In tho lecture, Dr. Croissant hurled several sharp criticisms at tho etymologists, whose Ignorance Is large h' responsible for the misspelling of nmny of our words.

Tho "Lodge of Jilted Brethren," a club proving that misery loves company, was reorganized at State University last week and Robert Mitchell Jr., was "Senior Grand Mogul," having been the hardest hit. a Four students having received "jilting" letters from their "one and only" within a week, banded themselves together and thus the club was founded. Since then it has become necessary to make rules for membership society, as the into this applicants have become so numerous. In order to become a member It is necessary to present a "Jilting" letter from the girl and also the name of 'the other fellow. These letters are read at every meeting and "That Old Girl of Mine" and "We Love the Ladies," are sung, after which reports from the Poultry and Old Maids' Committees are made. Plans are now on foot to organize a ladles' auxiliary to the lodge. The present officers of the lodge are: Senior Grand Mogul, Robert Mitchell, Jr. Bouncer, Clifford T. Dodson; Grand Junior 'Bouncer, S. H. Brown; Grand Scribe and Fi (n) ance (r), Lee Rector; Chairman of Poultry Committee, J. H.
