Y. W. C. A. CANDLE SERVICE
Instead of meeting at the regular
time Friday afternoon the Y. W. C.
A. Postponed its program until 7:30
that evening so that the beauty of^he
dusk hour would lend enchantment
to this otherwise beautiful service.
The Candle Service is for the recog-
nition of new members.
At 'the end of the membership
drive put on recently somewhere
about ninety members were reported.
A large part of this number took
part in the service. Friday evening
They were met at the door by ushers
and during the seating and gather-
ing of the crowd, soft music at the
piano was rendered by the pianist.
The only light in the room was

After a song, “Day is Dying in
the West,” and a prayer, Miss Mary
Patrick rendered a very beautiful
violin selection. Then the new mem-
bt rs marched to the front of the
room where the president, Miss
Winnifred Thalman, stood, lighting
their small candles from the large

vhey then formed two semicircles
facing the audience and were led in
a Responsive Reading by the presi-
cl nt. Aft^r a prayer they returned
c > their seats. Miss Kerchner then
gave a very interesting talk, rendered
more appropriate to the surroundings
by the soft tones and by the sub-
dued light of the candles. The ser-
vice closed with a song.
We feel sure that ever$ girl who
attended this impressive ceremony
received an inspiration and has a
more vivid impression of what it
means to belong to such a Christian
mganization as the Y.W.C.A.

THE NEWMAN CLUB
The Catholic Newman club was or-
ganized Sunday, June 19. The fol-
lowing officers were elected for the
summer term: president, Pete Fol-
gelle; Vice-president, Joseph Braden;
Secretary, Annie Callus; Treasurer,
Lylia Kelley; press reporter, Julia
Stanina; program committee, Ida
Rose Kelley, Teressa Kavanaugh, and
Mr. Russek. The Newman club has
a quite large membership. It has
enrolled thriyt eight members and
more are expected to join. There
have been various suggestions made
a,s to what form our social shall be
which we shall want. So everybody
come and help us decide at our next,
meeting which will be held next
Sunday, July 17, at 8 p. m.
Last Monday morning the H. B. L.
S. met in regular session and had
their usual snappy program. There
was a very entertaining song given Dy
the Harris-Blair Quartet. The fea-
ture of the song was that it was sung
by a quartet that was got • up on
very short notice. Then came the de-
bate. As three of the participants
were absent, the other one gave his
speech and was answered by Mr.
Giick, who made a very interesting
talk on the question: Resolved that
the honor system should be establisn-
ed in the Normal. Mr. Jones, Su-
perintendent of Kingsville schools and
president of the Harris-Blair in 1910,
gave us a very interesting talk on
the speeches of Simms and Harvey.
We feel that Mr. Jones is a very able
i) an on present day politics. He has
made it his study. Mr. Jones owns
s. large interest in one of the local
papers, the San Marcos Record.
The society then decided to chal-
lenge the Chautauqua for a debate
and a committee was appointed and
sent to confer with the Chautauqua
Society. We hope that the Chautau-
qua will accept this challenge in
order that we may have the debate.
Young men of the Normal, remem-
ber that the Harris-Blair is one of
the livest societies on the hill and so
come up and join us in room 14. We
will be heard from before many
days for we are going ta have a so-
cial in the near future. If you join
at once you will not oe too late to
participate in it. Ask the girls if the
Harris-Blair is not the best society on
