The student council held a fifth
executive session last night in an ef-
fort to discover the ringleaders of the
attempt to forcibly enter Waterman
gymnasium on the night of the Junior
hop. No one has been asked to leave
the university on account of being
mixed up in the affair but the council
is rapidly casting aside immaterial
facts and hopes soon to get at the
bottom of the case. Another meeting
will be held beginning at 9:00 o'clock
this morning.
No definite plans have been made
for disposing of the persons who may
be found guilty of being implicated in
the fracas, but it is believed that they
will be quietly notified that It will be
to their best interests to pack up and
leave the university at once. The
names of the men who are thus asked
to leave will never be known to the
campus as this is in line with the stu-
dent council's plan of working for the
students as members of the student
body. Their action whatever it may
be, will be advisory and not adminis-
