Between the first and last pages ore prayers, bits of inspiration, hours of planning and afternoons, evenings and even parts of nights of hard work. I ' m sitting down here in the PORTAL room, writing this last page the night before the deadline. I ' m honestly thankful for this editorial adventure as I ponder over the activities of the past eight months. I ' m glad for the fellows on the staff. I ' d like to thank them for their cooperation and efforts . . . Joel Balzer for his willing assistance. Glen Ewert for his business management, Harold Schroeder for taking the responsibility of the financing and ads, and Arlo Heinrichs for the many hours spent with the camera and in the darkroom. To the administration, faculty, staff and students, I express my heartfelt gratitude for their faithful endurance in hearkening to the habitual announcements in chapel. Others helped make this publication a reality. Thanks go to fellow-students for paying for the much appreciated camera. Thanks also to Bus Jackson for the portraits and to the Advertising Production Service for publishing and pre- senting us with the finished 1954 PORTAL. May the memories retained in these pictures help you retrace your course through this school year, well spent at P.B.I.
