Eight Entries Will Wrestle For Titles
In Four Classes.
Beginning at three o'clock on the
main floor of the gym, the finals in
the wrestling tournament will take
place this afternoon, and will consist
of four matches. Dr. May will act in
the capacity of referee and to avoid
any long drawn out bouts, a time limit
of 30 minutes will be set, at the end of
which a coin will be tossed to decide
the championship between any two
In the semi-finals in the 145 pound
class held yesterday afternoon, be-
tween O'Connor and Casewell, the toss
of a coin was necessary to decide the
match and Casewell happened to
choose the right side, thus giving him
a place in the final bout. On account
of the injury to Bleich's feet the cup
cannot be awarded in the 150 pound
class until he has had a chance to
meet either Edie or Harris who are
matched for this afternoon.
Today's matches:
133 pound class-Stape vs. Doyle.
145 pound class-Combs vs. Case-
158 pound class-Edie vs. Harris.

No'ed Interpreter Will Ch e Recital of1
biekens' "Pickwick Papers."
Frank Speaight, a noted interpreter,
will 'give a recital of Dickens' "Pick-!
wick Papers" April 18 on the S. L. A.I
course in University Hall. The stories1
of the famous author are abridged so1
that complete stories are told in a1
evening. No manuscript or book nor{
any make-up are used by Mr. Spealght
but the speaker has the reputation oft
making the characters live before the
eyes of his audience.l
Mr. Speaight is an Englishman and
an ardent student of Dickens. He hasj
made annual tours of America in the
last six years and he was especiallyf
well received in London the first of
this year. {
Tests Show .Two Po,'ular Lecurel
Halls of Defectui Y VenliLition
That titc economics lecture room and
room G of the law building are the
two .class rooms on the campus which
show up defcctiven the matter of air '
circulation, and air purity, was the as-
sertion of Dean V. C. Vaughan yester-
day. This conclusion, was arrived at,
by Dr. Vaughan, after he and his as-
sistants 'had conducted a vigorous in-
vestigation of the ventilation of the
various class rooms about the campus.
In making these tests, a glass plate
covered with a thin film, was exposed
to the air under test. The plate was
then taken to the laboratory where the
germs which had collected ;were al-
lowed to develop, so that they could
be identified.
It was a notable fact that under this
test a number of the class rooms prov-
ed to be perfect in regard to quality
and purity of their air.

Editor, The Daily:-
May I add a word concerning the
"Granger's" controversy?
For me, there is only one possible
reason for a boycott of Granger's: if
such reason exists for the assemblies,
i exists for every dance held in-that
The two excuses offered for the boy-
cott, that the assemblies are unchap-
eroned parties and that the attendance

A synopsis of the

ly self-centered.
Unchaperoned parties, indeed! Ex-
cept to say "good evening" to and
"good ni'ht" to, pray what attention
does a university woman pay to a
chaperone? And why not? It ought to
be a fair supposition that a girl who
knows enough to behave herself at a
dance, with or without a long suffering
martyr in the corner called a chaper-
one. Yet they publicly claim by re-
fusing to go without one that they are
in danger of misbehavior released from
a chaperone's care.
The refusal to go to a dance where
town girls are admitted, is pure, un-
adulterated selfish snobbery. It i
the sarnie spirit that allows limousines
and diamonds to be lavished on one
woman at the expense of. a hundred
more lowly but less criminal sisters.
By what personal superiority have thel
boycotters been born to college and
plenty instead of the shop and ever-
lasting struggle? The exact merit or
benefit to be gained in flaunting one's
better luck by refusing to meet on a
common ground with one's fortunate
sisters is not readily apparent to a dull
fellow like myself. Jane Adams seems
to believe that living with youi poorer
neighbors is good for one's self as well
as for the neighbors: the good has
something to. do with sympathy and
kindness, though, and has nothing to
do with the complexion.
Of course, if the boycotters are ab-
staining to avoid setting the town
girls a bad example, I unequivocally
withdraw my objections with abject
apologies to every fair, unselfish, and
noble-hearted boycotter.
