\                              eleotion of a representative of the High School Teachers to the
T Senate of the University.
While no formal action waa taken the feeling waa expressed
that the best course would probably be to submit to the whole body
of High School Principals and Teachers the names of the seven
teachers for whom votes had been received, the former request being
treated merely as one for nominations. The desirability of proceeding
f in this way, it was thought, might be suggested to Dr* Bobinson, and
the feeling waa expressed that if he accepted the suggestion and
' acted upon it he would be placing the Senate under still further
j obligation.
The meeting then adjourned.
