Her husband, Jan van Boissevain,
is big, understanding, calm-looking.
He takes care of her, sits at her side
or back of her and watches her, ready

engineers were pledged last night in
the Union as neophytes of the Stump
Speakers Society, local branch of Sig-
ma Rho Tau, engineering speech fra-

recently lost and recovered, it was
filled with punch instead of the club's
emblematic tung oil, as usual.
The men pledged are: R. D. Min-
teer, James R. Lientz, Maurice Tay-
lor, Richard Jay, Robert Cousins, Ce-
dric E. March, William G. Pierce, H.

dock, George F. Butterfield, Karl E.
Webber, O. W. Stephenson, Jr., Wil-
liam St. Jean, Robert C. Crouch, and
George Busso. Further pledging will
occur later in the year.
In the course of the routine busi-
ness meeting following the pledging,
the secretary was authorized to send
formal challenges to both the men's
and women's teams at Michigan
State Normal College. In the Ypsi-
lanti debates the neophytes make
their first public appearance.
