GREAT CUROWD SEES BIG EVENT.
Adorned with war paint, barn paint
and powder, and dressed respectively
in every color of the rainbow, with a
few extra shades thrown in, eleven
campus societies "pi-raded" around
the campus yesterday afternoon. The
procession formed between the engi-
neering arch and the flag pole and
started along the diagonal walk short-
ly before three o'clock.
One minute was :allowed each soci-
ety in which to give some "stunt" be-
fore the reviewing stand on the steps
of Memorial hall. Most of the organi-
zations devoted their alloted time to
singing distinctive songs and chants,

lined the walks of the campus to view

WITH THOSE OF UNIVERSITY
Facts and figures in no other man's
life dove-tail in so neatly with the
Commemoration Week as do those in
the life of James H. Cogshall, '62, for
many years a County School Examin-
er of Muskegon County. Mr. Cogshall,
who returned for the festivities yes-
terday morning, was born in the year
which marks the birth of this state
and this .instltution, 1837. He gradu-
ated in' the quarter century class of
sixty-two, and, to cap the succession

celebrate his golden wedding anniver-

time grad recounts many stirring tales
of the times when the men left class
rooms to engage in the struggle of the
