New Alumni Club in Bangkok
  When alumni and friends of the University in Bangkok,
Thailand, gathered last December 6 to honor UW Economics
Prof. P. T. Ellsworth, who is there for the International
Bank for Reconstruction and Development, they seized the
opportunity to form the newest Wisconsin alumni club-
and one of the farthest from home base in Madison.
  The group elected officers to guide the club's activities
during the coming year, choosing as President Chalong
Pungtragul '46, as Secretary Thalerng Thampong-Narvasamat
'57 and as Treasurer Sompong Thanasophon '57.
  Thirty alumni were in attendance at the December affair
from a mailing list of 51, a record equalled by few dubs.
  ONE LINE NOTES: For the Washington, D.C., club's
pre-Christmas get-together at the Statler the come-on was

basketball center Gene Englund proved his versatility by
winning the Oshkosh Quarterback club's football game pre-
diction contest last fall... A regional meeting of land grant
colleges and universities in Denver was the signal for alumni
of the mile high city to meet and greet President E. B. Fred,
as well as other faculty members including Lindley J. Stiles,
Frances Zuill, W. R. Marshall, Blanche L. Lee, Preston C.
Hammer and Vincent C. Rideout.
