WISCONSIN TO MAKE CHANGE

Tho board of regents of tho Uni

The practical joker could not keep
out of tho limelight for a whole year,
if ho tried. Yesterday this fun provok
ing creature seized upon a prominent
member of tho freshman law class and
sent tho frightened victim on a mis
sion to the police station. The poor
follow discovered tho Joke when ho
arrived and In answer to his queries
was told that ho was not wanted.
It happened this way: A dignified
Junior with a star on his coat accost
ed tho freshman In tho hall and told
him that ho was wanted, and must go
to the-police station at once. Not car
ing to miss a class the freshman
begged hard and was finally lot off on
condition that ho would voluntarily
appear as soon as tho hour was over.
But the nervous strain bocamo too
great and before tho hour was half
over tho "arrested1 man" .made his Way
to the station and told them that ho
was thero. Tho officers woro equally
perplexed and knew nothing about any
such person being wanted. Then ho
