"With more than $4000 in cash and
pledges actually reported and assured
at 10:30 o'clock last night, the suc-
cess of the financial drive of the S.
C. A. is certain," stated Earl Sawyer
"The goal set for the drive is $6000,
and although the drive officially ended
last night, nevertheless soliciting will
continue until the entire amount sought
is raised," said Perry Hayden, Pres.
"We have been well pleased with the
amount of the individual subscriptions
which have averaged in the neighbor-
hood of $2.00, and with 50 fraternities
still to report and 2500 independents
we feel confident that we should go
over the top the first part of the week."
jHigh man in pledges and actual
cash is John C. Allen, '26, with $115.
Highest fraternity ip to last night
was the Chyron with $113.50, closely
followed by Theta Chi with $109.
Although the drive officially closed
last night, nevertheless a clean up
squad, composed ofthe best solicitors
will continue to call upon students,
who have not been given an opportun-
ity to contribute
The amount raised in the financial
drive of the S. C. A. last year was
$4300. This has been increased to
$6000, due to an increase in the en-
tire budget from $23,000 to $28,000.
The balance of the addition will be
raised among alumni, faculty and
friends, under the direction of Donald
E. Williams, '25L, who has been added
to the S. C. A. staff this fall as field
A choice of a handsome hammered
sterling silver pitcher or any one of
three beautiful silver loving kcups,
which are now on display at Lane
Hall, which are the gift of Mr. M. A.
Ives of this city, will be awarded to
the solicitor bringing in the highest
amount of acutal cash. Due to the ex-
tension of the drive, the winner will
not be announced until next week.
James Inglis was elected president
of a student council which has been
organized for the University high
school. home rooms served as voting
precincts for the election; nomina-
tions were by petitions. Two coun-
cil members have been chosen from
each home room, making a total of
ten student representatives on the
council. The three faculty members
are Prof. Raleigh Schorling, Mr. .
W. Stephenson, and Miss Edith
The council held its first meeting
Wednesday morning from 8 to 9. A
discipline committee within the coun-
cil for the solution of general rather
than of specific problems was de-
cided upon. A general discussion was
held upon the use of the council as
a means'of establishing group self-
control and good citizenship.
Band May Not Go
To o. S. U. Game
In spite of the fact that the at-
tendance at the annual Band Bounce
held Wednesday night in Hill audi-
torium, was the largest of the last
three years the Band failed to clear
enough money to make possible the
trip to Ohio State a week from Sat-
The early hour at which it was nec-
essary to start the program is given-
as one of the reasons for the failure
to fill the house by Arthur Smith, '25,

end there is absolutely no chance for

is the claim of every member of the
staff. Everything from the cover de-
sign to the arrangement of the pic-

radical change has been made in the'
art work. A style of Gothic motiff
will be followed to be in keeping with
the architecture of the new campus
buildings, particularly the new Law
club. Two thousand five hundred dol-
lars more will be spent this year for I'

Short Session Of Body Beginning Next
Month Will Treat Farm Legislation
And Appropriations Bill
Washington, Nov. 7.-President Coo-
lige does not contemplate at least
for the present, calling the new con-
gress into special session after next
March 4, nor does he now expect to
present any comprehensive plans of
tax reductions to the present congress
at the short session which will begin
next month.
White House spokesmen in outlining
the president's views today indicated
that farm legislation and the annual
appropriation bill would comprise
i the principal subjects of congressional
action at the approaching short ses-
In so far as tax reduction is con-
cerned it was made known that Pres-
dent Coolidge just now does not think
it advisable to reopen the whole ques-

lative problems was given after a day
devoted mostly -to conferences with

men frankly expressed the hope that
the president would not call a special
session, declaring the country has
shown no desire for immediate addi-
tional legislation,
Washington, Nov. 7.-The Republi-
cans on the basis of revised election
returns appeared today to have gain-
ed an additional seat in the House
bringing their total up to 247 or 29
more than a majority. The upset, in
the first Oklahoma district kept the
Democratic strength to 182 seats as
against 207 in the present house.
On unofficial returns, Wayne Bay-
less, Democrat was winner by a scant
margin in the Oklahoma district but
the official tabulation showed him
143 votes behind S. J. Montgomery,
Republican opponent.
If final returns show Coolidge a
winner in New Mexico, his electoral
total will be 382, as all doubt as to
his capturing North Dakota was re-
moved today when the count there
was practically completed. Loss of
New Mexico would cut the Davis
electoral votes to 136, with Senator
LaFollette at 13.

University high school pupils and
teachers at an assembly to be held

Several assemblies have already
been held. At one Pres. M. L. Burton
spoke on school loyalty. On November

The Gargoyle, campus humor maga-

small extent by Halsey Davidson, '25,
managing editor, this young man prac-'
tically wrote the whole of a fairly
passable November issue. Of coursej

tributions, one or two of which were
good, and some other members of the
