Some 600 students from the Ag College Chorus, the Uni versity Singers, Madrigal Singers, Men's Varsity Glee Club, the two University cho ruses .and the University symphony orchestra participated. ft , . . Although "Diary" is a one set show, the technical plot is very extensive requiring people to handle costume changes and sound cues.

The schedule for turning in worksheets is: juniors and seniors, May 16; sophomores, May 17; and freshmen, May 18 and 19. Late worksheets will be accepted on May 20. Miss Laase pointed out that students not turning in their worksheets by that time may register for summer school on June 6 and for fall, Sept. 14-17. Accumulated Hours Cards will be pulled accord ing to the accumulated hours earned by each student and the order in which work sheets are turned in. Changes may be necessary in the student's original schedule, Mrs. Laase said. To allow for these changes and still make it possible for a student to have a workable schedule, she explained, stu dents must see that alterna tive courses and alternative sections in multisection courses are listed. Students must also fill in the bottom schedule part of the worksheet, she said. For scheduling purposes, she added, the Registrar's Office must assume when time on the schedule is left blank, a class could be scheduled at that time if necessary. If a student has followed these instructions and a work able schedule cannot be made, the Registrar's Office wilt call in the student for consultation, she said.
