  The Milwaukee alumni have de-
cided to have a monthly dinner at
Hotel Charlotte. The plan, is to
get as many of the fellows who are
downtown to lunch to make it a
point to eat at the Charlotte* on a
particular day, which will be the
first Thursday of every month.
We want all the alumni from out of
the city, who happen to, be in Mil-
waukee on that day, to arrange to
eat there. They will thus surely
meet many old friends. The plan
is not to wait for anyone, but when-
ever you are hungry, go over there
and eat. We hope that those who
come will remain and enjoy them-
selves for a time, but they are
to go and come as business calls
  Over 700 former students of the
university, now engaged in teach-
ing in the schools of the state, will
hold their annual reunion in Mil-
waukee   during   the  Wisconsin
Teachers' Association meeting No-
vember 3-5, under the auspices of
the   University  of   Wisconsin
Alumni Teachers' Club.
  A dinner will be given by the
club in Gimbel's grill room Friday,
Nov. 4, at 6:30 p. m. President
