The Elks celebrated at a social session Wednesday and one hundred and fifty were guests at a stag supper. Ann Arbor, Jackson and Ypsilanti form a glorious trio, and a bout of merriment is the continuous program of the evening. Fifty Elks carne from Jackson, which team did the initiation work for seven. Ten was the elected number, but three came from Milan and came late, so didn't get into the line of skirmish. Exalted Ruler James Boardman occupied the chair. After the initiation was the banquet, and the deer shot by the Emil Golz party furnished venison for the supper. Frank Joslyn of Ypsilanti was toastmaster; Judge Newkirk, Charles Ward and James Bach and several Jackson brothers, responding to the toasts. There was an almost continuous program of music furnished by the Star Mandolin club and the Elks quartet. German songs filled the night with revelry and festivity was everywhere.

The fact that only $1,000 remains to be subscribed for the fund of the new building in the Henning block added greatly to the rejoicing of one of the most successful social sessions held by a successful social order.
