two political rivals had, as by mutual

The time for the election has been

selves nobly to place their favorite
man in the executive chair. The entire
class is manifesting a keener Interest
in politics Mian has ever been shown

Chancellor Interviewer! by .Editors of

Questionable Material.
Yostopimy morning the trouble over
the jffiostlun as to whether or nbt the
teilal to be put Into the CoruhUHkor
should all be edited by the Board oT
Publication was taken up with the
Chancelloi by the editors and a final
agreement readied, Considerable stir
and discussion had been created by
the announcement the day before that
the faculty, In order to prevent the
appearance of any caricatures or Jokes
mnde at their oxpense, would subject
the copy to the rigid surveillance of
the Student Publication Board. Many
students declared against the injustice
of this requirement and much interest
turned upon the mooting where an at
tempt to lessen tho stringency of such
a ruling was to be made.
The Chancellor explained to 11. G.
Myers, cditor-ln-chlcf, and T. A. Brown,
managing editor, that there would be
no restrictions placed on the nature of
the take-offs put into the book, except
those dealing with physical intpor tac

clared would be strictly prohibited.
Further, uny material that scorned, in
the Judgment of the editors, of doubt

Professor Richards, chairman of the
Board, and be printed only at his ap

questionable nature, tho editors should

Regarding this settlement, some stu

fair, but there ure others who main

pervision whatever over the copy that
goes 'to make up the year book of tho

work. There are over a hundred mem
bers In the Chorus now arid many
more are wanted for the organization,
especially boys. Participation In this
chorus work: gives the students an
opportunity to attend the concerts, of

Work Suspended.
Work on the Temple Building has
been suspended tot the last week and
a half on account Of tho severe weather.
Tho building has been progressing rap
Idly; the walls are very nearly com-
pjeted, joists for two of the floors havo
been laid, and some of tho lower win
dOws put in place, The intention is
to havo tho place, ready for occupancy
at tho beginning of school next Sep
