Dr. Harper gave them a short talk, em­ phasizing the broadening influence of the study of the Bible and theol­ ogyas they are being taught today, after which the meeting resolved itself into a conference for asking and discussing any questions or problems that presented difficulties to the men who are looking forward to the work of the ministry. A loose organization was perfected with Eugene Neubauer as chairman. A room will probablybe secured for club purposes. and an effort will be made to bring the members into close touch with the University preachers. Those present were: A. R. Vail, C. B. Elliott. H. C. Brubaker. John Smale, E. B. Killnps, R. W. Merrifield. T. J. Hair, W. N. Garlick, E. J. Bentall, George Cleaver. S. V. Williams. Eugene Neubauer. The men, who in many instances are the most prominent in the Sen­ ior Colleges, represent six denomi­ nations. Dr. Hyde's lectve yesterday af­ ternoon in Kent Theater caused a general commotion throughout the student body, especially when he brought before them a living leper stripped to the waist. The horror aud surprise of the students was manifested by the whispering and creeping among the audience. The theater was crowded with Uni­ versity students as well as with Med­ ical men. The dreaded disease was illustrated by life-size pictures taken in the Sandwich and Philippine Isl­ ands, which showed in detail the so­ called incurable disease. The surprise of the students was brought to a climax when Professor Hyde put his hands on the Austral­ ian subject in demonstrating his point, the general belief being that contact meant sure death. From this time on the audience was held spellbound by the most in- A PARENTS' ASSOCIATION AIDS WORK teresting lecture.

SEN lOR C LAS S - BOO K S M 0 N DAY Delay in Printing of Songs Causes Post­ ponement of Weekly Class-Sing. The books containing songs and the constitution of the Senior class and' other matters relative to the class will be ready for distribution on Monday. They could not be printed at an earlier date. The delay neces­ sitated the postponement of the weekly sing, the success of which more or less depended upon the pos­ session by the students of the books. The committee on class-gift will �ot report until next quarter. Mean­ time suggestions are being solicited. :\Ir. Clifton Durant Howe, who has been lecturing on Forestry in Vermont during last month, has returned to the University. Military Company Appoints O1Iicera The following men were appointed yesterday by Colonel Brinkerhoff as non-commissioned officers of the military company: Frank B. Hutchinson. First Sergeant. Harold C. Brubaker. Second Sergeant. Fred E. Jo'leet, Corporal. Edward Earle Butler. Corporal. Carl E. Leaf, Corporal. The company now numbers forty men on its roster. On account of a lack of advertis­ ing patronage The Daily N�brllskan, the student publication at the Uni­ versity of Nebraska, has been sus­ pended temporarily. Though the estimated university patronage in Lincoln is S765,000, the paper was unable to receive the necessary S2,000 worth of support annually from the business men of that city. Stagg's Six .en Compete at Games in CiDciDDati-"Dopists" Concede Places but Bard Fights for Chicago If all the men entered in the A. A. U. track meet at Cincinnati tonight are ready to take their marks when the starter raises the gun, the events will be closely contested. Besides the athletes from the Uni­ versity, with whom Mr. Stagg left for Ohio last night, the First Regi­ merit, Central Y. M. C. A., and Hyde Park, numerous entries have also been received from Earlham College, the universities of Cincinnati and Purdue, the Cincinnati Y. M. C. A., and other of the western athletic as­ sociations. Little is known of the ability of the contestants outside of local stars. The "dopists" about the campus figure events in which our own men are entered, somewhat like this: The 60-yd. dash should go to Blair without much difficulty, a fact that would leave Senn, Friend, Eckersall, and Smith of the Rcgi­ ment to fight it out for second and third. Senn might pull out second, but both Eckersall and Smith are very strong and may beat him out for the place. Herbert, running for the First Regiment, ought to win the hurdles, but Friend has been showing rare form and speed of late and may fur­ nish a surprise by winning. Kirby for the Regiment is not a dangerous bidder for first honors. Magee has been having some trouble with his vaulting during the last few days and in all probability will not win out. In this case Mar- " tin. qt._the . ...R.egimenL.s}1ould ._wi.Il-. Booth of the Central Y. M. C. A. is also a good man in this even t. Henry, of Chicago, has a hard field to meet in the mile run. The Y. M. C. A. has entered a trio of fine run­ ners, Haigh, Buechler, and Marshall Browne, and it looks as if victory