REV. JOSEPH K. DRANE, S. J. Dean, Loyola College TO THE MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1951 My brief connection with Loyola College and yourselves does not allow me to address you here with the same personal intimacy which other members of our Faculty have enjoyed with you. None the less, 1 believe that I can say that, during your last year here at Loyola, I have observed among the members of your class tokens of the maturer point of view that comes with the completion of the courses in a Jesuit College. I believe that many of you have demon- strated your appreciation of the responsibilities of a Catholic College Graduate. You recognize the obligation you now have of carrying into your various occupational environments your knowledge of Catholic Culture, Catholic Ideals, and your Catholic Religion. You are aware that the contribution, which our Democracy needs to receive, of Catholic thought and Catho- lic good example must come from yourselves. I am confident you understand these state- ments and the obligations they connote for your- selves. It is my sincerest wish that your com- munity will profit by your living up to them and that you will thrive by exercising them. I hope that your connection with Loyola College and with the advancement of Catholic Education will continue. I hope you will in- creasingly become aware that what this little College has tried to do for you, you must try to do for others through this same Catholic In- stitution. The work of Catholic Education is far too serious and far too vast for me not to remind you that you must remain actively interested in it. Sincerely, Dean (REV.) JOSEPH K. DRANE, S. J.

REV. THOMAS J. MURRAY, S. J. President, Loyola College Graduation messages date back a very long way. One of the first that I recall was that of Christ to His apostles at the last supper. They were graduating from His school; three years He had taught them and trained them. Now they were about to go forth into the world, an uncertain world, and so the theme of Christ ' s discourse was Encouragement and Love. His words were designed to give them strength and life through the stormy days ahead. These two ideas: Go forth in strength, and courage, have been more or less the theme of all commencement speakers ever since. In Christ ' s Commencement Address, two things stand out. First, the love of His heart pouring itself out in farewell to these men who had been with Him. Rough, unlettered men they were when they came to His school; uncouth, stupid at times, yet surprisingly loyal and very whole-heartedly for Him. The second thought He repeats over and over again. He will not leave them orphans. In His tender love He will give them something better than His mere bodily presence and com- panionship. His Holy Spirit will be given to guide and help them; His grace, a light to the intellect, a strength to the will; making their souls His temple and the abode of the Most Holy Trinity. This remembrance of Cod ' s presence and assistance would strengthen them and give them courage in the face of all the future could hold. I will be with you He had said; and they soon discovered that one with God is a major- • . ity. This supernatural outlook, this outlook of Christ ' s first graduating class is the greatest gift Loyola has given you. May you keep it always. THOMAS J. MURRAY, SJ. President, Loyola College

FRANCES ALAN MEEHAN In 1949 Al was stricken with polio. He was in his sophomore year at Loyola. His illness forced him to withdraw from school. By virtue of great personal courage and intestinal fortitude, Al has returned to Loyola, though handicapped as he is. We sincerely thank Al Meehan for showing us how to turn defeat into victory. 6
