. to get together tor the education of
New England In what West Virginia
really Is, and for the delight;
ful social advantages of meeting
and learning to know one idother.
The association Is trying In a
modest way to minimise the feeling,
present all over the country,

that West Virginia is absolutely
' the worst place harboring the worst
' kind -of people to be found anyi
where. West Virginians love their
i state and are of the type that do
not like to see It done an Injustice.
So, they have handed together, students,
professors, and residents to
try to overcome this widespread
taTk of West Virginia In the same
breath with Mexico and such un
Then, too, the social part of the
association is a very his part ot It.
The meetings afe held once a

comes the social hour when everyone
gets to know everyone else

The association has an enrollment
of over 125, hut owing to the
great distances or some of the
members from the city of Boston,
the average attendance Is .about
forty persons. The organisation Is
as informal as possible and there
