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. He is a performer
.on nearly a'l wind instruments and
lias been chosen leader of the college
band which under his watchful eye
and able direction is making rapid
strides toward success. The members

piled by President M. H. Sexton. 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

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
