Senior Boys to Wear Trl-Colored
Hats of Handy Style To
Give the "N"
The Bonior boys met yesterday in
loom 109 of the Library building and
decided upon the hat that they Bhall
wear during the remainder of the year.
Three designs were presented to the
class by the committee, Messrs. Druner,
Stra,yer and Swan. Much pains have
been taVen by the committee to secure
designs that would meet the approval
of the class. Two of the designs which
were presented yesterday were caps
much like those worn by the junior
boys last year, and the other was a
small felt hat, light and convenient
Some of tho boys not being satisfied
with any of tho caps presented, desired
a large broad-lfrlmed, white hat that
was under discussion nt a previous
meeting. Tho motion was voted down,
however, and the small felt hat re
ceived the consideration of tho class.
The motion to adopt this design was
easily passed, but a spirited discussion
followed over color nnd trimmings
The hat, as finally agreed upon, will be
Yale blue, with a cream-colored band
upon which will be placed simply the
letter "N" in scarlet Tho Idea in using
the one letter, without '03. was to de
part from a long-established custom
and to make the senior hat peculiar.

with the seniors in tho field of argu
mentation. This debate will tako place
some time after tho holidays, but the
exact date has not yet been set
This will be tho first IntcrclaBS de
bate in tho hlBtory of the Institution
and Is certainly a very commendable
move. It will raise tho standard of
debating in the university by creating
more interest in the work and at the
same time help to stir up much needed
class Bplrit and enthusiasm through
out tho Institution.
The team will be composed of John
Tobin, E. R. Buckner, Burdette LowIb
and C. R. Sargent. Mr. Sargent will
act as alternate.
These men have been chosen by Mr.
Myers only after careful consideration
and a most thorough Investigation.
They will make a strong team without
question. Mr. Tobin was an alternate
on one of the last year's Interstate
teams. Mr. Buckner has made a record
in the courses of argumentation, Is an
able speaker and will fill this position
with credit. Burdette LowIb has rep
resented the Omaha high school In In-ter-scholastlc
debate, Is a prominent
member of the Union Debating club
and was on last year's Interstate squad.
Mr. Sargent is a good debater, has re
ceived his training under Professor
Fogg, and has written the best paper
in English 11 this year. '
As agreed by the committees on de
bate, the junior team will select the
question to be dobated and submit it
to the seniors, who will choose their
side. Considerable interest Is already
manifest in this debate and it promises
to bo a very interesting affair.
