Chairman Ramsey Reports Play
Committee. Decision.
Adherent of Fowler Win Senior An
nnal to bo Dedicated to Him.
The Seniors held a well attended
class meeting yesterday morning in
U 106. Chairman Ramsey, of the play
committee, reported that this commit
tee had Anally decided upon the Senior
play, and that they had further decided
not to publish the name of the piece
chosen until a few days before its ren
dition, in the spring. The try-outs for
places in the play will bo held every
evening during examination week,
from 7 to 9 in U 106, and every Senior
that can is urged to make a trial. The
men are especially wanted, as the cast
in the play chosen Includes more men
than women. The dato of the Senior
"Prom," was discussed, but It was de
cided to leave it for March 17th, that
being the most favorable date.
The matter of dedication of the Sen
ior Annual was brought up and it was
decided- to limit the names of the fac

professors, or others of higher office,
eliminating all assistant professors,
instructors, etc. From the start Pro

vote being in his favor by a small

ot the Soph political activities laet
week must have opened I he eyes of-the
Juniors who, it seems, immediately
"opened a vigorous campaign and are
now" doing Btrenuous political work.
As yet, so far as can be ascertained,
but two fellows have a presldeullal hoe
buzzing in their "bonnets," and from
the present out-look they pern mi will
Te the only ones to enter the race.
However, this is still qv.'le early in the
game and several ambitious fellows
may announce their candidacy in the
week or more intervening thia and the
time for election.
The Sophomore committee to ar
range for the party as instructed by
the actions of the class at the last
meeting deliberated on several differ
ent plans yesterday morning and final
ly decided to givo a play after which
they would give an informal for those
who -washed to "trip the light fantas
tic." The feature of the evening will
be masquerading.
