Preliminaries Held for Charter Day
The preliminaries for the lnter-fra-ttrnity
relay race,. which is one of the
events on the Charter Day athletic
program, were held in the Gym lant
Tuesday afternoon. Seven teams had
entered the preliminaries, but owing
to the fact that Burrus of Sigma
Alpha' Epsilon and Flower of Alpha
Tuu Omega failed to appear, those
fraternities withdrew their teams.
First Heat Alpha Theta Chi, first;
I'elta Upsllon, second; Delta Tau
Delta, third; Phi Kappa Psl, fourth.
Time, 1 minute 17:1 seconds.
Second Heat Phi Kappa Psl, first;
Kappa Sigma, second. Time, 1 min
ute 1G.1 seconds.
The Alpha Theta Chi team would
doubtless have made even better time
than they did had they not been un
fortunate in upsetting boxes, thereby
losing considerable time. The race
this year bids fair to bo a hotly con
tested one, with the chances of win
ning perhaps slightly in favor of the
Alpha Theta Chis or the Delta Up
silons. The. teams which qualified are:
Alpha Theta Chi.
Delta Tau Delta.
Phi Kappa Psi. ,
PHI ALPHA TAU.

pared talk on the message setting
forth its principal -features and tho
points upon which there wns room for
discussion. Each member then dis
cussed the message extemporaneously
for five minutes and at the closeof his
discussion selected the one to follow
It was almost the unanimous senti
ment among men of all different pollti1
cal affiliations that the action of
President RooBevelt is honest and
brave and that he has no political
reasons for such a message. The em
ployers' liability clause and. the omis
sion of any recommendation on the fi
nancial situation were also taken up
At the conclusion of the program Dr.
French told of his trip to Kansas and
the enthusiasm shown In that Institu
tion over oratorical contests. He at
tributed tho exceptional Interest partly
to- the fact that tho institution takes
part in few intercollegiate contests, and
hence centers its attention on' inter
It is the purpose o'f the Phi Alpha
Tau to hold similar informal discus
sions every two weeks during the se
mester in order to give the members
practice In talking on their feet with
the additional benefits coming from an
exchange of Ideas on live questions.
