Hats a Striking
School of Music Notes
Mr. flcorge Johnston is in Chicago
for a few days.
Miss Lena Frlckc visited Miss Du
raont during the holidays.
The class of '04 is the first to appear
In class headgear this year. The girls
have been wearing their caps for some
time and the boys appeared in their
now hats yesterday. The hatfl are de
cidedly odd in color, shape and design,
as the class intended they should be.
They are olive green and red in color,
of soft fiannel-llko material, and bear
no class numerals. Being of this soft
material they can be placed in the
pocket or even sat upon without injur
ing them and will be very easy to
"swipe." The hats can be secured by
calling on B. P. Tyner ai I, 102 during
convocation hour. Now orders may also
be left with him.
'Miss Bcsb BurniKS is visiting her sis
ter in Nebraska City for a few days.

Girls to See Pictures Debating

tention Mr. Hodge

first meeting Friday evening at 7:30.
Much enthusiasm has been developed,
and a strong club Is almost assured.
Bret Hart's Estate
It appears that Bret Harte left an
estate which Is valued at only $1,800,
but he also left an estate which is in
valuable, since it Is beyond price. lie
was richer both In his life and in his
death than a convention of multi-millionaires.
We can think of no one who
would be entitled to a seat in that con
vention who would match him in the
power to get or to give. There have
been some of the class who had their
start in mining CHinps, and who en
joyed the experience, but Harte saw
many things beyond the range of their
vision. His sensitive temperament.
his fancy, his imagination, not onlyj
multiplied the objects, but reveled in
them, responded to every touch of hu
mor and pathos, to every inspiring sug
gestion of man and nature. Hence the
quality of his enjoyment was unap
proachable, and when the period of ob
servation was past there was a new en
joyment In the exercise of that art
which made him not only the first but
probably the greatest of writers of
short stories In the modern style.
While the memory of the camp was
growing less distinct with others, he
accepted all the old pleasures by re
creating picture after picture and so
saved them for all time.
It was thus that he built the great
estate whlch compares with the estates
of the multi-millionaire as his best
happiness does with theirs. This Is
said without any intention to disparage
industrial genius, its material contrU
butlons to human progress or Its pub
lic benefactions. We are considering
now merely the value of the possession
to the Individual himself and to his
future fame, and It is Bafe to say that
from this point of view nine people out
of ten would rather be Bret Harte than
a Rockefeller or a Carnegie Chicago
Interstate Debates
With the return of the students
earnest work In preparation for the
preliminary debates has begun. Sev
eral men have register already and
many more intend to do so. All those
who are going to try for places on the
inter-state teams should register as
soon as possible with Secretary Meier
of tho debating board.
Basket ball is receiving considerable
attention from the young men of the
Academy, and it is hoped that a strong
team may be the result. January 15th
the team will play the Tecumseh high
school team, which will be the first out
of town game this year.

The business men of the city and the
university professors are putting fo "th
great efforts to make the entertain
ment a success. What Is now needed
Is support from the student body,
which will undoubtedly be forth-coming.
Several fraternities and literary
societies have signified their Intention
to attend in a body.
An excellent program has been ar
ranged and every student who can at
tend Friday night should take advant
age of the opportunity to witness a
first-class entertainment and at tho
same time aid in a worthy cause.

Postoffice Box for Cadets
A large postoffice box was placed In
the east end of the armory near the
door, during vacation. It is to be used
by the military department exclusively,
in communicating with cadets. Each
company has a tier of boxes arranged
in alphabetical order and cadets are re
quested to watch them for mail. This
improvement has been needed for some
time and will be welcomed by all con-corned.

Padlocks on Lockers
Some much needed improvements
were made in tne men's locker room
during vacation. Tho combinations
were removed from all the lockers and
they were fitted with latches. Every
one who UBes the lockers will provide
himself with a padlock and key of his
own and carry and keep the key him
self. Padlocks can be secured from
Jack Best. This change will eliminate
to a great extent the further loss of
property and confusion arising from
the combination method of locking. Be
sides much time will be saved.

Repetition of Ceurse

zoology during the second semester and

enable those who desire to start on the
six year medical course at the begin
ning of the second semester to under
take the work as it standB In the cata
logue. No definite hour has been de

be decided upon, and that preparations
may be made for the laboratory work.

made on the principal by the students
and teachers of the Academy, who, af
ter taking possession of his home for
a time, left a dozen solid silver Bpoons
as souvenirs of the occasion, and as a

planned entirely by the Btudents and
proved to be a perfect surprise.

my, and in pursuance of this policy
Major General Bates, commanding the
department of the lakes, has set apart

management to teachers and students
of the Academy and to superintendents
and principals of the state during the
association meeting. A few copies have
been placed on sale at the Co-Op, and
the University book store. The poster
is the first one ever produced In the
