Posthaste: To get nearly 16,000 letters into the U.S. mail on time last week took rapid but methodical last- minute checking by Admissions staffers including Elsie H. Loyola and Willie Bishop (top). Next came high-speed sealing-and- postage operations at Penn Mail Service, where two of the many who pitched in were Phil Falcone (middle) and Thomas A. Harley (bottom). At 12:01 a.m. April 3, the Class of the Year 2000 was in the mail. (Compass story.) Photos by Jenny Friesenhahn
