Planned by Dean Richards The working planB of the new me chanical engineering laboratories were prepared during the winter of 1907 and 1908 by Dean Richards of the college of engineering. In the spring of 1908 the contracts were let. and the building waB com pleted in the fall of 1909. In style- of, archltecturoi the build ing may be classed as a modification of the Roman Doric, which gives to the e.ier'for nn ulr of massive stabil ityin spite or the large windows winch is in liarmony With the "uses fo which the. building Ib put. The ex terior Is finished with "Iron spot" or ''flash" pressed brick, trimmed; with terra cotta which matches the brick. The roof Is of red tile and the cor nices are of copper, the whole giving a pleasing color effect In shades of brown. The- Interior construction of the building Is of tlio most substantial character, the floors being of rein forced concrete throughout, carried by liftvy steel beams which arc support ed by steel columns. Since tho build ing is primarily for laboratory pur poses, the floors were- made heavy enough to carry the largo weight of moving machinery which comes upon thein. All of the" halls have wainscot ing of white enameled brick with a io'ugh jilastered- -finish. .ahoyj-TJic The cabman heaved a mournful sigh, and started In to storm and cry. No money Jingled In his pants, ho eyed his bony team askance, and gave his cab a sorry stare a cab In. TfeedOf much re pair, he spit his quid upon tho walk, and straightway started In to talk. Said he. "Alas how times have changed, I well can think when prices ranged from three to six and even more, and overy hack In town hold four. Thoso TJnl boys dug up the cash that kept us hack men full of hash. They'd soak their clothes, and even smile to take a cab and come In style. All them wns days I'll ne'er forget, it mnkes me weep already yet; I hnd three Bquare meals every day and each horse had a bale of hay. No matter how the student cuBsed, he couldn't break tho hackmen's trust, It was no jso to hand us talk, . they'd either juavo to pay orwalk. Them days waB simply grapeB for me, but times hns changed as you can see. My services they don't request, it scorns they like tho street Sars best. The boys have one and all agreed that cab's are something they don't need. The girls, no matter what they say, they either come or stay away; B-Gosh, as far as I can uoe, they've tied the Indian sign on me." R. M.

He was announced yestorday by some of his friends. Kennoth Wherry is a member of Deta Theta PI fraternity, lie is a brother of Arthur Whorry, who was the first president of the class of 191.1. He Is a .popular fellow and is expect ed to mako a gopd race. Several or his closo friends were actively at work Sunday, visiting among the classmen to lino up votes.

The raco in the sonlor class goes merrily on, with three candidates all working hard to annex tho Job. The threo-cornored contest In the Junior class also attracts the attention of tho student body. The rncos In the two upper classes are fjccomlng excit ing. Ambcrson, Holland and Hath away aro tho three men who seek the senior leadership. Pearso, DoylcB and Rogers aro the three office seekers of tho third year class. A One-Man Race. Although some, who claim to know, say that Clifford Phillips Is to have rtomo opposition In tho sophomore class, It Is hardly thought probable that any new candidates will appear later than today. It -Is generally un derstood that Phillips has a strong following or TrFends In the second year class. One of tho strange things about it is that the sophomore class had only one candidate at the elec tion in the fall. A class seldom has two successive elections without a good race livening up the second. A one-man campaign is not a stimulant This is Baldt07 Membership Committee Meets Tonight in Association Rooms.
