For, In nccordnnco with tho appeal

And this Is oxnclly whnt the fedora

"tt'e renllzo thoroughly," said Albert
Proas, mannalne director of the cnm.
falgn, "how much Joy Christmas toys

This morning the telephone nt the Child

This attitude. In tho opinion of Mr.

of the board had been sustained.

I could not sec with my two eyes;
And my two hands and feet were black
When I had thrown the covers hack.
I woke from sleep with gTeat surprise,
I thought at first that I would cry,
And then I thought, "You big boy, why"
If there is nowhere any light
Of course, you know, it must be night."
In all the rooms the family slept
While out of bed I softly crept;
My moccasins lay on the floor,
I put them on, felt through the door,
And all along the upstairs hall.
And touched the button on the wall
That lighted up the house below,
Wherever I might want to go.
id then without a bit of noise
I ran to see my newest toys.
There in the laundry each one lay
All ready to begin to play.
"You here! It's only 5 o'clock!"
The furnace man came in and said:
'Good gracious, boy, get back to bed I"

New System of "Cuts" at Bryn Mawr
Not in Favor.
Because the girls of Ilryn JIawr Col
lege have expressed themselves dissatis
fied with the new system of "cuts" which
went Into effect Thursday, Mlsa M. Carey
Thomas, president of the college, ex
plained the change after chapel exerclsej
"The system Is misunderstood," said
Miss Thomas. "The penalty is not as
severe as accounts have made It. No
ctudent will be expelled or barred from
examinations for 'cutting.' For a certain
number of absences from recitations and
lectures one point will be taken off the
term grade, and for 'cuts' above eight
each quarter, two points will be de
ducted." Although tho student body has been as
Mired that only girls with low marks who
innka "cutting" a habit will b In danger
of falling In examinations, the Ptudents'
Association Is said to be on the point of
making an appeal against the new system.
The girls prefe a rule similar to those
In borne men's colleges, where the num
ber of cuts allowed each quarter equals
the number of study hours which the
student has each week.
