Chicken Pie, Roast Potatoes, Gravy,
Hot Biscuits, Coffee and Other
Appetizing Viands to Be
Served By Boys.
Chicken pot plo, roast potatoes,
gravy, hot biscuits, and othor things
too numerous to mention, prepared
with the skill of a Frohch chef, await
those who attend the annual Y. M. C.
A. pot-pie supper, Saturday night Oc
tober 17, in tho dining room of St.
Paul's M. u. cnurch. That chicken pie
it would require volumes to proporly
describe. There Is just one flavor,
just one" crust and that is tho plo
which Dr. has made for tho Y.
M. C. A. at tho annual suppers for
tho past several years. It is often
said that a boy is easiest roached
through nis stomaca. Perhaps that
explains why the univorslty boys have
such a worm spot in their hearts for
Dr. Payne, perhaps it don't but one
fact remains and that is all of tho fel
lows have a warm regard for Mr.
Payne and his chicken pies.
Spuds with Bkins on, baked to a turn
what more could one wish for. Un
der the careful watch of Chef Payne
and his corps of assistants they come
out soft and mealy and exceedingly
appetizing. Flooded in brown gravy,
also prepared by Mr. Payne they bring
back tho recollections of homo, and
mother's cooking. Thon there are tho
hot biscuits, the coffeo, and all those
little accompaniments which go to
make up a square meal. No one
knowB, no one can appreciate what a
Y. M. C. A. supper, cooked by Dr.
Payne means until he has attended
one himself. It is safe to say thon,
that he will not need to bo urged to go
the following year.
Eat All You Please.
Buppers have always cost tho Y. M. C.
A. from ton to twenty dollars, but Iho
committee has decided to make no
change in the price of the supper, s.t
that it will bo the same as in previous
years, twenty centB.
Following the supper it is probable
that subscriptions will bo taken of
those who desire to assist the Y. M.
C. A. Tho finance committee tak-s
this means of raising the funds oncn
year, rather than resorting to a per
sonal canvass among tho students, per
ferring that the subscriptions should
bo entirely voluntary. It should be
remembered by every one that the
subscription is entirely voluntary and
the supper is given primarily to bring
students of the university together. It
is a place for first year men and up
per classmen to meet an excellent
chance for tho freshmen to learn the
ways of tho univorslty men.

Have you over sat down to a meal
where tho waiter would bring in a
bit of that and a bit of this? No
danger of that at tho Y. M: C. A. sup
per. There Is more than enough for
all, there are a bunch of follows who
are there for tho purpose of waiting on
you, so it Is up to you to eat until
your heart's content. Within one mo

ono of the four or five hundred stu

With president E. W. Hills, Joe Do

certain v that the speaking end of tho
.program will bo well looked after.
And perhaps Dr. Payne can he inducod
to render" that little song which he
gave last year, -''No Onp Works But
Father." It is very probable that some
Y. M. C. A. speakers of national re

One feature of the supper in past
years has not been mentioned and
that is, that tho suppers haVo never
been a financial success. They are.
not given for a financial' purpose hut

To Be Held at Lincoln Hotel Next Fri
day Evening.
At 7:00 p. m., noxt Friday there will
occur the first of a socles of faculty
dinners. The members of tho univer
sity faculty will meot at tho Lincoln
hotel and will there enjoy a delectablo
menu and a period of general sociabili
ty. For some time .numerous members
of the faculty have felt thai the stron
ous university life threatened to make
serious Inroads upon their social in
stinct. Many of the faculty know each
other only slightly, or only by name,
or not at all. It is therefore deemed
desirable to afford a few opportunities
during the year to cultivate the social
Last spring a movement was started
to organize a university faculty club,
but owing to tho difficulty of securing
commodious and suitable quarters, tho
scheme had to be abandoned. The
readiness with which the various pro
fessors and instructors, have taken up
tho "dinner plan showB how greatly
in need of the social element they fdol
themselves. Some seventy havo al
ready signified their intention to at
tend the first dinner at the Lincoln,

For the last time until thoy moot

evening at Antelopo park. Thoy re

terized their work Tuesday, and from
their showing last night it is safo to
predict that tho two or three hundred
rooters who are to make tho trip to
Minneapolis will not return disap

hopes of tho CornhUBkors havo risen
and fallen with tho coming and going
of the Minnesota game, but this ytoar

with the confidence and determination
which forbid the possibility of defeat
Thoy intend that for tho first time In
six years the Minnesota braves shall
bo scalped on their own battle-ground
and it is tne solo aim and desire of
every player who is making the trip
to do his utmost toward accomplish
ing this end. In addition to tho con
fidence whidh tho players havo in

feeling that the earnest moral support
of the entire student body is bohind

Fire at Illinois.
Fire broke out in the top floor of
tho Main Hall of tho Univorslty of
Illinois I'rlday evening and for a time
threatened destruction of the building.
It seems to have caught just under tho
stairs on tne fourth floor and gained
considerable headway beforo the alarm
was sounded. A quick response was
made by the department and effective
work was begun at once. At twelve
o'clock the fire was completely undor
control and later was extinguished en
tirely. The greatest damage has come from,
water, although Adelphlc hall and the
engineering drawing rooms are very
badly hurt by the flames. The- water
turned on wherever possible, ruined
books and equipment on all floors. On
the west side is the damage especially
great and the basement is literally
fuil oi water. Members of three fire
departments, professors, students and
townsmen worked faithfully during
the trouble and carried many articles
of value from the water-soaked bui

The scrimmage work last night was
a reproduction of the oxcollont show

ness and speed and the yells of "King"

greater frequency. The coach at last
