Declare Former Election Illegal
and Elect Officers.
The Lits yesterday took oratorical
matters into their hands and made
good their threat of protesting the
election. According to the constitu-
tion a meeting of the association may
be called at any time upon written
request of two members from each
of the classes represented on the
board. This request was made and
accordingly the meeting was legal
In the absence of the recently
elected officers J. A. Evans, '00, was
made temporary chairman and A. K.
Wistrand, '99, temporary secretary.
Te smeetitgswas attetded almtot
entirely by lits, about 100 being
present. Evidence of illegality was
presented by several members. It
was stated that only 480 were pres-
ent at the former meeting and thatt
526 votes were cast. It was also
claimed that a number of law stu-
dents had declared that they had
cast three and five votes each.
As a result of the evidence sub-
mitted it was unanimously voted to
declare the last election illegal and
that it be rescinded.
It was then unanimously decided
to nominate the men named at the
regular election. Accordingly the
law candidates were named with
those of the lits.
After a long controversy a motion
was carried that the association,
there regularly assembled, request
President Angell, Dean Hutchins,
and Profs. Mechem, Trueblood and
McLaughlin to act as a committee to
decide the contested election. One
mnember pointed out the folly of the
ceurse the assembly was pursung,
but found little sympathy with his
views. After a long discussion as to
the method of election a plan was
finally devised by which a check was
put on any possibility of ballot-
stuffing, and the tellers wereinstruct-
ed to keep the ballots for future ref-
erence and to sign the election state-
ment. It was voted to put on the
records in full the evidence submit-
ted and the resolutions and votes
passed. Having thus fortified the
meeting with all legal requirements
a vote was taken which resulted
unanimously for the lit ticket.
After the election the successful
candidates were duly sworn in and
as a result the Oratorical Association
has two boards. The regular officers
are in possession of all papers etc.,
but were declared illegally elected.
The lit board claims legal electiona
and intends to make a fight for the
offices. The contesting officers are

Lecture on Military Surgery.
The first of the series of lectures
on military surgery was given by Dr.
Chas. B. Nancrede to the medical
students last evening, in the lower
lecture room of the Medical build-
The lecture was diagramatic in
character, showing the weight, veloc-.
ity and range of the different halls-.
His remarks were based upon his ex-
perience in the late war with Spain,
lie having had charge at one time of
all the wounded and sick of the
American forces upon the island of
He gave a description of the dif-
ferent kinds of wounds caused by
the various balls, and showed very
coticlutsively that the effect f 5 hall
was determined by its velocity at the
time it struck and not by the veloc-
ity with which it left the gun. The
principle resistence with which it
meets is the air, and different wounds
are made just as the ball strikes di-
rect, slantingly, or sideways.
By the modern rifle ball when
bone has not been struck the devital-
izing of tissue is very small and it a
great many cases the first dressing
has not been removed until the
wound was healed. At one time he
saw two men sitting smoking, each
having a Mauser ball imbedded in
The non-explosive ball involves
little loss to tissue and destruction to
bone, many cases being brought to
the operating table with a wound
clear through a leg or arsi bone and
the bone not shattered.
To Lecture on Draft.
At last defiite arrangements have
been made by which students it the
Engieering Department, and all
others who are interested, will be
given the opportumity to hear Mr.
Walter B. Snow lecture on "The In.
fluence of Mechamical Draft upon
the Ultimate Efficiency of Steami
Boilers.' The lecture is illustrated
by about 50 lantern slides and is one
which has been well received at the
eastern schools of technology. Quite
recently Mr. Snow spoke before the
students of Cornell University- and
contemplates delivering the same
lecture at Wisconsin on the night be-
fore he comes here.
His lecture treats largely of the
different types of apparatus for pro.
ducimg draft and the methods of ap
phication. These will be illustrated
and described by a thoroughly com-
petent man. The subject is one of
such vital importance to the engineer
and of interest to the general public
that a large crowd may well be looked
for. The address will be given under
the auspices of the Engineering
Society on Saturday evening, April
This year is the first for a long
time that all the 'Varsity football
men are in one picture. See the
picture on the "Victors" march at
'Varsity vs. Toledo League,
this afternoon at 4:10 o'clock at
Fair Grounds. Last hose game
before the spring trip ! Adnsis-
sion 15 cents.
Toledo Tahes the Third Game From
Heavy hitting by Toledo and
ragged work by the 'Varsity tells the
story. The feature of the game was
a long running catch of a line hit by
Davies. Flesher batted well making
a single and a two bagger. Toledo
played much better ball than in the
previous ganes. Taking this into con-
sideration the game tomorrow ought
to be a good one as the 'Varsity will
make every effort possible to capture
the fourth and last. Everybody
ought to come out and get a line on
the men before the spring trip.
''here was hardly a corporals guard
at yesterday's game which goes a
long way in explaining the score.
