jfOLDING TRY01TS FOR TEAMS
GREEK LETTER MEN STEADILY
AT WORK IN QYMNA8IUM.
Large Number of Contestants Prom-Iced-for
Annual-Indoor Meet To
Be-Held Friday Evening at
7:30 in Armory.
An inform.nl dance will be one of
tho featuros offered by the university
fraternities to thoBO who go to tho
armory Friday evening to 'witness tho
annual inter-frat athletic meet. Tho
hop will bo held in Memorial hall and
will be similar to the usual bosket-
ball informals. Good music will be
furnished, and It Ib expected that an
excellent crowd will bo out to enjoy
tho sixteen dances. -
In order that 'tho dance may be of
regulation length, tho meet will be
gin promptly at 7:110 p. m. and will bo
run off with all possible rapidity. In
some cases where there will ue no
conflicts, two or moro events will be
pulled off at the Bamc time in order
to yconomizo iho 'minutes n'rtd have
more time for dancing later In tho
evening. With the dancing as an add
ed .attraction the fraternity managers
have little fear but that thoy will be
able to draw a good crowd. There
are no other university affairs on
that evening and the meet will hold
undivided sway. .
To Be Nine Events.
There will bo nine events In tho
athletic "program. Two of these, the
tug-of-war and the relay will each
pount 10 points for the winning fra
ternity with 6 and 4 for second and
third places respectively. The other
ivonts will count five points for first,
for Becond and 1 for third. Places
tower than third do not count. Tho
line events are relay race for teams
f three men each, tug of war, 25-
Sard dash, high kick, high. jump, rope
climb, snot put, fence vault, and polo
Each fraternity may enter not
jnore than three men In each event.
Thus ihere Is always a possibility
that one fraternity will secure tho
entire number of points offered by one
evont capable of winning first, sec
ond and third.
The relay teams will hold a try
out at 4 p. m. Wedensday In order
to eliminate all but four teams.
Those four will run Friday. In other
events preliminaries and finals Will ull
be run off Friday ovoning.
Tickets .for the meet are Celling for
25 cents. Bleachers on both the
north a,nd south sides of the armory
will bo reserved as .for basket-ball
games. There will, without doubt, be
plenty of room for all who attend,
and yet thoBo who wish the best
scats will need to secure them before

With tho worst storm of the season
raging yesterday, student activities
were limited to mad rushes from one
building to another with most of tho
time spent aB noar to the radiators
as it was possible to get. Even tho
most ventures;ome hesitated to ex
pose themselves to tho full forco ' of
tho wind, whero It swept with tre-
mendftus force around tho corners.
It was a straggling and uncertain
crowd that braved tho elements In
ari effort to reach tf o'clock classes,
and )t was a crowd that continued to
straggle In .until tho hour was nearly
over. In many cases all tho reward
that was earned In return for tho
attempt to be present on time was
to find that the classes had been
dismissed because of cold rooms.
Little Heat on Campus.
As is always the case during severe
weather It was impossible to get any
heat at all into many rooms, the
professors on tho upper floors of Uni
versity liall being themaln sufferers.
Dr. Maxoy was one of those unfor
tunates who found th.o heat a minua
quantity, and was rescued by his
cjass just as he was being overcome
by tho frigid atmosphere.
Tho trouble was not, however, all
confined to tho students, Purchasing
Agent Clarke had erected a bulletin
board In front of the Administration
building- on which ho marked a list
of books that' hnd been received by
tho book store. This morning when
ho arrived on the campus he. found
that all traces of chalk marks bad
been cleaned off during the' night and
tho board was as clean as though It
had been washed. Assistant Regis
trar Rutlodgo was seen at an early
hour making a desperate attempt to
ennturo his bulletin board, vhlch was
giving' him a wljd cha3e.
The .Hbrary was sa crowded that

Owing to tho bad weather yester
day President Matteson postponed
tho senior class meeting until Thurs
day. This was dono after finding
that the attendance at all the classes
had beort seriously affected by tho
weather and It was feared that only
a small number of the fourth-year
men and few, If nny, of tho girls
would turn out. Ab thp last semes
ter's "presidency is considered to) be,
jjbo most important of the college
course it was thought essential that
tho choice should be a careful orio
and the president preferred to post
pone tho meeting uud have the now
president be the cnolce of- the ma
jority of the class rather than to hold
the election and have the cholco fall
to a small minority.
Both candidates favored thot post
ponement aB the fairest thing pos
sible nnd tho only way to hnvo
everyone satisfied and make It a rep
resentative class election. Immedi
ately after tho announcement of the
postponement tho candidates were
busy phonlUg their adherent of tho
change of date.
The juniors had already scheduled
their class meeting for Thursday at
11:30 but realizing the senior politics
to bo niore Important tUan their own
they kindly gave up their date. Tho
Junior class election will, however,
take place at 11:30 on the following
