meet of tho year. The team arrived
at Kansas City last night and, ufter
spending the night thore, continued
oif to Lawrence early this morning.
The team is in fair condition, and
tho prospects for taking tho meot aro
not overly bright. Tho loss of Goetze,
who is a stqllar porformor in tho two
mile run, will bo keenly felt. While
playing baseball last Tuesday, Gqeue
was so badly injured that bo will bo
unable tq accompany the team. His
placo will bo taken by Charlie Ander
son. On the whole tho team Is a mugh
better one than tho team of last yoir

Confident Election Entirely
And' still secrecy reigns. Who Is
the Queen of tho May is the question
that Is bothering all seniors especi
ally, tho fair ones. But nobody out
side of the "Inner circle" has the
slightest Idea just who It is. Some
say It is certainly Mildred Scoflold.
Others are sure It is Bess Rogers.
Gladys Bunt, according to many, has
already accepted. Elizabeth Scott
just can't help but be elected, and Is
without doubt the girl for tho crown.
,so now you know just who It Is.
Aren't you glad sho was selected?
vWoh't she look sweet and pretty with
the crown of foses over hor fair brow?
Anyway, the girls say the election
was alL ''on the square" and that the
right girl has been elected.
