SPRING ! Spring! Just the word suggests wee buds, warm winds, questioning cries of birds; all of this added to the shouts and game of Youth. Tender buds peep shyly at the world outside and birds fly gleefully from branch to branch. A spring morning is sweet and joyous, on whose soft wind the merry songs of birds float mingled with the fresh fragrance of new grass and flowers. Springtime is love-time, dream-time and time of laughter. Each tiny fairy in each flower peeps its dainty head from the heart of its home, spreads its rainbow wings and flies from flower to flower to give the happy cry of Spring to all. The sky is a tender, smiling blue — not laughing yet. It i ' s too shy for that, you see — -a laughing sky belongs to summer time, but spring-time is too young. The forest brooks flow with purling, bubbling sound, singing in bell-like tones their song of spring. The trees in their gay green dresses, like children who have tired of their finery, are happy to be free from their glitter- ing, restrained winter garments. Oh, Spring, with your life, love, joy, and laughter, who can resist you? A bubble of your fountain rises joyously in the golden, springtime sunlight. Even the stars are more friendly and the moon less mournful when Spring-time sounds her clarion! [ 66 ]

ESSAY ON IMAGINATION Imagination is that part of the mind divided apart from intuition, memory and reason. Like intuition it is given par- tially, unlike memory it requires no former occurrence for exist- ence, and like reason, can be developed for both pleasure and necessity. Like most all else, imagination has its advantages and disadvantages. Taken separately perhaps the former over- balances the latter. As a divine gift to poets it has given men pleasure and recreation through its wondrous power of beauty conception or beauty beyond ordinary conception. As an in- centive to explorers it has lead them on to lands before unseen by man. As a hope to inventors it has given us both comfort and convenience. As an instigator to liberators it has produced freedom, and as result of its combination with reason success has followed. To weakened minds it has brought visions of empire, conquest and self glorification, which in reality means downfall. To idealists it has brought dreams which unhappily ended in disappointment. To suspicion it has added misunder- standing, anger and hate. Its combination with evil results in crime. Balance the good with the bad and most assuredly the result is favorable for the former. Question yourself, where would be music, art, literature, comfort and achievement without their brother “imagination.” Margaret Ewing Dyer, ’26. [ 65 ]

When you ' re walking down the highway of life, Your clothes all ragged and thin, Don ' t get disheartened and ruin your sold, For there ' s another chance to begin. For just as I look down the highway of life, I see the turn of the curve, A nd I see the men who have found success, A nd the men who have lost their nerve. Don ' t think of the days gone by, Of the happy days you spent; Don ' t think of those big shining dollars, When you ' re down to your last red cent. Just look into the future and say you ' ll See it through — Let nothing cross your pathway that you Won ' t try to do. If you have a thing to say, say it — Do not hesitate; If you have an enemy like him — Forget the word called hate. But above all things help your fellowmen, And those who are in need, For if you want to do a noble thing there Is no higher deed. And you have read in the Good Book just What it means to sin — A nd the Lord is in the heart of those who Love their fellowmen. Foy Aust, ’29. [ 67 ]
