No other thought than a candidate's fitness and merit for office should govern the elections tonight of Class Day officers from Ninety-four. It is not for two or three men to settle between them which one shall accept a nomination, for that is not fair to the Class. The voters themselves should decide between several candidates and not the candidates themselves. Much more unfair is it for any one clique or combination of cliques to interpret the sentiment of the class and to use their influence to keep out of prominence men who have at least a claim to be considered. To secure anything like a real expression of the wishes of Ninety-four in regard to her officers, there should be as many nominations as there are men who deserve recognition for the services they have done to the class and University. And then from these nominations let each voter be man enough to cast his ballot according to his own conviction and that alone.
