WANT TO GET RID OF. We are getting ready for the spring business. New goods are arriving every day, and we have got to arrange our floors so as to show them. We haven't any odds and ends or "old timers," for all our stock is fresh and new, but we have marked a lUrge number of pieces at reduced prices in order to hasten their depar ture and make room for still newer goods. It must be borne in mind that the prices at which these goods are marked are in every case much lower than can be found on similar goods elsewheie, and any reduction from our already close prices means a big saving to the purdhaser.

Formation Pr=eed by Students of National University. Articles of incorporation have been filed looking to 'the founding in Washington by students of the National University of a new Greek letter society to be known as Sigma Nu Phi, and it Is proposed to take in chapters from all the law schools in the United States.

The ultimate idea is to found in Washington a fraternity chapter house, All the law schools of the country will be invited to form chapters in this fraternity. There now exist thirty-five Greek letter col lege fraterditieb; two of which number are legal fraternities, and the projected one will make the-third. The chapter, whIch will be founded in the National University, will be named for Joseph H. Choate, the United States am bassador to England. The incorporators are Eugene - Carusi, dean of the law school, and .E~. Richard Shaipp and Charles F. Carusi, members of the faculty, together with .8ydneye F. Smith, T. L.
