ProfesBor Wilson, of the Law School, Pre- Thompson and Sheimer liavo also beon
diets an International Arbitra
tion Court to Sottlo
Professor H. H. Wilson of the law
school spoke upon compulsory inter
national arbitration at convocation
yesterday. He said, in substance:
If the atmosphere were suddenly to
be drawn from the room the violent
pressure from without would instantly
crush the walls. The equal distribu
tion is all important. Hut so beauti
fully adjusted is this atmospheric en
velope that we pass through life with
out being conscious of its existence.
So it is with the legal atmosphere of
every community. Many a man passes
through life from the cradle to the
grave unconscious of its existence.
Not very far back in the history, of
the human race the individual depend
ed upon toree for the protection of his
rights. Then the power was taken
from the individual and given to the
public. A judge cannot pass judgment
upon himself, a sheriff cannot serve a
subpoena in a case in which he is in
terested; no man shall be the arbitra
tor of his own case. And yet today the
nations of the earth stand in relations
of absolute savagery.
To be a patriotic American one need
not hate a soul upon earth ; then how
absolutely devoid of sense that nations
should devote hundreds of millions to
maintain armies because this is the
only way to enforce their rights. To
day America stands as the confessed
policeman of the whole western conti
nent. Professor Wilson looks forward con
fidently to the tune when a court shall
be established in which every civilized
nation shall have representation and
no one shall help judge his own cause.
At mat time any nation which refuses
to submit to the rulings of this court
will be considered an international
bully. The spirit of the times Beems to
favor this Btep; and every civilized
nation shall stand pledged to uphold
the court. All civilization is ultimate
ly based on physical force as a last
resort. The decrees of the government
are supported by armed men. The
community stands behind the courts.
And thus the armed nations should
stand behind the common tribunal,
and every man uphold its decisions.

The unusually fine weather has been
extremely advantageous to the men
and the high wind which at present
prevails is the only disadvantage un
der which they are laboring. The
grounds have been rolled and the
strength of the battalion was called
into use Monday night to remove the
east bleachers to the south side, in
order that the grounds may be ar
At the meeting of the athletic board
Wednesday night it was voted to spend
$200 for the purchase of supplies. Nine
new suits will be bought, and, contrary
to the former custom, they will be
grey. The choice of this color was in
accordance with a vote of the men.
These suits must be turned in at the
end of the season, but every man will
be presented with a suit who serves
three years on the team. The old red
suits which were used last year will be
donated to the second team.
STUDENT HAS SMALLPOX.
I. F. Myers, a student from Broken
How, was taken to the pest house yes
terday. He was suffering from a well
developed case of smallpox. So far
this is the only case reported among
Dr. Hay, who had the case in charge,
said last night that while Mr. Myers
was in a serious condition, the disease
had not developed enough to show just
what it would amount to. The patient
is being given the best of care and it
is thought that he is in no danger. Dr.
Hay also said that there were a mini-

One of the features that makes the
situation almost ideal for a camp is a

would provide shade for the cadets.
The center of the race track could be
used as a drill ground and as such
would furnish better facilities for drill
than at any camp held by the battalion

The only drawback to tho place is
the lack of a good target range. No

SOPHOMORES SELECT BASEBALL
Tho sophomores met yesterday
morning at 10 o'clock In the old chapel
for the purpose of arranging for a class
party and a baseball team.
Speeches were called for frequently
and enthusiastically applauded. When
ever the sophomore basket ball, base
ball or party was mentioned the ap
plause was deafening. Class spirit was
high. If there has beon any doubt In
the other classes as to the spirit of tho
sophomores, that doubt would certain

It was decided to have a class party,
provided the armory could be obtained

Clark Bell was elected captain of

to get out and work and the rooters

The president appointed Sam Rees
and I. C. Baldwin to select yells and
organize the rooters.

the dancing until a late hour. The
affair was purely informal. Most of
