There has been a big change and not just in the weather! On October 22, your correspondent married an old childhood sweetheart, Bob Ames. Bob retired early and moved to the Outer Banks 23 years ago. We are going back to Vernon, N.Y., in late May and hope to be in Alfred for Reunion Weekend. A California vacation is planned for March. "Hydie" Blundred has moved into a retirement complex in Florida. The address: 6909 9th St. South #272, St. Petersburg, Fla., 33705. Helen Clarke Gregory spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City, where she attended a grandson's wedding. In December Helen enjoyed a cruise to Panama with another AU alum; Dorothy Veddar '44. Charles Henderson auctioned off his collection of antiques. No one bid on Charlie so he is spending the winter in Florida. Watching the "hype" on TV before the Super Bowl, I saw Norm Schachter's '37 name mentioned as a former referee. Art Whaley is enjoying the winter in Florida. We will miss reading Larry March's '45 class notes; he always wrote a lively informative column. Betty Stangl Thomas '42 was looking for information on the American Craftsmen School at AU. Mel Bernstein's book, Art and Design at Alfred, gives a good account of it. Henry Gernhardt, retired from the ceramic department at Syracuse University, attended the Craftsmen School and went on to RIT when the school moved there. Dot Schirm Ievers '37 wrote she is interested in hearing from Alfred friends and tells us about the tornado in Ireland last fall and the damage to her property. Write or call me with more news.

Homecoming weekend was the occasion for a dinner (in conjunction with invitations into the Sports Hall of Fame) honoring the members of the 1952 undefeated football team. Following the dinner, Joe Fasano '54 hosted a party for many of the athletes who were his classmates, including Ralph DiMicco, Vern Fitzgerald, Less Goble, Bart Cosolito, Bill Speca, and George Polecano. Films from the '50s football games were shown. Others attending the party were Chuck Shultz '57, Hal Snyder '55, and Carl Peterson '53 as well as Bill Navin '25.

Margaret Bedell Cantwell '35, cousin to Janet Decker Cawse, sent us the following news: "Janet celebrated her 90th birthday on June 3. She was a high school math teacher in Tottenville for many years. She married Alfred Cawse, an attorney from Staten Island. Their children James who lives in Pittsford, Mass., and Elaine, who lives in Bend, Ore., hosted a dinner party at Bascon Lodge atop the highest mountain (Mt. Greylock) in Massachutes. Janet has lost her vision but was able to identify people by their voice. The St. Stephens Episcopal church choir and congregation sang happy birthday to her. A note or post card to Janet would bring back her many happy memories of AU days. Her address is Mt. Greylock Facility, 1000 North St., Pittsfield, Mass 01201."

Our Class of '32 was represented by W. Wallace (Wally) Clarke at the Alumni Reunion in June 1997. Believe it or not, Wally flew , by himself, from his home in Lakeland, Fla., to the reunion. He sent us this report on the reunion luncheon (he was the only representative there): "There was no sign on our table for the Class of '32 so, after all the earlier classes had been introduced without including our class, I sent a note up the table to the president. He sent it to the girl making the announcements. She apologized and asked the Class of '32 to stand up. So, up I go, raise my cane high, and shout 'YA VO!' Then, the applause was greater for our class than for any of the other classes. Several people came up to me later and shook my hand. It was the highlight of my visit." Should we say that Wally was raising "cane" at Reunion? We were very pleased to hear from several classmates during the holidays. Our first surprise was a Christmas card from Elizabeth (Rogers) Sarver. Betty has been living (for over 20 years) in Daytona Beach, Fla., since her retirement. She writes, "I love it, but then I was born here." Her sister, Mary (Rogers) McFall '29, lives about a mile away and another sister, Frances (Rogers) Spencer '30, lives in Missouri. Betty also writes that she enjoys reading the notes about our class. We were saddened to receive news from Friendship, N.Y., regarding the passing of Marion (Burrows) Johnson '32 in November and her daughter, Frances Carol Johnson '61, in September. Marion's son, Lloyd, and wife, Nancy, kindly wrote to us in response to our '97 Christmas card. We would like to end our column with a tribute to our long-time friend, Col. C.L. March '45, who announced in the fall edition, that he was ending his "networking" with his classmates through his column. However, I'm sure that Larry will still keep in touch with his many friends. Congratulations, Larry, and thank you for your loyalty to your Alfred friends and the University we all love.

