1937's Senior Class Album got under way yesterday with the appointment of a nominating committee by the Student Council to pick men to run in elections on Monday, April 27. This committee is headed by James B. Hallett '37, and includes Walter H. Page, II '37 and William II. Schmidt, Jr. '37.
The nominations of these three men will be announced next Tuesday, with all additions by petition of 25 members of the Class due the following day; Elections follow the next week.
Five men will be chosen from the list of nominations, one of whom will be picked chairman by the members. The new Committee will then draw up plans for the 1937 year book which will go to the press 12 months later. In former years, this Committee was chosen during the fall of the Senior year, but last year the system was changed in order that work might commence at an earlier date.
Hallett is a member of the CRIMSON Editorial Board; Page is Varsity football manager; and Schmidt is a member of the track squad and vice-president of Phillips Brooks House.
At a meeting of the Council to be held this evening the second half of the disputed new constitution will come up for ratification. Sections on specific duties and powers will have to be thrashed out, and rules for running elections must be decided.
Most discussion will undoubtedly arise over Sections 4 and 5 of Article IV, "Powers," dealing with student discipline. Section 4 as proposed now reads, "The Council shall have the power to investigate any infringement of the College rules, for the purpose of recommendation to the College officials," Section 5 "to summon before it individual students for questioning."
The possibility of having disciplinary powers over individual students was purposely omitted from the preamble of the new document, and it is doubtful if these two clauses will be retained.
