To express ideas well L -is -aging hard enough in any event, but to speak for the retiring Man- I Board of Volume XLIX is particularly so. To give the L i -reactions to foulr years full of varied experiences is no small task. X ~Along with the elation at release from responsibility there -is a feeling of sincere regret. To the Senior who looks back over his years at Technology, his work on the activities is what I stands out. It is thro-ugh them that he has made most of his friends, both among the undergraduates and the faculty. It is in them that he has found outlet for what initiative and creative -genius he may have. Very likely contacts made while doing ~*his extra-curricular work will lead to a position when he leaves the Institute. We on THE TECH appreciate to the fullest extent all these| advantages. We have enjoyed our work, and will probably pester the new men with senile ideas. As MacGregor Jenkins, <r the editor of "The Atlantic Monthly" told us Saturday evening, -} "When once printers' ink gets into your blood, it is there to stay." And of course THE TECH agrees with "'The Atlantic ~rMonthly". :'Frankly, we ar e proud of this last Volume. Forty-eight boards have no doubt made that statement, and with lreasons of their own. Ours ar e these: primarily, we have done our best to aid in the "Use Walker" campaign. Throughout last spring and this fall THE TECHI has recorded the vcarious steps in the program, and has urged the students to greater enthusiasm. At Ar present, with a student committee at work on the possibilities of changes, there is high hope for an adequate Walker Me- -tmorial, This problem and others we have presented to Tech- ;>nology graduates in the "Alumni Issue", which carried the It important events of the past two years. We have watched the -I ise of Technology in athletics, and have chronicled the sue- cesses of the T. C. A. In carrying out the policy "First with the Latest", we have changed the time of publication from morning tK until nloon, with great benefit to all concerned. !With the knowledge that the paper is in good hands, we re- tire, with regret, pride and joy. The best of luck for 1930! MUTUAL BENEFITS Cl ARRYING out a sincere attempt to assure the success of its plan, this year's Senior Endowment Insurance Commrittee is -aannouncing its choice of an insurance policy before the mid- term examinations. After careful consideration of the merits -,of the various propositions submitted byr all insurance com- panies operating in Massachusetts, the committee has decided jto accept that of the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Com- pany of Milwaukee. The group feels that it has wisely solved a weighty problem, Rel-Dov ini ental arriers and the Class of 1930 will no doubt agree. There are several representative.

The Northwestern's plan affords several options: the policy may be continued as a "whole-lif e" policy; it may be matured as a paid up life policy at the end of twenty-seven years; or it may be matured as an endowment policy after twenty-seven years. As 'BELL SYSTEM for the company's representative, he is Frederick Bernard '17, nation-wvide system of inter-conneccting telephoner *.S, a man actively interested in Technology affairs and one who is able to appreciate the student's point of view.
