.ane, secretary of the steam
niters' union, thanked th'; board for its
action and assured it tliat no further
trouble would be encountered Jn the
build ng of the high school so far as
the building trades unions woro con
cerned. Replying to air. Lane, Arnold
t'launue. a board member, remarked that
the action of the board was not based
on the strike trouble, bul rather on the
lact that. Improper materials and work
masisdnp hud entered Into the perform
ance of tnc conlniel. Almost before Mr.
Glaunuo could finish hio remarks a mo
tion ,or adjournment waa made and sec
onded, thereby preventing what might
have been a discussion of labor issues.
