Alumni Official
Tells Of Porto
Rican Vacation
Tapping Reports Interest
Of University Graduates
In MichiganActivities
The interest which alumni in other
parts of the world take in the affairs
of their alma mater was well dem-
onstrated yesterday by T. Hawley
Tapping, general secretary of the
Alumni Association, just returned
from a three weeks' vacation in Porto
His trip, intended as a well-earned
vacation voyage, assumed some of
the aspects of a business trip as
he was pressed into speaking before
alumni groups in the places he vis-
ited. Alumni at every point received
him heartily and conducted him and
Mrs. Tapping all over the island. At
one place where he expected to speak
before a gathering of 20 alumni,
more than 200 were present to greet
"Those alumni have the real Mich-
igan spirit," he said. "And yet when
they were here on campus they were
just the same as you fellows are
now. You won't appreciate that
spirit until you've left here as they
Meets Older Alumni
Some of the older alumni whom
Mr. Tapping met particularly im-
pressed him as being men Michigan
could be especially proud of claim-
ing. Among these were the brothers
Del Vallee, Manuel being of the class
of '91D, and Pedro '91M. These two
were the ones who, when they came
here, first introduced fencing as a
sport on the Michigan campus. Mr.
Tapping spoke of them as "fine, big
strapping fellows" and proclaimed
them both fine men, as well as lead-
ers in their profession.
Another older alumnus who in-
terested Mr. Tapping was Jose C.
Barbarosa, '80M. He was the first
student to come from Porto Rico,
and started the influx of students
from that island before the more
general one following the acquire-
ment of the island by the United'
"It was very interesting to me to
see the respect they had for him,"'
Mr. Tapping said. "There most of'
the alumni are high cast Porto Ri-
cans, but he was a full-blooded
Pro-American Party
"He is generally honored on the
Island, because a month or so-
maybe a week-after the United
States took over the government of'
Porto Rico, he went to see General
Miles, the commander of the army
there. It was then and there that
the Pro-American party was born. Iti
has grown until it now includes mosti
of the intellectuals of the island."
The honor in which he was held
is proven, Mr. Tapping said, by theI
fact that in 1903 he was called back
to Michigan for an honorary degreet
