He was also the god of good beginnings, since the beginning of an undertaking has much influence on its success. He was represented as having two faces, one of youth or of beginning, the other of age or of ending. One door of his temple looked to the east where day begins, the other to the west where day ends. It is significant that these two aspects of beginning and ending were incorporated in the same deity, exemplifying the inseparable relationship of past and future. Mencius has said that " education is the great and constant need of all minds and most especially of the mind of him who would lead others. " Our beginning, four years ago, was directed towards securing this education. Now, at the end, like Janus, we turn the other way and look back to take the measure of the past. It has been devoted to a specialized training to make us good teachers, and to a broader education to make us men and women of integrity. Our future lies in educating others, and equally important, in the continued or constant education of ourselves that we be capable of this leadership. The education we have received and will continue to receive must inevitably influence directly those whom we lead. This influence will be as effective as the past which it reflects, inspiring as it will, leadership for the future. Our President " We look before and after And pine for what is not; Our sincerest laughter With some pain is fraught Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought! " Shelley has thus poetically expressed, I hope, your feelings and mine, at the approach of commencement. I have a paternal feeling toward the Class of 1961, a mixed emotion of pride and sorrow, pride in the quality of your response to academic challenge, sorrow in the coming separation when, intellectually mature, you leave. May I, in loco parentis, wish all of you success and happiness in your future role in life , whatever it may be. May the clouds of life be big with mercy and break in blessings on your head. -?4 CO. To You. We Dedicate This Book " Those who have torches will pass them on to others " Plato The Class of 1961 takes great pride in dedicating this yearbook to an advisor of unusual merit, Dr. Patricia Goler. Over the past four years, she has been for each of us a teacher in the ancient and truest sense of the word. Her demanding and dedicated scholarship has won our highest respect, while her sincerity and genuine friendship have warranted both our affection and our admiration. Few are given that indefinable, selfless quality that marks a teacher with distinction. This, Dr. Goler possesses to a remarkable degree. With deepest gratitude, we dedicate- our yearbook to her. Our Advisor Throughout the ages of history as men have stood at the cross- roads, they have invoked their deities. Well might one imagine the Roman youth, have completed his studies and apprenticeship as he departed from Rome to assume his duties in Gaul, invoking the blessings of Janus: " O Janus, praeses custosque collegii portarum, vobis relictis, hanc solam vitam quam novimus derelinquimus, dirigas clientes in semitis bonorum morum justitiaeque. " Or the medieval cleric as he contemplates his commencement from the University of Paris might well pray: " Omnipotens sempiterne Deus fac nos Tibi per vitam ita servire ut homines Te clarius cognoscant, carius ament, propius sequantur. " You, also, stand at the threshold - about to enter a new way of life Well might your supplication be " That all my actions may be directed to Thee and by Thy assistance be brought to a successful conclusion. " Your college days are past, and if there have been hardships and disappointments through these years, they must now give way to your ultimate triumph. My own reaction to our association has been characterized by pride in your academic achievements, admiration of your spirit, respect for your integrity, joy in your success, love of your humanity, and perhaps a tinge of melancholy which must inevitably be present when friends say farewell. Civilization awaits you; mankind needs you; you CAN change the world! " Area et thesaurus meus estis. Ipsi vos expend ite ut bene agatis. " ZCs i 1 43L You have selected as your unpaid sponsor, J anus, the porter who is described as holding a staff in his right hand and a key or keys in his left. Opening doors and promoting initiative will be two of your most responsible tasks in the years which lie ahead. May you have the happiness that such guidance will bring r, ■ , „ , j c., .■ to each of you who serve as humble porters. Chairman of Professional Education ,,..