of life's duties and privileges, and
that we may put into practice some-
thing of the vision of a higher, nobler
life which we have received here.
We feel that in doing this we shall
have repaid, to a certain extent, the
debt that we owe to Miss Berry and
to this school. It is in this spirit
that we face these exercises today.
We have been led through pleasant
paths thus far, and we are eager to
make the turn to the larger sphere
of life that lies around the corner.
We ask you then, dear friends,
to join with us with glad hearts in
the celebration of this hour, and to
accept our assurance of the deep
pleasure it offords us for you to be
here. We sincerely hope that when
we have finished, and the fellowship
of this day has faded into memory,
you will feel that you are as truly
glad you came as we are to have
you with us
I have been honored with the pri-
vilege of representing the class of
1929 before you at this time. Today
is our day. We have worked dili-
gently in preparing for this glorious
occasion and may we now forget at
this time that we must soon part,
and rejoice because we have climed
the ladder of success thus far.
To Miss Berry, our first words of
parting are due. The farewell word
that we would speak to her is full
of deeper meaning than we can ex-
press. We realize that it is her un-
ceasing service and devoted. love that
has made it possible that we might
assemble here to say farewell- Dur-
ing these two years, each of us has
received a higher and nobler vision
of life. As long as life itself shall
last, we shall cherish the memories
of the days that we have spent in this
institution. We will ever strive to
do the things that she has instituted
into our hearts and souls.
Dr. Green and Members of the
Faculty, the time has come for us to
leave you and as we address you to-
day, we cannot refrain from expres-
sing the deep sense of obligation that
rests upon us. We have spent two
years of our lives under your care
and have irsceived training whidh
forms a large part of the equipment
for our lives. We have passed
through this course with a growing
respect for your scholarship. We
are indeed grateful to you for hav-
ing been helpful in the building of
And now, in the name of my class
whose representative I am proud to
be, I bid you farewell, with the hope
that your memory of us may be as
pleasant as ours shall always be of
Fellow-students of the under-
graduate class, today we leave this
beloved college in your care. You
are to walk these halls and paths
that we have trod so many times.
The duties that were once ours are
yours. We are glad that we leave
strong-hearted students who love
their college and will stand up for
her when we are gone.
We are leaving her in the most
capable hands we know. Neverthe-
less, we fell that we must not resign
our places in the classroom and on
the campus to your full and free en-
joyment without reminding you of
that old proverb:

Besides these enforced gifts, we
leave, not of necessity, but of our
own free will, our blessings, tender
memories of our pleasant associations
together, and our forgiveness for any-
thing that we may have not exactly
appreciated in the demonstrations of
the past, and a pledge of friendship
from henceforth and forever.
All the rest and residue of our
property, whatsoever and whereso-
ever, of what nature, kind and qua-
lity, whatsoever it may be, and not
herein being disposed of, we give and
bequeath to our Principal, for his use
and benefit, and to be disposed of
for the benefit of the coming classes,
as he may choose.
And we do hereby constitute the
said Principal sole executor of this,
our last will and testament.
In witness whereof, we, the class
of 1929, the testators, have to this
our will, set our hands and seal this
the sixth of May, Anno Domini, one
thousand nine hundred and twenty-
It is my great privilege today, in
behalf of my classmates, to extend
to you our most cordial and sincere
welcome. We are truly glad that
it becomes our pleasure to entertain
you for a short time at this turn in
the road of life, and we trust that
you may have every cause to long
remember the association of this
hour. To you this may be indeed a
pleasant occasion, for we shall cer-
tainly do our best to make it so:
but at best, it will be only one of
many, many such occasions in your
life, which, enjoyable as they may be
at the time, will be but fleeting in
their influence. To us, it is especially
significant, and it is bound to live
forever in our memories as one of
the most important events of our
Today marks the goal toward
which we have persistently striven
for the past two years of work and
study. It stands forth as the climax
of our happy, busy lives here, which
have been filled with countless op-
portunities for the broadening, up-
lifting development that has helped
to fit us for the new world upon
which we are to turn our faces to-
morrow. As we stand on the thres-
hold of the strange and unknown
future that stretches before us, and
pause to consider the full signifi-
cance of this occasion, there is a
touch of sadness and regret mingled
with the joy in our hearts on this
our day of days. As we think of
severing our dear class ties and fond
companionships, and of the many
familiar scenes that must be left
behind, we realize that the stream
of life runs swiftly, and that many
and varied are the scenes that must
pass before us as we make our way
upon its surging waves.
As our minds review the experien-
ces, the opportunities, and the joys
that have been ours during this im-
portant period in our lives, we are
made to feel as never before the
great responsibility that these privi-
leges have placed on our shoulders.
It is enough, indeed, to call forth
the resolve that, whatever the mis-
takes of the past, we shall face with
unflinching valor the beckoning
future that calls us from these scenes
into new experiences. It is our hope
that we may apply faith like that of
our beloved Founder in our share

no failure or defeat. For him alone,
all the experiences in life combine
to pave the way to further achieve-

happier for us than that through
our lives, in joy and sorrows, in
brightest sunshine and deepest shad-

consciousness of duty well performed
of suffering nobly endured, all of
life faithfully lived. With many
pleasant memories of our fellowship
