I have to say."

A recent-investigation among the
pawn-shops along Park. Row in New
York, disclosed many badges of prom-

"soaks." In all there were about 42,
pins and three.or four Phi Beta Kappa

from 75 cents, which was the value
set on a key, to $10.
Fraternity men are inclined to scout

pawned by their owners when tempo-

are old styles no longer in use, and
were in many cases either lost or stol-
