Classical Club Celebrates
Saturnalia With Party
The Saturnalia meeting of the Clas
sical Club was held at the home of

cember 8. The main feature of en
tertainment was the arrival of Mer

ing with their humorous contrasts of
nnclenl and modern times. Mercury
also brought to the club members
fortunes which the three Fates had
instructed him tn deliver. At the
alose of the program the president,
Margaret Tilghnian, in behalf of the
club, presented Dr. Price with a
leather brief-case. A delicious din
ner was served by the hostess.