R. Arthur Gaiser came back to his alma mater to serve on a distinguished panel of outstanding business experts from the alumni and area. We see Ruby Robinson Huffcut once in a while at activities here and in surrounding Allegany County. Ruth Kenyon Tate remembers us at Christmas. Olive Jenks Anderson corresponds frequently. We catch sight of Jay G. Geller traversing the community. George Louis Duke is a good benefactor of the University, and can be counted on to attend the spring reunion if possible. Eugene Rogers Crandall, is outstanding in response to his alma mater and its interests. Let us all point toward our 65th Reunion as a time of seeing and communicating with old acquaintances who helped shape our lives and destinies.

Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.

Your class agent spent a week in Albany after suffering a heart attack June 11. As a person who never gets sick, the experience of having a heart attack was strange. Learn from my experience. Don't assume an "odd sensation" as a sore muscle from hanging new drapes as I did; describe it to a health professional. We are all of an age to be at a greater risk for heart attack. I am coming along well and love to get your letters so please send them to me at Hobart.
There has been a big change and not just in the weather! On October 22, your correspondent married an old childhood sweetheart, Bob Ames. Bob retired early and moved to the Outer Banks 23 years ago.

"Hydie" Blundred has moved into a retirement complex in Florida. The address: 6909 9th St. South #272, St. Petersburg, Fla., 33705. Helen Clarke Gregory spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City, where she attended a grandson's wedding. In December Helen enjoyed a cruise to Panama with another AU alum; Dorothy Veddar '44. Charles Henderson auctioned off his collection of antiques. No one bid on Charlie so he is spending the winter in Florida. Watching the "hype" on TV before the Super Bowl, I saw Norm Schachter's '37 name mentioned as a former referee. Art Whaley is enjoying the winter in Florida. We will miss reading Larry March's '45 class notes; he always wrote a lively informative column. Betty Stangl Thomas '42 was looking for information on the American Craftsmen School at AU. Mel Bernstein's book, Art and Design at Alfred, gives a good account of it. Henry Gernhardt, retired from the ceramic department at Syracuse University, attended the Craftsmen School and went on to RIT when the school moved there.

There has been a big change and not just in the weather! On October 22, your correspondent married an old childhood sweetheart, Bob Ames. Bob retired early and moved to the Outer Banks 23 years ago. We are going back to Vernon, N.Y., in late May and hope to be in Alfred for Reunion Weekend. A California vacation is planned for March. "Hydie" Blundred has moved into a retirement complex in Florida. The address: 6909 9th St. South #272, St. Petersburg, Fla., 33705. Helen Clarke Gregory spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City, where she attended a grandson's wedding. In December Helen enjoyed a cruise to Panama with another AU alum; Dorothy Veddar '44.

Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.