should come to one of these. Only the other day Browne went the dis­ tance in 4:48 on the Y. M. C. A. track, which is twenty-one laps to the mile. Speik is our only entry in the shot­ put. Against him are Kirby and Webster, both of the Regiment team. The contest between these should prove very interesting and close. The team will not return till Satur­ day, but Mr. Stagg is coming back earlier, and will be on hand in the Gymnasium on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning to hold try-outs for all desiring to make the team to compete at Milwaukee a week from Saturday. LOWER JUNIOR SEMI-FINALS HELD J. L. LewiDsohD and P. A. Walker Suc­ cessful Contestants-8cholarahip for A. V. Hopkins In the semi-finals of the Junior College declamation contest yester­ day afternoon in Kent, Joseph L. Lewinsohn and Paul A. Walker were selected from the Lower Juniors to compete in the finals for the Peck prize. Walker has received a scholar­ ship in a previous contest; his scholarship, therefore, passes on to the alternate, A. V. Hopkins. The semi-finals for the Upper Juniors take place in Kent at 4 o'clock this afternoon. President of Rush Medical Alumni Dead Dr. V. P. Kennedy, the Rush Medical College Alumni Association president, died at Litchfield, Minn., on the eighth of this month. Dr. Ken­ nedy was 79 years of age when he died. He was one of the best-known men in his state-Minnesota-and his death is widely mourned. The cause of death was Bright's disease. University Ken Interested in Kock National Convention Enthusias­ tically Booming Candidates Bryanites Elect Speakers-·Olney and Parker Men to Meet Soon-Con­ vention March 10 The political pot of the coming Democratic National Convention, to be held at the University on March 10, is beginning to boil furiously. Great interest is evinced by all the men in the University, and the vari­ ous factions for the convention are working industriously in support of their candidates. Evidence for this is found in the little knots of men gathered here and there about the campus, who spend their spare time in "button-holing" University fel­ lows for their particular party. The first factional meeting was held yesterday by the Bryan enthusi­ asts. The delegates met to elect a speaker to make the nominating speech at the convention. After some spirited balloting Walter L. Gregory, 'oS, was chosen. Eugene Kline was also elected to present the platform of the Bryan faction at the convention. Mr. Kline is a promi­ nent member of the Sophomore de­ bating club and has a reputation as a good speaker. The meeting, which was a spontaneous one, was well attended. The delegates repre­ sented many states and they were all enthusiastic over the outlook for their candidate. Speeches were l!l!d�.J?y _�.�- Jd�n..1r'�!.A'�' _$.,�i.!1b....�. - .-.A-_-- .... - � ... and Ralph Merriam, who will have charge of Mr. Bryan's campaign. The other men who are spoken ot as likely nominees for the nomina­ tion as presidential candidate of the Democratic party are Olney, Grover Cleveland, William R. Hearst, David B. Hill, and several others. The factions who are working for the many candidates are in the game to win. Political leaders amonz the . student body are organizing .... their forces for the final test on March 10. Central committees will be organ­ ized. Campaign celebrations will be arranged for, and University students will soon find themselves in the midst of a red-hot Democratic cam­ paign. The Bryan delegates will hold acau­ cus in a few days, at which meeting it is hoped that an expression may be read from Mr. Bryan. As yet he has not been apprised of the stand his constituents have taken; but there is little doubt but that he will accept the honor they are trying to thrust on him. The Olney faction seems to be in a strong position. Their man will have a good following from the mid­ dle western states and also from the East. He will not, however, have the southern support which the Bryan men will enlist in their ranks. Cleve­ land's chances look a little dark. Although his supporters are enthu­ siastic over their choice, it is thought by the big men of the party that the third term sentiment would defeat him. Hearst stands pretty well with the minority. He is probably the only dark horse now in the race. The strength of the Olney party is being augmented by a careful canvass among the state central committees and the chairmen of the state dele­ gations. The Bryan men are also active along this line and the next week will bring forth interesting developments in the great political fight. One very interesting feature about this convention is the fact that many (Continued on page 4, column 2) CHICAGO, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1903 API In any case I am in a position to make you a garment of remarkable finish and quality.

