They woro repeatedly encored and kept the crowd in a roar
during their act.
The closing number "Olio" had its scene in a fraternity's
rooms where the boys had wagered all their money on the Kan
sas foot-ball game. They wore in hot water over their debts
but avoided most bills by referring the collector to the college
settlement. The chorus was good and Messrs Mueller and
Beed made a hit in the song, "Lot Me Bring My Clothes

The Palladian Alumni Program.
Begardless of the merry making in the chapel, many people
climbed the stairs and crowded Palladian hall Friday evening.
Tho occasion was the annual program given by tho Alumni
members of that society. Mrs. A. W. Field presided over tho
meeting. Mrs. Allen sat at the secretary's desk, while Pro
feBBor Fosslorjjposed as critic. Tho numbers ran with wit, yet
there was a seriousness and a moaning underneath it all which
gave every number its right'to exist. Mr. Barrett opened the
program and carried the audience with him into the past. He
then brought out Yol. 1, No. 1 of tho University Hesperian Stu
dent, published many years ago' by tho members of tho Palla
dian Literary Society; a little four page paper it was but the
forerunner of a weekly, college journal. Judge Holme's
speech had for its theme "Tho principeles wo stand for."
Among other things he said "I am proud of my membership in
one of those societies which have ever stood for tho people of
this commonwealth." Mr. Will O. Jones spoke on the "Pall
Slate." He had first seen that interesting member in the fall
of 1882. Tho following spring he had charge of that valuable
sheet and he described minutely one adventure with it that
brought repeated cheers from the audience. At the end he
toasted the slate "A long and healthy lifo." Carl Tucker of
Omaha sang and responded to the encore "Because I Love
Mr. T. F. A. Williams in his inimitable manner gave tho
valedictory, "Over the Alps lies Italy." Professor Fossler
took advantage, although there was no reason for his doing so,
of his place on tho program and got a last word with the speak
ers of tho evening.
Mrs. A. J. Morris and Miss Clara Dimick were with us,
each rendering a very beautiful and difficult composition.
Walter's Prize' Song, Wagner and Bubonstoin's Kammenoi
Librarian Barrett of tho Historical Library, received a fine
collection from Ed. Whitcomb, editor of tho Friend Telegraph,
last Saturday. Tho collection was exhibited in tho Nebraska
building at the Omaha exposition. It consists chiefly of war
relics together with sorao Indian relics collected around Friend.
Tho exhibit will bo of special interest to tho G. A. B. as it
contains some good war romombrancos. Among them is a
mourning badge worn by tho secretary of war for sixty days
after Lincoln's death. Limbs of trees taken from tho battle
fiolds show how effective and plentiful bullets were.
MisB Mabel Tuttlo and her mother left Wednesday for New
Mexico to spend the winter. Miss Tuttle's health has been
very poor for some time, and she has recently been compelled
to give up her position on tho Northwestern Journal of Edu
cation, where she has boon employed since she loft her place
in the executive offices of tho Univorsity. Misa Tuttlo for
eight or nine years was connected with tho Univorsity, and in
such capacity she became known and loved by each and every
student who had occasion to ask her aid and advice. The
good wishos of the student body go with her on her present
trip. May she return to us invigorated by the change of
climate, and made well and strong.
