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.

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.
