  A resolution presented to the executive
  committee of the Wisconsin Alumni Asso-
  ciation is quoted in part below:
  "It is with deep grief that the Wisconsin
  Alumni Association records the death of Ben-
  jamin S. Reynolds, ('09), in Madison on
  December 20, 1954. His active interest in
  the welfare of the University of Wisconsin,
  demonstrated in many ways, will be greatly
  missed. . .  .
  "A director of the Burgess Battery and the
  Burgess Cellulose Companies, of the Burgess-
  Manning Co., as well as chairman of the
  Board of the Research Products Corporation,
  he was one of eight prominent engineers and
  industrialists honored by the University of
  Wisconsin for outstanding accomplishment in
  their fields.
  "In August, 1948, he was appointed to the
  Board of Visitors by the Association. During
  many of the six years he served on this board,
  he acted as secretary. His sound judgment
  and extensive business experience, coupled
  with his kindly personality, made him a
Benjamin
   S.
Reynolds
strong member of this University advisory
group . ..
  "Wisconsin Alumni Association members
will long remember Ben Reynolds. He exem-
plified in his personal, business and civic life
the type of alumnus which Wisconsin is
especially proud to claim.
   (Friends of Mr. Reynolds have taken steps
to establish a memorial in his memory-the
annual presentation of a medal bearing his
likeness and an award of S1,000 to the UW
faculty member who contributes most to the
instruction of engineering students.)

  Foreign Educators

  inations are harder than yours and our
  students work more and perhaps get a
  better education."
  K-.ijo Ono, la/,an:
    "I have noted that your students in
  the same year of high school are about
  two years behind ours in physics, chem-
  istry, and natural history. But they do
  have more initiative than ours do, who
  are held to a rigid curriculum and very
  high standards. Your education is con-
  spicuous for its practical point of view.
  for you teach youngsters to adapt them-
  selves to society."
  Emilia "amburi, InidJ
     "The sense of equality and respect .for
   the individual is here a rcality', not jUSt
   an ideal. This is true freedom and th2
   aspect of American life that impressed
   me more than your spectacular cities and
   y-our efficient educational plants. Chil-
   dren here have more respect for their
   teachers, especially at the senior high
   school level, than do our children in
   Italy. There we have a relation of stiff-
   ness between teachers and children, with
