routine will be disposed of. Coach
Stiehm will bring before the board his
recommendation that an lnter-depart-ment
baseball league be formed. Mr.
Stiehm will submit articles and will
suggest the calling of caucuses to
choose delegates to a meeting for tho-
forming of rules aim regulations.

teams, Freshman Laws, Junior and
Senior Laws, Civil and Electrical En
gineering, Mechanical Engineering
and Foresters, School of Commerce,
School of Agriculture, Arts and
Sclonco Freshmen, throo senior
classes In Arts and Science College.
The plan as putllned is to bar no
