 Sec'y-SUSAN A. STERLING, Madison
             612 Howard Place
   Because of the secretary's absence from
 the city, the following item was not inserted
 at the time it came to her notice. In The
 Oconomowoc Enterprise, under date of April
 16, there is an interesting article signed by
 Lewis OSTENSON relative to women holding
 public office and referring especially to their
 representation on the county board. There
 seems to be prejudice in Waukesha county
 among certain men and even women against
 women being members of the county board.
 Mr. Ostenson takes up the cudgels for the
 women and pleads effectively for the replac-
 ing of the "shrewd and long-time holdover
 politicians" by women of ability interested
 in home and community welfare who will
 cooperate, in introducing'a clean, economical
 and efficient administration.

  Carl A. JOHNSON, president of the Gisholt
Machine Company, told the Madison Rotary
Club at a noon luncheon in June, that it was
"unfortunate that such men as Walter
Kohler, Harry Butler, and A. J. Horlick and
others" were sacrificed as members of the
Board of Regents. He also declared that "if
there had been a deliberate attempt to
throttle industry in Wisconsin, it could not
have been more successful than it has been
of late," and that the future prosperity of
the state depends on whether or not the state
tax laws are so revised, that new industries
can be persuaded to come into Wisconsin.-

 would give me great pleasure to be pres-
 ent. It is a little hard to say now defi-
 nitely, but I will come if I can and hope
 to meet many of our class next June."-
 Mary EVANS Mason, 14o0 Ridge Ave.,
 Chicago, answers: "It would certainly
 be most interesting to meet our old
 friends of 1892, and while it is impossible
 to make positive plans so far ahead, I
 shall surely keep the reunion for 1927
 in mind."-Anna ELLSWORTH Blount,
 M. D., 146 S. Oak Park Ave., Oak Park,
 Ill., writes: "Because June, 1927, is al-
 luringly distant, I hope to be with you

 son who had just fini'shed his internship

from Wisconsin to Delaware, although the
laboratories themselves will not be moved.

companies throughout. the country in return
for patents and research work done by the
Burgess Laboratories for these various com-
panies. Under the present Wisconsin tax
law, the company has to pay taxes on the
holdings outside of the state. It is to escape
taxation on stock acquired and held in this
way that the legal domicile of the corporation
has been moved from Wisconsin to Delaware.
