outfield. All there are steady hitters
and sure fielders.
Lyle Croft will probably fill the vacancy at third base which was left by
the graduation of Arnold. Captain
Rouse will possibly ibe shifted from
short to second, leaving that place
open for either Adams, captain of the
1923 Frosh, or Bill King who formerly held that position. "Chuck" Alberts will give Rouse plenty of competition for the keystone sack.
The catching staff has two aspirants of merit in Derrick and Sauer.
Both of these men caught for the
last year and Sauer also played
in the outfield, part of the time. The
staff should be
stronger this year than it has been
for quite a while.
Gregg and Stokes, will return. Then
there are several men who were on

The Men's Student Council of the
University will have representatives
ott both the University Senate and
the Discipline Committee, the membership of which has been confined to
faculty memlbers exclusively in the
past, it was decided at the regular
meeting of the Senate held Monday
afternoon. The petition of the Coun
for such representation was pre
sentcd to the Universiy Council which
reported favorably to the Senate by
whom it was passed without delay.
This action on the part of the sen
ate is a decided compliment to the
Student Council and shows that the
senate is keenly aware of the close
spirit of cooperation between students
and faculty, largely brought about by
the efforts of the Student Council
Marshall Barnes, president' of the
Council, said that menUbers would be
selected from that body at their next
meeting to fill the newly created position.
It is understood that the Woman's
will present a similar petition at an
early meeting of the senate. Memlbers
of the Senate 'were confident that this
request would be granted by their or
ganization. This will serve in a very
great measure to link the student body
and faculty closer together.
Among the other important rules
passed by the Senate at their Mon
day meeting was the decision that all
dances must be held on Saturday
nights or on the night preceding a
holiday. The Social committee of the
Student Council was asked to arrange
their program to conform to this ruling. The reason given for this ruling
was that so many fraternities had asked for dance dates on Friday nights
