Miss McCormick Talks.
Although nominations for the
electionswere nmade by a commit-
tee composed of Sophomore repre-
sentatives to the League, and a
member of the board of representa-
tives, further nominations were
made from, the floor. Jean Wins-
low, secretary of last year's Fresh-
man class, acted as chairman of
the meeting.
Before the nominations were be-'

tainment, and the duties of the
committee chairmen. The election
was in charge of the . judiciary
council. Ruth Van Tyne, president,
explained the system of voting,
and recognized nominations from
the floor.
Second Cabaret Given.
The cabaret will be offered in
conjunction with the League baz-
aar, to be held in Barbour gym-
nasium early in December. The

Sophomore activity was the annual
circus. The class voted to inaug-
urate the cabaret, as interest in the
former was dying out. Because of
the success it encountered, the
cabaret was adopted as a regular
