The history of modern progress, in art, in applied sciences, in business and in the promulgation of lofty civic ideals, is written largely around the achievements of young men and women. It is the young man or woman who most often faces life with a mind open to the best and truest things in the realm of both fact and theory. To young people all things are possible. Unhampered by tradition, unfettered by narrow prejudice and liberally endowed with energy and courage, most young men and women, from the vantage point of the early twenties, fearlessfy aspire to the highest goals and face undaunted the seemingly formidable obstacles that frequently inspire dark dismay and deep misgivings in older natures. Wherever they go, they carry the gospel of untiring endeavor and of whole-hearted accomplishment. They are the harbingers of advancement and are constantly finding new opportunities where none seemingly existed. 'I'he potential future of Home and Church and State is cradled in Youth as an entity.
I'he volume which is prefaced by this foreword is fraught with a sigpificance which is prophetic since it chronicles the early achievements, the victories and the reverses of the young men and women of the University of Arizona. In each recorded conquest or defeat there is a latent suggestion of the years to come; an augury of good or ill as applied to every individual career that is perhaps dimly forecasted in the ensuing pages. And yet, no certainty attaches to any particular future. A University is, in a sense, a miniature world wherein experience, some times bitter, some times trivial, points a moral for years ensuing and confers a monition of incalculable service. The lessons that one learns outside of book?, but under the benign influncc of one’s Alma Mater, may prove in later life a salient safeguard against threatening temptation or menacing circumstance. 'I'he value of collegiate experience may never be inscribed in any printed volume but will surely be recorded in terms of words and deeds contributing in later years to either good or evil as destiny may decree.
Geo. W. P. Hunt, Governor of Arizona.

The Class of 1915, in presenting THE DESERT, takes this method of conveying to you, kind reader, the happenings of the past year. It records the life of the Class of 1915, as well as the important events of our school, by means of pen and picture.
The greatest influence derived from a college career is friendship. The aim of THE DESERT, therefore is to preserve the memories of friends and friendships gained in our Alma Mater. We sincerely hope that as each one reads the contents of these pages, that they may realize that Friendship plays a most important part in the life of a class, the life of a College, and that the influence of this Friendship is felt most, in after life.
