THE OWL SUMMER BULLETIN
ses esese nae
WIS NW 7 Ra
A very cordial reception was extended to the May-June
s3sue of THE OWL. Meny arong the Alumni thought so favorably
ot the issue that they made it a point to express their
appreciation. we are grateful to them. A word of encourage-
mont sometimes goes @ long way.
The question on everybody's lips was;"ARE YOU GOING TO
DQint THE OW IN THE rUTURz?" The answer had to be;"IT DEPENDS"
Depends on what? It depends entirely upon our alumi subscrib+*
ers. Why on them? We will tell you.
- TP RVERY ALUMNUS WHO RECEIVES THE OWL WOULD PAY HIS SUB-
SCRIPTZON PROMPTLY, THEM WE WOULD BE ABLE TO PRINT THE OWL
WITHOUT RAISING THS SUBSCRIPTION RATES. As a matter of fact t
there are just 100 alwnni who although receiving THE OWL
regularly month after month, HAVE NoT, AS YET, PAID THE 1927-
"well, why don't you raise the price? The rest of the
Alumi are willing to pay double the price, The Owl is surely
There's the rub. We are very much opposed to raising our
rates. THE OWL started out life, almost four years 46°, with
an edition no larger or more imposing than this Bulletin, at
a subscription price of 1.00 per year. Year py year it has
increased in size, in general make-up and appearance, but the
One Dollar has remained the same. With economical management,
a pay-as-you-G0 policy, and the loyal support of the alumni as
a Whole, we have met all our expenses and made THE OWL self-
supporting from the start.
Are we going to 60 ahead? Are we going to put forth every
issue as we did the last? We submit that question to you,
Brother Alumnus. If you wish to answer in the affirmative, Say
it with One Dollar, your 1928-1929 tax,- say it, by all means,
with Two Dollars, if you have not paid your 1927-1928 sub-
scription. And say it Now!! For we want to arrange, if it is
to be, our printing contract for 1925-1929 as soon as
possible. To date, ther are fifteen or twenty paid up for
1928-1929. May the number steadily grow.
THE ALUMNI BANQUET of 1928"
The Alumni Banquet held at Penn A.C. on Tuesday evening,
June 5th., judging from personal observations and the consensus
of opinion, was one of the best banquets in recent years. We
would "hate" to tell you what percentage of the assembled
gathering had Engineering training, for fear that you would
think we were given to over exaggeration with a distinct
partiality for Engineers. There were Engineers at almost
every table and there were tables with only Engineers. They
were not all local Engineers either..
A rather casual. survey seems to give the palm to the
Engineers of Twenty-Six for the best class representation.
