TION PERIOD TODAY.
Members of Fourth Year Class to Ap
pear in Solos and Readings In
In accordance with the usual cus
tom dating back several years, the
University Seniors will take charge
of the Convocation exercises this af
ternoon at 5 o'clock. The rule govern
ing these exercises is that only class
talent or something improvised solely
by the claBB may be presented. Ordi
narily the plan has been to give a
program in which members of the
class bake part Individually, each ap
pearing in a solo, reading, or some
thing of a similar nature. A peculiar
satisfaction attaches to this plan in
that it Is most nearly representative
of the class, and the program rendered
this afternoon will conform to this
Following are the numbers to be
given as announced by Miss Howard,
chairman of the committee:
Song "Scarlet and Cream" (Tune,
"Eton Boating Song")
Vocal Solo "Plantation Song" . . .

Vocal Solo 'In May Time"
Reading "Ldah".. Elijah P. Nicholson
May 10, a week from today, the
Juniors will occupy the Convocation
hour. From what is known at pres
ent, it is probable the program put on
by the third year people will resem
ble very much that of this afternoon.

WORK ON NEW UNIVER8ITY TEM
PLE BEING PU8HED.
Outside Decoration In Progress Plas
tering 8oon Finished Provision
for Escape In Case of Fire.
Those Interested In tho completion
of tho now Temple are much pleased
by the rapid progroHH now bolng made.
Tho outsldo structure has ben prac
tically dono for sovoral weoks with
the excoptlon of tho decorative work
upon tho capitals, and this Is now in
progross, tho contractor having im
ported a workman from Milwaukee
for it. Tho carving upon tho third
of the capitals Is now noarly com
pleted. Tho finishing of tho Interior of tho
building is alBo bolng pushed forward
rapidly. Tho ceilings of tho third
story have for tho most part boon
given tho flrst coat of plastor and
here a large amount of heavy steel
netting has been substituted for lath,
thus shortening tho time necessary
for work of this kind. All wator,
steam and plumbing connections are
In the building, tho wiring is dono and
tho telephone and campus light wires
are being brought over In a conduit
from tho Administration building.
Only one Are escape is placed in the
building, and this runs down the In
ner side of the north wing. Tho audi
torium will have a Are exit into the
alley from the ground floor. The gal
lory lias several largo exits in tho
roar, and these, together with tho
broad stairway, make ample provision
for safe escape in the case of Are.
Tho plastering will bo pushed for
ward and with good weather should
bo completed boforo tho end of the se
mester. It Is not probable tho perma
nent floors will be put In before tho
flrst of August, but these will bo prac
tically tho only big piece of work loft
after the completion of the plastering.
All floors will be of maple finished in
the natural color, while the fittings,
wainscoting and similar trimmings
will be of oak. The contrast of the
woods with the white wall will pro
duce a thoroly artistic effect.
The building will bo completed and
ready for occupancy shortly before
the beginning of the next school term.
