Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, Jf I remember thee not." Isn't that a good creed for seniors 10 take with them as a parting pledge to their Alma Mater? Isn't it a good creed for alumni to cling to when they are miles away from the beloved college campus, and the ties that four years ot college life have built into their lives begin to weaken a bit? Isn't it a ringing challenge to Joval sons and daughters to return to this, their chosen mother, at com mencement time? And returning, what then? William Lowe Bryan, president of the oldest state university west of the Alleghenies, has said, "A noble Alma Mater is created bv sacrifice. None truly belong to her save they who join in the sacrifice." To Guilfordians returning with this spirit in their hearts, unnum bered needs present themselves—for in this day of change constant ad justment is forever necessary. Then comes the question, "How may we help?" The answer is easy. Get such a huge dose of true Guilford spirit at this commencement that you will come to feel that whatever Guilford needs, she must have —have willing ly, joyously, gloriously. Get a vision of the educational possibilities ahead of this oldest co-educational institu tion in the south, rich in spirit and potentialitv, poor only in material things. When every Guilford man and woman sees adown the vista of the years new visions of her glory rise, then all Guilford's needs shall be as sured, for we back with out last dollar the thing we believe in. NEW BUSINESS* POLICY The addition of a circulation man ager to the Business Staff carries with it more that merelv relieveing the Business Manager of his present method of distribution. The underlying purpose for ad ding the new position is to enlarge our circulation. Possiblv the great est service that our paper can do is to keep the alumni in touch with the college and its needs. The college that loses touch with its alumni sus tains a severe blow. It is the policy of the new board to haye The Guilfordian read by all of Guilford's alumni and a large per cent of her old students. The Guilfordian Board wishes to thank all who have in any way con tributed to the success of this paper and asks the hearty support of its friends in helping us to create a bet ter paper and make our new policy a success. TO THE SENIORS Past now the class room routine, past the engrossing student activities, slipping rapidly the last moments of the comradship of four years spent together. Rather a tremulous situa tion, what? Like you, your college grieves a bit at the same time that she rejoices —for she is a real mother, this Alma Mater of yours. She sends you out into the world, knowing that she will miss you, proud of your accomplish ments here, eagerly hoping for great things for you out there. No class can spend four years in a college without its imprint for bet ter or worse upon the college life. Seniors of the class of '22, Guilford watches you go, secure in her belief that your stay here has made pre dominantly for the mutual welfare of both. And so with a smile, she bids you God-speed and all hail, '22. TO THE ALUMNI Why come back to commence ment? Well, why not? It is good to learn what the youngsters are doing and what the oldsters have done. And then the crimson ramblers and the magnolias are in bloom just as they used to be. The old campus that you used to love is here, beautiful and friendly still. A day on that campus and your love of Guilford comes alive again—if ever it has smouldered, which heaven forbid. It is as though you drink at the foun tain of youth. Congressman Connally Delivers An Addrest (Continued from paprc 1) tion to international problems. He said that peace ideals of great men and the many recent conferences have been steps in the right direc tion but to prevent wars the causes for wars must be removed. An in ternational court of justice, to which the powers would agree to submit their causes, was the answer he sug gested. The speaker said that one's an swer to the question; "Quo Vadis," should always be to truth and honor, to excellence and to service of coun try." He spoke of the great accom plisments of such men as Columbus, Washington and Penn and their de termination to go forward. In clos ing the speaker said, "It is the per formance and not the task that takes the measure of a man. Somewhere there is a place that you can fill bet ter than any other. It may be ob scure—it may be plain—it may be humble, —but you may fill it greatly. The Y. M. C. A. held its last meet ing of the college year on May 25, with Lyndon Williams as leader. The theme of his talk was Christian per •- J— o|nnment.
