MYSTIC FISH INITIATES
FIFTEEN WEDNESDAY NIGHT
Sophomore Girls Have Terrible Time
of Their Progress in
Wednesday night fifteen trembling
freshmen co-eds were initiated into
the Mystic Fish. Thursday morning
there were fifteen vacant seats in
freshmen classes. Tho connection is
obvious. Just what occured we have
not been able to ascertain.
The initiation was confined to the
Alpha O house, thus cheating tho In
terested public out of the pleasure of
seeing the girls roll pennies up O
street witli their noses, or of watching
them scrub tho solemn cherubs in the
Thompson fountain with tootli brushes.
The usual stunts were gone through,
including a little stroll through rice
and lly paper, and refreshments of
raw eggs and oysters freely sprinkled
with red pepper.
The girls initiated were: Helen
Scott, Henrietta Doland, Lottie Un
land, Reglna Powers, Hetty Doyle,
Ruth Whitmore, Hermlne Hatfield, Loa
Howard, Grace Hrande, Marguerite
Brldenbaugh, Mildred Ruskin, Edna
Pegler, Ethel Store.

J. H. Boetcker of tho National Inside
Association of America will speak on

to Succeed as a Man." This man has
been secured through the efforts of
the Y. M. C. A. working in connection
with some of the business men. The

nature and every young man can
blame only himself if he fails to at
tend. Sunday afternoon, December 14th,

would save Ills life. Professor Clapp
has been unable to do any work for
three weeks, and now he will 'un
doubtedly no bo able to report at ills

The success that tho production of
tiie play "All of a Sudden Peggy" mot

the theater at that place to request
that tho club produce another play

that vehicle mastered and ready for
production the club has decided to
present that play there. The same
cast that handled the play before the

filling the dates during vacations.
