MAKE BIG PREPARATIONS
JUNIORS HAVE LARGE PLANS IN
VIEW FOR THEIR DEFICIT HOP
AT THE BEACH MAY 16.
TICKETS ALMOST ALL GONE
Both Sides of the Pavilion Are Being
Rushed Into Shape for First
Informal of Second
Pursuers of the terpsicherean
amusements are again notified by
Juniors, who believe that the U nl v e r
slty Bhould dance and pay for It that
the date of the widely advertised
junior relief hop la May 16 and that
the place Is Capital Beach. This
danco Is poBtively the first hop of
the open Beason at the Beach which
in the opinion of the committee adds
a distinction to pleasure. Both sides
of the pavilion have been engaged for
use by no fewer than 200 couples. Posi
tively the most finished fioor the Uni
versity has ever glided over Is guar
anteed the dancers, and the price of
all these exceptional accommodations
Is rock bottom at a dollar.
Other events will cater to this big
dance. Junior hop day Is high school
fete day. But Instead of entertaining
prospective rushees at their houses,
several fraternities have agreed to en
tertain next year's members at tho
junior hop. Others will follow suit.
Men who have never dancod before
will be extended the courtesy of the
oldest hand should they decide to be
gin with tho remainder of the Bchool
on the night of the junior dance.
Every effort is being put forth to
bring the University out. The dance
is neither in letter nor spirit limited to
juniors. The entire Btudent body 1b
welcome singly or in convenient pairs.
Boats and other Beach attractions will
be at the disposal of attending stu
dents and the rare advantage of open
air exercise Is a distinctive feature of
the junior relief hop.
Tickets have been on sale since Fri
day. They are going, going! Hurry,
or they will be gone. Over one hun
dred have alroady ben sold. Serious
inroads are daily made on tho remain
ing hundred. The dance is to bo
strictly limited, none without tickets
can hope to dance. This is an eco
nomy dance and law is law. Get that
ticket for the best dance of the year,
and date her now.

played by the girls of the university

given to the accompaniment of class

Riot Precipitated at
Wesleyan University by
Fight Over Score Board
The first class fight since they were
ruled out by the college council Borne
years ago was pulled off Tuesday aft
ernoon and evening at the Wesleyan
University In University Place. Tho
freshmen had decided that they would
givo tho University a much needed
score board for the athletic grouns.
Tho score boar dwas prepared and
before the ferBhmen were abo to make
the presentation, the sophomores se-
cured"Tho board and carried ir u
tho field In tho third Inning, with the
score correctly tabulated and the fol
lowing Inscription In sophomore colors
printed upon It: "Presented by the
Class of 1916."
This so outraged the froshmen that
disregarding all faculty and collogo
council rules that they rushoa across
the field and took the board by sheer
force of numbers.
After the game was completed the
freshies in a body came down St. Paul
street and meeting a band of sopho
mores a battle royal ensued. The fresh
men were bo much In the majority
that the result of the conflict was
merely a matter of time. "Bob" Chit
tick, a sophomore came out of the fight
so badly injured that It was neces
sary to call a physician after he had
been carried to his room. The doctor
stated that he was probably not seri
ously injured although badly bruised
and shaken. Four other members of
the sophomore class were taken cap
tlvos and carried bodily off the field.
TheBe men were carried to Havelock,
but were rescued by a band of sopho
moreB about 9:30 Tuesday evening.
Just what the reBUlt of the fight will
be Is not known. The penalty to one
or tho other classes and possibly to
both will be to lose representation in
the college council and possibly other
honors will be taken away from them.
It is impossible to state what action
the faculty will take upon tho matter
and it may be possible that they will
leave the whole thing to tho council.
Members of both classes were given
quite a shock when they saw that
Chlttick was so badly Injured, for It
was feared for some time that he had
sustained some Internal Injuries.
This Bohered both crowds and les
sened the Interest In the scrap.

Was Not Signed
by Chief Clerk
More irregularities In tho passage of
bills by the recent legislature cropped
out Wednesday. This time, defects
wore found to be due to the failure of
Speaker Kelley in one Instance and
Chief Clerk Richmond In another to
Bign or attest bills.
Tho McKlssick bill, H. R. 245, pro
viding for a throe-fourths mill levy to
develop the university and the state
agricultural college, leaving the ques-
fiocatluu tTTTr-poptilaT -rote itrf
1913, was found to lack Richmond's
signature. It was the last bill to be
acted upon by tho legislature, ex
cept the general maintenance bill, and
in the final wind up of the session tho
chief clork overloked that detail.
This omission, Secretary of State
Walt thought, could be corrected even
after the bill had gone to the governor
and been signed by him and turned
over to the secretary of state's office.
Mr. Wait expected to see Richmond
during the day and have him write his
name on the certificate attached to the

Butt's Manual Holds
Attention of Spring
Fevered Soldier Boys
There has been a walling and gnash
ing of teeth among the cadets with
Bowman that Butt's Manual will be
tho order of the day for the rest of
the week. But the commandant is of
the opinion that the systematic exer
cises of Prof. Butt are an excellent
specific for spring fever, and more
over he has no very great respect for
the varying whims of a lowly cadet.
Each battalion has its turn at these
beneficial exercises and no man
escapes unless he skips drill and
thereby Inflicts upon himself a penalty
more serious than a wek of Butt's
manuals. The band accompanies each
battalion and the Bight of three com
panies of soldier boys moving with
trained precision and regularity is well

row as scheduled In yesterday's rag.
This morning's convocation In the
Temple program will be a musical one,
of unusual excellence. Marian Jones

Allegro motto moderato, Adagio, Al
