  Fellow Classmates: I do hope you
forty-fivers realize the importance of the
coming convocation in June!       This
should be our Happy New Year greeting
to our Alma Mater and to each other.
One man tried to defer his return until
the 5oth class anniversary.  He was
easily converted to this coming June.
He admitted that according to mortu-
ary statistics he might not be here then.
Don't be too optimistic as to how long
you will survive. Come now, and make
sure of seeing us all. The other classes of
your acquaintance will be there en
masse. For instance, such first premium
men as Kemper KNAPP, John DODSON,
Joe HALLAM, will all be there, wearing
their usual smile and blue ribbon. They
were all my guests, December 3oth at
the University Club, when we wel-
comed to our city Frank PORTER, now
dean of the Law School of Southern
California. Frank was a delegate attend-
ing a convention of all the deans of law
from all over America. Five of us sat at
table and I was the only gray-haired one
