Precipitate Class Scrap in The
Chapei Yesterday Morning.
First Year People are Decoyed by Fake
Notice. rresldeat Kleoted.
What for a time threatened: to de
velop Into a clasa scrap of largo pro
portions resulted yesterday morning,
from the somewhat successful efforts
of a large number of Sophomores to
Interfere with the first meeting of the
The call-for the rneetirig was In the
first place a falce prepared by a Sopho
inore and posted without the authority
or signature of the registrar. The con
vocation period In Memorial Hall had
been secured by the Juniors, and it
had not been supposed that the false
call would be heeded. Shortly after
11 o'clock, however, a large number
of Freshmen, together with a liberal
number of Sophomores, made their
way to the chapel, forced the Juniors
to conclude their "business Bomewhat
hastily, and proceeded to a farclal
election of officers for the Freshman
Mr. L. S. Legro, a Junior, called tho
meeting to order, but for over five
minutes could not make himself heard
on account of the noise and confusion.
Mr. C. A. Sunderlin, a Sophomore,
was unanimously chosen temporary
chairman and D. P. De Young, also
vl. Sophomore, temporary secretary.
Nominations for the presidency"' were
at once called for and various persons
all over the hall arose to present the
names of their candidates. The up
roar at once became almost deafening,
and students were attracted to It from
all parts of the campus. From among
tho multitude of names presented,
those of Messrs. A, Swenson of Omaha.
Roy Ralnbolt of Lincoln, and A. H.
Miller received recognition, and a
rising voto was ordered. No actual
count was taken, but Mr. Swenson was
declared elected by an overwhelming
Then the trouble started. The ad
herents of both the other candidates
at once charged fraud In tho vote, and
requested a poll. This was refused.
Someone at once demanded that the
Sophomores be expelled, and several
were seized upon and thrust into
"outer darkness." Sevcrjtf Sophs who
were not recognized by the Fresh
men endeavored to get rid of some of
the latter by the same manner. C. A.
Sunderlin and Clarence Johnson who
- were supposed to be members of the
Sophomore committee recently ap
pointed to attend to tho Freshmen,
were roughly handled In the melee, but
escaped without Injury. Through tho
efforts of Mr. Fee and John Uhl peace
was at lengtirrestored, but it is feared
that tho affair ha3 merely servod to
Introduce the two classes to each other,
amPthnt further trouble may follow.
The Freshmen declare that the meet
ing was illegal and that what was done
there should be disregarded. They pro
pose to calj another soon, at which no
Sophomores are to be admitted. The
Sophs, on the other hand, are Jubilant
over the success of their plans, and
are confident of preventing any further
action -without their consent.
During the frecas a table which had
stood on the platform was badly
smashed. The Sophs, we are told, will
have' to stand for this.
