The annual election of officers for the
Athletic association was hold in the chapel
Saturday, September 30. For a week pre
vious the halls had been alive with students
talking over th matter, and by Saturday
the excitement was intense. The chief fight
was over the election of the board of five
directors whose duty it is to have general
oversight of all athletics and to choose the
officers of the foot-ball team. As the presi
dent of the board of directors is also presi
dent of the association, the test of the
strength of the two factions come in his elec
tion. The two nominees for president were
Ernest Houghton and E. A'. Gerrard. RolJ
call resulted in 71 votes for Houghton and
96 votes for Gerrard. Mr. Gerrard immedi
ately took the chair in accordance with the
usual custom, amid vociferous cheering.
The election of the four remaining members
of the board wa's then proceeded with. The
nominees were Messrs. Cooley, Dixon,
"Weeks, Searson, Lyon, Flippin and Heald.
After some delay in the roll call resulting
from the frequent challenging of votes,
Messrs. Searson, Lyon, Flippin and Heald
were declared elected. Tho following officers
were then elected in quick succession: Vice
president, R. L. Cheney; secretary, H. L.
Ricketts; treasurer, Mr. Kimball.
The contest was essentially the same as
that fought last year, which resulted in the
election of H. G. Whitraore as manager of
the foot-ball team. The same ground was
covered and the same general result attained.
Such contests are extremely beneficial to
athletic interests at least in a financial way.
The fight was all open and above board,
neither side being guilty of trickery.

One hundred and twenty-five students
attended Prof. Sherman's Bible class at its
first meeting. These popular Sunday after
noon Bible talks take the place of the short
courses of Saturday lectures given last year
by different members of the faculty. To
say that Prof. Sherman is in charge of the
class is sufficient to assure attendance; for it
is doubtful if any other member of the fac
ulty can so well instruct and elevate his
hearers. Prominent among the subjects
that will be treated are Science aud Religion
in their new relation; Miracles in the Light
of the Identity of Natural and Spiritual
Force; Influence of the TJtterences and Life
of Christ upon the Secular World; New
Aspects of the Ethics of Christ. The Hass
meets on Sundays at 3 p. m. in the chapel.