It gave a long list of "millionaires," several of whom are working their way through college. The sole object of the Clzro,ride was to throw mud. Tile editors wish to make the public believe that this University is a school for the sons of the rich only; wl1ile the facts are that Our student body is the most democratic in the country, that men of means and thOse without means are welcomed alike, and that each man goes in the cl9SS, room and in the student activi­ ties on his own merits. . At the track meet with ·Wisconsin �turday night an incident occurred � Bluer which should be frowned ·..,..,.O"Ge1r. on'-by"'�,eij CblUlgo 111an � as the height of unsports­ manlike conduct. When the thirty­ fi�e yard dash was being run off, one of the Wisconsin men, being unused to the backstop of mats which we b�ve stretched up across the south wall, accidentally fell. In falling he f�ll against Senn, one of our men. The force of the shock stunned Senn for the moment and he did not get up at once. When the crowd upon tpe track saw this an indiscreet few started to hiss. Upon hearing this, Mr. Stagg took occasion to announce to the crowd his sentiments in regard to such con­ duct, saying that anyone who is so rude: as to hiss a visiting team for any act whatsoever is no gentleman. This is the sentime�t of every Var- sity student, of course, but there are always outsiders who come in to see our meets who have not been so strongly impressed with this code of conduct which we regard so rigidly. I t is true they have our interests at heart, but their mode of expressing this loyalty is extremely distasteful. It will only be necessary for some of us in the crowd to discourage such actions promptly, and we shall soon be able to eliminate the last trace of this objectionable feature from our campus. Next to having a cham­ pionship team this is one of our most sensitive points; and Chicago. men al ways pride themselves on -fheir sportsmanlike conduct even after the last hope of championship is gone. No Chicago man should be so narrow-minded as to refuse to see good in the play of our oppo­ nents. Generous applause is always waiting for every man who does well. Let everyone of us unite to knock these knockers who give our rooters' sections such a bad appearance, and we will be able to boast that our conduct is always sportsmanlike. nws FROM THE UNIVERSITIES An interesting inter-fraternity bowling contest is being carried out at Minnesota. An Elizabethan play called "The Knight of the Burning Pestle" is to be produced by the English Club at Leland Stanford University. The first annual indoor track meet· between the freshmen of Purdue and Indiana resulted in a victory for the latter by a score of 42 to 22. The trustees of Cornell University have granted Professor J. W_ Jenks leave of absence for one month, in order that he might go to Mexico, whither he has been called by the government to consult with the authorities there regarding the estab­ lishment of a new monetary system.

At the Woman's Union yesterday after­ noon, Mrs. Paul Shorey talked on "The American School at Athens," and Miss Helen Ballou on "The American School at Rome." These addresses, given by women to women, about matters in which women are interested, were charming, witty. and full of grace; yet in intellectual content and vividness of des­ cription, contained all that could be put in them. Mrs. Shorey dwelt particularly on the social side of life in the school at Athens. No one who heard her will forget her vivid portrayal of the presentation to the queen of Greece and the grand court ball. Happily she remembered before closing that there are lectures-lectures in many languages on every phase of antiquities, which all the stu­ dents assidiously attend and enjoy. With a little peroration eloquent with the names of persons and places celebrated in Greek his­ tory and mythology, she closed. Miss Ballou opened her address with some witticisms calculated to bring her auditors . down from the blue sky, the sunshine, the mountains, and the sea. of Greece, away from the court ball of the queen, to the heart of a great city, where, buried away under epochs of civilization, in out-of-the­ way places, in great excavations and musty old libraries, the student must delve for the objects of his quest. Soon the audience was following an eager, thoroughgoing student over the ground of the school at Rome. The President, Miss Talbot, in her closing re­ marks announced that this would be the last meeting in the little church. By next Sat­ urday the Union will be moved to its new quarters in Room 15 in Lexington Hall. One hundred dollars, at least, will be expend­ ed, in adding to the furniture and furnish­ ings already belonging to the Union. The lunch room in Lexington Hall will be man­ aged by the Union, but will be open to all the women in the University. TRICKSTER VISITS UNIVERSITY A gentleman whose business is to go from college to college teach­ ing tricks of magic and otherwise, principally otherwise, has just visited the University and departed. Sev­ eral men have separated themselves from ten-dollar bills and are twelve "shell-games" the wiser. The gen­ tleman said his ten-dollar rate was a bargain, inasmuch as his regular rate to business men is fifty dollars. His scheme is to go to a fraternity house and.after a few preliminary tricks of legerdemain, he says: "Boys, I have a proposition for you." He then says that if a class of ten is formed, he will cut his fifty-dollar rate to ten dollars, and give his twelve shell-games at a great sacri­ fice. The men who accepted the' proposition are not saying much about it. The truth of the matter is that the men have most of them per­ formed their tricks in such a clumsy fashion that they have been immedi­ ately understood, and thus even those who kept their money know as much as those who are minus an " X." The sophomores at Illinois have elected two class presidents. The decision as to which shall rule the destinies of the class has been left to one of the deans.

