It. Ogden. Mrs. S. II. Ilurnham, Mrs.
Dr. Hal ley, Mrs. William M. Clark,
Mrs. William W. Hastings.
The date of the Contest has been
advanced from April 1(5 to April :t() on
account of the rumored failure of the
enterprise ami to allow more time for
practice. It will take place on the af
ternoon of that day from I! to 0 o'clock.
The proceeds were originally to be
contriouted to the cinder track, but
on the plea of the basket-ball girls,
which seemed a perfectly just one,
the managers have agreed to divert 25
per cent, of the proceeds to the girls'
basket ball fund. The rest will go to
the track fund. From the activity
shown by all interested, there is no
doubt that this sum will be a good one.
The list of patronesses also makes the
success of the affair in a social way be
