THE VOLANTE. ------------------- VERMILLION, SOUTH DAKOTA. ------------------- Published monthly by the Students' Association of the University of Dakota. ------------------- ------------------- BOARD OF EDITORS: T. E. POWERS Editor-in-Chief. FRED STAFF EditorialS. FRANK BLAIR, Literary aud Miscellany. GEO. DUDLEY College Notes and Exchanges. THOS. GARY, GERTRUDE BERTLESON, Personals and Locals. W. M. PETERSON, Business Manager. GEO. DUDLEY, Assistant Business Managers. E. F. PETERSON, ------------------- EDITORIAL. ------------------- At this time a few suggestions in regard to the relation of the Students Association with the VOLANTE will certainly not be out of place. At a meeting last term an amendment was made which placed the responsibility of controling the business of VOLANTE entirely in the hands of the business manager. This we regard as a very wise move for as has often been said, "what is everybody's business is nobody's business." On the event of the resignation of Mr. Peterson as business manager, some parties were still farther in favor of making the office of business manager and editor in chief of the same, that is giving the entire control of the paper to the latter officer and allowing him to choose all other officers. Now it is easier to make enactments than to unmake them, and as the college paper is in reality, under the present regime published by tlie students association, they should be somewhat careful about delegating too much power to any single individual. We would also urge a few reasons for this position. First in order to make the paper a success we must have the support of the student body and the closer the connection between the Association and VOLANTE the greater interest may be expected. Then in connection with the proposition to vest supreme authority in the editor in chief it was also propose to stimulate him by allowing him all the paper earned above its expenses. With the present outlook that the paper cannot fail to pay expenses this would be a great incentive to an editor for, though the honor of the position is supposed in most cases to be sufficient inducement to warrant the best exertions of the person invested with this honor, money is never an unwelcome guest. Still it hardly seems fair that one person should be paid for his time while five others work for practice or glory, and we admit some anxiety as to whether the associate editors might not think that the man who gets the money should do the work. With these suggestions we hope the Association will consider well the result before taking too rash a step. -------------------- During the greater part of last week the University was honored by the presence of the State board of regents who were here in session. The students were very much pleased by the encouraging remarks of Judge Edgerton and Prof. Free and if we may believe reports the board was as much pleased with the students and their work. From the remarks of President Grose we glean that if the University does not receive a liberal appropriation it will be the fault of the legislature, not of the board.
