Tho first of tho new series of 5
o'clock medical convocations took
place yesterday afternoon In tle Tem
ple theater. Dr. H. M. McClanahan of
Omaha was tho speaker of tho after
noon, and although his talk was not
at all technical in its nature It was
listened to largely, by medical stu
dents. Dr. ' McClanahan emphasized
the many .forces that were destroying
so many of tho children and, incapaci
tating others throughput their y lives,
making 'thorn not, only a. burden to
themselves but to 'tho state as well,
and detracting from their yalue as. citi

as follows: t k -,

Considerable excitement was arous

a dozen little follows wore gathered

MINI8TER8 HELP IN THE WORK
Take Part. In, Noon .Meeting of the
V. W. C. A.
Recently a new phase of Y., W. 0, A.
work, has been developed at the uni
versity. Pastors of the city churches
have beenLbrought to the university
to take part' in .the noon meetings
which the Y; W. C; A. Is .holdingWhile
this la not of interest in itself l(j
marks a new attitude toward the Y.
Wand Y. M.-.C. A. by the ministers
of the city, .
According to those who are con-
nected with the work it is contended
that this is a loiig step in advance' of
thopositipn hel by those 'organlza-
uons m tne-past It waa felt by .the
ministry that the Y. W, and Y,.M.
C; A. organizations were a hindrance
to the progress of -their work,, but this
feeling has changed to one xyt hearty
co-operation. " t

Hills was elected prosldont of the
senior class Just one wook.ago Thurs
day. As soon as tho votos.had been
counted and the tallies niado. Hills
took possession of the office, The-first
duty in sight and tho most important
was tho appointment of committee
without number. Ono of thoso august
bodies as shown by class tradition
was called tho Ivy Day Charter orator
committee, and its duty was hold to
bo tho selection of a mombo.r of. ,the
fourth year organization who should
stand before tho assembled multitudes
d a bright spring day in May and
deliver tho high-sounding . phrases
which make up tho Ivy Day oration.

. .A Useless Job, ,1.
Some years ago an onterprlslngi sen- "
ior politician while gunning) f6r.. the,
presidency discovered that the prbmlse
of tho ivy dayjionor was a most po
tent force "tiT usoin "gaining thV sup
port of some, ono of his classmates.
Ho was a wise politician and'he imme
diately made uso' of his knowledge.
Ho discovered that tho orator f was
appointed by a committee appointed
by tho president. Such had been the
traditionary custpm for all tho ages
of the past But a'llttlo thing like that
did not daunt the politician. He.went
to w,ork, and: found, three people who
promised to appoint .whomever, J10
Wished them; to name . as ivy' . day

ian promised tHo honor to a classmate .
who was abld to wield copilderaibie
influence. The classmate Aused his in
fluonpe. The politician was ..efecfed
president of, tho clWs. He appointed
the committee of three.. They chose
the influential classmate for the, r Ivy :.
day place. The deed, was done. '
Since the .Interesting discovery of
the amateur politician,'- the committee
tradition has peed maintained oniy so
far as the form was concerned. Bach
