l Late in the summer of 1913, one month after the
assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand at Sara-
jevo, Edward, Lord Grey, Britain's Foreign Minister,
looked out over London's evening skyline and said to
his wife: f'The lights are going out all over Europe.
They will not be relit in our time." Today, lifty years
later, a light has gone out in the United States, John
Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest man ever to be
elected President, was killed in Dallas on November 22.
Because of his age Kennedy was close to us. He
represented a first step toward positions of leadership
for this generation of students, he was making the way
Kennedy's youth was important for the Presidency
as well. His energetic direction stimulated policy plan-
ning and decision making from Executive Avenue to
Foggy Bottom. He liked his advisors to be concise and
knowledgeable, able to produce information the mo-
ment it was needed. At the same time Kennedy brought
an intellectual perspective to his office with his almost
bookish sense of history and his extensive reading
habit. His concept of this nationls place in world affairs
led him to innovate with the Peace Corps and stand
fast on traditional policy during the Cuban crisis.
Kennedy's idealism was tempered with a shrewd
sense of the possible. Robert Frost recognized the Pres-
ident's genuine personality when he warned him before
the inauguration to keep the Boston in him and leave
the Harvard behind. This practicality was inherited
from Honey Fitz and Joseph Kennedy and earned as
well in door-to-door campaigns in Boston's South
wards. The balance he brought to the job of the Presi-
dency will not be seen in that office for many years.
A light has gone out. The candle was relit, it must be
hoped, with a reawakened gentleness, the human feel-
ing which was not present in Dallas two weeks ago lj

l Around us, the knowledge gathered from more than a hundred different back-
grounds, and as many viewpoints. Our time is limited, here before and after us,
these people provide a continuity and a link with the past and future of Holyoke.
By some, we are taught to take notes and repeat them on demand, by others, to
question and to create. The austere, stiff-collared scholar lectures on Plato and 40
students are silent, animated, the poetic talent sits on the living room rug and gives
insight into the mysticism of Yeats, spilling his coffee in the explanation. For a
while, we learn by seeing through their eyes, and there is that happy chance that
we will learn, with freshened vision, to see through our own lj
l Increasingly I am Wearied of the pun-

tum ad nauseam. The same could be, but
generally is not, written about men. The
reason escapes me why, so often, men are
treated as individuals, as persons, and
women as stereotypes. Differences within
the sexes, it seems to me, are fully as im-
portant as differences between them. Each
sex is made up of persons who vary tre-

of the individual contribution of their

l The 127th year of Mount Holyoke College, known
in the outside world as 1963-1964, will I am sure be
remembered by everyone at Mount Holyoke as the year
of "The New Curriculumf' Actually the changes in the
curriculum which were put into effect in 1963 do not
add up to a "new" curriculum. Mount Holyoke's fun-
damental ideas about a liberal education were not
changed, but certain procedures and structures were
altered, we hope to the advantage of students and fac-
ulty members. The new sorts of introductory courses
are meant to provide greater continuity between sec-
ondary school and college, making it possible for stu-
dents to meet the general education requirements by
courses which are neither repetitive nor beyond their
grasp. As to the shift from a live course program to a
four course program, this was meant not to achieve an
easier academic life for faculty members and students,
but to provide everyone in the college with a less com-
plicated pattern of life in which it would be possible to
concentrate on and achieve a deeper understanding of
fewer subjects at any one time. This has been only the
first year of the experiment, but I hope that for every-
one who can remember the 'gold daysf' it has proved to
be more satisfying, and that for freshmen it has been a
program into which they have been able to move with
continued stimulus and reward lj

l g'Without inner psychological liberty, outer civil liberties are not enough. We c
talk civil liberties, prosperity, democracy with the tongues of men and angels, bun
is merely a case of "free from what?W and not "free for what?" if we use tl
freedom for no other purpose than to commit television or go lusting after supc
markets. ln contrast with earlier eras, ever more colleges want to know: is t

student reckless enough to ask my unstreamlined advice, I can only growl: "Your

shockingly devoid of leadership qualities.
No new trend and no bad trend would be involved if social adjustment w
means, not end, that would still allow for ultimate spontaneity and personality.
depersonalization characterizing the present trend is the goal of adjustment as
end in itself. Thereupon the goal of adjustment, defensible and indeed indispensal
as a social lubricant, becomes far more than that, it becomes the prime determir
of human relationships, recreations, aesthetic tastes, and moral opinions.

l I keep coming back to the view that
philosophy is not an isolated, wholly ob-
jective and impersonal activity, but rather
a way of life--a commitment of the
widest and deepest sort-whose ade-
quacy is determined by how well it fulfills
oneas need for self-expression. If, as I be-
lieve, the aim of philosophy is self-knowl-
edge and self-control, then philosophy
must neither be separated from the other
activities of life nor identified with any
one of them. All our yearnings, religious
and scientific as well as moral and aes-
thetic, must be satisfied Q

Members of the Class of 1964:

l Before going to college I used to wonder why graduation exercises
were called "Commencement" Now I am very conscious of the way
in which these exercises are a beginning. Not because present-day stu-
dents-for all their initial eagerness to board this special train-often
chafe at the measured space and pace of those four years and can
hardly wait to get off and "out into the world," but rather because l
hope that while aboard the students have taken in certain Vistas which
will remain a part of their inner landscape.
I should wish them to have gained a lively sense of the unity and
continuity of things, to be aware of the clear if unfanthomable anal-
ogies between growth of a plant, a crystal, a work of art, a human
life, a healthy social order, and their own ties to all of these: namely,
our profound individual and collective relationship to nature, to the
past and the future, as a setting for the present.
I should wish them to have developed a critical appreciation for
that uniquely human gift, the written and spoken word. I want them
to be excited and caught up by quality of form, substance, pithiness,
and creative, imaginative force as much as I hope they will be irritated
by folderol, jargonese, wishy-washy bombast or cant.
I should wish them to acquire and keep alive the ability to wonder
and admire, to be intellectually curious, surprised, moved. I hope
that increase of knowledge will increase rather than diminish this
return. I trust they will see their diplomas as transfer tickets to that

Perhaps there is no occasion, during a student's undergraduate career, when
:'s ego-image is more at stake than when one undertakes student-teaching. Why
his so? Well, perhaps because when we teach others, we confront, not a roomful
school children, but ourselves: we see in their faces, we observe in their responses
l behavior a reflection-as in a muddied mirror-of our own hopes, our own
looks upon life, even our own frailties and inadequacies. Thus in an important,

lcate not only others but also ourselves. Teach, then, that ye may be taught, and
ye judge thy pupils, judge thyself lj
l My decision, five years ago, to accept the offer to
come to Mount Holyoke College to build up the Russian
Department and its major program was largely deter-
mined by what I read in the catalogue and learned about
its founding as a Seminary for Women, its early Chris-
tian tradition, pioneering, history, and its present religi-
ous-educational heritage, aims and endeavors on the
campus and in its curriculum. An educational institu-
tion with such a background and "philosophy" ap-
pealed to my personal aspirations and interests, and
promised the right kind of atmosphere and profounder
attitudes and motivations on the part of students to-
wards learning and education in general.
It seems of great signilicance to me that even today,
in spite of all historical, cultural, and ideological vicissi-
tudes and the "Zeitgeist" of our age, Mount Holyoke
College has still remained true and dedicated to the
spiritual tradition of its founders. It rightly regards this
tradition and its meaning as an indispensable part of a
whole, organic educational process without which edu-
cation would lose its final moral justification, its founda-
tion, profoundest meaning, direction and supreme spirit-
What this also means and involves is education of the
"heart,' as well as of the "mind" It seems to me that
this is still what in the final analysis distinguishes Mount
Holyoke College even today among many other liberal
arts colleges, and represents a token, a challenge and a
promise of its new creative possibilities right now and in
the future. Perhaps we should not too lightly overlook
and neglect this creative challenge and opportunity. If,
however, our temptation tums out to be complacency
and indifference to higher ideals and spiritual values we
can always remember that there is an old way to spiritual
renewal and regeneration through sincerity and honesty
of self-analysis, self-criticism, humility and repentance.
Better late than never.
Youth has always been full of great and beautiful
ideals. "Hammer the iron while it is still hot," says a
Russian proverb. Let us not allow our highest and most
sacred ideals and values to be profaned and destroyed.
Mankind needs today more than ever moral heroism of
youthful "realistic idealists," men and women to help to
recapture and to realize its lost or forgotten ideals and
acts as a new leaven and salt of the earth. Dangers are
many-from enslavement in a meaningless passivity and
boredom to nihilistic destruction and self-destruction.
The deeper the ills the profounder and stronger must
be the remedies. The highest Ideal before us, however,
still remains, and will have to remain, the ideal of the
universal Brotherhood of men with the consciousness of
the Fatherhood of God to all men, and man's Sonship to
Him, in one family of loving brothers and sisters. With
such an Ideal in the hearts and minds of men and
women, all life's education and learning receives its pro-
foundest meaning, and a proper, most lasting, fruitful
and creative motivation, even in language learning, be
it Russian, Chinese or something else.
The greatest of modern Russian novelists of the nine-
teenth century, Dostoevsky, in his revelatory, prophetic
and psychological insights, felt, predicted and warned
us against creeping and developing nihilistic tendencies,
subtle Hspirituall' and ideological temptations and en-
slavements, and of hidden manifestations and processes
of evil in the human heart and nature which have be-
come more obvious to us first in our own times. He saw
this development mainly as a manifestation and a grad-
ual working out in the minds, hearts, and lives of mod-
ern men, consciously or unconsciously, or various fonns
and shades of atheism which he summarized and ex-
pressed in a form of a "proposition', with its "logical"
conclusion: that there is no God, no immortality, there-
fore, everything is allowed, even murder and crime
Clvan in The Brothers Karamazovj. But Dostoevsky
also saw and knew of our own and common, direct or
indirect, involvement in it all. This he expressed through
the mouth of the Elder Zossima in his last and greatest
novel, The Brothers Karamazov, saying that everybody
is guilty and responsible for everyone and for every-
thing that happens in mankind CZossimaD. Today we
can hardly escape anymore the disquieting awareness of
the reality and truth contained in these words.
Two events from our own recent and common experi-
ence stand out fresh in my mind at this time, pointing in
the same direction. They also have determined to a great
extent what has been said above, and it seems they
should be also of particular significance to the graduating
class of 1964. They are Martin Luther King's visit and
his calling and plea to Mount Holyoke's audience in Oc-
tober, and President John F. Kennedyis assassination in
November, 1963. Both events and both personalities are
somewhat strangely and prophetically interrelated, fol-
lowing and echoing each other in my mind. Are we lis-
tening strongly enough? Do we hear what they really
have to say to us? "If you know these things, blessed
are you if you do them."

