The College graduating class was
delightfully entertained at supper
last week by Dean and Mrs. Waugh.
Because of the inclement weather
veranda and house were substituted
for the lawn, and many interesting
gamea were indulged in.
A unique form of entertainment
was provided by the Dean in the
form of a contest. Between forty
and fifty quotations taken from the
Bible or from Shakespeare were read
and the members of the group were
to indicate the source of each by
telling whether it was from the Bible
or from Shakespeare. The Dean
states that a surprisingly large num
ber of persons familiar with both
Shakespeare and the Bible fall down
on this test. Other games and
music added to the pleasure of the
