see how the University of Wisconsin
is proliferating as the demands of our
society increase and change becomes
necessary. There is a bracing climate
here as the University moves to meet
the challenges of twentieth century
life under the leadership of its 14th
president, Fred Harvey Harrington. A
return visit to the campus will give
you an opportunity to see how it is
being made over with the addition of
new  buildings. And, of course,
alumni will want to renew their ac-
quaintance with the timeless aspects
of the Wisconsin campus: June is the
time when Lake Mendota, Picnic Point,
the Willows, and the tree-shaded
walks of Bascom Hill are at the height
of their beauty.
  Many alumni activities have been
planned for the weekend, beginning
on Friday, June 7, with the Half Cen-
tury Club luncheon honoring alumni
who have been graduates of the Uni-
versity for fifty years or more. This
year, the Class of 1913 will be in-
ducted into this select group of fifty
year graduates. On Saturday, the
Alumni Day Dinner will be held in
Great Hall of the Memorial Union.
President Harrington will be the prin-
cipal speaker at the dinner which will
also feature the presentation of the
"Alumnus of the Year" award.
  On Sunday and Monday, the em-
phasis will be on this year's Com-
mencement, the 110th in the history
of the University. Such impressive
events as the Honors Convocation, the
President's reception, Twilight Band
Concert, and the impressive Com-
mencement ceremony will add an air
of pageantry to the weekend.
  Alumni are encouraged to make
hotel or motel reservations early, as
space is at a premium during the
weekend. The Madison Chamber of
Commerce will supply a list of local
motels and hotels on request. Parking
is a problem on and near the Univer-
sity campus, but visitors may secure a
special permit at the Information win-
dow on the Park Street side of the
Memorial Union.
  Make your plans now to be in
Madison on Alumni Weekend and at-
tend the many activities highlighting
the climax of the University's regular
academic year.
