1200 VOTES CAST ON FIRST DAY OF PROHIBITION POLL
Final Tabulation of 15 College Polls Due Then -- Wellesley, Washington, and California Will Not Vote
Although over 1200 ballots were cast yesterday on the first day of the CRIMSON's prohibition poll, it is expected that more than twice as many ballots will be cast today, when polling is extended to cover the Law, Business, Medical, and Engineering Schools.
Final results will not be made public until Thursday morning, when announcement will be made not only of prohibition sentiment at Harvard but also of the results of straw votes now being held at fourteen other colleges throughout the East, South, and Middle West.
Hope of having women's colleges and Pacific coast institutions represented in the poll dimmed yesterday when word was received from the Universities of California and Washington and from Wellesley College that straw votes would not be feasible at these institutions.
Polling places will be open from 10 to 1 o'clock for the College in Harvard and Sever Halls, for the Law School in Langdell Hall, and for the Engineering School in Pierce Hall. Business School students may cast their votes for or against prohibition at their dining halls from 12 to 1.30 o'clock, and students in the Medical School from 11.30 to 1.30 o'clock at Vanderbilt Hall.
Partial tabulation of the first returns last night indicated that although the percentage of drinkers at Harvard approximated that of other Eastern universities, interesting revelations as to reasons the student non-drinkers are abstainers will be possible when the final analysis is made Wednesday.
