Alexander Campbell Hoagland, Jr. '50 of Elizabeth, New Jersey and Lowell House, led a field of 26 candidates for the 1950 Class Day Committee in the election held yesterday. Hoagland accumulated 202 votes.
In the order of their election, the other winners were: Dominique Homan Wyant '50 of Atlanta, Georgia and Lowell House, Armando David Mazzone '50 of Everett and the Varsity Club, Charles Warren Detjen '50 of Clayton, Missouri and Eliot House, and Anthony Ripley '50 of Pleasant Ridge, Michigan and Lowell House.
Also David Irish Coombs '50 of Louisiana, Missouri and Dunster House, Daniel A. Cronin, Jr. '50 of Lexington, Raphael David Silver '50 of Shaker Heights, Ohio and Lowell House, Thomas Cunningham Simons '50 of Oakland, California and Eliot House, and Robert Livingston Matters of New York City and Lowell House.
Harry Guild '50 and Charles W. Bailey II '50 placed eleventh and twelfth respectively and were very close behind the winners.
Elections proceeded with a simple multiple choice ballot rather than a preferential ballot. Tabulation was conducted under the Council's new temporary election procedure which forbade the presence of either candidates or their representatives in the counting room in Phillips Brooks House.
Vote counting operated smoothly and was completed by 10:20 p.m.
One candidate, Allen C. Perry '50, who did not wish to be considered in the running because he will not be in Cambridge on Class Day, received 106 votes.
Class Day, a traditional last wave to the College for Seniors, usually includes a class dinner, concerts, oratory in the classical and English languages, a dance, and concentrated efforts at unrestrained gaiety.
Old timers claim that Class Days since the Twenties have been enervated versions of the zany days when casks of "refreshing liquid" were available to the weary and footsore in the Yard and confetti wars raged in Soldiers Field.
