The Greeks -wish to bring together

The toasts will be limited to ten
minutes each. Tho subject matter of
each speech will be of vital interest
to every man in the university and it
will be put forth in a manner mai

At this vital moment in the affairs

doubt that Governor Shallenberger
will say something that every person
interested In the university will bo

It will ho interesting matter that
the chancollor will have to speak on

Ho Is riot a fraternity man himself,

' past year, and ho will say things that
ought to bo hoard by every fraternity
W. E. Hardy, who is to he the toast
master, is an alumnus of sigma Chi,
and is one of tho most active alumni
fraternity men in this section of tho
country. Ho is "next" to the affairs
of tho Greeks in this school. Ho has
a message from the fraternities that
will contain several meaty bones. He
takes the broad view of fraternity life.
Dr. Lees Has a Good, Word.
Dr, Lees, whose faithful work in tho
interfratornlty council has made him a
popular man with every one whom ho
has had dealings, will have just a few
tilings to say, but ho wTil put thorn
forth in a sincere manner. Ho has
"been a, father to the Greeks' of tills
school, and his words will bo accepted
by tho fraternity men as though they
were uttered by parents. ' v
Superintendent Stephens, Phi Delta
Theta, will tell a few stories regard
ing fraternities of the universities.
He lias some ideas about h'lgh seliool
fraternities that will be worth hear

He is funny to look at, but to hear he
is simply Irreslstable.
Several comedy "stunts" have been
arranged to make the evening a joy
ous one. There will be songs of all
kinds popular, university and oper
atic. There are going to be some
good Jokes on somebody, too. The
joke makers will spare no one; nobody

April 13.
The fraternity men who are in
charge of the banquet will be pleased
to have any suggestions that may be
offered In conducting the affair. Two
committees have been appointed by
the Greeks. "Hap" Haliigan is In
