Visited Us on Sunday and Picniced at the Park. At Relief park on Sunday the Turner and Schwabian societies of Toledo bad a picnic which was not only enjoyed by the visitors but by a large section of townspeople as well. The visitors arrived from Toledo at 9:30 a. m. and were met at Ann Arbor depot and escorted to the park by Otto's band add local turners and Schwabian societies. In the afternoon the Toledo Turnverein gave a fine exhibition of athletic exercises on the parallel bars, some of the feats performed being so good that they would have done credit to professionals. Twenty-four young ladies also did a very pretty exhibition of club swinging and marching, and a company of 20 young Turners did some fine marching and manual exercises. Singing by the Toledo Maennerchor, bowling, and other amusements were also indulged in the party leaving for home at 8:05 p. m. During their stay many of the visitors took occasion to visit the university grounds and view the buildings. The only thing that occurred to mar the pleasure of the day was the conduct of some of the young local ''sports" (?) one of whom was soundly thrashed for his ungentlemanly conduct.
