Make IIIm Kwape.
The struggle did not abate, how
ever, and In an unguarded moment
Backman succeeded In wrenching him
self free from his captors and sprinted,
for the Abrahamson home, pursued by
the sophs. He succeeded in eluding
them and reached the house just as

Frustrate the Attempt of the

and One of Disturbers Gets Hit
With an Egg
Class spirit between the sophomores
and freshmen of August ana college
was suddenly revived last night in a
most startling manner, when Un
learned that E. A. Kallstrom, one of
the freshies, had not yet reached the
scene of the party and redoubled
their vigilance to capture him. Kall
strom, however, was shrewd and
lingered around the place until an ip
DOltunitv tn-esenteil itself tr clii ;n
llu s'pite of the precautions of the
sophs tried to upset the plans of the.
sophs, he finally slipped through the
i lines within three fk-ef of mimp nf tli.i
freshies for holding a class party. The . euar.ls an., 1il,d the inorrv

To complete the humiliation of the
sophs, a mischievous freshie hurled a
, fresh egg at one of the unsuspecting

paity was held at the home of Miss
Agnes Abrahamson, a class member,
living at 4501 Seventh avenue, and the
entire freshman class together with
friends, numbering 2r in all, formed
the merry party.

consideration, thev had not succeeded'
in sufficiently subduing or humiliating
the spirit of the under classmen. Ac
cordingly it was decided that the
freshies must suffer cue final bitter
humiliation at the close of the school
So decided the wise sophs, but the
freshies haven't been going to school
a whole year for nothing, and thev,
tc.o, have learned something. The
freshies noted the suspicious move
ments of the sophs in the neighbor
hood of the Abrahamson re.-idence an 1
immediately adopted precautions 'o
escape th traps laid by their rivals.
Wanifil the PresMeut.
C. E. Backman. the freshman presi
dent, was the special prue coveted
by the "wise ones'" and the avenue
by which he was expected to approach
was closely guarded. Backman did not
start for the scene of the party until
9 o'clock in company with Miss Pearl
Saville. They were discovered by the
sophs when within two blocks of tha
Abrahamson residence, and signals
and cat-calls quickly summoned a hand
of four sturdy sophs to the neighbor
hood. They were four of the strong
est members of the class.
"Cood evening. Mr. Backman." said
one. "we're sorry to detain you."
Without leplying a word, Backman
made a headlong foot ball rush into the
soph line in an attempt to get through.
He stumbled and fell, however, and
immediately the four sophs were upon
him. In the struggle which ensued,
the sovhs attempted to get Backman
on i hi ir shoulders ar.d cany hiin off.
The latter, however, seized a young
