Ivy Day Festivities Move
The traditional location of

be changed next Saturday to
make way for progress at the
The Ivy Day ceremonies
have been held at the loca
tion north of the Old Admin
istration building at 12th and
R streets since the 1930's.
This year they will be held a
block west at 11th and R
streets because of the con
struction of the new $3 mil
lion Sheldon Art Galleries in
the old area.
The site of this year's cele
brations will be more historic,
according to co-chairmen Pat
Porter and Archie Clegg. The
site is located in the center
of four older buildings on
campus: Architectural Hall,
built in 1894; Brace Labora
tory, 1904; Grant Memorial
Hall, 1887; and Old Adminis
tration Hall, 1905.
The site is also surrounded
by a number of traditional
gifts to the University: the
first ivy planted in 1901 near
the present Ferguson Hail;
the stone sun dial, presented
in 1909; the drinking fountam,
called the "Fountain of
Youth," presented in 1909;
and the clock on Architectural
Hall, given to the University
in 1912.
63 Years
1961 marks the 63rd birth
day of the traditional Ivy Day
ceremonies. The first Ivy
Day, held in 1898, was called
a "senior play day.
Three years later the name
was changed to Ivy Day. The
