accentuated by the hearty hand shakes of
the board of directors who stood in the
receiving line and greeted every visitor;
light and color greeted the sense of sight,
while the aroma of fragrant flowers and
brewing coffee addreeaed the sense of smell;
musle' and eloquence satisfied the sense of
hearing and refreshments did the rest with
the sense of taste.
The association rooms were prettily deco-
rated for the occasion with evergreens
and flowers, to say nothing of posters and
other things. Shook's orchestra furnished
music. The boy's department had a cele
bration of Its own, with college yells, songs
and various other stunts. In the gym
nasium about forty acrobatic youngsters
went through evolutions to the edification
of a large crowd.
The real event of the evening was held
In the auditorium, which was taxed tolts
standing capacity. After Alexander Stew
art sang several solos and Miss Barnes
rendered piano selections, a number of
prominent citizens told why they were
proud of the lands of their nativity. Wil

in the national debate, made the hit of
the evening In a serlo-comlo. citation of
Scotland's greatness in all lines of human
endeavor. Mr. Kennedy delved Into history
and told how Scotland took England under
its wing in sixteen hundred and something.
