of, the pennant will take place this
afternoon In the University, amory,
from three until five. All girls taking
part, qr wiBbing to attend are excused,
fj-om classes between those hours.
.This Is the only girls' event of the
year for which time off from the rou--
tin work Is asked of the faculty, and
S-hon thp. number of .half holidays
aranted to tho men or to the whole
School for all sorts of things during
fthe year is considered, the girls' holi
day of two hours seems fair and well
! At present the-pennant; a veteran af
fair of red'silk and gold, bearing the
Insignia of many victorious classes,
is fin the possession of the juniors,
- -;' - -
who will strive hard to retain it.
None of tho teams this year are es
pecially well organized, though all
have been playing off and on for some
monthB. In fact no class seems quite
sure of its own line-up and very, like
ly will not be until the moment of
play. However the contest is expect
ed to be just as exciting as though all
the teams were veterans, knowing
where to find each other and thorough
ly versed In concerted work; and just
as enthusiastic support Is expected
from the team partisans.
Tho opening, feature will be the usual
parade of the "teams accompanied by
their respective mascots. Tho latter
often tike the form of wild animals,
clowns, barnyard fowls, of freaks from
the Eden Musee. Then the seniors
play the first half of their match
lth the juniors, after which tho soph
omores play a half against the fresh
men. Then follows the second half
of the senior-junior game. After an in
'termlssion the. winners meet for tho
"decisive contest. Ab far aB can be
learned, the teams of flvo players,
with their suostttutes, will be made
up from the following: ,

PLAN NEW SYSTEM.
A NEW BOOK.
The Difficulties of Registration Are
to Be Reduced.
The Registrar has proposed a now
system' of registration which, If adopt
ed, will bo, put In force for the first
semester of 1908-09. One idea is to
suvo tlmo by having all students pick
their courses and file them in the
Registrar's office 'before going home
in June, thus enabling all classes to
organize and begin work at 'the end
of registration week, Instead of at
tho beginning of the next week.
Another proposed Improvement is
tho issuing of the schedule of classes
In the spring Instead of In the fall.
Thus It would not occur, as It often
does now, that a student having
picked his course from the catalogue,
must distort tho whole course upon
consuming the schedule 'because of
conflicts between tho various classes.
Prospective Freshmen may also
choose their courses before leaving
homo and profit 'by the advice of their
friends, parents and older University-
The plan is explained in detail by
the following extracts from a circular
recently issued by the Registrar:
1. Regular or unclassed students in
all colleges must lodge in tho Rela
tor's Office by June 1, 1908, their pro
iposed schedules for tho first semester
The schedules of classes will bo.
published by May 15.
Three days are given to registra
tion for the first semester of 1908
1909 which begins Tuesday, Septem
ber 16, and ends Thursday, September
17. Classes meet for organization Fri
day, September 18, and class work
begins Monday, September 21.
It Is required that each student
present to his adviser each semester,
at the tlmo of registering, the' specific
course or courses recommended for
that semester to apply on his major
