The twenty-fifth a n n i v e r s a r y dinner of the Knickerbocker f r a t e r n i t y , with about 70 men in a t t e n d a n c e , was held in the main dining room of t h e W a r m Friend t a v e r n S a t u r day night. In spite of the rain, e x t r a places had to be set f o r those who did not a r r i v e in time f o r t h e first rush for the tables. The banquet could be compared to a revival meeting—a revival of the memories of the days when the society w a s yet in its infancy, f o r which the alumni were largely responsible. President W y n a n d Wichers, as guest speaker of the evening, welcomed the alumni and commended them f o r the p a r t which the organization h a s been able to play on the campus. Marc Brouwer, president of the society, w a s toastm a s t e r , introducing the s p e a k e r s in a very original manner. Rev. Vanden Berg of Zeeland, who was a c h a r t e r member of the society, related in a very interesting way some of the experiences which t h e founders went t h r o u g h . Don Droppers offered a piano solo, Rachmaninoff's " P r e l u d e " as a musical interlude. Then Rev. Bernie Mulder, '19, of Grand Rapids, expressed in a s h o r t talk the t h o u g h t that the society should be a large factor in building up the s t u d e n t ' s character. Jack " H a r p e r " Vander Meulen next played " M o m e n t Musicale" on his violin, accompanied by Don Droppers. He played " P o o r Little Flowe r " as an encore. As the last speaker, Rev. Fred Wyngarden of the clas of '31, e n t e r t a i n e d and inspired the g r o u p with a talk full of original wit and t h o u g h t . Brief plans f o r the organization of an active A l j m n i Association were outlined and officers were elected unanimously. Rev. Vanden Berg, president; Dan Ten Cate, vice p r e s i d e n t ; Waddy Spoelstra, s e c r e t a r y ; and Bill Heyns, treasurer. A m o n g the alumni p r e s e n t were Rev. Vanden Berg, Rev.
