June 26. For the past few days the
student and faculty committees have 1
been doing everything within their
power to make satisfactory arrange

Associated Students until the Fall. It
has been some time since the students
have suffered from such financial dif
ficulties as at present. A number of
individuals in the city have informed
the association that unless its bills
are settled immediately trouble will
result. It was feared that some of the
notes which were outstanding would be
collected from the Indorse rs. who were
members of the faculty and friends of the
college in the city. '
Robert Evans, the graduate manager
since the opening of the present year,
tendered his resignation last week,
assigning no reasons for his action. The
board of control of student affairs ac
cepted his request, and, on account of the
urgent need of a manager, appointed
Loren Grins toad to act in his place until
the students gut back to college next

he will accept the position or not. For
