KREB'S LECTURE FREE TO THE PUBLIC Through error, the morning edition stated that tickets for the Dr. Krebs lecture tomorrow evening "had been placed on sale." The lecture Is free, but admission will be by tickets which can be had for the asking at Went's drug store or the Red Cross phar macy. Two public-spirited organizations The Women's club and the Men's Civio league are spending $75 to secure Dr. Kreb, who will lecture on "City Growth and Expansion". The mem bers of these two organizations will feel amply repaid if the high school hall is rilled by a representative gath ering of the men and women of Mish awaka. Judging by the way tickets have already been taken, it is freely predicted that, weather permitting, this will be the largest civic meeting ever held in Mishawaka. Those who attend will have an op portunity to hear a man of rare at tainments and versatility, as Dr. Krebs has made a success, not only as a medical doctor and specialist, but, also as a university professor, author, advertising man and lecturer.

DESPITE A muss meeting of the students has been called by Principal Sims for 10:3 o'clock this morning at the high school. Members of the Boosters club will be present nnd talks will Iks made. It Is thought that possibly some plan whereby the athletic privi leges will be returned, may be made. Despite the ban placed on athletics by the board of control at the high school, the students may be able to see the men from their school par ticipating in-a football game Satur day afternoon. The management at Wendell Phillips high school, Chicago, has been wired and there is a strong chance that the game will be played. Following the announcement Wed nesday morning that athletics of all kinds were tabooed,' a public sub scription was taken up and about 150 students agreed to pay 25 cents each towards getting the Chicago team here. The men will be taken to the homes of the students for their meals, as a means of keeping down expenses. There was much talk around high school during Wednesday to the ef fect that independent teams would be organized to represent the school this coming winter or until the ban is lifted. The telegram sent to the Chicago school is the flrst step in this direction. A Boosters club was organized by the students Wednesday afternoon. Donald Livengood is president and Everett Leisure, secretary. It is the purpose of the organization to arouse more interest in the affairs of the school. Plans for increasing the In terlude circulation and the sale of athletic tickets were made. Through the two societies, the Euglosslan and Cleosophic, which in clude in their membership every stu dents In the school, the joint meeting Wednesday was possible. These Joint meetings have been suggested as a means through which the pupils would be .able to conduct athletics on an independent basis. A big parade Friday night will be pulled off if the game with the Chi cago team is secured. It is proposed to have as many students as possible march through the business district as a means of advertising the event. The action means the suspension for an indelinite period of the following: All athletics, Including the abandonment of the remainder of the football soiled ulo and the dis banding of the team which has not been defeated this year. Bas ketball, track and baseball will not le taken up during the s as pen -1 on. Tho abandonment of the In terlude', the school paper, after tho Issue of Friday. The discontinuance, of nil class meetings and tlie abandonment of the debating club wlilcli was Just being orgaidzed. Tho abandonment of class par tics, receptions and dances, or chestra, dramatics. The resignations of all student offi cers with the exception of the officers of the Euglossian and Cleosophic lit erary societies were "accepted" im mediately, Principal Sims announced. The two societies saved from the sink ing ship of student privileges have been in existence nearly since tho founding of the school and for this reason the school authorities an nounced they would not allow them to perish for want of support of the present students. Lack of Support. The reason for the wholesale sus pension of privileges assigned by tho principal was a failure on the part of the students to support the various enterprises, and a lack of control or a sense of personal responsibility in the student body. The lack of student leaders was declared by the authori ties to be the main contributing fac tor. There are only a few who can be depended upon for cooperation it was stated. Principal Sims declared that to continue the present policy would be "sublime foolishness" in view of the attitude of the student body. "We will quit trying to run a high school on a college basis while we have, as the developments of the last two months have shown, a body of kindergarteners who are unable to conduct themselves In the manner to be expected of students of high school age." said Mr. Sims. The resolution of the board of con trol was almost unanimous. It Ls said there was but one dissenting vote, that of the president of the athletic association. The board of control is composed of eight members, four of whom are students and tho remainder teachers. The concurrence of tho three student members of the board with the faculty members is taken to indicate that the students leaders are in accord with the authorities In de nouncing so-called "kindergarten tac tics" and lack of support. Among approximately 1000 stu dents in the high school there were only 300 subscriptions to the "Inter lude", and about the same number of athletic tickets admitting to all games of the year were sold, Sims stated to show the lac?, of support. But this failure would not have caused the suspension of the athletics was hardly able to creep thlsshrdluun had it not been for the disregard of regulations of which the principal complained, it was intimated. He prefaced his announcement by re reciting a long list of the infractions which culminated In the sweeping sus pension of privileges. Many Offenses Cliarged. Among other things the students have been guilty of the following of fenses, the principal said: Marring tho furniture in the new building, scratching varnish off desks, breaking