This is not wholly the task of the church and school for every organization or lodge can play its part." i FUNKHOUSER AND Society WRITE IMccIrch of Chi Omega Give Dance A bcnutiful ten dance was Riven Saturday In the Armory of the University by the pledges of the Chi Omega frntcrnlty of the University in honor of the Lnmbdn Alpha Chnptcr.
