Tho Democracy of America is de
teriorating and tho futuro govornmont
of this country is Imperiled by tho
present rush of our people to material
Ism. Such Is tho tenet of Professor
Taylor as enunciated In his convoca
tion address yesterday morning.
Profossor Taylor drew a contrast
between tho aristocracy of medieval
times and tho democracy of tho pres
ent day, telling how tho peoplo of tho
former ago gavo much attention ,to art
and youth and how wo of this "eco
nomic period" direct our groator ef
forts to development of materialistic
Tho corruption today in offices of
trust gavo him a theme for his con
cluding words, in which ho said tho
American gcvernmont of tho future
would bo an aristocracy not an aris
tocracy such as ruled hundreds of
years ago In Europe, but an aristoc
racy with a few In supreme power
like, for example, tho labor unions in
this country today with their haughty

Tho Junior olass will moot this
morning at 11:00 o'clock In tho Chem
istry Lecture Room for tho purpoao of
electing ofllcera for tho presont se
mester. The Juniors aro meeting so
oarly In tho year that no well-defined
booms havo boon launched, but there
are a numbor of aspirants for tho
presidency, most prominent among
whom seem to bo Lott and Do Young.
It is expected that there will bo tho
usual division ilno between barbs
and frats, Mr. Lott representing the
latter olomont and Mr. Do Young tho
former. As tho president to bo electa
ed today will havo tho powor to ap
point tho Junior Promonado commit
too, an exciting contest is lookod for.

RECEPTION TO ALL
THREE MEN GONE
NEWSMEN ARE TO BE ELECTED
TO FILL VACANCIE8 ON THE ,
Track, Baseball and Basket-ball Mana
gers Are Also to Be 8elected
for Coming Year.
With tho beginning of tho school
yoar and tho athletic year It is found
that tho Athletic Board Is lacking
three of Its studont mombors. Thoso
men were elected last spring and fully
Intended to bo In school this yoar. ta
tako charge of their duties, but on ac
count of lnadvortablo circumstances
and changea they will bo abaont. Tho
mon who aro out of achool aro Hunter,
Hewitt nnd Graves.
Tho resignations of thoso mon aro
handed in or will bo handod In in tho
near future, and It Is expected that
tho noxt mooting of tho Athletic
Board will mean tho election of men
to fill these vacancies. Tho mon nro
selected by tho remaining studont and
faculty mombers. Thoso mon serve
until tho next regular election.
No candidates have aa yot an
nounced themselves, but It is undor
atood that thero aro sevoral who aro
quiotly at work. It la quite euro that
men who aro 8eIectod will bo quite
capable for tho poaUlona, as it will no
ImpoBBlblo for University politics or
politicians to havo anMnfiuonco with
tho romaining members of tho Board.
Edgar Cotton and Wm. Hoar havo
been favorably mentioned as likely
mon for two of tho vacancies.
Bosldos tho election of Board mom
bora, tho noxt mooting of tho Athletic
Board will moan tho election of track,
basoball and basket-ball tnanagers,
also tho canvassing of tho vcates cast
for track captain. Six mon wdVo oll
glblo for track captain, so tho votos
will bo well scattorod. Cramer and
Wollonslck nre likely candidates for
track and baseball managers, respec
tively. As yet thoro aro no mon out
for baBket-bail manager, but it is felt
sure that several names will bo in tho
hands of Dr. Clapp by tho tlrao for
Gale of 8eason Tickets.