The course in Operative Surgery under Professor Bouffleur will not be given the first term of the spring quarter, as was gen­ erally supposed. Those desiring the work commenced this week, and will complete it by the end of the present quarter, Warrell H. Hunter, Rush '96, and present county physician, recently sustained some rather severe bums about the face and hands as the result of an accident. While the . injuries. were, very p�inf ul aad. annoying .at , the time, no permanent disfigurement will result. J. D. Scouller, Ir., of the Senior class. com­ mences his interneship in the Presbyterian Hospital today. Mr. Scouller graduates this quarter. He has served on the different wards in the hospital for the past two years and hos shown great proficiency in handling the X-ray machine. A large percentage of the men registered for Professor Bevan's clinic are preparing theses which will take the place of the quar­ terly examinations. All students registered for this surgical clinic have their choice be­ tween a thesis on some surgical subject or a written examination on the entire subject­ matter of the quarter. A considerable amount of criticism has been current around the college the last few days regarding the general lack of interest that is shown by both Faculty and students in securing the services of able lecturers on medical subjects. Besides being immensely beneficialin the way of imparting valu­ able information to the students, such meetings might be so arranged that the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior classes could attend, and they would be a means of uniting more closely the Senior and Junior Colleges of Medicine. Such lec­ turers could be obtained to a very large de­ gree from our own Faculty. Last year, for instance, one very instructive talk was given by one of the Faculty on his recent travels in Japan. Only a few weeks ago two prom­ inent professors made an extended trip through the West Indies and various parts of South America, undoubtedly collecting during the. course .of this voyage .much y.alu-, able information regarding the medical con­ ditions in those lands. The n.en can read about these things after. they have Iimlduat­ ed, when it will be almost impossible for them to hear them ably discussed. Hence these valuable opportunities should be taken advantage of while the chance is still ours. I ' ATHLETIC NOTES "I Ernie Miller cleared I I feet yesterday in the pole-vault.

At least 150 names should be in. RIVAL FACTIONS BUSY (Continued from first page) of the most ardent Democratic sup­ porters are Republicans. Students who favor the candidacy .of Richard Olney of Massachusetts as Democratic candidate for presi­ dent of the United States met this morning in Cobb Lecture Room. The enthusiasm ran so high that another rally will be necessary before all the business can be transacted. At the meeting this morning Mr. Leo F. Wormser presided and pointed out the necessity of active campaigning. Plans were laid where­ by doubtful delegations may be won over. Tomorrow, at 10: 30, the Ol­ ney enthusiasts will meet again in Cobb Lecture Room, and all stu­ dents of the University are invited. At this meeting a speaker will be elected, who is to nominate Mr. Olney in the convention. Following upon the Bryan and Olney booms already launched, the candidacy of Judge Alton B. Parker of New York for the presidential nomination before the coming na­ tional convention is announced. A meeting has been called for him, as the "coming candidate," tomorrow at 10: 30 in Cobb Lecture Room. He is expected to have a large following in the South, as well as the East. David B. Hill is said to be engineer­ ing the movement. Yale's football captain elected for next year is left-end Rafferty.
