"An

apple cleft in two is not more twin than these two creatures." "Which is which?" That's the current question even now, for the Twins are like unto the provc'rbial "two peas." Some people learned to distinguish between them by the curve of the chin tir the wave of the hair; others, to their undoing, by the orange-bordered sweater, the red tic. or the arm-bouquet, 'lhe Twins arc honor students, being always diligent in their business, and have attempted such monstrosities on the side as a "chem" elective and the forestry course. "Twins" are always amiable, most class-spirited, and not ao good as to be averse to go out via fire-escapes, blow fuses, and play April Fool jokes on their befuddled classmates.

"And still his tongue ran on." Tom fell in step with '13 in our Sophomore year. His peculiarities may be due to the fact that he has spent sev eral months in Panama and became partly naturalized while there. He is noted for disturbing the peace of the Dormitorj' in the early hours of the morning. The name "Sparrow" was given him because his tongue is never still. Nevertheless, Tom is a jolly good fellow and ex pects to be a scientific farmer some day.

It looked like a no-score game, but Sullivan settled that question in the last period by making a long drop-kick, the ball passing neatly between the goal posts.

After much controversy and

opposition ending in one unsuccessful attempt, finally organized in 1911. The constitution is modeled on those of the athletic clubs of Mt. Holyoke and Smith College, the object of the association being "to further all athletic interests among the women studenis." Each year insignia in the form of a blue shield four and one-half inches high bearing an anchor and the letters "R. I." in white are awarded to three women who have shown an interest in at least one organized sport, stood in gym work and fulfilled certain other requirements. Last year we established friendly relations with Brown, Sargent, and Rad cliffe but, owing to the small number of girls this season basketball games with and since for the same reason class games are other colleges was forbidden; impossible, that sport has been temporarily abandoned. In its place indoor baseball and tennis are indulged in two nights a week in the gym. Through the efforts of Miss Merrow, who has always been most actively inter ested in the association the plot of ground back of the vineyard was secured to the the Women's Athletic Association

Lead us on to vict'r>' wheresoe'er we go; We'll be ever staunch and true to you. we to other lands may wander. To distant shores and climes may go, That we are still your strong supporters, Our loyalty will show. And to your portals oft returning, To greet our friends once more; With echoes ringing, We'll join in singing Vour loud praises as of yore.
