The freshmen of Augustana broke

night. They had a bob party. As ;i !
matter of fact it was the first social !
function either of the two lower classes !
has had this year. The youngsters en
joyed themselves immensely, and all
the more so because they slipped away
unobserved by their protestors, the
vigilant sophs. The freshies started
on their bob tour at 7:30. For the first '
hour they clung to the outskirts of the
town. Tiiey then became bolder and
for the remainder of the evening they
bobbed in the vicinlly of the college.
Their courage grew with the evening.
