Last week the Nevele Club met with
Mrs. Barney. She proved a very charm
ing and also a very ingeneous hostess.
We were greeted at the door very cor
dially and handled a silk bag containing
beans, with the information that everv
time we used the pronoun ‘‘X” we
lost a bean, giving it to the one who
caught us first making the mistake.
The fun was o-n thick and fast. Mrs.
Harper contributed largely to the fun
and was honored with the prize indi
cating she knew how' to use the pro
noun “I.” One does not realize how
prominent a part the nomination “I^-’
occupies in our language until put to
the test as the Neveles were. Miss
Morrow showed her ability to speak or
not to speak and exclude the undesir
able “I.” She received first prize.

taxed most of us but proved an easy
mark for Miss Leila Newman, who re
