last evening at 7 p. in. for the purpose
of electing a captain.
The meeting was called to order by
Manager Baird, aind Henry M. Senter,
commonly known as "Mort," was
unanimously elected captain. In a
short speech lie told the team how he
started out to play football without
any idea of even making the team,
much less being elected captain.
Ex-Captain Henninger was then
called upon for a speech, in which he
thanked the members of the team for
their hearty support during the past
season. He was followed by Manager
Baird, who said thalt lie had a surprise
of being by far the best end the West
had yet produced, and his record this
year is too fresh in the memories of us
all to need repetition.
BASEBALL AT CHICAGO:
They Mean Business-The. Plans
The University of Chicago is already
booming baseball, practice in the win-
ier quarters will begin inl a short. tinie.
Bulletins calling out all candidntes for
the teams have already been losted.
An innovation in selecting players is
to be introduced by the managenent
this year. Practice will be conducted
in two sections. All those who apply
for admission to these sections will be
given a test. Those who show a
knowledge of the game or good possi-
bilities will be allowed to enter for
practice and all others will be drop-
ped. It is hoped by this plan to ob-
viate work with a lot of useless mater-
ial. Practice will be given as usual
in store for the nien, that today he had in picking ip grounders, running and
received a telegram from Leland Stan- sliding bases, etc. In addition to this,

doubtedly be taken, as all the team ex-
pressed themselves as willing to go.

ALL IS READY FOR IT-THE LAST
At the Webster Society Last Night
- The Successful Contestants -
Who Will Battle for Farther
The last of the preliminaries for the
Chicago debate 'sas held last night by
the Jeffersonian Society, and resited
in the choosing of Air. Ewing and Mr.
Block as that society's representatives
in the inter- society debate. The do.
bate was equal to the other society
contests and the two men chosen are
strong and experienced debaters, Mr.
Block having been on the inter-society
debate last year. The judges were
Professors Mechem, Bogle and IAughes
ata in this as in other contests in
which these professors of the law fac-
ulty have acted as judges their rank-
ings have agreed with each other al-
most to the last man.
Now that all the preliminaries are
over it is of interest to note who will
participate in the inter-society debate.
As all the societies have debated the
same question, the graduated property
tax, the side that the winners had
inay also be noted. The first contest,
held by the Alpha Nn Society, resulted
in the choosing of Mr. H1. Geismier and
air. Carmody, one on eai side of the
question; then the Adephi next in or-
der seleoted Mr. Lathers of the afirm-
ative side and Mr. tlirrison of the
negative. The successful men in the
Webster preliminary were Air. Vert
and Air. Allbright, both of the nega-
tive side. In the contest last iight the
winnters were on opposite sides of the
The inter-society debate will be the
next step in our preparaition for the
contest with Chicago. The date of
this has not been deinitely fixed, but
it will undoubtedly be held before the
Christmas holidays. By holding it
thus early, the Lsuccessful debaters
will le given more time to prepare for
the final debate.
.'he prospects for a close stiruggle
among the societies at the inter-society
contest have never been better. Under
the plan by which representatives are
chosen at present, each society selects
its best men and those chosen go in
with a determination to win. A glance
at the list of successful contestants
above will bear out this stiatement.
The Oratorical Society has offered to
give $50 for prizes to those who are
successful in the inter-society contest
if the societies will relinquishi control
of the debate and the societies now
have the matter under consideration.
