On Wednesday evening, January 13, the members of the
elective German class were very generously entertained ly
Professor Fosler and wife at their home on Twenty-fourth
and V streets. Much to the regret of the professor and wife
two members were unable to he present. The time was passed
in looking over a fine collection of photographs, discussing
quotations from Faust and partaking of refreshments.
A few improvements were made about the main building
during vacation. The Christian association properly lettered
their bulletin board, lined it with velveteen and put up a new
board opposite the Lasso bulletin. The chancellor had a
loartl put up for his own notices, and the Lasso people made
their board less conspicuous and the hall more pleasing to
the eye by setting it on the dooi.
The art exhibit given in the Grant memorial hall by the
Haydon Art Club was well attended and highly appreciated
b the students. "The Russian Beauty," "The Hehcading of

display.. "The Last Days ol Mozart" was, of course, the
principal attraction. The students lcel duly grateful to those
who were in charge of the exhibit foi the complimentary
tickets that were furnished them.

attending; they should take advantage of the facilities oflcrcd
by the State Historical Society.

"No, but you have two great fears," observed the Sun,

As one short phrase will show.
I sat one ev; with Maude, a miss
Who's prettv, sweet and coy:
Said I, "Mau&c, dare I steal a kiss?"
She said, "You silly boy."
And in a little while I said.
Art angry, dear, at me?"
She laughed tmd then she shook her head,
"You silly boy," said she. Cornell Era.
"Sweet maid," I said, one summer's day,
"One question I would ask thee, pray:
If a 'Varsity boy should gaily woo.
Should tell you his heart was loyal and true.
In such an emergency what would you do?"
"Kind sir," she said, with a winning smile,
That Irom the heart did all care beguile,
"If the 'Varsity boy should gaily woo,
If indeed his heart was loyal and true,
Then to do, I think, exactly what's right,
I should simply say, 'you're out of sight.' "
