The newspaper account states that approximately 300 people attended Sunday's event, which concluded with the placement of a time capsule by the entrance of the new high school.

Robert H. Farber, DePauw's academic dean, is a 1935 graduate of the University. He was elected last year to the Commission on Colleges and Universities of the North Central Association.
