THE LITERARY SOCIETIES.
What the Different Ones Are
Doing This Year.
Greater intereots i being taken in
the literary societies this year than foo
many yearsast. It Is evidenced by
the large number of debaters who en-
tered the preliminaries for the Citgo
debate and by the increased attend-
ance at the meetings of the societies.
The 'Webster Society has a member-
ship this year of 14, which to the
largest in the history of the society.
At every meeting the society hali is
well filled and excellent programs are
given. This year two of the three
representatives of the law departet t
on the final University debate ar",
members of this society. The society
will hold its annual banquet next Fri-
day night at Prettymans.
The Jeffersonian Society has also an
increased attendance this year. At
the business ,meeting Saturday night
the following oficers were elected for
the next term: President. A. J. Lacy;
vice president, W. J. Wetherbee;i-
cording secretary, L. C. Tuck; corres-
pcnding secretary, W. S. Gilbert;
treasurer, H. J. Cortrite; eritic, J. E.
Bailey; marshal, L. P. Cramon.
Saturday night the Alpha Nu So-
ciety presented a ladies progratnml
had as its guests the Philologia So-
ciety and the Adelihi. The followig
was the program given: Whisttm

Miss Edna Bevans; niusic. Miss Clark;
reading, .Miss Nash; vocal solo, Miss

say, MIss Quinby. After the literary
program a pleasant social was heid.
Tise oteimberohip of the Alpha Nu So-
ciety is limited to forty, and it now
has this number of aetire members.
Te Philolo it, organized just re-
cently by the ladies, liremises to
arouse the interest of the college girls
tn literary society work. Two meet-
tngs- have been held.
The other literary societies of the
University are the Adelphi Lincohlm
Sunmer and Hamiltonian.
It is thought that in a few weeks
there will be a new debating society
it the literary department. Plans are
now on foot for its organization and
those who have the matter ino charge
report that the first meeting wll prob-
ably be held during the first week of
the new semeter It will be organ-
tIed along lines somewhat different
from the other literary societies as it
'will be devoted entirely to debating.
It is said that no attempt will be made
to antagonize in any way the interests
of the other societies, but the member-
ship will be nade up ainos entirely
of those who are not members of any

Athletic Trophy Room.
It is almost!lit assured fact
that the Athletic A-sociation will
have a trophy room. Both the di-
rectors of the asocialtion mand the sen-
ior class are endeavoring to make the
suggestion a reality. At a recent meer
tng of the Uegents permission was
given to use one of the rooms of tte
gymnasium that was not needed for
the gynnasiun work. The fencing
room was thought of Ibut Dr. Fitzger-
ald 'held that though the room was
not used very largely at present it
woul likely be beores long. It is
probtble tiat the smil recethlion 'oor
which opens off from the main hal of
the gymnasium wiii be secured. In
order to place this room in sshape it
will be necessary to close lthe arch
with !folding doors. A peition has
been laid -before the Regents to allow
the association to do this. The pe-
tition will be acted upon at the next
meeting, meanvwile attempts are be
ing (made to secure all the trophies
possible to decorate the room. There
are many valuable ones scattered
around in different parts of the
country and an endeavor will be made
to find out where they are and if possi-
ble obtain them.
"Jimmy" and "Oharley" Baird have
several which will 'be contributed.
Isadore :111, Ward Hughes, Jack At-
kinson and other managers of past
teamis have many whicht can be s-
cured. W. W. Grilitn has the pictures
of the 'Varsity teams for several years
back and it is thought that these can

Dr. H. H. Everett, of Ilmiois, and
A. 'A. Stagg, of the University of Obi-
cago, were closeted together the great-
er part of Saturday. The two'were
putting into form the conilusions they
iave arrived at since they were made
tihe committee of the western colleges
to propose changes in the footbal
rules. ;Both men have been working
on -the rules since they started the re-
vision, two weeks ago, but this is the
first time since then that they have
beema able to get together and Ceom-
pare views. Dr. Everett will stay in
Chicago until tonight, and will specid
the most of his time with the director
of athletics of the Oieago senool.
Both men promise that the rules will
be ready for the public tomorrow.
A meeting of the Democrats of the
University was called for Saturday at
11 o'lock to effect an organization.
