o THE CITADEL o
CHARLESTON. Feb. T.- The annual
Keillor hop. given l>y tli? Juniors in
honor of tho graduating class, will
take plnco next Friday veiling al the
Hllhermlon Hall on Mooting street.
Cadet I. I*. Cothrnn of Greenville,
chairman ol tin- committee, is huslly
engaged ill making final preparations
for the occasion which will doubtless
prove tu be a most successful and
pleasant one. A very attractive card
lias heen selected and every one is
looking forward to the event with ?
great deal of interest.
The financial sc heme launched by
Lieut. Jesse Gaston, Commandant of
('.Klein some weeks ago. and which
met the hearty approval of the Cadets,
has In en adopted and will become ef
fective as soon as all of the parent:*
or gunrdiuns remit the required
amount. The idea, which Is based
upon the same system us that used
at West Point, is to establish a class
fund which Is to be drawn upon to
defray the expenses of the various
entertainments, bops, lecture, athlet
ics, etc. in return the Cadets will be
admitted to all of these functions free
A number of baseball enthusiasts
took advantage of the warm weather
of the past week by "warming up"
every afternoon so as to early rid
themselves of sore arms, tender
bunds, etc. in u short while class
baseball will become the rnge and the
diamond on the campus will bo the
scene of some exciting contests. Tho
championship last vear was won by
tho Juniors, who, now being senior?,
expect to boast another chumpion
rdilp aggregation. It is n safe bet that
they will have this coveted pleasure
unless tho varsity should happen to
draft some of their players.
Tho Sphinx will ho sent to the
press, it is hoped, by March 15. In
dications are that the edition this
year will be one of the best ever pub
lished by the corps of cadets. These
who deslro a copy should make appli
cation for samo within the next few
weeks as the number ordered from
tho printers will he limited by the de
mand for them. The price of tho book
is $;J.OO. Application from the Pied
mont suction may be addressed to
either T. D. Juckson or Geo. W. Clem
cut, ut the Citadel.
