women are entertained at tho chapter
houso until after the Easter recess,
and this action is to bo published in

Tho enrly activity in tho senior

Whether or not other candidates aro

out that tho laws and academics aro
oxtromely unlikely to willingly allow
tho engineers to havo the pio all to

In tho other clnsses ovorythlng is
quiet as yet. Tho freshmen are said
to bo in shapo for a neat little squab
