The study hail provides a zone
of peace and quiet for the serious
minded. The occasionai student who
happens to he aiiergic to study en-
deavors to secure a blue siip from
the teacher in charge, on the ground
that he has iegai business elsewhere.
The students erupt into the quiet
emptiness of the school cafeteria and
the scene becomes one ot goodna-
tured uproar and confusion. Finally,
settled at a favorite taioie, everybody
Umunches iunchu and talks over the
experiences of the morning.
School is over at 3:03. it is now

these faces is not due to the fact
that their owners are leaving schooig
it can rather he attributed to their

even met algehra. lligures were floating laetore our eyes.
Xve tried to master the French language fthe tongue that
has all the nasal and gultural musical tonesl: We now
truly realized that we were still the audience and not the
perlormers. ln general science, we learned from Mr. Gaul
that living is more than a matter of grams and litersg it
also involves more important things, such as centimeters
and lailowatts. And then we were formally introduced to
Adelphi and her traditions: We were invited to the Mliresh-
man Reception!! During the months that followed this
orientation. our lives hecame patterned-it not orderly. De-
spite the hardships of study. we managed to listen to other
orchestrations on our liield trips. We sang our allegiance
to America at the loot ol the Statue ol Liherty,-and then.
heing still young and coltish. ran up the stairs to her head
in an etlort to catch the last stanza of the pledge.
And we slipped into our sophomore year. The tra-
ditions of Adelphi had not yet Hosmosedm into us: we
still played our separate Umodernn songs. The confusing
prohlems ol algehra laced us once againg for all we lcnew.

XVe had listened and applauded as an audience, and now we hegan
to sing, compose. arrange and weld melodies together. Nye and the school
had a new and helpful leader in Joel Gersten, the president ol the Student
Board. And we were now the supreme summit ol Adelphrs art hut, to
ourselves, we were the same people as loetore. although our minds were
fuller. ln English. we composed literature on dililerent countries: and thus
our virtuosity and creative inspirations were lused. tNevertheless. we still
dreamed of writing "A" papers overnight and were sometimes misguided
enough to try to write passing ones in a day.l Vve produced an Adel-
phian, edited a new printed Oracle, and orchestrated a yearhoolc. The
annual hazaar came upon us, and with newly lound authority. we helped
in malxing it a success. Nve went to shows, attended school dances and
were ejected-gracefully-from the Qracle room. After four years. the
name ol Adelphi hegan to carry a new significance: and the years them-
selves seemed a long crescendo.
ln many ways our class is like those which have gone helore it. Yet
it is dilllerent too-possessing its own distinct personality. Nye are conti-
dent that what was unique and original in us will he remembered. as we
shall always rememher the tour years we spent here.
Every "record" has its finale. ln ours. we should like to say, "Thank
you, Adelphi: thanlc you for the progress we have made and. even more.
for the friendly guidance which made that progress possible."
