FOREWORD IN THIS, the 1918 Volume of the BLUE AND GOLD, it has been our utmost aim to consolidate into as few pages as pos- sible a record of the past college year a record, that we, who are Juniors now, may keep and cherish more and more as the years go by, which may be refer red to in after life as a true re- minder of the fading reminiscences of our college days. That it is not a complete record we have no doubt. True it is, that there are many incidents, personalities, indeed names which do not even appear on these pages. On the other hand, it may be that too much lead or copper has been expended upon some happening- some individual or his or her name. If anyone has been offended by either the former or the latter, we beg forgiveness. In gathering together the material which has gone to make up this volume we have realized that there is no end to the matter, both printed and half-toned which might be forced in between these covers. We have further realized that a book of this kind may be easily and unknowingly overdone, and supersaturated with uninteresting and irrelevant material, thus evading the pri- mary purpose for which it was intended that is, a record of the college year. Consequently, we have endeavored to be as con- cise as possible, eliminating those things which have appeared as extraneous. If we have but assembled a partial mass of material which has been gleaned from the happenings of the past college year and have presented them in an interesting and coherent manner, then our efforts have not been in vain. We sincerely hope that our successes may serve as an aid and our mistakes as a warning to the editors who will have in their hands the fates of the Blue and Golds which are to follow in the future.
