Back to the Grind?
Hardly! Students Glad
To Resume Old Tasks
The old RtudentB, hnrdoned in tlio
fires of many registration weeks, are
drifting in one by one. All seem
greatly elnted that another fall sees
them bark at the old Hchool. Old
friends are encountered here and
there and old memories are stirred up
once more. Hearty handclasps Indi
cate that school friendships are more
enduring that many suppose.
"Hello, Charley, old' man," says a
tall youth as he drops a heavy suit
case to greet a comrade, "how did
the aluminum business pan out?
nought out a bank yet?"
"Not quite, Jack. Raked in a few
old ducat? though. Was that clumtau-
qua job a success?"
"Successful for them. I guess. I
spent, about all I made on sandwiches
between meals. The hotels in those
little burgs starve a guy to death. Say,
do you start law this year?"
The boarding houses and fraterni
ties show signs of life and the down
town stores by attractive window dis
plays prepare to welcome the return
ing students. Everywhere are the in
dications that the influx of student
population has begun. The old Uni
versity has awakened from its three
months' sleep and the grind of the
educational mill is resumed.

track man, now teaching in Hroken

Wisconsin in Trouble. .
Seventy men, fourteen of whom bear
the varsity "W," are quite certain to
report to Coach Juneau on Septem
ber 20, bo the selection of the team
is not worrying the fans in the least.
Practically all of last year's line will
be back, but a new back field will
have to be formed from last year's
reserves. These, however, are all play
ers of ability; consequently the Car
dinals expect a repetition of last year's
Armory's Interior Burnished.
Workmen have been going over the
walls of the Armory, plastering the
rough spots and renewing the appear
ances of the hall in time for the crowds
registering today. A second tier of
dressing rooms has been built above
the balcony over the. Commandant's
office, to be used by the company ser
geants. The officers' dressing room is
left as it was last year.
