Nine new candidates for election to Senior Class offices were made public yesterday by G. W. Gibson '31, chairman of the nominating committee. At the same time it was announced that five men have resigned their original nominations. The new candidates are as follows: For Marshall, John Bright Garrison, of West Newton, Victor Matthews Harding, of Hubbard Woods, Illinois, and Arthur Whitfield Huguley, of Swampscott; for Orator, Samuel Kunen, of Marlboro; for Chorister, Richard Gardiner Edwards, of Swampscott; for Odist, Arthur John Joseph Bohn, of Saint Louis Missouri, and Arnold Louis Kowarsky, of Brooklyn, New York; for Album Committee, John Handy Henshaw, of Rye, New York, and Robert Westervelt Chasteney, of Summit, New Jersey.
These men, nominated by petitions signed by 25 more members of the Class of 1931, complete the ballot which will be used in this week's elections, which take place tomorrow and Thursday mornings.
The five men who resigned from their nominations are:
For chorister, Francis Stacy Holmes of West Roxbury; for Ivy Orator, Ogden White, of Oyster Bay, Long Island; for Senior Class Album Committee, Geoffrey Parsons, Jr., of Rye, New York, Frank Edwin Remick, of Quincy, and Edward Kuhn Straus, of New York City.
Horace Abram Rigg, Jr. of Wayne, Pennsylvania has been nominated for Poet instead of Odist.
At the same time J. N. Trainer, Jr. '31, of the Freshman Halls, in order to acquaint the Freshman Class with the House Plan.
Dropped Freshmen, according to the announcement yesterday, will not be admitted to the Houses. This policy has been adopted because only some of the dropped Freshmen secure regular tutorial instruction, and, of those who do, very few can profit from such instruction because of the lack of background for independent work and also the fact that most of their time must of necessity be given to establishing satisfactory records in courses in order to remain in College. Also many of the dropped Freshmen, because of deficiencies, are carrying five or six courses which leaves little time for tutorial work. Since the Houses are intimately associated with the tutorial system and are intended for upperclassmen, it is felt by the authorities that the dropped Freshman is out of place there
