An informal meeting of persons interested in the study of German was held some weeks ago, and it was decided to appoint a committee to draw up a plan for the formation of a German Club. At a meeting subsequently held, a Constitution was drawn up and adopted. The Deutscher Verein is the name of the new society.
Meetings are held every two weeks on Thursday evenings. At these evenings, a paper is read, followed by discussion and by other informal exercises. The object of the club is the discussion of German life and literature. The officers of the Verein are: President, Dr. Kuno Francke; vice-president, F. W. Taussig; secretary, and treasurer, W. G. Thompson; executive committee, Dr. Francke. (ex-offieio), W. T. Talbot, E. R. Thayer.
