TWO BEST GIRLS

.; ; .... Senior Flagv . ..--.v
; It was: almost - a riot.'' - It.: hap-
pened up. in the hall on ihird -floor
of the administration , building? at
the college Tuesdajr .afternoon,.
For a time only male students were
engaged, but latterly ' female allies
joined in the fray. ""' - -: " :" ilC .!
: It was class-day at the college.
It is the custom of the graduates to
fly their flag from the mast head
on the Administration .buildingon
that day. It is also the custom of
the juniors to haul it ."down if they
can. -' -And that was the cause of
the' riot. . - 5: U':-- "--
The ; flag . had 'flapped in the
breeze all forenoon. - At noon a
junior had shot it downbj' shooting
off the. pulley in the mast head with
; a bullet, from a Springfield ' : rifle.
The shot was fired from a spot near
Mechanical Hall, and was - ac
counted good marksmanship. -
. After the flag had been shot
down, the - seniors again hoisted it
on an " " improvised , mast. They
placed a guard on the third floor to
keep it there. . This guard, the
iuniors and their - allies attemoted
to overpower. .. 71 he contest was ex
citing: It was good-humored, but
rough enough that, several; came
out of the scrimmage bruised : or
scratched. " John Gault' s head got
a heavy whack from the big buckle
in the end of a heavy , belt,-and a
' - lump . was raised where
the blow fell.
Senior girls finally appeared on
the scene and said that: the juniors
were no gentlemen.' A .big senior
and an. equally big junior faced
each " other threatmgly, "and war
was imminent.-- The big senior's
bestgirl grabbed his coat-tails and
pulled back, and the other Best
girl performed , similarly on the big
junior, l nose- wno saw it - aver
that the scene was one m a tnous
and for the : greatest painter. It
stopped the fight. ' And the "flag
still flew, though the juniors said
it was at half mast, until halt - past
four, when the seniors pulled it
down of their own accord.
