The third and last banquet of the season given by the University Masonic Club, took place at Prettytnan'sdining rooms on Satnrday evening last and was attended by the members, and hoDorary of the clnb and members of the Masonic fraternity in the city to the number of about 80. It was one of the pleasantest and most enjoyable affairs that it has ever been our good fortune to attend. The program was in a measure an impromptu one, no one knowing whether or not he was going to be called on to respond, and it was therefore delightfnlly informal. F. H. Holzheimer acted as toastmaster (he says it was bis first attempt bul he did it like a veteran at the business) and he did not allow the long program to lag or lose any of its interest for the lack of a timely snggestion or a witty rem ark. Toasts were responded to by Dean H. B. Hutchins, Dr. A. C. Niohols, Prof. E. F. Johnson, Hon. A. J. Sawyer, Prof. A. Ziwet, Thomas Orr, H. G. Prettyman, H. B. Dodsley, George Blnm, Elmer Beal, T. W. Mingay, and the following active members of the olub: I. J. Truman, C. F. Watkins, O. D. Edgar, W. B. Murdock, M. R. Sturtevant, C. B. Turnbangh, C. A. JVIanning, B. C. Morse, R. J. Covert, G. H. Clotnentson. G. P. McCollum. B. T. Riley, O. P. Cole and W. P. Harlow. Most of tbem were good, short speeches, but the one that will live longest in the memories of those present was that of A. J. Sawyer, who gave a resume of what Masonry was 34 years ago, when he flrst became a meraber of the order and what it roeant to a man to be a Masón in those days. He alsp spoke of the antiquity of Masonry, and when he ïnentioned that he was afraid he was talking too long a time, he was met with vooiferons cries of "go on." It -was a fine banquet and everybody catne away feeling that it was a good thing to have been there.
