Tho warm (if not cordial) re- ception tendered Mr. Colfnx that even- ing, however, hits probably cain-cd a change in his opinion of the boys. It seems that, in his school-hoy days, the former Vice-President joined n college fraternity, but was unfortunate In his selection. This society is represented al Iho University, bulls not popular among tho student community. Mr. Colfax, to please tho boys, sported the society bittlgo during his lecture, nnd afterwards re- paired lo Ihc society hnll to shako hands nnd lako lunch with Iho boys.
