Recently the Lincoln hotel handed
in a largo number of accounts to Pro
fessor Chatburn, chairman of tho com
mittee on Btudont finances, showing
that Btudents In charge of tho Uni
versity hops and parties have been
negligent in paying the bill for the
dance hall or "ordinary," or both In
the aggregate the committee doea not
see fit to give out the definite amount
of these accounts, as perhaps it is not
thoroughly known even to them, but,
to say the least, it is no small sum.
From a number of Interviews with
some of the chairmen of these hopB,
the committee have come to tho con
clusion that these deficits have not
come about through intended embez
zlement on tho part of the dance com
mittees, but rather on account of care
lessness in keeping straight the ac
counts of the dance and receiving a
receipt for all the money paid out.
One Btudenl swears that ho had in
his possession about twenty ticketB to
a certain hop to sell, and out of these
twenty tickets he sold three; he
brings his wltneBseB to Bwear to this
fact, yet ho cannot account for the
other seventeen tickets that he did
not sell

feshor Tuckerman of tho student
finance committee, "that are making
the matter a mean thing to handle