l To my mind the role of the professor of history fthe only field I can speak forl
is not to transfer a large body of information to students' notebooks, information
which could be better acquired from books, but to try to promote an understanding
of the complexities and inter-relationships of historical events and an understanding
of human motives in history by analogies with contemporary reactions. Even more
important, however, is the effort to encourage students to learn to think. It is not a
question of teaching anyone to think, but of trying to create situations which will
give students an opportunity and incentive to use their minds actively instead of
absorbing passively. What I try to do is to stimulate an interest in analyzing,
criticizing, questioning, and interpreting the Hfactsv of history. An insight of onefs
own is more exciting, more meaningful and leaves a deeper impress than anything I
might say, however significant. Obviously a knowledge of facts is necessary to
suggest the insights, but the facts are not ends in themselves. The end result, I hope,
is a habit of questioning, the ability to think and communicate in a variety of
subjects and situations. Since the ability to communicate is inseparable from think-
ing, I give my students experience and guidance in oral and written communication.
One cannot communicate effectively when oneis thinking is fuzzy and one cannot
think clearly without being able to formulate one's thoughts for communication.
My thought on this subject was expressed over four hundred years ago by Casti-
glione in The Courier:
"For he that hath not knowledge and the thing in his minde that
deserveth to bee understood, can neither speake nor write it.
Then must he couch in a good order that he hath to speake or to
write, and afterwarde expresse it well with wordes: the which
ought to be apt, chosen, cleare, and well applyedf, lj

We must remember that sociology is not an end in
elf, but a congeries of approaches to the understand-
g of society, that these approaches are not sulficient
themselves, but are best used with the aid of such
ciplines as history and literature, and above all such
ciplines as common sense, proportion, and perhaps
:n sympathy and humor. While it is infinitely true

When in 1943 I Hrst knew Mount Holyoke College, my friends and
I thought, and I still feel, that the major distinguishing feature of the
Mount Holyoke Type is kindness: Kindness in small things and large,
kindness in narrow areas and broad. There is no greater compliment
I can pay you. I hope that when we return here in twenty more years,
this same quality will be clear among your descendents, that in forty
years when your grandchildren look for the essence of the MHT,
kindness will be high on the visibility list.
Fortitude, courage, guts-this too I wish you. You will develop
this quality only over time. Such an attribute is not so readily visible
as kindness, except on rare occasions only you yourself will know
that you have it, that you must use it. Physical courage, while impor-

l The aim of the study of political sci-
ence is to free the individual from the un-

politics which may not only be false but

The subject challenges both student and

the influence of reason in politics Q

l Both the man of science and the man of religion construct a model of "the world
out therel' for the purpose of gaining relevant, authentic information about that
world. Each of these models has its own purpose and its own philosophical stance.
Moreover, neither of these models is ever completely objective since there is no
escape from the human dimension. In fact, one might say that on this point
Heisenberg has influenced modern science in the same way that Kierkegaard has
influenced modern theology.
Heisenberg indicated that every description of 'fthe world out there" contains an
element of uncertainty and indeterminancy. He showed that the more accurately we
try to measure the location of an electron, the less certain we will be of its
speed-and conversely, the more accurately we try to estimate its speed, the less
certain we will be of its location. Thus, we-and the tools which we use-are
involved in and affect our measurements. This Uncertainty Principle has refuted the
claim concerning the universal predictability of the future and has forced the
recognition of a subjective ingredient. An important result has been that the old
mechanical models of science have been for the most part replaced now by mathe-
Kierkegaard has had a parallel effect on theology. He insisted that we do not
know as much truth about "the world out there" as we thought we did. The real
may not be the rational as we conceive it, nor the rational the real. Truth is
distorted by our own involvement. There is no neutral observer, we cannot escape
the subjective element. A parallel result has been that the old Hegelian models of
theology have been in the main replaced now by personal or existential ones.
This is no justification for subjectivity and irrationality. Rather, both the man of
science and the man of religion now are, or ought to be, more humble and
circumspect about the claims that they make for their models. They know only too

of any of this, yet they make us remember lj

I How do we at Mount Holyoke look, and how do we look at Mount Holyoke?
The cute little freshman who begins to pack for her weekend on Wednesday and
continues to talk about it through Tuesday, the history major who is actually
thinking and learning up there in thc stacks, the cynical senior who has had enough
of ivy-league insularity and will never send a daughter of hers back, the same
senior who steals over to the Mandelle bridge to listen to the waterfall, the scien-
tists at time-wasting who sometimes wonder why, the troubled poet who has
smoker's cough and orange-striped paiamas-one realizes that the adviser who
told her reality-seeking advisee that the real world was right here was indeed right.
And in this heterogeneous world, we affect and are affected by the campus, the
traditions, the others, the spirit of the place. The school both offers and denies so
much, and in distinct ways we feel at times joy and at times bitterness lj

them to have a balance in a spe-

lut weekend at Clarke University
in Wooster. This fonner gang-
member, who is now "lighting for
my people," is working with the
Harlem education project and or-
ganizing Negroes to assert their
rights against their landlords.
The importance of the confer-
ence, however, is not completely re-
vealed in his talk or in others giv-
en by leaders from NSM, CORE
and SNNC. Although it was bene-
iicial to hear vivid explanations of
the approaches of these organiza-

at Mount Holyoke is under discus-
sion, the role of NSA, an organi-
zation supported by S900 in the
SGA budget, should be examined.
At last summer's USNSA Con-
gress, representatives passed a res-
olution calling for "cooperation

of NSM and SNNC and promised

Governor Nelson Rockefeller has
launched his long and lonely bat-

The odds against him are tower-

place of eminence and intemational
affairs already assured, and watch
with detached concern the rout of
a Republican foray into the 18th
eenturyg to smile benignly, if pain-
fully, as Goldwater pitted yester-
day's answers against tomon-ow's
But this he could not do. He had

It is hard to imagine what goes

aware that in another time and an-
other place, if he had only fought
a little harder, if he had only had
a little more confidence and a lit-
tle more experience, he would have
been in the White House today -
Whatever the odds against him
in 1960, they have now multiplied
tenfold. By all the orthodox rules
of logic and physical probability,
Rockefeller is attempting the im-
possible. But Rockefeller is not Ill
orthodox man: he wants to be
President. And he knows why.
He is driven by conviction and
concem. He sees in Goldwater a
threat not only to the unity of the
Republican Party, but also to the-
principles on which it is founded.
In his view, Goldwater appears
willing to sacrifice the principles
of human dignity and equality in
order to carry the South and to
validate by electoral victory his
Rockefeller is not unaware that
he himself poses a threat to Re-
publican unity, but he is willing to

Pegasus Editor Requests
Merger of Library Efforts
To the Editor:
Pegasus can be more than a bi-
annual publicationg it can be a
force for student creativity on cam-
pus. It is this that has motivated
'those of us who have worked on
iigs sta!! in the past and is espe-
cklly important to us this year.
It is for this reason that we
have organized poetry readings and
requested SGA support. The aims
of these are not to provide a pleas-
ant evening and maintain the mag-
azine, but rather to give an oppor-
tunity for a more dynamic expres-
sion of all forms of work being
done by students.
But at this point, we can go no
further without a more important
form of aid - student interest and
imagination. lt is in connection
with this that we have been most
disappointedg too few people sub-
scribe, too few submit malarial, too
few attend the readingsl Part of
this is due to an unfortunate and
incorrect image of what Pegasus
is. There is a strange form of
thought prevalent Ygzcampus that

stitutes good work. But good work.
we do demand, and if this consti-2
tutes a criticism of Pegasus, then
the magazine has no reason for
The explanation for why we have
been critical of other literary pub-'
lications on campus in connection
with our desire to spur creativity
nmy seem strange. I assure you,
we are not concerned with being
"the most important' publication
or of being rivaled. Quite the con-
trary, we are excited by anyone on
anything that will augment the'
work we are trying to do. The
question is rather one of whether
,ws want several mediocre llllgl-
zines on campus or one good one.
There is simply not enough high
quality work being done to support
more than one publication if the
level of the work contained is to
be respectable. A consolidatioh'

they might as well do a realistic
job of it. Unfortunately, part o

Neverthless, an audience can still

me, the disappearance of this spe-

Szell possesses a profound sense

La Belle Americainc
By Juliane Kruger '64
Aside from long hair, dazed Ve-
ni-vidi-vinei looks, and, hopefully,
some sruface polish, we look the
same. We still cheer for Amherst,
forget to sit our bells, and get be-
hind in assignments. Yet we are
changed. It is a clnnge which came
about as the natural result of
spending a year abroad.
Built-in pride would have us so-
phisticated cosmopolites, but the
change is all inside, and paradox-
imlly, the change is not a change
at all. It is simply that we are
more completely our total selves
fthan we ever were in our first two 1
,years of college. This is the most
fprofound and far-reaching result
f the year.
in Attempts to pigeon-hole the phe-
nomenon lead to such empty state
-ments as "A broadening of the
-mind." This clnnge which is not a
change, and is easily lost in the
shuffle of postcards when assess-
ing the concrete gains of a year in ,
Europe, is best recognized as a re-
newed sense of perspective . . .

