s PEAKING of changes . . . ! We came to Abbot with long skirts and short hair, and lived on the floor! Many are the fourth wild tales told of that first year!

" The old order changeth, yielding place to new, and God fulfills Himself in many ways lest one good custom should corrupt the world. " Just twenty-five years ago our country entered the last war — the " war to end wars. " The reconstruction period was borne cheerfully because people com- placently thought there would be peace and democ- racy forever. Now in 1942 we are plunged into a war involving the whole world, in which not only our ideals and those privileges which we take to be the fundamentals of democracv are at stake, but our very survival as well. All of this spells change — in our mode of life, in our habits of thinking, in our expec- tations for the future. All of this requires courage, imagination, and steadfastness of purpose. With the thought in mind of the " changes which are sure to come " to us all, but which, nevertheless, " we do not fear to see " because we know that without change there can be no growth, the Yearbook Board of 1942 gives its volume of The Circle into your hands.
