STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE AT BRIDGEWATER January 6, l°51i Dear Seniors: Though William Wordsworth probably never heard of college year books as we know them today, I think he was stating his sense of loss of the happy hours and delight-filled days that are so much a part of youth and yet so impossible of reliving or recapture, when he wrote: " There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, The earth, and every common sight To me did seem Apparelled in celestial light, The glory and the freshness of a dream. " For you and your undergraduate colleagues, Alpha accomplishes what in Wordsworth ' s day only a poet ' s inspired imagination could do. It is a nice amalgam of sensitive pictures: plans and their outcomes, athletic activities and the highlights, social activities and their magic memories, pictures which, however dimmed, can be lightened up again, re-etched sharply by a hurried glance at your year book. Unfortunately for all of us, only time and retrospect can create the perspective necessary to see our college years in all their simple splendor: " Yesteryear ' s good round of pleasure Every hour ' s gay crown of fun. " We admire with a deeper, a more lasting affection the good friends of our undergraduate days, the happy experiences which rise out of wholesome friendships, the men and women who, in class and out, tried so diligently to interest us in the good life, and, finally, Alma Mater, whose kindly motherliness has placed these geramy gifts at our disposal. May God speed all of you 1 You have Bridgewater ' s philosophy as your guide! God ' s providence as your strength. Teach effectively and fearlessly. With St. Paul " Fight the good fight keep the course. " Alma Mater asks no more; no loyal child of Bridgewater should offer less. Cordially, President
