This is one of the oldest and beBt Fraternal Orders in existence and has had a wonderful growth and influence, To all loyal men who are lovers of of the right and a foe for ever of the wrong, Ironton Lodge, No. 244, Knightsof Pythias, extendB you a welcome to become a member. As announced last week, Memorial Services were held at the Presbyterian Church on Sunday afternoon. Rev. Bush delivered a-splendid address be fore an appreciative gathering and the Program was well carried out. On Monday the graves of our soldier dead, and the tablet in the High School, were decked with flowers with appropriate, ' ceremonies. The committee in charge deserves to re turn sincere thanks to all those who rendered assistance and particularly to the Register for publicity and to those who provided cars to convey the children to the cemeteries, " - Piedmont Journal-Banner, May" 26th: "Old Sol was on the job Sun day afternoon and conditions were ideal for baseball. Des Aro by losing t Lecper was dislodged from the 'league leadership and Piedmont and Williacusville are tied for the first honors. The Willlamsville . Braves trimmed the Anapolis Miners and as a result the Miners are the undisputed cellar champions. The Braves played their usnal strong game and walk ed over the opposition without trouble. Leeper set the League leaders back a notch when they trimmed Des . Arc in a loosely played game. Baum was on the mound for Leeper and while not particularly good was able to keep out in the front owing to the manner in which bis team mates lambasted Barnes. It must be admitted, howev er, that Des Arc gave Barnes misera ble support." To the good Sisters and those under their charge I am sgain Indebted for an evening of rare enjoyment at the Arcadia College Auditorium last Sat urday evening. A short but unusually fine program as it impressed me was presented. All the numbers were good and artistically rendered. Re stricted space and time deny me the pleasure of saying all that I desire or that the entertainment deserves. The happy faces and the liquid voices attuned to entrancing concords of sweet sounds will long be a grateful memory. The two numbers, "Ave Marie" and "Angel's Serenade,"were especially appealing to eye, ear and sense; symbolizing a heaven of inno cence, purity and song. Wicked in deed the heart and dull the mind not drawn to it. An old man's good wish es go to those who gave him an hour of forgetfulness of earth and self. Last week's Perryville Sun says the following about the ball game be tween the Ironton and Perryville nines at Ste. Genevieve on May 22d: "The strong Ironton-Arcadia Valley baseball club went down to defeat last Sunday afternoon at Ste. Gene vieve at the hands of our Red Sox sluggers. The contest was a grueling ten-inning, hard hitting game. Both Singers Were in poor form, in the early part of the game Lambing hav ing one bad inning, this the fourth, Ed allowed nine bits while the Sox were piling up a total of sixteen at the expense of Lewis who was on the hill for the Valley organization; among the hits pounded out by the Sox were 3 three-ply swats and five two-base punches. Rozier pulled a prize bone in the seventh Inning when with two down and he on third, Stauder swinging Rozier started for home with the pitcher's windup, no signal had been given him and he was out by several feet at the plate, Lewis to B. Pruitt. The visitor's um pire was so rotten that a new man had to be put in his place, he, having called men safe when it was evident from any place in the park that they were out, and called them out when they were safe according to the opin ion of every one else but himself."

The three days of the Alumnae Meeting at Arcadia College were red letter days, and will long be remem bered by the visitors, pupils and teachers. Each day .was brimful of surprises and the entire program, careiuuy planned, was carried out Without the least flaw. : Saturday, tbe 28th, was designated Student's Day. At noon the mem bers of tbe St. Ursula's Alumnae As sociation began to arrive at Alma Mater. The joyous greeting between Sisters and pupils, classmates and school day friends, indicated the happiness of the 1921 Home Coming. After luncheon all wended tbeir way to ine beautiful park where old days, pranks and home interests formed the chief topic of conversation. The Students' entertainment, after the May Devotions was held in the Auditorium. The stage, with its wonderful drapery and display of light effects added to the "Program of Greeting to Our Dear Old Girls" rendered by the various departments oi ine uonege. Even after tne hour of retiring bad scattered the "Girls" to the various dormitories, an occasional, suddenly unguarded peal of laughter proved that rigorous silence of former years was for these days an unremembered point of discipline. Sunday was Alumnae Day. At nine o'clock the Alumnae assisted at the Corpus Christi Mass, and participated in the Solemn Procession. The day was ideal. After the Mass the pro cession was formed and wended its way through the large College grove. The procession in honor of the Bless ed Sacrament seemed more devotion al than ever before as the voices of tbe Alumnae blended with those of the student body and congregation in hymns of praise. ine banquet held at one o'clock was a very happy affair. The dining hall was artistically festooned with purple and gold? the College colors. The guests were seated at table ac cording to' seniority. This brought classmates and school day friends together. Music was furnished by tbe College Orchestra and a very touching little address was delivered by Rev. L. C. Wernert. The business meeting was held at 8:00 p. M. The various committees had prepared their reports previously, so that the session was a business af fair. After the opening prayer, the minutes and reports were read and election of officers was in order. Miss Josephine Bristow of East St. Louis, 111., was unanimously elected President.

After this the aspirants' plea for ad mission was read. This was gracious ly responded to, and the members elect were made full fledged Alum nae Girls. Besides the Seniors, Juniors, and Commercial Graduates, about seventy-five members were present. . One of the features of the program Which was thoroughly enjoyed by all, was the Alumnae Dance. The gaily decorated hall, tbe entrancing strains of music mingled with the joyous laughter and chatter of the dear "children" made tne.scene descriptive of a frolic in fairyland. Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th, was begun bv assisting at a Memorial Day Mass celebrated by Rev.' F. X, Miller, O. Ha. It. in honor or tne nODie dead of our country and for the de ceased members of the Alumnae. The Alumnae celebration was not to be complete without an old time picnic. All were agreeaDle to this proposition, Sisters, children, and "old girls." All climbed to the top of Mount Hennessy. After gathering flowers, exchanging stories, and viewing the beauty of the Valley a basket luncheon was enjoyed. During the luncheon a special edition of "Vox ArcadienBis," the College paper, was distributed. It contained an exact account of tbe whole meeting with a list of ail the members present. At three a luncheon was served and then tbe leave taking. Like all good things here below the three days were all too soon at an end. It was a pleasure for the Alumnae to re turn to Arcadia, it was no less a joy for Arcadia to welcome them. All look anxiously into the future for an other Home Coming. Des Arc Items.
