Professor Caldwell Gives a His
tory and Statement of the
Hat Question at End
The Senior boys met yesterday and
came to a final agreement as to a class
hat, a matter which has engaged the
attention of tho boys for some time. A
largo variety of styles was presented
by the committee. From the numerous
Bhapes and styles a majority of the boys
favored a naval reserve hat and a small
whito cap. After considerable discus
sion tho naval reserve hat was adopted.
It waa further agreed that black would
be tho most appropriate color, as well
as the most attractive. The class color,
Yale blue, will be used only In tho
U. N, monogram, "which will bo placed
on tho front of the cap.
Tho Senior boya have boon wrangling;
over caps' and hats for some weeks,
and now It is believed a design haa
been found that will not only meet
J . thd approval of the entire class, but
j , will be purchased and worn by a largo
'i majority of the Senior boys. To Be-
cure something odd, attractive and
Bervicable has been the object of tho
Ifc j committee. These qualities will be sg-

He said In part:
Possibly Venezuela's troubles are no
greater than mine have been In finding
material bearing on this question. In
1814 Columbia freed itself from France.
It was divided In 1830, Into Venezuela,
Columbia and Ecuador. Venezuela has
had troubles Internally and externally,
nearly all the tlmo since then. It la
said to havo 104 different governments
after It became Independent. One or
twu ruvutuuons are now under way.
These Beom to be contests between tho
Liberal and Clerical parties, similar to
tho agitation Mexico wont through be
tween 1850 and 1870. Close observers
think that tho Liberals will triumph,
and in time Venezuela may have as
goou a government as Mexico has.
Their form of government la mod
elled after our own. The president is
elected for four years. The legislative
branch consists of a senate of twenty
four members, three chosen by tho leg
islature of each of the eight provinces,
and a house, the members of which

Venezuela contains 593,000 square
miles, being about eight times tho size
of Nebraska. Its population Is 2,323,
000, twice that of Nebraska. Caracas,
the capital, has about 72,000 people. Its
debt Is estimated at about $13,000,000
Inherited from tho past, about $9,000,
000 railroad guarantee bondB ,and $1,
000,000 Interest. This Is about six
times tho total debt of Nebraska. It
is a serious burden on a country where
Industry is not very highly developed.
$5,000,000 is admitted to bo owed to
the citizens of Germany. The Germans
claim an additional sum of $1,700,000,
which Venezuela does not acknowledge.
Then there is the Interest on this $5,
000,000, which has not been paid for
flvo years. Italy's claim is $565,000,
EnglandB $500,000, and Belgium, Spain
and Holland claim smaller sums.
As to resources, her imports amount
to about $8,000,000i and exports $15,-

miles of .railroad threo years ago. It
has 4,000 miles of telegraph lines,

The present crisis began years ago,
when Germany tried to force her claim.
They planned to act alone, but before
doing so they asked the consent of the

"Tommy" presided at tho punch bowl,
and refreshments consisting of a great
variety of good things were passjbd
around. Dr. Mayhow rendered several
piano selections, and the guests amused
themselves with cards and gossip. On

great success, and those who wore for
