Foot-Ball Mass Meeting. N .
. Tho mass meeting that was held in chapel last Friday morn
ing was very enthusiastic. Since no one "was nominated
for chairman of the meeting, tho Chancellor acted in that
capacity. He spoke briefly concerning foot ball and urged
all to turn out and support the management. He then
introduced Prof. H. W. Caldwell who spoke wittily concern
ing tho reasons why ho had been invited to speak. Miss Bertha
Stull next took tho floor and made a very strong appeal to the
young ladies to turn out and cheer tho boys to victory. She
thought that a good deal that ia bad in foot-ball would be
obviated if the girls would attend the games and show marked
disapproval of any rowdyism. G. E. Hager followed with a
detailed account of his evolution as a foot-ball enthusiast from
second prep to Senior. He spoke in a very humorous manner
and received considerable applause. Dr. Roscoe Pound ap
pealed to everyone to be patriotic enough to come out to the
games. He said that ho wanted to see a good big crowd :along
the side linos to cheer the University boys on to victory. Dr.
"Ward gave a humorous account of his first game of foot-ball
and told how he plowed a furrow in the ground with his left
oar when he was first tackled. The Chancellor turned this
story to good account by saying that no one would now blame
1r. Ward for getting on his oar occasionally. The mooting
adjourned after giving tho yell.

Saturday night the Palladian club debated tho proposition as
to the advisability of establishing a protectorate over the
Philippines. The boys bad a social after the debate. Apples
and peaches were served, and there were plenty to spare,
since some of tho boys tossed part of the fruit out of the
window to some fair maidens who were below, A couple of
the members of the club disappeared at the same time, and it
is probable that they helped the girls devour the edibles which
came from above.
The Palladian program of last Friday evening was the first
of a series which has been planned for the term. The series
briefly covers the popular authors of the day in America, pub
lic speakers from the pulpit and stage, recent political meas
ures and their movers, and those in advance in the scientific
world. Last Friday evening the subject was Robert Louis
Stevenson and Hall Caino. Brief sketches of the lives of
those men wore planned glimpses of their inner lives. Ex
tracts from their writings, with criticisms bearing directly on
the style of those extracts followed. In order to prevent
mechanical work, and to preserve the individuality whicli so
strongly marks the work of tho University societies it is the
plan to sot aside one evening each month for a class, beginning
with the Seniors tins Friday evening, the Juniors following
next month, .and so on. The 'classes will present whatever
