A CREED EOR GUILFORDIANS

Isn't that a good creed for seniors

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
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

comes the question, "How may we

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
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
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.
