Party For Year
Sorority, dormitory and League
house residents are invited to come
to the first League party of the
year on Friday at 4:15 in Barbour
gymnasium and bring their new .*
members, and introduce them to
"society." So few dates could be
secured for League parties this yearl
that the whole campus will have to
make more out of each one in order
to make up for their scarcity. Dec-
orations, music and refreshmentsS
are to be more elaborate than those .
of the past few years, and the
women of the League will have to
turn out in full force for every;-
On Friday next, the party will
be-a football party. Of course, since
only women are invited, the team
will not be present, but some clog
dancers, in emulation of our usual °
heroes, will attempt to fill theirv
places. And then, there will be the-@

their best to be a band for the oc-

Honorary Society
Initiation of the members re-
cently elected to Wyvern, Junior
honorary society, took place last
night at 7:30 at the Kappa Delta
house on Cambridge road.
The following women were initi-
ated last night: Dorothy Beck,
Dorothy Bloom, Valborg Egeland,
Bessie Egeland, Lorinda McAn-
drews, Dorothy Tauff, Arliene Heil-
man, Dorothy Woodrow, and Ail-
ene Yeo.
Members of Wyvern are elected
on the basis of scholarship, activi-
ties, and personality. The sorority
had charge of the sending of let-
ters to freshmen this year, and also
of the sale of bluebooks, the pro-
'ceeds of which always go to the
Women's league. The chairman of
the bluebook sale will be appointed
in the near future, according to
Margaret Bush, president of the



The invitations contrary to those
sent out last year will be of a very
informal type to carry out the un-
conventional spirit of the evening.
Eleanor Cook gave the head of
each committee the report for last
year and requested that the ideas
contained in them be studied care-
fully, but any original plans should
be worked out if it is possible. The
women were urged by the finance
chairman to make out tentative
budgets so that there will be some-
thing very definite to work out at
the next meeting. Since the Soph-
omore spread is to be given Friday
night, October 26, it is essential
that a great deal of work by the
committees be accomplished in the
17 remaining days. Miss Richards
suggested that the budget of last
year be regarded as an approxima-,
tion until it is found out what the
expenses will be for this year.
It is planned to collect $1.00 from
each Sophomore girl to cover the
expenses of the spread and also off
the Sophomore circus. As far as
it is now known the day to pay this
assessment will be at the beginning
of next week.
