Gladys: uAnd and Circo is going to

0 Psyclonia, did you know that tho last
numbers of the Lock wore out? Circo got
them this morning, and is going to distribute
them o Our Chapter during chapol timo. "
Psyolonia: "Did you over show Lavvy
any copies of the Lock, sister?.'
"Gladys: uNo, I haven't yet. Where
is that last year's copy that you usually have
with you, Calypso darling?"
Psyolonia: "The Loch is a bang-up
literary magazine published monthly by Our
Fraternity. It is edited now by Epsilon,
one of our flyest chapters. Hero, Honey,
read Lavender tho monthly letter from Our
Chapter in this number. It don't matter if

Gladys (reads); "Eastern Gamma
Gamma Lambda girls will be glad to know
that 3Iu Chapter is valij.itly holding its
own, and may still boast that its members are
the belles of the University and the darlings

"One of the most prominent events of the
season, and one which aroused high interest
in University circles, occurred on the evening
of February 31, when the palatial mansion
of Calypso Klingenspohr on Packinghouse
Avenue was thrown open to a brilliant gath
ering. The occasion was a leap year party
given by the ladies ofMu Chapter of Gamma
Gamma Lambda to friends and admirers.
The beautiful home of Miss Klingenspohr,
who by the way is one of the most charming
of our society buds, was tastefully decorated,
and the hours from nine to twelve were spent
in the delightful recreations of cords and
dancing, interrupted by the serving of dainty
refreshments, consisting of lemonade and
delicious wafers. The royal prizes were wo?i
by Mr. Gustafson and Miss Cliourke, and
the boobies by Mr. Freshlet and Miss Lytm."1
Psyolonia: "There, Lavender. That's
tho kind of a sorority tho Gamma Gamma
Lamlda is. They aro a mighty stunning
sot. Why, I remember that some of tho
finest jowolry in school was worn by a prom

Isaacstoin, now of Bryn Mawr. Tho Delta
Lambda girls aro awful proud of having a
member specializing now at Loland Stanford,
but my, Robocca Isaacstoin has been at
Bryn Mawr now four years."
Lavender: "Was Robocca Isaacstoin a
Gamma girl ? I have heard of her often
Psyolonia: "Yes, and a daisy, too."
(Insinuatingly) "What would you say,
Lavender, to being a sister to her '( I de
clare I am quite pining to call you 'sister'
myself. Would you join, if I should work
Our Girls for an invitation for. you?"
Lavender: "I would have to write to
my parents first, but I should think it would
bo porfoctly lovely."
Psyolonia and Gladys (embracing her):
"0 do join, do! We could have tho initia
tion at Calypso's house next Saturday. You
cou'sd take the first degree thon anyway!"
Psyolonia: "Groat Scott, but we'll put
her through. Why, when wo initiated Circe
