New Haven, Conn., June 10, 1925.--Festivities in observance of Yale's two hundred and twenty-fourth commencement will begin officially on Saturday night with the presentation of a Dramatic Club play. They will continue through the next week, concluding with the Harvard boat race at New London on Friday.
"L'Aiglon", the drama of Edmond Rostand, is the play that has been chosen by the Dramatic Club for presentation on Saturday night. The performance will have nothing to do with the new Yale School of Dramatic Art, headed by Professor Baker, and is being presented by the Yale Dramatic Association unaided. The translation used will be an original one prepared by Basil Davenport, a Yale Junior.
Dr. James Rowland Angell, president of Yale University, will deliver the Baccalaureate sermon on Sunday, June 14. The annual meeting of Yale in China will be the most important event also to be held on Sunday, with the announcement of the Yale men who have been chosen to teach at the Yale school in China next year.