perspective as we packed to go. I

Of Word Meaning

Linguistic Analysis or Ordinary
Language Philosophy, according to
Max Black, considers words as they
are used, as part of utterances, not
as they ought to be used. Speak-

Black drew an analogy between
language and a game. The words
are the pieces, and grammar serves
as a set of rules. The determina-

As an example of the procedure
to be used in the investigation of
the meaning of any particular
word, Mr. Black used the word,1,
"reasonable". Traditionally this
word might have been defined as
"one who is able to bring to bear
on a particular situation a knowl-
edge of general rules he has laid
down for himself on the basis of
experience and insight." However,
Mr. Black pointed out that not very
many people could be found to iit
this definition. One of the few
might be Adolf Hitler. He then

ltwould be s mistake to regard
the partial nuclear test ban treaty

By his decision to negotiate a
partial test ban with the West,
Khrushchev has given visible ex-
pression to his oft-mentioned con-
cept of peaceful coexistence. How-

the essence of the Soviet concep-
tion of this benn, it becomes obvi-
ous thlt the manner in which the
Russian leader conceives of it, is
not closely related bo the view held
by Westem lenders.
According to Khrushchev, peace-
ful coexistence "in its simpliest ex-
pression . . . signifies repudiation
of war as a means of solving con-
troversial issues . . . fltj also pre-
supposes an obligation on the part
of all states to desist from violat-

rity and sovereignty in any form,

Khruschev reasons, is the wave of
the future: it is historically inevit-
able: thus it does inot require war
ing the stimulus for further West-
em military appropriations, thus
reducing Western military mobil-

wmational climate of opinion that
would inhibit Western reliance on

IRC Guests Analyze
by Barbara Werner '65
The annual IRC Intercollegiate
Conference, focusing this year on
the topic "Africa: P:-'terns of Lead-
ership" was held fn campus last
weekend. Nearly 60 students in-
terested in the current state of Af-
rican affairs travelled to Mount
Holyoke from nearby men's col-
leges, NYU, and Wheaton College
to discuss trends and ideas with
seven guest speakers and each
other. The presence of ten African
students enlivened the interchange
and insured discussion of events
significant to Africans themselves.
Discussion included ketches of
individual African leaders, analy-
sis of their problems and policies,
and an examination of United
States policies towards Africa's
emerging nations. In his keynote
address Friday evening, Dr. Im-
manuel Wallersteln, Chairman of
the University Seminar on Africa
of Columbia, anticipated the issues
of the conference ln a stimulating
presentation of his thesis that it
is not easy to be an African leader
According to Dr. Wallerstein, the
major concerns of these leaders in
1964 are the liberation of non-se1f-

l Whether you ascribe to dialectics or phenomenal-

though professors may seem to begin again where they
left off in June, the Sunday evening rush at the reserve
desk appears to change little from year to year, and
most of the same students are back, there is invariably
a subtle change in tenor. A sophomore's outlook in one
hall will differ considerably from that of a senior in
another, but the new spirit is sufficiently tangible and
pervasive to make itself felt by the entire student body.
This year brings us close to the mid-decade, a point
which suggests a reflective halt, some self-conscious
introspection. As we look back on recent years a string
of issues appear. There was the chapel furor of several
years ago, followed by the agonizing reappraisal of the
honor code which emerged from spirited debate as the
somewhat ambivalent community responsibility code.
The trend of re-examination and renovation culminated
in last year's promising social rules changes.
Such progress has done much to create a noticeable
atmosphere of satisfaction among students. Although
there is still much to be gained by continued efforts
along these lines by student government and adminis-
tration, increased privileges seem to be more than rosy
chimeras. Concrete advances such as the liberalized
policy towards cars on campus and the simplified sign-
out procedure for upper classmen, have done much to
lessen the cries about South Hadley's insularity.
When affixing labels, however, an "atmosphere of
satisfactionf' is far too tenuous . . . yet no cause celebre
presents itself. For there was none. There was no real
issue for which we dropped bluebooks or hurried to
President Getell's office. Therefore the year is labelled
quiet. Or uneventful. Or unprogressive.
Yet it was not uneventful and was certainly far from
unprogressive. Innovations which were won in picket-
ing lines at Tuesday assemblies, in Ad Hoc committee
meetings and through comprehensive poll-taking, were
experimented with this year and put into effect. This
made it a year of quiet work behind the scenes, of
paper work and tabulation of results.
Perhaps we are also hasty to call the year uneventful
because there were no issues generated by the students
themselves. There was one far-reaching change, how-
ever, initiated by the faculty and effected by the admin-
istration, which served to focus the communal interest
for the year. The 1963-64 catalogue looks like all the
other slim blue and white volumes on the outside, but
on the inside it reveals a vast and far-reaching change.
This year marked the initiation of the four-course
system. More than any other single factor, it contrib-
uted toward the tenor of "experimentation" this year.
Behind this long-range innovation lies the optimistic
belief that a liberal arts education is not a medieval
concept which must retreat into genteel retirement as
the demands upon it become greater. In pragmatic
terms it meant a curriculum change which is sensitive
to the accelerated high school curricula and responsive
to the demands of the highly-specialized programs of
The change resulted in shorter and more concen-
trated courses, particularly on the introductory levels.
It is now possible for students to complete their general
education requirements in only a year and a half and to
specialize sooner. Or if they desire, it is also possible
for students to take a wider variety of courses.
Generally the four-course system has given students
a new concern. Too vague to be labelled an issue this
concern for academics could best be called an "aware-
ness" It is manifest as criticism or complaint about the
added responsibility implied in the curriculum change,
or as appreciation of and interest in the opportunities it
affords. Nevertheless the awareness exists.
In a very real sense we have come full circle and are
now back at out point of departure. Issues in recent
years germinated in the extra-academic framework of
an essentially academic community. This year the new
curriculum focused attention on the fundamental raison
d'e?tre of the community: its academic essence.
If curriculum changes focused awareness, student
leadership sought to channel it. In going far beyond
their offices to commit themselves deeply to broad aca-
demic considerations, the president of Student Govern-
ment, the chairman of Judicial Board and the repre-
sentative of National Student Association, helped to
direct intellectual growth in the college community.
In an early October address, Betsy Callaway stated
that her most immediate concern was precisely to gen-
erate interest in academics, an aspect that she felt had
been over-shadowed in recent years. She suggested a
possible direction for the year by lamenting the preva-
lent belief that the academic and the non-academic at
Mount Holyoke were unrelated . . .
In February, Student Government sponsored a con-
ference "Educated, But How and Why?". Speaker,
panel, and faculty-student dialogues sought to define
the liberal arts ideal and to extrapolate it into the
Mount Holyoke context. The question of whether or
not they succeeded is not as important as the fact that
the conference helped to crystallize awareness among
both students and faculty on academic issues. It was
the first real sounding board of its kind in years. The
considerable audience participation proved that aware-
ness was wide-spread. . .
The current concern for the intellectual did not imply
any disequilibrium between the academic and the non-
academic. Indeed as there was no paramount issue fo-
cusing the attention of the student body as a whole, and
generating tension to hold it together, students tended
to cluster together and give their efforts to diverse activ-
This resulted in far more dynamic extra-curricular
organizations. Students seemed to join far fewer than
before and to give far more of their time and energy to
the one activity of their choice. Strong leadership and
creative organization injected new life into Drama
Club, the College Social Committee and several other
groups. The new Holyoke Tutorial Program seemed to
evidence a healthy refusal to succumb to the traditional
isolationist tendencies of a college community.
As extra-curricular organizations tended to grow
stronger, a second trend also became more noticeable.
Congruent to the first, it is neither as healthy, nor as
optimistic. General student support at the events which
many organizations sponsored was at an all-time low
this year. Drama Club produced well-directed, well-
acted, well selected plays for minimum audiences, and
when the Social Committee sponsored Lester Lanin and
Gerry Mulligan, it became increasingly difficult to bal-
ance columns . . .
Perhaps both of these trends are symptomatic of an
over-all fragmentation of student interests as Mount
Holyoke expands and the loci become distinct activities
and separate dorms . . . In the long-run, however, one
might ask whether interest in academics and one organi-
zation will become more significant or if lack of support
or interest will spread.
Is it that, as students become increasingly absorbed
in their particular activity, they have no interest left in
participating in the functions sponsored by other
groups? Is it true that the four-course system with its
increased work leaves little time for participation? Or
are there just too many activities sponsored?
Or is it that college generations are always selfish
and concerned just with themselves? One seeks ration-
alization in a multitude of questions and answers.
Does the insecurity of a nuclear age make one fatal-
istic? Or does the complexity of society and the increas-
ing competition for jobs foster a lack of ambition and
the urge to find the easy and secure way out? Or per-
haps a decline in moral standards and a disrespect of
law and order as seen in the Christine Keeler case and
the assassination of a President makes one despair
or disbelieve or question liberal ideas about freedom,
the individual, and his actions. And we have been
called an uncommitted and uninvolved generation.
Still one can be hopeful today. American people
seem to be regaining their confidence in the future and
their ability to act. We were more aware and ready to
risk with Cuba last year and the Test Ban Treaty this
year. The existence of extreme political groups, left and
right, Negro and white, the remnants of a vague ideal-
ism of some new frontier and a clear conscious conserv-
atism give one a choice. Finally, whatever the result or
major issue will be, people are now looking ahead to
the 1964 election of next November instead of stagnat-
ing in contemplation of last November.
And here one-sixteenth of the student body is partic-
ipating in the Holyoke Tutorials and interest in political
internships is high. The News has tried to direct interest
beyond South Hadley, and people found Martin Luther
King, the Race Relations Conference, and Nicholas
Wahl thought-provoking and relevant.
Even if the connection between the college commu-
nity and the outside world seems tenuous, it is still
possible to be optimistic about Mount Holyoke this
year and in the future. A fresh appreciation of Mount
Holyoke as it is today seems to be emerging. Despite
some normal disaffection, destructive criticism and
withdrawal from the college community do seem to be
in the process of being replaced by constructive direc-
tion and action El
l Student Government has found itself in a kind of
limbo this year. Like the lull after a storm, there has
been a general-and perhaps necessary--torpor after
the long period of turbulence beginning with the chapel
furor several years ago and culminating in the rules
changes this year. Moreover, this has been a year of
experimentation with the new constitution and new
rules changes. Feeling its way along, the Student Gov-
ernment has been forced to be self-consciously reflec-
tive of its actions and has been fettered by the binds of
an untried system.
Given this situation, the Student Government has
attempted iirst and foremost to make the new system
work-to analyze it and to recommend changes. The
Executive Board has attempted to define its role as
intermediary, coordinator, and initiator. Through its
negotiations with the Administration the Board has
worked out rules changes and settled such questions as
limitations on students' extracurricular activities. It has
also activated student committees such as the Curricu-
lum Committee, which, through surveys and discus-
sions, has sought to analyze the effect of the change-
over to the four course system, and the Rules Commit-
tee, which has sought to formulate a simple and reason-
able rules book.
The stumbling block in the system has been the Leg-
islature. Separated from the direction of the Executive
Board, the Legislature floundered in uncertainty,
trammeled with its new procedures. The question for
next year is whether with the wisdom of this year's
experience it can be made to function properly, or
whether the whole system needs to be reorganized.
The Judicial Board was faced with the task of inter-
preting the new rules and setting precedents for penal-
ties. Attempting to make its decisions rational, the JB
emphasized explanation rather than coercion. But at
the same time the JB has been concerned with main-
taining a fundamental order in the community through
an effective system of penalties. The biggest question
for the Judicial Board this year-still unresolved-has
been, "Where do individual freedom and extenuating
circumstances stop and order begin?,,
The problem of most concern to the Board this year
has been disturbing evidences of a lack of appreciation
for the system of personal integrity and trust on which
the community operates. This seeming lack of respon-
sibility, deeply upsetting not only students, but the ad-
ministration and faculty as well, generated serious dis-
cussion of the honor system and of, perhaps, the neces-
sity of redefining the principles upon which the commu-
nity is founded.
SGA,s central effort for the year was a conference on
the liberal arts education. Taking a positive tack, the
Student Government sought to foster a constructive dia-
logue between the students and faculty on the nature of
the educational problems at Mount Holyoke. The dis-
cussion degenerated somewhat into specifics and com-
plaints, but it did spark serious thinking.
Looking ahead, the greatest problem for Student
Government is communication. The students are apath-

