SILVER AND BLUE 'nil -,nv been ordered to conform to the plans and procedure organized by the dear founder of this institution and the teachers to prepare us as efficiently and as throughly as possible for our- citizenship and for life. We selves have had little to do in this and organized effort but to receive assimilate, as well as we could, the training given us. and im- Our elders of course knew appreciated the tremendeously portant part which our education would play in our later lives and planned for us accordingly. We- until recently at least-realized little cf the significance of the experience through which we were passing, and, to us, active participation in the world of affairs seemed indeed re- mote. Carefree, happy, enjoying life as it came, we passed through these de- lightful years, little recognizing that each day was bringing us nearer to the time of responsibility, the time of going forth to assume our share of life's burdens. Now that time is here! Through these years we have been changing, developing, and grad- ually shifting our relationships with the world about us. Now, over-night it seems, our whole status is changedg today, students under kindly, sym- pathetic guidance, tomorrow, work- ers in the hurly-burly of the work- aday world! Miss Berry. I esteem it among the rarest of my privileges to be permit- ted to address a few words to one so eminent as yourself in the life of service. If it be a joy to know that "Labors of love are not in vain," if it be a pleasure to know that "Seeds of kindness are bearing rich and abundant fruit," may that joy and that pleasure he yours in fullest portion. May you ever be able to look with feelings of heartfelt satis- faction upon all your efforts for the advancement of those who are en- rolled upon the register of your siaunch and noble institution. Dur- ing the years spent here each of us has received a nobler and a higher vision of life, and we will always cherish the sweet memories of the days we have spent here. We will ever strive to perform the things that you have established in our hearts and souls. We realize that it is your love and unceasing service that has laid the foundation for this hour and made it possible for us to assemble here to say farewell. To you, Dr. Green and members of the faculty, who with kind and loving patience have helped and guid- ed us so painstakingly to this very moment, we must say farewell-with hearts filled with gratitude and ap- preciation of all that you have done for us. Fellow-students of the undergrad- uate classes, to you we commend the interests we have hitherto cherished together, knowing that your enthusi- astic loyalty is no less than ours. We welcome you to the place which we are now vacating and we know that you will fill it worthily. Classmates-we come now to the end of the happy road we have trav- eled together for two long years. 'I'hroughout the journey down those years we have like true comrads shar- ed our joys and our sorrows, of dis- couragement there were someg of happy days together there were many. Would that we could go on together Page Twenty-nine

SILVER AND BLUE VDD ,Y -M59 at all times to make the most of every opportunity that our dear foun- der made possible for us. And we trust that our dear teachers may ever find us faithful to those virtues for which they have trained us to stand as we face the problems of life. Our equipment is good, and our armor strong so we shall meet our to face never worldly battles face forgetting our Alma Mater. You ask us where and what we are going to do. Can we say? We may think we have our lives mapped out in a systematic form, but one breath of wind may change the whole shape of our plans and move us completely across the field of creation, to prove to us there is a we are going, "Divinity that shapes our ends, Rough-hew them how we will." But what does it matter where we may be led when we feel the assur- ance that we are doing our allotted part in the divine plang and that whatever we are called upon to do we will do our best ever striving to live up to Miss Berry's ideals for the betterment of self and thus humanity. lt is in this spirit we face the ex- ercises to-day. We have been led through pleasant paths to this bend of the road, here pause eager to take on the life that lies before us. We ask you, then, to join with us with gladsome hearts in the celebra- tion of this hour, and to feel within you the same optimistic conviction that "all's right with the world" as well as with us, as we speak from jojous, hopeful hearts the words of our most cordial and sincere welcome to one and all. VALEDICTO RY Here we pause to look back upon our past, not as one old, growing reminiscent, but as prudent youths at the threshhold of new tasks, who would reminding ourselves of service: recall pledges and at this turning in life, assume new duties we see that nothing is so inevitable in this world as the onward march of time and t'he succession of events. No certainty is quite so certain as that of change. In every realm of nature, in the sciences, in the material, in the in- tellectual and spiritual life of man- kind, any careful observer can per- ceive that the whole world is con- stantly moving forward to the unseen goal-perhaps the millennium, as many believe. Wit'hin this span of one human life, which is but a tiny fraction of the great expanse of time through the age, changes of broad human significance can be seen. Even we, who but a few short years ago were infants in arms, can discern vast changes in ourselves and in the world about us. That is life, moving slowly but surely and inevitable in accordance with the inscrutable scheme of things that guides and controls the destines of the universe. To us, on t'his day of days, this great truth strikes home with peculiar emphasis. That the faces which carry men forward to some inescapable climax cannot be gainsaid, is a fact which, today, stands out in our minds with startling vividness. Throughout the two years we have spent here we have been moving towards this moment. Our lives have Page Twenty-eight

SILVER AND BLUE wal down the long trail of life to the very end! But that we know can- not be. Each of us has his own task to perform, has his own niche to carve, his own service to render to the world. So, dear classmates, the time of parting is here. Each of us must go his separate way and work out, alone, his own destiny. Life is calling to each of us, the challenge of the world rings in our ears-and we must make answer! Classmates, to part thus we ex- perience a feeling' oi' sadness, after these two years spent so joyously together-and yet there is a conso- lation in the thought that, though life may lead us far apart and though the widths of oceans and continents lie between us, we may cherish in our hearts forevermore that unfor- getable comradship which is part of us. Then, too, there will be with us always the sweet and happy memor- ies of the glorious years spent to- gether at college. Absence and dis- tance will serve but to strengthen the bonds of friendship and comrade- ship between us. Time will add its glow to these bygone years, and in retrospect we shall live over and en- joy again the delightful days we have known together at college. With hearts saddened at parting and yet strengthened by the memor- ies and spirits of comradship that will be ours forever, we must bid each other farewell and Godspeed. And now, at last, to you, dear, old school, scene of our joys, our sor- rows, our triumphs, within whose sheltering walls we have spent so many happy hours, we must now say good-bye! What loving memories around you cling, what sweet associa- tions bind you in our hearts! Yes, dear old school, you shall be the symbol off our happiest years so long as life shall 'last-but now, farewell, farewell!

"Young man," he said,"I can never thank you sufficiently for your he- roic act. You incurred an awful risk in saving my only daughter."
