ILLINOIS DAY CELEBRATION
FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
On the Platform of the Auditorium of the University of Illinois is raised a high dais, on which are two seats, one a little lower than the other. In front at either side are groups of seats. Steps go down from the Platform to the central aisle. The Music plays a Processional March. From one side there enter the President and Deans of the University of Illinois in their academic caps, gowns and hoods. From the other side there enter a group representing Governor Ninian Stewards, Governor Shadrach Bond, and other leaders of the 1JHnois Constitutional Convention of 1818. They go to their seats on either side at the front, and sit down. When the Processional March comes to an end, the President of the University rises.
Men, Women of the University, My fellow-members of the Faculty, And Students in these various College.