ause the students do not respond. The disease is

iting the system. As the college grows larger, per-
s a central-based system with numerous vestigial
endages is no longer appropriate. Perhaps in the
ire, the emphasis will have to be more on the smal-
nits, the dormitories.

Aware of this situation, the Social Committee, in
conjunction with ARA, innovated Kafe Kendall. The
quasi-cabaret Kafe sported folk singers, rock and roll
or jazz bands, mixer informality, pizzas and cokes. At-
tendance varied from 35 to 1000 on Saturday nights.
The Social Committee also innovated Serendipity C'the
faculty of making accidental but desirable discover-
ies"D, a booklet which provided descriptions of amuse-
ments both on and off campus.
An attempt was made for improving the party week-
ends on campus. Lester Lanin at Holly Hop and Gerry
Mulligan for Snowball were costly and reflected the
Committee's desire to furnish better entertainment. A
spirit of cooperativeness was seen among campus
groups: Dramatic Club produced No Exit on Holly
Hop weekend, and the Dance Club presented their con-
cert on Friday of Snowball weekend.
Most successful, however, were the house dances
during Snowball weekend. Students seemed to have a
higher degree of loyalty to the dorm and were therefore
more motivated to attend. Abbey-Buckland's spring
theme Cin Februaryb, Meadis crap and black jack ta-
bles, and the Mandelle's professional clown, cotton
candy, and good band, all displayed an element of
originality and novelty and suggested that in the future
the dorms might become the most effective social units.
The dorms have already shown their increasing im-
portance in providing cultural programs that are di-
verse, beneficial, and effective. Last year fl962-635 a
group of "cultural activitistsl' in Mead hit upon the idea
of entertainment at tea or after dinner. This year, much
to everyone's pleasure, other dorms have followed suit.
Despite some continued problem with support in the
preparation of such programs, the degree of coopera-
tion between dorms and the enthusiasm among the stu-
dents is promising Q

l The International Relations Club is
designed primarily to provide the Mount
Holyoke student body with a means of
gaining knowledge about contemporary
international problems, separate from,
but also possibly supplementary to, class
work. Its activities are not, however, con-
fined to the Mount Holyoke campus
alone. Interested members may partici-
pate in several inter-collegiate confer-
ences in the eastern United States and
Canada. In addition, as in the past, an
effort has been made this year to achieve
a better coordination of activities with the
International Relations Clubs of Smith,
Amherst, and the University of Massa-
chusetts. One concrete result of this at-
tempt was the joint sponsorship by the
National Student Association and IRC of
Mount Holyoke and Smith of an address
by Mr. Imanuel Wallerstein.
Although there have been other on-
campus activities sponsored by IRC this
year, the primary effort was devoted to
the Inter-Collegiate Conference held on
February 28-29, 1964. Dealing with
f'Africa: Patterns of Leadership," it began
with a key-note address by Professor Im-
manuel Wallerstein of Columbia Univer-
sity on the evening of February 28th.
Continuing on the 29th with panel dis-
cussions by several experts on the various
regions of sub-Saharan Africa, the Con-
ference concluded with a banquet and ad-
dress by Mr. Fred Hadsel, Planning Ad-
visor of the Bureau of African Affairs of
the United States Department of State.
The Conference was quite successful,
focusing on an interesting, extremely
timely subject, and attracting not only ex-
cellent speakers, but also a sizeable dele-
gation of students from other colleges
who actively engaged in the two-day
events. The Conference was extremely re-
warding for those who participated in it,
and it is regrettable that more students
did not take advantage of the opportunity
to gain an increased knowledge of the

Anne Burr tutoring in Holyoke.
Whitney Young at Forum, February ll.
l When we came to Mount Holyoke, we were all tof
in one of those frantic orientation sessions that we wel
expected to continue our education outside of the clas
room and the library. Because chapel attendance is Il
longer required, exploration into our own and othm
faiths comes under the category of individual and vo
untary education. For this reason Fellowship of Fait
has tried to stress its function as an educational asset
the campus. Many old programs such as faith gro
meetings, experimental chapel, study groups, volunta
community work and interfaith worship have been co
tinued and expanded, but we have also attempted
anticipate needs for study and action and thus ha
been able to provide new programs of vital interest
the students as a whole. Therefore our two largest prc
grams have been the beginning of a tutorial project i
conjunction with the Civil Actions Group and our ow
annual Campus Conference which concerned Race Ro
Iations in the North.
Felping a family paint their living room . . . bring-
outside contact to a patient in a mental hospital
. square dancing with Veterans and bringing change
dull life . . . building houses from blocks with
ren who spend their day in a nursery because both
parents must work, sharing some of the load and
of working with a Girl Scout troop . . . To the
ll who rarely gets individual attention or to the
pon whose life is circumscribed by retardation, it is
1 important. If nothing else, it will at least give them
feeling that someone cares for them. This is the
reason for the existence of the social services
ram of the Fellowship of Faiths. Mount Holyoke is
rt of a community larger than itself and by moving
this wider community, a student can gain a per-
:tive upon her academic life. Beyond this the rea-
s are as varied as the many girls who quietly devote
w hours a week to one of the many projects.
'he Holyoke Tutorial Program challenges the col-
girl to shift her focus from the vision of theoretical
ilition to a broader and more purposeful view of
cation: application of knowledge for the benefit of
ers. By teaching rather than being taught, by giving
er than receiving in an academic situation, she sees
scope of her own education at Mount Holyoke.
'or students who had had contact with the civil
ts movement before the Campus Conference, the
ference served to clarify and unify ideas presented
my times before-discrimination in the North is
'e subtle and therefore more dangerous, housing,
cation, and employment are the targets for the drive
equality in the North, the problem is not just a legal
confronting the government, but a moral one facing
1 individual. Students who had not heard Martin
her King and other leaders discuss the philosophical
s of the drive for action NOW and direct non-vio-
action were confronted with the sense of imme-
:y inherent in a move for equality which challenges

