: v»l ; arco w 1912 ; Preparatory History Everything that has ever existed has had a mall beginning. The human race at one time numbered but two souls. Most great nun have risen from places of obscurity. All things cannot he great ; it requires the small, insignificant things to make the large things appear large. Neither can all men be great, for it takes the common people to make the great man appear great: so in this world today we have Preps as well as Seniors. Nothing is too small to he useful and even we have a work to accomplish and now we are getting ready for this work, whatever it may be. 83

: : arco w 1912 ; We found our way to this institution. No one ever thought or us or were expecting anything unusual; but, one pleasant morning in September we were on the scene of action springing up as it were like a mushroom in the night. Inheriting somewhat of the spirit of |ohn Smith (the Captain) it was impossible to keep us in obscurity very long. Already more than once we have made our professors sit up and take notice in wide-eyed amazement at the things we did not know. i hat w e w ere an extraordinary remarkable class was evinced by our appearance. It was remarkable in our girls that their small heads could carry the hats they wore. The most prominent feature of the hoys was their ability to do the standing broad grin, which was almost as broad as the hats worn by the gentler ones. Xot only in appearance are we far above the ordinary, but in the field of athletics we have shown an aptness that is remarkable. The phenomenal record made by the football team was largely to be attributed to us, for not only did we play fast ball, but our presence on the side lines was an inspiration that sent the team through to victory. Also we are mental gymnasts. Upon our arrival within these classic walls we showed marvelous abilities for debating, far exceed- ing our professor ' s highest expectations. Realizing our great possibilities if developed under the most pro- pitious surroundings, the upper classmen were verv kind and con- siderate of us. While we were still young and timid they often will- ingly condescended to accompany us on quiet strolls over the sur- rounding country, after closing hours, to point out (it may have been) a hit of picturesque scenery or to test our abilities along new lines, or to demonstrate some of the twentieth century inventions. For these main kindnesses our hearts go out to our benefactors. Not only here did we attract attention, but shortly after our ar- rival [ohn 1). sent his representative to look over our surroundings, lie was satisfied, however, that a College with such a perspicacious collection in the nursery was well equipped for the future. Later events proved this; for not long after our College received a gift of two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000). with another two hundred thousand as good as subscribed. This is the age of the extraordinary and we are no exception to the rule. We will say it now, so that when it comes to pass no one will need to be unduly surprised: That when our plastic minds are sufficiently developed and we enter the regular College classes — paregoricallv speaking — there will be something doing. This, together with the completion of the proposed electric road, will bring about that day to which the Alumni of this institution have been looking, The Pay of Greater Westminster. Pre]) Historian, 1920 A. D. 84
