SALE OF EXTRA TICKETS FOR CLASS DAY.
As but few tickets to the theatre and tree are left, the committee has been obliged to make it a rule that no more than two Sanders, four Tree or five Memorial tickets will be sold to one person. First come, first served, will be the rule. Applications when not made in person must be by written order. The committee have determined on a price sufficient in their opinion to make all purchases bona fide, and at the same time to place the tickets within the reach of all.
The committee have already discovered that notwithstanding their urgent and apparently reasonable request about the disposition of tickets, a member of the class has seen fit to place on sale at a store in Cambridge sundry Memorial and yard tickets, to be sold to any one who cared to buy them. The committee, rather than allow this, saw fit to purchase them at a price far above their value; and they would now beg every member of the class who is contemplating any like action, to consider whether he ought to place the interests of his own pocket before the interests of his class. If a senior has any extra tickets which he cannot use, let him sell them to members of the class at the fair price adopted by the committee, and not put them on sale at a place where everybody who may take a fancy to buy them may do so.
This last is hardly the way to make the day truly a senior's day, and thus it acts directly contrary to the committee's earnest endeavors to have the pleasures of the day confined to friends of the seniors, in college and out. The committee sincerely trust such an incident will not occur. They would say in this connection, that the owners of the store in question, on having the matter put to them in this light, voluntarily agreed to take no more tickets on sale, and the committee would regard it a favor if other storekeepers in Cambridge would kindly take the same step.
