The smoke has cleared away from
the battlefield of the warring fraterni
ties, and each regiment is retreating in
good order, counting up its spoils, and
preparing to use its ammunition toward
winning victories in the class-room as
well as in social conquests during the
coming months. Whether resulting in
victory or defeat, there always is satis
faction in the knowledge that a battle
was well fought. Opposing forces of
superior strength, advantages of posi
tion or equipment may give the victory
to the enemy; but the fact that the con
quest was not gained without a strug
gle is no little comfort to the defeated
force. From the field of battle the Delta
Gammas have carried off as hostages
Misses Winifred Sherman, Julia De
weese, Ruth Bryan and Luella Lansing
of Lincoln; Lorraine Comstock, Edith
Dumont and Mary Harris of Omaha;
Mabel Stone of Hastings and Alice Von
Mansfield of Ashland. The Pi Beta
Phis claim Misses Grace Conerd. Wini
fred Howell, Edna Holland, Blanche
Meeker, Willa Allen, Kate Whitmore,
Helen Dalson and Bess Burruss. Into
the camp of Kappa Alpha Theta will go

Nellore Wilson, Alice Towne of Omaha
and Harriet Paul of Henderson, Iowa.

conventional style. After a few mo
ments of jolly gossip dance programs
