t ,v,1?,, t "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 world. 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 Texas Tech.
