; i portance of making a determined
ngjii. in court to recover title to
9i,ow,vyv wortti of Umber land

Puter went into groat detail
explaining how Smith acquired
title to upwards of 100 quarter
sections and informed Woodruff
that if proper attention were giv
en to Ihe case the Government
could upset Smith's title and re
cover this land. The value of
this land alone, said Puter, would
more than compensate the gov
ernment for the monev it haa

New Y. M. C. A. Secretary at
A new Y. M. C. A. secretary
has finally been selected to fill
the position at OAC, made va
cant by the resignation of Rev.
C. T. Hurd, and the choice has
met with general approval. He
is Darwin G. Thayer, a graduate
and valedictorian in the class of
'07, and president of thA V f
J. A. during his senior year. He
was also captain of Company G.
while a senior, rankd hia-h
student and debater and k in
every way well qualified to fill
me important position to which
ne nas Deen cnosen.
Slaving acted as president Mr
Thayer is thoroughly familiar
with the Y. M. C. A. work and
its great problems at OAC and
no doubt feels a deeper respon
sibility than would many others
in his place. He was also'a per
sonal friend of the late Clayborn
ouepara, wno planned the con
struction of the new Y. M. C. A.
building, and whose chief desire
was to see it completed, giving
his life in his untiring efforts for
that cause. Shepard Hall, the
