Michigan's first University Alumni
day, when all lumni will be given an
opportunity to return to Ann Arbor to
see the University in operation, has
been set for Wednesday, May 2.
This announcement followed yester-
day's meeting of the committee on Uni-
versity Alumni day, appointed after a
meeting of the University senate held
last Monday. The plan has been tried
with success at Yale, Harvard, Colum-
bia, Princeton, and other universities.
Registrar Arthur G. Hall, who is
chairman of the committee, states that
arrangements for a program will be
made which will include inspection of
the University by the alumni, and a
gathering where administrative offi-
cials; faculty, and alumni may meet
to talk over the work of the Univer-
sity. It is hoped that this gathering
will be of benefit in giving the alumni
a better understanding of the present
work of the University, and in afford-
ing an opportunity for alumni to make
constructive suggestions which will
prove valuable in the administration
or work of the University. An oppor-
tunity for reunion will also be afforded
on the occasion, although this is not
the primary purpose.
May 2, the date set, is the day on
which the May Festival opens. It is
thought that the festival will be an
added inducement in drawing alumni
to the University.
GOTa SLEEPER TO LEAD
COMMITTEE FOR RELIEF
STATE ORGANIZATION TO RUN
Albert E. Sleeper, governor of Mich-
igan, will assume the chairmanship
of a general state committee which has
recently been organized in connection
with the Dollar-a-Month club, having
for its object the swelling of the funds
being collected by a commission for
relief work in Belgium. Prof. Francis
W. Kelsey is acting as chairman of the
The Dollor-a-Month club is organiz-
ed solely to help the Belgian children
who have been suffering greatly on
account of the war.gContributors
pledge themselves to give a dollar
each month until peace is declared.
This does away with spasmodic re-
lief and assures the commission in
New York a permanent income.
The commission for relief in Bel-
gium, with which the Dollar-a-Month
club is co-operating, has been the body
through which all the relief money
from this country and from practic-
ally all the other neutral countries has
been distributed. It is the only com-
mission allowed to work with the con-
sent of both warring sides.
The province of Liege has been as-
signed to the state of Michigan. There
are about 12,000 children in it.
