Routine business was disposed of after which a "good time was had by all." All incoming members were required to adopt a Spanish name and pin it-on their respective coat lapels.

The line was long and a continued supply of newcomers found space on the ''mourners' bench" selling 5t a premium. Speculators were even going to the extreme of obtaining a space and then disposing of it to the highest bidder. Those individuals whose names failed to appear on the list felt they were being slighted, as the name of practically every student was posted. Those "in on the know" believe Dr. Bush was trying to acquire information anent the teachers, but it seems he was in receipt of that riews, and was just verifying it. The result, —well, books are being opened and midnight oil burned in an endeavor to hoist those low grades. In case any person is not aware of the underlying purpose of the interviews, may it be stated that "cinch" cards, those valentines of the faculty, were issued.
