There have also been a number of changes in the Junior and Senior schedules of the technical courses.

The trip was a financial as well as a musical success. At most places the houses were poor, yet every body that heard them was well pleased, which promises much for next year. The clubs were well organized and man aged. With one exception these are the first clubs sent from the College, and we should be proud of the record they have made. The pro gram as given on the tour was practically the same as given in their opening concert in the College chapel. The clubs comprised the following men: —A Handicap meeting took place ver Field, Saturday, April 28, at 2 P. events as follows : too yards dash. . 220 yards dash. 44 0 yards dash.
