SOKE SPEECHES OF RARE WIANft SPICE
After CleaingUp he Bountiful Feast
Prepared, the Class Broke Loose in
a Volley of Pistol Shots and Yells
That Terrorized the Campus
Meeting for the first time at a
banquet, the class of 1914 Friday
night assembled,sixty-nve strong,
and more than did justice to the
bountiful food prepared. It was
a grand time for the Sophomores
Spurred on by exhortations from
the speakers, all of whom
fairly stumbled over themselves
in their eagerness to explain how
glorious, how responsible, and
how critical, a time the soph year
was, class feeling mounted high
er and higher until it reached its
climax in a volley of pistol shots,
blood cuidling yells, and ,a bond
fire that scared every; .Freshman
off the campus.
The .banquet was a ; distinct
success. The master hand of
Marse Jesse, king of , banquet
servers, was everywhere' seen in
the excellent food and service.
The speakers were at their best
and all of them presented speeches
full of sound advice and rare wit.
C. E. Blackstock, president of
the class, who acted as toast-
master, started things off with an
explanation, of the purposes of a
class banquet and more partial
larly of a soph banquet. , Prof.
Collier Cobb was the first regular
speaker. , He told entertainingly
of his experiences as a young in
structor .in. the University and
compared present customs with
those of former ' times. J. P
Burke responded to him with a
discussion of 'The Freshman" in
which he told of the woes of that
Dr. Archibald Henderson re
lated some of -his impressions and
experiences in Europe. - He spoke
of the- ideas that Europeans have
of Americans, that America was
thought-of as a country of iro
; vincial ism, o f , , corrupt po! i t ics,
and of millionaires. In telling
of the high opinions with which
some - individual Americans, were
regarded, he spoke of, the, honor
and respect paid to Dr. C. Al
phonso Smith; - His own beliefs
regarding... America .,, were, Dr.
Henderson, said; quite dif
ferent, lie closed with a tribute
to the genial nature and kindness
of Americans.;, Dr- Henderson
spoke in an exceptionally enter
taining manner and his speech
as received ' enthusiastically.
! 1 R.SfStrayhorn; j in ;u response,
dwelt on .','The Sophomore" and
the ideals he "should pursue -to
reach his highest development.
Dr. Booker, the "sine qua non"
of a soph banquet, spoke in his
own -bright manner r of., the , dif
ferences between the sentiment at
different colleges and of the ways
to maintain the best sentiment

Woodrow Wilson as First

, Respective Parties. Only One Suf

an 1. Such was the result of a
total of 492 votes cast at the
election last Thursday,
The election was aj' great suc
cess. From the time the polls
were opened at 9:45 a. m. " until
they closed at 4:00 p. m. Stu
dents and faculty alike were busy
in exercising their rights as citi
zens of the college; community.
At the faculty prepint in the
Bursar's office 35 members of the
faculty voted. Six more voted at
the general polling place in the
Y. M. C. A. Of tU. students
452 voted. There is only one
suffragette in college! ! She, how
ever, represents 50 percent of the
co-eds in the University. Besides
this, she showed her ability, to
discriminate among the many
candidates, and her right to have
the privilege of equal suffrage,
by voting the leading . ticket:
Wilson, first choice; Underwood,
! The Democrats beat the Grand
Old Party, both its progressive
and its conservative wings, and
its La Follette insurgency, "to
a frazzle." Their majority over
the Republicans was 332. - As
first choice Woodrow Wilson, of
course, led the Democratic ticket.
He received 84.9 per cent, of the
total Democratic vote. At the
faculty precint Wilson received
4 times as many votes lor nrst
choice as the other candidates
combined. The vote at the
Bursar's office stood: Wilson 28;
Underwood 2; Harmon 2; Taft 1;
Roosevelt 2; Clark 0; La Follette
0; Debs 0. Although Wilson's
majority among the students was
not as great, it ' nevertheless was
overwhelming. The Democratic
vote among , the students; was:
Wilson 322; Underwood 35; -Har
mon 19; Clark 2.
Of the Republican candidates
Theodore Roosevelt led the ticket
among the students. He received
55 votes: Taft 20: and La Follette
2 for first-choice. The dread of
a third term seemed to have but
little effect on the students. Not
only were 55 votes cast for the
hero of San Juan Hill, Darkest
Africa, etc. etc. as first choice
but also 33 votes were cast for
lim as s second choice. 25 men
who voted for Woodrow Wilson
as first choice voted for Roose
velt as second choice. 11 men
voted for Roosevelt first; Wilson
second. In the faculty Roosevelt
received 2 votes, Taft 1; La

WITH BASEBALL PRACTICE
A Forecast of the Lineup jn , Friday's Came
With Oak Ridge, Insti-.;
