The Students' Dobating Club gave
Its second semi-annual "blow out" in
Union Hall last Saturday night. Tho
"coeds" were fairly well represented,
enough so that tho appcaranco of tho
crowdTuggestcd variety 'and not mo
notony, as-is usually tho caso.
The meeting opened with a fake
parliamentary scrap, in which j& mem'
ber of the club was openly accused of
graft and in the heated discussions
which followed, vehement appeals
wore made by the frantic lawyers, who
felt .themselves divinely appointed to
prosecute graft, to "throw him oul."
At the crucial moment, tho gontleman
who was tho pretended source of tho
rumor, came straggling .In as usual,
late and In response to tho expectant
agitators who urgently pressed him
for further information, shyly admit
ted that ho had 'spread tho rumor but

joke On hearing this statement the
churges, against tho accused jnomber
were withdrawn, an apology was made
to -him which ho readily accepted and

Hodgman, In his notoa on accroditod

statement made by former Inspector
Crabtreo that tho majority of Univer

of a spirit of co-operntlon botwoen tho
high sch'ools and tho university u
movement begun by Cancollor Can
field and strengthened by Chancellor
Andrews. Mr. Crabtreo is correct in
saying that a largo Bharo of tho cfodit
for thljB improved cooperation be
tween these parts or our stato educa
tion system is due to tho public
school men who have insisted that
university ideals and methods must
be modified by local conditions. But
tho writor Is sorry that Mr. Crabtree's
articlo gives the Impression that n ma
jority of tho university tcachorfi.havo
.always opposed theso- rnddlflcationa.
'Since tho writor has bpen connected
with tho university three times as long
as Mr. Crabtreo, he bcl loves ho knows

"So great was tho confidence of uni
versity men that Mr. Crabtreo would
reflect tho wisdom and oxporlenco "of
tho public school men that during tho
last year or two of his inspectorship
tho committee on accrcditod schools
never had a session. Mr. Crabtreo
alone put on and took off schools from
tho list, raisod and lowered credit
