limit 1^ Second, when we enter college we lose to a certain extent our individuality and l)ecome part of something bigger. Our connection with Sweet Briar begins with our freshman year and lasts, without a break, until our death. Our conduct is no longer our concern alone, because from now on we are a part of Sweet Briar. We represent Sweet Briar to the outside world. How can one judge a college except by the individuals which compose it? After graduation you will find that you are still " Sweet Briar " to the people you meet, for they invariably find out your Alma Mater and judge your college according to your acts. This throws an immense responsibility on all of us. Oiu- conduct must never be such as might reflect on the fair name of Sweet Briar. Let us do nothing unworthy of our Alma Mater. In the third place, we, the Alumns, would express our appre- ciation and thanks to the Sweet Briar students who have dedicated this Briar Patch to us. Please accept our heart-felt " Thank you. " Re- member that when you leave the college walls we will be standing ready to welcome you into our Association; ready and waiting for suggestions and ideas from you as to how to make Sweet Briar and the Alunma? Association better. " Non mortuae salutamus " — and we ask that you join us in effort and prayer for Sweet Briar, so that the words of the Sweet Briar song may be fully realized : " Sweet Briar, Sweet Briar, we sing to thee. May thy foundations ever be Strong as the hills, thy purity That of thy rose. Sweet Briar. " M. R. Martin, ' 18.

HIM^^^^irE^ Co tf)e ^Voeet iSriar ^tutients A GREETING FROM THE ALUMNJE ORITUR AE salutamus, " ice, about to die, salute you, is usually the topic sentence of a message from the Senior Class to its Alma Mater. A message from the Alumnffi could find no more fitting text than, " non mortuae salutamus, " we, not having died, salute you. For a graduate, college life does not end when she receives her diploma. Love and loyalty to her Alma Mater are still vital forces in her life. There are several things that the Alumnfe would say to their little sisters. First of all, you will find that when you leave college, college does not leave you. Everything that you do or see is consciously or uncon- sciously compared with Sweet Briar or the things or people at Sweet Briar. Sweet Briar becomes your standard of value. The places you see are all more or less beautiful than Sweet Briar (let me say that they are invariably less beautiful) ; the books you read are liked or disliked according to the opinions you formed at Sweet Briar; new friends are compared with college friends ; the code of ethics influenced by the Student Government Association, by the sportsman-like spirit of athletics, by the Y. W. C. A., and by the Sunday services at Sweet Briar, remains your guide throughout life. Since these things are true — and they are true, for I speak from experience — it becomes the solemn duty and privilege of graduates and undergraduates to make Sweet Briar as high and true and pure as possible. We nuist have a high standard of value. Fortunately, because of the devoted work of those who have gone before, both students and faculty. Sweet Briar has been and is a worthy mother. But a college is not made once and for all. Each year it goes forward or back. We must see that Sweet Briar goes forward.
