, the University have little or no social
life. The other one-third it is said,
I have such a crowded social life as
to suffer a detriment to their real
interests. So it shall be the purpose
of this organization to promote a
wholesome and systematic opportun-
i ity for all the students of the Univer
sity to enjoy an elevating social life.
It is the plan to have regular meet
ings of the club about every two or
three weeks. The organization is not
vnder the auspices of the Y. M. C. A.
or Y. W. C. A. but Mr. Moore has
tendered the use of the Y. M. C. A.
Building for the meetings. The or
ganization is to be a democratic so
ciety for all the students in the Uni
versity. Mr. Moore said that he be
lieved that there was an urgent de
mand for such an organization in the
school, and that he believed that it
was a movement capable of doing
