Margaret Babcock was elected gen-
cral-chairman of the Freshmen
Spread at a meeting of sophomore
women in Sarah Caswell Angell Hall
Wednesday afternoon. Of the 15 nom-
- inees 9 others were elected Chairmen
of committees to be announced later.
The committee chairmen are as fol-
lows: Dorothy Beck, Virginia Losee,
Claire Mitchell, Dorothy Griffith, Mar-
garet Ohson, Kathryn Arnold, Esther
Pryor, Helen Fellows, and Gertrude
The Freshman Spread is to be held
in Sarah Caswell Angell Hall on Fri-
day evening, October 28. It is an
annual dance which the sophomore
women on the campus give for the
freshmen. The custom has been for
the junior advisers to escort their
freshmen to the spread, giving the
newcomers a chance to become ac-
quainted with upperclassmen as well
as their own class mates.
Due to unfavorable weather con-
ditions no advancement was made in
the Intrainural hockey tournament
yesterday. The two games which
were to have been played, Alpha Phi
vs. Alpha Omicron Pi and Delta Gam-~
ma vs Kappa Alpha Theta will be
re-scheduled. Further progress in the
competitive games will be delayed
until the contests can be played on a
dry field. The winning teams of the
present tournament are being placed
in an A tournament which will de-
termine the university championship
team; the losing teams are placed in
a B tournament which will be played
as a consolation round.
Mystery surrounds a college sorori-
ty existing in Mount Pleasant, Io.
The purpose of the organization is to
assist girls who need funds to obtain
educations. The organization was
founded in 1860, and now has a mem-
bership of over 40,000. Perhaps it is
a refutation of the old saw that a
woman cannot keep a secret, but not
one of the members know what the
name of their sorority is. It is known
as the P. A. 0. Sisterhood, and re-
cently it was suggested that the let-

by various methods for the Women's
League building has this year many
new projects by which to earn their
quota for the building. For the first
time an attemot is to be made to sell
crysanthemums at a profit and this
,money will all go to the League.
J. E. May, of Albion, has offered
to Betty Nutt, '28, president of the
Woman's League his entire supply of
Crysanthemums. These may all be
taken at once or in part and sold.
The flowers are to be sold far one dol-
lar apiece. The League will receive
25 per cent of the price of each flow-
er. The O. S. U. game will be the first
football game at which the "Mums"
will be sold. It is planned to take 800
for this game and booths will be set
up at various places where they will
be sold. Letters will be sent out to
all fraternities and sororities and
dormitories urging the residents fo
buy their "muns" of the League.l
Bernice Staebler, "28, is in charge of
this sale.
This sale is however, only a part1
of the plans of the Undergraduatec
committee for the year. The otheri
committees with their chairmens are
as follows, Caps and Gowns, Bernice
Staebler, '28. It is hoped this year toE
clear at least $2,500 by the rental of;
these caps and gowns to the seniors.
Last year the Legue purchased the
caps and gowns and rented them out
to all senior women. They paid for
them last year so it is entirely gain
which the League will receive this
year for the rental of them.
This year another style show is to
be held during Spring vacation at
Hudson's in Detroit. Jean Hathaway,
'29, is in charge of this. Virginia
Read, '29, has taken over the Christ-
mas cards which the League sells each
year and this year is always before
her committee will visit each organiz-
edi house on the campus to display
their cards. There will alsotbe a book
of all the cards which will be sold
in the office of Mrs. Henderson in
Alumni Memorial Hall.
Margaret Bush, '31, is to take
charge of the Bridge teas which will
again be given simultaneously as they
were last year. The playing cards
are on sale at all times are in charge
of Jean Wallace, '31. Anyone desiring
to secure any of these may call her
at 21616.
Other methods by which the Under-
graduate committee earns money are,
the benefit movie, which.is given each
year by the board of representatives.
Last year Faust was given in Hill
auditorium. The three honor socie-
ties, Motorboard with their kid glov-
es, Senior society, with their collars
and cuffs for the caps "and gowns,
and Wyvern with their blue books
all sell for the benefit of the League.
The candy booth, which is operated
in University hall is in charge of Lau-
ra J'oslin, '30., This also is run in
connection with the Undergraduate
committee. Pan-Hellanic Ball, the
annual Bazaar which is held at
Thanksgiving time, the tea room
which is run in connection with the
bazaar, the Junior Girl's play, the
Sophomore circus, and the Penny car-
nival are all ways by which this com-
mittee functions for the benefit of the

class for- junior women from 5 -until staff officer of the British Army.

America's oldest known arithmetic,
