The Last Word
Thus we present to you, generous reader, the 1931 volume
of the Oak. We know that we have made mistakes in com-
piling it, that we have overlooked omissions, and that our
selection of material has not always been good. But we ask
you to remember that this is our first attempt, and to at-
tribute, therefore, in part, the shortcomings of our publica-
tion to our inexperience and immaturity.
We wish to make acknowledgment, in this place, ofthe
splendid co-operation that we have had in our work. We
feel that everyone that has had a part in the publishing of
this volume has willingly and generously done his best. To
all our co-workers, members of the faculty and students, we
extend our sincere thanks for their help. We wish to thank
especially Mrs. Nellie D. Clement, for her invaluable counsel
in the designing of our art pages, and for her generosity in
allowing us the time and talent of her classes. To Miss
Christine Wilbourne, art editor, is due great praise for the
hand-lettering, as well as for much of the decorative design of
the book. And to our sponsors, Miss Christine Hammock
and Miss Helen Aduddell, we extend our grateful thanks for
time, thought, and energy, that they have given us in excess
of mere duty.
With this our senior year, we are finishing the first lap of
our journey, but our story is not yet ended. Graduation has
not been our goal-it is only a halting at the cross-roads.
Tomorrow we shoulder our packs, and travel on-toward
