Rev. Foreman Speaks In
Student Chapel Saturday
Rev. Blonyno Foreman a member
of tho Simmons graduating class of
'23 and a missionary to Brazil de-
livered the address at tho chapel per-
iod Saturday January 4.
In his address Rev. Foreman stress-
ed the need of hospital and the money
necessary to build this structure also
tho need of an orphans home with
which to take caro of the homeless
and needy children. He described the
horrible living conditions of tho Bra-
zilians and their need to learn of
only legal loop-holo is bethrothal to
another which is accepted as unrea-
sonable refusal. Otherwise according
to leap year common law ho must buy
the young lady a gown nnd it must
bo an expensive one. This is her in-
defeasible right growing out of the
leap year custom.
A legend with Saint Patrick in the
leading role gives the origin of the
leap year business. It is said that
Saint Bridget camo to Patrick in be-
half of her nunnery whero tho nuns
strangely enough had mutinied. Saint
Patrick finally conceded them one in
seven years but Bridget threw her
arms about his neck and cried
"Arrnh Payrick Jewel I dawrn't go
back to tho girls with such a proposal.
Make it one year in four." Needless
to say Saint Patrick complied.
Tho Scottish Parliament by an or-
dination as far back as 1228 gave a
somewhat legal tone to this particular
custom. It fails' to show in the
