A number of exhibits will be displayed in College Hall showing some of the student activities, and explaining parts of the college program of interest to the public. Much of the preparatory work and the organization of the guide corps has been done with the assistance of the student body at large and the Student Executive Conmittee, which is the governing body for undergraduates. Student editors of The Catalyst have prepared a special edition of their newspaper to be given away to visitors, including a campus map, directory of building. 3 and also descriptions of various college facilities and activities. Parking l 1ill be available at many parts of the campus for visitors. Be-cause of 3 p.m. Sarasota Concert Band performance at the Ringling Museum, traffic at that time is expected to be heavy.
