at a swimming-supper party
from 3:30 to 6:30 at “Mordell

and by 4 o'clock the party was
in full swing. Many of the stu
dents and faculty members went
in swimming, ' while others
strolled around the grounds or
through the house, which was
open to every one. The lovely
gardens and "linger-nooks”
were explored and enjoyed by
every one. Those who went to
the house were lost in admira
tion of the fine paintings and
statuary, and were fascinated
by numerous other articles of
interest.
A delicious supper was
served, picnic-fashion, at 5:30
in the garden, after which came
a frolic in which every one, stu
dents and faculty members, par
ticipated. Groups were ar
ranged for such, gay childish
games as “Farmer in the Dell,”
“Three Deep,” “Pop the Whip,”
and “London Bridge Is Falling
Down.”
At 6:30 the girls returned to
Meredith regretting that such
an enjoyable evening had to
come to a close.

formation on her subject.
She discussed the work in the
light of its three phases. First,
there is the welfare work among
elderly people. If they have no
home or are incapable ofvtik-
