For the Third Time Classes Clash
"To wear, or not to wear (hats)" Is
still a perplexing problem to the Fresh
men as was shown In another dis
turbance caused by the appearance
of a Freshman hat on the campus at
11 o'clock yesterday. The combat
did not continue as long as the one a
week ago, but this was due to the fact
that never after the beginning of the
melee did any sophomore know where
to look for the offending hat, it being
safely stowed away In the boot of
some first-year man.
The skirmish was practically over
when. Dean E. W. Davis appeared oil
the field and endeavored to stop what
was still going on, thus making him'
self at. once the center of attraction.
As the excited crowd gathered about
him, eagerly clamoring for a speech,
ho made several attempts to admonish
the crowd, but failing to make him
self heard, withdrew, after which the
combatants dispersed of their own ac
cord. Y. W. Expedition.
All glrlB expecting to go with the
party to Mrs. W. J. Byan's home to

the XJnlverslty campus promptly at 2
o'clock, and looking their prettiest.
There will be no costuming except by
those who may have especial part in
the program. Nevertheless, there will
be plenty of fun, tho genuine article.
Any one inclined to question the
veracity of this statement need only

Explosion In Chemistry Laboratory
Yesterday afternoon whilo dissolv
ing some solid potassium hydrate in
tho laboratory of tho Analytic Chem
istry department, G. b. Pitchford and
those about him at tho time lie was
working tho experiment narrowly es
caped serious injury as a result of
an explosion. Several people's oyos
woro filled with the chemical and it
was feared for a time that some might
have suffered the loss of sight. Others
suffering were Luther Knight, H. D.
Young and Miss FosBlor, tho instruc
The attention of those Working in
the laboratory at tho time was at
tracted by a Jet of white liquid rising
to the ceiling from the vial over which
Mr. Pitchford was working, and the
next moment a rather violent explosion
occurred, scattering tho hydrate over
tho whole north end of tho room. The
faces of those near tho bursting flask
were covered with tho material and
considerable of it got into their eyes,
Miss Fossler and Mr. Pitchford suf
fering particularly in this respect.
Mr. Knight suffered from tho bit of
glass that lodged in his eye, while
Mr. Young, having the presence of
mind to throw his face forward, mere
ly had his hair filled with the chem
ical. Oil was applied to the burnt
faces of those Injured at the direction
of Dr. Avery, who had come In at
hearing the commotion, and a doctor
was summoned. The sufferers were
soon relieved. At last report it was
stated that none would realize any
serious effects of tho experience,
slnco tho hydrate did not burn deeply
Into their eyes. Miss Fossler suffered
the most severely in this respect.
Tho cause of the explosion was not
duo to tho nature of the chemical, but
to tho fact that not sufficient outlet
was allowed for tho . escape of tho
steam inside the flask. The contents
of the. vial became superheated and
burst out simply for this reason.