She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.
There has been a big change and not just in the weather! On October 22, your correspondent married an old childhood sweetheart, Bob Ames. Bob retired early and moved to the Outer Banks 23 years ago. We are going back to Vernon, N.Y., in late May and hope to be in Alfred for Reunion Weekend. A California vacation is planned for March. "Hydie" Blundred has moved into a retirement complex in Florida. The address: 6909 9th St. South #272, St. Petersburg, Fla., 33705. Helen Clarke Gregory spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City, where she attended a grandson's wedding. In December Helen enjoyed a cruise to Panama with another AU alum; Dorothy Veddar '44. Charles Henderson auctioned off his collection of antiques. No one bid on Charlie so he is spending the winter in Florida. Watching the "hype" on TV before the Super Bowl, I saw Norm Schachter's '37 name mentioned as a former referee. Art Whaley is enjoying the winter in Florida. We will miss reading Larry March's '45 class notes; he always wrote a lively informative column. Betty Stangl Thomas '42 was looking for information on the American Craftsmen School at AU. Mel Bernstein's book, Art and Design at Alfred, gives a good account of it. Henry Gernhardt, retired from the ceramic department at Syracuse University, attended the Craftsmen School and went on to RIT when the school moved there. Dot Schirm Ievers '37 wrote she is interested in hearing from Alfred friends and tells us about the tornado in Ireland last fall and the damage to her property. Write or call me with more news.
Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt.

Among those who exist only in memory, since we were together at Reunion four years ago, are Ruth Crawford Frank, Aurabeth Ehret Van Horn, Marion Streeter, and Randolph Webb '37. Others may have to come to our notice. The 60th reunion is not far away; so, let us gather our hopes for a memorable milestone that will bring us together from far and near. We expect an unforgettable homecoming. Among the ones we look forward to welcome will be Lois Smith Burdett, Barbara J. Corsaw Klock, Elizabeth D. Crandall, Martha J. Kyle, Robert F. Bruns, Philo H. Dudley, Charles F. Gilbo, Nelda Randall Creagh, Harold E. Riegger, Elizabeth Snyder Lynch, Elizabeth W. O'Neill, Elenor Wisner Wisniski, David W. Veit, Florence Ovenshire, and Kenneth Vance. These leaders will rally around, as will these who are always to be counted on for their part in keeping the Class '38 strong and enduring, Robert J. Hughes, Eugene F. Keefe, beloved Warda Vincent Mauro, John Albright. We include you, too whose names we may have missed or overlooked. Please forgive mistakes in remembering the faithful members of 1938. We love you.
Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.

There has been a big change and not just in the weather! On October 22, your correspondent married an old childhood sweetheart, Bob Ames. Bob retired early and moved to the Outer Banks 23 years ago. We are going back to Vernon, N.Y., in late May and hope to be in Alfred for Reunion Weekend. A California vacation is planned for March. "Hydie" Blundred has moved into a retirement complex in Florida. The address: 6909 9th St. South #272, St. Petersburg, Fla., 33705. Helen Clarke Gregory spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City, where she attended a grandson's wedding. In December Helen enjoyed a cruise to Panama with another AU alum; Dorothy Veddar '44. Charles Henderson auctioned off his collection of antiques. No one bid on Charlie so he is spending the winter in Florida. Watching the "hype" on TV before the Super Bowl, I saw Norm Schachter's '37 name mentioned as a former referee. Art Whaley is enjoying the winter in Florida. We will miss reading Larry March's '45 class notes; he always wrote a lively informative column. Betty Stangl Thomas '42 was looking for information on the American Craftsmen School at AU. Mel Bernstein's book, Art and Design at Alfred, gives a good account of it. Henry Gernhardt, retired from the ceramic department at Syracuse University, attended the Craftsmen School and went on to RIT when the school moved there. Dot Schirm Ievers '37 wrote she is interested in hearing from Alfred friends and tells us about the tornado in Ireland last fall and the damage to her property. Write or call me with more news.

Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.

Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math.

The Journey, an exhibition of the ceramics, sculpture and photography of Len Rubenstein, was displayed from Jan. 10 - March 1 in the Collectors Gallery of the Palos Verdes Art Center in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

His work has been seen in the California Museum of Science and Industry; Albright-Knox Museum, Buffalo; Evenson Museum, Syracuse; and Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, N.Y.

