"Here's hoping," she said in part,
that this reunion will bring back
just heaps of you people that haven't
been able to be on the campus for
several years; then you'll have the
most wonderful reunion ever. Be-
lieve me, I'm already planning to be
there for the 25th. There ought to be
a clause in our diplomas making it
compulsory    that  'grads' return
every five years, for each return
would add at least five years to our
lives; there just isn't any substitute
for a trip back to the old campus."
Incidentally, and regardless of ques-
tionings from "cultured New Eng-
land," she plans to send her only
daughter out here to Wisconsin for
her higher education. She will wel-
come any 'o6ers when in Boston.
She lives atI 303 Highland avenue,
West Newton.
  There were also letters and cables
from celebrities here and abroad.
At least they bore earmarks of the
White House, the Shah of Persia,
Amundsen, the explorer, and Mus-,
solini. The latter wired, "Am proud
to send greetings to your honorable
outfit which gave to my country
your Marjorie Daw Johnson. She
did one big piece of work over here,
and on behalf of king (whom I don't
like only a little) I bow low and
mutter, Hit em mit bricks, 19o6'
Forever, Mussolini."
