K. E. Norris, M.A., Ph. D. Principal Sir George Williams College Another Graduating Class!! It seems impossible!! But it serves to emphasize the inevitable fact that the College is growing older, that it is no longer a new phenomenon in the Canadian Educational scene, and that the body of its Alumni is increasing in size and importance. Like all its predecessors, this yearls graduating class is the largest in the history of the College. It is a far cry from the present class of more than 200 people to the two men who were first to receive the College's degrees in the fall of 1936. One approaches the idea of the graduation of a new class with mixed feelings of pleasure and regret - pleasure that this group of fine young people are about to have their efforts re- warded and are reaching, not the end of the trail, but another milestone along the wayg regret that the College, which has learned to depend upon them for undergraduate leadership and tone, must now get along without them. The list of this year's graduates includes an imposing array of those who have meant a great deal to Sir George Williams College in recent years, and who have contributed much to the life of the student body during their terms as undergraduates. To them, and to all members of the class, I offer congratulations and best wishes on behalf of the Board of Governors and the Faculty. fp was K. E. Norris Principal.

EDITORIAL... . So we are now considered educated. At least in the formal sense we may suppose this to be true if we are to consider the acquisition ofa Bachelor's degree as the final achievement of the educational process. And for all purposes society,or popular opinion, may consider that such an accomplishment merits recognition of the individual as an educated person. But we cannot be satisfied with any such narrow definition of education. The educational philo- sophy to which we have been recently exposed will not permit us to accept such a concept. We know that education is a continuing process that does not stop at the end of a particular period. Convocation '50 is not a stop, then, but merely a pause. A time for reflection and assessment before progressing further. Despite whether some of us may go on to higher degrees, or abandon for- mal education at this point, we must of necessity continue with our own individual educational process. To stop now would be to deny the value of the past years. Apart from any vocational skill we may have acquired during undergraduate years, our college training has provided us with some tools to aid in understanding the social, economic, political, physical, and spiritual basis of the modern world. It should also have made us aware of some of the basic problems that confront our materialistic society. And wary of, attempts of evasion or dismissal, and skeptical of some of the widely held popular opin- ions regarding them.

'T J ' 1 Address by Murray B. Spiegal at the Convocation May 30. 1959 Mr Ghairman, Mr. Principal, Honoured Guest, Meriibers ofthe Board of Governors and Faculty, Ladies and Gentlemen. Tonight I find myself in a very privileged position, for to me has fallen the task of saying goodbye to Sir George Williaiiis College on behalf of this year's graduating class. The solemnity of the occasion bears testimony to its importance, for tonight we, of the graduating class, have reached the end of another stage in our progress. With the completion of each such stage we must look back, recall and evaluate so that in the light of the past, we may better foresee the future. Marty of us first came to Sir George for what we then termed a higher education. The very meaning which we attached to this term was a narrow and limited one. Most of us then conceived of education as that which ive glean from text books and our esteemed professors, but tonight, as we look back, we receive a better understanding, a clearer conception of this term, tonight we realize that the word education means much more than the bookf learning we receive at college. It includes the many values, the ideals and the attitudes which are developed as a result of our association with our fellow students. We have learned much since we first entered the narrow confines of this great institution. The very essence of its philosophies have become a part of ourselves. Proud that we were of an institution whose tenets are steeped in toleration, understanding, and progress, we proceeded to adopt these attitudes and develop these views. Students of many ideologies, of diff ferent races, and of different religions have learned to live together in mutual respect and admiration, have learned to disagree yet not be disagreeable. We are proud ofthe warm spirit of friendliness that permeates our halls, finds its way into our classrooms, and accompanies us on our many student activities. A spirit that binds student to student, professor to professor, and student to professor, when our days at college are but a memory we will still retain a vivid picture of these friendly relationships. Perhaps some of you remember the mass protest meeting last year to speak out against the college's refusal to allow a certain political speaker to address a college audience. 'To some of you the crowded room of protesting and excited students may have stood out as a symbol of a free and demof cratic student body asserting its rights to hear and evaluate whatever political opinion they wished to listen to. To me that occasion holds other memories. I shall never forget the two senior members of the faculty who, amidst the excitement of the meeting, quietly slipped into the crowded room, and finding all the seats occupied, unhesitatingly sat down on the floor. 'To me that was a symbol.
