THE ARGUS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30. 1008.
Augustana Class Gathers at Harper
and Enjoys Banquet While
FEMALE DISGUISE WINS DAY
Last Student Evades Tormentors by
Donning Woman's Clothing
Now Are Termed "Yellow."
r Yesterday the freshmen class of Au
gustana college completely turned the
tables cm the sophomores, scoring the
first great victory of the' season. The
annual freshmen banquet, the biggest
social event of the year, was pulled oft
at the Harper house without "a single
hitch, every freshmen escaping the
toils of their rivalsT the sophomores,
who made desperate efforts to capture
the wily umler-classmen. The last
freshie to get into the hotel passed
through the cordon of surrounding
sophomores in the disguise of a wo
man. ; ' The sophomores yesterday suspect
ed early that a banquet was "in the
air" and were making deep and dark
plans to completely upset the affair by
capturing as many freshies as possi
ble. To their utter consternation,
however, they discovered at 3 o'clock
in the afternoon that every freshie had
disappeared from the college between
2 and 3 o'clock. The sophomores were
wild over' the neat coup the freshies
had played on them and immediately
repaired for the Harper house, where
the freshies were found enjoying them
selves over the discomfiture of their
irt Soph Prenident.
In an unguarded moment P. A. John
son, the sophomore president, was
caught in the hotel lobby by a number
of freshmen and taken a prisoner to
the banquet hall on the second floor.
It was the intention of the freshmen
to make him grace their banquet by
sitting tied in a chair, but fearful lest
the sophs wouid discover the plight of
their president and precipitate a fight
in the hotel, by trying to rescue him,
the freshies finally liberated Johnson
after he had been kept a prisoner for
about an hour.
By this time the sophs discovered
that Alvin Anderson, one of the fresh
ies, had not reached the hotel, Hore
was their chance to retrieve their hon
or, and desperate measures were at
once adopted to capture the freshie
when he arrived. From 4 o'clock in
the afternoon until 8 o'clock in the ev
ening the whole sophomore class sur
rounded the hotel and had pickets
posted at every street corner in the
neighborhood. A cab was held In
readiness at the hotel entrance to
whisk the victim away as soon as he
fell Into the toils of the sophs.
Manqurraden as Woman. .
The sophs made desperate efforts to
learn, the whereabouts of Anderson,
but every ruse was unsuccessful. An
derson had been warned of the danger
that awaited him, and realized the use-
essness of trying to get through the
sophomore lines by ordinary methods.
Accordingly, he was disguised in wo
men's apparel witn a heavy black veil
over his face, and shortly after 7
o'clock he set out from his hiding
place to run the blockade. ,
The unsuspecting sophomores paid
no attention to a medium sized woman
dressed In black when "she" passed
them on' the hotel sidewalk about 8
o'clock. A moment later, however,
when "she" came under the lights of
the hotel entrance, one of the sophs
rcccgnized the features of Anderson
under the woman's veil.
"It's Anderson!" he yelled, and in
stantly there was confusion.' Anderson
darted quiojtly through 'the. door and
into the hotel lobby. ; The' sight of
a woman dressed in black dashing
through the lobby caused traveling
men, politicians and ; students who
crowded the room to stand back quick
ly and look on with amazement.
Through the path thus cleared for him
Anderson darted up the stairs, end in
an instant he was with his classmates.
These had been acquainted of the ruse
he was trying to work, and when they
caught sight of him they let loose a
cheer. A moment later Anderson hat'
shed his feminine apparel and-appjar-ed
at the balcony, bowing to bewilder
ed and discomfited sophomores who
crowded the lobby beneath.
Soph IwNue Dodger.
Stung by their defeat, the sophs as
a last resort repaired to a printing
shop, where they had the following
flaring poster printed on yellow paper
1 "The Sophomores
hereby announce their utter disgust at
red to banquet hall
2. Freshies vere unable to entertain
the sophomore president.
3. Fresnmen girls compelled to go
4. Freshmen girls compelled to en
ter Harper house through side en
"Be it hereby resolved that the soph
omore class sorely regrets the unmanly
actions of the lower class and that the
freshies are greatly in need of instruc
tion on banqueting."
' Aid la Meantime.
This poster they spread out over the
down town streets of Rock Island and
in the" neighborhood of the college. In
the meantime the freshmen were en
joying themselves at the banquet. Carl
Backman, president of the class, acted
as toastroaeter at the feast, and toasts
were responded to as follows:
"1912" Joseph Sundell.
"Our Colors" G. M. Thlme'.l.
"Pur. Future" Herman Johnson. .
"The Fair Ones" H. W. Linden.
"The Sophomores" Alvin Anderson.
"Alma Mater" C. O. Parsons.
, The banquet was a splendid affair.
plates being set for 35 guests. The
feast consisted of eight courses. 'At
the conclusion of the banquet the
freshmen enjoyed themselves with
games and an impromptu program in
the hotel parlors until the small hours
of the morning. Today the freshies
are greatly elated over their victory,
and the sophs do not deny that they
got the worst of the affair, although
they denounce the methods employed
by the freshies In gaining their point.