„.,, ' Marguerite L. Gourville MARGUERITE L. GOURVILLE B.S.Ed., Marywood College A.M., Boston University Director of Student Teaching and Placement Can you, like Janus, manage to look before you and behind you at the same time? In the eagerness of youth you look ahead. You are anxious to go beyond the threshold to be yourself in the particular place that you have selected. That is as it should be. Do take the best of what we gave you, with you. It is to be hoped that while you were here you accumulated not only knowledge but, more important, scholarly ways which enable you to enrich the lives of the children you will teach. This college has helped you to develop attitudes, tastes, appreciations and standards of excellence; look back and reflect on these occasionally. Be a dedicated teacher. Bring honor to yourself and your college. Come back often. We on this side of the threshold will look forward to your return. Mary E. McGauvran DR. MARY E. McGAUVRAN B.S.Ed., State College at Lowell Ed.M., Ed.D., Boston University Dean of Women Director of Admissions DR. EDWARD F. GILDAY A.B., A.M., New York University D.Mus.A., Boston University Chairman of Music Education Give your closest attention to the second face of Janus — the one depicting old age. Some day you, too, will wear such a face. What will it show — cynicism, greed, bitterness, or wisdom, genorosity, and tranquility? The record of your life will be there for all to read. Each day you write a page of that record. Edward Gilday Throughout the land today teachers and others ask them- selves the question " What can I do for my country? " To you it is more specific and thus easier to answer. The question becomes rather " What can I do for the children entrusted to me? " During the past four years at your college you have been told that the only answer is to give yourself without any reservation to serve our youth. This must be the assign- ment you place for yourself every day. Thus from the moment of graduation until the end of your time you never face confusion in your life objective. John J. Fisher DR.

Newman Club 1-4; Service Club 3-4; 46 Freshmen As " pea-green " freshmen, 180 of us " reported for duty " on September 6, 1960, to undergo a week of rigid intelligence tests and voice testings to see if a summ- er vacation had impaired our chances of making a 2.0 in college. The next week we attended our first classes and were entertained at a pic- nic on Presidents Hall grounds by our Big Sister Class, the Class of ' 62. The weeks flew by and in no time mid-terms and warnings were upon us. Meanwhile many had joined the various clubs on campus and learned how to write term papers. After a very welcome Christmas vaca- tion we returned to face semester finals and got our first taste of real college cramming. A week later, at registration, 165 were left to launch another semester of study. President Vice President Treasurer George Perrone Thomas Gallagher Marie Fiorino Secretarv Patricia Foley Advisor: Prof. Walter Copley 48 Class of 1964 Sophomores The biggest event of the year for sophomores was the Senior - Sophomore party which was a festive Spaghetti Supper. The effort put forward to please our big brothers and sisters was genuinely appreciated. Everyone enjoyed the atmospherically decorated cafeteria and relished the " best food " they had ever eaten. Another outstanding program on our list of activities was the Orphan ' s Christmas Party which was given jointly by the senior and sophomore classes. Each child received at least three or four gifts and enjoyed a party lunch. But we still wonder if perhaps we did not enjoy ourselves the more in sharing the Christmas happiness of these children. President Vice President Treasurer Secretary Library Representative Lecture Chairman Ronald Godfrey Patricia Gawlinski Margaret Inglis Georgette Fournier Rosemarie Carro Pauline King Advisor: Prof. Prentiss Sheperd 50 Juniors On the night of October 28, I960, an aura of delightful mystery permeated the Lowell State College gymnasium. The occasion was the annual Masquerade Ball sponsored by the Class of ' 62. The many ingenious masquer aders contributed to the gaiety and success of the affair. Not only were prizes awarded for outstanding costumes, but everyone received a genuine pumpkin. The Class of 1962 with the Class of 1963 sponsored the annual Christmas Party for the orphans from the Children ' s Home. The delight and glee in the eyes of these children as they opened their gifts from Santa, and their humble gratitude, assured everyone of the party ' s success. To help students get re-acquainted after the long Christ- mas recess the Class of ' 62 held a skating party at one of the local lakes on Registration Day, January 3, 1961. On Friday, April 21, 1961, the Junior Prom was held at the Spray Cliff Hotel in Marblehead.

