NEW RULINGS FOR
TO INSURE SAFETY
TO LESSEN DANGEB
"PEP" MEETINGS TO BE HELD
Pushball 3Iiist Be Kept Off Ground;
Float in River to Award Deci-
sions in Tug-of-War .
New rules will prevail during the
spring contests next week end, accord-
ing to a statement given out yester-
day by Francis T. Mack, '16E, general
chairman of the Student Council com-
mittee in charge of the annual battles
between the two lower classes. Prob-
ably the most important of the dhanges
which make for safety will be that
in the pushball contest a new ruling
this year provides that the big ball
must start and remain off the ground.
This will greatly lessen the dangers
incident to the struggle, and will make
it easier to move the ball about. In
addition, poles marking the boundaries
of the two sides will be used for the
"Pep" meetings for the two classes
will be held next week, the freshmen:
meeting next Wednesday night, and
the second year men holding their ses-
sion on Thursday night. Both meet-
ings will be addressed by men prom-
inent on the campus and will be held
in the auditorium of the Natural Sci-
At the tug-of-war this year -a float
will be placed in mid-stream for the
first time to aid in awarding the de-
cision, which will be given at the
end of 20 minutes to the side which
has pulled the flag on the middle of
the big rope nearest to its own side
of the river. The battle will be staged
either at the gas plant or at Wall!
street, the choice depending on thel
height of the water in the river at
the time of the affair.

At a meeting of the combined Glee

of the Chemistry building last night,
plans were discussed for the reorgan-

sed. calling for the appointment of a
committee of five, including the pres-
ent president of the clubs ,and for
two representatives from each club,
the duties of the committee to consist
in looking un data and in formulat-
ing plans and perhaps a constitution
to be submitted for the approval or
ratification of the clubs at the next
meeting. The members of the com-
mittee have not yet been appointed.
Just what form the recommendation
of the committee will take is a mat-
ter of conjecture. It is certain thatr
the clubs will be under the general
supervision of a faculty manager next
Suggestions were also heard con-
cerning the basis of membership in
the permanent club. It is probable
that the committee will take action
regarding this matter by returning
