President Lowell's trip through the middle southern and western states, which commenced on May 2, is now over two-thirds completed, and the return journey from Denver, the most western city visited, begins at noon today. The trip was undertaken to bring to graduates in the West news of Harvard's activities, and to extend to them and the colleges visited the good-will of the University. Speeches have been made in numerous clubs, in Pittsburg, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Omaha, Colorado Springs, and in Denver. Among the colleges visited are the four exchange colleges, Beloit, Colorado, Grinnell and Knox. President and Mrs. Lowell will arrive in Kansas City tomorrow morning, and will remain until Thursday night. Friday and Saturday will be spent in St. Louis, at the annual meting of the Associated Federation of Harvard Clubs, which will mark the close of the trip.
The meeting of the clubs will be held under the auspices of the St. Louis Harvard Club which has arranged a very attractive program. The regular annual business meeting will be on Friday morning; that afternoon an automobile trip will be taken into the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, and in the evening will be presented a musical play especially written for the occasion. On Saturday will take place a picnic and the annual banquet. President Lowell will return Monday, May 25.
