" -r On r riday night the Juniors, held their annual banquet in the University Inn, and, despite the fact that Friday was the thir-j teenth and the tickets were SI. 85! . . i it is alleged that they enjoyed a" DI very delightful evening. The purpose of class banquets was shown by Mr. Fuller by reading- Mr. Chambers' editorial on the subject after the second course, and the banquet, if any, lived up to the requirements. Acting-Prcsiden Graham made the first speech of the evening with a plea for higher University unity and . class, ideals. Mr. Newsom followed with a state incut of the achievements and hopes of the Class. Dr. Greenlaw, our self-styled "Freshman Professor", spoke of the depth and richness of the historical associations connected with our old buildinirs and cam pus as contrasted with the new ness and up-to-dateness of other colleges where he had been. Mr. Tamraz began his response by apologizing for any breaks he might make in his English and the went ahead advocating- closet union between the professional and academic students. And so it went, Prof. Shicy, Mr. Moss, Frank Graham, R. T. Bryan, lloushall and Patv, each advocating- some pet reform and each giving- the class what it ex pected, a good speech. The chief reform and probably the most needed one was the con duct of students toward the girls in the Pickwick. Delinate steps were taken with the hope that some g-ood might result. The program, extemporaneous speeches, cigars and banquet lasted until after 1 A. M but who cares. Every one enjoyed everyone else and everything. DR. GREENLAW AT Y. M. C. A. Discusses Bible Simply as a Literature. Dr. E. A. Greenlaw spoke in terestingly at the Y. M. C. A. meeting-Tuesday night on "The Literary Value of the Bible." Dr. Greenlaw stated that the Bible contains all forms of litera ture, but this fact is not generally recognized because one does not read the Bible through so as to get an idea- of the whole book; and because the Bible is unfortu nately not divided according to the various forms of literature. e showed by illustrations from books of Isaiah and Job the fact that the Bible contains excellent drama. Dr. Greenlaw recom mended the use of Mollen's an notated books of the Bible as an aid in reading the Bible from both a literary and a religious standpoint. The address was much enjoyed. F. H.

One is A. Miolati, an Italian, the other Professor Charles II. Herty, head of the department of Chemistry in the University of North, Carolina Professor Werner says, in speak ing of his two investigations, carried out with Miolai, and Dr, Herty that "They constituted the best experimental foundation on which would be erected the hew structure of the constitution of inorganic compounds."
