Graduation exercises for the
University's Centennial Class
will be held at 10 a.m. May 10
in Memorial Coliseum.
President John VV. Oswald will
preside over the commencement
ceremonies, and Col. James Alcorn will serve as chief marshal.
Procedures for the ceremony
will differ from previous years
in an effort to "get more faculty
into the ceremony" and start
new traditions.
Members of the faculty in
the commencement procession
will be marshaled by other faculty
members for the first time this
year and the graduating class
will be marshaled by members
of the junior class. Banners of
the various colleges will be carried by a junior who will sit at
the head of each college section
and lead the march to the stage
for the presentation of diplomas.
Another new addition to the
program will be a recessional to
close the ceremony.
Following the presentation of
the diplomas, which may be contained in special folders in honor
of the Centennial Year, Dr. Osof UK Student Government,
