At this writing, the fiscal and membership year 1950-51 has just come close. It was the most successful one for the Association. Throughout its span, the trend of our affairs and activities was steadily progressive.

We hope to have 7,000 members this year and have no intention of losing any of our old members without a fight. Incidentally, we now have 47 Life Members, including nine in the Class of 1951.

Alumni House was well patronized by the various classes holding reunions in May, and there were fifteen wedding receptions held in the House in the period immediately following graduation.

Yes, the year 1950-51 was a most encouraging one for the Association, but don't put a period there because we are just working up to speed.
