Do We Cherish
Our Nation?
By Ella M. Ivory
Several times in recent months,
the Chief Executive of our nation
has felt the need to assure his
fellow-Americans that this country
is constantly striving for peace,
that America is a great nation,
and its leaders arc i'mong the
most qualified in the world.
As I listened to President Johr-
son on television (he was s"e.ikip:
on the Dominican crisis), and as
I watched the expressions of sin
cerity and earnesty on his solemn
features, my heart just swelled
with pride. Yes, I was proud be
cause of the realization that
America has a strong leader, that j
America is a great and prosperous |
nation, and that we as citizens, re 1
wealthy just because we are Ameri- j
cans. I
During these few moments of'
intense "meditation." several
thoughts came to me: Do we re
member to be patriotic by even re- '
calling the sweet lines “O beautiful
for spacious skies, for amber waves
of grain—F o r purple mountain ’
majesties above the fruited pl iins"? '
Do we think of the symbol of the '
American flag and hope so Ion"
may it wave not only over the
land of the free and the home of i
the brave, but over all peoples who ;
believe in liberty?
Now. as we go about our pe"--
sonal tasks, let us stop to be grate- '
ful for the “wealth” that is our in- j
heritance because We are Amcri- '
cans. Yes, “As we raise our voices
in a solemn prayer, let u>^ all be
grateful for a world that is fair."
Let us cherish our great nation, i
Let us as citizens strive to make
Annual College
Day Observed
Each year, the faculty, staff, and
administration of ECSC honor
eraduating seniors by allowing
them to share a pood deal of their
responsibilities for a day. On the
thirteenth of April, this privii.’gc
w'.is given to the graduating class
of 1965. To have looked into the
faces of the majority of our seniors
on s\ich an auspici.nis occasion,
one would have thought it was
'.he long-awaited “D" Day. (Diplo
ma Day.)
They were given individual posi
tions ranging from the president's
swivel-chair to clock-punchcr in
the dining hall. For some reason
most classes that day reported
full attend mce records! When ask
ed about his experience one senic
replied. “It was neat.” Another
responded, “I enjoyed it because
it let us see how it was like on the
ther side of the desk ... It should
be continued.”

K. Bentley has turned in a fine
c -aching performance. In regular
season the team finished with a
! record of 12 wins and only 2
I losses. Coach Bentley believes that
, hard work, understanding of per-
I sonel, and drill on fundamentals
j are the keys to victory.
Much of the team's success must
go to individuals A1 Richards.
James Jones, Ralph Roland, Claude
Clark, and Eugene Thompson.
,\l Richards, a junior, compiled
an overall record of 13-2. With
so many wins under his belt, he
was topseeded in the CIAA tour
ney. The success of the team has
rested heavily upon his shoulders.
James Jones ended the season
with with 11 wins and 4 losses.
He is also a junior and has gained
recognition as a fine tennis player.
Jones offers great promise for the
coming season.
Ralph Roland, the only senior
on the team, was seeded fourth
in the tournament. Ralph is not
a graduating senior and coach
Bentley hopes that he will have
Ralph’s services in the season to
With an 11-4 record, Claude
Clark, a junior has done a great
job with the team thus far. At
times he appears to be better than
his record. There is much to be
seen of Clark in the future.
Leo Hill, a newcomer to the
tennis team and a junior, finished
the season with a 10-3 record. He
is looking forward to the new
season in hopes of bettering his
record and the team’s.
Eugene Thompson has acted as
team captain and despite a knee
injury was able to turn in a 3-3
record. He missed the greater part
of the season and is looking for
ward to bigger and better things

Coach B'entley states, “Disap
pointing single performances from
Al Richards, who was top seeded,
James Jones, Cleo Hill, and Eu
gene Thompson, kept the team
from making a much better show
ing in total team points. Total team
points were 12.’’
