ELECTIONS FOR PHI BETA KAPPA TODAY

Next Meeting Will be Annual Winter Banquet on November 26--Members from Other Colleges Welcome

The election of the first group of the Class of 1931 to Phi Beta Kappa will take place this afternoon, when the society assembles in the Faculty Room of University Hall. These elections will be confirmed afterwards at a meeting of the Graduate Board of the chapter, President Lowell directing. R. H. Phelps '30, first marshal of the Harvard Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, will preside.

With the selection of the first eight Juniors to the honored society comes the choosing of 32 Seniors, the first election taking in members of the Class of 1930 this fall. Twenty-five more Seniors will be made members of the Phi Beta Kappa in the spring; but the full quota from the Junior Class, for this year, will be chosen today.

The next meeting of Phi Beta Kappa will be the annual winter banquet, to be given in the Faculty Room of the Union on Tuesday, November 26. The chapter extends its special invitation to Phi Beta Kappa members from other colleges to come to the meeting. Keys and certificates will be presented to the new members before the banquet.

In addition to Phelps, the following members will be present at the meeting; E. C. Berkeley '30, second marshal; D. P. Adams '30; M. V. Anastos '30; F. Mcm Chambers '30; Sal Goldwasser '30; E. M. Lipman '30; and R. L. Phillbrick '30. As explained in a previous article by Phelps the selection will be based almost entirely on grades recorded at the Dean's Office. Only in a case when there is very close competition between two candidates will outside activities and personality be considered.
