hiilOCO MANAGEMENT ASK&
THE CO-OPEIUTION OF ALL
" Tho Bronco Management asks tho
co-operation of ovory member of tho
faculty and studont body in collecting
tho dues on th eongravlng. Every In-
dividual class .society club and or-
ganization which Is represented in tho
Dronco owes a fee for this work. It
It not tho paymont for spaco in tho An-
nual but tho payment for tho engraved
plato which Is necessary to -print tho
picture. Theso bills aro really not of
' our making' but wo are merely acting
os your agents to tho Engraving- Com-
pany. However wo havo. vouched for
your Integrity and it you do not pay
your prp rata part of this engraving
tho Bronco Management will have to
stand good for you. It is merely a
question of whether you aro going to
pay your bills or whether you aro go-
ing to ask us to pay them for yin.
Now of course wo know that you will
not call upon us to bear this additional
burden but somol organization aro
.likely to bo negligent in making settle-
ment. These bills are already due and
. wo aro going to ask that you sea tho
Business Manager immediately.
Germany hasn't anything on Mary-
Frances theso days. Tho war spirit
is being felt even in this Christian
Institution but at tho close of tho con-
ference which was called by "Hla Ex-
celloncy".a pcaco truce was made and
tho ''war" ended as suddenly as it be-
gan. Tho only-noticeable. result of all
this was tho oxoltement of tho campus
on tho "morning after tho night be-
fore" and tho silent returning of many
articles ilnt had been borrowed. At
any rato bath tub warfaro has in days
past served tho sam6 purpose now
served by machlno guns but as wo
remarked those days havo passed.
