J. Otto, retiring presi dent, thanked her co-workers for their loyalty and splendid co-operation dur ing the year and expressed the hope of a continuation and increased effort during the coming year. The officers were elected as follows: President, Miss Nellie Costello; 1st vice president, Mrs. J. N. Ogden, Jr.; 2nd vice president, Mrs. L. P. Amiss; 3rd vice president, Mrs. F. Pruyn; recording secretary, Mrs. Sidney Wax; financial secretary, Mrs. John Amiss; Treasurer, Mrs. F. F. Carrall. Mrs. E. O. Trahan was elected musician, and Rev. Thomas Colbert, spiritual di rector. Father Colbert spoke at length on the accomplishments during the past year saying that an organization was judged by the progress it had made and he urged even a stricter adher ence to duty and a broader promul gation of the purposes of the circle. The circle thanked him for his able and spiritual guidance. Miss Ella Graham, executive secre tary of the Red Cross, came before the circle to thank the members for their confidence in and assistance to the Red Cross in a number of in stances, and asked that further co operation be given, requesting that a committee be formed to do outside office work for Red Cross, and that other church clubs would do likewise, making Red Cross a social service center, as it were. This idea was readily endorsed and the committee to serve is composed of Mesdames Har ry Hebert, John Appel, Sidney Wax, Rose Gessely and Miss Winnie Costel lo. Requeim high masses are to be said by request of the circle for two re cently deceased members, Miss Mitt KIleinpeter and Mrs. C. H. Jolly. This circle received communion in a body on St. Joseph Day. A house committee to co-operate in the affairs of Varsity Manor was de cided, this to be named at the dis cretion of the president. The annual Easter egg hunt will be given complimentary to the orphans of both the Catholic and Protestant orphan homes. This year it will be given on the grounds of the State Capitol and will take place, as usual, the Saturday afternoon before Easter. One would think we were in the stone age, judging by, the metalic trimmings used to-day. Isn't it hard? Even metalic ornaments on hats, big stones on slippers, metal chains for belts and "metalic" ribbons more popular than the soft kind. ·M+M:·M**?:+·$k+*M+H++*M+·t··M*+r B. R. Jersey ICE CREAM co .

EDITH PL SWIFT a le Dr. Edith Hale Swift brought to a it close her series of four lectures ad e, dressed to the coed body of the Lou :e isiana State University. In the opin is ion of the entire coed body and of to Mrs. Mary C. Herget, dean of wo r- men, Dr. Swift's lectures were of in x, estimable value to the coeds and were I- one of the few really great things that have even been done for the id welfare of the coeds at Louisiana e- State University. tt The lectures, comprising the tracing is of life from the lowest to the highest ly form of life, social and personal hy giene, health talks, a brief tracing of in the development of home life, a short e- explanation of the fundamentals of s- the theory of heredity, the education of children, and explanations and ad .e vice on various problems of coeds, ns filled a lack that in most cases had at been filled in home life or in high be school, and for which no provision had te hitherto been made in the curriculum ii, of the University. r. The lectures were very popular with the coeds and there was a full at tendance each day. Dr. Swift made e a lasting impression with her charm ic ing personality, talking to many girls ? individually and to others who enter ig tained her. As a sign of their appre )r ciation of the lectures, at the close of re the last one on Thursday, the coeds gave a rousing cheer, "fifteen big ones," for Dr. Swift. S During her stay in Baton Rouge Dr. Swift was a guest at Coed cot tage on the campus, and for different meals was entertained at Varsity Ma Snor, Coed house, Kappa Delta house, Sand Delta Zeta house, and was given a luncheon by the Home Economics department. She expressed great * pleasure at being in Baton Rouge, Sand said she enjoyed most the climate and the mocking birds. The natural beauty of the campus, and especially the magnificent oak trees, appealed to Sher greatly. S Dr. Swift represents the American Association of Hygiene, with head quarters in New York City, and under the auspices of this association and with her salary paid by it, is making Sa tour of women's colleges and coed Sucational institutions in this country Sto lecture to girls, the colleges to pay Sher expenses. From L. S. U. she goes to address the students of New Scomb college, Louisiana State Normal having cancelled her engagement due to an epidemic of influenza. She is eminently qualified for her work, being a graduate of Radcliffe and John Hopkins universities, hav ing done graduate work in Harvard, and travelled extensively in Europe. The mother of two charming girls, she is peculiarly able to understand girls and their problems.
