Q ,OJ in -fi' Dndiratiun Iust at the beginning of the academic year 1952-53 a great sorrow befell Carleton College in the death of Mrs. lean Isabel MacOdrum, beloved wife of our president. To her memory we reverently dedicate this Yearbook. Her portrait, which forms the frontispiece, but inadequately conveys the sweetness and charm of her personality. In the difficult years of the growing college she has been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to her husband, and, by her gracious participation in the college functions and activities endeared herself to the faculty and student body to an unusual degree. Mrs. MacOdrum was born and educated in St. Iohn's Newfoundland, served in the Newfoundland government as legal secretary to the premier, Sir Richard Squires, prior to her enlistment in the Canadian Women's Army Corps. Those who were associated with her in her army service will never forget her "fine strong duty-sense" or her kindness to those in her charge for she rose to the responsible rank of sergeant, before her marriage to Dr. MacOdrum in Ianuary 1945. Their many friends in Ottawa and in Manotick, especially, knew her as a wonderful home-maker and a devoted mother to her little daughter, Morna, who with Dr. MacOdrum shares our profound sympathy in their irreparable loss. St. Andrews church, of which she was a faithful member was filled with mourners when her pastor, Dr. Ian Burnett paid eloquent tribute to Mrs. MacOdrum's lovely and courageous character and the happiness she had radiated throughout her short life. "And so, dear one, for you no darksome grave Your spirit lives, so strong, so gay, so brave." 0 -5, or ti Y. u11Tyo

Tlw PrvsiflQnl3's Message The year at Carleton College is ending on a note of sorrow. Doug Banton, one of our most popular graduates in the Class of '52 has been reported "killed in action" while leading his men in a desperately fought relief patrol action in Korea. Yet the sorrow is suffused with glory. This 25 year old graduate of our College and Lieutenant in the Royal Canadians has heroically met and triumphantly answered the challenge of his times. For the rest of us, old and young, who are left-and especially for the graduating class of '53 - the challenge remains. Not always by the manner of our death, but more usually by the manner of our life. are we called upon to show the faith that is in us. In the routine and drudgery of the class- room and of the study this truth very often becomes obscured. In the pleasures, too, whether grave or gay, of protected college life, the serious purpose of our days is occasionally jeopardized. Doug Banton is not alone as an exemplar. Carleton College is young, but it has already its list of heroes, men and women, themselves all young, too young, who have matched their characters with life's demand. This is the proudest and happiest estimate I have ever been able to make of the quality of Carleton College life. I present this estimate with confidence and with high expectations to the members of the graduating class of May 1953. J 'ff -5-
