The editors of Maroon
and (luid always welcome
communications from the
student body. We are
especially delighted when
these communications take
the form of editorials. If
at any time you wish to
contribute articles, letter.s
or editorials, just send
these corftributions to the
Maroon and Gold, and we
will be glad to print them
in full whenever possible.
It is with pleasure that
we print in this issue two
editorials recently receiv
ed from students outside
the journalism class, and
one by Dean Messick.
With spring upon us — new
preen on the hillsides, yellow and
lavender in the w eds, the pink
and white of orchards against the
eky, and June just anound the
ct.amer—it’s almost too late now
for the departing Seiniors to
change the records they have made
during their four yi'ars at Elon.
But their exferieni,e can serve as
a warning to underclassmen to
Uike advantage of all the offered

tunity of being one ;of those privi

will be tihru'-it upon the stage of

Knight, mixed with yur dismay
and uncertainty is doubtlesis a
tempting desiire to put your

The idea of happiness is ori-
gin'ally determined from cases cf
fulfilled deisiues. No two con
crete cases .,f haippine*-^ aire just
like each other in actual make
up. No m'atter what attitude you
make your contiiibuti'^n you re
ceive the fulfillment of that de
sire. This haippiness is fulfill
ment of meetiing the requirements
set up by siome desire. A miser
f*n/us 's'atisfactian in storing up
money, and a liberal per on in
■pending it to give happiness t^,
otht^s. Botih dtirive the fulfill
ment of their desi'res. The most
acceptable means ;0f happiness is
the giivjng to promote happiness
Ceitain conduct may cause
good to others but bringij suffer
ing to the one whio promotes the
interest of others. In other instan
ces conduct whi;h causes others
to suffer yields happiness to the
one who injures othe'^s. We
should desire th« objects in con
duct which bring good with those
whom we are lassociated. Indivi
duals achieve ihapipine-^s by doing
th.'mgs whrich are hainjonious with
the happiness of others.
Too n-.uny people have FEAR
and WORRY. Often tim=s an in
dividual worries about conse
quences of an activity befote they
really take plai-e. If people would
blot out thti-e two items and think

the people as a whole would be
