Message Sent From Local Station to
North Dakota University.
Communications were ° established
Wednesday night between the wireless
stations of the University of North Da-
kota and the local plant, for the first
time. The test lasted about half an
hour. Waves of different length and
different power were used, and al-
though the Dakota station received
the message :ent from here, the local
apparatus was unable to receive the
western message on account of the
equipment of that station. This is the
longest distance a message has been
sent westward by the local plant. An-
other attempt will be made to com-

Coach Douglas and Manager Du Bois
Meet Class Managers to Discuss
Season's Work.
Hockey Manager F. W. Du Bois met
the managers of the different depart-
ment hockey teams last night at the
Union and drew up the schedule, for
the season's contests. It was decided
that the games would be played in
three series, one section to be finished
before the examinations.
The science team is a combined ag-
gregation of the dental, homeopathic,
and pharmic departments. The medic
department will not enter a team in
the race on account of a lack of hock-
eyites among the doctors. This leaves
only four teams to battle for the flag.
Coach Douglas, who will have
charge of all the squads, attended the
meeting and told of the great import-
ance of proper training to a real live
hockey team. It was arranged that
the different squads will have regular
afternoons to practice upon the rinks.
All the games will be played in the
afternoon with a possible exception
that some of the science contests may
be played in the evening.
The first third of the schedule is as
follows: lits vs. science, January 17;
engineers vs. laws, January 18; sci-
ence vs. laws, January 20; lits vs.
cngineer-s, January 22; lits vs. laws,
January 24; science vs. engineers,
January 25.

Definite action regarding the nature
of dances at the 1914 Junior hop was
taken at the meeting of the combined
committeecs at the Alpha Delta Phi
house yesterday afternoon. The com-
mittee on dance resolutions reported
that the approved dances will be the
waltz, two step, Boston, and tango.
All fast dancing as well as all forms
of an exaggerated and questionable
nature will be strictly barred. More-
over dark dances which have been a
distinctive feature at previous hops,
will be discontinued. On account of
the opinion recently expressed by the
faculty, the hall must be properly illu-
minated at all times. There will, how-
ever, be several feature dances, and
the committee will communicate with
the orchestras in regard to them.
Various Contracts are Arranged For.
The music will be furnished by the
Fisher orchestra of Kalamazoo and
the Finzel band of Detroit. Both ag-
;regations have agreed to play until
3:00 a. in. As usual there will be 48
dances. Decorations, which are in
charge of the National Flag Decorat-
ing Co., of Detroit, will be entirely
new. The old maize and blue canopy
will be discarded, and with a new can-
opy and a number of features in the
line of large hanging baskets,
the general effect will be es-
pecially unique. The contract
for invitations and programs
was let to the E. A. Wright Co., of
Philadelphia, who have handled the
,vork before.
The committees decided that no
lowers are to be worn by the guests
at the hop itself. The committee on
refreshments made no definite report,
but it was decided that the contract
will not be given to the local caterer
who handled the job last year. The
contract will be let in the near future
to a Detroit firm. By a new system of
serving, it is expected that much of
the usual waiting will be avoided. It
was decided to make the recital to be
;iven by the musical clubs on Thurs-
day evening, preceding the hop, an in-
formal affair.
Petition of Delta Chii Laid on Table.
The petition of Delta Chi to be in-
