The Detroit Sunday News-Tribune is responsible for the following story of an episode which is ├ętated to have taken place ia Ann Arbor : "A nobby-lookiug Delta Chi, with a uewly-purcbased white fedora and a braud uew pair of $12 tronsers, dropped iuto the Episcopal churcb the ether evenicg. He had never beeu to an Episcopal chnrch before- no iusinuations - and the services were entirely uew to him. During a certain part of the service it is ciustornary for the worshipers iii this chnrch to kneel. Snddauly and without any apparent warnfng everyone around hiru began to kneel, and our friend, not knowing what else to do, began to kneel also. But just tben he thought of those immaculate tronsers, so he hesitated a moment. Gluncing sideways out of the corners of his eyes, be observed that his neigbbor was presenting his tronsers from bagging ac the knees by using a hassock. 'Guess I must have one, too,' he routtered, aud spying a dark looking object under the seat - 'yes, thei.e it is. ' He oaught hold of it, but it naver budged. Bracing himself as best he could under the circurustances, he gave it a vigorous yank. Something catue this time, but it was a lady's shoe. Theu the lady, witb. fiaming face, turned and gave him such a withering look that the Delta Ch still trembles when he tbinks of his sadmistake."
