ALUMNI NOTES

Although the alumni have not been very active in the past, they are now organized as the "Polytechnic Alumni" and intend to take an enthusastic and important part in school affairs.
All graduates, and students who have attended Poly for a year or more are eligible to membership.

Their names have only to be signed to the list of alumni and they are doubly loyal and royal "Polyites!" The annual meeting of the Alumni will be held at the school auditorium on May 10th, when the officers for next term will be elected.

The officers for this year were: Edward GOLDMAN, president, and Marie FORMAN, secretary.

Many changes have taken place among the alumni. Here are just a few.

The social event of this term was the dance given on Saturday night, April 22nd, at Sorosis Hall.

Invitations were extended to all Poly graduates, former pupils, friends and under graduates, and, true to their old spirit, over 250 of them were there; brimful of enthusiasm, gossip and excitement at seeing one another again. In fact there was so much excitement, that the music was but an "echo in the distance" during most of the eveing, while joyous feet danced to the chatter of renewed acquaintances.
