BERKELEY, Feb. 10. The surgents" at the University California are pleased' today. they have won the first round In their battle against "autocratic" student government. They now have a week to rest before m?xt Wednesday, when an election will be held to amend the student constitution. Approximately one-eighth of the entire student body. 1039 men and co-eds, signed petitions circulated by the recall committee. These pe titions were filed yesterday with Donald Thorburn, secretary of the associated students. A mixture of opinion, however, endangers the success of the pro posed measure. Representing the sentiments of a large faction of the student body, Kenneth Priestly, student editor, comments -on the situation in this morning's Daily Californian. as follows: "The first section of the proposer amendment facilitates the remova' of incompetents by a, general re. call election, by providing that petitions to this end may be filed at any time. This is a step which should have been taken long ago. unfortunately the incubus of personal animosity has bitten some of the advocates of the second section, who desire , to oust certain council chairmen, who have incurred the enmities of their coun cils, but have been justified in the eyes of the campus. This section. providing for the removal of council chairmen by a vote of two- thirds of their councils, would keep student affairs in constant hot water. This provision would strip the executive committee of power ana .vest it in the councils, which completely reverses the theory un der which the 'present system of government works. , "Council chairmen may sbe tant fllnnA maVoa th. eartnnA n n ... ! necessary loophole through which TWELVET-STORY BUILDING TO BE CITY'S HIGHEST "BERKELEY,' Feb. 10.

Elwood Squires, chairman of the committee. "We are looking up the past histories and records of all the members of the executive committee," Squires stated today, "We are inquiring of all the students possible to reach their ouinions regarding the capabilities of each student official.
