THE RESOLUTIONS AT AMHERST.

The Amherst faculty has not yet decided what action to take in regard to the resolutions recently drawn up by the Inter-collegiate Conference on Athletics in New York. It is probable, however, that the subject will be referred either to the Senate or Baseball Association, and that the faculty will act according to the desire of the students. The subject has created quite an excitement among the students, and their opinions seem to be evenly divided as to whether Amherst should adopt the resolutions or not.

Junior Theme V. will be due on Thursday, February 28. Subject: An exposition of some subject connected with the chief study of each student.

The BaseBall Association, which includes Rutgers, Lafayette, and Stevens, have arranged their schedule of games. It is hoped that New York University, Seton, St. John's, Manhattan, and the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn will join before the season opens.

Perry. Belmont, one of Harvard's favorite sons, has again been bearding a Congressional lion in his den. Very melodramatic accounts are given in the newspapers of a recent tilt between Mr. Belmont and A. S. Hewitt in the Foreign Affairs Committee room.

A peculiarity of this year's training by the Cambridge University crews is, that after several weeks of rowing on the river it hauls up its boats for a rest of two weeks. This was done about the end of January, and now it is again rowing regularly, as the race comes in April.

It is proposed to resuscitate the Phi Bita Kappa Society of Yale College. The membership, if the plan succeeds, is to consist of one from each class who obtains a philosophical or high oration in the junior appointments. There is considerable opposition to the scheme among the anti-society men.
