W' ,1 v. w r: S R m x E THE CLASS OF 1954 of the GEISINGER MEMORIAL HOSPITAL Presents The 1954 am OWE! DEDICATION The Moving Finger writes; and having writ, Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a line, Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it. -Bubaiyat of Omar Khayyam It is with this quotation in mind that the dedication of the 1954 LAMPLIGHTER is written. The past is gone and forgotten in all but a few exceptional instances and so we look to the Future for what it holds and offers to us, the graduate nurses of tomorrow. Not with fear do we greet the dawn but instead we accept it as a challenge to prove that there are still those remaining who pledge themselves to aiding humanity in even the most trivial manner. So it is, that we dedicate our- selves, and this our memorial, to the Future and what- ever it holds in store for us. FOREWORD T0 common knowledge, a School of Nursing is regarded as an institution in which young women pre- pare themselves, through three years of concentrated study in formal classes, ward Classes, and ward duty, to care for the sick and needy and nurse them back to health. To us, the members of the Class of 1954, Geisinger means much more. It signifies a stepping stone to greater horizons, which can be attained only through consistent hard work and high Spirits. T0 cross this stepping stone, we went through a series of doorways; doorways of various sizes and shapes and leading to rooms pleasant 0r nondescript in decor. Nevertheless, each doorway assumed a significant role in our three years here at Geisinger. By taking you through these doorways, we hope to impart to you, through the mediums of photography and the printed word, the elusive and intangible quali- ties which incorporate to form iithe Spirit of G. M. H." The Door Opens . . . Up the cement walk, flanked by small trees . . . parents in tow . . . arms laden with suitcases . . . heart heavy with a generous portion of hopes and fears . . .
