PARK HOTEL-INTERCOLLEGIATE ALUMNI HOTEL
THE PARK HOTEL has been officially designated as
   the Intercollegiate Alumni Hotel of Madison, and as
an alumni hotel, the Park is prepared to render a
special service to resident and visiting alumni. The
current issues of the alumni publications of some eighty
colleges and universities in the Intercollegiate Alumni
Association will be on file at the Park in addition to a
card index of the names of all resident alumni of the
same institutions. The managers of all intercollegiate
alumni hotels are prepared to cooperate with individual
alumni and groups of alumni to the fullest extent. This
is especially so of Mr. Walter Pocock, irnnager of the
Park, whose middle name is courtesy.
ADVERTISING
THEWisconsin Alumni Magazine is a medium of con-
   tact between the University and the alumni. It is
owned and controlled by the General Alumni Association
and every member of the Association is a stockholder
and should beinterested in its success. It is a big finan-
       .n an -vistin                 alumn * . i.' The
Cial responsioility ror mne iissociaulon. .t~s nnaniilti su.--
cess depends upon its ability to "draw" advertising. The
value of magazine advertising depends upon the quality
of the publication. We are trying to make the Wiscon-
sin Alumni Magazine a quality magazine. The success
of advertising depends even to a greater degree upon
the support which subscribers give advertisers. If you
patronize our advertisers, advertising will become per-
manent and the income of the Association will be in-
creased. If you do not and our advertising falls away,
the scope of the magazine must be narrowed. Our
pages carry. high class advertising that should be of
interest to our readers. That our ads are read con-
sistently is evident from the frequency with which
members write us or speak to us about them. But let
us do more than read the ads. Let us patronize our
advertisers and mention the Magazine. It is only fair
to help those who help us.

GLEE CLUB PLANS EUROPEAN TOUR
A FTER MONTHS of planning and preparation, the
officers of the University Men's Glee club announce
a summer concert tour of Europe to be made by the well
known concert group next summer.
  The tour will begin with the embarkation on the Red
Star liner, Belgenland, June 25, 1927, and will terminate
with the return of the S. S. Pennland on August 6. The
following cities will be included: London, Oxford,
Cambridge, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburg, Glas-

ranged for by the club's representatives in London.
  When it was ascertained that the club would have the
opportunity of making the tour, Prof. E. Earl Swinney,
conductor of -the concert group, announced that he
would choose the 32 best voices from the concert clubs
of the past three years, and thus organize a club even
finer than the regular concert group.  -
  Arrangements are being made at the present time to
book- several concerts on the trip from Madison to the
port of embarkation, New York. These appearances
will no doubt be made in Cleveland, Ohio; Rochester,
N. Y., and in New York City.
  The establishment of the European tour will by no
means alter the plans of the Club for its regular annual
spring tour of the Mid-West.                     I
  The contemplated tour is the culmination of plans
initiated and perfected by Carlton Johns, '27, business
manager.
