Four students having received "jilting" letters from their "one and only"

applicants have become so numerous.
In order to become a member It is
necessary to present a "Jilting" letter

'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;
