At a mooting this morning, hold in
U. 108, preliminary stops wore takon
for tho organization of a University
Press club. Somo of tho lower class
men interoatdd In journalism woro In
attendance and from now on an actlvo
canvass will bo conducted for tho pur
pose of securing now members. Asldo
from tho appointment of a member
ship committee, a constitution commit
tee, which will draft a constitution
for tho now organization, was appoint
ed and will make a roport at tho next
meeting on Tuosday. At that time,
tho roport of tho membership commit

"on tho matter of new momborB takon.
On Thursday of noxt wooku a second
meeting will bo hold at which an elec
tion of officers will take placo, and a
permanent organization offectod.
Not New Movement.
Tho movement for a press club Is by
no mcanB a now one, a similar effort
being made laBt spring but being left
over to this year on account of tho
lateness in starting. At that time it
waB definitely decided that at tho bo-
ginning of this term, a movement for
the club would bo instituted and an
organization effected. It was thought
that a course in Journalism or rahor
a department of journalism would bo
created by the board of regonts this
year, but tho board thought that tho
nuriibor interested in this line of work
would not warrant' the ostubllBhmont
of this department at 'the present
time. However, It will undoubtedly bo
added to tho university in tho noxt
Two years ago a proas club was or
ganized at tho university but at tho
conclusion of the school year, so many
of tho momborB loft school that no
attempt was ovor made to reorganize.
While in existence tho club accom
plished a good dpifl but on account
of tho momborB being in control of
the college paper, tho charge was
made that tho club was organized for
tho solo purpose of controlling the
publication, a charge which afterwards
proved, groundless. Nevertheless tho
clvargo had tho tendency to Injure
tho club and thle was another reason
why no attempt was made to organize
again laBt year.
., The membership of the now club
will be limited and wi)l probably only
include about twenty men. To this
club, alumni as well as students in the
university are eligible. Tho main re
striction' la that the applicant must
not only be interested In journalism but
must .also .intend to enter that field
upon leaving echool. Ho must also
have bad eomo experience on.ta paper
of some reputation. Election to mem
bership will bo entirely .by ballot and
the, charter members aro tho ones to
decldo the eligibility of the applicant.
The membership committee intend to
mako a canvass of tho school of those
particularly Interested in this lino of
work, and request that all applicants
for membership leave tholr names with
tho rhotorlc department.
A jiumbpr of faculty members have
expressed' themselves 'as greatly
pleased with tho plan, and aro assist
ing In tho movement. Tho need of tho
press club has ofton been pointed out,
' since a large number of the studepts
in the university will enter journalism
upon leavlnj school.
The object of the. club Is not, only
to promoto interest in journalism, but
Is also to promoto a moro social feel
ing among the mombors of tho organ
ization. While tho primary purposo
Is one of Instruction in nowspapor
work, yet tho club Is organized with
tho purpose of making tho bond of
friendship betweon tho members
stronger. It is tho intention of those
in the load to secure a room to which
the members may come at any time,
to study and ior recreation. A num
ber of tho better newspapers and
some good works on journalism will
be kept on file constantly. Twlco a
month the club will hold meetings, at
which addresses and discussions on
newspaper work will bo glvon by tho
members and by newspaper men of tho
Tho benefits to bo derived from tho
organization are many. Besides creat
ing a love for journalism In tho mem
ber It will also afford hi m social ad
vantages. LECTURE8 BY NOTED ENGINEER8.
