the "best years of Our
lives." The spirit of NU in '48 was char-
acterized by a greater interest in the aff21iI'S Of
the world and a determination on the part of
the studentsfor a brighter future in which they

occasion to glance through it, we, the staff,
are in hopes it will help recall your years at
