A Last Wednesday night the college gymnasium narrowly escaped de struction by fire. Shortly after 10 o'clock the alarm was given and students rushing to the building found it filled with smoke. The tire was in the northeast corner on the first floor, but the smoke coming through the upper floor gave the impression that the fire was in the commandant's office. The stream from the fire hose was poured into the upper rooms for some time before the real location of the fire was discovered. When found, the Barnes were quickly extinguished. The floor and walls of the northeast room were burned out and the wo men's dressing room adjoining was badly scorched.
