ing to I"..-! received daily at the
office of th"' alumni secretary.
Letters, have been received from
alumni in It.iltiuiorc, Md.. Washington,
D. C I.o. Angeles, Cal.. Spokane.
Wash., and New York City. Several
from different points in Georgia, Okla
homa, Illinois and other states write
' that thev are coming.
"I am planning to spend Commence

Senior Women Will Make Farmers.
Fair the Only Exception.
About 45 women were initiated last
night into Alpha Phi Sigma, the senior
women's society. Following thelniti
ition these ollicers were elected:
President, Kowena Campbell; vice
president. Kuth Sedwlck; secretary,
Temple Kean; treasurer. Lummle
Lynch; chairman of entertainment
committee, Hulda Hollman; council
members. Marguerite Jackson and
Myra Harris.
The senior class decided to wear
caps and gowns, with one exception,
throughout Stunt Week. This excep
tion was made in the case of the day
of the Farmers' Fair.
Miss Emma H. Mundy, the retiring
president, put before the girls what
she called the "Big Sister Movement."
This consists of all senior women
meeting the trains the first few days of
school and taking the freshmen girls
home with them. They would keep
the frcfchmcn over night, help them to
find a rooming place and help them
enter up. The senior girls would
take advantage of this opportunity and
give the new girls advice.
Miss Mundy thought that a strong
class spirit could also be aroused In
this manner; that the senior girls
could talk class organization to them
there by Insuring much more enthus
iasm and Interest in the organization.
Miss Munday said: "Start a class off
strong nil it will end in a much strong
er senior class. It will be able to ac
complish a great deal more for the
good of the University."

pointment would be made in the near

beard that Mr. Shackleford Is in Jef
ferson City now, and that he will be

This Time a University Employe Went
Up to Untie a Knot
The flagpole on the campus looks
pretty high, but William Kenard, elec
trician for the University, climbed to
the top yesterday. For his feat, he
and his helper, the man who stood
down on the ground, received $5. A
knot in the rope by which the flag
is raised on the pole prevented the
flag's being raised yesterday, and
there was no way to get a flag except
by climbing the pole to get the knot
He climbed it without the assist
ance of a rope or any kind of a safety
strap to keep him from falling.
Did you ever notice that a big flag
is on the flagpole some days and a
small one at other times. Then per
haps you noticed the big one when
the weather is good and the small one
when it is bad?. The small one is the
storm flag, but it doesn't always bring
a storm.
If you passed the flagpole early in
the morning you might be led to be
lle' e that there would be no weather
nt all that day because there is no
flag up. The flag is taken down every
night Officers in the oGice of Lieu
tenant McH. Eby attend to It but it is
done without regular military form.
In military forte the flag is raised
by two officers andean assistant and
is raised at the begnining of the morn
ing call and lowered at the last sound
of the evening call
