take place next Friday evening al tho
Hllbermlan Hall on Meeting street.
Cadet I. p. Cot li ran of Greenville,

looking forward to the event with a
great deni of interest.,
Tito llnuneiul scheme launched by
Lieut. Jesse Gaston. Commandant of
Cadets some weeks ago, and which
met the hearty approval of the Cadets,
has been adopted and will ben tm- ef
fective ns Boon as all of the parents
or guardians remit the required
amount. The idea, which ?B based
upon the fame system us that used
nt West Point, is to establish a class
fund which I? to he druwn upon to
defray tho expenses of the various
entertainments, hops, lecture, athlet
ics, ctr. In return the Cadets will he
admitted to all of these functions free
Af .number of baseball enthusiasts
took advantage of the warm weather
of the past week by "warming up"
even?, afternoon so as to early rid
t hr misch es of sor'o anns, tender
hands, etc.. In a short while class
baseball will becom? thc rage and the
diamond on the campus will be the
scor^of some exciting contests. Thc
championship last year was won hy
the gaylors, who, now being seniors,
expect-.- to bonst another champion
ship aggregation. It is a safe bet (hal
the>7j\vi? have this coveted pleasure I
unless thc varsity should happen to]
draft some of their players.
Thc Sphinx will be sri... to thc
press, it is hoped, by March 15, In
dications' arc that tho edition this
