Lounger girls' : HALLOW E'EN PARTY ' ! AT THE Y. W. C. A. i i Over Eighty Girls Under Fifteen, 1 Masquerade At “Y” Rooms On Saturday Evening All Had! 3 i Good Time V ■ 9i‘“SlS’ HOPKINS” 1 CARRIES OFF PRIZE r Taking Hallowe'en by the forelock, the younger girls of the Y. W. C. A. t i celebrated the occasion when ghosts 1 1 walk and witches do their worst, on | . j Saturday night at the “Y” rooms. State Circle and Francis eireet, Saturday night. f j The occasion was a masquerade par ity given under the auspices of the - “Y” group known an the "Pollyanna .! Girls' Reserves.” They had invited ; every girl to come in costume and to i ! be as funny as possible, all to wear t masks. Some 80 girls responded to the in vitation, and at times space in the “Y” rooms was at a premium. The rooms had been decorated with au tuntil leaves, corn ousks and corn stalks, and carried out the idea of Hallowe’en with owls, witches riding brooms, black cats and other decora tions suggestive of the night which really falls a week hence. The light; were shaded and the scene was rathe: spectacular. The evening's pleasure opened with a grand march, all the young girls he ing in fancy costume and wearing masks. The “Y” director. Miss Mc- Gregor, and other ladies of the “Y.“ had arranged a number of real Hal lowe’en games, including bobbing for apples in a tub of water, biting the apple tied from a string suspended in a doorway, putting the “nose” on tin pumpkin, feeding a partner ice cretin while blindfolded, which meant often times putting the ice cream down tin neck or on the sleeve of the unusupect ing partner. Many of the costumes were unique and others fanciful. Prizes wen awarded the best and the first prizt went to Miss Klizaeth Ridgeley, who impersonated “Sis Hopkins” and wa: the best Sis Hopkins ever seen off the stage. Indeed. Miss Ridgeley would make a line understudy for the real “Sis.” The second prize for best cliaractei went to Miss Mary Craven Johnson Jr., who was in character of the arnij widow, and as a widow who had lost her husband in the war, was a little hard of hearing and believed her um brella to be her best friend. Mis? Johnson was simply splendid. She never forgot her character, and creat ed much fun for the other girls, a? did Sis Hopkins. There were Indian maidens, ballet dancers, boy scouts, “midshipmen it. works,’ ” clowns, Pierettes, Camp Fire girls, flow’er girls, Gypsies, for tunes tellers and a host of other char acters. During the evening, which was from 7:30 to 9:30, there was music and dancing in connection with the games Everybody had a good time and there was a unanimous declaration that the Pollyanna Girls’ Reserves is a group to be proud of. Some of the girls who e tjoyed their were Virginia Kurtz, Vialo White, Majorie Moody. Clare Green, Matilda Reichel, Dorothj Williams, Mary Keene, Nellie Hill Madeline Williams, Margaret Moie land.

He was once attacked by inflainma tory rheumatism and was carefully nursed by his wife, who was devoted to him in spite of his fault finding disposition. His suffering caused hei to burst into tears sometimes as she sat by his bedside. One day a friend came in and asked him how he was getting on. “Badly, badly,” he exclaimed, “and it’s my wife’s fault.” “Impossible!” said the friend in surprise. “Yes. the doctof told me that humid ity was bad for me, and that there woman cries just to make it moist in the room.”--KnoxvilT£ Senti nel.

REV. S. S. HEPBURN (PREACHES AT ST. ANNE’S . ! Spoke On General Convention Of Which He Was Deputy From His Diocese THE SPIRIT OF HARMONY The Rev S. S. Hepburn, of the Diocese of Easton, preached the ser mon last evening in St. Anne’s church on the work of the general conven tion of the Episcopal church, Mr. Hepburn was a deputy from his dio i ceae and was on his way home from Detroit. The fact that was to be I in Annapolis was not known in time ito announce at the morning service, : which is a matter of regret as his I description was of great interest. After calling attention to the deirt oeratje manner in which representa tion in diocesan and General Conven tion is secured, Mr. Hepburn de scribed the great opening services and the splendid spirit of enthusiasm in the delegates and visitors. The great practical work of the con vent ion was the adoption of the plan for nationwide instruction and can vass. The exact amount of money to be asked for is yet to be determined, as it will depend upon more , h>sc study of the surveys of the variom diocess. The ‘ Concordat” was spoken of as one of the most practical moves to ward church unity ever made. This nvolves changes in tlie church con stitution which "'innot bo completed for three years, yet the beginning is significant. Under the Concordat, ministers of the congregational church md very possibly later of other churches, could upon fulfillment of he proper conditions, receive Epis copal ordination through continuing to exercise their ministry in their former churches. The interesting hing about the Concordat is that it is the answer to requests from Con gregat ionalists as well as from Epis copalians. A great step toward working ef ficiency was taken when the present Boards of Missions, Social Service and Religious Education were abolished and their functions merged in an executive committee. This committee will have large power of supervision md activity between sessions of the General Convention. Bishop Gailor. of Tennessee, was elected as the first executive of this new body, the work ings of which will r*oult,less greatly increase the efficiency of the church. The speaker dwelt most strongly upon the spirit of harmony and unity which marked all the sessions, the dif ferences of opinion which the church wisely permits finding expression in i spirit of tolerance and good will. SOME NEW FADS AT FOOTBALL GAMES The midshipmen have several new fads to support the team in play. One is a clapping of hands of the entire regiment. Another is the whistling of “Anchors A weigh.” It was a won lerful vocal exhibition on Saturday \fternoon to hear the entire body of midshipmen whistling this stirring, martial tune. The notes were turned as if by the voice of one man. so per fect were the time and music. i The Playtime of Youth is the Real Test of Shoes Active 1 oys and girls are hard on shoes, yet very often the child is blamed for wearing out the shoes too quickly when the shoes, themselves, are really too poor to stand the wear an active child will give them.
