held Early Next Semester
CLOSE IOMIPiETITION IS PROMISED
\\restling makes its first move on
the checkerboard of indocr sports, the
third week after the start of the new
semester, hiut already extensive plans
are being put under way for the hold-
ing of the annual tournament in Wat-
erman gymnasium. Dr. G.A. May, who
as director of the gymnasium was in-
strumental in fathering the plans, has
announced that cups will be put up
to furnish added incentive to thos,,
who would win t ampus fame oa the
mat. The utive work of arrange-
ments has be'n placed in the hands of
J. C. Peterson, '13. .
It was decided' yesterday by Dr.
MAy and Poterson that there was
no partieular or urgent reason for the
holding of a general meeting as pre-
vious!y announced.. Instead of the de-
tails of bouts being explained in meet-
ing, a poster has been' placed in the
gym wrestling room which sets forth
the rules and weights which will gov-
ern this winter's tournament. The
contenders will be divided into four
classes on the grounds of weight. The
first class will be for the light-weights,
there being no under limit and the
upper standing at 133 pounds. Next
will be the welter-weights with an up-
per limit of 145 pounds. Then comes
the middle-weights with an upper lim-
it of 145 pounds. Then come the mid-
dle-weights who must top not less
than 158 pounds on the scales, and
above this figure will be the fourth
class, the heavy-weights. The only
requirement for this class is that the
subject weigh in above 158 pounds,
the upper limit being removed. The
bouts will be wrestled under the Amer-
ican amateur rules, and it is under-
stood that Dr. May will act as refer-

TO BE AN UNUAL OFFERING
Purely Oriental ;Entertainment Gives
Promise of Many New
With a program unequalled at any
previous event of that nature, the
"Chinese Night" to be given at New-
berry hall this evening will doubtless
be a record-breaker.
A playlet written and to be produc-
ed especially for the occasion is prom-
ised with an exceptional oriental cast
and a stage environment of magnifi-
cence. One of the Chinese women in
the university will take part. Many
features of unusual interest will be
introduced in picturesque scenes.
An illustrated lecture on the Chin-
ese revolution will be given for the
first time before a public audience. An
instrumental quartet will furnish
some Chinese music. The shuttle-
cock dance-a common game in Chin-
ese schools-and slight-of-hand will
The house will be open at 7:30 and
an informal reception in the parlors
precedes the regular program which
begins at 8:00 o'clock. It is expected
that the hall will be crowded to the
limit. Purely Chinese refreshment
will be served. The affair is open to
the public, and the entire program
will be free of charge.
