Clone Call for the Gym. A
Last Wednesday night the college
gymnasium narrowly escaped de
struction by fire. Shortly after 10
o'clock the alarm was given and
students rushing to the building
found it filled with smoke. The
tire was in the northeast corner on
the first floor, but the smoke coming
through the upper floor gave the
impression that the fire was in the
commandant's office. The stream
from the fire hose was poured into
the upper rooms for some time
before the real location of the fire
was discovered. When found, the
Barnes were quickly extinguished.
The floor and walls of the northeast
room were burned out and the wo
men's dressing room adjoining was
badly scorched. Much damage
was done in CaptainKimmei's office,
the records, equipment, uniforms,,
etc., being soaked with water.
The cause of the accident is un
known, but is probably due to care
lessness of persons who had been in
the building earlier in the evening.
The fire originated in the thick
floor mats used for athletic purposes
The damages will probably amount
to $400. The state carries its own