Marguerite C. Matteson of Bradenton, Fla., is editor of Better Than Strangers. It tells the story of the George and Mary Irish family, who struggled to provide for themselves and their children on a homestead in New York State in the years preceding the Civil War. Their descendants went on to fight for the Union in the Civil War, experience the horrors of the wartime incarceration in Andersonville Prison, resettle in the Midwest and the South, speak out for the rights of women, and struggle individually and collectively for progress and meaning in a changing America. The entire story is told from a personal perspective, with the writers focusing on topics of immediate interest to themselves and their relatives. Marguerite is the great-granddaughter of George Irish Jr.

Alice Lundy and George Le Suer, Cambridge, Mass., had a healthy year. George still paints and makes miniature furniture while Alice enjoys Spanish classes and plays her harpsichord. They plan to travel, in the near future, no doubt a Spanish speaking country.

There has been a big change and not just in the weather! On October 22, your correspondent married an old childhood sweetheart, Bob Ames. Bob retired early and moved to the Outer Banks 23 years ago. We are going back to Vernon, N.Y., in late May and hope to be in Alfred for Reunion Weekend. A California vacation is planned for March. "Hydie" Blundred has moved into a retirement complex in Florida. The address: 6909 9th St. South #272, St. Petersburg, Fla., 33705. Helen Clarke Gregory spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City, where she attended a grandson's wedding. In December Helen enjoyed a cruise to Panama with another AU alum; Dorothy Veddar '44. Charles Henderson auctioned off his collection of antiques. No one bid on Charlie so he is spending the winter in Florida. Watching the "hype" on TV before the Super Bowl, I saw Norm Schachter's '37 name mentioned as a former referee. Art Whaley is enjoying the winter in Florida. We will miss reading Larry March's '45 class notes; he always wrote a lively informative column. Betty Stangl Thomas '42 was looking for information on the American Craftsmen School at AU. Mel Bernstein's book, Art and Design at Alfred, gives a good account of it. Henry Gernhardt, retired from the ceramic department at Syracuse University, attended the Craftsmen School and went on to RIT when the school moved there. Dot Schirm Ievers '37 wrote she is interested in hearing from Alfred friends and tells us about the tornado in Ireland last fall and the damage to her property. Write or call me with more news.
Marge Russell, Los Gatos, Calif., and I shared a room in the Brick for our 55th reunion. When I walked into room 201 (my freshman room) I felt I was 17 again. It was a long trip for Marge, but this lady never misses special reunions. Along with Peg Wingate Rase they attended the Pi Alpha dedication at the same time of their reunion. Peg, of Alfred, has failing eye sight, but it does not hinder her from working on an article for the Tidings Magazine in Rhode Island.
Dick Peck, Penfield, N.Y., related to me at our 55th reunion that he is now retired from real estate. He traveled to Palm Springs, California for an international conference with The New Horizon Band. It was formed seven years ago; to be a member one must be 55 or over and have an instrument to play strictly concert band concert music, pops, Kershwin and show tunes.
Bill (Art) Petri and Ann McLean, Va., celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary in late 1997 by touring Portugal with daughter, Michelle. She was the speaker at a medical meeting.

Herman Eichorn, Napa, Calif., said coming back to his 55th Class Reunion filled him with nostalgia. He grew up in an Amish Mennonite culture and had many hurdles to overcome. After graduation, he went on to graduate school to prepare for a professional career as a Chaplain and an instructor of theological students and clergy. Retired, his hobbies include gardening and experimenting with varieties of grass which stay green without being watered.
Louise Kenyon Slingerland, Dundee, N.Y., regretted she could not make her 55th Reunion last June, due to church celebration of 175 years at the same time. Louise is busy with painting and crafts. She and her husband, Bob, spend 6 1/2 months in Zephyrhills, Fla.

