delegates to the national Republican
convention were directed today to
"vote for Herbert Hoover as long as
he is a candidate."
The Republican state convention,
with more than 1,000-delegates pre-
sent, was a perfect picture of the har-
mony that had been pirophesied. De-

Wayne county delegation that objec-

The annual club reception and din-
ner will be held tonight in the Union.
The reception at which presidents of
higher institutions, deans of junior col-
leges, out of state speakers, and many
others will be the guests, will be held
at 5:30, on the third floor of the
Union. This will be followed by the
annual dinner at 6 o'clock for all
club members and their friends. Per-
sons who are intending to attend
must have secured their tickets, of
which additional ones will be on sale
at the registration desk, by 2:30
o'clock this afternoon. Tickets are
$1.25 apiece. The main address will
be delivered by President Clarence
Cook Little.
Following the annual dinner, the
all-state orchestra of 175 pieces and
the Ann Arbor high school chorus
will present a concert at 8 o'clock in
Hill auditorium. For the members of
the/ club, the admission will be by
badge, and the balcony will be opened
to the public.
But one special event outside the
tiegular proceedings has been planned
for the visiting schoolmen today. From
3:30 to 5 o'clock, the members of.the
Women's Educational club will enter-

bers of the club are prospective teach- I
era for next fall, the tea will give
both superintendents and students a
chance to interview the others about
teaching chances and questions.
Teachers To Visit Classes
Due to 'the cooperation between the
University faculty and the special
committee, arrangements have been
made whereby visiting teachers and
principals will be allowed to attend
fneshman classes on campus today and
tomorrow. Many of the club took ad-
vantage of a similar plan last year,
and it is expected that many more
will in the next few days. The main
object of the plan, according to the
letter sent out by President Little,
is to allow the high school officials a
chance to observe at first hand the
situations which their pupils must
face when they come to the Universi-
ty, keeping in mind the improvement
in easier transition from high school
to college.
Tomorrow morning, the annual con-
vocation will be held at 11 o'clock in
Hill auditorium, with Pesident Little
as chairman. The main address will
be delivered by Gordon Jennings La-
ing Dean of the graduate school at
the University of Chicago. The Uni-
versity classes at 11 o'clock, with the
exception of clinics, will be dismiss-

for those students who wish to at-
tend Lhe various meetings. Admis-
sion to the sessions is by badge only,
and these badges will be obtainable
free of charge at the Registrar's of-
fice, starting this morning. The badg-
es will admit no one to the dinner
without a ticket, but will gain admis-
sion to the 'main floor for both the
concert tonight and the championship
high school debate, tomorrow night, in
Hill auditorium.
