Store . . . Then there were the
Math clubs and Hobby Clubs
with their displays . . . And
his family at home in Bronx-

I soon found myself to be undeniably and absolutely alone. The
entire campus was for some reason or another deserted-at least
I had successfully navigated the puddles on the front drive and
made my way ro the Administration Building, only to discover that
nor even a stray secretary was on the job. The offices had been locked
and dark, the building empty and unfriendly.
Then I had come to Faculty Row with the hope still in my
heart that I might see a familiar face, clasp a familiar hand. But the
houses here had turned out to be equally dark, empty, and unfriendly.

I shook my head. Then leaning against a tree, I tried for a

To the Members of the Class of 1950
As you pass the rostrum on graduation day to receive your
diplomas, we of the faculty stand aside to mingle a hearty Godspeed
with our farewells to you.
If you cou1d.return to a Concordia commencement ten or
twenty years hence, without the high emotions of the grad-mation hour
and with some opportunity to test in more earnest living the truths
learned upon this campus, perhaps you then would be in a better position
to define more fully the meaning of your Concordia diploma. All the
comforts and little hurts, all the coziness and little pains of these
days will long ago have merged for you into one cherished memory of
Then, perhaps, you will say that the meaning of your Con-
cordia days may be compacted into two words: foundation and direction.
The foundation for your life came from a book which is Tmth, the
direction for your life, from a Man who is the King of Kings. This
Book of Truth, whose principles pervade all teaching, has permanently
defined your relations upward, towards your Creator, and laterally,
towards your fellow men. To that Han, who is your God, you have been
led to give the deepest allegiance of your hearts and to Him you are
giving the whole service of your lives.
So fixed and so directed, you need not cover before all the
dread possibilities of danger and destruction, about which we hear
50 much 30 incessantly in 1950. A life so orientated will have the
stuff for useful, worthwhile serving, even in a turbulent world,

and that it may grow in richness with the passing or time is the
meaning Of Our handclasp on your graduation day.
All good wi h t
