ITo went on to declare that the great
work that Major Sloan had done as
professor would live for irenerations

was glad to have had such a noble
man as its bead for these many
(Major Sloan was deeply touched
and thanked the hoard for its kind
j expressions. Later on a committee
<' was appointed to prepare resolutions
on the retirement of President Sloan.
This committee will consist of Messrs.

When 1 feel a headache coming on,
savs a writer in the April Designer.
1 look around for the cause. Usually
1 loosen my hair. It is not generally
known that hair done up tightly and
pinned close to the head will cause
headache. Try letting ihe hair fall
loose, or braid or pin it loosely in a
a different style. Sometimes it is
my collar which is too ti-_rht. and
when 1 take it I'f my V.'adache disappears.
Again it is caused l?v ti<_iht
or uncomfortable shoos, or by highhe.?lcd
shoes, which may feel coinfor'.able
but which will cause the trouble.
REPAIR SHOP?Furniture, lounges,
