Barbara Jean Rounce Roache 49 attended her 50th class reunion in May. After returning home to San Francisco, she wrote: The 50th and 60th class reunions were really wonderful. I hadnt been back since my 25th. The Alumni Office had everything planned perfectly. They saw to it that we all had a great time. I think other alumni coming to their 50th and 60th would like to know what a memorable time we had--and they can too.
Wallace R. Wally Danielson 50, of San Diego, responded to the summer 1999 Montanan article on womens basketball at UM in 1902 with a question about Miss Mable Jones, described therein as a powerhouse center and noted goal thrower. Wallace asked, Could that be the Mabel Jones that taught me eighth grade English at Missoulas Willard School about 1938? He remembers her as a legend . . . ferocious, demanding. No one fooled around in her class. Wally continued, I hope its the same Jones, because having been a star basketball player at the turn of the century would only add to her glory. Anyone have the answer?

A graduate in home economics, Hariklia was an extension agent, a home economics teacher and a director for a college level school of economics in Athens. I am flattered to say that I offered a lot of assistance to the promotion of home economics in Greece, she adds.

Ive always keep vivid in my mind the years I spent in Missoula and consider them to be the happiest years of my youth.

More than 9,000 cases are filed annually in the Ninth Circuit, which includes Montana. Most attorneys dont do a lot of federal appellate practice, Paul says, so this book is not about theory. Its about what the lawyer actually does in the Ninth Circuit--the environment, the pitfalls. A set of the volumes has been donated to the UM Law School. Paul, a resident of Phoenix, also enjoys writing and directing comedy revues and political satire.

Anonymous Thank You Gift Presented UMAA
We fell in love with each other and the University when we were students there, and weve wanted to give back directly to the organization that has given so much to us, to other alumni and to the community. So spoke the anonymous couple who recently gave the Alumni Association an unrestricted gift of $10,000. Weve enjoyed so many of the events the Alumni Association has hosted, and we especially enjoyed the Community Lecture series last winter. Weve frequently heard from friends who live across the United States about the wonderful times they have had at alumni events.
We are excited about this generous gift, Alumni Director Bill Johnston stated. Funding Alumni outreach effots is a constant challenge. It is important for alumni and friends to know that gifts can be earmarked for the Alumni Association as well as for other departments across campus. Gifts of this size are uncommon for the Alumni Association, making it all the more special. This money will be used to help fund future Community Lecture series. The principle will remain intact and only the interest will be spent.
