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.

(Atlanta, Cleorgia OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT The theme of this year ' s Yamacraw recalls the lines of Walt Whitman: ' We have watch ' d the seasons dispensing themselves, and passing on, We have said. Why should not a man or woman do as much as the seasons, and effuse as much? " We dwell a while in every city and town; We pass through Canada, the north ' cast, the vast valley of the Mississippi, and the Southern States; We confer on equal terms with each of the States, We make trial of ourselves, and invite men and women to hear; We say to ourselves. Remember, fear not, be candid, promulge the body and the Soul; DweU a while and pass on, be copious, temperate, chaste, magnetic. And what you effuse may then return as the seasons return, And may be just £is much as the seasons. " The seasons are symbols not only of our growth in time, but our gifts to the enrichment of time. In this setting, the college experience may be a movement from naivete to sophistication, from prejudice to tolerance, from dogma to a search for truth, and from childish fears to mature confidence. These are the seasdns of change and beauty from the " winter of our discontent " to the time of rich harvests of maturity. The passing of a year, or of a four ' year college experience, is more than the passing of time. It is marked by change. And it is this change that gives significance to time. If this change is to have the fullest value, it must be more than mere observation. It must be an interaction with events. Then, " what you effuse may then return as the seasons return, and may be just as much as the seasons. "
