Next Fall we will have an opportunity to place the name of
State among the big four. Just look at the foot ball schedule in
our last issue and consider what a chance we have of winning
recognition. We have the material for a winning team, all
we need is a coach; and if you (the Alumni) will give us a lift,
we will promise to make your hearts glad, and make you feel
proud that you are a graduate of State.
mEmBERS of the Class of '99, we greet you for, the first time
as Alumni. Yours has been the toil for four long years,
• but it is now over, and you have passed out from the
doors of State with her blessing and best wishes. The toil of
college is over; but you have passed on to that larger toil which
only ends with life. The College will follow you in all the years
to come, will joy in your success, and grieve for your failures.
If the world seems cold and repulsive, remember you must take
it as you find it. Go slow, but sure; and if the world conspires
against you, fight, and fight hard; and if you must die, die hard
and with your face to the front. Remember us in your success,
and we will help you in your failures. And now to the class of
'99 we bid adieu, and with glass in hand we drink to the
toast, " May you ever live long and prosperous."
