were opposed because of the tre

saw the outlay, but could .not
see the resultant benefit. Others
had fair- wells, or were Satisfied
with the wafer given them from
other sources, so were opposed.

'The Senior members of the O. A.
C. Miner's Association treated
the lower .class men in the mining-
department to a very unique
entertainment Tuesday evening.
The large basement at the home
of frof : Parks was ' converted
into a realistic mine, manned and
equipped " by the :' Senior class.
The lpwer classmen ',were given
the privilege of visiting 'and ' in
sjctinthe"nnne7in ious mining operations were in
full swing. - ; . - 7
The visitors were-lowered into
the mine through the shaft and
as they stepped - from the cage
into the blackness below they
were met by a ; shift boss, who
conducted them through the
dangerous underground passages
and pointed out things of interest
to miners. After visiting the
surveying squad the visitors
were conducted to the stope in a
remote-part of the mine,' through
the manway. In the; ctope 'a.
gang of drill m$n were at work
with hammerand drillf; !putting
in a round of , shots. In the way
out of the stope the shift bosses
pointed out j the ' chute 1 1
