EPTEMBER, 1947, and with mixed feelings
of regret and expectation the four classes re-
turned to campus. The freshmen orientation
period was followed by the confusion of regise
tration, then rushing, and finally the college was
able to settle down both to Worlc and to play.
ln most cases pseudo wisdom was replaced by
a real understanding and appreciation of
classroom opportunities. The veterans were still
a steadying influence on Lalte Forest life,
Seniors loolced baclc on their college years
with a sense of pride as well as with a feeling
of loss for the soon-to-be-broken friendly ties
that had held them so long. This class of '48
differed marlcedly from the one which had
entered as the green freshmen of '44. They had
started college in the troubled, uncertain war
years, they were finishing college in still
troubled times, but they had hope and faith in
As the seniors guided the other classes
through the year they, with three years of
experience behind them, set the pace and
standards for the Foresters to follow. Under
senior leadership the Student Council became a
more important influence than ever before in the
affairs of the college. The Student Center
Committee, under a senior chairman, made
concrete steps in the re-modeling and im-
provement of the Coffee Shop, student
gathering spot. Homecoming, College Day,
and other events were carried off successfully
The juniors reveled in their first taste of being
upperclassmen but they took life more seriously
than when they were sophomores. The high-
light of their year was the presentation of the
junior prom. Juniors were active in all campus
groups, gradually assuming more and more of
the responsibility which they lcnew they would
have as seniors -campus leaders.
The class of '50 had become worldly sopho-
mores. A few suffered from "Sophomoritis",
which turns friendly wide-eyed freshmen into
lordly upperclassmen before their time. perhaps
they played harder than they worl4ed, but they
gave some serious thought to the future and
tangled with the perplexing problems of de-
claring maiors. They also became activity
minded and worlced and waited eagerly for the
day when they would be editors, presidents,
and chairmen of the numerous organizations
which add to the experiences of college life.
As they struggled through the early weeks,
first overcome by parties and then by red cards,
the freshmen wondered if they would survive.
Slowly the confusion lessened, with typical
freshmen energy and drive they started on the
long road to college prominence. As the
puzzled pledges became actives and watched
some of their hard-fought-for "Cs" change to
"Bs", they were spurred on to even higher
pealcs. They loolced forward enthusiastically to
the college years ahead.
Every class had a part in the success of this
college year. They worlced together towards a
common goal, It is not one group of individuals
or one class that malces Lalce Forest, it is the
student body as a whole. For this reason the
Forester proudly presents each class in pictures,
their officers, their classmates, and their in-
