THE BATTALION, College Station, Texas. Who was the first lieutenant who told his company to march straight up? Well, I guess it was the “ice cream blonde.” Mr. Robert Dinwiddle returned from the World’s fair last week and says he had a nice time. The first class would be much obliged to Mr. Dan C. if he would explain to them why he is so nervous when they are to gether in the chemistry laboratory. Dan C.—“Gosh! Do you people suppose I am tired of liv ing? Notbya sightl I am afraid you would smother me if you got half a chance with NH 3 or some such stuff. Some of you have made several unsuccessful attempts at it already. College Dpatnatie Club. On Wednesday night, October 18th, there assembled in one of the society halls, for the purpose of organizing a college dramatic club, thirty of the most talented young men of the college. The meeting was called to order and the popular young professor, W. B. Philpott, unanimously chosen as gen eral manager and F. R. Ross as secretary and treasurer. The following are the names of the members enrolled: W. B. Phil pott, general manager; F. R. Ross, secretary and treasurer; G. Abbot, Anglin, Bruce, A. Bittle, P.
