Student Councilmen Will T a k e
Charge of Sophomore Assembly
At 5 O'Clock Today#

Prominent. State Architects
Will Gather For May Party

Prominent architects of the state
and from the East are expected at
the Architpcts' May Party, which will
be held tomorrow night in Barbour
gymnasium. Although invitations
have been sent to more than one hun-
dred architects, only twelve have
signified their intention of coming.
An innovation at this year's affair,
which will be in keeping with the
Oriental environment, will be the use
of cushions instead of chairs. The
cushions will be lined around the
wall of the gymnasium. Students of
the architectural school have been
doing extensive work to carry decor-
ations out to the best effect.

Prizes for the best costumes, which
t will be judged by three faculty mem-
1 hers of the architectural college,
were announced yesterday. A lava-
lier will be awarded to the lady wear-
ing the best costume, while a cigar-
ette case, of far eastern design, will
be the prize for the best men's cos-
tume. Pictures will be taken of those
who are chosen in the elimination
dance and of those who 'win the
prizes. A composite picture of the
whole affair will also be taken.
Practically all the tickets have
been disposed of although there are
still a few available. These may be
secured from Herbert Watts, '26A.

Six Senior and Six Junior Candidates
For Council Memberships Will
Be Chosen
Candidates for the presidency of
next year's Student Council . were
named by that body at the regular
meeting in the Student Council office

semester and Colman acting in that
capacity during the second semester.
They will be voted on at the regular
all-campus election next Wednesday.
Candidates for junior and senior
councilmen will be nominated next
Friday night. Six men will be se-
lected for junior aid six for seniorj
positions from which three junior

This year a new system will be em-

seats and those at the end of the line
will take seats in the front rows.
This measure was adopted to facili-

At the conclusion of the program

10 o'clock Saturday morning and will
consist of three events; the cane
spree, the obstacle, race, and th'e

count one point in the final result
which precludes any possibility of a

All warnings of deficient grades in
