EVEN MORE DISTURBING than the choice of George Plimpton as Class Day speaker was the Class Marshalls' decision this year to involve the senior class only minimally in the selection process. Their undemocratic method, in which seniors were not permitted to vote, found, in Goerge Plimpton, a frivolous, jet-setting member of America's social elite. That Plimpton belongs to the Porcellian--a club that has never admitted a black, let alone a woman--indicates how many seniors will feel comfortable with Plimpton's wisdom on Class Day. We hope that in the future the Class Marshalls will act with greater awareness of their role as representatives of the entire senior class.