The Knoll While striving for a common goal, the class of 1961 has passed along similar paths for four years. Standing as we are at the threshold and viewing the activities of the past four years, the Knoll staff, with the assistance of willing members of the senior class, has attempted to capture in words and pictures the essence of our college life.

This award winning newspaper is sponsored by the. Student Government Association. A journalism workshop designed to express student opinion while promoting school spirit, the CAMPUS STAR acts as a liaison officer among faculty, students, administra- tion, and campus organizations. It has acted as a check on student government and thereby has stimulated interest in student government. The CAMPUS STAR is a member of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and of the University Press Service. At the annual Banquet and Award night Editor-in-chief Charles Mitsakos was awarded the Christine Kane Award for " outstanding service to the Campus Star. " Alan Rain and Gus Reusch were awarded the Campus Star Awards for newswriting and feature writing, respectively. The CAMPUS STAR was awarded a first place award by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association in its thirty -seventh annual competition this year.

In the accomplishment of this purpose, the group will endeavor to maintain democratic principles and procedures as well as standards of good fellowship. ' The material published in Pegasus is originated entirely by the students and faculty of Lowell State College. Creative materials in the areas of art, poetry, non-fiction, fiction, photography, and music will be considered. Pegasus, published twice yearly, is the oldest magazine of its kind in the state colleges of Massachusetts and has expanded this year in addition to the literary contributions.

Burto 61 Concert Choir Music Educators National Conference Concert Band Orchestra 64 All College Chorus r a g m Laboratory Chorus The Laboratory Chorus is made up of all music majors who are not in Concert Choir; thus the group consists of those students who have average or undeveloped voices. As the name of the Chorus implies, much of the activity in rehearsals is devoted to labora- tory work for voice development. The Chorus studies a varied repertoire of choral literature ranging from Gregorian Chant to contemporary compositions. Much emphasis is placed on the differences in choral styles and thus in choral singing. The group performs for college assemblies and in public. The Chorus serves as a laboratory for student choral compositions and for student conductors. One of the basic purposes of the Laboratory Chorus is to develop students vocally to fill the vacancies which occur each year in the Concert Choir. Dr. Domenic R. Procopio Director£)f Laboratory Chorus Lab Band Jazz Club i m 66 Women ' s Recreational Organization The Women ' s Recreational Organization is one of the College ' s largest and most important organiza- tions. It emphasizes active participation of all women regardless of skill. The aim of this organization is to foster a permanent interest in recreational activi- ties, a high degree of sportsmanship, and an increased enjoyment in participation in sports. The W.R.O. program includes an active sports program which provides eleven sports for members to participate in, an administrative system which is designed for providing its members with the oppor- tunity to serve in an administering capacity, a com- petitive program in which the rival teams, STARS and COMETS, compete on special playdays for the coveted trophy, and a varied social program which includes such affairs as College Playdays, Alumnae Day, Co-Ed Capers, and the annual spring banquet. President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Carol Getchell Constance Cutrumbes Patricia Leahy Christine Carney Advisors: Dr. Elizabeth Neilson -Dr. H.Marie Garrity 67 Men ' s Athletic Association The Men ' s Athletic Association, organized eight years ago to unite the male students for the promotion of athletic and social activities, has progressed significantly in Lowell State College campus life. Over the years the Association has sponsored sports activities including varsity baseball and basketball, wrestling, football, volleyball, boxing, go lf, weight training, and handball. The social events sponsored by the organization consist of an annual Sports Night, Women ' s Recreational Organization - Men ' s Athletic Association dance, banquet, and, in addition to the above, the newly instituted annual Variety Show. Through the untiring efforts, unselfish attitudes, and team spirit of all its members, the M.A.A. has continued to prosper and carry out its responsi- bilities as a major organization at L.S.C. President i Vice President Secretary Treasurer Head of Sports Charles Keenan Augustine Reusch Earl Sharfman Charles Manousas Thomas Tobin Advisor: Prof. Ignatius Ciszek 68 Iona Fellowship Among the various activities at the Lowell State College campus, is Iona Fellowship, an organization for our Protestant students. The purpose of the Fellowship is " to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God, as revealed in Jesus Christ. To accomplish this purpose, we, faculty members and students of various races and creeds, unite in a common loyalty to God. In this fellowship, we seek to understand the will of God through worship, study and action, in working toward a better society. Our further purpose is to invite students of all religions to meet with us. " The sponsoring body of Iona Fellowship is the Greater Lowell Council of Churches in Lowell. Membership in the Fellowship is open to any student from Lowell General Hospital School of Nursing, Lowell Technological Institute, and Lowell State College who accepts our statement of purpose. Each institution has both a faculty and spiritual advisor. Iona Fellowship meets once a month. Each meeting has a chapel service, a dinner, and a program following dinner. Chapel services are led by the ministers of the various Protestant Churches at which the meetings are held.

