Besides adopting the modified
"Bruce-Ilulbert" plan of election of
campus officers, the student council at
its regular meeting last night received
the resignation of Harold S. Hulbert,
'14M, as president. Press of scholastic
work was given as the cause of the ac-
tion. Until the election of Hulbert's
successor T. F. McCoy, secretary, will
fill the vacancy.
The band problem was discussed,
and after an investigation of the plan
advanced by the council committee,
its resolution was unanimously adopt-
ed. According to the plan which was
accepted and which will be presented
to the athletic board at its meeting
Saturday, a band of at least 30 mem-
bers is to be organized and directed
by a school of music instructor, and
the remuneration is to be either in the
form of a trip to Cornell or a monetary
consideration of $15.00. The mem-
bers of the council were united on
their stand of a closer control of such
an organization by campus powers,
and also on their attitude that the men
should receive reward of some kind.
After a thorough discussion of the
proposed plan for purifying elections
and enlightening the voter on records
of candidates and the issues at stake,
the council decided to give the method
a trial in general elections by adopting
the following resolution:
Resolved:-That all candidates for
campus activities be required to pre-
sent their stand on current campus
questions and give their campus rec-
ords. This is to be published and su-
pervised by an election committee
from the student council.
Discussion centered around the
question of including class officers in
the plan, and it was finally decided
that the early election dates make a
fair trial of the plan impossible in the.
short time remaining so only the gen-
eral officers of campus elections were
included in the resolution.
In accordance with the interclass
constitution which provides that all
but freshmen class nominations should
take place on the Saturday of the sec-
ond week of the first semester, and
elections to be held the following Sat-,
urday, and freshman nominations and
elections to be held a week later, the
council fixed Saturday, October 11 as
the nomination day for all upper class-
es, and Saturday, October 18 as elec-
tion day Freshmen classes will nom-
inate officers October 18 and will hold
elections a week from that date. l

ADOPT NEW' PLAN
FOR CLASS GAMES
Gain 500 New Members Making
a Final Roll of About
The percentage system will be used
in determining the football champion-
ship of each department in place of
the elimination process that has been
in vogue in previous years. This was
the decision reached yesterday after-
noon at a meeting of the class football
managers. Ten teams were represent-
ed at the meeting and all were in fa-
vor of the new method which was the
suggestion of Floyd Rowe, director of
The contests start October 20. Each
team will play every other team of
their department and the class win-
ning the largest percentage of games
will be champions of that department.
The winners of the departments will
play to decide the championship of the
Teams standing second in the differ-
ent departments will also compete for
second honors. By using this method
teams will have longer schedules and
no championship will be won by pure
luck as has often been the case in the
past, when a winning team has been
defeated in its opening strtuggle by
luck breaking against it.
Fourteen teams have already enter-
ed in the class league and Director
Rowe said last night that he had hopes
of two other classes placing teams in
the running. Those already entered
are as follows: four literary classes,
four engineering classes, three law
classes, the sophomore medics, a gen-
eral combined department freshman
team composed of all first year class-
es not in the above three departments,
and a general department team picked
from all the department classes not
entering the class teams.

Touchdown From Douglas'

With Goal in Danger; Douglas
Coach Douglas brought his squad of
All-Fresh candidates over to the main
gridiron to battle the Varsity yester-
day afternoon, with the result that a
somewhat misfit eleven of Varsity
aspirants was obliged to put in a hard
half hour's work.to score one touch-
down against the youngsters.
Coach Yost did not line up his usual
first team -for signal drill prior to the
All-Fresh engagement. His team of
regulars was composed of about half
first string candidates, and hal. of the
second list. The other men worked
on the second squad. When the coach

his team presented still a different

string of players to battle the Yost

his best combination was a good one.
Critics generally agreed that the
freshmen showed surprisingly well,
while the football followers gathered
to watch the scrimmage showed plain-
ly that their sympathies were with the
The Varsity received the freshmen's
kick at the beginning of play, and for
a time it appeared that the big team
would march straight over the All-
Fresh goal line. The youngsters
braced, however, and twice recovered
the ball in the shadow of their own
goal posts and punted out of danger.
On one occasion the freshmen held
the Varsity for downs and once they
recovered the ball on a Varsity fum-
Getting possession of the ball near
mid-field, the freshmen showed that
their offense was not to be 'dealt with
lightly. They marched the ball straight
up the field on long gains by Maul-
betsch, McNamara, Splawn and Ziger,
only to lose it on a fumble when they
had a fine chance to score. Later the
same trick was repeated, with a 45
yard run by Ziger and long plunges
by Maulbetsch featuring the attack.
This time the freshmen attempted to
drop kick on the third down, with
Maulbetsch doing the booting, and
failed in the attempt. Had the young-
sters kept up their plunging game
they might have had a second oppor-

ANGELL TO BE IMPROVING.
President-emeritus Angell was able
to walk about the lower floor of his
home yesterday. That this steady im-
provement will place Dr. Angell on the
campus within the month, is the opin-
ion of .the attending physician.
saking the aid of the gleaming rails,
braved alone the labarynth of the
paths which bi-tri-, and multi-sect the
campus. For seven feet he fared well
and then he fell to mother earth. Em-

the fall of man. It was a .board. The
board bore the word, "Please."
He realized that he was on the
wrong track and changing his course
to north by north east, steered for the
ghosty form of Memorial hall. Again
frenzy born of hallucination, sped at
full speed for the library. Within a
rod of his haven, he catapulted over
an unseen obstruction, turned a double
sommersault, skidded from an oak
tree to the cement pavement and slid
to the flagpole with brakes set.
He was found in the topmost branch-
es of Tappan Oak trying to scratch
his seventh vertebrae with his left el-
bow and with every failure he sighed
