Tuesday evening at 9:30, the Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Dumb-
belles met at H. McCabe's sweet 4-i,
Dismal Heights. During the program

Aid Society Organized
A number of young folks met with
Miss Patricia Judge and organized the
Lemon-aid Society. Covers were laid
for an even dozen Lemons. Among
the most prominent were : Miss Pauline
Lessin, Jennie Fitzpatrick, Mrs. V.
O'Neil and Josephine McCarthy.
The Basket Ball League was organized during the winter months. The
league was organized for the purpose
of shooting baskets. As we go to press
we have heard of no shot or even half
shot receptacles. Owing to the shape
of the court all members of the league
played on the square. It goes without
saying (the truth) that the season was
very successful.
Nuptials Announced
The approaching marriage of Miss
Classical Music, of New York, Chicago, etc., to Mr. Emmet Crowley, of
Davenport, Iowa, was announced at
the first annual meeting of the Lemon-
Aid Society. The bride, although a bit
ancient, is very well known and very
popular in the exclusive circles of the
United States, and it was only by the
means of constant attention and ardent
devotion that Mr. Crowley was able to
win the fair hand. Although it is quite
contrary to form, the friends of Mr.
Crowley will endeavor to show the
high esteem in which they hold him by
giving him a prenuptial shower in the
gymnasium, whenever it is convenient
to the janitor.
Informal Held
The President of the college held an
informal reception in his room for two
young students, at eight o'clock Tuesday morning, January 15. The two
young men were brought into prominence by arriving at the morning
chapel exercise after the doors had been
closed. After the customary program,
the visitors were given reminders of
the occurrence.
