Tho past week has seen a noticeable
chango in tho appearance of tho foot
ball field. A largo scrapor has been
engaged and has been rapidly taking
off tho humps on tho field. Not only
tho Irregular places, but tho whole
field will bo scraped bo that It will
present an almost level aurface. Tho
north end of the field will be about
two feet lower than tho other end.
This will work no hardship In playing
as the Incline will bo Imperceptible.
On the other hand, It will bo of great
advantage In draining off the ground.
In addition to scraping the field, a
track one-fifth of n mllo long has been
laid out. This will bo used for the
first time In the coming freshman
cophomoro field day contest. If there
Is room enough, however, the present
track will be chnnged to ono-quartcr
of a mllo In length. Professor Hast
ings Is at present figuring on such a
chango and will make It If possible.
The Society of Electrical Engineers
met last Saturday night In Professor
Owens' lecture room. Work for the
college year was talked over. Stops
were taken to bccure a room In the
new building for tho use of the so
ciety. A committee was appointed to

bo no regular electrical exhibition
given this year
It takes so much i
time and labor, it was thought best i
to wnit until the electrical depart- ! "ny cases, fnlsc types of character
