Art Association's Anual Exhibit on in Library Hall -Many Beautiful Creations of the Brush. The annual exhibit of prize pic tures held bv the Art Association was opened on tho evening of Dec. 26, and'wlli extend until Jan. 10. The dlspiay of pictures this year Is by far tho most complete and boauti jul or any heretofore attempted, and art lovers in the city are now be ginning to realize what is offered to them for their enjoyment and in struction. The collection comprises about eighty pictures direct from the Pan American Exposition which have tnken prizes and received honorable mention by the most noted critics of the dav, and in addition many pieces from our own state and city. Furthermore- there is a very choico and elegant display of china painting. The last week, during the Teach er'f. Association has been a busy one, and the art hall lias been thronged all div with sightseers, a large num ber being from out of the city. Al most every dav since the exhibition oponed there has been talks on art and a review and discussions of tho pictures by prominent people of the city pbo the University. Orlo of tho most conspicuous pic tures Is tho painting "Truth", which Is the first to greet the visitors' eyis as they enter the gallorv. Tho fe male figure rests her two hands on a flaming sword and serins to bo em erging from the darkness and shadow behind. Tho effect Is lmpresslvo and solemn. A heautiful marine scene and a "Gray Morning" are works ot art which soften and blend their har mony Into the human thought. There Is a notlcible abundance of andscape effects among tuom being "A Sinner Rain," "Early Evening," and "nartard Bridge at Twilight" which is einsldered one of tho gems of the collection. Then one may find strong studies lu life, among them being "My Gondaller's Kit chen," "The Singers" and tho excel lent "Lo Petile Son" a creation by Miss Clara Walsh. It Is notlcable that there are only two flower pieces bjt they aro beautl ull pieces of work and deserve tho closest study. Tho work of Miss Bayden Instruction tho Art School is all that could bejaesired and thero are several of her productions In water color. Among others ro studies of animal and baby life, a very curious and yet true study of that unropres slble onion, and a strong picture of an Indian's head. An effort will bo made this week by Professors Hodge man and Fling to interest the stu dents in tho exhibition, and a mass meeting will probably bo held to stir matters up in the University. A rate of fifty cents per season ticket is made to students and the art association feels that there Is no rea con why tho students cannot avail themselves of tho opportunity to study the work of masters. It costs tho Association $1,500 to complete Buch an exhibition and a argo attendance is necessary for them to come out even. In addition it Is tho aim of tho association to purchase a least one first class picturo each voar to croato tho embryo of a State Art Gallery, having only the best works of art that can be obtained.

Stanford University was defeated in football Jan 1. by Michigan by tho decided score of 49 to 0. The result of tho game proclaims toe difference between eastern and western football. Michigan's players entirely out classed their opponents and pushed the Digskin wherever they wished. In tho exchange of punti Stan ford repeatedly lost ground while they could not regain by any of their plays. The second half was the finest exhibition of fast football ever seen in California, Michigan scoring 32 points. Tho strongest playing of tho game was done by Michigan's backs. The game was witnessed by a record breaking crowd of beveq thousand petple. QUESTIONS FOR DEBUTE. Debating Board Announces Two and tho Third Practically Bot tled Kansas will Do cido This Woek.
