be a splendid opportunity to hear these

better material than ever before, I be-
on the part of lo- lieve they will give a program that

DRUIiDS ELECT ELEVEN MEMBERS

The Board of Commerce of Ann Ar-
bor has decided to work in conjunc-
tion with the university and munici-
pal authorities in caring for the large
number of visitors who will be in the
city during Jubilee week. It has
already appointed a number of com-
mittees to take care of the work.
The committee on hospitality, of
of which H. W. Douglas is chairman,
will make it a business to see that all
distinguished guests secure comfort-
able and homelike rooms at the various
hotels. The committee on accommo-

dations, headed by George J. Burke,
will endeavor to obtain a list of those
people who would be willing to take
roomers for the week, and will also
urge upon the hotel and restaurant
keepers the necessity of- making spe-
cial preparations for the occasion. The
Detroit, Jackson, and Chicago electric
railway officials will be visited by the
transportation committee, and an at-
tempt will be made to induce them to
improve their service while the visit-
ors are in town. They will also urge
the local liverymen to make an earnestI
attempt to care for the expected
crowds.
This activity on the part of the Board
of Commerce has the support of the
city council. At its last meeting a res-
olution was passed which called on the
park board, the police department, and
Lt board of public works, to do ev-
erything possible for, the comfort of
the visitors. The police will be espe-
eially vigilant in protecting the city
guests, and several extra men will be
on hand.

located for more than one third of the
senior civil engineers and offers have
been tendered many others. A large
per cent. of the jobs are with railroads
and construction companies in Detroit,
Pittsburg, and New York, while an un-
usually large number have also been
placed in government positions. Prof.

ing department, has received numer-
ous letters from firms stating that they
have several Michigan men, and want
more of the University's men in their
employ.

seniors, but has procured promising
offers for men who have had a few
years of experience.
