The Hesperian is indebted to Hoscoc Pound for
the report of the football game between the state uni

heartiest, or at least the most practical assistance yet
rendered was the offer of the musical department to
give a musical concert for the benefit of the associa

astically accepted, and elaborate arrangements are
being made for the recital. Mr. and Mrs. Mcnzen
