not been rovjsod to keep pace with the,
development Df the game, reading now

cqnBtantly arising which are not cov
ered by them at all.
Tho aim of the editors has been,
tljen, toprlnt a clear-definite set of
rules for the Women's, game, which will
coyer all doubtful points in adequate
faahloq and will eliminate much of
the. confusion now prevailing; $t least
in the "rules for the game as played in
this'egtion p tlie country. Those who
ish u use these 'rules for the 'game
with fleia djylalons may do so by add
ing to Rule I the provision that the
field, fee'divlded'by1 lines parallel, to
the jend boundary lines, into three
equal courts In which the forwards1,
centers" and guards shall remain re
spectively, and to Rule pfl the provis
ion that Jf a player cross frofei-yme
court to another, or if any part of Tier
or her clothing touch the field line
or the court beyond, a foul shall be
called " "
Qupstlonp or -any sor pertaining to
tho interpretation of the rules as here
given, will bo answered gladly by

tbo much , celebrated Tresjunaa cap
At the time the Freshmen were con
templatlng the purchase of caps last
year, the Sophomores appointed a
committee with Instruction to pre
vent by any means possible the se
curing and wearlijg pit cape by tho
nrtt year poopjo. By a ptrategshi ibe
caps were secured by thecpmmltts
and burned amfd' m.uch rejoicing by
an enormous- crowd of upper-classmen.
It was wpl khdwri' before th'evcape
were.bdrned that tho, clothing Btoro
from which theyuwore procured would
demand reimbursement for its loss,
and the deed was' done with that un
derstanding.' BUtfthe,Junlor class has
hot seemed willing to stand responsi
ble fpr its instructions to the commits
.tee. -has -neglected' tdCTijfake gqd' to
It tho price bftho caps, and has, ii
iact, ieit u to aig up as oest it may
what still is due for them. One or
two feeble efforts have been made, it
is true, to aid the committee, but these
have been insignificant The commit?
tee tyas forced to give it$ note for tho
remainder of tho cpst of tho caps.
Today the note falls due. "' The
cpmraittee still, holds tho sack; .Some
G8 bones must be scraped np somoj
wbore. But the class of '67 shows ho
concern the caps are- disposed of? the
fun is past and the committee may
pay the fiddler.' Truly, here is an ex
ajnplo for noble youth to followi!
