THE BIRTH OF A MABIAN A play-by-play description of a fiasco OR as long as one can remember, June has been the month when the senior class of University School proudly gave birth to a bouncing baby yearbook traditionally labeled the Mabian. One year impatient subscribers murmured menacing intimations of mob violence because the book was not issued until the day after graduation. Another year black crepe paper adorned the window of Mr. Logsdonfs office because it was rumored that the Mabian Board might not make a profit. Still another yearbook poignantly lamented the devastation wrought by front office censorship in a limeric depict- ing the cheerless obscurity of jokes sentenced to oblivion by the humorless blue pencil. All these minor peccadillos and triHing grievances are remote and in- significant in the eyes of this year's staff, however, because the class of forty-nine has shattered traditions, undergone privations, and withstood crises undreamed- of in the wildest imaginations of our predecessors. One of our instructors, himself a splendid illustration of this aphorism, observed that sometimes mistakes are our best teachers. If this be the case, we who have participated in preparing this book beyond a doubt have earned our Ph.D.'s. The most peculiar combination of aptitudes and inclinations ever assembled for what was ostensibly a single purpose embarked virtually unarmed into the bewildering world of publication. It is impossible to say whether our operations were more bizarre before or after our faculty advisor abruptly took his leave, but while he was with us, we felt that he too was a part of our brave new experiment in educated ignorance. After months of grinding out features and biographies designed to capture the essence of our class' personality and character, we were visited by that inevitable incubus to all creative thinkers who try to preserve the truth for posterityecensorship! Like the paragon de- lineated in Mr. Kipling's poem, we were forced to Ustart again at our beginnings, and never breathe a word about our loss', and, all enthusiasm spent in our initial endeavor, "stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools.', Thus the ex- purgated edition, a pale and wispy shade of the original, crept painfully toward completion. But wait! The vagaries of genius hovered ofer, for our cartoonist, whose endeavors he constantly affirmed were the backbone of our book, awaited inspiration as a husband awaits the stork, similarities existing in both the dura- tion of expectance and the anxiety of those involved. Laboring far into the summer, sacrificing hours which might have been spent behind a lawn mower or on similar summertime larks, Chuck Glass toiled to consummate his magnum opus. While Editor Dave Cowan anxiously gnawed his nails from Michigan to California, the wheels of creation slowly ground their golden art. The somewhat anomalous bright spot in our singular record has been the business staff of our yearbook, which happily operated with efficiency and profit. Dick Wahl and John Gilliam, aided substantially if anonymously by subordinate underclassmen, proceeded with staid deliberation, in startling con- trast to the perfunctory brilliance of the editorial department. And now, as naturefs scene is touched with signs of autumn, as crisp, golden leaves waft contentedly toward their winterfs bed close to Mother Earth, as wide-eyed schoolboys pack their duffles and embark upon exciting new lives in schools and colleges throughout the land, the long-expected has come, and our little book, the product of young minds working steadfastly and harmoniously toward a single goal, awaits your perusal.
