The meeting of the Associated
Barbs called for 1 p m esterdny had
to be postponed on account of a lack
of a quorum. Since their defeat at
the bands of the frals in the Athletic

tide and now enthusiasm enough to
gft a quorum out at the time of elec
tion of officers can not be aroused.
However, the offices do not seem to
-lack--ftttplruntH nmPIt Is probable that
the final attempt, which will be made
Monday, will prove successful.
