In days of old, so we are told, Knights lived in castles, guarded by a wide, deep moat of fetid water, entered by a portcullis or drawbridge which was a welcome mat only for one's friends. Here in the castle the future Knight would be reared for a time. The young boy would grow to graceful manhood under the personal care of his father and with the help of a skillful tutor, often a resi- dent priest who would teach him the laws and love of God along with the polite learning of the languages and arts. When the boy was old enough, he would live in the house of some other lord as page, learning how to conduct himself in polite society. Then fol- lowed a military training in arms and horsemanship during which he was called a squire. Finally, after years of training and a whole night spent before the Blessed Sacrament in prayer, the young squire was made a Knight. Knightly conduct, or chivalry, called for the observance and enforcement of laws, and the protection of the weak and oppressed. But it was especially in defending him- self and in enlarging his domains that the Knight showed his legendary boldness. ln childhood days we were baptized. In a Christian family, secured by parental love from the influences of evil, we grew up to young manhood. Having received the Sacrament of Confirmation, we knew we were to be Christ's soldiers, so we began our intel- lectual apprenticeship at our Knight school, St. Mel. Sophomore pages, we even learned something of military tactics as R.O.T.C. cadets. As iuniors, we moved to the Main Building as squires. Com- pleting our studies now, and especially prepared to live a Christian life in a world which knows little of our gallant chivalry, each of us of the Class of 1950 comes forth to be dubbed .14 Ar Ckridf
