However, acting on the advise of several committees he had set up to evaluate the present student center operations, he later announced that the new building would be opened during winter quarter Students, returning to the college in January, found that the new building was now open for use and that a bus serv- ice had been set up to transport them to the building, located on the west side of the campus. Along with his announcements of use of the food service center, Dr. Townsend announced his plans for the utilization of the Student Center. Besides housing several student activities offices and a snack bar, the President said that feasible plans had been made to move the post office and bookstore into the student center.

You have conscientiously pursued undergraduate and graduate studies at West Georgia College, fulfilling academic requirements for the degrees established at this College. Your work has been significant, not only to yourselves but to society generally. It is with pride and congratulations that I turn now to the conferral ceremonies. Because you have earned your degrees, you also have our respect. In many ways the noblest and most exacting professional life lies before those of you receiving education degrees. For you have selected the teaching of children or the ministering to those who are troubled in our society. All people are pre- cious but infinitely more important to us all is the learning experience of our children for therein lies the future of our society and the health to those uncer- tain about the meaning of their lives for therein lies our social salvation. Be understanding but above all conduct yourselves in the highest professional sense: in your care will be our heritage. To the graduate students, you have now attained another mile-stone in your edu- cation. This experience will have added new dimensions to your understanding, clear insights, and hopefully a greater sense of your worth to society. Whatever your pro- fessional commitment, be aware that this society increasingly depends upon educated men and women to lead it. Be cognizant of that fact and know that all knowledge serves us best when it is accompanied by humility and love. To those of you who have studied in the arts, philosophy, the natural sciences, literature, or the social and behavioral sciences, these endeavors will have sharp- ened your social conscience and broadened your understanding. You have followed in the footsteps of many generations to know more about the human condition, how socie- ties have lived and died, how cultures have blossomed and developed. Be aware that you now have begun the lifelong adventure of learning and understanding some of the deepest and most complex concerns of mankind: the quest of us all to find our purpose or meaning in time and place. To the business graduates, you have chosen to prepare for responsibilities in the world of business or to teach others for those responsibilities. This Republic has always depended heavily upon commerce and industry for its strength and vision. Be aware that you must combine knowledge with moral and ethical conduct if you are to serve that world effectively. Best wishes to each of you in your endeavors. rincerely, - - " Maurice K.

No doubt, this yearbook will have its short- comings and not everyone will like it. We, ourselves, even now see things we could have done to make this a better book. However, an honest effort was made by the people involved in the book ' s creation. Even with its shortcomings, we are proud of the work we have done here because fac- ing many dilemmas, we have tried our best. Our special thanks to Buell Cobb, advisor; Dean Charles Smith, assistant dean of Stu- dent Services; and Larry Naylor, representa- tive for Taylor Publishing Company.
