a committee composed of dele-
gates from   every representative
student organization  of impor-
tance. A   program   of speakers

inated with the Commercial club.
      OLYMPIA MUST WAIT.
  The Olympia Literary Society
made another attempt to gain ad-

joint debate. As the opinion pre-
vailed among the other societies
that Olympia should wait until
she had fully developed her semi-
public system, the challenge was
not accepted.

  Philomathia   has elected  the
following closers for the fresh-
man blowout debate: Arthur H.
