For, be it known, this Is the week
commonly called "Engineers' Week"
when his Excellency, "Differential and
Integral Calculus," is told to get hence
and the campus Is dotted with groups
of grimy galoots gesticulating fiercely
and planning outniges upon society in
All who hiive occasion to be in the
vicinity of the Co F Armory at Seven

ire cautioned to don their ancestral tin
armor, and stuff their cars with cotton
if they expect to survive the night. For
It is here, we sire told, that the perpe
trators of these heinous offenses will
assemble for their council of war.
What other dimes will follow In the
wake of this pow wow Is hard to pre
dict. But it is safe to say that on Thurs
day will be the big noise. The shop
men have been preparing for this
holiday for a long time. In tho first

antly surprised when they should conio

and find not a single stude. But It
seems that a certain member of the
faculty wits warned by si dream of this
nefarious scheme, and immediately

a diplomatic turn of mind, thereupon
announced that there would be no en
gineering classes Thursday. Now,
what do you know about that?
To reaj) the full benefits of this fes
tive day th" shop men will rise early
and convene at K:30 on the athletic
field Here the four clans will en
gage in two bitter conflicts. The
weapons will be the baseball and tho
willow stick. The C. E.'s will play tho
Ag. Engineers, and the E. E.'s tho
M. E.'s Here Is tho way they lino up:
