SCHOOL Mr. Herbert Gruber Has General Manager of Export and Import Board of Trade of Baltimore as Special Guest Speaks on "Bills-of-Lading." Mr. Herbert W. Gruber, Lecturer in the course in "Ports and Terminals'* at the School of Foreign Service of Georgetown University, had as a special guest on Tuesday evening, March 18, Mr. William Brittain, General Manager of the Export and Import Board of Trade of Baltimore, Md. Mr. Brittain gave a very instructive talk on "The Origin, Development and Functions of a Bill-of-Lading." He differentiated between statute and common law and showed how customs led to the establishment of common law out of which grew the bill-of-lading. He said that the bill-of-lading of itself is not a contract of carriage, but a contract of relief of reliability of the carrier; that it is not a negotiable instrument the same as a bill-of-exchange; that a bill-oflading is negotiable only when legally secured; and that it is not a receipt, but acts as such and also indicates agreement to carry. He explained the different kinds of bills-of-lading. As responsibilities of carriers increased, they increased the number of clauses in the bill-of-lading relieving them of that responsibility. He also explained the effect or control _ of the Interstate Commerce Commission, Harter Act, and the Transportation Act on the Bill-of-Lading.

FOOTBALL BANQUET FOR COACH LITTLE Varsity Club Introduces New Coach to Hilltoppers at Function Held at University Club Last Monday Night Coach Little Addresses Members. At a banquet tendered the new Hilltop Football coach, Lou Little, by the "G" Club of the Blue and Gray University last Monday night the new mentor expressed his sincere wish that all the University cooperate with him in placing Georgetown among the paramount colleges in the football world. Mr. Little explained that he would put forth every endeavor to accomplish this end and felt positive of success if he received the support not only of the participants in the game but also of the entire student body. The City Club was the scene of the affair which introduced Mr. Little to Georgetown. Cy Cummings tendered a few introductory remarks and was followed by a brief talk by Mr. Waldron, president of the "G" Club in Washington. Mr. Little comes to the Hilltop from the gates of the University of Pennsylvania where he showed up well as a man of football ability. He has had much experience in the coaching game and from all indications success on the gridiron will be Georgetown's next season. FR. NEVILS' TOUR TO BE CONTINUED Vice-President of University Returns to Washington for Short Stay Speaks at Foreign Service School. Fr. W.

GEORGETOWN WINS CORNELL DEBATE Hilltop Team Composed of Brennan, Rice and Burke Conquer Ithacans Splendid Debate Marks Brilliant Victory. On Friday evening, March 22, Georgetown won the decision of the debate with Cornell University, held in Gaston Hall. Georgetown, represented by Mr. Joseph B. Brennan, Mr. John T. Rice and Mr. J. Gibbons Burke defended the affirmative of the question, "Resolved, that the Volstead act should be revised." The Cornell debaters were Mr. R. F. Howes, Mr. A. J, Keefe, and Mr. Levitan. The judges were the Hon. Josiah A. Van Orsdel, Associate Justice of the Court of Appeals; Hon. James F. Smith, Associate Judge of the Court of Customs Appeals ; Mr. Gilbert H. Grosvenor, the President of the National Geographic Society; Mr. Joshua Evans, Vice-President of the Riggs National Bank, and Mr. Gus J. Karger, former President of the National Press Club.