'he Civil Actions Group was formed in response to
as a stimulus for the sense of excitement existing
campus about the civil rights movement. The first
ject of the group was the Holyoke Tutorial Program
nsored in cooperation with FOF-tension and feel-
ran high while the organizational details were being
'ked out, but the two groups reached a satisfactory
tionship when the Civil Actions Group was made an
officio organization of FOF. Student awareness of
ramifications and implications of the movement is
wing with the desire for more direct involvement.
: group hopes to maintain the dynamic aspect of this
ing by providing a framework for civil action proj-
i beyond the tutorial.

ights projects are reflected in their thoughts about

right: college girls just can't do it.

enough to confide in you. When other community or-

l In an effort to gauge the tenor of HOurselves, l94
64," the aim of the Llamarada stali was simple:
sought to give a written and pictorial expression
what it was like to be at Mount Holyoke this year. 'll
execution of our goal was complex and in a mt
tude of ways revealed to us the varied and occasions
extreme approaches to the school. The reality of i
book has steadily grown with long hours and care
analysis, and the staff has provided a constant che
against themselves, perfecting and re-perfecting. S1
Llamarada is not without error.
Especially significant was the response, although
licited, from the student body. Both financially '
creatively, that is, by subscribing and by contribu
copy and ideas, the community insured a more accu
account of the year. It is hoped that the book is a tr
ful account and, at the same time, maintains the tr
tion of expressing the ideals of the college lj
I The Mount Holyoke News serves as a catalyst, a
force for change when it is needed. The editors enjoy a
special place apart from campus activity-as commen-
tators not actively implicated in perspective-clouding
involvement with causes and pseudo-causes. As free
agents, we are free to go where we will, and, guided by
the dictates of discretion, print what we will.
The News also serves to sharpen the awareness of
students to issues like the four-course experiment and
civil rights which, because of repeated emphasis both in
the News and elsewhere, brought lower levels of re-
sponse. In both cases we were trying to bring together
the forces which could provide the constructive leader-
ship each problem must have to create understanding
and, hopefully, some concrete solutions. In our edito-
rial handling of the four-course experiment, we were
trying to effect closer, less artificial ties between faculty
and students. With civil rights, we have urged that

year. New programs have included a series of tapes
featuring Ayn Rand, a comedy show worked up by the
creators of this yearas Junior Show, a broadcast of the
125th lecture series including Robert Frost, Edward
Albee, W. H. Auden, Aaron Copeland, Adele Addison,

broadcast of classical religious music such as Handel's

Such popular standbys as Campus Quiz and the baby
music labs have been continued.
The radio station is meant to benefit the student
body as a whole-not just those who Work on it. Cam-
pus bulletins are given every evening at 7:15. At elect-
ion times WMHC is on the spot, taping press confer-
ences and candidate's speeches. These are rebroadcast
several times to assist the student in intelligent voting.
With an eye to increased audience, WMHC has given
FM radios to every dorm so that everyone will have at
least some chance of listening. Still disturbed by re-

student body only if students will indicate what they

bitterness at Holyoke. More than once she has shaken herself out of
depression so she could firmly take someone's hand: "How-do-you-

has been in some way unfair. More than once she has been an angry

future of the college. She knows there can be no improvement in idle
criticism. It is the sub-freshman who will bring another new idea, it is

selective process, and no wonder. Ask a freshman why she came here,

the self-centered existence
of most of the members of

they give some of their in-

from the strictly academic
sphere. Mt. Holyoke boasts
more than an academic her-

extinction for lack of vital

"There are some bad professors-maybe because they,re not inspired, maybe
because they couldn't give less of a damn about what they are teaching, maybe
because they hate to teach, maybe because they hate people, or maybe because
they're not too bright-and they make you want to crawl back into bed. But there
are some good professors that make you come back to the dorm and dance on the
bridge table. There's nothing greater than being inspired." lj
l And when you are inspired, it makes it all worthwhile. Sometimes you owe it to a
single teacher. But it is that teacher who saves you, who saves Holyoke, who saves
the system of American education. And we have some of those here.

l Education is supposedly a lonely process Q
l Unforgivable cold made talking almost too much of an effort.
Especially on a Friday night in February. On the way to Clapp with
Comparative Foreign Governments and a neat package of three by
fives. The girl was conscientious though, even on a desultory Friday
night. So she made the effort.
"Well, I guess from what her roommate said, and her roommate
didn't really know the girl, she left because she was tired of being
alone." Each of her words made an impact of its own on the empty
winter air. They didnit flow. They sounded hollow. She was surprised
by the shrillness of her voice. She tried again.
"But I mean, can't you understand that girl? Can't you see how
something like that could build up and then-poof!" She snapped her
fingers. No noise. It was too cold.
She suddenly whirled on her friend. In the obstinate coldness she
turned to her friend. She was surprised by the despair which swept
her. And even as it did, a detached part of her being laughed at the
silliness of it all.
"Haven't you ever been so lonely sitting in that geology lab think-

stones, that you have to get up and go look out the window because
youfd have hysterics right there on the spot and you can't because
you have a quiz the next day on Nehru or the uro-genital system of a
tadpole?,, The girl stopped. As suddenly as it had begun, her despair
subsided. She could even think to herself, "Il y aura route une etude ci
faire la dessesf' Dissect it.
"Oh sure, I know what you mean," her friend said. "Sometimes I
feel so lonely here surrounded by my own carbon copy wherever I
look that I just can't take it. Once-you're going to laugh-once I
even thought about jumping from the window of that damn geology
lab." She laughed nervously. That had been really stupid to say.
Besides she'd only felt like that for a minute.
Oh god, oh god, the first girl thought to herself. And her quieted
despair became self-righteous anger. Girl, you just don't have the
mind to grasp what I am aiming at. She looked away from her

l An Amherst student spoke at chapel there a few
weeks ago on the subject of love, specifically, love on a
campus like Amherst's. ln a world where "being a
man', is essential, admitting a warm feeling for others is
almost impossible. He felt Amherst was on the whole a
cold campus, and this made me wonder about Holyoke,
too. There is to an extent an emphasis on coolness here,
coolness is certainly the antithesis of emotion. And so,
with coolness there is coldness, and it is disappointing,
and it is a denial of human nature. People seem so
afraid sometimes to drop their barriers, to get close to
others. Perhaps this isn't Holyoke, or college, but the
world. But perhaps college is the time to begin an
assault on this Q

self and be in love . . .
. . . the empty-headed blonde who is beautiful and
wealthy and worries about nothing. You talk to her for
4 hours one night and discover that she's disgusted with
herself, her values, that she's leaving home this summer
to mature and straighten herself out. She also tells you
some amazingly incisive things about yourself that you

I After having been here for only two weeks it is very
difiicult for me to say what I actually like and dislike
about Mount Holyoke. This is primarily because I
havenlt been here long enough to dislike anything.
Therefore the best I can do is give you some idea of the
first impression Mount Holyoke gives.
The most outstanding thing that struck me was the
intellectual air of the campus. The girls appear to have
a genuine thirst for knowledge which is depicted in all
phases of campus life. The girls are able to converse
intelligently on almost any subject which I feel is due to
the versatility of interests of each individual. There is
an enthusiasm among the girls which is apparent both
in and out of the classroom.
Another outstanding characteristic of the Mount
Holyoke girl is her deep- concern for and interest in
other people. So often you find college students that do
not seem to care about anything that does not affect
them directly. But the girls here appear to be interested
in international as well as national issues El

I . . our room was small and yellow and on the
fourth floor and I got there second and got the smaller
closet in the hall which we used as both of us had
mountains of stuff. We had a bit of tension deciding
what to do with the room, but then I sometimes like
contrasts like brown or gray to yellow, and my room-
mate thought yellow would be nice for the bedspreads.
But then, l'm not choosy about room decorations and
at times have a messy room, and then only sleep in it as
I'm afraid of it I guessg but anyway we got yellow
bedspreads and ended up putting my beachtowel in the
window as we ran out of money and the window was a
strange shape. It's funny, now I remember only the
winter in the night or the dark evenings in that room
when it was cold outside and my yellow blanket felt so
warm and the lamp sort of glared down on us. And the
room seemed very cluttered in the winter and I remem-
ber studying one night very late when my roommate
was asleep and everything seemed to pile in on me. I
had this piece of old driftwood in the window . . . it is
very ugly . . . and then some pennants and stuif all
over the wall in a random fashion. I had a warped
bulletin board and my roommate did not have one and
later she got fined because she put too many thumb-
tacks in the wall. She was for Nixon and I was for
Kennedy and I really did not know anything about
politics then, but my father was for Kennedy and Ste-
venson and I did think that Stevenson was very intelli-
gent. She put this picture of Nixon on the wall but I did
not retaliate because I did not care enough. Now we
both strongly believe in what Kennedy stood for. Even
if we don't still room together, we are friends, for that
room was something between us lj
l It's really great getting ready. You've been crossing out the days on your desk
calendar with a broken magic marker. Now it's here. The weekend. You like to
draw it out. Getting ready. Take a long hot shower . . . listen to the Beatles, even
dancing a little as you put on wild eye-liner, packing a couple books youill never
read, finding something to wear on Sunday if you go out walking behind the
museum. Excitement wells up. You look at the mirror and smile. It sure doesn't
look like you! Your roommate straddles the easy chair, twisting and untwisting a
rubber-band, thinking of some God-awful paper due Monday. She's not going.
The road never ends . . . It's the same every weekend, only you always forget.

