Under the authority of the act of incorporation, the Trustees have prescribed that all the male students, after their first term, shall wear the University uniform. The University cap is to be worn from the first. This uniform consists of a suit of cadet grey mixed cloth, of the same color and quality as that worn at West Point, and manufactured by the same establishment. Students can procure them ready-made on their arrival here. The University cap is of dark blue cloth, and is ornamented in front with the initials 1.1. U. surrounded with a silver wreath. Students will always wear their uniforms on parade, but in their rooms and at recitations may wear other clothing.
FINE ART GALLERY.
Citizens of Champaign and Urbana have contributed over $2,000 for casts in plaster and plastique of some of the most celebrated, ancient and modern statuary, to be selected this summer in Eome, Florence, Paris, London, and other great art centers. The collection will also include a large number of busts of celebrated men, and copies of architectural and other sculptures. The University already has a large collection of valuable pictures, portraits and photographs, of large size, of famous places, paintings and buildings, which will be increased by new purchases to be made in Europe. A beautiful hall nearly 60 by 80 feet has been set apart to receive these collections. The value of the fine arts in general education, and in their reactive influence on the useful arts, is just beginning to be appreciated in this country.
