SILVER AND BLUE WF HISTORY For four long years we have striven, blazing a trail toward the goal of our ambition. We are now at the thresh- hold with our hand stretched forth to receive the coveted prize. There were some one hundred fresh- men to enter the Freshman class of nineteen-twenty eight. By a process more or less, the survival of the fittest, we graduated thirty-six from the Sophomore class in thirty C'30J. The college was only a Junior College then. Then it was announced that senior work had been added to the curri- culum. All of us were happy at the announcement. Nineteen remained to take further work toward our degrees. Then a check-up on the final lapse we find eighteen of the one hundred freshmen now seniors. The road we have traveled has by no means been a path of roses. How often we have burned midnight oil and find the morrow greeting us with long monotonous classes. Many a time we had rather slept than go to a bore- some class, but-we did go. Occas- ionaly to sleep-even after all this we have gained the honor of the name, Seniors: envied by Juniorsg respected by Sophomores, and looked upon with awe by Freshmen. Yet we love to think over the past years and tell of our freshman ex- periences-as, and with freshmen. We have had our part of the unpleasant ones-yes our share but those pleasant ones overshadow the afore mentioned by far. We have been called "pioneers". Rightfully so too, because we being the first Senior class had to clear the trail. We are proud of our name be- cause it takes courage and confidence to explore regions untouched before. In every phase of life you can find our class well represented. Not one member has failed to show his or her leadership ability by being placed in some responsible ofiice of the various campus clubs. Nine members are in the Honor Club, an organization to encourage academic achievementsg five in the "X" Club, an organization for those having shown exceptional leadership ability, five have won the John J. Eagan Scholarship for highest average in scholastic workg we have musicians in choir and orchestrag and represen- tatives in basketball, baseball and track. We are happy to be seniors and feel we have contributed much more service this year than in our former years. So on the whole, our class, though not an extraordinary one, is up to the average. We are small in number, but have offered a hand will- ing to push forward into regions un- explored and open up the way for those following. We realize we have made great progress and have made a good start in life. Let us remember, all are expecting great things of us as "pioneers," and so shape our future courses as to bring honor and credit to the first class and much more honor to our Alma Mater. ' ' No Can Opener for Him The farmer grumbles, groans, and growls, Yet I call him a lucky man- The eats placed on his table Did not come from a can. Page Fourteen

SILVER AND BLUE PROPHECY "The present still is echo of the past: Of both, the future will an echo be". There are among us many indi- vidualities, many different futures to be worked out along many different lines, it is impossible that any two among you should have the same destiny, and yet each one desires the same ultimate result-success. Whe- ther you will have it or not, remains with yourselves. For four years you have been earnest, sincere seekers after new truths, gain- ing strength and power, physically and mentally, forming beautiful lasting friendships with the great minds of literature, and above all, a broader, sweeter sympathy towards all of the world. Have you gained anything of value for yourselves? What are you going to do with it? Cherish it? You are going forth to give of your store to those who lack. Those of you who have sincerely adopted the principles taught here, who have truly entered into the spirit of this institution are going forth to work-to sincere, earnest service to all who need you. You will not be discouraged if the world does not rush to you, demanding what you have. Neither will you sit quietly down and let the world wonder and then seek youg but you will be aggressive, you will carry your truths to people and cause them to see them so clearly that they must accept them. As you go out from this college you will not drop those principles and ideals which you have adopted so en- thusiastically here, nor let them slip from you by contact with the world, IN, but you will continue to live them as faithfully as when under the inspira- tion of our college itselfg for the world measures you not by what you say, but by what you are. This is the future that I read from your past. You have learned how to think, to work, and to live, but the end is not yet. You will continue to be students in your study of life's larger book as you go forth as helpers and teachers. Teachers-some in the ordinary sense of the word, others as agri- culturists, others as lawyers, or per- haps doctors, while some will carry the same spirit into the more sacred circle, the home. You will go forth with your best to serve the world, and as the world sees the service, it will acknowledge you and assume your success. Be true to your principles, be true to your- selves: "And it must follow as the night the day Thou canst not then be false to any man". Class of 1932, you will be true, true in the greatest, true in the least, and in the Great Tomorrow which we are to help make-may God bless us, everyone. When a bit of sunshine hits ye, After passing of a cloud, When a fit of laughter gets ye, And ye'r spine is feeling proud, Don't forget to up and fling it, At a soul that's feeling blue, For the minute that you sling it It's a boomerang to you.