The Rhode Island governor was graduated from the Georgetown Law School in 1910, and was one of the honor students of the law school at that time. Large Graduating Class. Plans for the commencement exercises are under way and, according to present indications, the number of graduates will be the largest in the long history of the institution. For the law school, the June commencemen will have an additional significance, as it will witness the graduation of the first senior class in the new day school. The law school has broken all previous records during the past year with more than 1,200 students enrolled.
2 PATHFINDERS CLUB HEARS B. F. SAUL Prominent Washington Realtor Addresses Club at Second Meeting Excellent Talk Well Received. On Sunday evening", March 23, the Pathfinders' Club held its regular weekly meeting in the Hirst Library. The speaker of the evening was Mr. B. F, Saul, president of the B. F. Saul Realty Co., and prominent Washington business man, who addressed the club on the subject of the real estate business as a field for the college man. "The subject of real estate," said Mr. Saul, "can be discussed from many different angles, offering a wide range and variety. In a brief, informal discussion of this subject, it is difficult to decide just where to begin and just where to end. It can be handled from the economic standpoint, the legal or technical standpoint, or from the standpoint of a business endeavor. Time does not permit a very comprehensive or adequate treatment of either of these various phases. There is, however, one angle from which this subject can be discussed briefly, without injecting too many details or technicalities, and that is the professional aspect of the real estate business." He then gave a rapid sketch of the recent developments in the real estate business, recounting the efforts of farsighted leaders in this field to raise it to a professional plane and in particular the work of the National Association of Real Estate Boards along this line. Starting fifteen years ago, this association has grown steadily, until today it is represented by 500 local real estate boards, has a membership of upwards of 20,000 real estate brokers, and exercises a tremendous influence on the business in all sections of the country. "Realizing the responsibilities and obligations that rest on those engaged in real estate practice, the original organizers of this National Association conceived the idea of a definite set of rules of practice and adopted a code of ethics as the first step of the national movement among real estate men. This code of ethics must be accepted by every individual member in all parts of the country, and his membership in a constituent iocal real estate board presupposes that he is conducting his business in accordance with the code of ethics adopted by the National Association." Donahue's Pharmacy Drugs, Soda, Cigars, Cigarettes, Stationery and Toilet Requisites Mr. Saul then launched into a discussion of the real estate business in general ; its aims and ideals; its problems and possibilities; its sacrifices and rewards. "One of the peculiarities of the real estate business, and which applies more particularly to the real estate business than any other, is that the periods of depression are more frequent and more lasting. Over a period of 30 years, 60 per cent of the time has probably been, unprofitable and men in business of this character have at times been hard hit. Forty per cent of the time has been prosperous, but periods of depression occur every few years which cause salesmen to drift back into other classes of salesmanship. While periods of depression affect all classes of business, they are felt less in those lines dealing in commodities that are used in every-day life, such as food and clothes, than in a class of business dealing with investments." Concerning the real estate business as a field for a young man just starting out in the world, Mr. Saul said: "A broad knowledge of the business in general is most essential and it would be most advisable for a prospective broker to spend possibly a year in each of the rent, mortgage, sales, and insurance branches of the business." And again, referring to the periods of depression that particularly characterize this business: "It is necessary, therefore, for any one entering this field to have the necessary amount of stick-to-itiveness to carry him through a period of depression if he expects to be able to take advantage of the prosperity that follows."

Franklin SS29 for Reservations Inter-Collegiate Dance GIVEN BY The California Ramblers Saturday, March 29 Informal AT Grand Ball Room New Willard Hotel Ten to one Three dollars per couple THE H O Y A this work, Mr. Saul continued: "In addition to ethics and the license law, there is another very important work being conducted by the National Association in its efforts to raise the real estate business to a professional plane, and this is its educational program. Through collaboration with educators and economists the National Association is developing a group of text-books to be used in educational work covering the subject of real estate. It has fostered and conducted scores of elemental lecture courses in various parts of the country through the co-operation of E. M. C. A. branches and other educational institutions. Several colleges have instituted extension courses covering the fundamentals of real estate, and two universities have actually added a four-year under-graduate course leading to a bachelor degree in real estate. As soon as sufficient text material is developed covering the technical phases of real estate practice, including appraising, taxation, zoning, conveyancing, and other such subjects, universities generally will install definite under-gradate courses to meet the needs of this growing profession." In concluding, Mr. Saul said: "There are rumors, of course, of certain sales- n= men who have started within the last few years who are reputed to have made a great deal of money without experience. This result, of course, has been because of abnormal periods and a great many sales have been made which were in reality simply taking orders. Many men who have been successful salesmen in periods of prosperity have drifted out of the business and into other fields in periods of depression. The most successful individual, however, in many instances is not the one of marked natural ability, but the one who realizes that success is the result of hard work and is dependent on his ideas of fairness to the public with whom he comes in contact."

One of the highest records in the School of Foreign Service of Georgetown University during the past semester was made by Mr. G. Zanetti, who, besides being a student in the School of Foreign Service, is a member of the Staff of the Royal Italian Embassy, assigned to the Commercial Counsellor. Mr. Zanetti was born in the United States in 1895, but was taken to Italy several years later. He made several trips back to the United States. Practically all of his schooling was gained in Italy, including the completion of high school work there, and also a course in the College of Agriculture, from which he graduated. In December, 1914, he volunteered for service in the Italian Army and was later promoted to be First Lieutenant in the Alpine Troops. He served in the army until a year after the Armistice. Shortly after this time he returned to the United States and entered the employ of an export and import firm in New York, with whom he stayed for about a year and a half. He left the employ of the export and import firm in order to take up a position with an important Italian bank in New York; from thence he came to Washington about a. year and a half ago to take up his present position at the Italian Embassy.

If the Senior Class of the City College of New York, in conducting a popularity contest, was seeking publicity, it has failed. It did win notoriety. In voting the "Decameron" its favorite classic prose work," "Artists and Models" one of the best current theatrical productions, and "If Winter Comes" its favorite novel, the class certainly evidenced either a startling sense of the humorous or an amazing viciousness. Disregarding the grave possibility of the fatter, no spirit of levity, however remarkable, can justify the proceedings. By permitting the results of their votings to be published, the have done a serious injury to their college and insulted the college man generally by belittling, in the public eye, his morals and his intellect. The Class of 1924 of City College may feel certain that it has won the pity of thousands of other classes for its puerile foolishness, if not the crown of their utter condemnation. The facetious assertions of the Cornell debaters with regard to prohibition, made during the course of the intercollegiate debate last Saturday evening, were very entertaining. How far is Ithaca from the Canadian border, Watson? The country is still sound at heart Andy Gump has not become embroiled in the oil scandal. The changes made by the National Collegiate Football Rules Committee will no doubt be received with much approval. The increase of penalties for time-out periods is particularly progressive; it will do away with a poor strategic forte of some of the "biggest blue teams." Our advice to Mr. Sinclair "Don't say no; say maybe." Georgetown joins her fellow institutions of learning in extending her felicitations to Dr. Charles W. Eliot, President Emeritus of Harvard, upon the happy completion of his 90th year. A remarkable character in every sense. Dr. Eliot stands out today as one of that small group pre-eminent as the foremost educators in the world. We but express the common trust when we wish the eminent President many more years, years as of those preceding, abounding with brilliant endeavors for the advancement of mankind. The enthusiastic welcome accorded Coach Little by the Letter Club at the University Club last Monday night is an earnest of the feeling that pervades all Georgetown. Mr. Little's response to the club contained sincere sentiments which, when put into effect next autumn, will produce one thing certainly a unified squad. The Reverend Father John J. Toohey, S. J., coach of the Intercollegiate Debating Team and the Chancellor of the Philodemic Society, has, in common with his charges, been receiving the congratulations of many for Georgetown's latest success in the forensic field.' Father Toohey has coached the teams of the College for the past twelve years and in twenty-two debates Georgetown has suffered but four defeats. The process of filling in the small valley at the northern extremity of "The Walks" is preliminary to the completion of a new athletic field at that point. It is not too late to take an active interest in the many medal contests "of the season." MORONIC. The rise of the moron has been one of the most striking of recent phenomena. Morons as a whole yet remain unclassified. Mr. Mencken lumps them all under the general head of the American People. As they become better known they will doubtless be separated into college morons,, Main Street morons, etc. As to what a moron is, apparently he is a person who refuses to accept your views of the universe, whoever you may be.

While attempting tq extinguish the blaze under the grandstand a few days ago, the intrepid Jay Gibe thought it would be a good opportunity to interview the manager of the Baseball Team. Joe Charles was found between snow drifts attempting to pick the foul balls. With a boyish smile and twist of his cap he submitted to the interview. The usual remark of "having nothing to say" has by this time lost all of its charm except a certain triteness and truth, so Joe didn't use it. He merely walked off and pretended to look over a list of proposed games. When asked to explain Baseball, the manager began to unlimber his tongue ' and told this story of his own personal experience: "When I hit the home run, and was rounding fifth base, Walter called 'Foul.' I went over to Walter, climbed off my bicycle and said 'Walter, why did you call that ball a foul?' And Walter said, 'Why, Joe, it went too far over the centerfielder's head.' So I gave him the fifty United Cigar Coupons and " But Joe's life is not all play. He is not on the diamond every afternoon, sleeping in the sun. Some afternoons he may be found in the cool recesses of.north Four, energetically and startlingly, even amazingly, awake or asleep. Brooklyn has not as yet become a habit with him, although he does have some doubts as to effect of New York upon the minds of the Literati. The other day he was heard to remark that although New York was near Brooklyn. * * * But just. then Jack Keating of New Jersey, U. S. A., walked in and jealously began its green eyed rain of daggers. It is rumored that Joe received his i early education in the Polo Grounds, I although he prepped in the Yankee I Stadium. He is the inventor of the I Fielder's Choice, the Niblick, the Mask : and the Gate Receipts. When the Big Leagues open he knows all the players. He calls Ruth 'Babe' and Cobb 'Ty.' Very I well known.- He even calls Landis I 'Judge.' Joe is one of the firmest believers in I Spring Practice. He contends that train- I ing in the early Fall is a trifle too late I for any College'Team to begin its Base- I ball Campaign. He is also one of the I most prolific writers on obtuse angles I of the games the world has ever known. I His books: "Bunts and How to Bat I Them," "Second Base, or Halfway \ Home," "Short a Short Shortstop" mark him as one of the type of authors who knows his subject inside out. There is a story persisting that Joe has been able to have a team work the "double steal" with only one man on f base. It was asked him if this is said with foundation. He admitted that as yet it had not occurred to him but promised to include it in the Northern trip. From this interview it would seem that Joe is all Baseball or sleep, but such is not the case. He has been known to study, eat, sleep, laugh, talk, jest, shave and keep out of the Blimp. The carload of satire recently ordered from the Nathaniel Foundry Company has not as yet arrived.

