It Ih ii good time to quit. We re

fiom the library to memorial hall and
the laboratory. Quite a path Ih ap
pearing already through the very
center of the campuH quadrangle. Un
less a little Keif restraint Is exercised
by the students, Superintendent of

erect another stretrh of unsightly Iron
fence. Now is a good time to quit
the practice, and sae the necessity
of restoring the old 'fenced-in" area.

Without regard to party affiliations,
University peole have a gieat deal
of liking for the man Theodore Roose

that he comes as the representative of
tho dominant party in tho nation, but
brief. They would be glad to hae
that his stay must of necessity he so

Mr. Iiryan's home town produces.

To put debating nt Kansas on a
still more efficient basis next year the
debating council has. according to the
Weekly, iocommondcd an entirely new
method of selecting the interstate
teams The object of this method is to
weed out the poor debate! s from even
candidacy for places on the teams- to
limit candidates to the ten or a elo.en
most competent men. The method of
elimination proposed Is as follows
At the beginning of the year the thirty
best debaters fiom the six societies
are put Into a training class conducted
by piofessors; at the end of the first
month the weaker men will be
dropped; at the end of the second, an
other weeding, and ho on until tho
class numbers ten or twelve; and from
these the coaches pick the interstate
teams. The debating council thinks
that by this plan the university will
save Itself from being represented by
Incompetent or ill-prepared students.
Ing had the privilege of the Univer
sity. After considerable casting about
the committee concluded that a fitting
memorial would be either a marble
slab, In memory of the soldiers of
the late war, to be put up on the side
of Memorial hall, or a chancellor's
thnlr, similar to those recently se
cured at Minnesota and Yale univer
sities. The class favored the latter
suggestion and made arrangements
for purchasing an elaborate chair of
spec ial design, which will be tised
only on special occasions. A tax of
fifty cents each was voted on the class
to defray expenses incurred by the
The Ivy Day committee has been
planning a program and making ar
rangements for Ivy Day, Which will
occ ur probably on the first of next
month. The committee requested all
who have poems and songs to submit
for use on that occasion to hand them
in before the end of two weeks. It
also recommended that the class ap
point a historian to wilte a history of
the class and present it on that day.
The e lass took up the suggestion
and elected Anna Maxwell historian.
For want of time the matter of
wealing college caps and gowns dur
ing commencement week was not con
sidered. A spec Ial meeting of .ae
hoys of the class will be called short;

Nebraska dehating last year has
verily stirred up the Kansans. The
Kansas University Weekly of March
28th concedes that K. U. has never
yet sent out a trained dehating team.
But this year the university says it
has one to meet Nehraska In Fraser
hall next Friday night on the com
pulsory arbitration question. Thus Is
fulfilled the prophecy of Chancellor
Andrews last May that Nehraska meth
ods of teaching logical thinking would
drive tho neighboring universities to
teach clear thinking and vigorous
speaking better than heretofore.
The Kansas Weekly of the above
date has a big advertisement which
In part reads as follows:
" 'Compulsory Arbitration' handled
by trained deba'teiB for the first time
In the history of K. U. We are going
to do things In debating this year."
Chancellor Frank Strong Is leading
the enthusiasm. The Weekly calls up
on "every student to be present and
help our team win." The contest will
be held in the college chapel Fraser

morning and listened to reports from
several committees. The program
committee reported that final arrange
ments had been made for programs,
which will appear In the form of a
folder, as announcements, not Invita
tions. Tho folders will be rather
plain but of the best material, giving
them the appearance of richness.

at the rate of $1.00 per hundred. Those
who order one hundred cards will get

of the name apearlng on the cards.

be handed to the committee before