Isabel Riggs Geibel seems to live life to the max. She continues to be involved with several veteran and genealogical organizations, being senior vice commandant of the Southern Tier Marine Corps League, secretary to the executive board of the Bath Veterans Affairs Medical Center Volunteer Services, regent and treasurer for the Penn Yan chapter of the Daughters of American Colonists, and chairman of Atlantic Coast DAC Veterans Services Committee. Isabel also finds time for extensive travel. In October, an especially impressive and memorable trip took her to Washington, D.C., where she was among the more that 30,000 people to witness the dedication of the Women in Military Service for America Memorial, near Arlington Cemetery.
We've happily learned that Reginald (Reg) Miner has made an excellent recovery from a June 1996 illness and is planning to attend our 55th reunion. Our good feelings were tempered by the sad news that Reg had lost his beloved wife, Martha, on Nov. 4, 1996. They were married Feb. 27, 1943. A registered nurse, she joined the Army Nurse Corps in 1944, after Reg had become a POW in WWII. In peacetime, she continued to work as a nurse in various hospitals, until her retirement in 1982. We send Reg our belated, but very sincere, sympathy on the loss of someone to whom he was extremely devoted.
Mary Johnston Lawrence writes that her year was quite uneventful, except for trips to Disney World. But considering all her volunteer work and involvement in other activities, her life sounds far from dull. Mary seemed indecisive about returning for the double celebration, but I hope to persuade her positively about it.
With his nostalgic note, Jim Lippke enclosed a tasty recipe for spaghetti and meatballs/meat sauce, as served at Kappa Psi during his student days there. It seems that whenever the regular cook was not on duty, George Parente, the house manager, made this delicious treat for the residents. Jim writes of the close ties he and his best friend, the late Walter (Lucky) Lawrence, had with Pi Alpha Pi. While the sorority is no longer active, certainly the numerous alumnae are. We look forward to seeing many of you Pi Alphans at our 55th, because you'll be celebrating your 75th anniversary at the same time (June 5-7).
We were very thankful to hear from Eugenie (Jane) Reb Stanislaw that her younger son, who had a cerebrovascular accident in May, while in Antigua, is now recovering well and living in Maine. Jane said it was a shock, understandably to those of us who have experienced serious health crises with our children. Jane, we dearly wish your son a speedy and permanent recovery and a promising future.
Guy Hartman, M.D., another eminently successful member of our exceptional class, has had a long and illustrious career in areas of pediatric medicine and music. He retired from medical practice in 1987 and resigned from USC, where he had served 30 years as clinical professor of pediatrics. He continued as a consultant to the Chairmen's Council of the California Medical Board, which he had previously chaired until 1992. Guy and his wife, Shirley Baldwin Hartman '45, now live in Salt Lake City. They have five children, three of whom live in the area. When Guy left his practice, he sought out his first love, music and renewed his expertise with the harpsichord, recorder, piano and organ. He's now on the Board of the American Guild of Organist, supervisor of organists at the SLC Temple, and plays as a regular and substitute organist. In September 1996, his interest took him to visit the historic pipe organs of France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium Budapest, Prague, Warsaw, and Krakow. His presence in Poland prompted him to stay there for a month to teach English as a global volunteer. He was told he'd be teaching refinement of language skills to high school pupils, who had studied English in previous years. Guy keeps in touch with Bob Williams, M.D. '44, a retired psychiatrist and professor emeritus at Baylor College of Medicine. In May of 1996, Guy returned to Buffalo for the 50th anniversary of his medical school class. While in the area, he looked up Stuart Davis, M.D., who's still engaged in family practice in Westfield, Pa. He also stayed two days with Ted Kupinski '45, a former Kappa Psi roommate, now living in Syracuse, N.Y. Guy is an expert in the area of poisonous plants, and has made numerous radio and TV appearances as The Sinister Gardener. Of all his achievements, Guy says he is particularly proud of having been voted Outstanding Pediatrician in Southern California and twice winning the Southwestern Pediatric Society's SWPAICL Award for best speaker and best presentation. When I answered Guy's letter, I said it left me with a feeling of wonderment, admiration and the ubiquity of a round-the world whirlwind.

