'Varsity Banjo Club.

The trials of candidates for the 'Varsity Banjo Club, held Monday and Tuesday evenings brought out an abundance of good material. The ten men taken on for further trial all show considerable ability and can doubtless be worked into a good club. The new men must call at 2 Hilton's at 7 o'clock this evening, for their new music, as rehearsals will begin almost immediately.

The following were taken on for further trial:

Banjeaurines - E. D. Mulford '97, E. L. Millard '98, N. Perkins '98.

Banjos - A. S. Knudsen '96, J. Harrison '96, F. F. Lamson '97.

Guitars - G. Gray '96, H. G. Hooper '98, H. E. Pickering '97, D. J. Fales '97.
