Dear Girls and Boys:
An annual letter to you seems much like a Valedictory
-just the same thing over and over, yet at Berry there IS
always something new and full of excitement.
For the graduating class in our Junior College we feel
this is no farewell time, as it is announced that another year
of college work is to be offered, and we expect most of the
class to remain with us. We are glad that some of our high
school graduates of other years are returning for college.
I have a letter from Jewel Tatum, 1923, saying that
after teaching live years her desire for a college education has
strengthened and deepened and she is coming back to Berry
to enter college next fall. She will be working with us this
summer. This is the thing for which Miss Berry planned in
offering college work, and the return to Berry of "our own"
always pleases her and encourages her to believe that the
college will meet the need of our ambitious young people who
cannot get college training unless they can work their way.
Tilda McCain and Inez Love, 1929, are now working in order
to enter college in the fall.
We are happy to say that a large number of our Senior
high school girls are planning to be in college next year. As
the college group increases, it will be necessary for some each
year to work during the spring term, others, during the fall
term to get through their full course. Some will be graduated
at Christmas time instead of at Commencement, but any girl
who is really in earnest about getting a college education is
willing to pay the price, which means patience and perser-
As I write this letter I see the workmen passing mv win-
dow beginning the excavation for the new Girls' School
dormitory. With this and the Mothers' Building in process
of construction, the campus will be a busy place this summer.
"Everybody works at Berry" and all the time. We want to
work. for there is so much to do. How does Browning say
it? "The little done. the undone vast." It is great inspiration
to work at such a busy place and feel that we are helping to
finish some of the "undone" things.

My Dear Friends:
Commencement again! and the time for you to go from
the realm of Berry into other realms.
"A glorious company, the flower of men,
To serve as a model for the mighty world,
A nd be the fair beginning of a time."
Berry asks of you, as King Arthur pledged his knights
"To reverence the King, as if he were
Their conscience, and their conscience as their King,
To break the heathen and uphold the Christ,
To ride abroad, redressing human wrongs,
To speak no slander, no, nor listen to it,
To honor his own word as if his God's,
To lead sweet lives in purest chastity,
To love one maiden only, cleave to her,
And worship her by years of noble deeds,
Until he won her, for indeed I know
Of no more subtle master under heaven
Than is the maiden passion for a maid,
Not only to keep down the base in man,
But teach high thought, and amiable words
And courtliness, and desire of fame,
And love of truth and all that makes a man."
S. H. COOK

Silver and Blue
DR. JOHN H. WINTER
J' .al J'
Gleams the blue of morning,
Mists are rising fast,
To our gaze revealing
Life and Work at last:
Hearts a-thrill with vigor,
Eyes with hope alightg
Blue is the early sunrise-
Silver shines the height.
On Youth's dewy meadows
Marsh and bog we find,
But strong and wise our marshals,
Great of heart and mindg
Every mire they've sighted
From their tower at dawng
On their charts they've marked them.
Now they lead us on.
Soon the foothills rise
To homes above the plaing
Truth and Beauty dwell there-
Love and Peace shall reign.
O, may Faith and Vision
Lead our steps aright,
Blue the early morning!
Silv'ry glows the height!
