THE. ARGUS. SATURDAY. MAY 15, 1909.
9 WANTED THE PRESIDENT 'the Abrahamson home, could summon' J a rescue party of freshies. 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 the freshmen rescue party was start ing out. I Chagrined by their failure, the sophs Effort to Capture Executive Fails, 1 lingered in the neighborhood, trying to capture some other freshie. They FRESHIES VICTORS Frustrate the Attempt of the College Sophs to Break Up a Class Party. 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.

To complete the humiliation of the sophs, a mischievous freshie hurled a , fresh egg at one of the unsuspecting , (soph guards, generously spattering 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. ine sopns goi worn o, nv... .,lim wh the oontents Thpy ijng(,1Vll plans early in the evening and an in- amuIU, tne neignboruoou however in formal meeting of the sophs was hur- , I)(llIisount moja V, thp rhdiy called to decide on a plan of-coo,ei, tht.,p antT anJ drove thpm action. After arguing pro and con.away The freshies, however, remain- tne wise sopns uec nu cl mat. idkiug me u, , , ing enjoying the well earned victory over their rivals events of the whole school year in!o 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 year. 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 five and he'd on for dar life until Miss Saville, who had hurried on o SOCIAL AFFAIRS I (Society news, written or telephone.! to the society editor of The Argus, will be Kbelly received and published.

WHY The grains ur.ed in the dis tillation of W. II. McBray er's Cedar Brook are espec ially selected with great care by experts who have made distilling a life study.
