7 i r MANY CHANGES . SEEN AT COLLEGE Member of New Faces in Fzculty tor 1 e m That Has Just Opened. A STRONG TEACHING STAFF Prof. Maurttzson Takes Scandinavian Chair After Two Years' Study in Sweden. If a last year's graduate should visit 'Augustana college today he would be Knatly surprised at the many new fa;es In the college faculty. In fact great changes have taken place in this august body, but on account of the kc thing activity at the institution aV.ng all lines the extent of the Rain and loss is remarked only on after thought. Prof. Mauritzson. who dur Ing his two-year stay in Sweden at various universities, studied to perfect himself in the Swedish language, is now filling the chair in Scandinavian languages. The chair was filled rnnji ab'y during his absence by . Wahl berg, who i:- now specializing in French at Yale, where he expects te take his degree Prof. Kiln Hrtnrt. Miss Mertz. of Rok Island, who dur Ing the laft twi years taught tht mighty language of the old Romans, has vacated in favor of Prof. Kling. who is now back from Yale where he has iiit the finis'.rng touches to his mastery of Latin. Prof. L M. Anderson, the successor if Dr. A. O. Brrsell. has already won over the students through his pleasing personality and the very interesting manner with which he imparts his kiiowlf lge of the beautiful musical language of ancient Hellas. The gn ral verdict is that "lie can't be beat," and it is generally appreciated that the colli de l:as male a notable aecpii-t-'it'nn. The acceptance of a call to a pas torate in Burlington by Prof. Soder grcn left the chair of Christianity va ant, and a call was issued to the Rev. J C. Dahlbcrg who now fills the chair in a most satisfactory manner. IVrtoriiw on All Wlml lnt rtimrntn. Prof. ( )ehlschlagel of the conserva tory department is another prominent addition. He has studied with the world famous violinist, Joachim, and demonstrates by his playing that he has appropriated some of the traits of this great master.

In individual batting Leslie, of Sioux City, leads with a percentage of 375. but he participated in only 31 games. Con galton, of Colorado Springs, who was in 12S games, is next with 327. Gra ham, the former Rock Island player, has an average of 27G for 12S games. White, of Denver, leads the first base men with 9S9 for 55 games. Conery. of Des Moines, is next with 9S7 for 143 games. Hallman. of Denver, heads the second basemen, with 904 for 139 games. Schiebeck, of St. Joe, heads the third basemen. His average is 936 for 124 games. Of the shortstops.

Omaha. leads the pitchers, with a winning per cent of .714 in 28 games. His fielding average is S57. Mr. Sexton, speaking of his purpose to bring before the meeting of the Na tional board of arbitration at New York the reported attempt of the Rock- ford association to disrupt the Three Eye league because of its dismissal. said this morning that one of the chief functions of the national association was to protect the leagues scattered" over the country of which it was com posed. "The people of Roekford who take a common sense view of the ac tion of the Three-Eye league cannot help but admit that the move was forced by reason of the poor patron- nge of the games played in that city.' Mr. Sexton said. "There was no oth er Grievance asrainst Roekford. Six of the cities voted for the change. It had to be made. The national asso ciation will sustain our action. I am satisfied, and if the fans of Roekford know what is best for them, fhey will take their medicine in sportsmanlike fashion." Annual Meeting Called. A call has been issued for the annual meeting of the stockholders of the Rock Island club next Tuesday even 'ng. Reports for the year will be road the new park plans and next year's campaign will be discussed and officers to serve next season elected.
