The rumo rs have at last become a fact an d the College Club shall f ot'm this cl ub at onc e. for the purpose of int eres-ti ng students in th! SJ lin e of e ndeavor. Thi s will certainly be an opportunity for students to diSl)lay their talent.

Thris form of acti vity can be helpful t o the College Club in more ways than one. The proceeds can be utiliZed very handily by the Club in sp{msori n g student activ!Ues. In former years , the co llege students produced some remarkable plays, which cau~ a g r eat deal of praise on t he p art of t h e audiences. Th eir is an attem pt to have Rev. J.
