THE PRESIDENT My dear Catawbans: Another college year is drawing to a close and the Sayakini now presents you with a record of the events of this year at Catawba College. Sly first wish is to congratulate the editors of this book on the excellency of their work- manship, for more painstaking hours of careful work go into the making of a college annual than most of us realize. Let us therefore hold in grateful affection the editors of the 1942 Sayakini. These are momentous, soul stirring times. The call to duty may come to some of us at any time to serve our country anywhere on this globe. The matters at stake in this war are not the usual economic and commercial in- terests. Such material concerns are of small moment. The issue for which free men are fighting today is the very existence of human freedom. Every- thing which Americans have held sacred since the earliest days is under attack: freedom to think, freedom to speak, freedom to act, freedom to owner- ship, freedom to live one ' s own life. This is why men are fighting all over the world. This is why Catawba boys are now in Burma, on Bataan, in Australia, on the seas, patrolling the air, or in camps all over America. May each of us keep faith with these boys by giving to our task, whatever it may be, the same full measure of devotion. With best wishes to each of you, Sincerely yours. Howard R. Omwake President 12

DR. RAYMOND JENKINS Dean of the College I congratulate the editor of the Sayakini and his staff upon the creation of this beautiful volume. The story of the development of printing is a noble chapter in the history of human freedom. From the printed page the student draws inspiration that comes from communion with the great spirits of the race. " A good book is, " as Milton said, " ' the precious life-blood of a master spirit embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life. 7 " Though man cannot escape his mortality, there is in all his records some- thing imperishable. This book, like the painted rocks of prehistoric man. contains symbols charged with meaning; it carries a body which perishes and a soul which lives. May you and your classmates, through loving con- templation, relive these happy days and save the soul of this book from oblivion. Sincerely yours, Raymond Jenkins THE 1942 SAYAKINI 13
