Undoubtedly the. athletic and social event of the season will take place ncxt Wednesday, June lst, at 4:10 p. m.. on the grounds of the Athletic Association. Even the war is abandoned as a topic of conversation when the faculty game is mentioned. For the past twc j ears this contest has afforded great enjoyment to the spectator. This year the two contesting teams, namely, the University faculty team versus the High School faculty enforced by the Bcard of education, have consented to devote half the procèèus to the athletic trophy room and the other half to the High School associa-tion. It has long been the desire of the Athletic Assoclatioh to furnish a trophy room in the gymnasium. Every Eastern college lias . a trophy room where the records, p:ctures of its teams, banners, medals, cups, etc, are kept. The proceeda froti the game on June lst will contribute materially t.o the accomplishment of the Athletic Association's desires. The admirsion fee will only be 25 cents, a ridiculously small iigure for the amusement surely to be derived. At iirst ir was thought best to admit ladies free, but their own objections to that plan were sufflcient to overrule the committee's decisión. They feit that this game v.ould afford them an opportunity to disprove the charge so often made against them, to the effect that tney were hot loyal to college spirit; espeeially the senior girls, who were instrumental in the defeat of a trophy room memorial, will accept this chance to show that they are willing to eontribute ■ to a trophy room when the plan is so reasonable as the above. No assurar.ces of an enjoyable occasion need be ■ made to those who witnessed the game played last year, Remember the cause is as worthy as the exhibition is excellent. Thee ommittee is enabled to a:inounce that Prof. Trueblood and Prof. Springer are the respective managers of the 'Varsity Faculty team and the High School team.
