T0 DR. MACK SWEARINGEN There are so many little things to remem- ber, fleeting and priceless-evenings in the living room warmed by the comfortable familiarity of being at home-traces of a southern past blended into voices and hearts -"Mac," an actor we've enjoyed, a bridge player we've succumbed to, a father we've adopted-the informal conversations shot with rich humor and penetrating observa- tions of people, ol times, and bound by under- standing and awareness-the feeling that history is living and pertinent, that it is a part of us-our response to those emphatic statements conveying a wealth ol knowledge patron saint to '53 and experience-and always the vision of a maroon tie, reminder ofa special day and a special song when we were freshmen and were filled with dreams.

'lhrouglr guided discussion and reading groups, through intelligently informed lec- turers, through intercollegiate conventions, participation in the Herald Tribune Forum, and direct observation of the United Nations in session, the international Relations Club has tried to give us some nteasure of insight into the social, political, and economic world in which we are directly involved, has tried to show us the value of our moments in the huge Irtcasure of time. DEB TE CL B ln our spontaneous group rlis- cussions rensoning often heeomes tlistorterl and loses perspective. ln an attempt to augment those classroom interventions, to elar- ily those Cowle lliu arguments, and restore perspective, Debate Council determines a sound basis for evaluation and then works formally and logically from and upon that bnsis. College prohlems or worlfl struggles, when hrought into the light of reason elearly formulaterl and expressetl, assume new proportions, suddenly seem more solvable. i1""'E HUM? Q! m-' gf w 1 , HH.. Hu X A V, ORCHESIS Visualized emotion, meaningful gestures, ae- eentuated movements, tnmult or repose-gall are molded into the sensuous, mobile beauty which is the aesthetic appeal of the dance. Orehesis, striv- ing to give to the rollege and the community a deeper appreciation and understanding of the danee form, has dedicated its efforts to the study and performance of creative danee. Members of Orehesis roneentrated upon improvisation, indi- vidually and in groups, and the integration of original themes into total dance patterns. Public demonstrationsillustrate the study of movement, the principle of interpretive dance. Tuough these demonstrations are designed to clarify the theory of movement, never is that purpose allowed to obscure dramatic motivation. Le Ccrele Francais allows au opportunity lor the informal discussion that makes a language live. Transplalrted from the class- room to the salon-like lounge or to the Cowle Bin annex, speaking in a Parisian tongue be- comes social conversation over a hand of French Bridge or inthe critical appreciation of SillllllS2l6Il,S Samson and Delilah. Cafe and gateau on occasion add to an authentic old- world atmosphere. When planned in a French manner, a traditional spring picnic takes on an unusual flavor.

Weeks of la- tigning rehearsals, frenzied mem- orizing of lines, the sinking feeling ol stage fright rlo not flaunt ns in ont' attempts to he another per- son in another worltl. There is even a thrill in the feel of grease paint, the painting of sets, the mail flashing alter props. Stnrly- ing sanrlwiehed hetween rehear- sals and the heaclaehes of meeting hnanees and hnrling male leads seem minute when the enrtain hnally opens on a hrst night and a lnrslierl, respectful anflienee waits expeelantly lor the play to begin. Endless rehearsals, tbc singing of passages again and again, the constant striving for artistic interpretation and perlection, con- centration and fatigue-all are surrounded and hidden by the exultation that is experi- enced in producing an unforgettable concert not only forthe Glee Club members, but for their audiences as well.

The beauty of the music and the satisfaction in singing have made the Glce Club, endowed with the musical experience and knowledge of Gwynn Bement, an outstanding part of our college education.

We realized that our four years were neither the here-all nor end-all, when eonsidered in the large order of thingsg but merely one of the interminable bends in the life- river . . . that the fabric of life so vividly real to ue now will later be "stranger than a dream," nothing more than a bitter regret of the transieriey of moments, people we onee knew, factual knowledge we have sinee forgotten . . . that the yearbook, crammed full of graphic accounts, would be the only tangible proof to us that it happened, that it was ours, that it wasn't a dream of time . . . for we cannot, even if we would, retain the unutter- able beauty of now ami here . . .

M ealenders, shirts, and socks lloat around with an abandon that has never been matched. And it is very apparent that more goes on in those Monday night meetings than knitting. Intercollegiate sports days at Cornell, Allred, and Wells, seasonal tournaments, class competitionsaall require planning and cooperation. ln addition to this there is the memory ol a marshmallow roast hy the puddle aml the impatient waiting lor the AA banquet with its awards to Polly Perfect and the White lllazer Girl--an exciting climax to a year enjoy- ably spent. RT CLUB 'l'hat beam in the art lah with its list of nantes mount- ing up and up, the paint spatteretl sinh, the long-legged easels may last a little longer in the memory ol some ol us than ol' others. Especially to the ntemhers ol Art Club tlo these "incitlentals" have a special signilicance, tor they are the symbols ol creative ability, ol' itleas and visions that, tliflusetl throughout the year, culminate in a tangible lorm in the annual spring exhibit. Little realizing the long hours, the aspirations, the hopes that are held within each work, we criticize and enjoy them and notice after a while that the themes are universal ones-eeven as universal as the dreams that promoted them.

No long- er are we stumped by whieh dials to turn or buttons to push but rather by what we have to say on the air. Is it worthwhile? Does it reach the audience? Will, they enjoy it? This year as a result we have broadcast a series of educational programs designed for the com- munity with au eye for our own develop- ment and the listeners' understanding. STUDENT FELLOW HIP Candles flickering and casting shadows and light on the water-coffee and cigarettes in the browsing room-the Christmas party and the tree-the bazaar-trips to the Neigh- borhood House-religious emphasis days- These have been more than odds and ends of memories, for throughout the year Stu- dent Fellowship has been building a new feeling for the importance of religion on campus. The discussions on "Faith for Every day Living" have brought out problems and ideas that once scented very individual, but when compared with others, have had a striking similarity. The inliuence and im- portance of such an organization is more far- reaching in its elfects than we can fully realize. The spirit of co-operation, and the establishment of a civic concern are the means by which our lives and the lives of others are enriched and deepened. v '-v K Z" gnu.

Through the all-pervading influence of the honor system, we are able to cultivate a greater understanding oi and appreciation for the duties and privileges of citizenship. Violations of the honor code, personally re- ported to Senate members, are considered with respect to the personality involved. Their emphasis is placed upon assistance rather than penalty. No one is socially ostracized because of a mistake, nor is she mentally catalogued as an offender. Because of the privilege we possess of reporting our own mistakes and knowing that they will be individually considered, we are establishing a permanent body of ethics indispensable to our future living and learning.

It means the proper economy of money, mate- rials, and time, but always bearing in mind the kind ol a yearbook you wish to have produced and of which you will he proud. BJ H813 'learned to appreciate that principle a long time ago. It is for this reason that we have consistently advocated the coordination ol' all factors of yearbook production. We are indeed glad to have been selected to produce this year's hook. iii BAKER, JUNES, HAUSA UER 81 SAVAGE, INC Producers of Fine College .flmurals Bullalo, New York
