Not In years has so much real work
been done to make a class dance a
success, if the statements of tho com
mittee count for anything. Othor
schools havo been canvassed for
Jdeas; original plans havo been worked
up by the individuals of the commit

Not less than twenty-five alumni

"It novor rains but It pours." ThlB
old adage has again proven )ts
This time It is In tho political cir
cles pf tho university. A third candi
date is out for the presidency of tho
senior clasB for the coming somostqr.
Yesterday J. A. Scotney announced
that he was an aspirant for presiden
tial honors and stated that ho had
started his campaign. Tho other two
candidates for this office are W. A.
Jones and Jess Clark, both of whom
announced their candidacy a couplo
of days ao.
Scotney, who Is tho third candidate,
Is registered In tho collogo of arts and
science, but Is taking the six-year law
course of tho university. Jiq Is pap
tain of tho Pershing Rifles and of com
pany I In the cadet battalion. He Is a
member of the Palladlan Literary So
ciety, but as a barb ho says ho Is not
baoked by any "clique." Ho has been
very -active in class politics ovor slnco
he entered school, and Is now asking
tho support of his classmates in this
campaign for class honors.
That the announcement of a third
candidate has created, a large amount
of interest among tho mombers of tho
senior class has been noticed and tho
action of the engineers in supporting
tho other two candidates has yot to
be heard from. A prominent engineor
stated yesterday when only two can
didates were out that the action of
the class In that college would depond
upon whether a third man came out
or npt. If- a candidate announced him
self It was highly possible that a cau
cus of- tho engineers would be held in
order to detormino which of the twa
engineering candidates they would

his intentions in a few days.