Its purpose is to deepen the spiritual, intel- lectual and social interests of Catholic students in secular institutions of higher learning. The first .Newman Club in this country was organized in 1893 by five medical students at the University of Penn- sylvania. Since that time the " Newman Movement " has spread to secular campuses throughout the country forming the National Newman Club Federation. Through a varied program of regular monthly meetings, including Mass, speaker, and dancing, Communion Breakfasts, a w eekend Retreat, lectures, and dances, the Newman Club fulfills its threefold purpose providing a maximum opportunity for its members to advance the spirit of Newman.

Its purpose is to foster the spiritual as well as the intellectual growth of its members and to help them achieve a fuller life through the perpetuation of Christian precepts. High light of the Club ' s current season was a Greek-American dance held in the Lowell State College gymnasium. Students from Lowell colleges along with Greater -Boston college students attended this successful affair. Among its intellectual projects, the Phanar Club has started an Eastern Orthodox reading corner in the L.S.C. library. The Phanar Club is a member of the New England Federation of College Orthodox Students. President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Advisors Charles L. Mitsakos, LSC Peter Mitsakos, LTI Stella Martakos, LSC Diane Costopoulos, LSC Prof. Leo Panas Rev. Michael Shahin Rev. John Sarantos 12 Drama Club The Drama Club has several important functions at Lowell State College. The main objective of the Club is to give all students an opportunity to gain experience in acting, stagecraft, lighting, and other backstage activities necessary to producing a play. Each school year the Club performs at least three productions and also combines its efforts and talents with the MENC in presenting the spring musical. Another important purpose of the Club is to supply the members, periodically, with the latest information on current plays, musicals, and films playing in Boston. At scheduled meetings discussion is held on plays currently seen in Boston. Techniques and skills of the plays being criticized are analyzed by members. The Club also sponsors theatre parties which allow members to see plays and musicals, in a group, at reduced rates, in Boston. The Club is open to any LSC student in good standing. President Vice-President Treasurer Secretary Advisor Lester Fleishman Martha Hyde Robert Lens Charlotte Hathaway Prof. Gardner Tillson Service Club 73 Presidents ' Hall XI y - ' i 74 c L A S s H I S T O R Y Freshman Year Well, Janus, you certainly have seen us come a long way since that first day in September of 1957, There were one hundred and fifty-seven of us then. It ' s so difficult to remember all of the wonderful things which have happened to us. Perhaps with your backward glance you can help us to recall the history of the glorious class of ' 61. Why are you grinning? Oh, of course! How could we ever forget initiation! Sheer torture! " Recite that pledge? Me? Here? Now? All of it? Then we conceded, " Praise be to the glorious Juniors whose efforts, intelligence, and sincerity have earned them their esteemed position " The rules, Janus, weren ' t they terrible? No makeup, girls; no smoking (how could they have been so cruel?); wear beanies -- with pride; carry junior ' s books if asked to do so; wear hair in braids (Impossible! My hair isn ' t longer than an inch anywhere on my head). We did it, though; all of this, and more. Confess, now; it wasn ' t so bad after all, was it? All of this did accomplish one important thing - it brought us all closer as we rapidly developed section " togetherness " . Initiation bewilderment soon faded away and we discovered that these " tyrants " weren ' t so terrible after all. They were none other than our wonderful big brothers and sisters who helped so much to orient us to college life. By this time we had been introduced to our first semester ' s subjects. We had been warned that the ad- justment would be " difficult " . This was an understatement if ever there was one. It was - " l( . How would we ever " make it " ? But let us return to brighter things. It wasn ' t long, was it, Janus, before we became organized as a class? First on the agenda was electing our first slate of officers: Bill Hersey, Gerry Cote, Nancy O ' - Leary and