Humerists at Harvard may prove their absurd ability when the Lampoon opens its competitions for the literary and business departments of its board this evening. Candidates will assemble at the Lampoon Building today at 7 o'clock, entering by the sacred side door. At this meeting explanation of the work will be given together with details of the competitions.
The literary candidates will have to tax their wits to write and illustrate jokes and articles of humorous or satirical character. At regular meetings instructions will be given to help the candidates to improve their writing and drawing abilities.
Those who seek positions on the business board will have the usual work to perform. Soliciting advertisements, scouting around for subscriptions, and doing regular office work comprise most of the labors. The competition is so designed as to leave the candidate plenty of time for study and recreation.
