Luther Conant of Chicago Heads
Work of Arranging
Graduate Hopes to Form Society
of Early Alumni on Plan
of Tappan Reunion.
Alumni who graduated from the
University in the classes from 1855
to 1871, and those who attended
college here during that period will
take part in the Haven-Angell re-
union, June 19 to 22, it was stated
yesterday when plans for the gath-
ering were announced.
Arrangements are going forward
under the direction of Luther Con-
ant, '64-'66, of Chicago, who has
written letters to all living alumni
who attended Michigan during that
period. The reunion is an outgrowth
of the meeting of the 90-year-ola
"Tappan Boys" which was held last
spring during the commencement
and regular reunion period.
Visitors To Be University's Guests.
Those who attend the reunion
will be guests of the University dur-
ing their stay in Ann Arbor. They
will be furnished reserved seats for
the president's address, commence-
ment exercises, and the alumni
luncheon. They may attend the
,Class day exercises, organ recitals
and receptions as well as visit the
museums, libraries, and points of
interest on the campus.
Mr. Conant plans to establish a
club which will be known as the
Emeritus club.

He pointed out that the reunionj

union year.

"It is evident that by adding next

University and to the alumni. The
title 'Emeritus club' describes it ex-

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Mar. 25.
--(R)-The Illinois state senate
today passed the bill repealing
the state's prohibition enforce-

The bill, one of the shortest
ever enacted by the Illinois legis-
lature, would repeal the state
prohibition law and the, search
and seizure act. In effect it would
withdraw all state support from
the federal government in fighting
illicit 'manufacture and traffic in
intoxicating liquor.
