resentation of the student body by
a select group, was made yesterday

At the sametime, Hartwig said,

choice of officers from all-campus
To Be Effective At Once.
The new plan will be effective
immediately. Heretofore, all stu-
dents were members of the associa-
tion, represented by four students,
who together with faculty members
composed the Oratorical board.
In announcing the reorganization
and adoption of the new Constitu-
tion, Hartwig said that the change
was effected because it was believed'

president, secretary, business man-
ager, the head of the department
of speech, three faculty members

Hoover Describes Organization
as Beautiful Flower of
American Spirit.'
WASHINGTON, May 21.--(/P)-
The American Red Cross, swift
courier of mercy to those. in dis-
tress, tonight celebrated its fiftietht
anniversary at a dinner attended
by President Hoover and other not-
ables. k
I In an address, President Hoover
paid high tribute to the founders1

of the American spirit and the
American democracy."

"Although we can make no pre-
dictions regarding the size of next
year's freshman class, the number
of applications is very encourag-
ing," said Mr. Smith yesterday. He
attributed the unusual increase to
the fact that this year, for the
time, applications have been re-
ceived from students not yet grad-
uated from high school, a new
form having been drawn up to per-
mit tabulation of grades - for 'the
second semester of the senior year
in high school after the blank has
.been sent in to the office here.
A letter explaining the details of
the new system was sent to the
principals of approximately 600 ac-
credited high schools throughout
the state last January, giving pos-
sible entering students the oppor-
tunity of sending in their applica-
tion blanks upon completion of the
first ?semester of their senior year
in high school.
Mr. Smith stated that as many as
99 applications had been received
from one 'preparatory school, this
number, however, being far above
the average.
