A MEETING of the Sophomore Class was held on Friday, the 6th inst., to consider the affairs of the class as regards boating. After the meeting was called to order, Mr. Vanduzer, the assistant treasurer of the H. U. B. C., made a few remarks concerning the finances, of the club and most earnestly urged the Sophomores to pay their debt to it as soon as possible. Mr. Goodwin, the captain of the University, explained how the debt had arisen, and joined with Mr. Vanduzer in urging the class immediately to collect sufficient money to pay it.
It appears that the crews of the Senior, Junior, and Sophomore classes are all in debt to the University, the largest amount that is owed being three hundred and fifty dollars, and the smallest one hundred and fifty. The Sophomores have been asked for the money before the others because theirs is the largest debt
Several men having spoken in favor of paying the debt by making an assessment of a certain sum on each man in the class, and as this method seemed preferable to the usual one of trusting to the liberality of a small number, it was voted that each man should be asked to pay two dollars, this amount being considered sufficient to meet the indebtedness.
It was then voted to enter a crew at the spring races.
When the boating matters had been decided, Mr. Morgan, of the Committee appointed to manage the class supper, read a letter from the proprietor of the American House of Boston, in which he said that he would furnish the supper for the class "provided they would not forget their position as gentlemen." Mr. Morgan said that the Committee had met with the greatest difficulty in getting any one to prepare the supper, both Parker's and the Revere refusing to do so because of the disgraceful conduct of the last two Sophomore classes, and that it is to be hoped that '76 may not forget themselves, even though it is their first supper.
It was voted to have the supper this evening.
