2. The committee have unanimously chosen Mr. Charles R. Saunders as chairman of the meeting.
3. All members of the class, past and present, who are now candidates for the degree of A. B., will be allowed to vote, and will be eligible for office.
4. Every 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.
5. 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.
6.The first ballot for every officer shall be informal; after every alternate formal ballot, viz., the 2d, 4th, 6th, and c., the candidate having the smallest number of votes, and all other candidates having less than ten votes, shall be dropped.

CLASS DAY COMMITTEE,
The committee have appointed a clerk and tellers, whose names will be published before the meeting. The committee 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.
In conclusion, the committee beg every man in Eighty-Four to remember that the officers elected, however contrary to his own wishes, will represent the desire of the majority of the class; and that therefore it is only gentlemanly to acquiesce in the result of the elections with the best possible grace, and do everything in his power to make the class day of Eighty-Four a pleasant and successful one.
