much pleased with the number who are
out for placeB, as It is a good indica

over those who" will wait until good

Professor Nicholson of the depart
ment of chemistry, is at work on plans
ror the remodeling of the chemical lab
oratory next summer, for which pur
pose the state leglslatuie at Its last
session appropriated $30.0W) The lab
oratory has been for Beveral ycaiB In
a c audition of disrepair that called for
lmmedlute lemedy. The destruction of
a valuable balance Bcale by a fall of
plaster from tho celling of ono of the
rooniB last year is still fresh In the
minds of University students, and tho
wi etched condition of the lighting and
heating apparatus, as well as of tho
water piping has already called forth
the energetic protests of numerous suf
ferers from theso conditions.
The plans In contemplation call for
a complete gutting of the building. The
outlro Inside of the structure will bo
torn out and reananged In such a way
aB to provide for thorough conven
ience and comfort of classes. The
walls will all be replastered, an up-to-
fdate lighting connection InBtalled and
the whole system of pipes and draining
materially Improved. Efficient provi
sion for better heating facilities will
also bo made.
The large lecture-room on the third
floor will exchange places with tho
the nlnin mater. Yesterday the cam
pus was the scene of many a reunion
and renewal of acquaintances, and
many of oui alumni were welcomed
back to the fcdie of their former activ
ities. Tills Is one of the most Impres

floor. A general shake-up of recitation
'ooins and offices will be made and
eeveral departments will probably be
moved to tho now physics building to
commence construction soon. This
building will supply tho urgent de
mands for more space from the chemi
cal department as well as from the de
partment of physics.
A definite announcement of the plans
can not bo mado until after the next
meeting of the Board of Regents to be
held some tlmo In April. Professor
Nicholson has not as yet been able
to estimate the cost, of the proposed
Improvements, and a conference with
tho Board will be necessary before any
thing can actually be decided upon. It
Is thought, however, that the money
appropriated, by tho legislature will
he sufficient to cover the expense of
tho desired changes.
Aside from tho above items, it is
probable that a largo assortment of
new Instruments and chomlcalB will
bo secured. The lockers In tho labor
atories will be reconstructed. A small
lecture room Is planned for the third
floor. It Is Intended to make the Uni
versity laboratories as thoroughly up-to-date
and modern as any In the west.

A FINE EVENT
Junior Prom at Lincoln Hotel a
Last night the Junior Prom., the
great University social event of the
year, passed Into history as one of the
most brilliant and successful events of
its nature ever held In the history of
this University. This Is the event that
is iooked forward to with anticipation,
and for which preparations are made
weeks beforehand. Every detail that
could contribute to make tho Prom, a
ruccess was carefully attended to.

until tho last hours of the- night had hall team.
Interest in the approaching Sopho
more class election has been increas
ing for some time and now its outcome
13 forming the basis for much conjec
ture among all University students. The
appointment of the management of
next year's Sombrero will be under the
control of the president, who will be
elected at tho next meeting of the class
to he held some time this week, prob
ably, and several men have already be
gun active canvass of their supporters,
not so much for the honor of secur
ing the clasB presidency, as of dictat
ing tho staff of tho next Junior Class
book. The position of editor-in-chief
has come to bo regarded as the highest
honor within tho bestowal of the Soph
omore class and the struggle for places
this year promises to be more strenu
ous than ever before.
Three men have announced them
selves as candidates for the presidency.
These nro Messrs. W. H. Smith, of
Tobias; C. M. Mathewson, of Winne
bago, and C. G. Hrubesky, of Geneva.

Mr. Hrubesky Beems, at present, to
hold the greatest strength. His manag
ers have been working energetically for
some time, and assert confidence In the
success of his candidacy.
Mr. Mathewson, as a member of the
Phi Delta Theta fraternity, will prob
ably poll a fair fraternity vote. Mr.
Hrubesky and Mr .Smith, we under
stand, are "barb." men. The former
will doubtless be remembered as one
of the best pitchers on last year's base-
