Alumni Notes
                  by Al Nemetz e'50
  Alumni! We haven't had as many
reports from you as are needed to
make this department a truly repre-
sentative cross-section of alumni ac-
tivities. In order to keep abreast of
as many engineering grads as pos-
sible more information is required.
So if you yourself, or any Wiscon-
sin engineering graduate known to
you, engages in any activity, receives
a position, or accomplishes anything
that you feel would interest our
readers please drop us a line. A
postcard will do. The address is
"The Wisconsin Engineer", Room
352, Mechanical Engineering Build-
ing, University of Wisconsin, Madi-
son, Wis.
  With full alumni cooperation we
hope to make this department of
more vital interest to all our readers.
