Two students, who are devotees o

Having corralled a youth, whom they
supposed was innocent and guileless,
they proceeded to take various and
sundry sums from him by means of
flushes, full houses and four of a kind.
But the youth had none of the coin of1
the realm so he gave checks, drawn
against a $200 bank account which he
professed to have. That was most sat-
isfactory to the "studes" until they a-p
peared at the bank to cash the paper
slips. Then their troubles began.
A minion of the law, known in plain
English as a policeman, informed them
that the checks had been forged and ,
that the youth had been "innocent"
enough to leave for parts unknown. As
a matter of explanation, the undergrad-
uates disclosed the fact that the checis
had been received across a tale of+
green baize.
"This way, please," spoke the officer
and escorted them to the station.

of the sergeant as he ordered them
transported to a court of justice. Later
they had emerged, haing been depriv-
ed of some of father's hard earned
shekels, which went to furnish the
county with funds.
Hired Sleuths Are Diggng Up Scan

Two sleuths in the employ of R. T.
Crane have been hanging around the
University and student quarters for
the past six weeks, getting material
for the Chicago man's articles on the
"scandal of the colleges." When inter-
viewed, one of the men said that he
was working on a salary from Crane
and that "it was up to him to find ma-
terial for the latter's stories, regard-
less of facts." Statements concerning!
the conditions at Illinois are expected
some time in January.
A resume of college dramatics for
the last five years is being prepared
by the university news bureau. The
article will be sent to a large number
of eastern papers through the Central
Press Association c Cleveland.
The news bureau is also compilin2

subject of another article in a series

work of securing appointments.
Editor is to Lecture Tonight
Under Auspices of Local
Socialist Clubs ca
The second speaker in the Socialist
Lecture Course, W. Harry Spears, will
talk this evening on "Why Things Hap-
pen to Happen." The lecture is given
under the auspices of the local socialist
organizations at the Trades Council
Hall, corner of Main and Washington,
at eight o'clock. Mr. Spears is the
manager of a co-operative group of
socialist newspapers at Findlay, Ohio,
which comprises over 100 papers.
His talk will be an exposition of the
socialist theory of Economic Determin-
ism, and will deal with the influence
of present day economic factors on so-
cial conditions and social evolution
The lecture is expected to be one of the
most entertaining of the series because
of the broad scope of the subject with
which it deals, as well as the clear,
forceful way in which it is known to
be handled by the speaker.'
This is the lecture to have been giv-
en by Rose Pastor Stokes, one of the
most famous woman socialists in the
country, but all of Mrs. Stokes' engage-
ments were cancelled on account of
her illness. The next speaker in the
course is Frank Bohn, brother of Wil-

The University of Pennsylvania ac-
cepts as fact the rumors that Michigan
and Penn will meet in two games of
baseball this spring and looks on the
booking of the two games as assured.
Manager George R. Kent of the ePnn
team stated to "The ePnnsylvanian"
hat the two games were practically as-
sured and as Pennsylvania is anxious
that the games be arranged there
seems but little doubt that Michigan
and Penn will meet on the diamond.
In commenting on the establishment
of baseball rivalry between the two in-
stitutions "The Pennsylvanian" says:
"The commencemnent of baseball re-f
lations between the' two institutions
is particularly interesting in view of
the rivalry in other sports. Michigan,
together with Cornell, is the Red and1
Blue's most formidable opponent in
football, and the track connections
have always been close, the Wolver-
ines being annual guests at the Relays
and meeting Pennsylvania in numer-
ous indoor track contests. Last year
Michigan had games with Cornell inf
