Title

The Spider 1913 "The Old Maid's Club"

Description

This spread in the 1913 yearbook is focused on the "Old Maids Club" which was created in retaliation to the "Anti Co-ed Club." The image for the Old Maids Club shows a young woman sitting while there are pests around her that appear to be small men with swords. Beneath that image is information about the club; their founding day which is a day before the Anti Co-ed Club, their favorite flower, a cactus, and their mascot which is a porcupine.
