To the Graduating Class of 1946:
FOR SIX YEARS THE graduating classes of this university have been going out to a
world at war. You are the first class since 1939 to enter a world of peace. Some of
your number interrupted their university work to serve their country and now have
returned and completed their studies. Their share in the struggle will be for them a
matter of satisfaction and pride during all their lives. Those of you who were not
called to service will remember, nevertheless, that the war brought to you certain
responsibilities and duties, though you were happily spared the danger and risks which
But now you all go out together, ambitious, I trust, to do your part, whatever
that may be, in making a better world and guarding against those tendencies which
might again lead us into such horrors as those through which we have passed. The
years ahead belong to you, each individual will be responsible for his or her contribu-
tion to the future.
The area of men's interests has been enormously widened in the years during
which you have been members of the undergraduate body. We have all become in
more or less degree world-minded. In this there lies the danger, however, that we may
so spread our interests that those most vital to us may become overshadowed. I say,
therefore, let Canada be your first interest because this is your country and most of
you will spend your lives within its borders. Strive that in Canada we may build
up a people, sound in spirit, wholesome in their living, and governing themselves by
those eternal principles of righteousness which alone make nations strong.
ARTHUR T. LITTLE.
Chairman, Board of Governors.
