Classes graduating recently fared badly in the draw for Yale tickets, result of which was announced last night by the Athletic Association. The classes of 1922, 1923, and 1924 are all well past the midpoint in the preferential list. Former members of the classes of 1925 and 1926 who are now now in college were particularly unfortunate, as they will have to wait until practically all the other applications have been filled. The complete result of the draw, as given out by Mr. C. F. Getchell, in charge of the ticket office at the Athletic Association, is as follows:
1859-1884, 1885, 1917, 1914, 1908, 1905, 1899, 1916, 1915, 1918, 1900, 1901, 1891, 1911, 1909, 1893, 1910, 1892, 1894, 1902, 1921, 1895, 1924, 1906, 1919, 1903, 1923, 1896, 1912, 1922, 1897, 1889, 1888, 1920, 1887, 1890, 1907, 1926, 1913, 1886, 1925, 1898, 1904.
Tickets Go Out Next Week
It is expected that the total number of applications from graduates will be well over the 25,000 mark. Tickets for undergraduates will be ready for delivery one week from today. Those for graduates living outside of Greater Boston will be mailed on Friday night, and those for graduates living in Boston and Cambridge will be sent out Monday night. It is therefore expected that every Harvard applicant will have received his Yale ticket by Wednesday, November 19 at the latest.
The system to be used in filling the applications is the same as that used in taking care of the applicants for Princeton tickets. First in the order of preference come undergraduates in the College. Second choice is given to men who have either graduated with the various classes, or who have attended the College with the class for at least two undergraduate years. These men will receive their tickets in the order indicated in the draw. The applications of the undergraduates in the professional schools of the University will next be filled, and lastly, the applications of graduates of the professional schools, by classes, in the same order as for the graduates of the College. In each case preference will be given to those men who have applied for a single ticket.
The drawing is carried out with perfect impartiality. A slip bearing the year of each college class whose members have applied for tickets to the Yale game is placed in a large box. The classes from 1859-1834 were grouped together in first place because the total number of applicants from the group was so small that it would not materially affect the desirability of the seats received by the other applicants. In the draw the slips were pulled out at random, and the classes given preference in the order of drawing
