The Union celebrated the thirtieth
anniversary of its founding this fall
at Open House, but the League can
boast of 44 years of existence in
June. In 1890 with but about 100
women in the University a group
banded together and formed the
"Women's League." Surprise! The
men are not always first.
Let's abandon the marking sys-
tem, daring young students cry, be-
lieving themselves to be wickedly
radical and progressive, but for over
50 years the University had no mark-

or continued on condition.
It was partly due to the agitation
for the establishment of a chapter
of Phi Beta Kappa, which could not
be maintained under that system.

As for the dinner dress, it is at its

year, and lately the League and
Union have been thronged with com-
