Page eight UREWURD Elmira's so different from other col- leges. I don't know just what it is, but-3' Visitors on campus are always saying itg that's how we all feel. This intangible some- thing makes an endless task of catching the Elmira spirit between two impersonal leath- G6 er covers. We've tried to express our feel- ings on the subject countless times through- out our school years-in song. What bet- ter theme, then, than a musical one, ,to catch this mood and to impart it as best we can to whom it may concern. Our class song captures a great deal of the person- ality of the uhailing class of '50", so we use it to introduce the sections of our year- book. The countless other Elmira songspof the past and present best threw-'lQhti on the mysterious over-all Elmira spiritg thus, verses from them are used as picture cap- tions and as titles. Someone once said that "music is the universal language of man- kind". For us, he spoke the truth.

- - 2l'e oed we Jet f 2 CLC? -hi now we Afafe our carie D A ... E were first introduced to Dr. Pott's warmhearted geniality when he wel- comed us to Elmira as freshmen. Since then the white house with the tall pillars and the open door has been a regular haunt. Digni- Hed and reserved in his book-lined office, Sunday afternoons find him sitting cross- legged on the library floor all wrapped up in a 'Ghot" bridge game with three students. When we're all alumnae, Sunday afternoons will never roll around without evincing memories of open houses at the Potts' . . . Lathe Mrs." behind the tea service . . . uthe Doctor" presiding at the toaster . . . food aplenty . . . and a roaring fire in the fireplace. Dean Speight, our jovial saint, has helped us to become masters of our academic fates. A hospitable smile, a joke, and a feeling of personal interest begin any conference. Through him the freshmen have found their academic sea legs and upper classnien have had their scholastic knots ironed out. And all of us know that each petition to change an exam schedule or to take an additional course will meet every consideration. Dean Lyon has been our "aide confidantew for three years. She has listened with patient sympathy to our tales of woe, both academic and social, and her kindness and interest has reached out to touch everyone. Executive Council has benefited by her helpful advice at the meetings which are always held at the udeaneryn, Whose open door has been known by every Elmiran. Room inspection always includes a chuckle over some Neol- legiaten endeavor., and our mistakes are cor- rected by her stories of Susie which have provoked laughter in many a chapel.
