At their first meeting, Tuesday, the 1937 Class Day Committee agreed upon plans for the selection of the Ivy Orator who will give the Oration at the Stadium exercises on Class Day, Wednesday, June 23.
Candidates, it was announced, must register at the Class Day headquarters in Lehman Hall before Saturday, April 3. Each candidate will be asked to state any experience or qualifications he may have which bear on his ability to fill this position. He will be given an opportunity to submit with his registration any manuscript or copy of past work or proposed work that he may wish to have considered as evidence of his ability.
These registrations and manuscripts will be studied by the Class Day Committee Wednesday, April 24; five or more of the candidates will be chosen from this list and will deliver a five minute trial Ivy Oration between April 14 and 28 on a day to be chosen later.
One man and a substitute will be chosen from the above by a committee to consist of the First and Second Marshals, members of the Class Day Committee, Frederick, C. Packard '20, assistant professor of Public Speaking, and William G. Morse '99, purchasing agent.
