Engineer Comes Out Ahead
Richard L. Guthrie, Engineering, '12,
was elected president of the Benlor
class after" "Convocattoh Thursday
Guthrlo defeated Searle F. Holmes,
who had been the only announced
candidate until Guthrie was nominat
ed on tho floor of the meeting. As
both men aro members of the Inno
cents Sonior society, and Holmes had
boon announcod as tho choice of the
Innocents, Guthrie's candidaay was
Bomowhat of a surprise, but his forces
woro well Organized and Holmes was
defoatod by a vote of 92 to 47.
Tho attendance at the meeting was

college that attended In a body. This
Is accounted for by tho fact that
Holmes had no known opposition and
little Interest had been manifested
previous to tho balloting.
