TO NEW MEMBERS
Formal initiation of 40 new mem-
bers was held by the Cosmopolitan
club Sunday night at Lane Hall. Ac-
cording to Homer Grafton, secretary
of the Students Christian association,
there are more students of the univer-
sity who signified their intention of
joining, and who could not get to this
meeting, so that there is a possibility
of a second initiation being held in
the near future. Dean Effinger was
the principal speaker at the cere-
