The Choral Union.
The Choral Union held a very
enthusiastic meeting in the chapel ,
last evening. There were 03 new
lfenibers voted in, and it was
found necessary to extend the
time of the final closing of the
Choral Union against new nen-
hers, as owing to the large nui-
ber of applicants, Prof. Stanley
has been unable to examine all
Who desired admission. However
the time is fixed definitely as next
Tuesday evening. The chapel
Was very nearly filled, and those
present were assigned seats. The
first concert of tie Choral Union
series is to be given Nov. 1. A
more definite announcement of
the sale of tickets will be given in
to-morrow's DAILY.
Field Day.
The fall field sports will be held
on Saturday, November 8, under
the control of the Rugby associa-
tion. It has not been determined
as yet, what the list of events will
be, but the association will prob-
ably take action in the matter, at
its meeting Saturday morning.
Since athletics have taken new
life this year, and the students
are more attentive to the athletic
reputation of the U. of M., it be-
comes the duty of the managers
of all branches, foot-ball, base-
ball, tennis and track athletics to
Introduce the improved methods
In Vogue at the more advanced
colleges in the East. We are
using more primitive methods in
track athletics than in any other
sport. A revision of the list
of events is needed, and the
1ILY suggests the adoption of
the list of contests at the great
iiter-collegiate meeting, viz: 100,
220, 440 yds. dashes, 880 yds.
aid Iieii nile runs, running high
and running broad jls, pole
vaiilt, liaiminer and shot throwing,
120 and 220 yds. hurdles, 2 iiile
bicycle, one mile walk and teg-of-
war between class teams.
Entries to the fall games are
confined to U. of Al. athletes.
This is the custom, and it is to be
hoped that it will not be departed
from. The spring games, on the
contrary, are open to outsiders,and
the crack athletes of the D. A. C.
as a rule, take away a majority of
the prizes. This is a mistake, if
the object of these meetings is to
develop home talent. A select
team of track athletes sent to the
annual inter-collegiate games at
New York would do more to
advance athletics here, to attract
attention to, and to make a name
for their great institution among
collegians, than any move that
could be made.

Mr. G. L. Swiggett, the instruc-
tor in Engineering German
and French, is a graduate of the

present at work on the ''Metaphor
of Steinmas," the intention being
to prove, tht Steinmas is the most
modern of the Minnesingers.
Master of Laws.
Seventeen of the '90 laws have
already returned and entered for
the Master's degree. The class
will probably number about 25
when completed. The members
have organized a superior club
court with the following officers:
Chief Justice, E. F. Johnson; As-
sociate Justices, 1. F. Griffin and
D. B. Richards; Clerk, It. II. Ben-
nett; Deputy Clerk, A, A. Dorn;

Freshman Spreads.
Yesterday afternoon the Sopho-
more girls were delivering the
invitations to the annual spread
given by the Sophomore class to
the Freshman co-eds. The spread
is to be given in Nickels' hall
next Friday evening, Oct. 24.
As has been the custom, the girls
of the upper classes will act as
escorts for the Freshmen, while
the Sophomore girls will be gath-
ered at the hall to receive. This
pleasant and time-honored custom
has been almost the only gather-
ing of the ladies, duriing the col-
lege year, but now the Ladies'
Club, whose organization has been
briefly spoken of in these columns,
promises a larger number of such
meetings. These last mentioned
will include all the ladies of all
departments, while the Freshman
spread is confined to the Literary

and ]Dental departments gave a
very pleasant spread to the Fresh-
men girls of these departments,
and included also the ladies from
all the other departments except-
ing the Literary. The lady phy-
sicians of the city also helped to
entertain. The spread was given
at the house of Mrs. Miner on
Liberty street. There were about
100 present and pleasure reigned
supreme till a late hour.
