  '07    Emma 0.LUNDBE-RG, of the re-
         search staff of the Children's
  Bureau, Washington, D". C., has made a
  new study, "Aid to Mothers with De-
  pendent Children," recently published
  by the government.
  908    Will J. PLATTrEN thus responds
       . to a class request for news:
  "I am now in horticulture, raising ap-
  ples in the North-in the summer (home
  -address 218 N. Oakland Ave., Green
  Bay,. Wis.) and raising citrus fruit in
  the South in winter (address Sebastian,
  Fla.).' Am not married. Am a captain
  in1 the Marine Corps Reserve, and at-
  tend their, summer camps.- Still play
  chess,'mostly by correspondence." That
  makes three 'o8 engineers in fruit-raising
  --A Bradford WHITNEY' in Upland, Cal.,
  and Horance HOLMES, Omak, Wash.-
  Lee H. HUNTLEY is with the Tallasste

  '09    Arthur JORGENs ON, ex 14, writes
         from  Tokyo, Japan: "Mrs.
 Jorgensen '(Lona BERGH, "09) and I
 with our four youngsters have just re-
 turned to Tokyo after nearly three
 years in the United States. Getting back
 is a, very interesting experience and we
 anticipate a really corking good time
 during the next few    years.  Grave
 problems of integratidn between East
 and West converge in this part of the
 world and it- is fascinating to-work at
 them even if only in a small way. Mrs.
 Jorgie is really the only honest-to-good-
 ness Wisconsin person in the family,
 though if ability to join the Victrola in
 singing the 'Varsity Toast' and 'On
 Wisconsin' will be accepted as evidence
-of loyalty, then the whole crowd of six
can qualify. My own connection with
the University dates back to 19o8-
1911 when I served as secretary of the
University 'Y.' They were great years,
too!"-Stella KAYSER and Vivian SMITH
'exii, had the unusual experience of
meeting last summer in Warsaw, Po-
land.   Miss Kayser left the United
  States in June and went to Norway and
  Germany, while Miss Smith left Japan,
  crossed through Russia on the Trans-
- Siberian Railway and came from Mos-
  cow to meet Miss Kayser. They were
  entertained for a week at the home of the
  Prince and Princess Lubomirski, with
  whom Miss Smith became acquainted
  during the war. "This visit was of great
  interest to us, as Americans," said Miss
  Kayser. "The Lubomirski family is one
  of the oldest in Poland. They live in
  Kruzyna, own, 25,ooo acres of forest
  land and employ seventy peasants on
  their estate, most of whom are illiterate,
  since education in Poland has not been
  compulsory until two years ago. The
  privileges of these landless peasants are
  few, but at the same time the aristocrats
  are now under such tremendous taxes
  that their problem is also a big one."-
  Morgan PATTisoN is now in the insur-
  ance and real estate business in Santa
  Monica, Calif.
  1j(i   W. H. TIMM, C. P. A., who was
  . IJ for several years secretary of the

  ' 11 Stanley K. HORNBEdK, Ph.D.,
         has just'returned to Washington

 the special conference on the Chinese
 customs tariff. He will be at Harvard
 University where he is lecturer on the
 Far East during the second half of the
 academic year. He is connected with the
 State Department at Washington as
 specialist on commercial publicity.
 '12 '~The Rev. H. V. LACY, Fuising,
        Fukien, China, writes: "Have
 been back in China for about three
 months. Politically everything is upset.
 The Cantdnese government is now in
 process of getting control of Fukien
 province and we hardly~know where we
stand. There has been minor fighting
about Foochow, but today (December
ii, 1926), all is quiet here at Futsing."

'15      Dr. R. C. BUERKI, superintend-
         ent of the Wisconsin General
 Hospital, denied   rumors  that   the
 hospital would soon start a radium in-
 stitute. "It would take a considerable
