Y 99 Park Place, Brooklyn, N. Y.
Our old Varsity baseball captain is practicing law and getting good
plums in New York in the firm of MacKenzie and Burr which has
associated with it the Hon. J. VanVechten Olcott, Member of Con-
gress, from the Fifteenth District of New York.

Charley is the attorney for the New York Evening Mail.
Boys, do you remember those two home run swats against Yale ?
Chip went nosing down to Hot Springs, Va., when President Taft
was there and got into a ball game with all the big bugs. Twice he
cleared the bags with his trusty willow and history repeated itself.
After getting so far into the lime-light he nearly ruined the hit he


had made by lining a swift one to Mr. Hitchcock, now Postmaster-
General, and putting a finger entirely out of business.

Mackenzie is a prominent member of the Canadian Club of New
York, an organization composed of Canadians or the children of
Canadians residing in the United States, its purpose being to promote
and foster the friendly relations now existing between the United
States and Canada. Every year the thousand odd members give a
dinner in New York, and Chip was deputized this year to secure
the speakers. This mission brought him to Washington to see the
President and the French and English Ambassadors. At odd hours
he gave the Record the benefit of his wisdom and advice. A brief
pen picture of Chip : A husky two hundred and twenty-five pounder,
sparsely thatched and with an extremely well fed look. He is a
member of the Princeton Club of New York. His letter is brief:
"There is little in the incessant grind of a lawyer's life that would
be of any particular interest to my friends. My innate modesty
prevents me from recording feats accomplished, which after all are
but incidents in our daily life. I am not and never have been en-
gaged in politics or matrimony, and therefore two important branches
of social life, which are open for discussion to many men, are closed
to me."

College, Maryland, receiving the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws.
"Up to the present", he says, "a decent sense of the fitness of things
and a Hibernian sense of humor have prevented my making any use
of this adornment. Aside from the publication for our own use
of a book of "Laboratory Directions in Experimental Physics", my
work has been confined entirely to teaching and administrative du-
ties. At one time I was on the Committees on Attendance, Discip-
line and Outdoor Sports where I had to meet the most entertaining
members of the various classes, the liars, the sports and the athletes.
While the "pollers" are, of course, among the really admirable part
of the undergraduates, they are not as amusing from a disciplinary
standpoint as our undesirable citizens. For the last five years it
has been my sincere pleasure to serve as secretary of the faculty com-
mittee on outdoor sports. In this position I have been the faculty
representative in all of Princeton's athletic relations. During all
of this time my admiration for the manliness and clean living of our
athletes and for the marked business ability and straightforward
honesty of our athletic managers has been constantly increasing. It
is a privilege to pay a tribute to these fine youngsters. Life in
Princeton is ever delightful and I am looking forward to the time
when the good old class will get together, even if for only five or
six days."

Shirrell Norton McWilliams

pr ii8 Lexington Ave., Buffalo, N. Y.
h 303 D. S. Morgan Building, Buffalo, N. Y.

Our "Old Skinny Mac." is in the insurance business in Buffalo
representing the Travelers Insurance Company of Hartford, Conn.,
and claims to have a very new and original line of "hot air."

He is the Treasurer of the Oakfield Club, an organization located
near his summer home, and the President of the Princeton Club of
Buffalo, which he says "is a corking, lively young baby."

Skinny is the official promoter of all of the alumni functions in
Buffalo and is a member of the Princeton Club of New York.

Guffey is the Record's authority that our old "Julius Caesar" is
something of an actor. Joe got off the train in Buffalo last fall and
upon the first bill-board he saw was affixed an enormous twenty-
four sheet lithograph of Skinny, depicting a scene from a skit or take
off of Elinor Glyn's "Three Weeks". Across the top was printed
SHIRRELL NORTON McWILLIAMS in barn-door size lettering.
Joe said that the show was a tremendous hit in Buffalo and that
Skinny on the tiger-skin rug was a picture no artist could paint.

September 29th, 1896, Mac. married Mabel L. Johnson. Their
children are :

Esther Elisabeth, born December 28th, 1897,

M. Leetta, born October 21st, 1899,

John James, born August 2nd, 1904.

Mac. writes: "These dates have been O. K.'d by the Missus."
Better install a card index down at the office, Skinny, so you can
check up your position in the race for the Wilson cup at any time.
The Record went after Skinny for a more detailed story of his young
life and this is his brief reply: "What con game are you working?"

Mandeville is a member of the firm of Gray and Mandeville, Gen-
eral Agents of the Equitable Life Assurance Society for the State
of New Jersey.

He writes that there is a lull in the insurance business just at this
time and that in consequence of this his feelings are not fit to print.


The Record suggests that Mandeville and McWilHams be matched
during the reunion in a competitive "spiel" to write a poHcy for
Squire Buckelew, the winner to receive a medal of merit.

Our rosy-faced Class Secretary is with the Titanium Alloy Manu-
facturing Company of Niagara Falls. This is what he says : "You
ask me what the Titanium Alloy Mfg. Co. is. To tell you the truth
I hardly know. It is a company that manufactures titanium alloy
which is used in some way in the hardening of iron and steel and
with good results it is said. I am convinced that the scheme will be
a big success if we can overcome the law of gravitation. I regret
to say that I am not the office-boy, because my stenographer is
partial toward brunettes. What business have I to get married?
Last month I spent twenty-three nights on a sleeping car. You have
heard about that man with the Waterbury watch and the one-armed
paper-hanger with the hives, both very busy men. Well, Tit-Wil-

Horace is a counsellor-at-law and a Master and Examiner in Chan-
cery in Camden, N. J.

He says: "Have had a great deal of enjoyment, especially during
the last year, in four or five brisk cross-country rides each week. The
result is that I am feeling fine, and the fellows in a rough rider class
which I attend once a week, think I am about twenty five instead of
an old grad. about to go back to his fifteenth reunion. A little
swimming and golf during the summer furnishes the balance of the
relaxation which I need from an extremely busy practice. Certainly
the habit of exercise which we form at Princeton is a great thing to
keep us young."

Horace is a member of the Princeton Club of Philadelphia.

October 19th, 1898, Nixon married Caroline Denny and they have

Patterson is an attorney in Pittsburgh, and is counsel for the "Big

lately departed T. R. resulted in innumerable suits, claims and de-
mands of all sorts against these downtrodden public servants to
such an extent that he has been up to his eyes in work ever since.

"I live a life of unremitting toil, which does not permit of much /\.
excursion into the realms of literature, fancy or politics. As a
matter of fact, my daily life is composed of a morning trip to the
office, a struggle there for daily bread, a trip home, and as our old
friend Pepy says, "and so to bed". Epics have been written with
little else as foundation.

days when the iron business was prosperous and when gfaft was
