Tho new members' program of the Delian
society was given last Friday evening. Mr,
Gould's ghost story was delivered in such a
realistic manner that he called up some ghosts
from tho regions below whom even tho night
watch could not quiet. MiBS Davie' recita
tion was given in a very nice manner. Mr.

of gonuino humor. Mr. Vasoy sang a couple
of solos that were much appreciated by tho

Siimmci Vacnt ion.
What to do during vacation is a question
that will probably be settled by a majority of
students before examinations are finished.
Some will "go home," some will "work,"
some "study," some "rest up." Several have
already decided to stay a few weeks and make
up a course or two for college credit in Ger
man, French or Spanish at tho preparatory
school, or to bring up some prep, work that is
in arrears. Mr. John Fossler will be the in
structor in German and will have one class in
first year and tho other in second year Ger
man. Each class will complete the entire
year's work during the summer. Miss Julia
M. Korsmeycr, present assistant under Dr.
Edgren in Romance languages, will have charge
of French. Only second year French is offered.
This class will complete the year's work (two
courses) in six weeks. Spanish is offered for
the same length of time under Prof, F. E.
Clements. The days of registration are May
28, 30 and 31. All classes except French and
Spanish are scheduled to begin Juno 1. Mr.

chosen and farcial subjects by Messrs. Morse,

to tho Chancellor at Chicago and to tho "Hes
perian" contained many "hits" on the "profs"
and student body,and tho resounding applause
denotod that tho jokes were highly appre
ciated. The Union Boys' Quartette sang
some very appropriate selections. Mr. Bol
lenbach read a very laughable poem, "The
Bod Bug," which was a parody on Poo's
"Raven." Tho question, "Resolved that
Everything is Nothing," was hotly debated
by Messrs. Piatt and Heltzman. The pro-
