The annual election of officers of the Dining Association is soon to be held. Already the request for nominations has been posted. This request should receive a hearty response. For the success of the management of the Hall depends in no small degree on the officers of the association, - a circumstance which members have never realized as fully as they ought. A year ago very good votes were polled, it is true; but we hope to see larger votes still at the coming elections. Every member of the dining association is personally concerned, and should so consider himself. The nominations, then, should be made thoughtfully and seriously, and at the election the votes should be cast with as much care. The hall has certainly prospered the last year or two; but it needs good conscientious officers to secure for it future prosperity. To the present officers credit is due; may the future officers be such as to win credit also.
