tlways a place for a society with a
eri'os litent. Such is the case of

ions at Michigan.
University students from Pontiac in-
tead of meeting only for social pur-
o~ees, as is the general order for

iave determined to work in a definite
i reotion for the benefit of Michigan.

really is, and not as it is reported.

of these men will be enlisted next fall

There are a great many organiza-
ions -on the campus which do not
ustify their existence, but fortunately
here are more that do. In the latter
lass the Pontiac sectional club ought
