Ivy Day, a University tradition that dates back to
1889, will have a new look Saturday. i
Festivities will take place on the lawn between the
Sheldon Art Gallery and Architectural Hall. In recent
years the program has been held just north of Ferguson
The program will be moved up to 10 a.m. starting
with a concert by the University Band and concluding by
mid-afternoon with the tapping of Mortar Boards and
tackling of Innocents.
Both the Innocents, senior men's honorary, and Mor
tar Boards, senior women's honorary, joined the Ivy
Day program in 1905. Members of the Black Masque
Society, now Mortar Board, first masked their new mem
bers in 1906.
Members of Innocents in their colorful long red robes
and Mortar Boards in black and gold attire roam the
grounds in search of likely members.
In typical feminine fashion, Mortar Boards tap their
their new members, but Innocents make dashing plunges
for their choices.
Infact, they often receive instruction from the foot
ball coaching staff on ideal tackling techniques. Each
Innocent assumes the responsibility for tackling his suc
cessor. Other Ivy Day activities include the coronation of the
May Queen, men's and women's sing, presentation of
scholarship and activity awards, and, of course, planting
the ivy by the presidents of Innocents and Mortar Board.
Master of ceremonies at the 1965 Ivy day will be Dr.
Curtis Elliott, Regents professor of economics and insur
ance. Lorraine Morris will be Ivy Day soloist. A senior in
music, she sang the lead in the 1965 opera "La Traviata."
She is a member of Mu Phi Epsilon, music sorority.
Children in the court, youngsters of former members
of Mortar Board, are Colleen Ann Holloran, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. William Holloran; Ann Louise Gourlay,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Gourlay, and Scott Douglas
Keene, son of Mr. and Mrs. David. Keene.
This year's Ivy Day schedule includes: 9:45 a.m.,
Carillon; 10, Band Concert; 10:10, Mortar Boards and
Innocents enter; 10:15 Chancellor gives welcome; 10:20,

a governing body and not
just another activity. She said
