generations for their enlightenment and inspiration.
Emphasizing the search for truth as the main business
of students, he said that truth consisted in more than

ward and complete harmony with the Mind of Christ
and the Will of God,” he concluded.

By a New Student
The outsider casually looking at the Bishop Tuttle
School sees an attractive beautifully constructed build
ing in which, she is told, a group of young women live
and learn. Ihe new student, however, is impressed with
a great deal more than the beauty of the building which
is to be her new home. Immediately upon arrival, she
is given such a Avarm, hearty welcome by the faculty
and the students that she instantly regards herself a
member of a great family—the Tuttle family.
The friendliness of the people at the Tuttle School
is not only the impression one forms on entering. A
student comes to this school to learn something, and
she soon discovers that the entire atmosphere is con
ducive to study; consequently all apply themselves to
their work. Aside from study all students have the
opportunity to participate in other activities, educa
tional and religious. The striking thing about the at
titude of the Tuttle students is that they evidence a
definite willingness to take part in voluntary as W'ell
as required activities.
These impressions may seem few and of no con
sequence, but an individual in any new environment
knows that such an atmosphere assists one to make ad
justments easily. So, the way people are greeted here
and the manner in which students go about their various
duties, along with the opportunities offered for re
ligious, educational and cultural development, have
made a favorable impression on all the new students
entering the Bishop Tuttle School.—A. A. B.
