Tho authorities have Just received a
carload of chairs equipped with arm
rests, which have been placed In tho
two society haljs on tho thjrd floor of
the main hall', thus converting them
into largo lecture, rooms. Tho old
Union Hall Is being used as a lecturo

tinued last night, but not so many men

TO BE ORGANIZED HERE.
Miss Howell and Manager Dirks Are
Making Plans for Its Formation. '.
In response ttf Invitations Issuod by
Miss Howell, a representative from
each of tlio girls' Vorganlzatlbns mot In.
U. Ill last -Tuesday morning during
tho chapel hour and discussed tho fea
sibility of a girls' gleo. club. Every
body seemed qui to enthusiastic over
tho proposition, and it was docldod
that immediate seps bo taken to or-
ganlzo tho club. In order that thoro
might be somo organized body behind
tho movemont, It was decided to'havo
the Black Masque push tho project.
It is tho purpose of tho club to as
sist tho main Glee Club In Its annual
homo concert to bo given this winter.
If this turns out as successfully as It
should, Manager Dirks has promised
tho girls that ho will give them a trip
through tho state, If proper arrange
ments can bo made. Chancellor .An
drews Is hoartlly In favor of tho plan
and has made arrangements so that
tho members of tho club may redelvo
oho hour credit each somestor for their
trouble. This, togethor with tho pros
pect of a trip next sprlngBhould prove
most attractive to tho co-eds, and
doubtless a largo number will respond
to tho call for candidates when It is
f Senior Election.
Tho .first meeting of tho Senior class
was to have been, hold yesterday morn
ing', but on account of the special con
vocation hadto bo postponed until
somo umo next weeic prooauiy 'jues
day morning. At this meeting tho.
. . M
president for tho present Bemestorns
to bo olected, and as this is a ydry
responsible position on account of the
number of appointments which Iho
president will have to'mako, soyoral
candidates have announced their will
ingness to servo, and tho supporters
of two of them have been very actlvo
In lining up tholr friends. ' Rumor has
It that tho chief contest is, to ho be
tweon tho Sphinx and Innocent- 'So
cieties, but this Is hardly true, as sev
eral of tho mos.t actlvo partisans '.bo
long to both societies.
Tho candidate ,whoso chances seem
to bo tho bettor at this time isDon;
Skeen, Mr. Skeen is a raetfical stu
dent and will hayp tho support of,tho
solid medico delegation. Ho is also
an Innocent ajnd a Sphinx but, is said
to bo tho candldato of tho lattor so?
cloty. Mr. Skeen 'is captain of Com,
pany B and Is very popular among hi
classmates, and would undoubtedly
make a' very able president. '
1 Another candidate whoso name Is
frequently mentioned Is L. H. Wouon
sick. Mr. Wcllenslck is an Innocent,
and presumably .has tho 'support of
that organization. ".
Tho new president will have a num
ber ;of Important committees .to name,
chief among them being the Senior
Book Committee- As tho Sbnior Book'
Is tho only publication which will ap
pear this year, ltIs, of course, Impera
tive that it bo of -extraordinarily good
1 quality. .
