And all get out and cheer.

The girls will try athletically
To set some record marks.
The Sphinx and Spikes will then cross
And play a game of ball;

Will feel most awful lost
When all the rest go out to play
"Now, fellahs, come acrost."

Disappointed. " ;
last Saturday, tho Senior Hop ' was
postponed. The hop waB first post
poned until noxt Friday night, but on
account ot Engineers' Night it has
Binco been changed to Saturday, May
9. Nice weather had prevailed all last
week until Saturday morning when It
began to rain, which was at exactly
tho wrong time. Although the- rain .
was not heavy, it .would' h'ayo been
sufficient to spoil an otherwise good
dance. Not long after this action the
rain stopped and the day turned out
very well. This was rather disgusting,
but not being, weather prophets, the
committee was unable to foresee this. '
Yesterday Glen Tunks was notified by
Miss Graham that Friday night is En
gineers' Nlght. For1 this reason the
date of, the dance" must be again post-'
poned- and tho date has .been finally
set for Saturday night, May- 9, - .
