Dr. Angeli's address was on the "Propulsive Forces in the Clirfstian Life." He spoke of the ehurch as the friend and promoter of learning and called attention to the fact that the overwhelming majority of the greatest scholars since the Christian era have been men of pronounced Chnstian character. In conclusión he urged upon the graduates the neeessity of adding to their other preparations for life "that spiritual preparation which surcharges a human life vvith something of divine power and molds the character into the likeness of the one perfect character." MEDICAL CLASS DAY. The medical elassday, Mouday morning, was not well attended, owing to the rain, but it proved a very eujoyable affair. George H. Conklin, of Battle Creek, glorified the profession in nis poem, "Vis Medicatrix." Miss Christina K. Anderson, of Greene, Ia., read a witty class history and Dr. Will L. Griffin, of this citv, told the many opportunities for advancement now oöered the physician in the class oration entitled"The Outlook."

The brilliantly illuminated areh way in front of the rnaiti eutrance to the hall,wherealmostinnumberableChinese lanterns lent a pleasing effect to the sceue, told that the senior reception was in progresa Tuesday evening. Tickets for this had been in demand all day. Under the new rules, for the ürst time, visiting members of the alumni found dimculty in secunng tickets. The rooms were not crowded as usual. The music for the occasion was excellent and the floor was vvell Slled with üanceis. The senior reception always is a brilliant affair and this year proved no exception to the rule. The absence of the alumni was bo wever marked. The committee on refreshments provoked considerable uufavorable comment by denying admissiou to the refreshment re om to guests who came üve minutes after the moment designated on their tickets, although the tables were not fllled. [t was hardly the exhibition of a hospitable spirit to guests to require them to go around with watches in :heir hands orgo without refreshments. Mention is made of these little minor details that future classes may profit by it and keep the senior ïeception what it is aad lias been- oue of the main features of couitnencement week. The dancing programme cousisted of thirty nurabers ani was well arranged and the d meers greatly enjoyed the evening. ALUMNI DAY. A very small number of the alumni were in attendance. The ïainy weather detracted much from the meetings. The oration, which was delivered bf Floyd B. Wilson, '71, a prominent New Vork City lawyer, was a very scholarly and instructive oue, eutitled "A Neglected Science,'" in which he gave most excellent reasons for studying the science of finance, and making it a part of the University course.