A BULL FIGHT. It is Sunday afternoon in Seville, five o'clock of a scorching day with tickets in the comtra. We stroll casually to our seats in La Plaza de Toros, which was an immense circular theatre surrounding the ring. A high fence or barricade separated the ring from the first seats and in this enclosure the attendants were stationed and perhaps it was for the closely pursued bull fighter to take refuge. A trumpet blares forth and the fight is on. The procession march into the enclosure to salute the president. First comes the Guardias or police, followed by the brilliantly dressed Matadores, Espadas, Banderilleros, and the Picadores mounted on scrawny, lifeless, worn-out cab or hack horses. The procession spreads and,another shrill blast announces the entrance of the bull. He was a mighty animal, lithe of limb and perfect in form and full of fight as he came leaping and snorting into the ring., He tore madly at the capeadores, who took refuge behind one of the barricades; the purpose of this was to hold his attention while the picadores sidled around the ring to a point where they could attack the bull with their long pices. Their plans went astray, however, and the bull tore madly at the first horse, goring him badly and then tossed him as if he were a feather over his head. The poor horse was left with his entrails dragging and laying promiscuously around the ring. The bull, not being satisfied with one, quickly gored two more to death, one of which the picador was under. He was carried off the ring, a hero in the eyes of the spectators, but mortally wounded. It is not unusual for the same horse to meet six bulls in the course of a fight. The bull, after having lacerated all the horses in the ring, took notice of the Banderilleros, who came forth and tossed banderillas into the shoulder of the bull. If the animal should be rather tame, banderillas loaded with fireworks are stuck in him and as the flames singe into the flesh the bull bellows with pain and ranges and charges furiously upon those who come near him. After the picadores and the capeadores and the banderilleros have tortured the bull until he is weak, the matador steps forth with great pomp and ceremony. With a slender blade and a fiery red cape he plays with the bull Until he has him in the correct position, then with a mighty lunge he sinks the blade to the hilt down through the shoulders of the weakened animal; he staggers a moment, then with all the peace and glory of uneven battle he slowly wanders to the barricade to die. If he had put up a good fight, the mass call for his ears, and at the consent of the president the matador cuts them off and throws them to the bloodthirsty crowd. Posada became the idol of the people that day, for with one stroke he had killed the bull, and, as was the custom, he was raised on the shoulders of the crowd and carried through the streets, a hero. We again adopted the custom of the Spanish and one would find us in the same seat, fight after fight. I must admit that I only saw two killed at the first one, for I became weak and left; but later we enjoyed the thirst as well as the Spaniard, and with each fight we learned more and more of the fine points of the game, and even we had the desire to become matadores, and in our desire we had the privilege of visiting a farm or school and trying our skill.

Mr. Reitzel explained the working of the Board of Review which passes on aliens who are trying to enter the United States when there is doubt as to their right to enter, and gave an interesting account of the. many ways which the Chinese aliens evade the provisions of the Exclusion Act.

