A BARB TICKET
Their Five Candidates Win in
Athletic Board Election.
Yesterday the Barbs won out In the
most exciting Athletfc Board election
over held at UiIb University. All five
of their candidates wore elected, which
result seems to have furnished a com
plelo surprise to both parties In the
contest. Tho results are as follows:
Borg 194. Beers, 4fu, WoodB 430, Lane
134, Barta 432, Hewitt 427, Hagenslck
379, Mason 3G0, Van Burg 345 and
Molony 337. In all 829. votes were cast,
although 832 wero accounted for by
tho amount of fees received.
As was predicted Borg ran well and
polled a largo vote from both sldeB.
Boors also ran well, coming second
with a largo vote. For tho fraternity
men Hewlt Bcored a strong vote, and
the addition of six more votes or a
ci.nngo of three would have made his
case secure. In fact Mr. Hewitt was
a very popular candidates, and had
many friends on both Bides who wero
very dcBlrous of seeing him olected.
Tho turnout was surprisingly large,
being beyond expectations. During the
hours that tho polls were open an In
termittent throng of voterB exercised
their right of suffrage.
Tho showing made by tho Barbs was
duo largely to their organization and
to the lack of community In tho fra
ternity body. Tho Barba havo certain
ly mado vigorous attempts to organize,
having learned tho value of organiza
tion, and profited by tho lesson.
Tho girls voted to'quito an extent.
Many of them, however, Insisted upon
-paying their own foo and would allow
no ono olBe to do It for them. Some
of them abs&lutely refused to vote un
der any circumstances. But tho great
generality went out and exercised
their right of franchise.
The election was Indeed an exciting
one, and stands without a parallel In
the history of tho Institution. Quite
a nice llttlo sum was raised toward
cutting down tho athletic deficit, to
which baseball games forfeited on ac
count of rain havo contributed a share.
PLANT THE IVY
Seniors Hold Most Impressive
and Final Exercises.
Yesterday tho Seniors held their an
nual Ivy Day program, which was at
tended by tho moat desirable degree of
success. The main part of tho pro
gram consisted of the class oration by
Emory Buckner, which was finely con
ceived and delivered, and tho class
poem, by MIbb Helen Strooter, which
was well written and appropriate. "The
Seniors Farewell," tho clasp Bong,
which was composed by MIsb Mabel
Stephens, was sung by tho class. The
Ivy was planted bo that It will climb
the west wall of Memorial hall and
shade tho future generations of stu
dents. President Borg turned over the
trowel to President Allen of the Junjor
class, to keep and treasure until death
did 'em part. The Senior girls held
a May Pole dance on the campus, with
a largo crowd of Interested students as
