The student self-government board resigned in a body, in order to force a new constitution that would meet the needs of a larger college.  The constitution as adopted provided for a legislative assembly and executive council to replace the former mass meetings. A new elected office, chief justice, was created when the charter of Students' Association was ratified by the student body on May 14, 1924, and approved by the faculty. The duty of the chief justice was "to call and preside at all sessions of the Court, and to perform all other duties pertaining to the office of Chief Justice."