6 BOWDOIN STARTS HILLTOP GAMES Somewhat Crippled Maine Squad Will Display Its Ability Here Next Monday Afternoon Local College Nine Primed for Contest. THE H O Y A Though badly crippled by the absence of its coach, Ben Houser, who is out with a dislocated hip, and the loss of services of three veteran outfielders, Bowdoin College's nine will make its southern trip next week fully confident of its ability to give all of its opponents the stiffest kind of opposition. The Blue and White diamonders will open Georgetown's college season next Monday. The Friday prior to playing in Washington, Bowdoin will be in action against the Navy. Frosh Eligible. The absence of a one-year or Freshman ruling at Bowdoin means that the Pine Tree State aggregation will be materially strengthened by the presence of several newcomers in their ranks who are practically sure of either securing a regular berth on the nine or at least of making the southern trip. It is expected that the catcher's shoes will be filled by Gil Vaux, '27, who has played for the New York Athletic Club, and is one of the Freshmen showing up so well. Les Blake, '25, will probably be second string catcher. The only two pitchers who are sure of making the trip are Larry Southwick and Stanley Robinson. Both of these men have shown that they have a lot on the ball, although Robinson has been slowed up somewhat recently by a slow heel; Gray and Sibley also are almost certain of making the trip. Although these two will probably go as pitchers, Sibley could be used as an outfielder because of his hitting ability, and in a pinch Gray could be used as a catcher. The remaining pitcher will likely be either Rideout, Stalford, or Horace Hildreth. Stalford was set back a great deal recently by a severe illness. G. U. Line-up Undecided. Though Georgetown has been outdoors practicing now for a period of several days. At the time of writing it is almost impossible to give out any definite or even probable line-up in view of the many changes that Coach O'Reilly is daily making in a wise way. Several vacancies stared him in the face at the outset of the campaign, and to properly fill these it is essential he employ this means. Hence, the starting line-up will hardly be made known to Hilltoppers until the time the initial game begins. All of the Blue and Gray men are apparently in line shape and are anxious to get going. Homer Jenkins, southpaw, Ken Jones, Ed Tabor, and McCarthy, all veterans, along with the sensational Don Brennan and promising Frank Gillespie of the 1923 Yearling nine, are ready to twirl at a moment's notice. Clyde Sukeforth of Washington, Maine, big Jim Cunningham and Jack McGowan are among those from whom the backstop will be selected., For the past few days the "Silver Fox" has been trying out Paul Mudd, last year's outfielder, at the initial sack, along with others. Whether he will continue there is problematical. O'Keefe is also making a strong bid for the honors, as is Vega, '20. Richie Ryan, by virtue of his spectacular playing with the Frosh last spring and his early season showing this year, looks like a safe occupant of second base. Ellie Urann should encounter little difficulty in again playing shortstop. At the hot corner Federici, Quinn, and Kerwin are battling it out warmly. Mike Donovan and Jim Sweeney are also prominent among those bidding for infield jobs. One certainty on the nine, however, is Captain Eddie Murphy, veteran slab- Bider, who will once more be seen roaming around the left garden in his usual dependable manner. Alberts, a newcomer from Maine, and Ed Driscoll, '26, of New Haven, popular Jack Hagerty, football ace and former cub outgardener, Art McDonough, Burke, and Murray, a local lad'of much fame, are those from whom the two outfield positions will be covered by. Bowdoin Infield. For the most part the make-up of the visiting outfield is fairly well established. Jake Aldred of Lawrence will probably play first, Mai Morrell second, and Captain Rupe Johnson shortstop. For third base it is a toss-up between Barrett Nichols and Dave McLaughlin. Although Captain Johnson is without doubt one of the best pitchers of the Maine colleges, it has been wise to change him to shortstop because of the lack of men for that position. He is one of the best hitters on the team. This will be no new position for him, as he has had considerable experience there playing summer baseball. At the first of the year it appeared as if Bowdoin would have the best outfield of the Maine colleges, and one of the best in New England. But it was only an idle dream. Asa Small, one of the three veteran outfielders back, has been called home owing to his parents' illness. Dave Needleman, who has covered left field for the past three years, has left college, and Dick ("Red") Jones could not come out because of a recurrence of a knee injury sustained this year in foothall when playing Colby. Fat Hills, one of the few experienced men on the squad, will probably hold down one of the positions in the outfield, where his experience will be very valuable. Lawrence Ranney, on account of his batting ability, is the only other man sure of a position in the outer gardens. Tlie remaining position will probably be filled by either Fish, Daggett, Griffin or Harry Hills. With Vaux, Ranney, and strong candidates for places on the team, the Bowdoin first-year class will be well represented in the make-up of the team, and HEAD COACH LOUIS LITTLE New Coach of Georgetown Varsity Starts Spring Practice forcandidates this week. it is equally apparent that they will give a good account of themselves if given the oppoitunity. If Mai Morrell should have to catch, a change in the infield would be necessitated. Fourteen men will make the trip, two catchers, four infielders, five pitchers, and five outfielders. After playing Georgetown, Bowdoin will journey to New York, where they will try conclusions with Columbia. CALIFORNIA RAMBLERS TO GIVE DANCE. The "California Ramblers," orchestra extraordinary, will give an intercollegiate dance this Saturday evening at the New Willard Hotel beginning at 10 p. m. A comfortable crowd of the "younger set" is expected to enjoy the melodious strains of these musicians, famous for their Columbia records and as entertainers on the stage. This engagement will mark the final appearance of this orchestra in Washington for some time to come. GEORGETOWN WINS DEBATE Continued from page 1 harm. Mr. Rice showed that it was a failure because it had aroused the resentment of_ many law-abiding citizens through its odious provisions and the circumstances connected with it. Mr. Burke suggested that the enforcement act be revised to permit the sale of beverages with 2.75 per cent of alcohol and so give the people a non-intoxicating drink that they would be satisfied with. The strongest of the arguments of which the Georgetown men dispose! in a series of animated and vigorous rebuttals was that the type of liquor to be permitted by the new act would be intoxicating and therefore forbidden by the constitutional amendment. Gaston Hall was almost completely filled by the supporters of each university, who enjoyed the clash of arguments on a question that was popular enough to be understood and to be of interest to all. The Hilltop Freshmen defeated the Tech High baseball team by a 6-to-2 score, Monday in a well-played game on Varsity field. CAREME CONCERT SUN."

