Chester Scott Howland will deliver
an illustrated lecture on "Whaling in
the Seven Seas," at 8:30 p.m. today
in Hill Auditorium, as the fourth lec-
ture program of the Oratorical Asso-
Mr. Howland's talk will consist of
a ,moving picture story of an aactual
whale hunt in the Indian Ocean. He
will supplement his lecture with ex-
planations of the various phases of
the hunt.
Born the son of a New England
whaling captain, Mr. Howland "knows
his subject and tells it in an extreme-
ly interesting fashion."
The pictures of the whale hunt
were made by expert cameramen at a
cost of $50,000. The reels begin with
views of the ship "C. W. Morgan"
leaping the harbor at New Bedford,
Mass., and show every phase of the
whale hunt, concluding with a scene
of the master of the vessel writing
the events of the voyage in his wea-
ther-beaten "Log Book."
Tickets for the lecture will be on
sale at Wahr's Bookstore. After 5 p.m.
however, they will be placed on sale at
the Hill Auditorium box-office. They
are priced at 50 and 75 cents.
Albert Howson, director of censor-
ship of Warner Brothers Pictures,
Inc., said of Mr. Howland's lecture: "A
most engaging personality, his slides
and motion pictures, especially the
latter, are truly remarkable. His au-
dience was enthralled."
"His slidesntere very interesting
and his motion pictures were positive-
ly thrilling. He wove in with his ex-
pert knowledge of whaling a great
deal that possessed much historic and
literary interest," says Dr. Walter
Haviland, headmaster of Friend'sj
School, Philadelphia.
The fifth speaker on the lecture
program of the Oratorical Association.
will be Lowell Thomas, radio com-
mentator, who will speak here Dec. 13.

Council Declares Lack Of
Interest Due To Change
In Electoral System
Frederick Buesser, Delta Tau Delta
was elected president of the sopho-
more class in the literary college yes-
terday in what was termed by elec-
tion officials as one of the lightest
votes in the history of the college.
Buesser defeated Tom Oyler, Beta
Theta Pi, 40 to 23.
John Mann, Trigon, was elected
chairman of the Soph Prom with a
25-vote majority over Eugene Reich-
ert, Independent, 43 to 18.
Members of the Under1graduate
Council last night attributed the light
vote to the fact that members of the
class evidently were not interested in
the officers of the class except under
the old system by which jobs were
distributed as a reward for voting.
Carl Hilty, president of the Council,
said that some further statement
would be made in a few days.
John B. Spriggs was elected presi-
dent of the junior class in the Col-
lege of Pharmacy in the election held
yesterday afternoon. Other officers
of the class who received majorities
in the seven-vote election are Don
Hill, vice-president; Jean Kelso, sec-
retary; and Richard H. Gerkensmey-
er, J-Hoprepresentative.
Medical School freshmen elected
Carl Savage president of the class by
a 14-vote majority over Rod Howell,
54 to 40. Louis Doerr, Jr., was elected
vice-president of the class over Sol
Selevan by the same vote. L. R. Bur-
ton beat out John Pierpont for the
secretaryship 49 to 45. Emil M. Is-
berg received a majority of 32 to get
the class office of treasurer over Ed
Stein, 63 to 29. The first-year posi-
tion on the Honor Council went to
Richard Ashley, who defeated his
rival, Slaw, 57 to 37. An 11-vote ma-
jority gave the second year position
on the Honor Council to Godfrey
Stobbe. He received 52 votes in the
election and Ken Berkaw, running for
the same office, got 41 votes.
At a meeting of the Forestry Club
held last night officers of the senior
and junior classes of the school were
unanimously elected. In the senior
class, Willard Hildebrand was chosen
president, John Langenbach, vice-
president; Norbert Gormann, secre-
tary; and Warren Roberts, treasurer.
The officers of the junior class for
the year will be Robert Edgar, presi-
dent; Ralph Meavis, vice-president;
Dean Roland, secretary; Horace Nix-
on, treasurer; and J. Kirkwood Whal-
ey, J-Hop representative.
