- Th A'thle tic 'board election for 1908
Isa matter of history. Prom tho ex
citement created during the past few
days over' the political situation, it
was generally believed that today's
election would be .rather a "warm af
fair." However,, .things passed off
rather, ..smoothly and those Who pre
viously showed a pugnacious nature
woreryery calm and not even a sign
jof 'strife "was seen on the political
horizon;; fThe polls 'wer.e opened at
St 30, but there was no rush of. voters.
At-nottlme during the day were the
judges'in ran'y woy? crowded for time
and voting was-generally slow. There
wereV-77rR. meu who were eligible to
vote; and of this number C88 voted.
This shows that the candidates elect
ed receh&edn a. fair-representation of
of student votc3. The following men
were elected as members of the board
for 1908-09: Collins, Cherrington,
Harvey, -APjcttnv-WaJsh. Mr. Harvey1
received the highest-number of rotes.
The election board consisted of Drs.
M axoy and Bolton and Captain -Wor-kizer.
