Scheme for Grading Those Who
Will Compete for the Cups in the'
Spring Meet.
In the article printed yesterday
on the University Senate prizes for
individual all-around excellence in
outdoor and indoor athletics, it was
stated that the outdoor prize would
be given for the best all-around
work in eight events on the an-
nual field day. On the contrary
all the events on the program
of the field day will count,
and the one making the mOst
points il these events will re-
ceive the Senate Trophy, a silver
cup. The marking will le five
points for first place in any event,
three for second place and one for
third place. It was at first intend-
ed to hold an all-around contest
aside from the field day and take
each contestant's marking in eight
events. This contest could not be
held before the Western Intercol-
legiate meet at Chicago, because it
would interfere with the training
for the latter. It would also be
impossible to hold it more than a
few days after the Chicago meet,
as some classes would by that time
be through with their University
work. The plan of having a spec-

The Senate Trophy for excel-
lence in indoor athletics will be
contested for at a special indoor
meeting to be held about a week
after the regular indoor athletic
meeting. The events chosen for
competition are: Fence vault,
high kick, rope climbing, tumbling,
work on horses, parallel bars. In
addition to the above contestants
will be marked on their physique,
i. e., their general development,
symmetry, proportion, etc. The
marking in the competition will be
five points for a first place, three
points for a second place and one
point for a third place. In mark-
ing for general development or
physique, first place will count ten
points, second place six points and
third place two points. Special
importance is thus given to general
class work and general develop-

the various quiz sections were so
large that it was impossible for
each student to receive attention

old members of the classes be
