The War Council considered the ques-
tion of joining the Intercollegiate Period-
ical League, but decided it would be im-
practical. Instead, magazines collected
by the Junk Committee will be taken into
Philadelphia to the American Library As-

sent direct to hospitals in the neighbor-
hood, so that the periodicals will still be
of immediate interest when they reach
their destination. Ao
CORNSTALKS AND GAY COS-

. $290 Cleared for Social Service
Enthusiasm pent up from four weeks of
quarantine, heightened by the music of
the Varsity Orchestra, reached a high
pitch at the Hallowe’en costume party
given by the Social Service Committee
last Saturday night in the gymnasium.
$290 was made. $125 will go to the I. C.
S. A., $100 to the Varsity Service Corps
and $65 will be kept by the committee for
running expenses usually paid by the

as Hallowe’en clowns won encores by
their graceful hoop dance.
Exorbitant prices were paid for the
war posters cleverly auctioned by Private
G. Hess. R. Hickman’s bid of thirty dol-
lars was the highest of the evening. $209
was made by the posters alone.
How to pierce a husband and how to
learn your fate was told in screened cor-
ners by witches and gypsy fortune tellers.
In the lighter vein obstacle races in dress-
ing proved that the costumes of the black
cats were the most fitted.

U. S. Army on Civilians of France
“The gayety, youth, and good looks of
the American soldier charmed the French
people at once,” said Madame Claude
Riviere, Associate in French, who spoke
in Taylor last Saturday on “The Ameri-
cans in France.” “American sense of hu-
mor harmonizes perfectly with Gallic
wit, and an amazing fraternity has re-
sulted between the two nationalities.”
“The drollery and ingenuity of the
Americans,” continued Madame Riviere,
“has done much to arouse the affections
of the French civilian.” She told of the
two soldiers who stationed themselves at
the entrance to a Paris subway with a
basket of tomatoes, and established cor-
dial relations by presenting one to each
French woman who passed. And in the
town squares throughout France, she de-
clared, the American soldier may be
found, riding several French children on
each knee and teaching them to eat the
candy which their parents have long for-
bidden them. :
Madame Riviere described the astonish-
ment of the French at the huge tent cities
erected by the Americans; the feverish
activity at the ports of debarkation, and
the energy displayed by the soldiers in
their sports. “Contact with the Ameri-
cans,” she said, has taught the French
the importance of physical development,
and of initiative. The American, in his
turn, having learned to appreciate the
beauty that is France, and the depth of
French sacrifice, can now understand
Franklin’s phrase that ‘every man has
two mother countries, his own and
“Tt is our duty,’’ concluded Madame B-
viere, to enroll our hearts in the cause
for which Americans are giving their
lives: First, victory, then liberty, and
lastly the cementing of a friendly under-
standing between France and America.”
Madame Riviere, after her talk, showed
lantern slides of the ground in Alsace and
Lorraine now being reconquered by the
American Army. At the end of these
she led the audience in the singing of the

Sophomores and Freshmen solemnized
Lantern Night in the cloisters last Friday
before a quarantine audience of Faculty
and upperclassmen, Perfect rhythm all

of both classes. The Sophomore line was

The Freshmen, on the whole, outsang
the Sophomores. Their deep altos blend-
ed effectively with the higher notes to
form a well-modulated whole. They also
achieved an excellent distribution of tone
by placing a few strong voices at the end
of the line, instead of concentrating them
all at the beginning.
1921’s rendering of “Pallas Athene”
was remarkable less for the total effect
than for some of the individual voices in
it. Rhythm was gained at the expense of
smoothness, the class pausing at the be-
ginning of every phrase to wait for their
leader to sing the first note.

In the college singing under Pembroke
Arch after the ceremony 1922 first sang
their class song. Written by their Song
Committee to the tune of “O, Wert Thou

“Bryn Mawr, with wisdom’s living fire
Through toil severe thou bring’st us
. That helps us up the rugged way
And leads us on to greater height,
Bless what is good of mind and heart

Varsity Dramatics will be continued
this year by unanimous vote of the Un-

of a group of three short plays to be
given on December 13th and 14th. The
Plays chosen at a meeting of the Asso-

proval of President Thomas and the Eng-
lish Department, are: The Six Who Pass
While Lentils Boil, by Stuart Walker;
The Merry Death, a translation from the
Russian Evreinov, and A Night at an inn,

Nominations for stage manager will be
made by the Varsity Dramatics Commit-
tee, consisting of A. Moore ’19, chairman,
D. Pitkin '20, H. Hill ’21, and C. Skinner
’22. The election will be at the next meet-

students will be admitted frée and a

board an alphabetical paper file will be

M. Cestre Opens Course at the Sorbonne
A course in American Literature and

of intellectual interests the same close
and cordial relations between France and
the United States that are now binding
the two republics in other ways.
M. Cestre, who was last year’s Ex-

SHOULD SEE JOY IN LIFE, SAYS
L. KELLOGG AT VESPERS
“Things always look better on the other
side of the road,” said L. Kellogg ’20, last
Sunday at Vespers. We are so apt to be
discontented here in college, we think
that having offices constitutes success,
and so when big things are not thrust
upon us we shirk responsibility in small
things, she continued. The cure for this
is to “laugh and battle and work,” with
the end of the road in sight. The men in
the trenches say that they have learned
to see the stars and they are going to be
disappointed in us if we have-not found
joy in living in times like these—if we
have failed to see the city at the other
end of the road.

nouncements made by the chair:
Students are required to return from
Philadelphia, when wun-chaperoned, not
later than 7.45 on weekdays and 8.15 on
Sundays; when chaperoned, not later
than 9.45. No excuses will be given for
missing this train. Students are re-
quired to be in the halls of residence by
10.30. The only exception to this rule is
when students have been in Philadelphia
at the theatre or a dance. In such a case,
by notifying the warden in advance and
by complyingywith the Self-Government
regulations, us may enter after 10.30.

The book in question is a collection of

“It was Canada which first set the ex-

supposed to be accurate chronicles of the
