T II B P E N purpose. He! believes tliat we sliould always lia,ve a goal, and to do e- verytliin" in our power to obtain that goa.l. “Be trne to yoiir Alma Mater,” he admonishes ns. Retired n,o\v, enjoyin" ease and contentment, the greatly sought- after fruits of a life worthwhile, our beloved Dean dwdls in his loveh^ home on St. Augustine’s campus, satisfied to give up his ac tive leadership in order to devote himself to cultivating the friend- ALWAY How often have you heard this thought expressed or implied in some way? “I never find time e- nough to do all the things that I would like to do or rather the things. I should do in the course of the day, simply because I am al ways busy doing something.” This thought is sometimes said or im plied with a sense of self-import ance, at other times in despair. But have you ever stopped long enough to find out if you are really so busy that you cannot determine your own possibilities and limita tions? It maybe tliat you are just in a continuous turmoil getting no place fast. It i.s true that life may seem crowded and busy now, but in fac ing realities you go from one thing to another, filling odd hours with play and unconsciously the day has pd.ssed before you have had time to realize its worth and meaning. Was it because you were too busy? ir so, the day was lived in vain, snnply because you have failed to exercise yoiir effort to accomplish tlie real purpose of the day. When life seems to be overrun ships of age and youth comradely companionship. To Dean Boyer, St. Augustine’s College symbolizes a dream-come-true^, a purpose ful filled, a goal attained. To us, Dean Boyer symbolizes the highest idea of Christian citizenship, and to him, we give a rose, exemplifying the beauty of his soul, the sweet ness of his spirit, and the colorful ness of his character. Inez Greenlea ’43 S BUSY with obligatorj" tasks, do not allow yourself to become too busj’ to take a little time to sort things out. Don’t you think it woiild be a good idea to plan your every-day living as nearly to your ability and per fection as you see fit ? It is wise to set your handard high, but the test is to keep it there. We owe it to ourselves to live life abundantly, joyously and above all with a real purpose. Why break j^our neck trying to save time when you do not know what to do with time saved? Life was not meant to be easy living day after day but rather an equally trying and hard one wherein, j’ou and I have to dig out the bitter and plant it with the sweet. Take time to find your indivi dual equilibrium. You alone can become master of your everyday living, and you only can determine whether each day will be a hectic and cluttered one or a balanced and perfected one. Violetta Edwards ’43
