Jime aoe$, uou 5au: 4k 7 Tiad, J ' une dtaud; we ao. no y These words, which inspired Lorado Taft to create his fam- ous sculpture, " Fountain of Time " , have a special significance for us. Since they are so applicable to college life, we have adopted them as the theme of this book. We are but two of many groups to go forth from this institution, yet the spirit and traditions of F.T.C. will remain, like Time, completely unchanged. Time is eternal. We are but transitory figures moving across its mighty face as sunshine and shadow move across a sundial. We all have our brief span of sunshine and for us who are soon to leave, our college days were the sunniest. If shadows lie be- fore us, they are merely those of uncertainty. That space of Time which has been allotted to our genera- tion is now filled with strife and turmoil, and we, as products of our age, must act in accordance with the exigencies of war. Thus, the classes of 1943 and 1944, in keeping with the frugality neces- sitated by wartime, have collaborated in combining two year- books in one. Ours is a Time which demands much of its youth, especially of its young men. So, in order that they might graduate before joining the armed services, the men of our classes have followed an accelerated course of study which allows them to receive their degrees several months earlier than usual, while the girls graduate according to peacetime schedule. In developing the theme, the sundial — and what can better symbolize our places in the changelessness of Time? — depicts each graduating division of the classes of 1943 and 1944, the men graduating in January and August and the women in June of their respective years. Although Time has seen fit to sever our ranks, we of " 43 " and " 44 " shall go forth with the same spirit of love and loyalty which our Alma Mater has inspired in all her graduates and which shall continue to be the heritage of those who are to follow.
