In connection with the certification of the election of members as
stated above, thepolicy of determining the "personnel for election"
adopted by the Committee on Elections, should be explained, You will recallthi
the Report of the Committee of Fifteen provides that ”at the expiration
of any term, a member shall be ineligibel for reelection until one year
has passed." This provision the Committee on Elections interpreted to
apply to "terms" as prescribed in the Reprot of the Committee of Fifteen,
but not to "unexpired terms”, regardless of whether such unexpired terms are
filled by appointment or by election. The Committee felt that to bar persons
from election after having served for short periods would work an injustice
in many cases.

It should probably also be reported that three votes were sent to
the Committee without the signatures of the voters and five were sent a day p
late. These ballots were therefore not counted.
Sincarely yours.
