DEDICATION Dear Mr. Williams: Although at times we thought that we would never last the whole year, and at times our problems seemed to swallow us, now that our year is completed we know whom to thank for our endurance and our progress. Your challenging and stimulating classes have taught us to think for ourselves as we never have before, and have given us a chance to realize the extent of our own possibilities. Through our varied class discussions we have learned when to express and when to restrain our individualistic ideas. As a result we will have an increased sense of confidence when we take the step beyond the classroom. Not only have we grown intellectually, but through your personal example we have,learned how our characters can grow. Your willingness to realis- tically face a problem and your never-give-in spirit in solving it have taught us that all problems are soluable if treated with common sense instead of emotion. Your understanding and corrective guidance have helped carry us through the crises of the year. For all these things we thank you. The best way to display this appreciation would not be by a mere verbal expression, but by applying what you have, taught us as we go on in life. While we may not have measured up to the high standards you have set for us, we have gained an awareness of what our goals should be. You have given us a solid foundation on which we can build our lives. In appreciation of your efforts, The Year Book Staff of '58 f"' f0M !i'Q Ip , ?gCf,Qr QQ il W IIXXXKN 4 x 66 ,MM 0 'Adm ls X ' K 5, OVX UC QV5 Q j fb D ' 'Gfffffifmfl is I "Best wishes to the class of '58" 5 T Mr. and Mrs. G. Fenster JZ 2wJ7ff-S-S400 Throughout the school year in chapel meetings you have heard me utter truths and possibly half truths - - some understood and others still in thin air Waiting for a receptive ear. This paragraph now represents my last oppor- tunity of the year to suggest something of a nat- ure that may influence you as long as this book shall last. This something is a lifetime guarantee of inner balance and conscious satisfaction. It is both a tranquiliser and a stimulant. It is a cure for vanity and falseness. It is a source of power. It is a measure for your individual capacity. What is this force? It is an association with great minds and spirits - through books. Therefore, Waste no time on petty thingsg give meaning to your exist- ence by good reading. It is the path to education.

THE BINGO PARTY It was a placid Friday night at Fenster Ranch School. The dorms were calm and tranquil. The,moon cast ro-- mantic shadows on the walks and the school seemed to be captured by The Hood. The Mood eased its way past Palo Verde toward the girls' dorm, swept into the rec hall and transplanted itself in each room. Soon it was on its merry way again, frolicking toward the boys' dorm. There, with no discretion, it whirled its way to La Casita. However, The Mood paused for renewal of strength and scrutinized the surroundings, It noticed behind it the now blatant voices of Fenster's students. The Mood gleefully began its gay pace once again to- ward its destination, La Casita. When all had assembled themselves at La Casita, they realized The Mood was of the gambling spirit and lay- ing their cards on the table prepared for a prime evening of Bingo. Prizes were won by all and Richard Schaub won the grand prize, which gave him the right to be chief puller in the taffy pull. It was a wondrous evening enjoyed by all, thanks to THE MDOD. D, Leslie i g Q . e,.. - Q3 , , ips 5 wlth n THE HALLOWEEN PARTY Halloween comes but once a year and in our year of 1957 Halloween descended upon us with a great deal of excite- ment. Suddenly we had in our midst many celebrities of all kinds and sorts, who were eager to perform, to every- one's delight. Disguised wonderfully in various array of costumes and dialects, we rode to Ramon Harland's ranch. Our driver was so awed with the wondrous transformation created by clever costuming that we were driven many miles in the wrong direction with exuberant spirits mounting,be- fore we finally reached our destined goal for the gala evening. Thehplace that had been picked for the party, where we were to eat and drink good things, dance our dances, and carry out our masquerades, was a secret to all as was fitting for the mysterious air of a Halloween night. The bus and cars stopped. Our host was waiting to greet us. The doors opened and a glittering host of personalities issued forth. We had a number of juvenile delinquents with a wonderful propensity for chewing gum bovinely and divinely following in the immortal footsteps of Elvis Presley. Madame Butter- fly and Little-Bo-Peep became fast friends regardless of the barrier in language. This example of brotherhood was carried throughout the eve with friendships sprouting he- tween a Nubian fan waver and an Army sergeant who kept pro- testing he was really our headmaster, but to no avail. Like- wise the amenities of the French sailor, who spoke Latin, and