Y. W. C. A.
The Y. W. C. A. met last Wednesday
afternoon at four o'clock. We had a
very interesting program which con-
sisted of talks on "How Attendance
will help our Y. W. C. A." by Miss
McChristy. "The Girl and Personal
Service" by Miss Macdgcn. "What
Kind of Program we Should Have"
by Miss Glover and an open discussion
on "How We can Eacli Help the Y. W.

We took in five new members and

We give an invitation and heartily
urge all the girls in the college to come
and join our Association and we will
give you something to do. We need
you and you need us. No girl can af-

that you do not get in any of your
other work. You may think that you
can't spare the hour every Wednesday
that your time is needed on your les-
sons. You will forget the things you
learn in books in time but some of the
things you get in Y. W. C. A. will go
with you nil through life. Let me urge
you again to come and put your whole
soul in this work and let us try and
make this the best year for our Y. W.

Six Young Men
In 1808 six young men students of
William's College at Williamstown
Mass. formed the first Missionary Or-
ganization in America. They met by
night for prayer under a haystack near
the college grounds. There they con-
secrated themselves to the cause of
missions. A monument has been er-
ected at that place to comemrate their
Marriage in Japan has no religious
significance and is legalized by a sim-
ple record of the fact at the proper of-
fice. It is an arrangement made by
parents or other agents in which the
principal actors are expected to acqui-
esce. After the betrothal presents of
clothing fish and edible sea-weeds are
exchanged. It is a serious breach of
properity to consider breaking the en-
gagement. The ceremony may be
more or less elaborate but in its sim-
plest form consists of the drinking to-
gether by the young couple of nine
cups of wine and in a significant
change of clothing. The bride appears
first in a white dress as one who dies
to her own family and the house is
swept out after she leaves in order to
purify it as after the presence of a
corpse. When she reaches her new
home she puts on one of her dresses
given her by her husband. The cere-
mony ends with a final cup of wine
which is always offered first to the
husband as the master. In the ease
with which divorce and consequent re-
lease from unbearable conditions may
now be obtained the old custom of the

J. S. H. SOCIETY
All the members of the J. S. H.
Society feel that the outlook this year
is more promising than it has ever
been in the past the year started with
more enthusiasm and interest in soc-
iety work than have ever been mani-
fested heretofore. Girls who have nev-
er taken an active part arc waking up
to the fact that only real work in the
cause counts for anything. Either to
themselves or to those with whom they

of several charter members girls who
have been here for several years and
who have worked continually with the
interest of the J. S. H's. uppermost in
their minds. But other girls have
been raised up to take their places;
and with the twenty-one new members
gained since the opening of this school
year who are already taking hold of
the work with the vigor and deter-
mination of veterans the society
knows it has no reason to fear for the
ultimate success of the work this year.
The programs given during this ses-
sion have been of a nature and var-
iety to interest everyone. In the open
session given during the first week of
the term the J. S. H's. with their
brothers the Theophilians gave a
typical program illustrating splendid-
ly the character of work done by both
societies in practically every meeting
In the J. S. H society one weekly pro-
gram was in honor of the new girls;
one was given especially for the fool
ball boys; still another was a tribute
to their noble brothers. And in each
and every meeting the purpose is the
same that of putting into practice in
the society the knowledge gained in all
the other phases of College life.

significance as has also the custom of
dressing the bride in white.

The Theodoric Literary Society has
begun this year's work with the best
of prospects. Much interest is being
shown in the weekly meetings and the
new boys we have received are enter-
ing into their work with earnestness
Several old members with the har-
ness marks of other years on them
are with us and we feel that they will
help ub very materially.
Theodoric extends an invitation to
all new boys who have not yet lined up
with either Theodorics or Theophilians
to visit us in our regular meetings. No
boy can afford to miss the good which
literary society work gives. He will
miss the richest and most invigorating
part of his literary development if he
fails to join one of the boy's societies.
Theodoric would like to help you
in your society woik. Come and visit
us and see what we have to offer.

During the opening week of H. P. C.
the Irving and Thcodric Societies en-
tertained in honor of the faculty and
new students. The entertainment took
the form of a Campus Party. Piano
and Violin music was furnished by
Irving girls. The little lights showed

such real enjoyment is hard to imitate.
Misses Lindsey and McCauley served
a smile with each cup of punch. Late
in the evening ice cream was served
and a very enjoyable evening was
The first regular meeting was for
business. Officers were elected as fol-
lows: Ethel Ncal President; Iris Mc-
Curdy Vice-President; Myrtle Burk
Secretary. A set of active officers was
elected and each one has been discharg-
ing her full duty.
At the next meeting the Irving Soc-
iety had with them the new students
a program which will be remembered
long was very successfully carried out.
Twelve new members were taken into
We have had three programs by the
Society and very credible programs
they have been. There has been good
attendance and with one or two excep-
tions every member on the program has
been present to do her part. This
speaks for the loyalty of the Irving
At our last meeting we had with us
the J. S. H. girls. Miss Sims talked
rather than lectured about her trip to
the Exposition and her summer in
California. She told us of the wond-
ers of the Grand Canyon the mystery
of the Arizona desert the charm of
Santa Barbara. She told us of the
great western ocean of the enormity
and beauty of the Exposition-all about
delightful California and her work at
Berkly. This was one of the greatest
days for the Irving Society.
Thus in the first four weeks of the
year the Irving Society has already
accomplished much that is worth
while. We have some new members who
are going to cause people to "sit up
and take notice." "To be rather than
to seem" is our ambition. New girls

ment. The Howard Payne boys went on the
field full of pep and fight and they
kept it up throughout the game. The
first guarter opened the eyes of the
fans and revealed to the Bay-
lirites that the "Yellow Jackets" had
stingers and were not drones.
The first half was up and there was
The second half was a harder fight
than the first. Once the ball was dan-
gerously close to H. P. C's. goal line
but the line held for downs.
Here it was that Captain Lewis went
through Baylor's line and tackled a
man for a five yeard loss.
In the last quarter Baylor having
found out that they could not make
a touchdown sent in their place kick-
er. The ball was worked down within
twenty yards of H. P. C's. goal when
Baylor pulled off a successful
place kick. The game ended 3 to 0 in
favor of Baylor.
This score was a surprise to many

have had for many years. They ex-
pected the score to be not less than 80

hasty decision. Much thought and
planning has been given this matter
and we feel that we have acted wisely.
However some things were considered
which are yet to be worked out. The
most important one we believe is that