David Rousseau, with Dr. Goler ( " to be specific " ) as our Class Advisor. Our first function was a highly successful spaghetti supper held in January for our big sisters and bro- thers. Everyone worked together; the elementary students on the kitchen detail, and both music and ele- mentary students providing the entertainment. In March we conducted our first social event, the Shillelagh Swing, with music provided by the Joe DeLuca Combo. Our memory fails us, Janus, but didn ' t something unexpected happen that night? A blizzard? Oh, yes, but despite the hazardous conditions, our class came through, a little late at night, perhaps, but come they did to make this one of the most successful social events held on campus all season. In April we tried once again. This time, in conjunction with the sophomore class, we held the Spring Swing, which, naturally, was great. We couldn ' t fail! So far we ' ve mentioned only our own activities as a class. What about all of the other things in which we participated that year? You remember something about freshman girls groaning and moaning about aching muscles? Oh -- dawns the light, Janus. This was the time that they all took physical fitness tests for Miss Garrity, soon to become Dr. Garrity. The M.A.A. had a highly successful Sports Night, as you remember. Our " Campus Queen " candidate was lovely Maureen Donnellan who later transferred to B. C. The exhibition basketball game between the varsity and the W.R.O. was well received, and naturally many of our classmates participated in this. The M.E.N.C. sponsored the production of Finian ' s Rainbow. Again, we came through. Of a cast of forty- three, eighteen were from the class of ' 61, not to mention the many who worked behind the scenes. We ' ve always been " hams " , Janus; it just seemed to come natural. Then came the dark days of finals. This was indeed a sad time for all of us, for we knew that many of our beloved classmates would never return after this time. Fears and tears were momentarily forgotten, however, as we joined together for the traditional " Step Singing " on Senior Class Day. No prizes for us this year, but we sure gave it the old college try. 76 V £ s 1 i wTStf-B Iff i 1 Sophomore Year The summer drifted quickly by and before we knew it, September was once again upon us. Back to the books ! When we returned, we discovered that our college had expanded. Presidents Hall, formerly the Governor Allen estate, had been transformed into a beautiful dormitory for girls. It was a handsome addition, indeed. Now that we were " old pros " nothing could stop us. We got off to a great start with our new class of- ficers: Allan Lurvery, Francis Delaney, Louise Harzigian and Bill Hersey. In October we held the " Sophomore Couples Dance " . It was just beautiful. Oh, yes, Janus, the girls looked lovely and the men were more handsome than ever. Later in the year we conducted another spaghetti supper for our big sisters and brothers. The cafeteria looked like " Little Italy " and it was all quite delightful. This was also the year that we served as hosts and hostesses at the investiture of that wonderful class of ' 59. No matter what we might have forgotten about that year, Janus, I don ' t think anyone will ever forget the party for the orphans at Christmas. For months, with our class spearheading the drive, clothes were col- lected for the children, and at the party every one of the residents of the Children ' s Home received wonder- ful toys. They were so very happy and we were so very proud. It certainly is more blessed to give than to receive. We didn ' t stop here, however. In May, we conducted the " International Fling " complete with oriental music and a square dance caller. This particular dance was held for the benefit of the George Walsh Memorial Fund. Memories of this evening recall the intense heat. It must have been 200 degrees Fah- renheit in the gym, but despite this, everyone danced and do-si-doed their partners to the point of almost complete exhaustion, loving every minute of it. Again Sports Night was a huge success. This was the year that the Living Statuary act was introduced and it was a well received addition to the program. That year we elected lovely Clare McGrath as our Queen candidate. That year both Fathers ' Night and Mothers ' Night were very successful. Several of our class members romped on the stage to entertain the Dads and many of