"Yes, Muffets, it looks as if grandpa needs her to take care of him," was his only comment. His mood lasted only an instant, however, and laughing once more, he said, as he set his "Muffets" down, "But come on, we can't stand here talking, Pal's in the car, barking for us to hurry." So, hand in hand they walked to the car, and then rode away t o the little bungalow at the edge of the town.

Peggy snatched her up, and began to clean her face with her apron. To her horror, there was not a bit of color left in the doll's face, for the medicine had eaten away the paint. "Why, Daddy! That medicine does make you sick. Rose Mary looks jes like grampa did when his appdendicitis got sick." Then, suddenly she was laughing joyously. "Now Momsy will come! Now Momsy will come! Now—you see. Daddy, Momsy said not to let Rose M a r y get sick, because then she'd have to come to take care of her. Will you telephone? Quick, Daddy!" But " D a d d y " only smiled sadly, and shook his head. "Why, Mother couldn't come all t h a t way for a dolly. She was j u s t joking, Muffets, dear. It would be different if you were sick. She'd probably come then. But there, there, don't cry so, honey. I can get your dolly fixed easily. I'll even get you a new one if you wish. Daddy's big girl shouldn't cry so about a dolly. Please, Muffets."

They found her lying unconscious on the floor, with a deep gash in her head. As quickly as possible they laid her on a cot, and the doctor dressed the wound as best he could. He thought he would never finish, his hand trembled so, and he was so troubled by the thoughts that flashed across his mind. And when he did finish she was still unconscious, so he could only sit and wait. As he waited, he puzzled about how it could have happened. Whatever was Peggy doing in his office? Then, his eye rested on "that pink bottle." Still, .why would she want that? Then, like a flash his own words crossed his mind. "If you were sick' i t would be different. She'd probably come then."

Johnson as President Wichers. With a few of the members present and the others excused f o r very valid reasons, some m a t t e r s of very serious import were taken up and discussed. The meeting, although probably not a very .typical one, proved to be very humorous. With the singing of the Sorosis songs the meeting adjourned. There will be no regular meeting this week, but a social hour is being planned.

Tomorrow night the Orange and Blue cagers will face Hillsdale college at the local armory in an eff o r t to cling to second place in the M. I. A. A. So f a r this season the SouthsUters have won one and lost two M. I. A. A. games, while Hope has won two and lost one. A victory for the visitors would place them in a tie for second place and so a royal battle should ensue. Hillsdale always offers stiff competition and Thursday will find them more eager than ever for a victory. Coach Hinga will use the same line-up t h a t started the Alma game with Spoelstra at center, Nykerk and H. Dalman a t forwards, and A. Dalman and Visscher at guards. This combination has been clicking in fine fashion. With the f a s t breaking offense working as it has in the last two games Hillsdale will have to be on her toes every minute of the game. The preliminary game will start at 7:15. -o-
