John Waddell has made the Vandy
baseball team and will probably do some
base work ou it this season. lie will
be known as "Rube Waddell II," which
is counting one too soon, as he has an
uncle in Louisiana who is known on a
local diamond by that title.

The scarcity of social news this week
is a reminder of some of the news re
ports iu the "Fruit Cake Special, " the
weekly paper of the U. C. T. S. The
weather report in this sheet was given
last week under the heading of weather
news and contained the expressive word,
muchly used in 'scholastic circles,' "rot
ten." Under the heading, "River
News," was the observation, "No river,
no news." For a reporter paid at the
usual column rate, the fact of there be
ing no river and consequently no river
news is naturally disheartening, but
what can lie much worse is the fact that
there is "No,weather, no society." One
of our colored uncles says that we are go
ing to have bad weather until Easter
Sunday, and as these is more local trust
placed in his predictions than in those
of the Washington bureau man, a gen
eral blighted appearance will probably
bo noticed in the social news for some
time to come.
