Victory perched twice last evening
on the champion Cubs in the Com
ivercial Bowling league series. The
t ubs lost the first tilt by a few pins
but "found the range" by the second
frame and whirled through the Inde
pendents for two decisive wins. The
games which were m-ltnessed by a good
crowd of bugs were rolled on the St.
Ju'.ien alleys.
The Maroons forfeited ihe three
games, to the Pretzels which were
scheduled for last evening on the
Harms alleys, owing to the fact that
only several members of the former
warn were present. All of the mem-1
b rs of the Pretzels were in atten

the news all the time The
A geueral boost in the salaries ot
professors of Augustana college was ,
oted at the session of the board of di- j
rectors of the institution late yester- i
day afternoon. All regular professors, j
numbering 12 in all, axe affected by the
crder, which will add $200 annually to
t'ie salaries they are now receiving. .
Prcfessor Jules Mauri tzon, who holds j
the chair in Swedish, was given a j
raise of $300, which places him on an j
equal basis with all the other perma- j
nent professors of the college. i
It has been felt for some time that ,
th instructors in the college have
been underpaid, but the financial i
status of the college has not permit-1
t"d any increase. The resignation of j
Picfessor I. M. Anderson, however, ;
brought the matter to a head, and in '
order to retain the present efficient '
faculty the board decided that a more i
liberal policy was necessary. i
All efforts to agree on a successor
to Professor Anderson at yesterday s ;
session proved fruitless. Although j
five candidates were considered, the
board could not unite on a man. Wheni
adjournment was taken a committee j
composed of Rev. J. Terrell, Rev. Al-j
fred Appell and Dr. A. Johnson, was j
appointed to make a selection and pre-1
sent its recommendation at the next j
n.eeting of the board. Dr. Andreen
was asked to continue the work of in-;
6tmction in the Greek classes.
Professor C. O. Granere, assistant j
librarian, was granted a leave of ab
sence from April 1 to Sept. 1, on ac-1
count of poor health. Other matters!
of a routine nature were disposed of
ar.d the budget for the coming year
was passed. I
Augustana synod may meet in the j
twin cities for its 53rd annual meeting j
in June. This possibility became ap
parent yesterday at the meeting of the i
board of directors of Augustana col
lere, when Dr. L. A. Johnston, presi
dent of the synod, announced that no
invitation for the synodical meeting
had so far fceen received from any con
gregation in the synod. The board of
directors thereupon decided to extend
an invitation to the synod to meet here
in case no other lnviattion is received
in the meantime.
It was generally anticipated that
the synod would meet this year In
Jamestown. N. V. The First Lutheran
church ot that city, however. Is now
engaged in building operations which
may alter its plans. Probability Is that
the 1314 session of the synod will be
held there instead.
If the synod meets here this year
it will be the second time in three
years. The 50th annual Bession of the
synod was held at Augustana college
iii 1910 in connection with the jubilee
celebration. Iast year the synodical
conference was held in Chicago and in
19H it met in Duluth, Minn.
