One warning which was left off the study card for the second half year (due today before 6 o'clock in University C) is something like the following:

"In case of the death of a student, his roommate or nearest relative must hand in his study card, with a statement to that effect, written legibly or typewritten, at University C on or before Tuesday, December 14, in order to avoid liability for the charge of $5 for late filling of the study card."

Harvardmen were pretty shocked three years ago when they found that to get many of their classmates on the telephone they would have to dial "ELI", but it seems now that to get the Boston office of either the A.F. of L. or the C.I.O. you have to dial "CAPITOL".

As yet Kirkland and Lowell Houses are the only ones to have blossomed forth with full size trees in their respective courts.
