Farewell, old school, and friends so
Our parting day at last is hereg
'Tis sad to part, and this we know,
But along life's road we all must
Farewell, Miss Berry, our Founder
We love you sincerely, indeed we
But we can't stay, and this you know,
So along life's road we all shall go.
Farewell, dear teachers, with hearts
The end of our days are drawing
This we say with hearts o'er flowing,
And we won't leave with out your
Farewell, old campus, in all your
With your trees and birds that
sing their story,
We love you truly, O yes, we do,
But out in the world they're call-
Classmates our graduation has come
The time at' last is here,
That we must leave old Berry
And friends we hold most dear.
As we take a backward glance
It isn't long, it seems
Since we entered here together
To materialize our dreams.
We'1l never forget the happy' days
That we have together spent
They are memories that would linger
No matter where we went.
'Tis true there have been days
When the skies weren't always blue
When we felt like giving up
And telling our dreams crumbled
Then ,we've thought of our Alma
So noble, true and brave
Who has given her youth, her self,
For lives like ours to save.
And we saw 'twas the hard things
If we only face them right
That gives us new courage and hope
To tackle and win the fight.
So 'tho this time of parting be sad
Lets meet it with a smile
And remember the hardest trials
that came our way
Are blessings in beguile.
We know not what our destinies may
Tho over the world we should roam
We'll always be wishing and praying
The best' for you back home.
And the standards she has taught
We will ever hold high and true
And proudly love and cherish
The "Silver and the Blue."
It's better to have loved and lost
than to have married and still be

tude. It is through her faith in the
manhood of the South and her un-
ceasing efforts and her earnest pray-
ers that great opportunites have been
offered us, and for these we are
grateful to her. Can we find any-
where a truer patriot than our be-
loved founder of whom it has been
"All praise to her who labored, noth-
For that enduring good which none
With knowledge for her star, and love
Who, hand in hand with God, has
wrought this deed."
To you, my fellow classmates, I
would that this be a day of vision as
well as a day of memory. So as we
pass through the Gate of Opportun-
ity, let us walk bravely with a full
realization of the fact that with every
opportunity our beloved founder has
given us, came a responsibility of
equal importance. We will not dis-
appoint the trust that gave us these
opportunities, by failing to live up to
our responsibilities. Even though
we will be separated by distance we
will not be distant in spirit. We are
all bound together by the principles
and truths and ideals that have been
instilled in us here. We know that
we cannot fail if we go out into our
chosen professions seeking what we
can do for our community and hu-
manity, rather than what our com-
munity can do for us.

It is a poor creature who when
he graduates does not feel that he
has received something for which he
owes a return. We should remem-
ber that, "Who seeks aid must show
how service sought can be repaid."
In conclusion, let us not feel sad
today as we leave these campus
scenes, and our teachers and school-
mates whom we have learned to love,
but instead let us feel that another
great opportunity has been placed be-
fore us. It is now our opportunity
to go out and prove true to our Alma
Mater either by going forward into
the broader field of college life or
by entering into an active life in the
world-that life for which we have
been preparing. Let us not feel sadg
we have not reached the end, but a
new beginingg we are not bidding
good-day but we are bidding good-
morrow. For us,
"The year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn,
God's in his heaven-
All's right with the world.
