UNION BILLIARD TOURNEY
DRAWS EXPERT CUEISTS
An extraordinary brand of bil-
liard playing is being shown by the
cueists entered in the campus bil-
liard tourney which the Union is run-
ning off in the billiard room. Accord-
ing to Al Taylor, manager of the
Union billiard room, the standard set
is well above that established in last
year's tournament. "Al" made sure
of the quality of the champion as-
pirants by requiring them to play a
match with him before allowing them
to enter the tourney. The competi-
tion is sharp and with Harbarth, last
year's league winner, not entered, the
chance for first place rests in the
hands of practically every man en-

"To 'te opened only in case of fire,"'
Such is the inscription that adorns
several of the many doors of the Uni-
versity fire department. Last night'
the doors were opened, considerably, it
appeared, against their will, for the,
building which houses the Univer-
sity's fire fighting equipment, caught
The east end of this building, which
is located west of the Library, and
back of Mason hall, is used as a store-
house for baled paper. Twelve or
more bales of this paper were, at the
time of the fire, stored there. So far
as was learned, there had been no
occasion for anyone to enter this
building after 4:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, when the last of the jani-
tors had deposited the day's quota pf
baled waste paper in the room.
As the rapidity with which baled'
paper ignites is comparatively slow, it
seems possible that the fire may have'
been started shortly before 5 o'clock.
At 5:55 o'clock the city fire depart-
ment was on the job, first using chem-
icals, and later drenching the bales
with water. The building, which is a,
frame structure, has brick partitions,
but wooden frame work. The last
was slightly damaged.
This is the first fire reported on the
A time clock has recently been in-
stalled in the paint shop, which is lo-
cated on the north side of the build-
ing, so that employes' entering the
building at various tins during the
day can report.
The usual crowd attendant upon
anything pertaining to the unusual
was present. The usual comments
were offered. The usual amount of
help was given - a policeman, and
fireman, and a couple of students
were available to push the fire and
hose carts from the house.
