party, if the bachelors will finance it.
The party 13 to be given at the Spins

ed John Stewart, the city engineer of
Evanston, said 6he realized ne was an
engineer and she would therefore send
him her "snecifications." Girls who
gave the name of "Flortnce" and
"A ernes" informed Riley P. Martin, a
retired newspaper man, that they
would be only too glad to accompany
him on the trip to California which he
