     Here's Complete
          Reunion Information
THE TIME: June 16-19
THE PLACE: Wisconsin's beautiful campus
THE OCCASION: Commencement-Reunion Weekend
THE PARTICIPANTS: Members of the University's "zero" and "five"
classes, all
    other Badgers who can be on hand for the festivities, and, especially,
the Classes
    of 1905 and 1930.
The reunion spotlight falls, as usual, upon these golden- and silver-anniversary
cele-
     brating Wisconsin alumni. Both classes have a number of attractive activities
     scheduled, with the 50-year graduates of 1905 being objects of special
attention
     as they are inducted into the Half Century Club on Commencement Day,
June 17.
 Both 25 and 50 year class members, moreover, will receive class directories
listing all
     known living dass members, with their addresses. This annual service
is provided
     by the Wisconsin Alumni Association.
 But other classes, too, have fine things being planned by reunion committees.
Class
     dinners and other social functions will be popular on Friday night (following
     the outdoor Commencement Ceremony at the Stadium in late afternoon),
and
     most reunion classes will get together for lunch on Saturday following
the
     Alumni Association's annual meeting in the Union.
 On this page are reservation blanks for both the annual Alumni Dinner on
Reunion
     Day, June 18, and for University Residence Halls lodging.
 The Alumni Dinner is always a standout attraction of Reunion Weekend, so
you who
     are planning to be on hand are well-advised to make reservations early.
Another
     popular all-alumni affair, the traditional Alumni Day Program, will
follow the
     dinner. The dinner is scheduled in Great Hall at 6:30 p.m., the program
at 8 p.m.
     in the Wisconsin Union Theater. There is no admission price for the
program.
 University Residence Halls officials remind reunion patrons that regular
registration
      desks at the halls are closed after 10 p.m. and suggest that the first
order of
      business in Madison should be checking into the dormitory. If your
arrival is
      after 10 p.m., the night watchman will have to be summoned to check
you in.
  The University again will issue special parking permits for certain areas.
In some
      areas ne permits wiil be needed-as at the Stadium and at dormitories.
The
      Union information booth on Park street will furnish parking and other
      information.
            Please clip and mail your reservation not later than June 10.
