New words have come into use dur

war brought many of thara. Even old
words are best defined in terms of
<heir precise meanings in sentences
For new w r ords, just making their
place, no other way is practical. The
author has used typical sentences in
Ahich they define themselves and the

HALLOW E'EN PARTY

Masquerade At “Y” Rooms On
Saturday Evening All Had!

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

Unreasonable Woman
Jones was one of those men whe
grumble at everything and everybody.
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

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.
