An Undergraduates' Economics Society will be organized at a meeting to be held in the Trophy Room of the Union this evening at 8.15 o'clock. Professor E. E. Day p. '09 of the Department of Economics, who has studied societies of this sort at other universities, will speak on the advantages of such an organization from the instructor's point of view. L. G. Burgevin '15 will be the second speaker, taking up the advantages of the society to undergraduates. Following these speeches there will be one or two short informal talks and then action will be taken in regard to a permanent organization. The meeting will be open only to undergraduates enrolled in Economic courses in the College.
The Society plans to hold meetings fortnightly, at which there will be speeches, debates, informal discussions and frequent talks by prominent economic authorities. Occasional activities of a more social nature will also form a part of the program.
The society should be of immense benefit to undergraduates who are interested in economics, inasmuch as it will afford an opportunity for a discussion of economic questions free from the usual class room restraint.
