organization will bo closely observed
by the members of .the. other blafesea
and if it proves successful it may bo
adopted by the other classes. The

promoting all class functions. It will
aid in tho selling of. tickets for all
dances and be a means of inducing the
member's of the class to attend clatia

REGISTRAR REPORT INTEREST
HAS INVESTIGATED COMMENCEMENT
Shows Change In Commencement Dttfc
In old Records Mid-Winter Com .
mencemente and Sum
Registrar Harrison kair prepared
some interesting statistics with re
gard to this year's deilnqueuclon m
the university. Last year the uverog'e
delinquency of the fraternity members
in tho university was 16 per cent This
year It 1b but 11 per cont, a gain of
four per cont. Tho delinquency of
tho wholo university for the preceding
years has averaged 11 per cent It 16
how 0 per cent In reality ft is some
lower than ovon this. This is duo t
the fact that tho average for tho p-o-coding
years was based on tho schol
arship of both mon and women, whllo
this year only the non-fraternity men
were a vo raged with tho fraternity peo
ple. This leaves tho women student
out and as, they are generally con-nu-ered
the better students they would
no doubt lower tho per cent
As a result of somo questions on the
day commencement has been hold In
the past, Roglstrar Harrison has gono
back through old catalogues and re
gents' records and dug pp tho follow
lng history. No dates could be found
as ,to commencement day in some of
tho earlier years. No record of tho
matter seems to have Veen' kept Of
courso for two or three years after
tho university's establishment In 1877
no students wero graduated. In 1877
commencement took place" on Thurs
day. Two yoars later this was changed
to. Wednesday as it was thought it
might bo better to' "have It earlier in
tho week. But this was wnrso then
beforo, and in 1890 it was cbaugp'd
back to Thursday, whero it has been
since. This year will be tho thirty
ninth annual graduation.
Thero havo been fourtot-n mid-win-ter
commencement!). The first was
during the winter of 1806-97. . Thero
havo been sovonty-flvo graduated at
the end of the first semester.
Tho first summer school graduation
was held Friday, July 26, 1907. There
way no rogular commencement exor
cises held, tho graduates merely call
ing at tho chancellor's ofllco and re
ceiving their diplomas. Now, howovar,
regular exercises aro held each year.
