sent out by Mr. and Mrs. Bill Crutcher
Jr. to 140 in all.
  "The occasion which brought Mrs.
Troxell to Dixie was a booking at the
Kentucky convention of the American
Association of University Women. (She
told the convention that schools and col-
leges should be allowed to investigate
their own 'subversives.')
  "You may soon hear more from us,
with the change in administration, un-
parliamentary though it might have
been. In one motion Bill resigned as
president, Charles 0. Ewing Jr. was
nominated to succeed him and the ques-
tion was put and unanimously passed."
  Distelhorst closed with an invitation
"Madison folks, visit with us when you
cross the Mason and Dixon Line, and
make us old-time 'Floradora' hummers
happy-as well as those more recent
Madison residents."

sophomore class at the University of
Wisconsin Extension Center in Racine

studies on the Madison campus. Estab-
lished in 1950, the scholarship plan has

Add Founders Day
  Faculty Founders Day speakers, who
have been doing such a good job for
clubs all over the state and nation, got
the chance April 13 to break bread with-
out making a speech. The Wisconsin
Alumni Association was host at a Union
luncheon for them.
  "Research is the keynote to our prog-
ress," Prof. L. F. Graber, agronomy,
told Founders Day celebrants at Merrill
on March 31. Ed Gibson spoke on the
UW budget.
  Berlin alumni on March 26 heard
Prof. Ralph Huitt, political science,
discuss "Politics and Crime" at their
Founders Day d i n n e r meeting. Dr.
Grant Stone was elected president of
the club.
  Leroy Luberg, assistant to UW Pres.
Fred, discussed the University's progress
-its problems-at rather a new       type
of Founders Day celebration in Janes-
ville on April 13. The affair was a
dessert meeting, quite informal, held in
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Walter S.
  Fox River Valley alumni entertained
three special guests at their Founders
Day dinner on March 26: Regent Wil-
bur Renk, grid Coach Ivy Williamson,
and Grace Chatterton, alumnae secre-
  And at New Orleans on April 24
the setting was a private banquet hall
at Irwins' for a nostalgic and song-filled
evening that marked the southern club's
observance of Founders Day.
   I WISH the public schools did not have
 to become more and more the foster
 parent. I wish the private school, in re-
 turn for the tuition was not expected to
 turn out the exact product of the family
 specified. In the growing up of young
 men, in their learning, in their education,
 the family is the most important factor.
 The school can supplement it, but it can-
 not supplant. Perhaps if the college could
 first educate some parents, it would be
 fairer to our candidates, for we have to
 admit the boys who are products of a
 school-public or private--and a home.-
 C. William Edwards, Director of Admis-
 sions, Princeton.
