Allen Leads Juniors in Student Council Poll; Harding Wins Sophomore Election

SEVENTEEN NOMINEES

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Winner of the Sophomore election by 12 votes, Francis Austin Harding, Jr. of Chestnut Hill polled 132 out of 415 votes cast in Monday's Student Council election.

Behind Harding, Richard Howard Sullivan of Marietta, Ohio and Joseph Spence Harvin of Fort Worth, Texas, placed second and third to also earn places on the new 1937-38 Student Council.

Harvin, with 106 votes, earned his place by a precarious margin of a single vote over Charles Lee Burwell of Millwood, Virginia, while Richard Peter Hedblom of Cambridge, last year's Freshman president, was fifth with 95 votes, and Cleveland Amory of Milton was sixth with 82.

Harding was vice-president of the Freshman Class last year, captain of the Yardling hockey team, and a football and hockey letterman this year. He was on the first line on the six which won the Quadrangular League Championship this winter.

Both Sullivan and Harvin are on their respective House Committees, the former in Lowell, the latter at Leverett. Harvin was also on the Union Committee and chairman of the Jubilee Committee in his Freshman year, while Sullivan was a member of the Reviews Committee.
