News of the Classes
       F. E. STEIN, though no longer as
       young as when he recited Greek
to Professor Carpenter in the City Hall,
still reads, writes and lectures without
glasses. In years he cannot turn back
the siderial timepiece, but h'e success-
fully does away with opticians.-J. S.
LEAviTr has been" troubled with his eyes
of late. He may be obliged to undergo
an operation. Otherwise he enjoys Los
Angeles as a residence more andlmore.m-
W. E. HUNTINGTON of '70 and his wife
have l'ft the rigors of a New England
winter for southern Califorria. The trip
was made via the Canal and was thor-
oughly enjoyed. The weather was mild
and no one was sick. Leavitt met them
with his car at the boat landing near Los
Angeles.-Dr. James TuRNER, another
'68 graduate-,so far as we know is busy
ministering to the sick in Waupun. He
clings to Wisconsin, notwithstanding its
being a wet state and in the land of
snow. He has not been heard from re-
cently, but presumably he has gone
south from Lincoln, Neb., to investigate
the wind from off the shore. He keeps
busy between the north in summer
and south in winter and Nebraska dur-
ing his leisure.--John G. TAYLOR qui-
etly  observed  November I2th, his
eighty-second birthday, at home. The
overleaping cold weather from Wiscon-
sin drove him near the fireplace for
warmth. He recently read a paper be-
fore the ministers of Boston on "Shall
the Congregtional Churches Become
Liturgical?" 'which awakened much in-
terest.
8 Q1 Dear Classmates: You are
        doubtless all aware of the ruse
used by journalists to create a "scoop,"
as they call it. They create news and as-
sert it as a fact, and later on, if compelled
by circumstances or maybe by force,
they retract or correct their former ar-
ticle. Such is my predicament. In
order to make it more graphic I stated
in last month's issue that our esteemed
fellow member, Dr. Dan McARTHUR,
announced the marriage of his grand-
daughter. I expatiated on the grandeur
and novelty of any member of 1881 hav-
ing such an event occur in his family.
Now, without any reprimand or even
any thanks from the said Dan, I am
forced to correct my statement and ac-
knowledge it was his daughter, Helen,
who was married to Mr. Alfred Ray
Thatcher, at La Crosse, August 25. I
am sure you all unite with me in wishing
the young people long life, prosperity
and happiness. The newly installed edi-
tor of our Magazine has started out in an
admirable manner to make our college
paper one of the best extant. My idea
is we should all cooperate with him in
every possible way. He has invited and
urged us to send him class news, personal
articles in particular. Distant as we are
from one another, I cannot comply with
his request unless you aid me. ' Please
do so. Drop me aline and it will be
manna to me, as I am out of ammuni-
tion.
             Cordially,
                          F. S. W.
