ANNUAL' ONION BANQUET
Sixty Plates for Literary 'Society at
The Union Literary Society held
their annual banquet at the Llndell
hotel last Friday evening. Between
fifty and sixty plates were laid In tho
newly finished banquet room. After
tho dinner, which was served In the
usual "a la Llndoll" style, several of
tho members responded to their as
signed toasts. Some of the toaBts,
however, bordered on tho line of
"roasts." Miss Grace Richards, on
"When tho Green Gets Back In the
Trees," displayed her usual native
wit; while R. C. Waldo strotched his
subject, "When My Dreams Come
True," to take In tho future of every
member of the society, putting greai
stress on tho matrimonial tendencies
of some present. Otto W. Walton gave
very poetic romlnlscences on "When
tho Moon Hangs Over Me." Mi3S
Florence Wombalals did oxtromoly
well with her subject, "How It Hap
pened," and Miss Brltaanlca Daugh
ters, an alumnus, gave "The Old Year
and the Now," taking a historic view
of affairs back to the organization of
the" Union Literary Society In 1870.
The program for noxt Friday night
will bo given by the members of tho
society not now In school, and may "bo
called an "old members' " program.

lively meeting, as it is said that soma
of the men opposed to tho county op
tion resolution, whlclfwas adopted a
few weeks ago, aro-golng to makd an
effort to reconsider with tho object of
rescinding It. This was adopted by a
comparatively close vote, after a
somewhat heated discussion, and
members say that those opposed will
endeavor to marshal enough of their
adherents to overcome tho county op
tlonlsts. Tho advisability of accept
ing ha proposals of tho Independence
league and taking W. H. Hearst back
Into the party as ono of its leaders
will 1)0 discussed. A resolution to that

pressed themselves as being in favor

After being defeated by a narrow

day, the members of tho froshnun
baseball team departed for Crete Sat
urday morning, and thero thoy
smothorod tho Tigers from Doano Col-

The weather was cold, und when
ever the ball was caught it felt like r
bullet, The freshmen wore gamo,
though, and tho Tigers had a hard
time holding them down as well os
they did. Tho first year mon slugged"
Uko fiends and what thoy did to the
star Tiger twirler mado tho collegian

Hunt the 8tar Hitter.
Hunt, tho nifty little catcher for tho
freshmen, was the hero of tho hour
Ho slugged the ball like a voteran and
the hits came when thoy meant runs.
A homer, a triple-bagger and a two
sacker were tho total of tho Bcalps he
captured along tho batting line, and
tho Doano boys trembled in their
thocs every time ho came up to tho
plate with the willow in his fingers.
Both big hits scored Frank.
Tho freshmen used two men on the
slab, and they did effective woric.
Carr opened up tho conteBt.and narv n
score or a hit did the boys from Crotc
register off Of him. Klepsor succeed-
e'd Carr in the fifth inning, and the
lad from Weeping Water dollvorod tho
goods, ns ho was ablo to hold down
tho collegians with but two Bcorc-r
