Football Schedule for 1908.
The question of election of the stu
dent members of the Athletic Board
is still being discussed in spite of the
Board's action in regard to the recent
ly proposed changes. The board did
not deem them adequate. It grants,
however, that any change in the meth
or of voting, which would foster in
terest in athletics is advisable. Plans
are being considered for the alteration
of the present method of election with
the hope of 'satisfying all concerned
directly or remotely with University
The first is the organlzatibn of a
Students' Athletic Association, the
members receiving the right to wear
an "E. A. A." button and attend all
games at-halt price, upon the payment
of annual dues of 11.00. Another plan is
the payment of an annual fee of $4.00
for a membership in the Association
and admission to all gamed. This is
the "Minnesota way." By either plan
- the 'members 'eject their representa
tives. Whether or not the Board can
afford to grant admission at half-price
is a matter of speculation at pres
ent, but it Is believed that the first
plan might be successfully carried
out It one thousand students would
join Uie association.
State Farm Students would ajso be
eligible to membership.
The Board, as yet, have not definite
ly decided what action, will be taken
in regard to the matter of the pro
posed plans. '

pieltminarles had boon run off about
two weeks ago. The first fall of the
final round between Jim Harvey and
P W. JohnBon (which was to be de
cided by the beBt two of three falls)
was held at the gymnastic exhibition

wrestled for seveli minutes without
either one securing a fall. After a
few minutes' rest, they went nt it
again and Harvey won the first fall
with a body hold after three minutes
6? hard work. Wednesday evening
the men met in the gymnasium to de
cide tho championship. No time limit
was placed upon the bout and eighteen
and a half minutes had passed before
Harvey won the second falj, and wity
it the championship. The two' men
wero very evenly matched. Johnson
is perhaps a little more closer at the
game, but this advantage is offset by