Little Red Riding Hood, who carried not preserves to Grandma in her heavily lidded basket but a flash camera, surprised the audience with their flashes of happiness. The others went to extremes and in good keeping with this didn't mingle well. There were bohemians, cowhands,doctors,nurses, and many students mimicking the female populace of the school with their feminine attire. After amusing ourselves with othersdcleverness for some time, amid dancing and other frolic, we had a stage show and after the finale con- sisting of the parading of the characters before the specta- tors, chose the best portrayals. The winners were Buddy Schwartz and Chesley Harding. The rest of the party was spent in mass confusion. We danced polkas, we danced waltzes, we danced circle dances, in fact we danced ourselves into sheer exhaustion with the most popular dance of all, rock 'n roll. But really, the main s attraction was the green creature sitting complacently in his 0389, watching everything and everyone with mild interest and a hint of absolute disconcern. Soon the witching hour fell over the land. lWe climbed aboard the various cars and were transported back to our dorms with the driver much less awed at our outfits. He drove us to school straight as an arrow. We stepped out of the vehicles, smiling wearily, holding on to the less sturdy pieces of our costumes that had been disarrayed at in- tervals during thegaietybecause of the over-exertion of frivolous youth in his dancing endeavors. Completely sat- isfied with ourselves, we settled into sleep, with visions of the fun dancing in our heads, knowing wel1'that no Halloween could every surpass the one-we had shared toge- ther in October 1957 at Fenster Ranch School n FIRST PLAY OF TH YEAR Murder at Mrs, Loring's was a dramatic mystery which was given for us by the Drama Department in the beginning of the year. It was the tense story of a murder and the search to find those guilty of the crime. The lighting of this pro- duction was the most important factor and it was carried out so well thatgthe whole produc- tion took in the desired air that engulfed the ' situation of the plot. ' ' Noela Kitchenras the old widow was exceptionally I good. The acting job she did on this role created such an emphatic response from the spectators' that to see her afterwards as the young Noela Kitchen wasn't believable. The rest of the char- acters were well presented by Lorraine Croft, Rowena Wallace, Christine Swenson and Sharon Allen. TOWN TRIPS The looked-forward to feature of Saturday afternoon is the relentless,,never-ceasing town trip. This is a voyage into the far from unknown in order to vary the routine of student life. It begins after lunch as a multitude of unrecogniz- ably clean faces in orderly fashion climb aboard the Fenster Ranch School bus jubilantly grasping the rem- nants of allowance that they are now going to nblown for such essentials as sarcastic cards,Elvis Presley autographed pictures, stuffed animals of various shapes, sizes and colbrs, handmade costume jewelry earrings, perfumed ink, Bunsen burners, and ever so many other articles necessary in the life of a stu- dent. Once having spent the major part of their parents' earnings, the female portion of the school seek out the wandering male portion of the school in hopes that they haven't been quite as nbargain-wisen and still have enough of the scarce Umoolahn to take them to a famous restaurant, better known as Ralis Grill, for dinner and then to a rendezvous at a local movie theater. After observing and evaluating this admirable cinema the obstreperous students return again to school with renewed strength to begin the grueling week until the next Saturday at the same time and place. D. Leslie THE ENGAGEMENT PARTY One evening, shortly following the Christmas vacation, a party was given at La Casita for the newly engaged Miss Rowena Wallace. La Casita was decorated, hors d'oeurves were pre- pared and finally after much anticipation the night arrived. Miss Wallace danced with every- one and everyone danced with Miss Wallace to the lulling refrains of UThere's No Boom Boom inEuccnFlatsU. Soon we had a planned assort- ment of novelty songs that were sung by all which were directed to us by an admirer of Tom Lehr. After the robust voices of the crowd boomed unbearably, poems were composed by the students about Rowena and her fiance, and read aloud by Mr. Williams. 'Many of the student body dropped in to offer congratulations and Mr. and Mrs. Fenster stayed for some time mar- veling at the aptitude for dancing displayed by Marilyn Cohen and Don and Noela Kitchen. Latin music was the dominating selection of records for the evening. This party was appreciated and enjoyed by all, but, to a much greater degree, by Rowena, who collected her poems and reread them continually for the following weeks. Three of them we've been requested to publish which you'll find on the next page. C, Harding 'iooc Xxo-if S9 701040 iam: egos we Xwvo 1,5 X meta mm 9 P, X946 goo.

This play, which was centered on a convict, was the story of the efforts of many people to discover his true identity before he was execu- ted. The main characters were portrayed very convincingly by the cast. Bruce O'Neil1, 'who portrayed the convict, was es- pecially good in his performance. His reciting of lines from Shakespeare as the lights faded on the doomed man was extremely moving, and he pleased the audience with his interpretation of this role, which he gave in this, the second dramatic performs ance of the school year of 1957--58.

The rodeo and preliminary parade come but once a year and are the major concerns of all Tucsonians during their unequaled reign of four days. Many floats are entered in the parade and our school float followed the de- signs of a typical hayride complete with cheerfully colored costumes and Western sing- ing. Marilyn CGrossj Grossman was the able chairman of the float committee with Diane Leslie, art chairman,vPeggy and David Schroder were the props committee, Don Kitchen, con- struction committee chairman,and Noela Kitchen, 'costume director. Chesley Harding served as hostess in a little reception given for those that rode in the float. After the morning of the parade the next three days of the rodeo are filled with the skills of the Western cow- boy and wrangler in everything from bronco busting to roping. It is a colorful event and just as monumental in a person's experienced activities as the first bullfight or sea excur- sion. One sees the real cowboy displayed to his best advantage, showing all the zest and recklessness that has made him immortal in our American history. Four days go by quickly with the excitement and fervor aroused by the many competitive events going on all the while at the rodeo. When it's over each scrapbook is filled with reminders and we are one up on the friends nback homeu. C, Harding - ALL-DAY PICNIC A picnic is always fun, but in Arizona with the scenic beauty so near at hand and a clear, cool day, there is nothing quite so enjoyable. This, combined with enthusiastic students and lunches, made our picnic a success, in spite of a flat tire. Among students,and lunches we also had baseball equipment, hik- ing equipment, which consists ofha strong pair of legs, movies camera and many brownies. We all traveled in cars to Old Tucson first, which is the locale for many motion pictures and where many hours could be spent before one has seen all that he wishes to see of the old Western town so well kept for sight-. seers. we stayed here for a short while only because we were anxious to get on to our picnic ground. After'we arrived, we ate and played baseball and then began our hike. Each desired to conquer ardifferentlmountaing so our group split into three parts and we bagan to climb. Upon reaching the top of our re- spective peaks, which were in reality large hills, we named them after one of the more fearless and adventurous members of the expedition, Having basked in the sun,,staring at plains ' stretched out below us, we took many pictures and then descended to mingle once again with the less agile students, who were feeling much stronger. They were indeed, for we discovered to our horror that all the sandwiches, all the soft drinks, all the refreshing fruit, had been eaten. Because of this we had mon- strous appetites that evening We settled quietly into the c s, - s ' al' we were quiet for a little while, but soon, as always, our drivers had a full repetoire of the Top Twenty being sung at full blast much to their horror and our great delight. After demanding to be dropped off at an ice-cream parlor, we finally reached the grounds of the school. We carried our empty lunch baskets, tired baseball equipment, tired selves, and empty cameras back to their respective places. The picnic had been a delightful experience in our annals, and later in the year the pictures were shown to us in an assembly, which brought back the memories anew of the fun shared by all. C. Harding - baseball It was February baseball season. The place was the Fen- ster Ranch School Baseball Diamond. The purpose was the training for our first game with S. A. S. Fenster was up first. The first at bat was Tom DeLong, who hit a short pop-up and was out. Next up was Tim Schlitzer, who was thrown out at first. Then Bruce 0'Neill, our captain, went out. As it came to the eigfhth inning, S. A. S. was miserably in the lead by 20 to 25 and for the first time it looked as though we might be able to catch on fire with the bases loaded and no outs. Then Fenster's star pitcher hit a high infield fly ball, and the S. A. S. second base man caught the ball for the first out, tagged second base for the second out, and fired the ball to third base for the third out. It was a triple play which knocked us out of the running. The final score was S..S. S. 22 - Fen- ster 2. The game with its lopsided score was enlivened by our cheerleaders: Noela Kitchen, lhrilyn Cohen, Anna Lee Mheller,.Becky Epps, Sue Buker, Donna Berman, Elena Simp- SOD.

