Scholastic Proficiency Is Basis of Appointments to the Board

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The election of six new members to the editorial board of the Harvard Business Review was announced last night by J. D. Jameson, Chairman of the Review. From the class which entered at mid-years last winter, Henry Gardiner Symonds, of Hinsdale, Illinois, Sidney A. Swenrud, of Northwood, Iowa, Osgood Stevens Lovekin, of Riversdale, California, have been elected, and from the regular class which entered last September, Edmund Philip Learned, of Lawrence, Kansas, Harry Gay Anderson, of Waterbury, Conn., and Henry Traugott Dunker '25, of Davenport, Iowa.

Handicapped by Short Period

In obtaining the continuity that is necessary for the effective operation of an organization of this sort, the Board is handicapped by the fact that the men from whom its editors must be drawn are in school only two years.

As originally organized, an entirely new board went in each September, but the lack of experience from which it necessarily suffered was so great a handicap as to make some change necessary. The first step in modifying this complete hiatus between the retiring and incoming boards was to elect three men in March who belonged to the small class that had entered after the previous mid-year period. To strengthen further the continuity thus established, it was decided this year to take on three men from the regular class after their first term. Positions on the board are now held by the three men from March to march, and 17 from September to June, three of whom are taken on in the previous March to give them added experience. As in the case of the Law Review the sole criterion for membership on the board is scholastic standing.
