Between twelve and thirteen hundred men have signed for the Republican procession next Tuesday, in addition to about nine hundred men from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, three hundred from Boston University, and two hundred from Tufts. The Freshmen are far behind all the other classes in the number of signatures, partly because of their lack of class organization, and they are therefore especially urged to sign at once for uniforms. It is also hoped that all who can will pay for their shingles as soon as possible, in order to defray the various expenses of the club.
The procession, which will be headed by a brass band composed of thirty Harvard men, will be accompanied by the football team in a tallyho, and John the Orangeman, with his cart and donkey, on a truck. The officers of the Republican clubs of the four institutions will also ride, probably in open carriages.