Bruce O'Neill .third baseman, had two home runs, both were hit well over 300-feet and in deep center field. Ibn Zachau also hit a tremendous drive to left center- field and was thrown out on a brilliant throwlby the left fielder of the U. of A. team. Practically everybody on the Fenster team got at least one hit while the U. of A. boys were finding the pitching a little difficult. The two best fielding plays of the day were turned in by Tom Parker and John DeLong. Tom Parker, cen- ter fielder, made a spectacular running catch on a short fly ball just behind the infield, and follow- ing right afterwards, John DeLong made a diving cir- cus catch on a short line drive that should have been a basehit. Don Kitchen and Richard Schaub shared the pitching honors, with'Don Kitchen getting credit for the win Chris Williams played an outstanding game at first, as did Tom DeLong and Henry Steinman at second. Milt B rr played shortstop, making one good field- ing play and also committing the only error for the Fenster team. Bruce O'Neill played a sound third base, and rounding out the infield we had Don Mb- Knight behind the plate. In the outfield-we had John DeLong in left, Tom Parker in center, and Don Zachau in right. 'NQQEVTZQ - ings 15355 "fir, :QT nwinter Wonderlandn A peaceful school day and then black foreboding clouds began to gather. Nothing happened, though, until after luncho People were dolefully attending period-after-lunch classes and suddenly there was noise on the roof - first, light tapping, then finally, loud banging. All eyes turned toward the windows. It looked like a mir- 886- In the speech class there was a mad dash out of the door to see if it was a mirage. Sure enough, there were huge hailstones falling. They were bouncing off the ground so that it looked as if they were springing upfiom the earth. They dashed themselves against the rooftops and found their way into open windows. Hail in Tucson! The whole school was in chaos. Snowballs were flying fast, and some students were even trying to build a snowman, while the harrassed teachers were trying to round up their snow-wild students. Less boistrous scholars were sitting in corners gloating over the fact that it was snowing in the land where Uthe sun spends the winter.n Within an hour there was no trace of the freakish pre- cipitation except for a few puddles. That night more than one person went to sleep trying to figure out whether he had imagined it after all. M. Grossman is S fb nl ' xx v ' S A '1 . vw W M22 at , 6.. . 2 I , w i . " A - 5 . IQ .

Weeks of work went into this laudable performance on the part of Chesley Harding, Christine Swenson,Diane Leslie, Anne Williams, Noela Kitchen. As the final week approached a disaster struck the heart of Fenster Ranch School. It was the ever-feared-flu. 'However 3 none of the members of the cast had as yet been stricken. Six days, five days,four days, three days, two days-'word came that Chesley, the star performer of the play had been taken ill. All was lost and the members of the cast felt dejected and de- pressed. Then to the rescue came the effervescent Miss Smith. Without knowing any of the lines, she galhantly sailed through the P9I'f01'l1lB-T109 to the amazement and astonish- ment of the members of the cast. And to this day none of the audience knows that the girl who played the sassy and tomboy- ish Joe was in reality Miss Smith, the dramatics QO8Ch1o D.

However, after a little ,snoopervising by a 'master s1euth" fMrs. Bradford? the students learned of ' the party and chipped in to buy dessert, which con- sisted fof one monstrous cake. After the dinner, at which everyone ate too much, and again with many thanks to Mrs. Williams for her generous actions all through the year, the students "bopped" their way through a study-hall-less evening ,So mer "' Mrs. Williams Becky Epps and Mrs. Williams Rowena Wallace ane Christine Swenson M W gCH00l -fif: at E I . ,W fl 1 is . ily, V 9 X tr 5 , .yy .Qi ' ,, 'U 4 Lx' A Latin Conquest The Latin class decided to do something new and different one day. A contest between the members of the class was the outcome of much thought on the matter. We dbcided to see how many derivatives we could use from Latin words in writing a short story. The results showed us that the study of Latin had given usla wonderful understanding of the English language. The same words were used by each person and'the variety of stories and situations that sprang from this vocabulary was very impressive. They were so-impress- ive that two of them are printed for your enjoyment. Each of the words derived from Latin is underlined for your benefit. The Fugitive The agmea fugitive was in the midst of the fengid alanag,on the riparian side of town. The Qndible'excitement and gang sequenj,reaponaive movements of the crowd were being caased by the fiance regime which the Soviets were introancing. The fugitive hated vehemently each aalute he was forced to make. And, although he tried to defend himself, he was constantly under interrogation for an ansolved crime. At this very ng: ggngahe was watching another fugitive's initiatian into con- stant suapician, for he, too, was being deluged with inimi- aal,questions. These questions were painful and the man couldn't respond to any of them so great was his tennog at their contant. The leaders canducting the interrogation were glorying in their capaive's atultified penaonage when sud- denly a not-too cigcumsnect character leaped through the nggf tal,and transported away the fugitive. That night the fugi- tives hid in a deserted natatorium on the East side of town. They had a total of two dollars between them and some arms. Two months later they'd escaped to maritime Italy and now can be seen nanaing,nets by the sea, libanated from the constant salute to a tyrannical power.