our lassies modeled the very latest fashions for the Moms. By this time, as you have gathered, we were taking the school by storm. Several of our classmates were members of the Student Council, literary geniuses on Pegasus, budding reporters on the Campus Star, and outstanding athletes on the W.R.O., and especially on the M.A.A. And, of course our talents on the stage were unsurpassed - at least we thought so. Fifteen of us took part in Bops Pops that year, and in the M.E.N.C. ' s production of Carousel we again came through. Sixteen of our classmates were in the cast and twenty-three of us helped as unsung heroes behind the scenes. The first S.G.A. formal to be held off campus was at the Yankee Doodle in Lawrence. This, too, was a memorable occasion of that school year. All too soon finals had again crept upon us. We were a little more optimistic that year but not much more. Step Singing was as pleasant as usual but we were a bit wistful for those stately seniors in front of us, who were now to face the world, had been so kind to us, their little sisters and brothers. But enough of this sentimental dribble. We have two more years to cover ! 78 mi " t • |i| Junior Year We were now the Jolly Jolly juniors. Nancy O ' Leary, Dick Hentz, Louise Harzigian and Cathy Burke were our class officers and we had a big year ahead of us. The most important thing at hand was Initiation and it was our turn to be " mean " to the poor freshmen. This lasted for only one week, though, and we immediately made amends by conducting a wiener roast in their honor at Presidents ' Hall. The weather was beautiful, the food succulent and the entertainment, as usual, superb. Many of our classmates had entered boot camp training for education: METHODS. We moaned and groaned about papers, demonstrations and talks, and burned the midnight oil to finish our units and lesson plans as we supposedly learned how to budget our time. On November 27, 1959, we conducted our most memorable social function to date, the Junior Prom. This was held at the Haverhill Country Club with music by the Rudy Gentile Combo. We never looked so mature. There ' s something about a man in a tuxedo, isn ' t there, Janus? You were concentrating on the gowns, you say? Can ' t blame you a bit; they were simply gorgeous. In November of that year our class rings arrived. We were as proud as peacocks as we flaunted the gem$ in every underclassman ' s face as proof of our superiority. Jokingly we claimed that we could now flunk out and no one would be the wiser but secretly we prayed all the while that this wouldn ' t happen. Please, not after all we ' d been through! Following mid-terms we again experienced sad times. Many, many of our classmates were to be " shipped out " into the thick of the battle; STUDENT TEACHING. Armed to the teeth, they went forth to face the enemy. However, as time marched on they discovered that things weren ' t as bad as they had been predicted; they were worse! Though the temporary loss of about half of our class dampened our spirits considerably, those of us who remained behind worked diligently to make money for our class. On March 17, we hit the jackpot by selling green carnations. We were always thinking up new ideas. Our next activity of this nature was the sale of jewelry, mugs, ash trays, china, and plastic cups. This project netted a tremendous profit and it appeared now that we would be able to plan for our senior activities without worrying about the finances, providing that all class dues could be collected. — Would Tracy and Burke ever get off our backs, always asking for money? There was no M.E.N. C. production that year as the Arts and Science building was bursting at the seams. Our college expansion program was in full swing. Sports Night was as usual a great success. This year Patty Davis represented our class as Queen candi- date. The exhibition basketball format was changed and instead of the gals vs. the guys, the varsity opposed the faculty! It was uproarious, to say the least. On Senior Class Day of that year we more than outdid ourselves. An athletic contest had been added to the program. This we won hands down. At night we entered the Step Singing contest with Brad Mitchell conducting the songs which we had so diligently composed and practiced. As a result, it was the unanimous decision of the judges that the class of ' 61 had won first prize. 