Council Alters Election Procedure, Discusses Constitution, '52 Dance

University Considers Navy Oath Action

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Amended election procedures for use in next week's Class Day Committee election were adopted by an 8 to 2 vote at the Student Council's weekly meeting last night.

The new set of rules specify that tabulation of the votes be confined to two rooms in Phillips Brooks House; that only House and Council election committeemen and two CRIMSON representatives be present in the rooms where counting is taking place; that candidates for election and their representatives be prevented from handling ballots at any times; and that no results be announced until a final result has been reached.

The Council initiated the election reform, to be effective until the new Council constitution goes into operation, largely as a result of very vocal complaints raised against the handling of the 1950 Permanent Class Committee Elections.

NROTC Pledge

Earlier at last night's meeting, Council President Edward F. Burke '50 reported that University officials are considering taking action to secure elimination of objectionable parts of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps loyalty pledge.

Burke and Roy M. Goodman '51, Council treasurer, met with President Conant and Provost Buck Friday to discuss the NROTC oath.

Discussion of the Brynteson-Raushenbush report on seven phases of Student Council activities resulted in few major objections to the suggestions submitted. The report will be the basis for the work of a Council committee which will soon draft a new Council constitution.

The Council also voted 9 to 1 to lay out $310 as capital for a Class of 1952 dance April 28.

Constitutions for the Playwrights Group and the Railroad Club were unanimously approved.

Dominique H. Wyant '50, co-chairman of the committee to report on the "Whole Man," resigned his Council seat because of academic pressure. He will continue his "Whole Man" research, however.
