Leo Francis Daley of Andover was elected First Marshal of the Senior class yesterday by a large majority. Clement Duane Coady of West Newton, and John Randolph Burke, of Milton, were chosen Second and Third Marshals respectively. The other officers elected on the first 1927 ballot were Frederick Vanderbilt Field, of New York City Treasurer, Dwight Westley Chapman Jr., of Wilmette, Illinois, Orator; Geoffrey McNair Gates, of Elyria, Ohio, Ivy Orator; Pierpont Stackpole, of Milton, Poet; Ambrose Francis Keeley, of Fall River, Odist; Richard Thomas Flood, of Brookline, Chorister.

Daley's vote of 350 was not only the greatest total vote, but also the greatest majority for First Marshal. Coady received 287 votes for the Second Marshal's position. He is Captain of the football team, a letter man in hockey and baseball, and a member of the Student Council. J. R. Burke, manager of the football team, Vice--President of the Student Council and President of the Minor Sports Committee, came next with 226 votes. Following is a list of the other nominees and the votes they received: E. C. Haggerty, 197; J. D. Hitch, 172; B. L. Kilgour Jr., 130; W. P. Ellison, 116.
For treasurer, Field, former President of the CRIMSON, Chairman of the Budget Committee, Treasurer of the Student Council, and Vice-President of the Phillips Brooks House Committee, led his only competitor by a 150 vote margin.
Closest Contest for Poet
The closest contest of the whole election was for the position of poet, which Stackpole got over Kazanjian by only 30 votes.
The total number of ballots cast, 519 was much larger than last year. The vote represents a large majority of the 700 students in the class of 1927. Only five ballots were thrown out, as compared with 51 in last year's elections.