Jane Wilson Brownlow writes in her holiday note that she and her daughter planned to fly to Charleston, S.C., Dec. 26, to visit a sister and her husband who would be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Jane would be continuing on to Chapel Hill, N.C., to spend New Year's with another sister and brother-in-law. Jane hopes to make our 55th, depending on the status of a chronic knee problem.
Bob Sinclair and wife, Patsy, lived an exciting travel year. In June they went to Scotland to attend the Rotary International Convention in Glasgow. Staying at a delightful bed and breakfast in Edinburgh, they enjoyed not only the convention activities, including pipe bands and Scottish games, but a post convention week's tour of the Highlands. This encompassed visiting several castles, places and gardens, and cruising Loch Lomond and Loch Ness ("No Monster", Bob adds). Even a distillery was part of their tour. (After all, the Scots are known for more than music, lake monsters, and monumental buildings). Returning home, they went on a fall motor trip totaling 3,000 miles, visiting in Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Nevada. One can bet that, with their good health continuing, Bob and Patsy will be in Alfred for our 55th.
Ruth Woelfel Cunningham '43, Attleboro, Mass., wonders if roses bloom all year? Indeed they can, but I cut mine back in February so in six to eight weeks full blooming rose bushes return to our back yard.

There has been a big change and not just in the weather! On October 22, your correspondent married an old childhood sweetheart, Bob Ames. Bob retired early and moved to the Outer Banks 23 years ago. We are going back to Vernon, N.Y., in late May and hope to be in Alfred for Reunion Weekend. A California vacation is planned for March. "Hydie" Blundred has moved into a retirement complex in Florida. The address: 6909 9th St. South #272, St. Petersburg, Fla., 33705. Helen Clarke Gregory spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City, where she attended a grandson's wedding. In December Helen enjoyed a cruise to Panama with another AU alum; Dorothy Veddar '44. Charles Henderson auctioned off his collection of antiques. No one bid on Charlie so he is spending the winter in Florida. Watching the "hype" on TV before the Super Bowl, I saw Norm Schachter's '37 name mentioned as a former referee. Art Whaley is enjoying the winter in Florida. We will miss reading Larry March's '45 class notes; he always wrote a lively informative column. Betty Stangl Thomas '42 was looking for information on the American Craftsmen School at AU. Mel Bernstein's book, Art and Design at Alfred, gives a good account of it. Henry Gernhardt, retired from the ceramic department at Syracuse University, attended the Craftsmen School and went on to RIT when the school moved there. Dot Schirm Ievers '37 wrote she is interested in hearing from Alfred friends and tells us about the tornado in Ireland last fall and the damage to her property. Write or call me with more news.

Our Class of '32 was represented by W. Wallace (Wally) Clarke at the Alumni Reunion in June 1997. Believe it or not, Wally flew , by himself, from his home in Lakeland, Fla., to the reunion. He sent us this report on the reunion luncheon (he was the only representative there): "There was no sign on our table for the Class of '32 so, after all the earlier classes had been introduced without including our class, I sent a note up the table to the president. He sent it to the girl making the announcements. She apologized and asked the Class of '32 to stand up. So, up I go, raise my cane high, and shout 'YA VO!' Then, the applause was greater for our class than for any of the other classes. Several people came up to me later and shook my hand. It was the highlight of my visit." Should we say that Wally was raising "cane" at Reunion? We were very pleased to hear from several classmates during the holidays. Our first surprise was a Christmas card from Elizabeth (Rogers) Sarver. Betty has been living (for over 20 years) in Daytona Beach, Fla., since her retirement. She writes, "I love it, but then I was born here." Her sister, Mary (Rogers) McFall '29, lives about a mile away and another sister, Frances (Rogers) Spencer '30, lives in Missouri. Betty also writes that she enjoys reading the notes about our class. We were saddened to receive news from Friendship, N.Y., regarding the passing of Marion (Burrows) Johnson '32 in November and her daughter, Frances Carol Johnson '61, in September. Marion's son, Lloyd, and wife, Nancy, kindly wrote to us in response to our '97 Christmas card. We would like to end our column with a tribute to our long-time friend, Col. C.L. March '45, who announced in the fall edition, that he was ending his "networking" with his classmates through his column. However, I'm sure that Larry will still keep in touch with his many friends. Congratulations, Larry, and thank you for your loyalty to your Alfred friends and the University we all love.

Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.

Hey, Class of '52, there are 186 of you for whom the Alumni office has addresses, but only 25 showed up for our 45th Reunion in May. Why? Frank Bredell writes that despite the fact that he sent out letters to class members encouraging them to attend, he, himself, was apprehensive about going: "I thought whatever meager success I've had in life would not appear to be very much when measured against those of most of the class." Well, guess what? Hardly anyone mentioned their careers since most of our class is retired anyway; the talk concerned our day at Alfred. There was no one-upmanship of any kind, and no reason to make comparisons. It was a great weekend and wonderful to see the 20 or so other classmates who attended. On our 50th, I hope we can have a really big crowd."
Your correspondent, Emily Worth Robinson, and her husband Dick '50, visited Peru and Ecuador in October sampling historic and natural wonders in the Amazon basin, Andes Mountains and Galapagos Islands.

Leonarda (Baan) Van Der Werf, known as Se-ora V., to her students, believes in starting children in foreign language development at a young age: "At the first and second grade levels, the children's inhibition is zero and motivation is 100. By waiting until high school, the numbers reverse." Leonarda has been teaching in the West Long Branch district since 1983. She has spoken three different languages in addition to her native Dutch since the age of two. "A second language is easier for children to pick up when they're young, and should be required in all elementary schools in the country, she says.

Our Class of '32 was represented by W. Wallace (Wally) Clarke at the Alumni Reunion in June 1997. Believe it or not, Wally flew , by himself, from his home in Lakeland, Fla., to the reunion. He sent us this report on the reunion luncheon (he was the only representative there): "There was no sign on our table for the Class of '32 so, after all the earlier classes had been introduced without including our class, I sent a note up the table to the president. He sent it to the girl making the announcements. She apologized and asked the Class of '32 to stand up. So, up I go, raise my cane high, and shout 'YA VO!' Then, the applause was greater for our class than for any of the other classes. Several people came up to me later and shook my hand. It was the highlight of my visit." Should we say that Wally was raising "cane" at Reunion? We were very pleased to hear from several classmates during the holidays. Our first surprise was a Christmas card from Elizabeth (Rogers) Sarver. Betty has been living (for over 20 years) in Daytona Beach, Fla., since her retirement. She writes, "I love it, but then I was born here." Her sister, Mary (Rogers) McFall '29, lives about a mile away and another sister, Frances (Rogers) Spencer '30, lives in Missouri. Betty also writes that she enjoys reading the notes about our class. We were saddened to receive news from Friendship, N.Y., regarding the passing of Marion (Burrows) Johnson '32 in November and her daughter, Frances Carol Johnson '61, in September. Marion's son, Lloyd, and wife, Nancy, kindly wrote to us in response to our '97 Christmas card. We would like to end our column with a tribute to our long-time friend, Col. C.L. March '45, who announced in the fall edition, that he was ending his "networking" with his classmates through his column. However, I'm sure that Larry will still keep in touch with his many friends. Congratulations, Larry, and thank you for your loyalty to your Alfred friends and the University we all love.

Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.

When I read the AU President's Report 1996-97 that President Edward G. Coll, Jr., planned to retire in the summer of 2000, it seemed a disheartening bit of news. Without a doubt, he more than deserves the freedom and enjoyment this will allow him. In my opinion, no other president in my almost 60 year relationship with Alfred has given so much enterprise, vision, enlightenment, practical planning, and plain hard work to the University. We'll always wish him well, and good luck to a selection committee whose job it will be to find someone to follow such a stellar record of accomplishment.