There's a note on his desk: "I'll be in Lawrence working on my architecture

bottom drawer under that impressionism book. I earned a couple bucks baby-sitting
for the coach. Hurry!" Smooth down hair, some hasty lipstick. Does this skirt look
all right with this sweater? Excitement again. Your hands are so cold! You run up
to Lawrence. Williamstown is always freezing. Why, you wonder did you come in
stacked heels again? You slip into Lawrence. Door slams hard behind you. Try to

bluebook. If I can get an A in that damn econ course Yale is clinched. Just think,
I'd be working with Rudolph!" He looks at you. A lump like a mountain cuts off
your throat. Suddenly. It's so quiet in the darkening room. His hand strokes your
neck absently. The late afternoon winter sun sets slowly. Shrimp colored light
floods the room. The first tender-bitter moments are the best.
There's a blatant banner over his littered desk: "WHEN BETTER WOMEN
ARE MADE, WILLIAMS MEN WILL MAKE THEM." Its cocky defiance makes
you smile. Some old Playboys, with pages open to where the Playmates-of-the-
Month have been cut out are stained with beer and old cigarette ashes. The
Governmental Process, Arndt's Totalitarianism and a Webster's are scattered un-
noticed on the floor. Volkswagen keys on a lucky rabbit's foot are stuck in a Vassar
mug. Cigarette smoke has been thick since ten o'clock . . . There's no more beer.
And you feel rotten. Just rotten. It's not beer. Just inside.
He's been playing "Cocaine" since nine. Ten times he's played it already. It
happens every weekend. After dinner everyone always gets together and plays

sit there bored with each other and the boys play guitars. You try to talk to a girl
from Green Mountain. Every weekend always the same. You look at him. "No
kidding," says the Smithie, "right there in the den, no kidding." Drink up little girl,
About four you're numb. Inside and outside. They're discussing last night's
basketball game, or next week's squash match, or an astronomy professor. You're
out of cigarettes. Your mouth tastes metallic. Your hands are sticky from stale
beer. You can't keep awake. Your eyes are flaming. Everyone's leaving and he
looks at you. Sudden recognition. Well, well, well . . . Andre Segovia remembers
he has a date. You're sullen as he puts your coat on. Distant as he walks you to
your room. You turn away. "Of course nothing's wrong. Does something always

Sundays are leaden. When you've spent the rest of the night walking under new

empty. Grand anti-climactics. He has to call three other fraternities before he can
get a ride back to Holyoke. You sit around drinking coffee while you wait for the
ride. And all the magic of a quiet winter night becomes a bad joke. Suddenly you
grab onto him like you will never let go. It's only Sunday and the week is so long.

worth it. And I am happy in myself Q

l There is something very creative about the scholar who can take his huge
body of information in a specific field, and interpret it in a completely for partiallyj
new way, shed new light on an old subject, maybe even propound a new theory
which is rather exciting lj
I like to form opinions mainly on the philosophies involved in controversial prob-
ns, rather than on the problems themselves, since Ilm sure I don't know all the
:ts. Then I apply my opinions to the facts available. If new facts become available
an I might change my opinion on the facts, but as long as my philosophic opinions
nain stable, I have not really changed my position lj
l Now that the newness of college has worn off, I can
objectively analyze my feelings about Holyoke. I still
like it on the whole, but sometimes I feel trapped, like
the whole world is in South Hadley. I live for the week-
ends and for vacations, not because school is so bad, but
because it's so confined. It seems as if Ilve been here
As with any genuine decision, both subjective and
objective factors were important in my deliberation over
the transfer problem. I remember Miss Douglass once
saying that Mount Holyoke would fail its students if it
did not engender a kind of discontent, a thoughtful and
questioning mind. I was swept into this line of thinking
at the same time I was enjoying the novelty and excite-
ment of freshman year. Carried over into sophomore
year, when things had become more familiar, I suppose
doubt simply became obsessive.
Since I have been at Swarthmore, I have noticed just
as strong a discontent among sophomores and juniors-
a feeling that the "routine" they have established is not
fresh and exciting enough, that "academia" has its
limitations. Once again, I think this attitude is a function
of a sincere searching nurtured greatly by the institution
itself. I realize more clearly now that the second-year
disenchantment which I felt at Mount Holyoke was not
so much the fault of the college as the result of my
reaction to a solid educational experience.
No course of action is ever clearly black and white.
I believe that in the process of transferring I have found,
partially, what I was looking for, and the very action it-
self has taught me something which I might not other-
wise have known. But I have missed New England's
beauty, as I have missed Mount Holyoke friends. I have
attempted to combine the best of two worlds, I hope I
l I dropped German because I donlt like it-and with
it, all pretensions of ever graduating from a liberal arts
college. So this is my last semester and I am drinking
the blood of every second because I love it and always
will and I will never know anything, but I will always
want more than anything else to know. I have this
passionate desire for knowledge. But in reality all I
know is that Fm leaving. It is ironic that I should now
finally and inevitably realize how much I want to know
and at the same time how impossible it is. A college
diploma suddenly has a strange, mystical importance
because actually it is reserved for a very few, not the
best necessarily, but the ones with a certain kind of
stamina and strength jj
l Learning is useless when cloistered

l . . . and the academics truly distinguish us. We are pushed, kicked, coaxed and
chided by top faculty. Perhaps we are too often pushed to a particular way of
thinking by one member, but when we are given that taste of many attitudes, our
educational process becomes that of knowing, of self-thought, not of learning
another's attitude. At MHC, we have this chance, not in each course by any means,
but one such experience can create a more attentive mind which asks mis this true,
or is it true for Mr. 7" We need time to understand this distinction and for a bit of
self-realization, but this hopefully comes eventually lj
I . . . and each student did have more time-if only because of less class
hours--and was forced to decide what she would use these extra hours or minutes
for-be it bridge, coffee at Glessie's, more reading, or more extra-curricular activ-

here is the tremendous opportunity to learn. Every time I turn another page of a
book, I see how little I know and how much I have to learn. But I also see how
much I have learned in a little more than one semester. If I could, I would spend all
my time in the library, just reading. The professors have so much to oifer usg I wish
I could take full advantage of their knowledge and their experience. Dinner discus-
sions with them are great lj

l "lt doesn't work, I tell you, it doesn't work. Life is
not like that. We all sit here and talkwand talk and talk.
Everyday we come to this place and sit beneath the
cypress and talk and talk and talk . . . and what does
it do? Nothing! who listens to us? Few. Perhaps a
student here, perhaps One there. But relatively few.
Sometimes I get very discouraged. I want to say there is
nothing ever approaching the ideal. It is all foolish. All
these terms and jibberish we play with . . . every day
when we gather we dream and argue and hope. But, I
tell you, it does not work. You have got to try these
things. Ideals are line, but you cannot persuade women
to train naked with the men, you cannot have commu-
nity children . . . the human psyche is too complex.
There will always be this diversity, this tremendous
difference from One to another. The Eighth One, who
is away today, observing the conditions under which
youth learn, will tell you. It is a totally individual experi-
ence. The cry is for study-controlled scientific study
to investigate these problems. But the monkey with the
bleeding ulcer is as far away as the bald little tinker.
Don't you see? What we say will be faithfully written
down on the Great Scrolls, and for years and years we
will be called by such adjectives as "great," "known,"
"respected,". "devoted," "original," "infIuential": but
the truth is: we are all saying the same thing: there are
principles and problems in education. They exist. Given:
the fact. It is the axiom we all try to play with, to make
less or more true. And it cannot escape us, it only eludes
us. The answer is not in a word, not merely Order, or
Key, or Training, or whatever, the answer is ourselves,
that we are human, and therefore subject to the uncon-
trollable variables that make us human. For all the
errors that are committed in the name of education, for
all the fallacies in our primary logic, for all that we say
we believe in, whatever our political system, and what-
ever our goals, the truth, above all, is that we are con-
cerned. We see the essential importance, the gigantic
tasks involved, and we must necessarily marvel that we
are as successful as we are in educating the young as it
is. For the numbers of mediocre approaches, and yes,
people there is a rare teacher: one who glistens as the
finest in a lot of objects that have the potential for shin-
ing, but seldom see the sun and it does not therefore
illuminate the facets. And it is this rare One who saves
us all. I do not mean to belittle our conversations, nor do
I mean to say the monkey, the pigeon, whatever, is not
contributing anything. That would be a false impression.
And if we are nearer the truth, it is because of this circle
and because of that study, we, who are concerned and
thinking, must also realize this much-that every man
has a personal truth upon which he acts, and which
makes him the individual he is. Granted this truth is
shaped by the home environment, the family structure,
the classroom, the teacher, the peer group, but the
possibilities of interplay are so great, the concept
touches the reaches of Infinity.
They sit quietly, and for a moment no One speaks.
And, then, iinally a ninth One joins the circle. The
Ninth One had been listening all along to the Seventh
, V V 'if' .
Ones spoken thoughts, and finally the Ninth One said,
"You have been well-educated."
'flt was becausef, said the Seventh One, "in the
beginning I was allowed to think, and then someone
had said to me, "No, don't think." I was confused until
I reached out and touched a sun-warmed force that
said, "I command you to think." And so I started to
think again, and when they had tried to take the think-
ing away, I saw how precious and irreplaceable it was."
A Tenth One came in with tea. 'flt has started to
grow dark," he said. All will soon leave and it will be
quiet until tomorrow.
No. It will never be quiet. They will always come to
this place, and it will glow in the midst of the darkness
outside, for this is a sacred kind of light. The unspeak-
ing cypress nods over us, and we drink together.
Three students come in. There are I2 in the circle.
The light grows nearer, and they go. They become part
of the distance. But the place is there, and now and
again they assemble and speak with One another. The
Twelfth One clasped hands with the First One as they
went. And soon, in the vision of this One, all of Them
merged into One. It was a secret to some that they had
been the prismatic extensions of One all the while lj

