1948 Commencement Speakers Are Announced
Out Lifers Guiding Star
Then to thee, Alma Mater, we’ll
ever be true.
Though the coming years scatter
us far;
And the ideals you taught us will
ever be bright
Shining out as our life’s guiding
The time has come when the
seniors must leave their Alma
Mater; they will scatter from it,
but never forget it. We’ve been
talking to the seniors, trying to
find out just where they are going
and what they are going to do. It
seems that the next generation in
many places is destined to be in
fluenced by Montreat ideals.
Born and bred in La Grange,
Georgia, Helen Loyd guesses she
will teach English there next year.
When Helen was asked what she
liked most about Montreat she
said, “The Mountains and the
beauties that make you feel close
to God ”
Clinton, South Carolina, will be
losing one of its best citizens if
Jean Morton decides to teach in
North Carolina. Jean hopes to

May Day festivitties are to be
held on the afternoon of May 22,

lirocessional will be “Pomp and
Circumstance” and as the court
enters onto the grassy slope down
into the park, it will be heralded
by voices blended in our May Day
Representatives to the court
have previously been named. To
these young ladies’ names, how
ever, can be added the name of a
young gentleman, Billie Burkes,
who will act as crownbearer.
The program for the celebration
is under the direction of Miss Sue
Burney. Betty Smith will furnish
the music.
It isn’t long now. The number
of minutes and hours until that
final day have been figured so
often that they will probably be
seconds shorter from all the wear
