The SENIOR BOOK.
ZH Jlzamretnell message.
N old, time-stained engraving, which I wishl might bring to you, pictures a mother stand-
ing in the doorway of a low, thatched cottage shading her eyes with her hand. She
is gazing far down the narrow lane, hedged by its tall poplar trees, following with hungry longing
the boy who is disappearing at the turning of the path. You know that, long after the youthful
figure with its springing step passes out of the reach of the tear-dimmed eyes, the heart of the
mother follows on-yes, never, never to turn back.
If one could paint the vision which the young heart sees so clearly, as the light steps go on,
how full of courage, of hope, of enthusiasm it would be! For such courage, such hope, and
such enthusiasm the world thanks God. Yet we know that the vision of the mother-heart is clearer
yet, and that the eyes which are shaded by the wrinkled, toil-worn hand see farther than the
undimmed gaze of youth. The prayer of the mother goes forth in abounding blessing to guide
the unfearing feet in the untrodden path -a pillar of fire in the night of doubt or temptation,
and in the fierce heat of the noon-day sun, a pillar of cloud with its beneficent and saving shade.
I have no doubt that you have already discerned my message, for it is not by accident that

living and giving. The memories of the college days would have a different meaning were it not
for the abiding spirit of loving kindness which watches over the growing lives of the sons and
So, as the mother speeds her boy upon his life-quest with brave Words and reverent blessing,
your College sends you forth. The turn of the road may hide you from her following eyes, but
she will not forget you. She is still with you. Look back, as your path winds up the hill or dips
down into the valley, and you shall still see the waiting figure in the doorway, or listen, in the
hour of the twilight or in the hush of the early dawn, and you shall hear and understand her
