which thus far ranks as the social event of the
season. There were some forty invited guests
present, including Misses Hafer, Holliday and
Laurie of Bellefonte, Miss Barr of Boalsburg and
Miss Redifer. The Cottage which is a model of ar
chitectural beauty, presented an invitingand home
like appearance, and made each and all feel that
they had come to spend the evening pleasantly.
The time was mirthfully employed in dancing,
playing games, and other social enjoyments.
Misses Moore, Meek, McElwain and Holliday
were the reception committee, and did much to
ward making this their maiden reception a suc

were served, after which the guests departed, re

The Sophomore team were dressed in their
evening costumes, and as they entered the recep
tion room everyone present was impressed with
the fine appearance made by them. Each Soph,
wore the class colors on the lapel of his coat, and
this had the desired effect.
Prof. Sparks gave the address of welcome, and
he voiced the sentiment of all present when he
said, that he hoped the good fellowship would al

inter-class football games came off upon the Col

Ist half which lasted thirty minutes. During the
first five minutes of the second half Cartwright

was rendered unable to continue the game. Being
thus greatly weakened the Preps decided to dis
continue the playing thus forfeiting the game.
For the freshmen, Dowler and Belt did good

tinguished themselves, both making a number of
very pretty runs. The teams lined up as follows :
