Fredericton, N.B., January 25, 1928  

Dear Alumna,  

The October meeting of the 
Fredericton Alumnae was a large one and after considerable discussion it was decided to entertain the Freshettes only at the annual Hallowe'en Tea. There are so many girls at College now that the Alumnae felt they would be better in touch with them individually if they were entertained in smaller groups. The three upper classes will be guests of honour at the Valentine Supper Party - the Freshettes serving - the Alumnae sitting with their guests.  
The October meeting appointed a committee to look into the question of a residency for the girls. It was a strange coincidence that about a month after this step was taken word came of the gift of a men's residency from Lord and Lady Beaverbrook. How gladly  
we would accept a similar gift or any assistance towards attaining our goal. We hear from the alumnae of Queen's University that after the first year, their residency has been self supporting.  
Rumours are circulating, though nothing official has yet been announced that plans are under consideration for the erection of a new building to house the Forestry School, that the government is being approached regarding a building for our library, that reunion will be held at the coming Encaenia in honour of the first three graduates placed in College Hall in commemoration of the event. Let us hope these good things will come to pass.  
It is with sincere regret that we have to tell you that during the past year death has claimed two of our members, Miss Ella Thorne, M.A., and Mrs. Akerley (Marjorie Hanson).  
We have a new Lifemember, Mrs. Donald Lindsay (Marjorie Tracy).  
She was made a Lifemember by her mother, and is our seventh. Three more and we shall be able to purchase our second bond. You will remember the Lifemembership fees are invested as capital, not used as current expenses.  
Miss Amanda Quinn, who is teaching in Campbellton, was with us at our January meeting.  
A number of our graduates are at present taking advanced courses. Miss Isabell Bliss, who has been awarded a scholarship, is working for her Ph.D. at Chicago, while Miss Mary Jones, Miss Dorothy Phillips and Miss Marion Upham are studying at Edinburgh.  
To Mr. and Mrs. Myles Gibson (Lilian Corbett) of Victoria, B.C., twins.  
Miss Isabell Thomas is teaching this year in Victoria and Mrs. Ernest Boxall (Edith Davis) and Mrs. White (Ida McLeod) are also living there.  
Miss Claire Douglass has taken Miss Mary Jones' school at Sussex.  
Miss Betty Hawkins has gone to Baltimore for a special course at the John Hopkins Hospital.  
Miss Edith Jones has accepted a position at Penn Hall, Chambersburg, Pa.  
Miss Gladys Gregory has returned from Paris and resumed her teaching in the Fredericton High School, and Miss Edith MacRae has given up her school in Sussex and is also a member of the Fredericton High School Staff.  
With best wishes for a happy and prosperous 1928.
