The Senate of the Literary De-
partment will meet for the first time
this semester Saturday morning, at
9 o'clock, in the south wing of Uni-
versity Hall. Most of the members
of this society have returned to col-
lege and the prospects for a success-
ful year are bright.
Although the society was organized
only last April, it has held many in-
teresting debates upon national sub-
jects. Parlimentary law was also
given considerable attention in all its
meetings to the instruction of all the
members. The debates take the
form of discussions upon bills intro-
duced by different members, each
representing a certaim state. At
most of the meetings last year, the
question as to intervention in the
affairs of Cuba was discussed and
plans for the organization of our
military forces considered. It is pro-
posed to consider present national
problems this semester.
The menbership is limited to the
number of states and territories in
the Union, but at present there are
several vacancies, which will be filled
as soon as possible. Every one wish-
ing to jolt the society is requested to
attend the meeting Saturday morn-
