as the date when thoy will hold forih
at Urn Oliver theatre with thrlr dusk
beauty, their rag time songs, and t lit iv

make this the greatest micccks oi an
similar undertaking ever tried hy t!
dramatic' talent of the lTiiicii-i , is
a proper managenirnt ol the busine--details
in order to get out a ciowd
Those competent to sprnk say the rr
leFt talent in the University and th
city has been cbtalnrd and a good
house is nil that is needed to irake the
success complete The management is
starting out right in these details with
a competent business and a press
agont. In fact evidence is not wanting
that the house will be filled to over
flowing. The tickets were plit in th '
hands of a large number of the mem
bers of the Dramatic dub estcniay
uoon, and one who has often nin
vsLsaed before for similar undei takings
slid when seen last night tint lie
never saw tickets sell to easilv. He
said the universal comment was: "I
know it will be good, and I ian'1 alford
to miss it." Many of Hip talesmen re
turned for more ticket before th"
after noon was over, having sold as
high as twenty-five. The scramble for
boxes among the fraternities will prob
ably be as keen as it has been anidng
the sororities for boxes to the glee
club concert, to which the IM Phi's
i'lone rook all the boxes on one sid.
of the- house. The young men will cer
tainly be no less gallant to the young
ladierj In the Minstrel show. Six of the
. fraternities have already signified theii
intention of going in a "bunch."
There are more than forty girls in
the minstrel. Every sorority and lit
erary roeiety is represented. These or
ganizations will no doubt turn out to
see their dark and shining stnr& win
glory and applause.
The price is not enough to kce p any
ono away. Reserved seats in the pi;
and the first fbiir rows of the balcony
are 50 cents, the rest ol the halt on)
is 3f cents and the galleiy U." cents.
Tickets can bo procured from the bus
iuess manager. Miss Ruth Wlison, or
from any of her numerous corps of
salesmen who are canvassing the Uni
versity. BEGIN TODAY.

State Farm buildings. Several bids
for the construction of the building

Dia Molnee. la. The eontrae-t for the
Phscis building calls for $rK.!)7r. and
that of the farm building for $r2,7ftr..
Thcrfc amounts call for more fund
than were at firbt considered avail

It is not definitely known when work
will commence on the buildings, but
will bo as soon as the necessaiy sub
