"Ambling back toward the river,
after bamboozling another policeman,
the association took a jaunt down wlrat
is to be the Street of Nations of tho ex
position, the line of twenty-two foreign
pavilions. Here everybody proceeded
to fall down not literally, but figura
tively in trying to tell from the Hags
the nationalities of the buildings.
"When a workman on the Hungarian
building declared that he did not know
to what country the opposite building
belonged, after working there six
months, there was a splendid oppor
tunity for the president to remark that
he was dumber than a freshman stu
dent in French, but she refrained.
Judge, oh ye former students of said
president, what a mollifying influence
the neighborhood of altar decoration
stores has had.
"It will bo observed that these min
utes diverge in several particulars from
the regular variety, but owing to the
great tendency of all the members to
drop business for more entertaining
discussions, the secretary has worked
"At the United States pavilion there
was a suggestion that the association
hurrah for McKinley, but the member
from '05 said she was living with
Bryan people now and was afraid that
if she yelled for McKinley she might
get in the habit of it and do it in her
sleep and either hurt the feelings of
the Bryanites or get severely rebuked.
So the yell was laid on the table, or
rather on a i5ile of ignifuged lumber,
no table being handy.
"Really, although the association
continued its session all up through
the Trocadero gardens, invaded tne
Transvaal, that is, the Boer farm
house, in quite Anglo-Saxon style,
walked another half mile, and rode on '
a tram half an hour, the secretary is at
a Iohh to find any scholastic, literary,
scientific or post graduate matter in all
tho wild words strewn along the route.
The association broke up, still with
out any legal or formal action, between
the Sorbonne and the Cluny museum,
the member for '95 climbing up towards
heaven at II Rue de Cluny, the secre
tary and vice president trudging up the
classic Montague Ste., Genevieve tow

tho president retiring to the prayer
beads and holy objects that surround

by the alumna; members, will be prop

kicked often and his team was success
ful in securing the ball. In the second
half the freshmen bracked up a little,
but were unable to advance on the soph
omores or to hold the team, though
they prevented them from making more
than two touchdowns. Neilson, Yant,
Bullard, Hooper and Lucky were each
credited with a touchdown, Voss kick
ing ever goal. Twenty minute halves
were played. The crowd was small and
exhibited little college or class spirit.

The sophomore-freshman foot ball
game was played on the campus Tues
day afternoon and resulted In a vic
tory for the sophomores, the score
being 30 to 0. Since the game the week
before the $ophomoreB picked up some
more men, and also played with more
nnap and energy than before, entiiely
outclassing their opponents. The
freshmen played a slow game and seem
ed to lack spirit and at no time did they
stand any show of scoring. The fame
abounded in long runs, Yant making a
phenomenal run of seventy-five yards
for a touchdown on a furnb'e by Ue
freshmen. Neilson played a strong
game, making a number of long runs
around the end and bucking the Jlnc
for large gains. Hooper and Lucky
also made good gains, the latter slop
ping many of the freshmen. Hooper
