XYe are concerned with the future. Most of us ala ready know what portion of the United States ot America, tor, indeed, its outlying possessionsj is ours to educate and train up in the way it should go. No small munber are making plans, immediate or remote, for a home somewhere out in the XYest. Others. for still years to come. will be found haunting the halls of learning in higher institutions. And it is well tllat we take thought for the things of tomorrow, for to dwell in the past is a symptom of age. ln September nineteen hundred nineteen, we assembled from the uttermost parts of the state and from beyond its borders. We were junior The next two terms. as junior l3's and junior Cs, we were initiated to our calling through the Training School. As Senior A's we did what no class had ever done, elected officers in the fall term, the editor and manager of the year book to serve for the year, the This others to hold office till the spring term when another eleetion took place. early organization was suggested by Mr. Spaulding of the faculty. and we recom- mend the plan to every class. As Senior Cs we have been busy with elass activities, our entertainment, our ball, juniorfSenior Day rehearsals, pageant practice for class night. plans for graduation, and, since we are what we are, graduation wardrobes. XYe wear class pins and signet rings bearing the Normal seal. The year book of this class is the most expensive ever published in this school. and, it is hoped, the best: but surely the fifteen hundred dollars and the lhousand hours of work which it cost eould do more good in the world if spent some other way. .X much more modest souvenir wuld be more fitting. How surprised one of us would be. taking a bird's-eye view over the world on every tenth anniversary of our commencement. to see what changes time had Wrought in the elass of nineteen twenty-onel llere is one a university presia- dentg that one holds a high place in the business world: another pores over the manuscript for one of many books: others scattered abroad labor to enlighten people in the dark corners of the earthg and there is one in black silk, whose granddaughter in the San jose State Teachers' College listens to her tales of lite at the old Normal of her time. lYho can toretell what will come ot the makers of the organdie rainbow which brightened the quad on the afternoon of the twenty-third of june, nine- teen hundred twenty-one? And what changes will occur in the buildings! liven the wood and stone will not remain as they are. Ours is the last class which sat in the old assembly hall, and the first whose voices were heard in the new. Ours is President Kemps first graduating class and the last class to re- ceive diplomas from the San jose State Normal School. May that class be true to the Gold and Vvhitez and when they shall have reached the age ot our greatest alumnus, may they also be able to refer to the time spent with their Alma Mater as two ot the happiest years of their lives.
