ALUMNI largely to enable any of the fellows in town in a transient way to attend them. It occurred to us that we might be en- abled through your help to spread this in- formation and invitation among the fel- lows while they are still abroad so that they will have it in mind when they ar- rive here. Will you be good enough to let me have the exact address of the Paris Union for University men which was es- tablished a short time ago, so that I may have -letter- posted-there.- --Perhaps -you can supply me with the name of the per- son who should be addressed there. Then I would like to address a circular letter to some, say a hundred or so, of likely fellows in the Service who could help pass this idea around among the others over there. Probably officers would be better able to do this than privates. Have you a list of commissioned U. W. men you could let me have? Perhaps you could offer some other suggestion? I would be only too glad to get it if you have. PHILADELPHIA By ERNEST RIcE, '08 The telegram from The Alumni Association announcing the death of President Van Hise was received late NEWS 95 in the afternoon of November 19. The newspapers were notified at once, some of them printed it that night, and all of them gave it generous space. The next day letters were sent to all the local alumni, and a tele- gram of sympathy sent to Mrs. Van Hise and family. A wreath was sent tothe funeral. The following-letter was mailed locally: To the Members of the Wisconsin Club: It is with the deepest regret that I in- form you of the receipt of a telegram from the General Alumni Association announc- ing the death of our beloved President Van Hise.
