be held for the election of-officers and
the appointment of a committee to
have charge of the fortieth' reunion.
The time from 3:30 until 5:00 p. in.will
be devoted to an informal visit among
ourselves and with our friends from the
classes immediately before and imme-
diately following our own who may be
present in Madison on that day and
who will be cordially invited to meet
with us, during the 'hours LAST
'STATED,'"at Mrs. Carpenter's home for
the renewal.of old-time acquaintance-
ship. If the afternoonis favorable this
portion of the reunion program will
take place upon the. beautifl lawn of
Mrs. Carpenter's, home looking out
over Lake- Mendota - and -will close
prompitly at five o'clock. e
  Miss Mary Hill, a82 and Mrs. Mae
Johnfson I   nEvans,"'87 will be at home to
the members of the classes of '82 and
'87'at'the Kappa Kappa Gamma House,
not far from Mrs Carpeinier'st home,
on that afternoon from' 4:00 to 6en00
'O'clock and it is believed that many of
thewmembers of '87 will desire to avail
thenmseves, of the hospitality of Miss
Hrill, and Airs. Evans.
  After'' eareful consideration of the
matter-the 'Reunion 'Committee deter-
mined that,. AS AT PRESENT AD-
VISED, it is not best to arrange for any
program of entertainment extending
beyond the afternoon hours just men-
tioned. However, if there seems to be
ta somewhat general feeling among
those who are planning to attend the
reunion- that . further. entertainment,
features for the evening 'should also be

arranged, that can still'edn byth
Committeea .A number of the mem-
betrof "87 will o e icn attendance atthe
reunion with younger members of
theirCfamilies and, will no doubt wish
to attend, with the ysounger element,
the class play which-takes place that
evening. Still others of our memnbers
will. 'no doubt wish to have the evening
available for individual social engage-
ments of one sort or another. Further-
more, it should be borne in mind that
we hope t -hat every member of the
class who is present Monday at the re-
union and can possibly do so, will plan
to remain for the alumni dinner which
takes place on Tuesday evening. Of
cours~eour class will be seated at one
table that evening which will give us
another fine opportunity for conversa-
tion and such degree of gayety as prop-
erly pertains to a thirty-fifth reunion.
So far as Monday evening is concerned it
is thought quite likely that 'a consider-
able number of our members might ar-
range in a quite informal manner to
meet at some convenient place to
spend that evening together. The
Committee invites and will be pleased
to receive-the suggestions of members
who- are planning to attend the reunion
as to whether or not any definite enter-
tainment features shall be formally
planned for Monday evening, June 12
-such as an auto drive with picnic sup-
per at some convenient spot, or a boat
ride upon one of the lakes, or a dinner.
at some-convenient place in 'the'city.
   Up to the- present time responses
 have been received indicating the inten-
 tion, or' the hope to be present a~t the
 reunion on the part fabout fifty per-
 sons including a sm all~group_ of wives,
