FICERS AT 11:30,
Freshman Electton to Come Tuesday
With Thrco Candidates for Prosl
dencyand With Little In
terest Manifest as Yet.
The junior Class will moot at 11:30
thlB morning In Memorial hall for tho
election of a vice-president, secrotary,
and treasurer and for tho transaction
of other minor matters. The repre
sentation which the class Is to have
in the CornhUBlcer will bo discussed
and a decision will doubtless be made
on the amount to be appropriated for
this purpose.
No active campaign Is on for any of
the minor class ofllcos. It is not-likely
that moro than two Candidates will
appear for any ono place and It is
possible that ona'or moro ofheos will
go by acclamation.
Sophomores Talking.
The sophomore election Tuesday, at
which ,Nyo Morohduse was elected
president of the class by the support
of tho law freshmen, had Its after
itiath yesterday In the shapo of much
campus discussion. The talk brought
forth no practical results, liowover.
.Morehouse's election was respon
sible for a largo amount of indigna
tioivfrbm numerouos- straight-sophomore
academics who supported other
candidates. These men claimed that
the law man was elected by tho votes
qf senior academics taking freshman
law work, and they'bolleved that these
students had no rlghtto vote as soph
omores, A 'charge of ballot stuffllng
Avas also made.
Tuesday night a move was started
for tho circulation of a petition call
ing upon tho first semester president
and tho registrar to declare the elec
tion void In view of the objections
made, and to call a second election at
which senior acadonilc-lawa should not
be allowed to vote. This move had no
practical result yesferday and the pe
tition had not been started late in the
day. It Is within the province ,of
either the registrar or tho first se
mester president to take tho' matter
Into his own hands with a call for an
election. Whether or not any such
action will bo taken 1b problematical.
Not Personal Fight.
f "I ani not personally soro at Iore-i
house," said a prominent sophomoro
yestordny, "and I "believe that most of
tho others who are protesting hlB elec
tion will agree with hie" Itf saying that
the Issue is not, a personal one, There
are many who wero not originally sup
porters of Coulter who are yet much-
angered at his defeat "by Morehouse,
but their feeling is not based, I bo
lloye, on pprsonal objections. Tho
matter is rather a question of prlnj
clplo and for that reason the feeling
Is nil1 tho moro lntonao, fc
"The action of the laws in attempt
,lng to run Iho "affairs of the straight
academics' Is to bedoplored, whether
or not a man cares personally for one
candidate or the other, There would
not he so much objection If the
straight freshmen laws only ' ttnd
voted. They may hayo the rlglt, but
cortalnly the seplors have not Tho
fact that a largo number of the final
ballots wore stuffed iq not proof that
they wero nil In fayor of Morehouse,
but this Is t,hovYlqw( tho straight soph
omorqs will takof or it in consideration
of tho fact that a part of' hs support
was undoubtedly gained by fraud In
letting tho seniors vqto."
Thomas Ladles' Man.
Tho freshman election will bo held
Tuesday and tho three candidates are
beginning to warm up their campaign.
Beck's announcement Saturday has
caused Landers and Thomas to take
on ronowed activities and there was
somo lively vote-getting going on yes
terday. Thomas is tho only fraternity
man Ih the race, but Landors is receiv
ing trio backing of a number, of tho
Greek letter men. Somo of Thomas'
supporters are using the argument
thafroshmen who want to get, in tho
band wagon should climb in with their
candidate since they prophesy his
election through the aid of tho co-ed
vote. They arguo that Thomas IS a
popular man with tho girls and that
tho co-ed vote will be the deciding
factor In the content.
Landers Is depending chiefly on sup
port from the boys of the. clasjj. Ho
wos a student nt tho academy for a
torm .before entering tho university
and his acquaintance Is correspond
ingly widened. He has been prominent
In athletics for his first university
Beck hails from Montana and is
making a breezy campaign. He is
well-known to mombors of the class,
and will probably secure a good pro
portion of the vote.
Double Header Will Be Played Friday
The fourth of tho series of inter
class basket-ball games was played
last evening, between the juniors and
the freshmen resulting In a Bcoro of
16 to 11 In favor of the Juniors. The
game was fast and especially towards
the second half was very rough, Both
teams had good teain work, but wero
"eBp'ecIally weak In their attempt to
locato tho basket.
Thus far each team has played two
gamea and each team has ono game
still to play The Btandlngof tho
different team. b at the,present tlmo Is
ns follows " 4 ... '
Juniors . T. .". '.'.......... .". 1.000
Sophomores '.500
Freshmen 500
Sonlors .....' 000
In tho two games that remain to bo
played the juniors will play tho Soph
omores and tho seniors the freshmen.
However tho senior-freshman game
comes out tho seniors have on chance
of winning tho series. If, however,
tho freshmen win and the sophomores
also should win in the junlor-Bopho-more,
game thon tho juniors, fresh
men and sophomores will be tied' for
first place. If the juniors win in the
Junior-sophomore gamo It will mean
than tho Juniors win tho series. If tho
sophomores win in the sophomdro-
junior gamo and tho seniors win In
tho senior-freshman! gamo it will mean
that the juniors and sophomores will
bo tied for first place.
,A small crowd was n attendance at
the game, last ovoiilng, but It-made up
In enthusiasm, what It packed In, size.
Tho ma'nngemont Is desirous of getting
a larger crowd out for tho final games
of the serjos and sq Jias decided to
hold both the Friday andi Saturday
,game8 between foun and, six Friday
afternoon. It is exnectcd that a double
Jlieader at this lime in the day will
draw a large crowd.
