V SILVER AND BLUE 23 of life's duties and privileges, and that we may put into practice some- thing of the vision of a higher, nobler life which we have received here. We feel that in doing this we shall have repaid, to a certain extent, the debt that we owe to Miss Berry and to this school. It is in this spirit that we face these exercises today. We have been led through pleasant paths thus far, and we are eager to make the turn to the larger sphere of life that lies around the corner. We ask you then, dear friends, to join with us with glad hearts in the celebration of this hour, and to accept our assurance of the deep pleasure it offords us for you to be here. We sincerely hope that when we have finished, and the fellowship of this day has faded into memory, you will feel that you are as truly glad you came as we are to have you with us - VALEDICTORY I have been honored with the pri- vilege of representing the class of 1929 before you at this time. Today is our day. We have worked dili- gently in preparing for this glorious occasion and may we now forget at this time that we must soon part, and rejoice because we have climed the ladder of success thus far. To Miss Berry, our first words of parting are due. The farewell word that we would speak to her is full of deeper meaning than we can ex- press. We realize that it is her un- ceasing service and devoted. love that has made it possible that we might assemble here to say farewell- Dur- ing these two years, each of us has received a higher and nobler vision of life. As long as life itself shall last, we shall cherish the memories of the days that we have spent in this institution. We will ever strive to do the things that she has instituted into our hearts and souls. Dr. Green and Members of the Faculty, the time has come for us to leave you and as we address you to- day, we cannot refrain from expres- sing the deep sense of obligation that rests upon us. We have spent two years of our lives under your care and have irsceived training whidh forms a large part of the equipment for our lives. We have passed through this course with a growing respect for your scholarship. We are indeed grateful to you for hav- ing been helpful in the building of our characters. And now, in the name of my class whose representative I am proud to be, I bid you farewell, with the hope that your memory of us may be as pleasant as ours shall always be of you. Fellow-students of the under- graduate class, today we leave this beloved college in your care. You are to walk these halls and paths that we have trod so many times. The duties that were once ours are yours. We are glad that we leave strong-hearted students who love their college and will stand up for her when we are gone. We are leaving her in the most capable hands we know. Neverthe- less, we fell that we must not resign our places in the classroom and on the campus to your full and free en- joyment without reminding you of that old proverb:

22 SILVER AND BLUE Besides these enforced gifts, we leave, not of necessity, but of our own free will, our blessings, tender memories of our pleasant associations together, and our forgiveness for any- thing that we may have not exactly appreciated in the demonstrations of the past, and a pledge of friendship from henceforth and forever. All the rest and residue of our property, whatsoever and whereso- ever, of what nature, kind and qua- lity, whatsoever it may be, and not herein being disposed of, we give and bequeath to our Principal, for his use and benefit, and to be disposed of for the benefit of the coming classes, as he may choose. And we do hereby constitute the said Principal sole executor of this, our last will and testament. In witness whereof, we, the class of 1929, the testators, have to this our will, set our hands and seal this the sixth of May, Anno Domini, one thousand nine hundred and twenty- nine. ,i.l1.1..i1l-. SALUTATORY It is my great privilege today, in behalf of my classmates, to extend to you our most cordial and sincere welcome. We are truly glad that it becomes our pleasure to entertain you for a short time at this turn in the road of life, and we trust that you may have every cause to long remember the association of this hour. To you this may be indeed a pleasant occasion, for we shall cer- tainly do our best to make it so: but at best, it will be only one of many, many such occasions in your life, which, enjoyable as they may be at the time, will be but fleeting in their influence. To us, it is especially significant, and it is bound to live forever in our memories as one of the most important events of our whole lives. Today marks the goal toward which we have persistently striven for the past two years of work and study. It stands forth as the climax of our happy, busy lives here, which have been filled with countless op- portunities for the broadening, up- lifting development that has helped to fit us for the new world upon which we are to turn our faces to- morrow. As we stand on the thres- hold of the strange and unknown future that stretches before us, and pause to consider the full signifi- cance of this occasion, there is a touch of sadness and regret mingled with the joy in our hearts on this our day of days. As we think of severing our dear class ties and fond companionships, and of the many familiar scenes that must be left behind, we realize that the stream of life runs swiftly, and that many and varied are the scenes that must pass before us as we make our way upon its surging waves. As our minds review the experien- ces, the opportunities, and the joys that have been ours during this im- portant period in our lives, we are made to feel as never before the great responsibility that these privi- leges have placed on our shoulders. It is enough, indeed, to call forth the resolve that, whatever the mis- takes of the past, we shall face with unflinching valor the beckoning future that calls us from these scenes into new experiences. It is our hope that we may apply faith like that of our beloved Founder in our share

24 SILVER AND BLUE "Sow a thought-reap an action, Sow an action-reap a habitg p a habit-reap a character: Sow Sow a character-reap a destiny." We shall always remember our companionship with you and we trust that you will remember us. "To you from failing hands we throwg The torch, be yours to hold it high." To you, my dear classmates, the final words of farewell. Never again will we meet as we are now. Un- speakable memories fill our hearts. The sweet scenes which are fast fad- ing behind us, pause to hold our View once more. We shall never forget the happy hours spent together at our class parties and picnics, for there is a place in our hearts that they will ever fill, Let us not think that all is sun- shine nor that fame will wait upon our bidding. "He who would win must labor for the prize." It is the man with high intentions and firm purpose, with unselfish ambitions, and longing for the ideal that knows no failure or defeat. For him alone, all the experiences in life combine to pave the way to further achieve- ments. I can wish nothing higher or happier for us than that through our lives, in joy and sorrows, in brightest sunshine and deepest shad- dow, there may remain with us the consciousness of duty well performed of suffering nobly endured, all of life faithfully lived. With many pleasant memories of our fellowship and the assurance of an unfailing affectionate rememberance, I bid you "Farewell-" SOPHOMORES EXPRESS GRATI- TUDE FOR DELIGHTFUL ENTERTAINMENTS In addition to the class parties and picnics-we have been delight- fully entertained by our class teach- ers and other members of the faculty.
