Class Note 1935

I can’t believe I will soon be 100 years old. My body says this is the case but inside of that body is a 20-year-old still trying to plan for a bright future.


Ed Reich just celebrated his 100th with a big party in Florida to which I was invited, but the trip from California, where I live, would have been too much for me. Ed had and is having a good life, which he deserves.


Irv Sager is getting along just fine. We had a long talk about what is going on at Dartmouth and we both agree that it is a disgrace that the College or the town of Hanover has not cracked down. Sadly I do not recommend to anyone that they apply to Dartmouth. I am no longer proud to say that I am a Dartmouth alum even though I am proud to be an alum of the Dartmouth I was a part of.


Another subject we discussed was the corruption that has become the fabric of our society. The American College Dictionary has a definition of capitalism as the concentration of capital in the hands of a few, or the resulting power or influence; and a system favoring such concentration of wealth. We cannot continue to hide our heads in the sand. I again ask Dartmouth to host a new constitutional convention. We need a fresh approach to our concerns.


Lest we forget, “Vox clamantis in deserto.”


Irv Sager, Ed Reich and yours truly look forward to the future.
