This color crime was perpetrated at a meting of the interfra ternity athletic association Tuesday even ing when the executive board of this body met to complete arrangements for the doughnut basketball tournament. A representative of Spalding and com pany displayed a conglomeration and as sortment of jerseys and socks of all the shades and colors commonly found in a crazy tiuilt. while the members of the board mismatched colors for their teams to wear. The jerseys will be dyed with the first color of any combination, strip ed around the diaphragm with a broad band of the second. The socks will be hued in the same manner. The object of this confliction of colors is that it will enable the players to dis tinguish the members of the different teams. The colors are supposed to be fast without running; that is, they won’t fade. The schedule of the doughnut league wiU be run off regardless as to which way the faculty may decide on intercolle giate basketball. The ruling of the board concerning the eligibility of members of last year’s squad to play on the various teams will be delayed until after the de cision of the faculty has been reached on the intercollegiate question. The standing of the teams this year will be reckoned from a percentage ba sis. Last year the games were played by elimination. The practice hours allotted to the various organizations have been posted during which the gymnasium will be held for the exclusive use of the practicing team. Bernard Breeding, president of the board, urges every team to begin prac tice at once as the games may be played sooner than expected. Bill Hayward and Coach Bezdek have consented to offer their services as coaches if any of the teams feel the need of coaching. PRO-ALLY LITERATURE DUE TO ENGLISH WRITING “The fact that a greater amount of pro-ally literature is to be found in the library than that of the opposing bellig erent nations is due, not to any partial ity but to the preponderance of books written in the English language which reach this country.” M. H. Douglass, University librarian, expressed this opinion in sneaking of a recent criticism that the amount of war literature in the library showed a mark ed tendency in favor of the allies. “It is the policy of the library man agement to leave the selection of all books relating to the present war up to the history department. “The history department in making the selections lias attempted to secure every important book of value from a histor ical, not a military, point of view, re garless of the nationality or prejudices of the author. “If any book which we have not se cured is desired by any student, he may make his want known to the history de partment and if the work is of sufficient value it will be obtained.” Mr. Douglass states that many pro ally books and tracts are sent to the library as gifts from the authors, and these are placed on the shelves along with the regular accessions. He says that with the opening of the war, the library added additional Austrian and German periodicals and newspapers. These have been received very irregu larly. Professor J. P. O’Hara of the history department, says that there would be more Austrian and German books in the library dealing with the war if there was any demand for them. Only a certain percent of the books written in those countries are translated into English, and very few students ever read the books printed in German, or any other foreign language, unless the work is es pecially assigned by instructors. f PRESS NOTES 1 ■k -.- ★ The first performance in this city of Jean Webster’s famous play, “Daddy Long-Legs,” will be given at the Eu ! gene theatre. The demand for seats i has been insistent since the coining of | the fascinating comedy was first an il nounced, and although there is still a i selection of good seats to be obtained | at the box office, the manager strongly | urges his regular patrons not to incur : an unnecessary risk by waiting until the 1 last minute to make purcha,es. It is now practically certain that tonight’s au dience will be the biggest of the season anil batrons .who postpone making res ervations this °aftejnoon may be disap pointed this evening. la this connection, the management requests, as °a special favor, that those who have reserved tickets and have not already called for l them, do so before 6 o’clock, there is ! danger of congestion in the theatre lob ! by at 8:15. Moreover, it would be man ifestly unfair to today’s applicants for seats if good reservations that have been held several days should be cancelled at | the “eleventh hour.” This warning is I important, because apparently every theatre-goer in the city is determined to .sec “Daddy Long Legs” Monday night.
