Those recoiving medals were John J ). llastic,

The Pershing Rifles drilled part of the time
on the south campus and part of the time in
the armory. Considering the cold weather
and the slippery ground they did exceedingly
well. When they drilled on the familiar arm
ory lloor their work was better than expected
by the most enthusiastic. On the campus the
drill -was in both normal and extended order
with one battle exercise; indoors the company
marched and countermarched in every forma
tion and gave the bayonet exercise and man
ual with and without the numbers. The chief
feature was the presentation of a costly silk
flag to the Rifles by Chancellor MacLean act
ing for Lieut. Pershing. It was a proud color
guard that moved forward under Liet. Weeks
to receive the colors from Liet. Stotenburg and
Chancellor MacLean. And the company was
proud, too, as Capt. Oury brought them to
present arms and the band played wThe Star
Spangled Banner" with the silken folds of the
new Hag unfurled in the breeze.

The Valentine party given by the Palladian
girls at the homo of Miss Jefiery last Monday
evening, adds one more event to the annals of
Palladianism. That it was a delightful party
is as natural as the relation of cause and ef
fect. Could a saint have read some of the
verses and seen some of the artistic produc
tions which were put up at auction, he would
certainly have said they were too demonstra
tive to be doubtful it was Cupid's day. The
value of the gems varied inversely as the
prices paid. The latter ranged from ton
pounds of chocolate to forty smiles this was
Cupids' day. The evening was spent with
games and a general good tine. Two beauti
fully decorated tables, loaded down with
delicacies from the hands of the Pall, girls,
refreshed the eighty guests, only to make
them lighter hearted than ever Cupid was
found in it all. The alumni present were
Messrs. T. F. A. Williams, E. F. Piper, Z, E.
Crook, A. S. Johnson, the Misses Flora and
Edna Bullock, Nettie Philbrick, and Mr. and
Mrs. F. F. Tucker. There certainly is not
one who will not remember St. Valentine's
day at the home of Miss Jefiery as one of the
brightest and most enjoyable events of their
