Buehrer, '2614 ), kr, 'E d, oWild,

Class 're ideints
Marry Hawkins, '26E, Clifford Bueh-
rer, '26D, George Hacker, '26Ed., Os-
car F. Wild, '26A and Wesley G. Reid,
'26M, were chosen to lead their re-
spective classes at elections held yes-
terday under the direction of the Stu-
dent council.
Hawkins won the engineering pres-
idency by defeating Eugene Cardwell,
'26E, who received 52 votes to Haw-
kins' 81. Cardwell was elected vice-
president of the class on the nextj
ballot. The secretaryship went to
Victor Owen, who scored 70 votes to l
60 for William Arnold. Joseph Graves
beat out William Day for the posi-
tion of treasurer. The election was1
held at the meeting of the class at|
11 o'clock yesterday.
Hacker had no opposition when the
senior class of the school of educa-
tion organized, being chosen unani-1
mously for the presidency. John Os-
born, was also then unanimous choice
of the class in the vote for treasurer.
Virginia Spain won the vice-presi-
dency when she defeated Mildred
Morrman by one vote. Irma Schultz
carried off the secretary's position
from two other candidates, both of
whom entered the final vote, due to
a tie on the nominating ballot.
Buehrer was the oinly other presi-I

Through a careful analysis of one
of the student's ledgers at a local
bank it has been discovered that over
90 per cent of the students' accounts
go below ten dollars during the
month. Fifty-one per cent of these
attempt to overdraw their account at
some time in the year, but this is
( lone mostly through carelessness,
bank officials state. The minimum
service charge on these "accounts be-
low $50" does not begin to cover the
extensive book work necessary to
handle the accounts, but it is useful
in eliminating worthless small die
The number of bad accounts has[
steadily increased in the last few
years,. bank officers claim, due mostly
to the lowering of the general morale.
"A man used to be humiliated when
his bank told him he was overdrawn,"
one of the university branch banks
stated, "but now a fellow thinks he's
pretty good if he can get some extra
cash out of the bank for a few days.";
State street clothiers have little
trouble with absolutely worthless
checks. Their average bank note is
written for a larger sum than the
other mercantile establishments, and
except for the professional forgers
that come and go from the campus,
their student checks are honored.


Oftentimes through carelessness, an
account is overdrawn, but the cus-I
tomer makes it good as soon as he
is notified.
Drug stores with their countless
small checks receive unhonored checks
more often. One State street phar-
macist claims that over $100 a year
is lost in this way in spite of the
required address and telephone num-
ber on each signature. It has been
suggested that all such accounts be
reported to some ┬░organization, such
as The Daily, and in this way re-
ceive some publicity. A record would
be kept of bad checks, and the infor-
mation would be given to the mer-
Co-eds are often too careless about
their finances, the photographers
state. Many are the "sweet young
things" who' come over on the Friday
before Christmas vacation, settle their
account by check, and then go im-
mediately to the bank and draw their
balance out before the photographer's
check has come through. Then the i
picture-taker waits a few months un-
til the financial depression of the I
yuletide season is over.
The situation at the book stores and

The seniors of the architectural col-

the day came when both the vice-.

the architectural class was decided by
one vote. Gilbert Richey took the*

ballot in both races was 15 to 14.

For three days the resolution was

Tutorial, Alumni 1lutions And
Athiefle Reception
Chairmen of 16 Union committees,
who will hold office during; the pres-
ent school year, as named by Albert
B. Adams, '26, president of the Umiom,
and approved by the committee on
appointments, were announced late
yesterday. The appointments were
approved at a meeting of tme commit-
tee yesterday, and the chairmen in
turn selected their assistants upon
the advice of Adams. Among the ap-
pointmnents were 13 chairmen, who
will compose the executive council
of the Union, five of whom will head
new committees, 'and the th-ree chair-
men of the standing house committees.
Two assistants to Richard Barton, '26
recording secretary, were also named
The new committees created were
comnmi;ttees on debt, lectures, fresh-
man tutorial, alumni relations, and
athletic reception.
The debt committee will carry out
a new financial policy as regards the
delinquent subscriptions to the Union
building fund. It is the present plami
to fund the entire debt by means of
a camhpaign in which each delinquent
subscriber will be given an oppor-
tunity to either- renew omr cancel his
note. Students residing in cities
where delinquent subscribers live,
will be delegated to consult such' sub-
scribers in an effort to obtain their
attitude toward the matter during the
Christmas and Easter recesses. If
any such delinquents express them-
selves as not desiring to be members
of the Union, their cases will be
dropped and nu further effort will be
made to collect payments due, accord-
ing to the new plan.
The lectures committee was estab-
lished for the purpose of bringing the
more popular type of prominent men
here to address' students at the Union.
Hopes of arranging emgagements with
such personages as Chvarles Evans
[Iughes, Clarence Darrow,and execu-
tives of many largo industrial and
manufacturing concerns, have been
expressed in connectbUmn with the
committee's work. Talks by Fielding
H. Yost to students particularly in-
terested in athletics and by Profes-
sor E. i. Sunderland, business mama-
ger of the Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications, to others inclined
towards the field of journalism, will
also be arranged, it is said.
The freshman tutorial c omnittee
will attempt to follow the systemnow
in vogue at Harvard between the fac-
ulty and student body, encouraging in-
timate relationship, except that the
faculty advice here will be confined
to freshmen. It is the plan to as'
sign every entering student to a fac-
ulty member who will act more in the
capacity of guardian than instructor
at different times during the year up-
on the reciuest of the student.
To assist the alumni in obtaining
suitable roomns at "phe Union and in
rooming houses here on special ac-
casions such as football games, the
May festival and Commencement, will
be one of the chief functions of the
alumni relations committee. The
plan now on foot calls for the com-
pilation of a temporary directory, oin
such occasions, li'ting the location of
alumni in the city, that former class-

mates may have some means of find-
ing each other while in this city.
The principal function of the ath-
letic reception commmittee will be to
co-operate with the Blue Key society
and to assist generally in arranging
entertainment for visiting' athletic
The life membership committee this
