AN ENJOYABLE AFFAIR.
One of the most pleasant fea-
tures of Ann Arbor student life,
is the opportunity given for social
intercourse by the socials of the
Students' Christian Association

the most enjoyable of these socials
was given last evening by the
Young People's* Society of Chris-
tian Endeavor, of the Congrega-
tionalist chuich. The early part

A NEW SORORITY.
WHAT THE ASPIRING CO-EDS
A Branch Chapter of the Kappa
Kappa Gamma Established
During the last two weeks un-
certain reports have been circulat-
ed around college stating that cer-
tain young ladies had formed a
new sorority. Last night, as our
midnight reporter was slowly
sauntering home, lie was startled
by seeing eight or ten young ladies
heavily laden with lunch baskets,
leading two young, blind-folded
freshmen co-eds along the street.
Immediately his ; suspicion was
aroused and this morning, upon
further investigation, lie found out
that a new sorority had been
started. The sorority is a branch
chapter of the Kappa Kappa Gam-
ma, the second largest sorority
in the east. The charter members
of the Michigan chapter are the
Misses Pritchard, '91; Sprague,
'91; Penny, '92; illnsdale, '92;
Penny, P. G. and Damon, P. G.
Seven more members will join
next week. There are a great
many alumnae belonging to this
sorority in the east, in town to see
the organization of the Michigan
HIGH SCHOOL RUSH.
A well contested rush took
place on the campus grounds this
morning, lasting nearly three
hours. The juniors won the rush
with a score of two goals against
the one which the seniors placed
to their credit last Saturday. The
juniors had the advantage of su-
perior numbers, while '91 rushed
with more skill. Referee, Mr. Jos-
R. G. McCall is a reporter on
the Cleveland Press.
HENRY M. STANLEY.
The Renowned Explorer's Great
When Cen. Gordon died and
his army was destroyed at Kar-
toumn ill 1884, Dr. Schmetzler, a
German Jew, commonly known
as Enin Pasha, was left in coin-
manl. His situation was very
crit(a lin the midst of untraversed
wilds and hostile savages. In the
summer of 1886, the report came
that lie could hold out but a short

this time, but as nothing could be
done, he immediately caine to
America. But scarcely had lie
arrived when lie received a tele-
gram to return to England. By
the 21st of January everything
was ready for the long and tedious
expedition and he set out for

Point, at the mouth of the Congo,
was reached the 18th of March.
A vast wilderness of several hun-
dred miles extent still lay between
them and their destination,--a
wilderness so impenetrable that
in numberless cases the men had
to climb the trunks of reclining
trees, proceeding thus in the tree-
tops a short distance, then de-
scending only to repeat the dif-
ficult task soon.
Mr. Stanley's lecture to be de-
livered here is entitled, "The
Rescue of Emin," in which he
will tell of his many hardships,
the wonderful tropical scenery, the
great resources of the country,
the condition of Emin, etc. It
will not be a chapter of his book,
but an account of the entire ex-
