Abstract:There appears to be fairly widespread support in the Society for the proposal to have prospective officers and members of the Council announce the "platform" on which they stand for election. In the following article, Professor Chapman, who has just completed four years of service as president of the Society, gives his views of the dangers of such a proposal and the false premises upon which it is based. Irrespective of the individual's personal views on this subject he should read Professor Chapman's article. The future of the Society, like that of any other democratic institution, is conditioned by the interest and knowledge of the electorate.
