With over 60 Undergraduates present, the first meeting of the new Harvard Yacht Club was held in Adams House last night, at which a constitution was adopted and plans for this Spring discussed.
Temporarily continued in office were the officers of the old, unofficial group, with Chandler Hovey, Jr. '39 as Commodore, Edward B. Hutton '39 as Vice-Commodore and James A. Rousmaniere '40 Secretary-Treasurer.
Initiation fees were set and plans made for a financial campaign among the Undergraduates, with plans for the purchase of dinghies following Spring Vacation. A committee to investigate the dinghy situation was named, including the three officers and Harris S. Squibb '40 and John Richards '40.
