CAP GOES TODAY.
Famous Freshman Head Piece
Goes to the Lucky Man
This morning at 10 o'clock the fa
mous Freshman cap tho solo survivor
of his tribe, which alono escaped the
trial by llro and tho murderous in
clinations of tho upper classmen will
be raffled off at tho Big Rock east
of the library. There on the historic
spot where many an orator has done
his impromptu in premeditated and
malicious execlso of speech, the draw
ing for the cap will take place. The
premiums announced several days ago
as going with tho tickets have been
withdrawn, as Insufficient inquiry has
been made for them. However, it lias
been decided that tho man winning the
cap will take all those holding tickets
up to Rector's for refreshments. It
Is quite likely that the cap will be
passed around through the crowd for
Inspection, and then submitted .to the
committee of the Freshmen who will
O. K. It as to gonuineness. All are
free to come out and watch proceed
ings, and special arrangements have
been made to take -care of the crowd.

before the public, have been removed
by those In charge ot tho dook as ioo

somewhat too extravagant.
