Becauso of the variance in the number of games to be played between the teams comprising the Western Intercollegiate League, and the doubt as to which of these games courit in flguring the percentages, the standings of the teams are in doubt.

Four pianos, a large mandolín and banjo club, and a good orehestra will fumish the music. This year the Festival will be, perhaps, more popular than ever as it will be of a more patrlotio nature.