inkwels writing love notes on the white walls, loosening arms of audi torium seats. Forging and "faking'' excuses for absences from elas. One for gery was detected iRxiiu-e the student misspelled Ids fa titer's name. like "police roughnecks". Sticking gum in the keyholes Rowdyism, in which the mem bers of the. football team ixirtici pated. tlirowing wet towels in the orrldors, hooting ami yelling and acting as Sims characterized It, of lockers and In the hair of fel low students. Tho girls were the principal offenders in this line it whs said. Insulting teaclicrs when cer tain privileges were not accord cd. One incident when a student a Hod an instructor a "Jig stiff" was cited. Tho student body, having heard ru mors of the crash that was to come, received Principal Pirns' announce ment in absolute silence. Then came a suggestion from Donald Livengood. president of the senior class. He asked if the student body should pass a resolution to amend its ways the suspension would be presented. Sims replied that he was; through with resolutions. Deeds, not words, will co;mt now, he declared. "I like tho suggestion but I don't think it will work," said he. "Let's try to act worthy ihstead of resolv ing." f EIE INTEREST 1 COLFAX STATUE C. B. Stephenson's Suggestion of a Memorial Calls Atten tion to Old Project Which May Now Be Carried Out. In 1898 the present court house was built. In its construction three niches i were made on the north side of the building. They were allowed for the insertion of statues of great men of ; the county or city. These same niches are still uninhabited today. Many people pass the courthouse daily and wonder what the niches are for and if they ever will be occupied. This situation was brought to the attention of South Bend Monday night in an address given by C. B. Stephen son before the Melting Pot at the Commercial Athletic club, and revived interest in the plan for a memorial fund started some years rco for a suitable tribute to Schuyler Colfax. It ! was remembered that at tho time the ! fund was first inaugurated one of the niches in the then new court house was then spoken of as a fitting place for a. statue or bronze bust of the lato vice president of the United States. With the recalling of the memorial fund by Mr. Stephenson tvs revival of the plan may again be on its way. He suggested that the Melting Pot take up the matter and his HUggestion met with hearty approval. Dr. Charles P. Vlckery was appointed to select a committee of five or six per sons to take up the project. Dr. Vickcry said Tuesday that ho expected to name' the committee within a day or two. Now $683 in Fund. How much money would be needed to secure a memorial is a question which would solve itself when once the work of raising it were under way. Charles L. Zigler ls at present In charge of the fund started in 1898. There is now $683 in the fund, includ ing interest. Of this $310.10 w-as rais ed by a lecture given by Gen. Lew Wallace, $120.36 by the schools, while $3 was donated by a lodge. Mr. Zigler said he remembered that at the time the court house was built it wras planned to place in the niches bronze busts of three of South Bend's most noted men. Those mentioned at the time as qualified for a place in the "niche of fame" were Schuyler Col fax, Lathrop M. Taylor and Horatio Chapin. the first banker in South Bend. D LAMMING !LD D NTRACT Injunction, restraining tho coancil from entering into any new contract for municipal lighting without the public first being heard before the etate public utilities commission, and petitions to the commission demand ing such a hearing, are among the considerations taken up by South Bend citizens, and, the adherents of the Citizens' party in particular, at a select meeting held at the office of Chairman Wm. Happ Wednesday. The movement started immediately upon publication of the report Tues day that bids had been opened for renewal of the municipal lighting con tract now held by the Indiana & Michigan Electric Co., but Mayor Elect Pred W. Keller being out of the city now in Battle Creek, Mich., to escape tho onslaught of appoint ment seekers It developed upon City Chairman Happ to take the initiative. Men concerned in the movement say that while It has gone out that the bids are to be considered at a meeting next Tuesday night, it is planned to call a hurried special meet ing some night this week, and exectite the contract forthwith before the forthcoming citizens' administration could get into power. If they can find enough law to sub stantiate their position in these par ticulars, injunction proceedings may be instituted in the circuit or superor court probably Thursday, while peti tions directed to the council and utili ties commission were placed in cir culation Wednesday. Atty. E. M. Morris, who acted as secretary of the citizens' movement, is in charge of the legal investiga tion, while the petitions emanated from ihe office of Chairman Happ. Mayor Answers Critics. "There is nothing in that talk of a secret meeting,' said Mayer Goetz. "This matter will be taken up by the council and the board next Tuesday night and the lower bid will be de cided on and at the next meeting the Monday after, the thing will be passed. "When I went into office I was ap proached by Mr. Bryan who pointed out that if the city could award a contract for ten years more the com pany could quote a lower figure and save from $12,000 to $15,000 during my administration. Tho matter, was referred to the city attorney and the company was told that It would be impossible to do so, as the contract had four more years to run. "For two years we have been gath ering statistics on street lighting. A year ago on Nov. 8 we advertised for bids, hoping to receive quotations from several concerns, although the entrance of another company would necessitate the construction of an other plant. As a Result of our ef forts we have obtained only the bids of the local electric company and the Wellsb.ich gas people, quoting on gas lighting. "I think when the business is set tled South Bend will have lighting just a; cheap as any, and cheaper than some cities in the country". TRY NEWS-TIMES WANT ADS TERESTI MEN AT Y. M. BANQUET ! Genera!
