tttUcrftttg FOREWORD The splendor of the sun .... Radiating its glory and its power; Moving untamingly through its infinite cycle: Sunrise, sunset . . . night, darkness. Man ' s progress through life is similar. His sunrise — the beginning, the penod In which he prepares to face the future, To challenge the world and those obstacles Which confront him in his search for the RIGHT, The GOOD. Grou ' th, too, has its influence. By this process man has the ability to Adapt both physically and mentally to his Environment, to become a unique individual. An entity in his own being. Sunset — ithe culmination of growth and preparation. The time to use what he has learned and apply it to life. This is the measure of man ' s achievement — not superfluous Things which bring him temporary recognition, but the Ability to take what he has learned and skillfully Apply It to life, to make the best use of his potential Qualities and virtues in order to make himself a Successful being. The editor and his staff submit this book as a pictorial representation of individual preparation, growth and achievement at Oglethorpe — processes which, it is hoped, will prepare each individual to face the future, to accept the fact that he is only on the threshold of life in which success or failure will be of his own making.

Because we strive to create a yearbook with the same enthusiastic approach to imaginative thinking that prompts Oglethorpe to inspire eager minds to active endeavor, we wish to dedicate our efforts to a man whose own enthusiasm and eagerness has guided our preparation, contributed to our GROWTH, and encouraged our achievements. The 1962 Yamacraw, therefore, is dedicated to . . . " POP " CROW " Pop " has said, " To me Oglethorpe means an ideal environment for education-freedom, oppor ' tunity, and a spirit of responsibihty. " Through his work as teacher and counselor, " Pop " has made the Oglethorpe environment more than an ideal; it is an actual experiment in learning. He has urged the students of Oglethorpe to digest knowledge and to transform it into energy. " Pop " said, " I would hope to contribute to the philosophy that knowledge is simply a tool of life ' s trade. " He has certainly made such a contribution. We, who are now in the process of reach ' ing for the tools with which to shape our lives, do gratefully and affectionately acknowledge " Pop " Crow as a valuable teacher and a sincere friend. ' Mom " and " Pop " Crow
