SCHILLER’S DAY

LINDE TO BE DEDICATED THIS MORNING AT 11 O’CLOCK

Extensive Program in German Poet’s Honor to Be Given Tonight in Memorial Hall.

In may be asserted with reasonable certainty that no German poet has been honored as enthusiastically by Anglo-Americans as is Schiller in the large number of celebrations marking the centennial of his death. Extensive preparations are being made in the University to produce a celebration which may be worthy of the high estimation in which the poet is held by this community, and the kind co-operation of local musicians is sufficient assurance of abundant success.
At 11:00 a. m. the “Schiller-Linde” will be dedicated. A brief and some-what informal program has been arranged for occasion, since the principal celebration is reserved for the evening. Not only the students of the University but citizens generally are cordially invited to take part in honoring Germany’s most popular poet on this occasion.
The program for the dedication of the “Schiller-linde” which will occur on the campus at 11 o’clock this morning is as follows:
