ion ot a "jack-pot" among several Ill
inois legislators at the Southern Hotel
in St. Louis.

Intensely excited over the develop
ments in the Lorimer bribery charges.
Several additional arrests are expected
in Springfield tonight.

pitiful, then Senator Lorimer was pit
iful yesterday in Washington."

That question no longer is to be a
subject or discussion. It is the Y. M.
C. A. building and so it is to be called;
Thoso who contributed toward tho
erection of the structure, under the
impression that they were giving
money for a 'Student building," may
have tho amount they gave returned

create, but with which it has to deal
"On the one hand during nineteen'
years, an amount in the neighborhood
of ?r,.",000 was contributed for a Y. M.
C. A. building, and on tho other hand'
as a result ot a campaign largely In
BlOt and 1U0.", an amount in the neigh
borhood ot' ?1,500 was contributed for
a "Student building." The committee
is unable to find any practical way by
which the pledges implied In those
two conflicting purposes can be recon
ciled, consequently the most practi
cal plan or settling the difficulty seema
to the committee to be the reimburse
ment of thoso contributing to the,
"This has already been done in the
caso of certain Individuals, and the
committee takes this opportunity of
asking those who contributed to the
"Student building" fund to so Inform
B. F. Hoffman, chairman of the ad
visory committee, at the earliest op
portunity. "After reasonable investigation, pay
ment will be made in the order of pri
ority of presentation, as rapidly aa
funds for that purpose can be secured
by the committee. In taking thla
action tho committee desires to call
attention to the fact that the aim of
the Y. M. C. A. is to benefit the men
or the University. All men In the
University, whether members of tha
association or not, are welcome to the
reading and reception rooms and to
tlie benefit of the employment bureau!
The club rooms are held free of all
charges as meeting places for student
"Associate membership in the Y. M.
C. A., is without religious qualifica
tions, and entitles tho student to all
the privileges of the building."
