The Chief Gets An Alarm
And Fire Drives Right Up
PASADENA, Calif., Oct. 19-( P)-
The quiet of quaint little Sierra Ma-
dre, nestling in the mountains near
here, was disturbed by jangling
alarm bells in the fire department.
Chief D. W. Richards picked up his
phone and a woman's voice told him
a fire was on its way to the station.
A few minutes later a smoking auto-
mobile stopped in front of the fire
house, where firemen turned the hose
on it.

'Old Grad' Reminisces About
Campus Life Of 50 Years Ago


{' '
r -: ...


The local officials of the Alumni
Association are busy conducting an
extensive search of their files for the
names of those graduates who are
now eligible for membership in the
Emeritus Club.
At the request of Dr. Thomas H.
Trueblood, professor emeritus of the
speech department, they are seeking
the names of alumni who matricu-
lated on the campus 55 or more years
ago this fall. "Old Grads" who come
under this classification are quali-
fied to join the ranks of this society.
Last June when the annual con-
vention was held, close to 50 mem-
bers of the club were in attendance.
The fact that. these reunions are
filled with significance for these men
is demonstrated by the statements of
Chester H. Rowell, '88, who is one
of the most distinguished alumni of
the University, after attending the
His column entitled "An Old Grad
Looks Backward," which appeared in
the San Francisco Chronicle, says:
"This is written on the train, return-
ing to Chicago from Ann Arbor,
where the writer has been attending
the class reunion on the forty-fifth
anniversary of his graduation from
the University of Michigan. Five
years ago, on the fortieth anniver-
sary, he made the University Com-
mencement address, but this year, as
a mere private member of the next
to oldest class to hold a quintennial
reunion, there was better opportunity
to renew old associations. After the
fiftieth, there are no more separate
class reunions; the oldsters are then
dumped together into the "Emeritus
Club," ignoring class years. The old-
est here today was of the class of
1868. Last year there was one of
'. But the "Emeritus Club" of
this college reunion sounded a more
cheerful note. Here were no with-
ered old men just sitting and waiting
with little to remember and nothing
to hope, but the selected best of their
time, trained and intelligent, looking
back on lives of intellectual activity
and achievement and still eager, in-
terested and interesting, keenly alive.
Old age like theirs is something to
look forward to; not to shrink from.
"These old college towns are al-
most timeless. The students are al-
ways the same age, and time seems
also to stand still for the old trees
and the old houses, and even for the
human fixtures. George Wahr, who

has sold books in the same shop for
over fifty years, remembered the stu-
dent of long ago who had the freak
habit of buying books in strange lan-
guages, that had to be searched for
at the ends of the earth. Evidently
a modern student with that habit
would be a freak still. At any rate,
the shelves were full of textbooks to
learn the usual languages- Greek,
Latin, French, German and Spanish
-but few other books in even these
languages to indicate that anybody
ever used the languages after study-
ing them, and of course, almost noth-
ing in the outlandish tongues.
* * *
"College students of journalism
may incidentally be shocked to learn
the equally freak fact that the writ-
er's principal educational preparation
for his first newspaper editorship
consisted of a knowledge of media-
eval languages like these, all of them
twice as dead as Greek. He had
studied in college not one minute of
history, economics or political sci-
ence, and scarcely any English com-
position. Somehow, he managed
eventually to overcome part of the
handicap of these early educational;
deficiencies. But go not thou and do
Briggs Addresses
Engineers On NRA
"The NRA has a socialistic, not an
individualistic program, with the
well-being of' society for its aim. It
has its weaknesses, but the present
administration has nerve, and if wej
co-operate, realization of that pro-
gram appears feasible," said Robert
P. Briggs of the economics depart-
ment Wednesday night in an address
to the student branch of the Ameri-
can Society of Mechanical Engineers
in the Union.
In a detailed, thorough-going sur-
vey of the whole recovery program,
Mr. Briggs said there was nothing
certain about the outcome of the
present program. His speech con-
centrated upon those parts of the
NRA concerned with industrial re-
covery and public works.
Following the talk members of the
society discussed the question infor-
mally for a full hour, giving particu-
lar attention to labor codes and con-
sumer protection under the "New
