mencement is being centered aboutthe
week-end of June 7-10. Activities be
gin today with Class Day Exercises

to the fact that the University has
secured two speakers of national re
putation and wide experience to de
liver the priricipal addresses. The
baccalaureate sermon on Sunday will
be preached by the Reverend Dr.
James E. Freeman, Bishop of Wash
ington, noted Episcopal clergyman.

CAMPUS SURPRISE
RETURNED ALUMNI
The University has set aside four
dormitories on the campus to accomo
date the alumni ; who are returning
to the Hill for Commencement.
Alumni will be placed in these dor- Transf ormalion of South Cam
mitories so that the members of each
class will be together and will also be
near members of other reuning classes
with whom they were in college.
In the first section of Old West will
be the Classes of '79, '80, '81, '82, and
'83. In the middle section will be
members of '99 and 00. The Classes
of '02 and '04 will occupy the last

section of the building.
The first section of Old East has
been set aside for alumni from mixed
classes. The Classes of '18 and '19
will occupy the middle section of this
building and '20 and '21 the last sec
tion.
Returning alumni each year find
changes about the campus which
strike the note of incongruity and give
them a feeling of strangeness. . This
year there are fully as many changes
since last commencement as usual.
The so-called "triangle" of dormi
tories has been made into a second
quadrangle with the completion of I

three dormitories of that group have
been given the names of Lewis, Gra-
