Pre-arranged Accident In Which, a
Reporter Cuts a Big Figure.
The farce comedy '-A Pre-arranged
Accident," was presented to a fair
sized audience at Grouse gymnasium
this afternoon by members of the
Buchtel college graduating class, as
part of the class day exercises.
The plot develops a series of
ludicrous mishaps by which a num
ber oi girls from tne Sagville semi
nary meet with a bicycle wreck,
caused by a reporter who hired a
butcher boy to run into the crowd
and cause commotion. The reporter
did this to get an interview with the
girls regarding seminary life. While
the interview was at its most inter
esting stage tho preceptress of the
seminary came along with a sketch
ing class, and frightened the truant
girls, who to escape her, climbed a
tree, as did also the reporter. By
and by when the preceptress passes;
the girls come down and the reporter
is invited into the parlors of the
seminary where another pleasant
time is interrupted by the preceptress
who dismisses him unceremoniously
from (he room.

reception and dance will be given by

center of the grove, au ideal spot fpr an
out-of-dooi performance. At about 8
o'clock tho president will attend the
glee club concert in College hall.
On Sunday morning a largo crowd
congregated about the residence of Mr.
TVhitiug, where the distinguished
guests are being entertained, and by the
time the party was ready for tho short
walk of two blocks to the church, the
streets were crowded with people. It
was an orderly decorous crowd, and
hardly a word was spoken by them dur
ing the eutiro journey. At tho Second
Cougregatioual church", where the Whit
ings attend, a much larger crowd had
assembled, and it -was only by deviating
and entering a siuo door tnat admission
was gained. Every seat was occupied
and many extra chairs and settees. The
congregation rose respectfully when the
president entered and- remained stand
ing uutil he sat down.
The president's pow in the body of
the church -was occupied, besides him
self, by Mr. Whiting, Mr. Allen and
Mr. Cortelyou, the president sitting
nearest the aisle. The others in the
party ocenpied a pew further front.

As tho seniors marched into tho
pretty little chapel before the arrival of
the president they made a very pretty
picture, each clad in cap and gown.
Thej took front seats iu the center
while President McKinley and the gen-,
tlemen of his party occupied seats on
the side. The ladies, including Mrs.
McKinley, decided that the day was too
warm for them to enter the crowded
buildinar. so they were driven to the
residence of Byron Smith near by, and
there they had a light luncheon and at
the close of the exercises rejoined the
gentlemen at the special car.
In the chapel hundreds of young
womcnJilled the auditorium while the
balcony was occupied by several hun
dred high school girls in bright dresses.
Upon the platform the college choir
was seated, a geuerpus sprinkling of
seniors in their black caps and gowns
contrasting prettily with the cool sum
mer dresses of the others.
After the president had been intro
duced by Mrs. E. S. Mead, the president
of the coliegCj lie entered the chapel,
the congregation remaining standing
uutil he had taken his seat. After an
organ prelude the college choir sang an
anthem, aud Rev. Dr. M. W. Jacobus of

The reception which awaited the vis

a few moments, while he shook the
hands of the people who clustered about
the window where the couplo were
seated. Mr. McKiuley leaned from the
car window and shook hands witn the
people and spoke a few words of greet

Over 400 people crowded arouud and