Yours for business,
The republicans held a meeting at
the Turner hall last night.. The big
quartet of candidates Stead,, Rose,
Russell and McCuliough were adver
tised to speak, but only two pf the big
four were on hand, and of these Mr.
Stead was the only one to attempt
anything of a speech. Mr. Rose and
Mr. McCuliough evidently concluded
that Rock Island was not worth while,
fcr they left it up to Stead and iRus-
sell to satisfy the committee end the
audience. There was about as lare a
crowd as usual on hand. Hon Wil
liam Jackson presided, and in order to
make up the deficiency in speakers, he
delivered something of an oration him
self. In fact, for a time it appeared
that he would occupy the entire, even
ing and not give even Mr. "Stead a
chance. He became wrapped up in his i

figures or speech, and he fairly over
ran with eloquence about prosperity,
the grand old party, and the rule of the
people. Finally, he came to and intro
duced Mr. Russell, who said that hi3
presence was merely an accident. He
apologized for appearing before the au
dience, explaining that he is a banker
and not a speaker. Then Mr, Stead,
who had been nervously squirming in
his chair waiting for Mr. JacRson to
subside, was introduced. He hustled
to the front of the stage, jerked out a
pile of manuscript about six inches
thick, and waded in. He, too, had au
overstock of figures of speech, and he
poured forth eloquence big words, at
least until he simply ran down.

.. Mr. Stead talked about all of the na
tional issues, admitting a dozen times
over that the republicans hi their 12
years of absolute rule have made nu
merous mistakes, and left undone many
things that should have been done. He
boldly misrepresented the planks of the
democratic platform: An order to give
j basis for argument, and on the subject
I of government by injunction he declar
ed he was not qualified to talk. He
rambled about the tariff, bank deposits,
"trust regulation, the panic of last fall,
the Panama canal, the situation in Chi-
Icago, the number of miles of railway,
the menace of socialism, and finally
launched forth about the state Institu
tions in Illinois, a subject that few re
publicans like to have discussed pub
Of course, Mr. Steed was for De
neen, first, last and all- the time, and
he had the nerve to declare the gov
ernor's administration-of state institu
tions the best" that ever passed Into
history. And he concluded his speech
by making a "stick to the party" talk
to try to holdt the voters in line fof L.

When Deneen was mentioned, Eddie
Sehoede, who had come down . from
Watertown for the occasion, just fair
ly danced with enthusiasm. He more
than earned his salary from the state
with his applause of Governor Deneen
and the complimentary things that Mr.
Stead said of the management of the
state institutions. He had been sit
ting in the back part of the hall, on an
old table, alertly waiting for some one
to mention Deneen so that he might
applaud. But when Mr. Stead had
nearly finished without a word for the
governor, Sehoede could scarcely con
tain himself. But it came at last, and
he almost exhausted himself in his

Dr.. Joseph DeSilva, who has borne

the burden of all of the failures of thi
campaign, spent a peaceful night. He
weut home happy, for, surprising as it
seems, he had found by a count of
noses that there were seven more peo
ple on hand than at any other meeting
of the republican campaign. It did not
matter to him that the seven were wo
men. Nor did he feel any qualms of
conscience because the people had been
attracted to the meeting under false
representations, expecting to hear Mr.
Rose and Mr. McCuliough. He did not
even care if a third of those present
did leave before Mr. Stead had fairly
started his speech. He had managed
to increase his attendance by seven
and that was the "only thing he could
think of. and so it is safe to say that
he passed the first peaceful, quiet
night , of the campaign.
