WESTERVILLE, OHIO, AUGUST, 1931

COMMENCEMENT BEST IN YEARS Brilliant and Witty Address Given By William Lyon Phelp s June 15, 1931 occurred the 75th an­ nual commencement. The ,day was ideal and the campus, as usual, was beautiful. The day was well begun by numerous class breakfasts where the members ·with their families met and renewed the friendships of other years a11d planned for larger reunions the next time. The business session of the Alumni Association was held in the "Y" building at 10:00 o'clock This was the best attended business session in many years, not only was the number in attendance satisfactory but the repre entative character of those present gave cause for pleasure. They ranged from Mrs. L. R. Harford of the class of '72 to "Sparky'' Schear of '29, and geographically from many states. Dr. James H. Weaver, '07, president of the Association presided with Mrs. Helen Ensor Smith, '18, secretary. After · "a getting acquaint­ ed period" during which each one present was introduced, president Weaver called on Secretary L. W. \i\Tarson for the report of the year's work After discussion it was de­ cided that the Alumni Association would make a special effort this year to increase the number of active members. Almost 300 sat down to the Alumni Luncheon 111 the U. B. Church at 11 :3-0. As the commencement was to take •place at 2 :00 p. 111. no formal program was given. There was the roll of ,classes and reading of greetings from the oldest alumna, introduction of some of those who had not been back for many years followed by ad­ journment to the auditorium. The crowd at commencement was great-many not able to be seated. President W. G. Clippinger presided. The speaker for the occasion was Dr. William Lyon Phelps of Yale Univer(Oontinued On Page Two.)

MORE MEMBERSHIPS NECESSARY Enclosed you will find a membership slip. If you have not already enrolled please fill out this blank and return to this office. It is essential that the Al­ umni keep its organization up to the highest level of efficiency for the next few years if we are to help the college push ahead in this period of competition and economif; stress. The ad­ mm1stration asks it; the Board of Trustees endorses it; 300 alumni at commence­ ment approved it. There should be a goodly num­ ber of sustaining members. Now, altogether, lets set a new high record for this year.

OUR HOMECOMING October 17, 1931

Everybody who can, should plan to return to the Fall Homecoming. These Homecoming days are growing in popularity and rival commencement in attendance and interest. This year Homecoming will occur on Saturday, October 17, with a football game be­ tween Capital University and Otter­ bein. There is a great deal of friend­ ly rivalry between these neighboring schools and it is migration day for the visiting school. Plans are already under way for a great day. Mark the clay on your calendar NOW and plan to enjoy the game and the crowd. Our old friend, F. 0. VanSickle is planning a feast of some kind for those athletes of the period from 1900 to 1910. If any other friends of other years want to meet the friends of their school period, other meetings can be arranged. REMEMBER THE DATE.

ALUMNI SECRETARY REPORTS CONDITION

The report of the Alumni Secretary, at the business session on Monday, June 15, ,vas well received and al­ though the financial report was dis­ appointing it was the unanimous opin­ ion that the work ·should be carried on with each one working for a larger active membership for the year 1931-32. The report again emphasized the general aims of the Alumni Associa­ tion through the Alumni Council and secretary which are: To secure more active cooperation of the Alumni with the college and the Board of Trustees, thus advanc­ ing the interests of the institution. To keep in touch with the under­ graduates' interests and activities, and encourage the highest standards. To assist in publicity and in inter­ esting students in attendance at Ot­ terbein. To assist in organizing and main­ taining the organization of local Al­ umni Groups. To assist in raising funds from time to time for the various college uses. The following are a few excerpts from the report: Group meetings were held in many places on Otterbein Night. At vari­ ous times during the year other meet­ ings of the alumni were held. Re­ ports of these meetings were sent to the alumni office with a list of officers elected and the activities of the club. As pu:bli-city director almost daily conferences have been held when on the -campus with the student ,corres­ spondents on matters of publicity. Pictures and cuts were secured, and this material was then sent to papers throughout Ohio and to the Associat­ �d Press. Probably more newspaper publicity was secured this year than in any recent year. As Director of the Bureau of Ap­ pointments the spring months are filled with conferences with seniors when on the campus. Much ,corres( Continued On Page Four.)
