eral of their best players to Island Lake
the team has been greatly weakened.

Tewksbury Receives Praise.
The Pennsylvanian has the following
to say in regard to the relay races of
The results of Saturday's races have
given great encouragement to the track
men, as some of the performances were
as remarkable as they were unexpected.
The work of Tewksbury was by far the
best he has ever done, and deserves
notice, since he has been sick during
the greater part of the winter. In Feb-
ruary at the Boston Athletic association
gs mes, in the relay race with Harvard,
he ran the 390 yards in a fraction over
forty-three seconds. His rare against

Senior Class to Decide Upon a
The senior class will hold a very im-
portant meeting this afternoon in Room
C at 4:15. The most important matter
to come before the meeting is the de-
termination of a class tax. Chairman
Bennett of the Arrangements Commit-
tee will make hs report as to the ex-
pected cost of the senior reception and
the other commencement arrangements.
Chairman Hyde of the Invitation Com-
mittee will also report on the class day
invitations and programs. These re-
ports will afford a basis for determin-
ing the class tax.
The class will also decide whether or
not they will support the senior recep-
tion by an appropriation from the class
fund or not. If such is their decision
tickets will be sold to seniors at a lower
rate than to members of other classes.
A date will be settled upon for the
annual Cap and Gown Swing-Out. The
caps and gowns have not yet arrived
but are expected the first part of next
week. The seniors desire to have their
swing-out some time before the May
Festival, and will probably decide upon
Tuesday, May 10 provided the caps and
gowns are here by that time.
President Simons has requested the
Gaily-to announce that a full meeting
of seniors is desired this afternoon, as
there are several very important mat-
ters to come before the class.

the U. S. converted cruiser Prairie, the
deep sea patrol boat for the New Eng-
land coast. Fourteen students have
volunteered for the 1st U. S. Cavalry,
