AuQustanV League Decides to
Hold No More Debates With
the Decorah School. -
ALLEGE UNFAIR TREATMEN1
Local College Determines to Sever
Relations Officers' for Coming
Year Are Chosen.
Augustana wil have no more de
bates with Luther college of Decorah,
Iowa. At a meeting of the College
league yesterday afternoon k was de
cided to sever the annual debating ar
rangement which has existed between
the two institutions for several years
and enter into a new league with one
or more other colleges.
The immediate cause for the rupture
between Augustana and Luther col
lege was due to action on the part of
the debaters representing the latter
institution in the debate held a year
ago. It is asserted by the Augustana
debaters that the Luther college men
deliberately misinterpreted the ques
tion and discussed a phase of the sub
ject which both sides had previously
agreed should not be considered in
the debate. The consequence was that
Augustana lost the decision by a vote
of 2 to 1.
The Augustana debating team' will,
however, not sever lelations with
Bethany college, at Lindsborg Kan.,
this year.' The Augustana team had
some complaint to make because of
the selection of judge last year, but
as this was unavoidable, and not, the
fault of the Kansas school, it is not
taken as cause for cutting 15 4hany off
the list also.
Will Form l.rflKiie.
The executive committee was in
structed by the league to negotiate
with other colleges with a view of
effecting a debate agreement. An ef
fort will be made to form a triangular
or quadrangular league with Lombard.
Monmouth, Coe, Crinnell, or other col
leges in the Immediate neighborhood
of the tri-cities. Such an arrangement
Is considered particularly advan
tageous, as it will permit the students
to take more interest in the debates
and make it possible for large delega
tions to accompany the debating teams
on their trips.
The College league held its annual
election of officers yesterday, result
ing as follows:
President C. O. Bengtson.
Vice President M. Skarstedt.
Secretary Roy Thelander.
Corresponding Secretary .1. T. lie
line. Treasurer Elmer Swanson.
Executive Committee M. A. Gustaf

The radical changes in dress induced the Dress
Makers Association of America to endorse and demon
strate these Bon Ton and Royai Worcester models in
their 1908 convention whiclfrecently met in Chicago.
The demonstrations were made at the Auditorium
Hotel on living models, and created sensational en
thusiasm. Corset education was never so necessary as now
when Directoire styles demand lines which can only
be secured by the corset. Bon Ton and Royal Wor

new tailored suits. Changes have been radical, variety is great, artistic
skill is evident in every garment. Lines of dignity and grace characterize
these classic models. . '
The assemblage, now ready, will thoroughly inform every woman on
the foremost dress fashion tor fall.
The scores of models show a multitude of differfng effects, modi
fied ideas of the Directoire coat, with large revers, others with smart
waistcoats of contrasting color. There is a decided change in the collars,
most of them, close fitting, others in the Robespierre effect; pockets are
lower and larger, and a number are on the Colonial shape.
There is also a change in the cut of the garments from those of last
year, particularly in the plain tailored effects. The shoulders are cut nar
rower and the coats fall in staight lines, giving the hipless figure. The
sleeves are close fitting, the skirts gored, some with smart panels, others
mounted on hih fitted girdle. They fall in graceful, clinging lines.
The trimming used this season on the tailored suits is of Ottoman
Silk on the collar, cuffs and revers also cording which forms ornaments.
Other models are elaborately braided or trimmed with satin. Still others
are severely plain, devoid of trimming the beautiful lines evidencing the