The subject for the evening's debate was, "Resolved, that Congress should adopt a uniform divorce law." The affirmative was upheld by Messrs. Thiel and Blessing, and the negative by Messrs. Gaffey and Gillan. On account of the vitalness of the subject, a most interesting debate was enjoyed by the members of the society.

Daly, tee and Wholey, was appointed for the coming month. Mr. John Dennis Shea, '26, was elected to the society. The regular meeting of March 17 being postponed on account of the feast of St. Patrick, was held on March 19 in the Philodemic Room. A well prepared and a most interesting debate was held on the subject, "Resolved, that a third party would be beneficial to the United States." Messrs. T. Haye's and J. Wholey supported the affirmative, while Messrs. E. Snell and J. Miniter defended the negative of this question. The affirmative was awarded the decision by a very close margin, and Mr. Hayes was chosen -as best speaker. After a short criticism by Mr. W. Gillan and with a few appropriate remarks by the Rev. Chancellor, the meeting was adjourned. P. C. O'BRIEN '24 IS WINNER OF QUICKSALL MEDAL. The contest for the Quicksall medal was held last Sunday evening in the Riggs Library.

The plays selected this year were "Othello," "Anthony and Cleopatra" and "Coriolanus." Out of a large number of contestants, Mr. P. C.

Thursday evening, March 20, the Gaston Debating Society met in the Philodemic Room and discussed the question, "Resolved, That the compensation due to World War Veterans should be adjusted by the enactment of a Bonus Bill." Messrs. William Corbett and Christopher Clark upheld the affirmative side of this question while Messrs Alexander Bruinini and John Wise defended the negative. The question was capably and enthusiastically debated, and was of great interest to the society. The society awarded the decision of this excellent debate to the affirmative, and elected Mr. Corbett the best speaker. In the extemporaneous speaking after the main debate Mr. Holmes Clare was voted the best speaker. The interest shown by the -society in the extemporaneous debate is manifest by the fact that every member of the society took part in it. "LITS." The weekly meeting of the Literary Society was held on Monday evening in Room L. Mr. Castellini talked on "Tobias Smollett," who is characterized as "a vulgar writer, fond of horseplay and rough farce, but possessed of a vein of coarse, rich humor, and original genius." Mr. Kozak followed with a critique on Lawrence Stern, the author of "Tristram Shandy," and the creator of inimitable "Uncle Toby." When the subject was opened to the floor, a lively discussion ensued. M. E. HORTON, INC. WHOLESALE GROCERS & COFFEE ROASTERS Office and Salesroom, C St.S.
