The committee of arrangements for the class election recommend the following rules for the government of the meeting:
The meeting will be held Monday, November 20th, at 7 P. M., in Boylston Hall.
The committee have unanimously chosen Mr. Edward Cummings as chairman of the meeting. This choice, however, is subject to the approval of the class.
All members of the class, past and present, who are now candidates for the degree of A. B. will be allowed to vote and be eligible for office.
Each officer is to be voted for separately. All nominations shall be made viva voce, and shall be recorded on the blackboard by the clerk, but votes cast for persons not so nominated shall be counted. Speeches for or against candidates are unconditionally prohibited.
All voting shall be secret, check-lists being used. The class shall vote in eight equal sections, at eight separate polls. Voting by proxy shall not be allowed. Whenever a candidate receives a majority of votes cast on a formal ballot he shall be declared elected.
The first ballot for each officer shall be informal; after each successive ballot the candidate having the least number of votes, and all candidates having less than ten votes shall be dropped, until the candidates are reduced to three.
When there are three candidates two ballots shall be taken besides the informal ballot; the candidate polling the smallest number of votes on the second shall be dropped.
The committee have appointed, subject to the approval of the class, a clerk and tellers, whose names will be published before the meeting.
The class officers will be elected in the following order: Secretary, first marshal, second marshal, third marshal, orator, poet, odist, ivy orator, chorister, class day committee, class committee.
The committee further desire to state to the class that no societies or other organizations have held caucuses or made up tickets, and that the delegates have given their pledge, as representing the three sections of the class, that no such action shall be taken.
