One of the prettiest St. Patrick's Day
parties among social circles last week
end was the one for which Mrs. Chaun

cent oriues, were joint hostesses, at
the latter's homo on Center street. Ap
propriate decorations were used in ad
orning the various rooms, and dainty
refreshments, in keeping with the Irish
resuvai, were servea. Fifteen guests
enjoyed the gracious hospitality of the
two charming hostesses.

the students Is unlimited. But the real
reason for the wealth of songs is the'
custom of holding an annual Fresh-j
men Glee. Each year four new original
songs are added to the list, and care .s
taken that these songs are of nauue
fittings for various occsisions and sea
Several changes in the rules made
the glee different this year from what
it has been in the past. A committee of
upperclassmen were appointed to se
lect the type of song, and for this year
they decided that all the songs must be
rally songs, suitable for singing at ral-!
lies and games. For this reason all of
the songs were lively as well as tune
ful. Decorations of the glee have al
ways been one of the most interesting
features, and this year the freshmen
class did something original in the
way of decorating the armory. The In
creased number of students in the uni
versity made it necessary to enlarge
the stage, and at the same time in
crease the interest in the contest. Can
you imagine a hundred and fifty wiu

Very pleasant indeed was the after-
noon spent at the home of Mrs. M. C.
Halvorsen, 1434 Ferry street last Wed
nesilay. The occasion was the monthly
business and social meeting of the
members of the Southeast Circle of the
Ladies Aid society of the First Metho
dist church; As a pleasant coincidence
it happened to be the birthday anni
versary of Mrs. George W. Eyre, so
the delicious refreshments served by
the hostess were in the nature of a
birthday dinner. About 15 members
were present and enjoyed an exceed

Sponsored by the ladies of the Illihee
auxiliary, the pageant "The Awaken
ing of Spring,' 'in which Mrs. Ralph
White will present the children of her
dnnclng academy April 30, will be one
of the season's choicest offerings.
The Grand opera house, in which
the pageant will be presented In two
performances Friday evening April
30, and Saturday matinee, May I has
been donated by its owners. The pro
ceeds of the attraction will go toward
furnishing a children's room In the
new hospital. .
For several years Mrs. V lute has
treated the nublic. each sprmg, to s
rare a performance of this nature as it
is possible to witness, and each suo-
ceeding season sees her list or admir
ers lengthened. Lovers of the art of
dancing acknowledge her rare ability,
and her junior and senior classes are
the largest of any such classes in the
city. True to her standard, Mrs. White
is preparing an elaborate und artistic
setting for. the presentation ot the
pageant, and the indications are that it
will excell anything of this nature ever
given by local talent here.

A most beautiful piece of ait. Revealing the highest class workmanship in the con
struction and finish of the dainty case. The "all wood" sound chamber reproduces the
true tone as produced by the artist. If one were to place their hand on the soumi
chamber of the Sonora. one could feel the sound vibrations just as one can feel them on
the sound board of a piano.' A phonograph with a part tin sound chamber would sound
like a piano with a tin sound board.
This is only one of the superior qualities of the Sonora, it is a pleasure for us to
demonstrate and we will be glad to tell you further of its numerous advantages.
