yearbook should live up to its name. It should
be in some measure a book about the year of
" cc if which it is a record in a particular institution.
The effort that produced this Gale has been directed
toward the recording of those things during the junior year
of the Class of '42 which made that year an individual
experience in the lives of the Knox Family. There are
many things which go into every year - - - people, teams
and clubs, certain activities - - - that are always part of
the nine months we spend here in school. But these
elements are not the same every year. There are new Phi
Betes and football heroes, new cups on fraternity mantels.
new rhetorical, Thespian, and social enterprises. In
addition to these are the many unique events that make
this year really different from other years. A selection of
visiting celebrities becomes a distinct part of our lives
during the course of the year. Progressive institutions
such as artists-in-residence, house-mothers, and flying
make the year alive with new interests.
All these things, of which we will some day have
fond recollections, must be recorded in Knox History.
This Gale is one volume in a never-ending series which
might be called an autobiography of Knox College.
If this attempted record of the 1940-41 epoch of Knox
does not fulfil the stated requirements, please accept the
regrets of the editor. with her hope that the year meant
enough so that you will remember it anyway! B. F.
