professors will join with the stu
dents in the annual holiday.
The morning program will, take
place on the university campus,
north of the administration build
ing, and will be conducted by
the senior class. As this will be
the last appearance of the senior
class before the school, it is theit
desire to make it as impressive
ix possible, and i'ti will be done
in the following ways: The class
song, which will be selected by
the committee from all sent in,
Avill be rendered; the Class poem
will be read; the class gift will
bo presented to the university as

events will take place at tho uni

yard dash, quarter mile, half mile
and mile' runs, high jump, pole
vault, running broad jump, shot

ed with silver medals, second
f laces with bronze medals and'

meet, tlfc Iron Sphinx will meet
the; Spikes' in a championship
basball game. Then lunch will
be served, and it is planned that
