TIMELY SUGGESTIONS FROM A
(Inspired by observation of the de-
plorable state of affairs actually ex-
isting in the social circles of S. W.
Whereas, it has become painfully
evident that something must be done
to relieve the direful need a using
from the tragic predominance in
numbers of the feminie population
over the masculine element as shown
by existing conditions, be it hereby
suggested as prohib’ rye of sou-, sal-
vation that the aforesa1'’ masculine
element combine and co-operate to
combat the social denlinquineies
(1) By painstakingly dividing the
said feminine population into ten sec-
tions (this may be successfully ac-
complished by alphabetical division
or as to place of residence) .
(2) By assigning each boy to some
particular field of endeavor and la-
bor whereby he may accomplish the
aim of our desire unmolested and in-
(3) By devoting himself charitably
and untireingly to theestablishment of
the friendly and social atmosphere
that will make her life a sourse of
inspiration and happiness to all with
whom, she may come in contact.
He: “Darling, do you think your
father can hear me kiss you?”
Voice: (from under the sofa) “He's
used to it.”
They were standing outside the
front door having a final chat after
his evening call.
He was leaning against the door-
post talking in low, dulcet tones. She
was listening and gazing rapturously
into his eyes.
Suddenly she turned around. The
door had opened; and there, just in-
side, clad in a dressing gown, her
“My1 dear father,” she asked, “What
is the matter?”
Her father ignored the question.
“John,” he said, addressing the
young man, “You know 1 have never
complained about your staying late,
and I’m not going to complain now;
but, for goodness’ sake, stop leaning
against the door-bell. Other people
want to sleep if you don’t.”
The LITERARY DIGEST offers
each week a prize of fifty dollars for
the best argument in compact form
for better salaries for teachers. The
editor of THE REPORTER humbly
submits this bit of pathos:
“What shape Madam, was the
pocketbook you lost?”

The society met with a good pro-
gram Monday 8:30 a. m. After the
program was rendered the Society re-
ceived into the folds of the “best So-
ciety under the sun” one more il-
lustrious member Mr. R. Mathis, ex-
county superintendent, ex-captain,
and several other ex’s, With J. H.
Gregory (best looking married man
in the Normal), R. Mathis (only
Harris-Blair with a mustache), and
L. C. McDonald (the 10(1 per cent
booster) what other Society can ex-
pect any laurels.
The Society' challenged the Chau-
tauquans to an Inter-Society debate
to be given in the auditorium just be-
fore the close of the summer session.
The Chautauquans have not offi-
cially answered the challenge . They
are expecting to answer at a near
Come to see us all you boys—we
need you and you need us.
There is a hearty welcome extend-
edw to you at all meetings.
An unusually interesting program
was rendered by the Chautauqua Lit-
erary Society last Monday morning.
The special feature was a series of
dialect readings rendered by Mr. R.
G. Harrison. After a fashion that
is so characteristic in all his read-
ings, Mr Harrison made his audience
see in turn the serious side, the nat-
ural side, and the extremely humor-
ous nature of twentieth Century life
as pictured in the writings of sev-
eral of the leading poets of today.
Another very worthy and well exe-
cuted number was a cornet-baritone
due ; by Messrs. Snow and Ehlert.
After thi; came the debate, “Re-
solved, that teachers should affiliate
with the American Federation of La-
bor.” In this several Chautauquans
demonstrated their respective orator-
ical and argumentative powers. A
decision of one affirmative and two
negative was given.
During the meeting a delegation
from the Harris-Blair Literary So-
ciety paid their Society’s respects in
th ' fqvm of a challenge to an Inter-
Society debate. This was promptly
accepted by the Chair on the strength
of a motion, that had been previously
passed, giving him the power to ac-
cept any challenge that might be
placed. Another motion was made
unanimous which gives him the right
to select a committee to confer with
a similiar committee from the H. B.
L. S. and to arrange the necssary de-
tails of the debate.
