1921 CHANGES CONSTITUTION
216-16 VOTE AT SMOKER REFORMS METHOD OF NOMINATING CLASS OFFICERS.
At its second smoker of the year last evening, the Sophomore Class ratified the proposed amendment to the constitution by a vote of 216 to 16. The amendment concerns the method of class elections and was suggested by the Student Council at its meeting of Feb. 19. Under the former system, the class officers for the Sophomore and Junior years were nominated by petition from the class, while additional nominations were later made by the officers of the previous year. With the new amendment, the order of nomination is reversed; the officers are first nominated by the class officers, and additional candidates may later be suggested by petition.
J. N. Borland '21, president of the class, read the proposed amendment, after which the voting took place. He also made a short address in which he urged a larger attendance at the University baseball games.
