ENTERTAINMENT FOR STUDENTS BY COEDS Social Event To Be H eld Satur day Evening Miss Mary Taylor has been chosen chairman to direct the card party which will be held in the refectory Saturday evening, December fifth. Miss Taylor is ably assisted by a numerous committee. In addition to Five Hundred and Bridge, Bunco will be played. Refreshments, as at the previous entertalnment of this season, will be served to those attending. To urge the student body to be present at this function Is quite unnecessary in view of the marvelous time enjoyed by ali of them at the former event. These social "get togethers" are worthy testimonials to the splendid spirit of the Co-eds as well as to the co-operation of the scholars.

Toastmaster's (Mr. Don Anderson) request for words fitting for the occasion. Messrs. Burke Monahan, Edmund O'Neill, Martin Toohirt, James Fullam, and Mr. IGallahuc advanced their sentiments. Mr. Gallahue especially, in his great er experie nce, encouraged those presen t to reach even greater heights of ac complishment while preparing for later life.
