III. Graduates' Reception.

The graduates of the year were entertained to a very cheerful social evening by the Graduates and Past Students' Association in the Pioneer Club rooms on the evening of May 8—an excellent variant on the customary luncheon, leaving as it did sufficient time on the Great Day to get oneself sufficiently well-groomed and be-gowned with an absence of that breathless rush generally so characteristic of the occasion. Miss Pigou sang very well, Miss Thyra Baldwin recited, Miss Frances and Miss Eudora Henry played the violin and piano, and Miss Clachan accompanied the singers. Professor Kirk, in hailing the new graduates, dispensed some characteristic words of wisdom and of cheer; and Mr. D. S. Smith, as President of the Graduates and Past Students' Association, invited them all very seductively into the fold. Supper and the Final Chorus concluded the evening's work.
