begin Thursday night, May 13, with a
reception given by the local chapter.
Most of Friday will be devoted to ad
dresses on the different departments,
and on Saturday the vice-presidents and

have some institute work. We want to
make Sunday the best day of the whole
Conference. On that day we are to
gather up the fragments and feast on
the good things that we have received.
