I ■ % I Editorials lass Meeting • • h Report on Class Meeting w Monday night the class of 1953 held its first called meet ing. It was a flop! Why was it a flop? Because class members and officers alike couldn’t get together long enough to understand the important issues that needed to be taken care of. Disorder and utter confusion reigned throughout the ten to fifteen minutes that the officers of the class tried to make a few ^ pertinent facts known. The meeting was never formally called to order and amounted to nothing more than a few jeers and cheers when each of the officers who is heading a committee for the Freshman Ball rose from his perch on some mats rolled up on the stage to deliver an unprepared address. From what we could gather, the meeting was called to inform the class about what arrangements had been made for the all-important Freshman Ball. .Nothing was put before them in form of a motion or vote. They were just told that this and that was going to he done. • u Now no one should kick about a committee taking care j f of many of. the small details that would be trivial to a class as whole, but the only word class members had in the plan ning of the affair was through the officers. J - No report whatsoever was given concerning the previous , meetings the officers had held in planning the dance. No committee appointments were made. And regardless of the fact that stories have appeared in The Battalion as often as possible concerning the dance, we would venture to say that as many as half of the freshmen at the Annex don’t know much more about the dance to take place this month than the date ... and someone had to ask about that at the meet- ing. [•.•.« Possibly no one individual is to blame for these happen ings, but the combined efforts of all the class— every indi vidual member—must be incorporated if the class of ’53 ever expects to make a success of the dance or any class function.
