A Freshman .Informal was hold in

University custom "for a student to
invite a lady to chaporono lilm when

no fair maidens. Arid then the charm
"was broken, for at 8:5G precisely Uib
door opened and revealed three bravo
'Froshm'en lasslOB who hail dared to
take their courage in their teeth and
Then tho reaction came, and the
Freshmen broke in all directions for
telephones, to make the dates they had
neglected to secure in tho week that
had iled. PluckYly they fought dis
couragement after d-6couragoment

think she would? Good, I'll bring
Poter Green down with me. No, he's
too bashful to talk over the phono.
Yes, I'll be right down. Good bye."
In this fashion quite a number of
Freshman ,glrls were corralled and at
the eleventh hour (literally as well as
figuratively) tho scheduled dance was
pulled off. Tho men of tho first year
class report that they had a good
time, but thoro Is a rumor going tho

A P088I1LE GAME.
Chicago and Yale May Meet in Foot
ball Next FaJI.
Advices from Chicago lndlcato that
thoro is a considerable possibility of a
football game between the teams rep
resenting Chicago and Yale Universi
ties next fall. For several years tho
Yalo undergraduates have favored a
game with Chlcagb but the annual con-,
test with harvard and tho reBtrictod
number of games allowed to bothYale
and. Qhicago has prevented tho clash..
Now Harvard Is seriously consider
ing the abolition "of football and this
will give the Eli's a chanco to make a
substitution .on their schedule to the
advantage of Chicago. As yet tho .Ma
roons have only ono gamb definitely
scheduled for next fall and would have
no difficulty whatever In nrrariglng ib
ilay Yale if tho Ell's 'are willing. If
the gairio is schedulod It will undoubt
