to gather at the studio at 6:30 a. m.,
when the first setting was taken. The

party was allowed to retain the cap
and was Instructed to keep the same

more thoughtless in the class allowed
the plans to leak out and the Sopho

about their clothing. The Sophomores
succoeded In securing one cap in this
manner:- The crowd dispersed about
