The Tufts College Chapter of the Society of the Sigma Xi was formally installed by the national officers of the society on April 2. The day's activities began with an academic procession and convocation, attended by the Tufts College faculty and student body as well as by the national officers and delegates from chapters in many other institutions. At the convocation exercises Dr. Leonard Carmichael, president of the college and member of Sigma Xi, gave a brief history of scientific research at the college. Dr. George Baitsell, of Yale University, national secretary; Dr. Harlow Shapley, of Harvard University, national president, and Dr. Edward Ellery, of Union College, past national president, were introduced and presented interesting accounts of the growth and aims of the Society of the Sigma Xi.
