This "robin" has flown over its na- tionwide circuit since the summer of 1907, and is still as active a bird as ever. Its route includes Milwaekee, Chicago, Montrose (Colorado), San Francisco, New York City, and' Baltimore. It makes its circuit every six to eight weeks and has already traveled a million miles. It might - e said "the first million miles* are the hardest," as each year the "bird" is more deeply endeared to DC:2 It has served to keep seven college chums in close touch as it seems only a -round-robin letter could do. The contents of the ,big envelope are always highly informal and very in- teresting. It contains everything from .one of "Louie" Reinhard's stories to a political discussion, or a report of some member's visit at Madison, .or a picture of "the family." College' friendships are usually the best of our e'ntire lives, so why. not continue them systematically by'means of "round-robins?" 236
