Thanks to the kindness of Harold Bugbee, Secretary of our friendly neighbors, the Class of 1920, and an assist from his brother, Perk, also 1920, we have a copy of an outstanding tribute paid to an outstanding member of the Class of 1921. It is an illustrated pamphlet from the Rotary Club of Honolulu, honoring Harry P. Field and proposing him for the office of director of Rotary International. Much too long to quote here, the brochure reveals that Harry was president of the Rotary Club of Honolulu, variously member and chairman of some 12 of its committees, and a district governor active in many regional and international committees and conventions. He has a long list of community endeavors, such as that of serving as an Educational Counselor for Technology. His recent retirement from the Hawaiian Electric Company as vice-president and commercial manager after 34 years of service has served only to increase these activities. When he and Catharine arrive at the reunion directly from their long trip to the Rotary convention in Tokyo, we hope congratulations will be in order for a newly elected director of rotary.

Our class can now boast of a first-class prize winning fisherman in the person of Royal Sterling. Nice going Roy! the following letter from him is self-explanatory, and tells of some of his activities during February: "Mary and I are vacationing in Florida. On the way home we are stopping at Tapa, Mobile and New Orleans. (Home is in Rhode Island.) Thought you might be interested to know that last Wednesday we flew over to West End in the Grand Bahama Island. Friday, on the way back from fishing we stopped to put out light lines with small bait to do some bottom fishing. I caught an 180-lb. shark on a 30-lb. test line. It took over an hour to boat it. It is good for a citation and prize in the Bahamas Winter Fishing tournament. The previous record was a 75-lb. one caught in the Andros Island area."...
