"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon
them" . . . Little did Shakespeare know of Texas Tech when he made this prophecy, but
a prophecy it was. Tech was born great in the hearts and ideals of the founders and
achieved greatness through the practicality and hard work of those who followed.
This year found greatness thrust upon Tech. With an unprecedented enrollment,
crowded living conditions, crowded classrooms, and insufficient facilities of every kind, the
old Tech spirit came through, shall we say, magnificently to overcome the difficulties.
So to you who, despite all the annoyances and inconveniences, have with a few
laughs and a lot of cooperation made this year the greatest yet at Texas Tech fr -to you
we gratefully dedicate this l947 LA VENTANA.

Texas Tech f a world complete, bordered by the Avenue, Nineteenth, and
hell's forty acres. Here, from the outside world, comes the sound of history being
made. Forces are clashing, war is still rumbling on the horizons, cities are
rioting and economic structures are crashing. Techsans read about all this in the
few newspapers that penetrate the campus, but somehow it seems strangely re-
mote ee something that is happening in another universe. So for a briet while
here on Tech campus, wars and rumors of wars compete with things like who is
going to be the number one beauty, or the head cheerleader, or winner oi the
game, or how to manage coke dates on a veteran's subsistence. These are the
important things, the things that matter tor the short, happy stay in the college
And these are the things that the LA VENTANA staii has attempted to
record on these pages, a resume ot all the import-ant "international" happenings,
the "universally" known personages, and the "cosmopolitan" society.
Here, we hope, are memories oi what happened in our world this year, put
down in black and white. lt is our wish, when you leave Tech and are weary
oi the other world, that you can take this book, turn the pages, and relive the
careiree and wonderful days you spent in peaceiul and isolated security at
