April 24. - New Opportunities for Women. Lecture by Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer, of Cambridge, Ex-President of Wellesley College.

This will be a Ladies' Night. As Mrs. Palmer sails for Europe in the summer, to be away a year, the privilege of hearing her speak will be all the more prized.

May 1. - Semi-annual election of officers and chairmen of committees. Reports will be given of the finances and work of the Union for the past six months. Plans for the summer and for next year will be announced.

May 8. - Strength and Weakness of Socialism. Lecture by Col. Thomas Wentworth Higginson.

Possibly this lecture will be given on another Wednesday of May, but unless prevented by ill health, Col. Higginson will address the Union on some Wednesday evening of the month.

May 15. - Subject is to be announced Lecture by Rev. Samuel M. Crothers.

Dr. Crothers is one of the University preachers at Harvard this year. He is a man of great ability and an interesting speaker.
