chrysanthemums will dominate the color
scheme and will represent the "Oldj
Gold ' of the lniversit s colors. The
custom of wearing yellow chrysanthe
mums of the "Golden Cbadwick" variety
has existed at the University for many

these flowers mature at Thanksgiving
time many months in advance. They
were set out by a local florist last June.
Following the Missouri-Kansas clash,
an informal reception will be held at the
home of President J. C Jones for all
students and alumni. Mrs. Jones wishes
particularly to impress upon the visiting
alumni and friends of the University
their welcome at this time, and is making
preparations to entertain hundreds of
Missouri "M men will have a ban
quet at 5 o'clock on Thanksgiving after
noon at the Daniel Boone Tavern. The
Homecomine nrosram will close with
fraternity dances, club smokers, and
theater parties. No formal entertainment
has been provided for the evening as the
Homecomers will want to be free to
participate in the shirt-tail parade and
visit their friends. For the visitors who
remain in Columbia over the week-end, a
dance has been planned by the Razzers
to be held at Kothwell Gymnasium
on Friday evening.
In addition to the regular program
planned for Thanksgiving Company I,
Fifth Missouri Spanish-American War
veterans will hold their tirst reunion
here on November 30. Company I was
recruited from University students in
1898 and served from May 10 to Novem
ber 9, 1898. Col. Milton Moore of Kan
sas City commanded the regiment, and
Maj. George H. English also of Kansas
Gty was captain of Company I. The vet
erans will hold a banquet at the Daniel
Boone Tavern in the evening.
They will have a small army of 200 men
decorating the gymnasium, the Presi
dent's home, the depots and Rollins
Field! All the electric lighting is under
their supervision. A design showing the
Tiger feasting on the Javhawk will be
shown in all the windows downtown on
the morning of the 30th. John Reese,
P. J. Zilles, and S. H. Hinkley have
charge of' all the construction work.
Owing to the fact that the program this
year is centered on Rollins Field, very
little decorating will be done on the Uni
A new wrinkle in wireless telegraphy
is being 'produced in the form of ampli
fiers which will make speaking audible
at all parts of Rollins Field. Amplifiers
have been used at the State Fair at a
cost of approximately $20,000 for con
struction and installation. Needless to
say that since most of the work is being
done by the engineering students, this
cost lias been reduced to praclicall) the
cost of tlie equipment. O. S. McDaniels,
C N. Nebel, and W. D. Cunningham, all
licensed wireless operators, have been
working night and day to perfect the ap
paratus for local use at a very small ex
pense. Through the kindness of the telephone
company, arrangements have been made
for telephone communication from all
parts of the field. Only by this means
will it be possible to direct and syn
chronize the different features of the
program. Electrical apparatus was need
ed in such large quantity as nut to be
obtainable from the University.
