   in acknowledgment of the degree Justice Siebecker wrote the following
let- :
ter to President Birge on Feb. 7:
My DEAR PRESIDENT BIRGE
  Among the many messages that have come from my friends none has touched
me more
deeply or given me greater pleasure than your very kind letter conveying
your sympathy and
good wishes and telling me of the unexpected honor which my Alma Mater has
conferred upon
me. Much as I appreciate the honor conferred, I prize the.degree chiefly
because of your
assurance that it brings with it the respect and affection of the men and
women who make up
my Alma Mater.
I especially appreciate your reference to my work. If my service has been
such as to deserve
such reference by you, it is because of the nurture and training given me
by the unversty to
which I am so deeply indebted. May I ask you to convey to all who have had
a part in thus
honoring me my sincere appreciation of the honor conferred, and particularly
of the spirit that
prompted the taking of such action.
  It is difficult to find words to express to you the comfort and encouragement
which this
expression of affection and regard has-brought to me.
  With kindest personal regards, I am
                                                     Very faithfully yours,
                                                             ROBERT G. SIEBr.CKER.
