LAWS PROMINENT IN COLLEGE

Lack of Afternoon Classes Enables
Lawyers to Enter University
To a great many people the College
of Law H looked upon aB being a
graduate school, where Rb members
are Interested solely In the pursuit of
their legal studies, maintaining an at
titude of Indifference toward the life
and affalrB of the University. Hut
thlB idea is easily repelled when their
attention Is called to the activity of
law students In the enterprises of the
school and of their general promi
nence in all walks of student life
The fact that law student h are not
confined to afternoon classes or suf

assignments, makes It possible for
them to indulge quite heavily In ath

football letters this season, eight of
them were registered In the law col
lege This includes Captain Shonka
In this connection it 1b Interesting to
note that for the past four years the
captain has been a law student. Of
the ten basketball letter men. four
hailed from the law school, while on

as to be in the way.

Is not strange that the laws should
compose the majority of the debat
