THE year 1940 marks the completion of fifty years of service on the part of the Plattsburgh State Normal School. It is fitting that the CARDINAL should commemorate, at this half century milestone, the heritage, the traditions and the realized aspirations of those who have builded before us. During the lifetime of the school, students and alumni have observed and participated in the profound changes which have occurred in American life. They have seen America transform itself from a society predominantly agricultural to the greatest industrial nation of all times. They have contributed to the creation of a unified nation whose crucible has molded a new world from all the races of the earth. Through all of this change they have helped to preserve, often amid impending chaos, the constitutional guarantee of opportunity and freedom within the law. No school can live apart from the people whom it serves, and it is a part of our heritage that the founders, the students, alumni and faculty have held steadfast to the trust imposed upon them to serve all of the people. Our school is a school of the people, established through their legislature and preserved by its guarantee. It is an expression of the belief of our citizens that only through free schools and the preparation of teachers by the state for these schools can our democracy endure. Our love and pride in our Alma Mater comes from our realization that from our halls have gone men and women worthy of the high trust placed in them as leaders and builders of a great nation. No one could know our present student groups without sensing that all is well with our heritage and our future. Selected as they arc this year from forty-one counties in our State, they represent the heart, the intelligence and the character that is America. Living in a world so much of which is nearer chaos than at any period during this half century, we face our future unafraid, firm in the belief that upon the foundation which has been so securely laid, we shall build even better toward the greater America of tomorrow Charli-s C. Ward. Principal. |2 -
