The Alumni Association sponsored Tailgates before the Yale game
on 16 November; sorry, no information about them. But
the Class’s traditional Cocktail Party at Terrace Club after the game
had a nice turnout, with wonderful food and drink and good comradeship. Not in attendance there
but known to be around somewhere were Batcheller, Briggs, Lippincott, and McGlynn; there may have
been others who escaped notice.
At the party were (from left) Klineberg, Fisher, Hughes, Ippolito, Detjens, Conway,
Joan Sachs Shaw, Willard, Szvetecz, Southwell, and Max, along with latecomers Beaver and Howson.
Also in attendance were Bill Sachs ’66 and various spouses.

Quoting from the Tiger E-News for 14 October:
“A substantial bequest from industrialist and philanthropist William S. Dietrich II '60 will
endow the University's Economic Theory Center, which has been renamed [as the William S. Dietrich II Economic Theory Center] in his honor. His gift will also support
undergraduate and graduate student financial aid by establishing a fund for the William S. Dietrich II Scholars and Fellows.”
