CAPTORS WANT AXE RETAINED

Keep the axe as a perpetual and cherished Stanford emblem.

This is the desire of the valiant band of Cardinal stalwarts who braved the fury of the Berkeley's thousands last Thursday night and stole the precious treasure from beneath the very snouts of the bewildered Golden Bears.

At a secret meeting held last night in Sequoia Hall the dauntless "twenty-one" considered various suggestions concerning the future of the axe.

It is the desire of the "Twenty-one" to bring out the axe at least once a year. They do not want it secreted away forever in a hidden vault. These were the important developments of the meeting last night.

Tomorrow the twenty-one axe captors will be feted at a special luncheon given for them in the Palace Hotel by the Stanford Alumni Club of San Francisco.

It is the desire of the group to get alumni advice concerning disposition of the axe. Final opinion by the group of captors will not be released until such advice has been obtained.

Today the axe will be turned over to Eric Hill, Bob Loofbourow, and Don Kropp. It was placed in the vaults of the American Trust Company at Palo Alto Friday under the signature of three members of the Board of Athletic Control. Today's transfer will be merely a matter of signatures. The axe will not be disturbed from its stronghold resting place.

Consideration of the axe question will be taken up at tonight's meeting of the Executive Committee.
