     AN "UNUSUAI; BIRDj
     By. A.- J. GoEDdmENmrs)7
   Sixteen years ago', seven "07"

 E. .r. (   tStroke"s) Hubbard, "Manna-

 Anthony, and Ai.("ýAi"),Goedg'en
 made up the membership.
   Graduation  came   along,  and ,
 "i-ek" Loesch Started a roui irobin
 letter among the Seven members.
 This "robin" has flown over its na-
 tionwide circuit since the summer of
 1907, and is still as active a bird as
 ever. Its route includes Milwaekee,
 Chicago, Montrose (Colorado), San
 Francisco, New  York  City, and'
 Baltimore. It makes its circuit every
 six to eight weeks and has already
 traveled a million miles. It might -
 e said "the first million miles* are
 the hardest," as each year the "bird"
 is more deeply endeared to DC:2
 It has served to keep seven college
 chums in close touch as it seems only
 a -round-robin letter could do. The
 contents of the ,big envelope are
 always highly informal and very in-
 teresting. It contains everything
 from .one of "Louie" Reinhard's
 stories to a political discussion, or a
 report of some member's visit at
 Madison, .or a picture of "the
family."
  College' friendships are usually
the best of our e'ntire lives, so why.
not continue them systematically
by'means of "round-robins?"
