not a fifth part of the actual Alumni news is published, just be
cause we cannot find out the other four-fifths. But how are we
to find it out if those who know don't tell us ? It may seem a

made. As the absence of Commencement Drill will be missed by
Visitors at that time, it is to be hoped that some arrangement can
be made before the opening of College next Pall, by which drill.
