wondrrful range of her voice. Marian
Ber.sou of Youngstown, Ohio, the guest
of Mr. and Mrs. Louis K. Hirsh, was
very graceful and sweet in her two solo
dances—The BuUerfly and The Angel.
The 1920 Round-up came off, indeed,
but, like Dr. Foster’s venture, all in a
shower of rain. The bad weather came
too late and suddenly for postponement,
leaving no alternative but to carry oh.
The service committee, under the effi
cient direction of Norman A. Read and
Theodore C. Bramhall, made complete
arrangements for the entertainment of

Mrs. Marion Brown, ’93, assisted by
Emeroy Ginn, ’97, acted as hostesses for
the coffee service, while Mrs. Charles

of sound from his plucky chorus.
Mr. w 11 Howard and Hugh D. Me Lei

the evening by their pleasant reminiscent
talks, ingenious combinations of fact and
fancy about the B.H.S. as they knew her.
Miss Florence E. Dunton, oblivious of
the drawbacks of darkness and rain, pro
ceeded calmly about her business of col
lecting dues and new signatures for the
Association, and succeeded in getting a
registration of those present—thirty-five
—a company which appeared pleasant
souls, indeed, turning by their amiability
a dismal prospect into a sociable and
friendly occasion.
Thanks are due to the Masons and Odd
Fellows for the loan of coffee tanks and
dishes; to Miss Anne Crosby for the gen
erous loan of her truck; also to Mr. Ralph
