£.y xiiJJtXAMBLER CAMPUS of
TEMPLE UNIVERSITYTO EDUCATION: The Pursuit of Truth
WITH APPRECIATION TO DR. FOY
To the Class of 1961
Change, and somewhat explosive growth have been a normal part of your Ambler existence. Probably this has been exciting, annoying, stimulating or frustrating at times, but you have weathered it all very well. For the first time in the institution’s existence, we have had Sophomores in the liberal arts, and an almost eqUal distribution of men and women students. For the first time. Ambler students will take part in the University’s impressive Commencement Exercises at Convention Hall in Philadelphia.
As you leave Ambler, I hope you will take with you an affection for the college which gave you your start and a desire to support it in the future. I extend to you my warm personal wishes for your success and happiness in the years ahead. May your lives be filled with health, courage, and service to others; and may God bless you!
To each member of the class of 1961, I send my deepest wish for your progress and happiness. You have won a place in our Ambler family. As you think back on Ambler scenes, may you remember the trees, steadfast in purpose, yet gracefully adapting to a changing climate, and ever growing.

STUDENT COUNCIL RIDING GROUP
The student government represents Ambler Campus through the participation of its delegate on the Temple University Student Council. It handles problems of student discipline and acts as liaison between the student body and the administration. This year’s Council laid the foundations of constitutional and representative student government at Ambler Campus.
This year has been one of the most fruitful for the Riding Group. The members organized a joint show with The First Philadelphia Troop, which led to a better showing at the annual Ambler Campus Horse Show in the spring. To those interested in Horse Husbandry the Riding Group has been an especially worthwhile activity.

SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB
For the purpose of serving our community, the Social Service Club has yearly collected food and gifts for a needy family for Thanksgiving and Christmas. One of its main activities, and a very rewarding one, is assisting Mrs. Bush-Brown with the planting of flower boxes for the Neighborhood Garden Association.
Social events finally got into full swing about Thanksgiving time. The ••Sleigh-ride,” the annual Christmas dance, was the first major, successful fete for the committee. Throughout the remainder of the year socials were planned for weekends: Gay Twenties, Shipwrecks, Fireside gatherings, etc., accompanied with diversified music, all added up to fun and happy times at Ambler.
