races. This Is tho last of tho Gym
nasium work for tho year. About one
hundred and twenty girls will take
part in this moot.
Over fifty girls havo registered for
tho 50 and 25 yard dashes. Competi
tion is very keen. A few havo signed
up for tho 8-pound shotput, and a
number for tho running high jump,
low hurdles, tho basketball and base
ball throws.
The basoball gamo between tho
sophomores and tho freshmen will bo
tho feature of tho afternoon's meet.
The teams are very closely matched,
one side possessing a catcher of re
nown and tho other a pitcher who can
throw fancy "colves."
Tho shortstops on both sides are
particularly speedy, and tho first base
man of tho sophomores Is a rival of
some of tho league players. Tho
freshmen havo a phenomenal batter,
who has a record of dozens of "over

It will be pleasing to the men to

MEDIC CONVOCATION
YESTERDAY MORNING
Dr. William Mllroy Spoke on the Pro
fession of Medicine of Today
Great 8trldes.
Dr. William Milroy of Omaha gavo
tho annual medical address at convo
cation yesterday morning. Ho spoke
of the influence of tho physician in
the community and value of medical
work in social reform.
Tho great strides that havo been
made In medicine in recent years is
due largely to the scientlflo doctor.
Tho old-time doctor experimented on
patients; the doctor of today confines
his oxporiments to the laboratory.
The medical profession never de
creases in Importance and there is al
ways a demand for tho efficient physi
cian, The disagreeable features that
are often met with serve to strengthen
the character for crucial situations.
