In tho opening game between
the juniors ami the freshmen, the
freshmen sprang a surprise on
their opponents ami hung a large,
sized defeat on them, winning by
a Hcore of 28 to 18. The young
sters had evidently practiced a
great deal more than the juniors,
as they lead the light all the way
"through the game.
Tho BcnloVs badly outclassed
the sophomores in their contest
and were able to throw baskets at

pretne court Interpeted the state prim

rendered. An opinion was handed
down in the suit denying the right o,
the Roosevelt electors to preferential
place on the ballot; also in the case
of A. M. Morrissey, who sought ii
vain to prevent the Progressives fron
going on the ballot at all.
The syllabus in the ease won by th(
Taft electors Is as follows:
"Persons nominated by a political
party al a primary election as candi
dates for presidential electors, are
nominated, not as electors to vote foi
any particular candidate then known
but to vote, if elected, for the persons
who may subsequently be nomlnatec
by the national convention of suet,
party as candidates for the offices ol
president and vice president.
"It Is a well settled rule at coinmor
law that if a person, while occupying
one otllce, accepts another Incompati
ble with the first, he Ipso facto vacates
the first otllce. and his title thereto is
thereby terminated without any other
act or proceeding. .
"In such a case one of the tests ol
lncompatibllltv Is whether the nature!
and duties of the two offices are such
as to render it Improper, from consid
erations of public policy, for the In
cumbent to retain both.
"Where It appears that acts or
events have occurred rendering an of
fice vacnnt, the authority having the
power to fill such vacancy may treat
the ofllco as vacant and proceed to
elect or appoint, according to the form
of law. another to fill It.
"Dy tho sfcittttes of this state every
voter has the right by a single cross,
or by one manipulation of the lever ol

ticket for the candidates of his party.