80 Senior Year Where did that last summer go? In what seemed like no time at all registration day was again upon us. Something seemed wrong, Janus. Do you recall what it was? Oh yes, the name of our college had been changed. We were no longer attending Lowell State Teachers College, it was now Massachusetts State College at Lowell. It was hard to get used to this at first until we realized that we would be the first class to graduate under the new college name. We were now the " stately seniors of L.S.C. class of 1961 " and no one would ever be allowed to forget it! Our dedicated officers were Francis Delaney, Patty Davis, Sheila Barrett and Cathy Burke. Despite the fact that we were still minus half of our class who were out in the " field " , we held our class Investiture in October. For the first time we donned our scholastic regalia. This took a little getting used to as we tripped over our robes and, just as Dr. Goler warned, developed severe headaches from our tight fitting caps. Nevertheless, we sat transfixed as directed, perhaps because we were paralyzed by the fact that we had made it this far. On this occasion the names of the students who ranked in the top ten percent of our class were announced. Among these were eight elementary and three musi c students. Needless to say these are the people who have spent the greatest part of their college life studying for the required courses -- Cafeteria 1, 2, 3, and 4. As seniors we had taken over the high posts on almost all of the organizations on campus. Joe DeLuca was the president of the Student Council. In fact, all but one of the elected members of the council were seniors. Brad Mitchell headed the M.E.N.C., Charles Mitsakos was the Editor of the Campus Star, and Carol Getchell and Charles Keenan headed the W.R.O. and the M.A.A. respedtively. We had spirit to spare! At the turn of the semester we were all together once again with many more wonderful events ahead. The second floor addition to the Arts and Science building was then ready for occupancy. It housed three beautiful new laboratories for future science majors at L.S.C., offices, storage space, a seminar room and two classrooms which would serve for the time being as the long awaited student lounge. Up until the time of this writing we had had one highly successful class meeting at which time the com- mittees for our Senior Week were formulated and pretty Judy Liss was elected as our candidate for Campus Queen. Well, Janus, once again we need your aid. You ' ve helped us to recall all of the memorable events of the past and now we wish to make use of your second ability -- that of foretelling the future. What lies ahead for this great class of ' 61? The senior music recitals will be well received? That is good news for they have practiced long and hard for this. Several of our classmates have been interviewed for teaching positions and many have signed contracts? What lies in store for the rest? All of us will have contracts by June and by 1965 the minimum will be 10,000? You are optimistic, aren ' t you! Senior week is fast approaching, the most successful social events of our college career, the greatest senior week in the College ' s history? It couldn ' t be any less, Janus, not with our class spirit. We ' re so very glad to hear this, though, for we have dreamt of that week for years. What other news do you have for us? Wedding bells will be ringing soon for many of our class members? We ' re so happy for all of them. What! Each one of us will have from 25 to 40 children? Please, Janus, doesn ' t that seem like -- oh! -- you mean in our classrooms, -- Thank heavens! Well, Janus, ninety-one of us will graduate on this June 11, 1961. Where has the time gone? On that date we will sever the ties which have held us together since 1957. We have seen our college gr ow and know that a great deal more is yet to be accomplished, but somehow it is very satisfying to know that you have been a part of its history for these four years and through the long, hard struggle you have somehow managed to make it to " commencement " . This word has a challenging connotation, Janus; according to this we are just beginning. Now we pray, as we go our separate ways, that luch, success and happiness will be ours in our chosen profession and that our college will be as proud of us as we are of all of the benefits that we ' ve derived therein. In general, may time be kind to us all. Judith A.
