continuous and fervent support of the Comediantes and the BCom, and to honor him by placing in the BCom the phrase: "Founded by Everett W. Hesse." The honoring phrase is to appear permanently in addition to the identifying material on the inside cover of the BCom below its title. The entire attendance at the meeting unanimously approved the motion by acclamation. Finally, Professor Ebersole urged those attending the luncheon to submit papers to the new chairman for the Spanish 3 meeting in Chicago for 1973. Prior to the Spanish 3: Comedia meeting of the MLA, the Executive Committee met and designated Professor Vern G. WUHamsen as the chairman of the Bibliography and Research Committee, and the B&R Com. was charged with the task of identifying and carrying through its next project. The Spanish 3 session was held at 3:00 p.m. in the Gramercy A Room of the New York Hilton. The meeting was chaired by A. V. Ebersole, with John Lihani as secretary. Of those attending the session, one hundred twenty-two signed the attendance sheets. The overall attendance was estimated at 180. During the initial business session, in accordance with the MLA administrative convention missives urging sections to democratize themselves and their committees, the chairman announced that the committees of Spanish 3 had agreed to establish a new rotating sequence for the B&R Committee membership . The rotating membership of the B&R Com. will be instituted in 1974.
