Large Audience Expected
Previous convocation exercises have
always been marked by an attend-
ance that taxed to the limit the ca-
pacity of the auditorium. It is ex-
pected thaththis. year's gathering will
be no exception to the rule, especially
in view of the manner in which the
importance of the President's mess-
age has been emphasized.

GO ON SALE THIS MORNING
Although the story concerning the
informal party to be held by the junior
lits Saturday afternoon at the Union
specified that the limit of tickets sold

wishes it understood that an intro-
duction line will be one feature of
the party which will enable all girls

CLASS DUES DAY
With a total of more than $500 col-
lected by eight classes, Michigan's
first All-Class Dues day was a suc-
cess class treasurers stated.
The booth located in the corridor,
of University Hall at which the Se-
nior, Sophomore and Junior lits'
treasurers were stationed seemed to,
be the best location as more money
was collected there than at the other
booths. However, tables in the Li-
bary, the Law building, the Engineer-
ing building and elsewhere reported
larger totals than were expected.
Indications are that because of the
success of the collections that Class
Dues day will become an annual in-,
stitution at Michigan. The idea,
which was sponsored by the Student
council, appears to be the best solu-
tion for the efficient collection of
class dues, which has been such a
problem in past years.
HONORARY RHETORIC SOCIETY

Stylus, honorary rhetoric society for
women, elected two women to mem-

Maud Hindman, grad., and Marjorie

dation, and limited to 10 women.
