Senior Class Meeting.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The senior class meeting which took place last night in Upper Massachusetts was called to order by President Trafford. The secretary's report was read and accepted. The report of Mr. Codman, the manager of the '89 crew, followed, showing a creditable reduction in the class debt, notwithstanding the purchase of a new shell. The next business was the election of officers. Mr. Trafford was re-elected president by acclamation. Mr. Storrow was unanimously elected vice-president in place of Mr. Balch, who has left college. Mr. Parker was also re-elected secretary-treasurer by acclamation. Mr. Perkins was elected captain of the eleven, but resigned. Several other nominations were made and declined, and finally Mr. Perkins, upon being requested to reconsider his refusal, decided to accept. Mr. McPherson was re-elected captain of the nine. Messrs. Parker and Perry declined the nomination to the captaincy of the crew, and it was voted that the members of last year's crew be permitted to elect the captain for this year. A variety of motions in regard to the committee to draw up the rules and set the time for the Class Day elections were made and debated. The plan of society representation was discontinued, and the president, vice-president and secretary-treasurer were elected to this committee.

Messrs. Morse, Howe, and Ropes, being friends of the deceased, were appointed to draw up resolutions upon the death of Harry Rust Merrill. It was next voted to have a senior class dinner after Thanksgiving, and Keyes, Codman and Parker were appointed a committee to make the arrangements.

The question of the torchlight procession was the next business, and, after considerable debate, it was finally voted to join the republican procession as has been customary in past years. It was distinctly understood, nevertheless, that the action of the class did not in the least commit it to the support of the republican candidates, the object of marching being to have a good time, and not to make a political demonstration, as the matter has always been decided by the senior class in the past, and action on the part of the other classes has not been customary, it was moved that three marshals be elected by ballot to make the necessary arrangements.

Trafford received 70 votes; Keys, 68; Darling, 53; Davis, 36; Storrow, 29; scattering 71. Word was received from Captain Sears that football men could march, but could not be marshals; accordingly Keyes, Darling and Storrow were declared elected. The meeting was then adjourned.
