The monotony of College life was broken last week by the cold snap. The blizzard not only brought good ice, but also about four and oneinches of dry snow, which made excellent sleighing. The College crowds were very much in evidence. The different crowds formed parties for skating and sleigh-riding. One or two crowds undertook to do both during the same evening.

As yet no accidents have been reported, but it has been going the rounds that several of the Prep. boys lost their rubbers. No explanation has as yet been given. On Saturday evening a crowd under the management of Lee Bracken undertook to have both a sleigh-ride and a skate. After riding about town for some two hours they were driven to the Neosho river, where Chas.

Lawrence furnished the crowd with plenty of amusement. It was his first attempt at skating. He said he "only fell down when he wanted to." It was with great difficulty that he was persuaded to leave the ice, because he had become so fascinated with the sport. At a late hour they returned home. The party consisted of Misses Augusta Bradbury, Anna Ewing, Willa Wicks, Cecilia Lower and Maud Moser; Messrs.

Lew Hillis, Chas. Lawrence, Daniel Schaffner, N. C. and Lee Bracken. At Another crowd, consisting of Misses May and Bertha Taylor, Florence Piper, Ethel Huston and Molly McCully; Messrs.

Rudolph Hatfield, Ralph Cunningham, E. J. Scott and O. C. Loomis, enjoyed a sleigh-ride Saturday evening.

The crowd that has received the greatest attention was from Prepdom. It is not very often that Preps. do very much in a social way, but these young people have proved an exception. It appears they were the first crowd in College to secure a bob-sled," and their preparations were quite complete. They not only had the best outfit in town, but also furnished refreshments, consisting of peanuts, popcorn and hot tamales.

They were chaperoned by Mr. Edward Handslip and Miss Mabel Roberts. The party consisted of Misses Pearl and Mabel Hainer, Grace Vincent, Jessie Handslip, Fannie Ardery, Sue and May Holmes and Ethel Morris; Messrs. Harold Wiley, Robert Irwin, Bob Brooks and Howard Griffith. A At an early hour Monday morning quite a large crowd of men had formed in line at Lewis' drug store to secure tickets for Keene.

Here and there in the line could be seen a College boy who expected to get a seat where he would be able to see and hear this great expositor of Shakespeare. More than one person went away disappointed. Several persons were on hand at seven o'clock, and these seemed to hold orders for a goodly portion of the opera house, as one person took fifty seats and another something like thirty-five. By the time the eighth person in line arrived at his turn the whole middle block was taken, and also the best seats on the side. But the majority of people were so anxious to hear Keene that they were very glad for a place even among the "gallery gods." At Miss Helen Spencer, a member of the class of '99 in their senior preparatory year, and now living with her parents at Afton, Iowa, will be married to Mr.

L. L. Brown, on December 22. A On the evening of November 24 Miss Corinne Fleming, a C. of E.

student of former days, was married to Frank L. Bates at the home of the bride's parents in Lyndon, Kansas. Rev. D. S.

Hibbard, '95, officiated at the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. Bates will make their future home at Caldwell. Athletics.

BY R. FRANK HART. This is the season for gymnasium exercise. We ought to fix up our apparatus and strengthen our muscles. 88 The president of the Athletic association has been doing his part in trying to get the base ball diamond plowed, but one man can't do everything, and there seems to be a total lack of spirit among the rest of us.

Last spring our ball ground was too rough even for good practice work, and unless something is done it will be as bad next spring. There are no two ways about it; we must plow that field or else not play ball next spring. Our exchanges are filled with glowing accounts of foot ball victories. If every paper reflects the sentiment of its college, this game is as much in favor among students as ever. It seems strange that, while men who have played foot ball for years declare it harmless, other men who may never have seen a game are horrified that college men can be so brutal.

It is said that experience is the best of teachers; but for reasons unknown some people deny the teachings of experience in this direction. Yelps. BY C. H. EVERETT.

Little smacks of kisses, Little flakes of love, Make a Mr. and Mrs. To live on the above. st There were, in round numbers, 000 football men killed on the gridiron in Kansas the past year. A One of the Senior boys is in danger of being Maymed for life.

Did you ever see a colored church painted white? The fellow who is cracked isn't always the one that's broke." A certain Normal pianist when asked if she knew 44 Ben Bolt" replied, No; does he go to the Normal?" A fool can ask questions that twenty wise men can't answer." Bring on the twenty wise men. I'11 ask the questions." At A Freshman started out one day last week to take his girl out for a sleighride. Her father met him at the door with a shotgun; the gun didn't work, but the cutter went off unloaded. "If it's food you want, Go saw some wood," Said the lady, who was wise. The tramp replied: "I saw The wood as I came past, And how it hurt my eyes." HE Many clouds are settling over the Klondike regions this winter that have no silver lining.

One of the Prep. boys refused to join a sleighing party because the sleigh was too crowded. A Junior explains the editorial "we" by saying that an editor always thinks he is "so many."
