Delphians Plan To
Aid J. C. Student
In order to add to their Houston
Junior College scholarship fund, the
Delphian Assembly will sponsor a
benefit bridge party at the River
Oaks clubhouse on the afternoon of
April 28, according to Mrs. Alex
Clark, president of the assembly.
The scholarship funl was begun in
1930 during the term of Mrs! A. B,
Foster as president, and the first
girl who benefitted from it was
Christine Fitzgerald, who has now
completed her junior college requirements and is a student in the College
of Industrial Arts at Denton.
The fund is given each year to
some deserving girl student who is
worthy of the opportunity, and in
need of the help, and is derived
each year from the interest of the
accumulated money. It is to add to
this accumulation that the money
is being raised from the bridge party.
Tickets for the affair will be sold
at 50 cents each, or two dollars a
[table, and can be obtained from
any of the following officers of the
Assembly: Mrs. Alex Clark, president; Mrs. B. E. Kenyon, treasurer;
of Mrs. Robert Voigtlander, publicity chairman.

Now You Tell One
AS DID OUR DBAR PROF.
"Say, professor," I said as I sat
sipping tea with my friend Professor Hopanwiggle, "that stunt that
St. Louis man pulled when he had
a couple of lions turned loose on an
island so he and his friends could
have a lion hunt, sounds like one of
"Yes," replied the prof, "only I
did mine on a larger scale."
"Tell me about it." I pleaded, sensing another one of the famous Hopanwiggle yams.
"Well," began the professor, "I
have always felt the urge to hunt
big game every since I won the rat
catching contest for the championship of Cashaw Corners when I was
"Last year, I got a chance to buy
the menagerie of a standard circus
quite cheaply. It included 30 tigers,
10 elephants, 7 giraffes, 13 snakes,
and 55 lions.
"Well, I had the cages brought to
my 100 acre island, and invited a
few of my best friends for the hunt.
I had barbecue pits dug so we could
have some goood barbecued lion.
"Well, sir, I had things done up
right. Everything pointed to a gala
day. The weather looked fair, and
things looked promising.
"I was supposed to meet my
friends at the spot we had selected,
but I had some business to attend
to that made me a little late. I saw
that I couldn't arrive at the meet

so I decided to take a short cut
through the woods. Well, I started
out in high spirits, whistling at tune
as I tramped on.
"Suddenly, however, I realized that
I was lost. I tried to follow my back
track, but soon decided it was a futile effort. The sky was suddenly
overcast, and I could not see the sun.
I had heard that the moss grew only

there was no moss.

knowing in which direction I was going, when I heard a terrific roar. I