Those present at our 60th Reunion were Marion Bartlett, Alice Di Blasi, Lillian Dixon, Margaret Donohue, Robert Doran, Donald Hallenbeck, Helen Henderson, Dorothy Ievers, Ted Knapp, Jean Lampman, Stanley Lull, Sam Scholes, Lucille Weaver, and Randy Webb. I think it was great that 14 of us made it. My young neighbors, in their 20's, and 30's, were astonished that such an event took place. Incidently, Alfred's annual Sarasota, Fla., luncheon was hosted by Dante Vezzoli '33, and held at the Bird Key Yatch Club in March. Last September your correspondent attended Robert Klein's '65 performance at the J.C.C. Forum. At the reception, I met Joel Siegler '65. Others on the Forum program were Leah Robin, Joan Rivers and author Daniel Goldhagen. I made a number of phone calls across the country. Ed Kunzman of Tyler, Texas, recently sold his florist business. It was good to see him at our 50th. Roland and Joyce (Wanmaker '38) Tucker continue to winter in Mesa, Ariz., from Ligonier, Pa. I called Anita Reich, Edwin Reich's widow. We spoke of Brooklyn, where I grew up. She is living in Delray, Fla., Margaret Cudworth Donohus, who lives in Delevan, was in charge of her high school reunion. Having gone to Girls High in Brooklyn, there never was a reunion. Clarida Greene Gulrich '36, who was my roommate on Terrace Ave., after the Brick fire, has moved from Livingston, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga. Anita Herrick Donahue made California her residence, as her parents moved there after their retirement. Ted Knapp spent three weeks on his second tour of his favorite, Egypt. This time he also took the cruise up the Nile. Dot Shirm Ievers, who lives in County Clare, Ireland, experienced a terrific windstorm during the holidays. She is still attempting to get the damages repaired. Helen Ehrhorn Nuzzo '38 and I were each in the wrong field for women those days; Helen in science, me in math. She went on to Cornell, then managed to get a job paying $100 a month, while telephone operators, out of high school, were getting $90 a week. Those were the Depression years. After three years at The New York Herald Tribune, I got my first teaching job at Silver Creek, N.J., at $1200 a year. Ben Racusin and wife Helen had a belated 50th anniversary, cruising the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with the Rascusin's at their new domicile, the Seabrook, at Hilton Head. It was my first visit to the area and I was given a great tour of not only Hilton Head but quaint Savannah. Dot House Crisjohn '34 of Yale, Okla., had read my article a while ago about Jim Thorpe in which I mentioned I was at a party for him in Silver Creek. The Thorpe family lives near Dot and she is acquainted with them. While on the subject of celebrities, I happened to find an interesting article about Bernarr Mcfadden in a recent copy of the Smithsonian. I'm sure we all remember the dinner dances held at his resort on Thursdays. I had always known he was famous for physical culture, but I did not know he had invented exercise machines and was publisher and owner of many magazines listed under the Mcfadden Publication. I recently lost my Florida roomie ~ she got married, in October. Thelma Bates McAloon '36 became Thelma Ames '36 of North Carolina. In July, I was invited to the southern part of Switzerland to visit a family for a weekend. My final destination was London, by way of Geneva. It was my third visit to London, but I hadn't visited Europe for 25 years. On my return to Washington, D.C., I had the experience of being on the latest 777. Before closing, I do want to wish Melody McLay H'97 good luck in her new job as director of summer programs. I have enjoyed working with her. I also want to mention we are all sorry to hear that Col. Larry March '45 will no longer be writing his column. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. Do read his final remarks on page 27 in the '97 Fall edition. He wrote for seven years. It will be a hard act to follow.
