The following have been recommended to places on the staff, and in
case of vacancies will be appointed;
Anna Louise Connor, Louise Connell,
Katherine Renick, Kitty Conroy, Lor-ett-a

Griffin, Francis Bethel, Edmons Richardson, Raymond Kirk and Paul Peck.
The Kernel wishes it understood
that the organization reserves the
right to make such changes in the
personnel of its staff as presence of
new students in September may suggest and it hopes further to be able
to handle the work of its staff on the
basis of merit; that is to say that no
staff member will be permitted to hold
a position in the editorial organization
unless such student continues to do
his work promptly and well.
Although the foregoing selection
places iMlss James in the field of feature editor, the student body is assured
that the promotion from "Squirrel
Food," which she has written with so
marked success for two years, to that
of Feature Editor will not keep her
from being an interesting contributor
to the former whenever she may find
time from her other duties to do so.

Science corroborates with the Bible In

School, in a talk on Social Hygiene,

Mary Lyons, secretary; Martha Van Meter, treasurer.
Mrs. Stephenson also said: "Just as
our souls develop, our bodies must
creep toward perfection. In order to
progress we must have both the conservative and the liberal element."
