loyalty and splendid co-operation dur

of a continuation and increased effort
during the coming year.

Treasurer, Mrs. F. F. Carrall. Mrs.
E. O. Trahan was elected musician,
and Rev. Thomas Colbert, spiritual di
Father Colbert spoke at length on
the accomplishments during the past
year saying that an organization was
judged by the progress it had made
and he urged even a stricter adher
ence to duty and a broader promul
gation of the purposes of the circle.
The circle thanked him for his able
and spiritual guidance.
Miss Ella Graham, executive secre
tary of the Red Cross, came before
the circle to thank the members for
their confidence in and assistance to
the Red Cross in a number of in
stances, and asked that further co
operation be given, requesting that a
committee be formed to do outside
office work for Red Cross, and that
other church clubs would do likewise,
making Red Cross a social service
center, as it were. This idea was
readily endorsed and the committee to
serve is composed of Mesdames Har
ry Hebert, John Appel, Sidney Wax,
Rose Gessely and Miss Winnie Costel
Requeim high masses are to be said
by request of the circle for two re
cently deceased members, Miss Mitt
KIleinpeter and Mrs. C. H. Jolly. This
circle received communion in a body

A house committee to co-operate in
the affairs of Varsity Manor was de
cided, this to be named at the dis
cretion of the president.
The annual Easter egg hunt will be
given complimentary to the orphans
of both the Catholic and Protestant
orphan homes. This year it will be
given on the grounds of the State
Capitol and will take place, as usual,
the Saturday afternoon before Easter.
One would think we were in the
stone age, judging by, the metalic
trimmings used to-day. Isn't it hard?
Even metalic ornaments on hats, big
stones on slippers, metal chains for
belts and "metalic" ribbons more
popular than the soft kind.

1- LECTURE BY DR.
EDITH PL SWIFT
le Dr. Edith Hale Swift brought to a
it close her series of four lectures ad
e, dressed to the coed body of the Lou
:e isiana State University. In the opin
is ion of the entire coed body and of
to Mrs. Mary C. Herget, dean of wo
r- men, Dr. Swift's lectures were of in

I- one of the few really great things
that have even been done for the
id welfare of the coeds at Louisiana

tt The lectures, comprising the tracing

of children, and explanations and ad

ns filled a lack that in most cases had
at been filled in home life or in high
be school, and for which no provision had
te hitherto been made in the curriculum
ii, of the University.
r. The lectures were very popular with
the coeds and there was a full at
tendance each day. Dr. Swift made
e a lasting impression with her charm
ic ing personality, talking to many girls
? individually and to others who enter

)r ciation of the lectures, at the close of
re the last one on Thursday, the coeds
gave a rousing cheer, "fifteen big
ones," for Dr. Swift.
S During her stay in Baton Rouge
Dr. Swift was a guest at Coed cot
tage on the campus, and for different
meals was entertained at Varsity Ma
Snor, Coed house, Kappa Delta house,
Sand Delta Zeta house, and was given
a luncheon by the Home Economics
department. She expressed great
* pleasure at being in Baton Rouge,
Sand said she enjoyed most the climate
and the mocking birds. The natural
beauty of the campus, and especially
the magnificent oak trees, appealed to
