PLAN OF THE CONVOCATION OF 1905 In the plan of the University Convocation for 1905 it was determined to depart from the miscellaneous program of previous years and to give the entire time of the meeting to the intensive study and consideration of one subject. To warrant this procedure, the subject had to be of vital interest and acknowledged timeliness to the educational and general public.

In conference with the Convocation Council it was agreed that the one topic which overshadows all others in public interest is the industrial and commercial development of this country and the training which should be given our youth in the public schools, colleges, universities and special schools to best fit them for the changing conditions which the 20th century is bringing upon us.

The subject seems naturally to fall into three subdivisions; viz, Education for Commerce, Education for the Trades and Other Industries, and Education for Agriculture; the arrangement of the program and the selection of speakers were made accordingly.

It was desired that the leading papers be followed by thorough discussion. Many of the leading educators of the State were asked to participate, but there was no preferment on the program and all were invited to give their aid, in the hope of securing practical suggestions for the use of our school and college curriculums.
