the U. IV. Alumni Club of St. Croix Val-
ley with the request that it be inserted in
the Alumni Magazine. It should have
appeared with the write-up of the annual
meeting of the club which appeared in the

such insertion.)

TO the Board of Regents of the Uni-
   versity of Wisconsin:
   At the recent meeting of the St. Croix
Valley - University of Wisconsin Alumni
Club, the members voted their disap-
proval of the action of the Board of Re-
gents in refusing to accept any future
gifts from educational foundations.
  We, the members of the Alumni Club,
feel that such action will hamper the
normal progressive advancement or de-
velopment of the University, particularly
in the field of research. Such a policy
will undoubtedly place the University
of Wisconsin at a disadvantage com-
pared with other universities of recog-
nized equal rank.
  It is our wish that the Board of Re-
gents reconsider and revoke their action
in refusing to accept gifts which we deem
vital to the future of our Alma Mater.

       consin Alumni Club,
    -By Arthur H. Benson, '23,
0n May 2o a small but enthusiastic
    group of Wisconsin alumni met in
Syracuse for their annual dinner. The
meeting was held in Slocum Hall, on the
campus of Syracuse University, and the
dinner was served by the Home Eco-
nomics Department of the University.
  The Syracuse group is not sufficiently
formal in its organization to necessitate
a business meeting other than to call the
roll and to elect for another year's duties
the following two officers: Prof. 'Ray-
mond F. Piper, '12,. president, and Ella
Wyman Brewer, 'o9, secretary.
  Immediately following the'transac-
tion of this weighty business, Mr. Piper
spoke on "Recent Books by Wisconsin
Faculty Members."    Professor Piper's
own field being philosophy, he gave a
particularly sympathetic and enlighten-
ing review of Prof. M. C. Otto's latest
book. Later Professor Leonard's "Two
Lives" was reviewed by Florence Ver-
non Steensland, '95.
  Wisconsin spirit ran high with the
singing of Wisconsin songs and indul-
gence in many reminiscences, and it was
agreed that more than one meeting a
year was needed. With the decision to
meet in the fall for a Wisconsin picnic,
the meeting was adjourned.-7-7-26.
