The Good Fellow dance. This is the
latest form that the Good Fellow
movement has assumed on the campus.
At the junior law party held at
Grangers last night one of the dances
was announced as a special Good Fel-
low dance, and a goodly sum was re-
alized to help provide a Merry Christ-
mas for some forlorn Ann Arborite.
The committee which is assisting the
Good Fellow Editor, announces that at
all the parties which are to be held
in Ann Arbor before the holidays, one
dance will be designated as the Good
Fellow dance, and both men and wo-
men will be given an opportunity to
help the good work along by their
Arrangements have been made with
Mrs. Fremont Ward, of the Ann Arbor
Associated Charities to furnish the
Good Fellow Editor with names of
needy individuals and families, and
these names will be given out to any
organization or persons who will un-
dertake to provide the special needs
which the Good Fellow Editor advises.
In a letter which Mrs. Ward sent
to the committee yesterday, she men-
tioned that she has the names of sev-
eral boys who will go Christmasless
unless some Good Fellow steps ir
She also mentioned that there are a
like number of small girls who are in
need of warm clothes, books and vari-
ous other things, and she suggests that
some of the organized bodies of wom-
en on the campus undertake to care
for these needy cases.
There seems to be an impression or
the campus that the movement is one
which concerns only the men. The
committee having the enterprise in
charge wishes to announce that both
men and women are invited to con-
tribute to the general cause.
The Good Fellow Editor and his as-
sistant have had private telephones
installed and they, or the assistant
committeemen, can be communicates;
with at any time during the day at
either 1132 or 1649.

With Prof. J. R. Brumm as the prin-
cipal speaker, members of the fresh-
lit class will hold their second as-

class advisor, stated that such as-

until late in the spring. The first
meeting was very successful, and with
the continued support of the class,