By now completely gggltified he becomes ferocious and igimicgl, making a great QlgQQ2,0V6T our injustice. When he becomes ygQgggnj,we accuse him of Qerfidy and we tell him he does not pass the test. His initiation is over and he vanishes forever. Incidentally our latest oegsus shows a Qopulatiog of five people. Tarilyn Grossman is Viva El Torro The air is stillg the sun beats down on the spectators as they sit with calm expectancy. Suddenly the stillness is broken by music - loud, rhythmic, powerful music., The doors at the end of the arena are flung open and a procession marches out. The Toraros, the Picadores.maroh into the arena with the Matador in their midst. The colors are bright and there is a dignity about this man who gambles with life. The men take their places, the music, now high, announces the coming of the bull., The music stops and out rushes a monstrous creature. The people cheer and stare hard at the other'gambler. Thesbull runs around the arena in loping circles. He stops to investigate things behind the shields. He is playful in the beginning but finally stands still and looks around. The Torraro steps into the arena and teases the bull as the animal rushes towards him. Then, very sud- denly and nimbly, the Torraro sticks the Banderillos into his black shining back. The bonderillos, bright and long, are covered with decorations and infuriate the bull'as-he. feels the pains of their sharp harpoon ends., The Toraro leaves the ring and the Matador-enters. The cape of the Matador is red and circular in shape. He swings his cape in circles, swiveling on his toes, asvthe bull charges again and again, missing the bejeweled man by inches. 'After fail- ing to overcome the Matador after many charges, the bull is wearied but still furious. The Picadores come out and gore him in the ribs.' The bullfs fright isn't so great as it would have been in the beginningg he is near death and seems to sense it as he falls to the ground. He tries to lift himself, but to no avail. The Matador comes in again and. this time he is carryingxa sword which he plunges into the neck of the bull. The crowds are hardly able to contain themselves as they cheer and scream at the outcome of this' ancient sport. The music is now triumphant as the Matador is awarded a tail and two hoofs. The air is charged.with hats and flowers. The Matador is hoisted to the shoulders of his Torraros and is carried around and around while the music and people scream with exultation. A little man lead- .ing a small donkey is hardly noticed as he drags the once fiery and youthful Torro out of the arena. Marilyn Grossman .M ,wi WW? wqfsu-1 911 we-9 Lower School Our year is filled not only with the activities of the upper school but with those of the lower school. Dick Barchfiold and Billy Miller, desirous of representing their classmates, submitted some of their compositions as proof of their endeavors in gaining knowledge of the more important issues in life. How Easter Started Ever since the world started man knew that there was a God. In about 1432 there was a king that ruled Israel. One bright morning a woman and a man were working in a field. All of a sudden God told a woman named lhry, NThou shall have a baby named Jesus.n Jesus grew up and had many, many good friends. This is how Easter started: A king put Jesus on a cross and the next day they put him in a cave. But when the king came, the rock he.had put over the cave was off and Jesus was not dead. He sat on the right hand of God. Dick Barchfield - Grade 3 Bill's Science Science is about nature. Nature is about trees and ani- mals. Trees have roots and the roots bring up water and food. Animals get their water and food from other animals The animals get their water from streams. Nature is not only about trees and animals but nature is about bushes. You can make medicine out of herbs. Billy Miller - Grade 3 THE MIGRANT CAM S For many miles around Tucson are migrant camps. These camps are not frequented by many people, for the conditions that are predominating among these migrant workers are those of poverty endured by pathetical- ly unfortunate men and women. During the fall, once a week, a bus load of boys and girls could be seen by the unscrubbed chil- dren and workewearied adults of this clan. Descending from the bus, armed with refresh- ing good humors-and a sincere desire to help those less fortunate were the students of The Fenster Ranch School., They played games with the youngsters and the older teen agers, and wont the respect of the adults. After everyone was completely exhausted by the games and activities they had inspired in the others, refreshments were served and good things were shared by all. fThen the bus would leave with these people thronged about saying goodbye and anticipating the time when this great green vehicle would a- gain transport a little happiness into their bleak existences once again. THE VOLLEY BALL GAMES The girls excelled in volley ball during its season this year and engaged in com- petitive games with other schools. Competing with other teams is always a good source of spirit and brings forth more energetic playing than practice with one's own classmates. The schools with which we were in competition were Saint Joseph's Academy and the Valley School for Girls. c . Harding ! 'im N2 3,81 " 1 5 if -.T.... A 3 I al igcggja., L f qt' ,gg if gba V? X K -.