was the place for me-or had I made a mistake? Last year as a sophomore I found
myself in a dorm with many people of similar interests and we had many hours of
real fun playing bridge, competing in interdorm athletic contests, and just plain
fooling around like occasional water fightsg but finally, this year I feel I have gotten
my college years into a more accurate perspective with regard to my life as a whole
and my personality as a developing and very personal part of my character. College
now has become not just a grind of studies Cmy courses are more to my liking and I
enjoy putting time in on themj, nor even just a good time of water fights or bridge
games and bull sessions. Rather college has become a time to integrate my person-
ality into the whole of life--the life which awaits me after graduation-a time to
set up lasting values and to live by them, to decide what things are important or
meaningful to me now and which will still be so ten years or so from now. College
is a time of growth, but when one finally begins to see the results of this growth, it
is a most wonderful and gratifying experience Q

is find out just how the hell your roommateis been all

sparse. '6Let's see if Karen's back yet," she suggests.
You call her and she's in. You go chez elle and find
that, if possible, her room is in worse condition than
yours. Since you have to go uptown anyway, you stop
off at Safford to see if the thousands of people you
know there are back yet. And so it goes, visiting the
people you donit realize youlve missed until you see
them again. CAnd the sadness that goes with that
thought: if you hadn't come back, would you have
remembered them? Would they have remembered
you?J Finally, the day ends and you throw everything
off your bed: "No visiting tomorrow, we've got to get
this room straightened!" You fall into bed, wondering if
there ever really was a summer after all. There must
have been, you decide, there's something different
about this year: rather than coming to school, you've
come home Q
l For me Mount Holyoke is not an
amorphous, impersonal mass, nor is it
dissolved into a city. Neither is its simple
conception of the academic life compli-
cated by the magnetic attraction of men
to be encountered around every corner
. . . which, being an ambitious sub-
freshman who realizes the sheer frivolity
of her existence in high school . . . was
the reason I came here lj
l My junior year abroad introduced me to the immense lot to be gained from
frequenting coffee shops and knowing men in a non-dating situation at 2 o'clock in
the morning. Most of life has not been written in a book which one can absorb in a
library carrel, and since we are doomed to spend the rest of our existence in the
world and not in books . . . But I am not sorry to return to Mount Holyoke for my
senior year. Having been awakened to many potentialities I am more able to take
true advantage of those here. l am still glad of the opportunity for concentrated
study during the week, but I have learned the possibilities of conversation over a
coffee cup, too. Weekends away are still weekends away-a disadvantage, but a
positive advantage, as well. One is at Mount Holyoke, a college of higher learning,
after all, to study as well as grow up, and, having been away for a year and studied
under a town-dwelling, co-educational system, I am more convinced of the academic
advantages of Mount Holyoke Q
l I will miss Mount Holyoke next year. Perhaps that is one of the biggest tributes
that I can pay the school. Mount Holyoke is a way of life which, in spite of our
complaints, is one that emphasizes stimulating and important things. We are on the
threshold of realizing our real potential, as much as anyone ever does, and it is
exciting to think about what we can do in return for what we have received. Yet we
will remember the four years here as a time of completion, of maturation into the
person we ideally want to be. We've worked hard, and we've played hardg and
sometimes the lines between work and play become obscure and all we know is that
we are busy . . . but this is when we are happiest. I will be proud of my Holyoke
degreeg I will look at it with a sense of achievement. And I will miss Mount
I Four years is long and four years is short.
When it is long-I am the center-
I thought "I don't want to grow up" for the last time.
Then who will I become-Am I ready to accept her as me?
Little things look big-I need perspective.
The day is too short when hours are filled with new or
old friends, ideas, opportunities-a happiness.
There is so much-How will I choose?
Excitement because I am here-the sky is so blue-two
long cups of coffee, a dishwasher peeks into the dining room-
I'm off-a walk-class is good-no lab-
Coffee break-a lecture-Why isn't there more time?
I begin to look outward-I'll be ready to leave in June lj
l When you have graduated you will be unable to imagine Mount Holyoke
without you. It really no longer exists. But looking at the problem rationally, you
concede that, yes, Mount Holyoke does exist. And indeed you still have a friend
there in the class behind you. And what if the same thought occurs to your friend
and to her friend in the class behind her? On the one hand there's some sort of
continuum and on the other a cycle composed of discrete segments of alternating
existence and non-existence. The whole thing reminds you of something Homer
said in the Iliad:
The wind scatters leaves on the ground, but the live timber burgeons with leaves
again in the season of spring returning. So one generation of men will grow
while another dies lj

I Freedom-but with this freedom, responsibility, aloneness, maturity, adulthood
. . . for all these years of school were secure ones.
A definite feeling of achievement. Perhaps mingled with a few regrets as to what
we might have gained-and didnttz studying we could have done and over-
looked-the course we couldn't fit in-books not read, lectures missed-even
sports we could have mastered. But-this definite feeling of achievement-almost
of triumph. And of thanks to those who have given us all these opportunities Q
l And so this is what happened here. The experience is not simply
snowfilled newness, nor is it just the mud and grime of yesterday's
rain. Like personalities and languages, it had an origin, and we have
attempted to trace that conception. We know, however, it began with
each of us somewhere between eighteen and twenty-two years ago,
and that initial moment was the genesis of something particularly
unique in that each of us experienced it, but there could be no two
like experiences. What is further attempted, and in the most primary
sense it is this aspect which is the most vital and important, is the
development from the germination of the implosion of awareness,
that is, the Mount Holyoke Experience. We do not claim Holyoke
gave us intellectual birth, we do claim it gave us freshened vision. We
do not claim Holyoke made us smile all our waking hours and
inspired happy dreams during rest-filled nights. This is not an idyllic
yearbook, and the intent was neither haphazard nor random. There is
herein contained both the white blanket and the slush and it has to be
that way because life is that way. For the indisputable ambivalence
there is the cathartic Cl cup of coffee and the closeness of seeing
others who are, in their individual way, sharing the Holyoke experi-
ence. By looking at the institution with certain critical appraisal we
do not mean to tear it down, only to admit what is here . . . whether
to make it better or to say realistically some of this will always be
because it is Holyoke, because it is a woman,s college, because it is as
it is, because we are ourselves. "The school both offers and denies so

'64 WE SALUTE YOU
The perspective from which '67 sees
Is the level of the floor
The giant to whom she bends her knees
Is superlative '64,
Every way '67 turns to stare,
Flowering as from a spore,
Blossoms blue mark out that there
Was superlative '64.
In Eskimo igloo, Auca thatch or pagoda of Tibet,
As independent or Peace Corps,
Surely the best that they could get,
Is superlative '64.
This creature, with beauty as Venus on the shore,
With poise as a model of Dior,
And also charm, as the Duchess of Windsor,
Is superlative '64,
What to '67 but wide-eyed wonder
And Hitting image, as through the door,
On to farther lields out yonder
Passes Mount Holyoke '64?

The justification for a university is that it preserves
the connection between knowledge and the zest of life,
by uniting the young and the old in the imaginative
consideration of learning. The university imparts in-
formation, but it imparts it imaginatively. At least, this
is the function which it should perform for society. A
university which fails in this respect has no reason for
existence. This atmosphere of excitement, arising from
imaginative consideration, transforms knowledge. A
fact is no longer a bare fact: it is invested with all its
possibilities. It is no longer a burden on the memory: it
is energising as the poet of our dreams, and as the
architect of our purposes.
Imagination is not to be divorced from the facts: it is
a way of illuminating the facts. It works by eliciting the
general principles which apply to the facts, as they
exist, and then by an intellectual survey of alternate
possibilities which are consistent with those principles
Youth is imaginative, and if the imagination be
strengthened by discipline, this energy of imagination
can in great measure be preserved through life . . . The
task of a university is to weld together imagination and
experience . . . You must be free to think rightly and
wrongly, and free to appreciate the variousness of the
universe undisturbed by its perils.
. . . The combination of imagination and learning
normally requires some leisure, freedom from restraint,
freedom from harassing worry, some variety of experi-
ences, and the stimulation of other minds diverse in
opinion and diverse in equipment. Also there is re-
quired the excitement of curiosity, and the self-confl-
dence derived from pride and in the achievements of
the surrounding society in procuring the advance of
knowledge. Imagination cannot be acquired once and
for all, and then kept indefinitely in an ice box to be
produced periodically in stated quantities. The learned
and imaginative life is a way of living, and is not an
article of commerce.
. . . Education is discipline for the adventure of life.
Alfred North Whitehead, The Aims of Education
us.'."' ' V'
.l lt was that kind of belated March day that sneaks, hang-over-like, into early
April. A friend of mine and I were walking back to our dorm from a class. She
stopped abruptly in the middle of the Green and peered through needless sun-
glasses at the overcast sky, then she held her hands out in that hopeless, somewhat
glorious gesture of emotion which l had learned she applied to any frustrating
"You know," she said to the sky, but loud enough for me to hear, "everyone
around here raves about the Spring. Before I came here, the girl from Blue Key
told me about it. Then my freshman year, in the middle of my Winter doldrums,
all the upperclassmen told me about the Spring. So now I've waited and waited-
for four years I've waited, and I've finally figured out that it's a Big Lie. There's
no Spring here.
"There is a small cloud that hangs over South Hadley. It keeps the sky grey most
of the time, and once in awhile, to change the pace, it drops some rain on us."
She dropped her hands to her sides, gave me a slight shrug which was supposed
to be significant, and we continued our walk, a little faster now, not because of a
clearer destination, but because it had started to drizzle.
But Spring never comes the way the other seasons do. There isn't the gradual
transition that happens in November when the flamboyance of Autumn turns
brown and falls to the ground, to be covered by Winter's white, or the progressive
warmth of late June that announces the coming of summer. Spring happens sud-
denly. One March day after another comes and goes into the next, a never-ending
tableau of needle-like clumps of struggling brown grass and stark skeletal trees
l Windows open.
The warmer air seems to carry and amplify every sound. ln the
daytime-lunch dishes, typewriters, and rebounding tennis balls. At
night-cardoors, crickets, and, of course, Beatles Q
l Spring makes it all worthwhile. The
catalogs and the posters were right.
Nothing is wrong. How lucky to live in
such a beautiful world. It was a long
time coming, but now nothing else is real
except the pansies in the formal garden
and the bleeding hearts, and the green,
green leaves on the trees, and the lilacs.
That special smell in the air and that
special feeling which creeps through the
ivied windows into the library, making
study impossible Q
l Spring makes me want to run naked
over a golf course . . . but as soon as I
take my shoes off, I catch cold Q
l The steps of Spring are measured in
Arriving with a bound, a burst of Yel-
low forsythia against the last gray snow-
bankg then skipping softly through White
apple and pale cherry blossoms, awaiting
the proper setting-the moment when
everything is green up to the sky-to
Haunt on abundant magnolias her most
glorious Pink Q
. . . And then one day, Without any warning, the long-absent sun emerges. It had
rained all through the night before, the world had been washed clean. A cautious
crocus or two appeared shyly at dawn, forgotten streams and brooks recommenced
their suspended flow, and because it had rained, there were still enough drops left
clinging to rooftops, cars, trees, grass, to rellect and refract the sun. The morning
was outrageously bright, light poured from everywhere, falling upon everything.
The pervasive dankness of cold March mornings was gone, and the air was
warmer and drier than it had been the day before lj

