invitod the other classes to join them
in a real sneak day. The freshman
class ddclded to join in tho movement.
The seniors did not take definite ac
tion. According to rumor the matter was
reported to Dean Hastings in tho
afternoon by two seniors. Tho dean
immediately expressed his disapproval
of the plan. Ho talked to alt tho
classes and asked them td do nothing
which so plainly violated tho regents'
rule regarding skipping.
In the evening a Ijasty meoting was
called to discuss tho dean's request,
and about fifteen of tho law students
attended. After, much discussion jt
was decided to abandon the plan.
However it was not known whether
everyone would agree with tho senti
ment expressed a't this poorly attend
ed mooting. In Order to make plain
tho faculty's position on tho matter,
Chancellor Avery had all tho Western
Union Telegraph company's messen
gers busy from 2 to 4 a. m. delivering
the following note to the members dt
tho law college:
"Sir: Dean Hastings Informs mo
that the proposed 'Law; Skip Day' has
been abandoned and I wish (o ex
