3 7: -.
Saturday, Oct. 10: The Crescents entertained
all the girls in Bide-A-Wee last night and I
gave up trying to sleep at home and went
over to the boiler room.
Monday, Oct. 12: We had a talk in chapel
today about an Endowment for Graceland.
It seems to be the rage and of course we
can't be behind the times.
Wednesday, Oct. 14: School was dismissed for
intersociety games in the morning. The Kap
girls and Nik boys came out ahead.
Saturday, Oct. 17: More initiations. I hear
the F O Xls annexed Glen, Evan, and Clar-
Sunday, Oct. 18: A bunch of the girls went to
Herald Hall for dinner so I had lots of time
to doze. At the Hall they learned some new
songs. I'll be glad to hear something besides
Thursday, Oct. 22: The Cathedral Choir sang
at the church tonight-the first Lyceum num-
ber. I enjoyed it fine myself.
Tuesday, Oct. 27: The Record today was full
of noise about the Endowment. They say it
means life or death to the college. It would
sure be terrible if it failed.
Friday, Oct. 30: Great preparations are under
Way for the Homecoming tomorrow. We
even have lots of snow to celebrate with.
The Herald Angels presented "College Days"
in the gym and I laughed myself into a fit,
but I came to in time to see the old students
that came in on the 8 o'clock. It sure seems
good to see them all.
Saturday, Oct. 31: Everyone has been so busy
today with breakfasts, society meetings, pep
meetings, parades, and that awful muddy
football game that we're all about in.
Sunday, Nov. 1: Most of the girls stayed home
and cleaned up everything for the house
opening. Everything looked so nice I was
proud I belonged to the dorm.
Thursday, Nov. 5: This week has been pretty
tame after last, but the weather has furnished
plenty of excitement. Anyway the other half
of the intersociety games were played and
those Kapplgirls came out ahead again, and
the Pi boys.
Friday, Nov. 6: You ought to hear those girls
groan that played baseball yesterday. Even
Judy says she feels stiff and thatls saying
something. Flossie told me all about Vivian
McElroy's and Tuck Johnson's wedding.
Wednesday, Nov. 11: Our boys played Penn
today and lost 6-4. Too bad! Good reports
are coming in from our Endowment workers.
Thursday, Nov. 12: There was a Lambda
Delta Sigma meeting and Mr. Mortimore
talked on geology. I don't care for those
high-brow affairs, myself.
Friday, Nov. 13: The Allover Six Club had a
feast at Herald Hall. I tried to get some of
the duck but it was eaten in a hurry, I guess.
Tuesday, Nov. 17: This week the students are
'having their pictures taken for the ACACIA.
Some of them are awfully funny looking.
Miss Norris had her hair bobbed. Hurray!
Friday, Nov. 20: The students learned how to
eat in chapel today. No such foolishness for
me. I'm pretty efficient in my own way.
The K. girls have three new members, I'm
told, Fae, Ada, and Gertrude Lane.
Wednesday, Nov. 25: Today school is out for
Thanksgiving vacation. I guess I'll take
one, too, though I hate to miss what the ones
who stay will do.
Sunday, Nov. 29: Here I am back again and
my old corner sure looks inviting. Guess
I'll turn in.
Monday, Nov. 30: They had lots of things
while I was gone, a vacation frolic in the
gym, and a lecturer at the church. Flossie
said everyone laughed a lot, but she couldn't
see much to it. They had chicken at the
commissary Thanksgiving and to think I
missed it. I
Tuesday, Dec. 1: Tonight there was an illus-
trated lecturer at the Coliseum. She intro-
duced "Pal" to us and that seems to be con-
nected with Tess S0mCW3y'. I nearly went to
sleep till she mentioned cats. That woman
sure hates cats, guess I'd better stay out of
Friday, Dec. 4: Conny is going away Sunday
so the O. O. H.'s had a party for her. The
Freshmen were sure kiddish at their party. I
got disgusted and came home early.

Wednesday, jan. 6: I noticed tirvo new dia-
monds today, Katharine Axtell and Frances
much for them.
Thursday, Dec. 10: I went down to look in on
the Football Banquet at the Coliseum. The
program was dandy and the eats looked
good. I almost threw two fits to see Trax
acting like Mr. Briggs.-We had sad news
today. Virgil Johnson died yesterday in a
hospital in Des Moines. V
Friday, Dec. 11: The College Players put on
their first play at the Coliseum. It was some-
thing about a lot of keys and looked like an
awful mess to me, but everyone seemed to
Wednesday, Dec. 16: We had a Christmas Ves-
per Service tonight and I came home feeling
so happy and "Christmasy" that I almost
lost a life trying to express myself. I guess
I'm just not understood.
Thursday, Dec. 17: A Mr. Koch sang at the
church tonight. Flossie said Miss Carlile
thought he was the best we ever had here.
Friday, Dec. 18: The Community Pictures are
shown at the Coliseum now and I waited
around an hour to get in, as nobody told me
that they are at 7:30. Anyway the show
"Broken Laws" was worth waiting for. I'd
have used a slipper on that kid, and one on
his dad, too.
Saturday, Dec. 19: The girls debated tonight
about pitying their grand-children. I didn't
go, but I suppose it is a vital question to
those who have grandchildren.
Tuesday, Dec. 22: I tried to get in on the
Lambda Delta Sigma Christmas dinner, but
someone gave me a dirty look and I cut for
home. They had chicken, too.
Wednesday, Dec. 23: Hooray! Vacation!
Nuff sed till Jan. 5.
Tuesday, Jan. 5: Everyone, that is all but the
SW, are back and ready for school. New
Year's Resolutions seem to be in style, but I
don't suppose they'll last long.

Monday, Jan. 11: The Pi's won the Record
contest today. They must have lots of soci-
ety spirit or lots of cash.
Friday, Jan. 15: Mr. Lawrence Brings read to
us in chapel-it was from "Macbeth" I
left during the sleep-walking scene. It was
too spooky. He read "Candida" at the
church and it was fine.
Saturday, Jan. 16: Edith Woods knocked 'em
all cold at the Academy Declam contest to-
night with "The Phantom Airplane."
Monday, jan. 18: Chillicothe beat us at our
first basketball game. Miss Layton got taken
for a co-ed and almost had a date.
Tuesday, Jan. 19: Another game tonight.
Wowie! They beat us again.
Wednesday, jan. 20: Not much doing tonight.
The library was jammed with folks getting

Thursday, jan. 21: The Lambda Delts learned
all about modern music and art.
Friday, jan. 22: Exams and more exams. I'm
glad I'm a cat.
Saturday, Jan. 23: Miss Layton's Contempo-
rary Literature class had a banquet, toasts
and all. Fine way to take exams, I'd purr.
Tuesday, Jan. 26: Clarinda played basketball
here tonight and we almost went wild and
then the score was 30-29 in their favor. Too
bad for us and Boot's head.
