On the Thursday following we were en tertained by Mr. Whipp, a Portland soloist, who gave a good program of musical numbens. On October 28 two Hallowe'en parties given by the juniors and seniors, respectively, were held in the training school and the normal gymnasium. The evening of November 3 was the occasion of the joint meeting of the Vespertine, Del phian and Normal societies. The masque, "Pandora," was staged by the Delphian society and the debate and musical numbers of the normals were all very much appreciated by the audience. On account of an acci dent to the lighting system the Ves pertines were compelled to postpone their program, but it will be an event to be looked forward to in the future. On Friday, November 3, Mr. Starr, a regent of the Oregon Normal paid us a welcome visit and incidentally enlightened the student body on some of the laws which were on the bal lot. Miss Dinins, our third and fourth grade critic, gave an unusual chapel talk in the form of a Riley program by the pupils of her room. Each bud ding orator, reader and musician was heartily applauded by the students, for it was a treat all enjoyed. On November 4 the junior girls were entertained at tea in the dormi tory parlors.

Under his guidance our school is forging ahead in all ac tivities. .

Tuesday, November 7 is a red let ter on the calendar of the Oregon Normal school. The person who said bouquets are thrown only at those who have left us would have to change hip viewpoint immediately had he visited our school on that day. For. during the regular chapel period 420 students, in song and speech, showed their appreciation and love of the man at the head of our school. The alert, happy faces turned toward the. president's chair and the enthusiasm and good feeling which surcharged the atmosphere evidenced the heart felt spirit which was the inspiration of this expression of honor for Pres ident Ackerman. A huge lighted cake was carried in at the close of this enjoyable hour by Mr. Ingram, pres ident of the student body, who was attired in a chef's cap and apron. This concluded the students' share jn the festivities of the day and the annual faculty banquet was held in the evening in the domestic science department of the training school. There the excellent dinner and the witty speeches brought about a fit ting close to one of the brightest days the Normal has had this year. TOWN TOPICS Now is the time to see J. C.
