                A STRAIGHT TIP
                        ON THE
                AEROPLANE RACES
                            Chicago, October 25, 1910.
Keep still, Old Man:
    Just listen!
    Right here in this little old Chicago burg there are
nearly, 700 alumni and former students of Wisconsin
University.
    Away back in 1-902 nearly 400 of 'us got together
one night at the Victoria. Do -you remember that dinner?
it was great! Not enough tables, not enough chairs. No
room, no food-nothing,, and what there was of it only
half cooked. Oh, it was great!
    This year we are going that dinner one better. It
sure will be the classy stunt.
    Now if this letter had but a one-cent stamp, it would
not have been forwarded in case you have changed your
address. But we have spent two cents in mailing this
preliminary notice.
    Next week's tip will be mailed under a 1- cent stamp.
    Be wise.
    Mail the card and make no dates for the week of
November fourteenth.
               Flightily yours, Lynn A. Williams,
               General Chairman Aviation Meet, U. W. Club, Chicago.
Facsimile of the Invitation issued to Chicago Alumni to attend the Aviation
Meet.
           The Letter was printed in Red Ink.
