JEFFRSONIAN SOCIETY WON.

The Jeffersonian team was victorious
in the debate with Alpha Nu last night.
The question discussed was "Resolved,
That a system of referendum be adopt-
ed in state and municipal legislation."
The Jeffersonian had the affirmative

judges, while the Alpha Nu team was
given 494 points, the former thus win-

Tennis Tournament Preliminaries.
The opening rounds of the annual
spring tennis toturnament was held
yesterday afternoon. The number of
entrties increased considerably at the
last minute, though it is still belosw what
was hoped for. It was thought by some
that interest in tennis had died out
somewhat this year and that the spring
meet would not be up to the ene last
year. However, the play yesterday was
lively and for the most part sharply

of the debating season, the work of both arrangements already made for tri-
teams was excellent. It showed care-
ful preparation, a considerable mastery
of the subject and a fair amount of
force in delivery.
This victory makes the Jeffersonian
Society ahead in the inter-society con-
tests, as it defeated the Adelphi last
year and has defeated the Webster and
Alpha Nu this year. The members of
the Jeffersonian team were Lacy, Gil-
bert and Dannenburg. Those who rep-
resented Alpha Nu were Wistrand, Rey-
nolds and Miss Quinby. The judges
were Messrs. Gray and Butterfield. The
attendance was unfortunately small.
The Philologia gave a'reception and
entertainment last night to the Adeiphi
and Alpha Nu societies. The question
-was first discussed, "Resolved, That
students of this University can serve
their country better by attending to
their studies than by enlisting in the
army." After a warm discussion the
three societies went into a committee
of the whole to consider some ques-
tions of parliamentary law. A reception
and social followed the literary program
which was heartily enjoyed by all pres-

'Varsity vs. Northwestern.
'Varsity plays Northwestern this af-
ternoon. A great deal more hangs on
this game than was at first anticipated.
Last Saturday Northwestern beat Ill-

can in order to make the victory
Slaughter will pitch for Northwestern.
Miller will be in the box for 'Varsity
with the regular line-up supporting

afternoon at Regents Field.

the Dents made three runs which made
the score stand 10 to 9 in their favor.
In the first half of the ninth, with'two

error gave '99 two runs and the game,

work of both pitchers and the catch-

poorly supported. Final score, 11 to 10.
