   C. F. Schwenker, '11, is one of the
state bank examiners and a letter
from  him  has come into our hands
that brings encouragement to the As-
sociation. He writes, "Have gotten

it this time. Any time . can do any-
thing to help it, do not hesitate

  John R. Hayes, '10, has been ap-
pointed state bank examiner and has
been engaged in his new duties since
the first of March. Congratulations

university has been taken over by F.
H1. Elwell.
   The appeal published in the last is-
sue of this magazine for real live
human letters from our alumni in the
field did  not result in our being
swamped with, such correspondence.
One man, however, in far-off South
America did write of his own free
will without knowing the appeal had

him and a large part of his letter fol-

  R. L. Hatch, '11, as was previously
announced, is in    South  America.
More detailed particulars of his loca-
tion  and  work  has recently  been
brought to our attention through a

Huan Luan near an English estancia,
where I stayed several weeks and then

end of April, when we move back to
Punta Rieles and San Antonia to fin-
ish our work and get ready to go
back to the States. I made the whole

riding is one of the great attractions
for me. I ride every opportunity I
