The. inauguration will take •place nearly 10 months after- Boyd assumed office on July 1, 1968..

Included-in the inaugural celebration will be an address by President Boyd at the inauguration ceremony at 2 p.m. and a free - student inaugural concert featuring folk singer Buffy Saint-Marie. -■ > ...... The inaugural ceremony .will be held in Finch Fieldhouse and will be open to faculty, 'administrative staff- and students.

Immediately following the ceremony the entire University -community is invited to attend a reception in the University Center. Ticket information for the inaugural concert also will be distributed on a first call basis at a later date. Formal invitations were mailed this week to university and college presidents throughout the country. The letter requested funds that would otherwise have been spent on sending representatives to the inaugural be used to support programs for disadvantaged students at the various schools invited to attend the event. University funds which would have been spent on a formal inauguration will be directed at Boyd's request into a fund to assist disadvantaged students at Central. As much as $5,000 could be channeled to the special fund according to an administrative spokesman. In the letter of invitation Alfred J. Fortino, Board of Trustees chairman, stated, "Contem porary problems- highlight the urgency for an institution such as ours to concentrate its efforts and resources toward meeting the needs of all social and economic segments of our society. "Central Michigan University will, therefore, allocate the funds which would have been designated for the traditional formal inauguration of Dr. Boyd to a fund to assist disadvantaged students. "We hope that you will share the spirit of this inauguration with us. You may in fact, wish to direct the expense funds which may have been incurred ... to your own university's projects for disadvantaged students." Boyd assumed his duties as president of the University on July 1, 1968, succeeding Judson W. Foust who had held the position since 1959. Boyd served as vice chancellor of student affairs at the University of California, Berkeley, before being named Central's seventh president. 3 NEW ACADEMICS VICE PRESIDENT SCREENING COMMITTEE SET p. 2 VOL 49, NO. 45 iaan fite Central Michigan University, Mt.

Members of Alpha Psi Omega, honorary dramatics fraternity, will present "an evening of absurd theatre" this Thursday and Friday at 7:30 p.m. in Warriner's Little Theatre. The first play to be performed is Edward Albee's "The American Drean." According to Albee, the play is ".. . an attack on the substitution of artificial for real values in our society, a condemnation of complacency, cruelty and emasculation. It is a stand against the fiction that everything in this land of ours is 'peachy-keen' . . . The second play, also by Albee, is "The Sandbox." In this 14-minute-long play, the characters in "The American Dream" are placed in a situation different but related to their predicament in the first play. The "absurd theatre" is unique in that the same characters are used in both plays and are played by the same people. Tickets are on sale in the University Center ticket office at 75 centsfor students and $1.00 for non-students. <N ASSOCIATION IN CONCERT, sponsored by Men's Union will appear in Finch Fieldhouse Wednesday at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the University :, V^M_££i_ ««_. toy ever have lor any other concert" said Phil Schneider.
