The Mathematical Club.
At the last meeting of the Mathe-
matical Club, Dr. Markley presented
a very interesting paper on Sir Wil-
liam Hamilton's method of differen-
tiation. After this followed a business
meeting, the officers of the club
being elected for the first semester.
Mr. James W. Glover was chosen
president ; Mr. Man Warren, secre-
tary and treasurer. The election of
vice president was deferred until a
later meeting.
The next meeting will be held in
Room 17, on Saturday evening.
Mr. Mann will read a paper on"The
Life and Works of Euclid" and Mr.
Maul will discuss the properties of a
certain logarithmic curve.
During the present year the club
intends to present papers on the
lives and works of the greater math-
ematicians, both ancient and modern.
It also purposes to have the subjects
of mathematical study and teaching
freely discussed. At each meeting,
simple and instructive problems re-
lating to class-room work, will be
presented. In this way it is desired
to serve a two-fold purpose; first, to
awaken an interest in the subject of
pure mathematics; second, to give
the students an opportunity to ex-
change ideas with regard to the study
and teaching of the same. All are
invited to attend these meetings.
A Challenge.
Editers U. OF Ms. DAILY:
I positively deny having fouled
Mr. Hunter in the soo yards dash
last Saturday. There were no ropes
or markings to guide me in my
course, and as there was from Io to
25 feet between me and the pole
Mr.-Hunter was not pocketed out
from winning the race. Mr. Hunter
may be a better sprinter, but in the
interest of fair play and to demon-
strate satisfactorily to his olserving
friends my honest intentions, I'will
run Mr. Hunter a iou yards dash at
any convenient time and place set
by the Athletic Association; they to
have all the gate receipts.
In the list of Post Graduate Laws
in our Saturday's issue, the name of
W. F. Wanless was' accidentally
omitted. The residence of G. A.
Kendall should be "Damascus, Me."
instead of "Napoleon, O."

Athletic Directors' Meeting.
The board of directors of the
Athletic Association met last even-y
ing in Alpha Nu hall. The business
of the meeting was principally the
passing of bills incurred last year
and the first part of this year. The
foot-ball manager made a report of
expenses past and prospective. Six-
teen men will be taken to Chicago
next Saturday and Mr. Murphy will
accompany the team. No arrange-
ments have been made to secure
reduced rates, but there will un-
doubtedly be reduced rates for the
game with Cornell in Chicago on
November 28. Tickets will be on
sale about Thursday for the game in
Detroit with Cornell on November
21. They will cost $1.25 for round
trip, including entrance to the game.
They will be for sale by the direct-
ors only, and they may be procured
at the ticket window in the main
hall every morning, at a time to be
announced later.
Professors Rolfe and de Pont and
Messrs. Duffy and Prettyman of the
advisory board were present at the
Free Press Take Notice,
The attention of the sporting
editor of the Detroit Free Press,
who says "why not call it hand-ball,
for the only part the feet cut in the
game out there are to support the
weight of the player," is called to
the account of the Princeton-Penn-
sylvania game on Saturday, in the
Philadelphia Press, where the ball
was kicked 26 times at least. This

Blind Boone's Csncert.
The concert given by Blind Boone
in the Congregational church last
evening was very well attended, and
judging from the demonstrations
the audience was very well pleased
with the entertainment. Boone's
rendition of Suwanee river was very
fine, as was his own composition the
Marshfield tornado. After the con-
cert he gave many clever imitations
of a fife and drum, music box, fast
train on the Michigan Central, and
the tuning of a violin.

Princeton vs. Pennsylvania.
Princeton defeated l'ennsylvania
on Saturday by a score of 24 to o.
At the close of the first half the
score stood 4 to o, and it was not
until fifteen minutes from the close
of the second half that Princeton
scored the other 20 points. It was
quite dark toward the close of the
game and Princeton managed to
keep possession of the ball.