I The site of the tree house experiment
became a center of activity this spring as
the long-planned language dorm received
a foundation. What is presently a neat
concrete-lined hole in the ground will, by
the fall of 1965, provide housing for 120
students of modern language lj
l Father's Weekend is one of Mt. Holyokels most
happily entrenched institutions. Most of us resolutely
decline that invitation to Dartmouth or Princeton, hop-
ing that he will call again. We scrounge around for a
room somewhere Chopefully not too far awayj and
make a reservation for 16 at the Yankee Pedlar.
All that Mt. Holyoke offers is paraded before the
men who foot the bills, with such an elaborate time-
exacting schedule that only the hardiest fathers see it
all. Most will move ahead at their own speed-some
spending all day at golf or tennis, while others attend
classes and lectures. The weather somehow always
seems to turn out beautifully. Spring is just beginningg

I During the spring, civil rights continued to be an
issue on campus, drawing students into lively discus-
sions in class, at Glessies, at tea, and even in a Saint
Augustine jail cell.
On March 17, Claud Weaver, a SNCC field worker
made a profound impression on an all-too-small group
of students. Assembled in the comfortable New York
Room, a thousand miles from Mississippi, most were
even farther removed in experience from this young
man who described "a police-state organized to resist
the Negro from the top down."
While some members of the college Civic Action
Group were initiating a survey of Negro job-opportuni-
ties in Springfield, and participating in Greensboro
voter-registration programs, others were taking an aca-
demic interest in the Civil Rights Bill.
During their annual Washington Seminar, sixty-
seven Political Science students were assured by Sena-
tor Strom Thurmond that, "This legislation is not
needed." But one could not deny the tension generated
on the Hill as proponents of H.R. 7512 began organ-
izing their forces to resist the Senate filibuster.
Social involvement is essential to the academic com-
munity. The faculty, with the proceeds from their
Show sponsored a Higher Horizons project this spring.
The program seeks to accomplish what its name sug-
gests-to present the possibilities of new opportunities,
college in this case, to high school students who might
normally consider such goals unattainable. Thirty-two
tenth grade girls were brought from New York City to
the campus to be introduced to a liberal arts, residen-
tial college-to the adventure of higher education in
general, not Mount Holyoke in particular.
The long-range effects of the program are not im-
mediately calculable, but the weekend was greeted en-
thusiastically by everyone involved. The two-day
schedule included folk-singing, water ballet, and a
picnic, as well as attending classes. A formal welcome
was extended by President Gettell, and Miss Ludwig
explained the meaning of, and methods of pursuing a
liberal arts education. Yvonne Watford expressed a
characteristically positive reaction, "I had a terrific
time. I liked the class on how to read poetry best
because I love poetry, and the teacher brought out
things I never noticed before. I like the way the stu-
dents get into the lesson, they feel free to speak even if
it's not exactly what the teacher is looking forf' Q
l The week preceding Father's Weekend was an un-
easy one for many who were working on Brecht's
'Threepenny Operaf' The omnipresent question was
that of the reaction of the audience of fathers and
daughters. Brecht's venomous attack on bourgeois
thinking and ways of life is unmistakeable, unavoida-
ble, brutal. The relentless coarseness and cynicism of
the work is offensive to the middle class and is meant
to be. Weill's music screams out the frustrations and
despairs of a useless life, gives instructions on how to
survive, and points the moral that it is not worth it to
be top dog. How could an audience so removed from
this way of thinking, an audience of fathers and their
student daughters, grasp and accept the meaning of
existence as seen by the Peachums, Macheath, Jenny
and her whores, and all the other malicious and ubiq-
uitous exploiters of human beings in a world they have
never seen or do not wish to see?
The response was admirable. For although Brecht's
point was not a pleasant one, the audience seemed to
react to the production in the spirit in which it was
presented--with the idea in mind that this was indeed
a valuable piece of dramatic literature. Those who at-
tended "Threepenny Operal' for the purpose of identifi-
cation were destined for a slap in the face. For
Brecht's method is one of audience alienation. Those
who permitted themselves to identify with Macheath or
the Peachums or Polly or Lucy or even Jenny-and
who could fail to feel sympathy for a man about to be
hung, betrayed by his former companion in poverty,
already nearly forgotten by his bride as well as by his
loyal gang-were not allowed to see the end of an all-
too-real sequence of human events. For the characters
stepped out at the last moment and mocked the audi-
ence to its face, admonishing it like a group of children
that this is an opera, not real life, and therefore must
have a happy ending. The progress of events is cut
short, summarily tidied up into a neat little saccharine
bundle, and ended. The audience feels deprived of its
continuum of entertainment and feels uncomfortable as
well because it has been because it has been pushed
back into its position as an audience with the implica-
tion that it is an unneeded, possibly unwanted part of
what has taken place before it on the stage lj
l One of Mt. Holyoke's most ambitious
projects this spring was the hrst United
States presentation of the Fitts-Fitzgerald
translation of Oedipus and the Fitzgerald
Oedipus at Colonus. A dramatic reading
of the translations, condensed and com-
bined for presentation at a single sitting,
took place in the amphitheatre, beginning
at dusk. As the tragic king's questioning
progressed to its climax, night advanced,
and the progress of the drama was il-
luminated by effective lighting.
Mr. Fitzgerald's reading of Oedipus
was an interpretation of the Platonic
Thinker King in its highest sense, and the
staging, playing on the juxtapositions of
distance between the characters and be-
tween the characters and the chorus,
augmented the intensity of thought and
the concept of implacable fate behind,
within, and around the progress of events
which carried its characters to their
The few frailties which lay in the read-
ing stemmed not from the sensitive trans-
lation of the works, nor from the techni-
cal aspects of the presentation, but from
its actual vocal delivery. And yet the
total power of the creation was not
diminished. For the work possesses a
stature which defies delineation and such
frailties can only be regarded as extrane-
ous. The privilege which was ours in be-
coming acquainted with the concept and
physical presentation of Greek drama
will not be soon forgotten and hopefully
this precedent will become a tradition in
our amphitheater Q

l I think-now, after four years of hesitation-that
two main reasons why I am at last greatful to Hol-
yoke are the time and the space that it offers.
First, time: time to change, seek new friends and
ideas, to engage in different activities, all without outs
side responsibilities and pressures. Time, in short, in
which to adjust to the pressures that are here, so that
when we leave we will be able better to face new ones.
Then, space: room to grow, by experimenting with
friendships one might not otherwise make, room for
failure, recouping, and advancement.
Most of all, there is time and space in which to be
an individual, without poses, false conformities, com-
promises with principle lj

John-John saluting. I think those few days will stay
with me longer than any others this year. They stand
out in vivid contrast to the hazy panorama of the year.

l I just walked from Mead to the library without see-
ing a single person. It's the day after exams. Although
I still feel as though I should be studying instead of
wasting time, the academic atmosphere has somehow
mysteriously disappeared. The beautiful campus re-
mains, but it is no longer an 'facademic communityu-
just a beautiful campus. It's weird how fast it all
changes. Just last night at this time I was feeling so
tense waiting to go into my last exam that the girls
leaving, the cars, the parents, the boxes in the halls, all
seemed far away and not concerned with me. After the
exam I ran back ready to celebrate at last. But it was
too late-all of my friends had gone. Mt. Holyoke is
nothing without the others Q

"What am l going to do?" In this perspective, we start to believe that we're
outgrowing much of this narrow, redundant life. We are taught to look beyond,
and then beyond that again, ever widening the context of thought until, as a
natural consequence, this place itself seems small, but it has fulfilled its function,
and at the same time weaned us gently away Q