I remember walking through a native village and meeting a "Witch Doctor". Only 226 Miles Across The Sean was an airport. I was taking a plane to Geneva, Switzerland, that day., Upon arrival at the airport, I saw the stewardesses and noticed the resemblance of one of them to my dormmate back at the Fenster Ranch School. I-approached her, and it was Rowena Wallace. She was chief super- viser at the airlinesl During the flight we were able to recall instances back in 1958. Thoughts ran through my mind con- cerning the kind of house she had bought in Virginia Beach. She told me she married her High School boyfriend, Benny Hewitt, and it was then that she decided to take her present job. Time went by quickly, and we landed in Geneva, Switzerland. we said good-by, each going her way. The next morning I looked out the window and saw a Swiss Chalet on snow-capped mountain. I decided to be a WHappy Wanderer? and visit the Chalet. Outside the building I saw Girl Scouts together, and I realized it was the Girl Scout Chalet. I remembered my classmate Christine Swenson, who had been interested in Girl Scouts, and I thought I would send her a card from here. I knocked on the door. A small voice answered, NI Hear You Knockin', But You Can't Come Inn. The door opened, and a small eight year old girl was laughing. She thought it was a funny situa- tion. I asked to see the Scout Executive. -The little girl took me to the Scout Executive. I NAS Time Goes Byn Con't. was speechless at the sight of her. It was my classmate Christine Swenson. we both were shocked by the sight of each other. Christine told me how. much she enjoyed her job and the people she worked with. After spending five hours with her I felt guilty, because I,was never a Girl Scout. With that thought in mind I bought cookies and cakesvfrom them, and I went back to my hotel. The next stop was Portugal. I remembered seeing those new Portuguese sports cars in France. It was just what I wanted. I went to the Portu- guese Mbtors Inc. Building, and decided to buy a red and green plaid car, the convertible type, the one which folds up and fits into one's pocket. Nobody was able to speak English except the Presi- dent of the firm. Heading toward his office, I saw a distinguished-looking man surrounded by his pri- vate secretaries. -It was none other than my old Chemistry buddy, Mr. Milton Burr. After calming down from the excitement of seeing each other, we had some laughs about the violent explosions we made in-the lab. He said business was good and.he gave me four cars as a gift, Each car was a diff6' rent plaid. I folded them up and put them into my pocket, just like HA Falling Starn. My mission was complete. I would now hand my boss the report about the Medical Technologists through- out the world. I was glad about the raise I was getting for the cure of antihypersyllabicsesquiped- alianism. I was happy about the cure for Lukemia, which I had discovered quite by accident. I de- cided to have the medicine bottled and put on the market after I arrived home. I was proud of my name, Arlyne Moskowitz, Medical Technologist. NAS Time Goes Byn Con't. I looked out of the plane window. I saw Niagra Falls. I could feel the water on my face. I heard a loud voice say, nyou'11 be late for classesn. Then she poured more water on my face. Here I was 'back again, being rudely awakened by my dormmother, and on my way to classes. GRADUATION The graduation exercises are over. I've been congratulated, patted on the back by my father, kissed by my mother, and thrown many admiring glances by the younger classmen, who are long- ing f6r'?he day when they will be the ones in the black robes. I've thrown away the notes from my speech and taken off the cap that I'd taken so much trouble to adjust just a few hours before. Now I feel the urge to be away from the people, to wander over the campus I've walked on during the past and see it once more and recall memories which soon will be lost with my youth. I stand on the field looking at the dormitories, thinking of many things. My thinking isn't centered around the school now. It is focused on the present and what is to come: my college life, my marriage, and my children. Next fall I will be walking through new portals that open a world to me that is different from anything I've seen or experienced. I am frightened a little and even surprised that .I can admit it to myself. I am exuberant with delight, though, because opportunity is mine. If only my past has been worthy of it. This is what frightens me. I feel a surge of power, for at last I am a part of the adult world. My opinion will now be accepted as an adult expression, not the fantasies of a child. I have looked forward to this day for at long last-I am a free, independent human being. Now I am ready to go back to the scene of this change.. The noise and frolic have meaning to me now. I must go back to my parents and wish my friends good-luck. I must go back and take my place in the world. D.
