Annual Outing of Fourth Year Stu
dent Is a Big 8ucesfr Well Adver
tised Capture Two Juniors.
The Seniors sneaked off to Mllford
yesterday morning as advertised, and
held their annual outing at the Sol
dlers Home. Everything passed off
smoothly and the 'event was a big suc
cess. The last year students left on a
special train over the Burlington at
7:16 yesterday morning. There were
over two hundred in the party and
they had no trouble In getting started.
All the other students knew the Sen
iors wercgoing to sneak, but did noth
ing to molest them.
The Seniors kidnapped two Juniors,
Miss Laura Rhoades and Arthur Jor
gensen, and took them to Mllford.
They tried to get President Shaw of
the clasB of 1908, but failing in their
attempt to capture him, they took
these other two juniors in hiB place.
At Mllford the seniors threw off

of their University course. They
went boat riding on, the lake, played
baseball, climbed the fire-escape, ate
poor grub, and had a ,blg time in gen
eral. The boating and climbing went
nicely, but, eating tho grub nearly
proved fatal to many of the fourth
year students because there was only
enough food to give each senior a sin-,
gle mouthful. A. G. ' Schrlber sup
plied the food, and, as usual, failed
to get enough.
The Seniors had a great deal of fun

them do all kinds of stunts.
They dressed Arthur. Jorgenson In
a suit similar to those worn by prison
ers and made him do all kinds of
manual labor, such a carrying water
and cooking coffee. Miss Rhoades was
compelled to wash dishes and act us

tempts to escape from his superiors
and managed nally o get away and
returned to Lincoln.
