from the goal which is at last so near graduation!
For the first time, commencement In the
midst of the beauty of summer, In the ripe fulfillment of August. Solemnity and ceremony,
from the dignity of black gowns and caps and
cowls. The hushed and awed attitude of parents and friends who have come to
witness the thrilling spectacle of Johnny and
Mary stepping across the threshold of life, from
the shelter of a loving Alma Mater.
Hardly has It seemed four years since the pursuit after knowledge brought you to college. But
through the vista of those campus years are
seen four stalwart arches, each a gateway to the
next step toward graduation, the ultimate destination.
And at last someone has provided
you with the long desired paraphernalia
commencement, and here you are, a bit surprised and breathless that you have reached
You had rather dreaded graduating merely
by passing examinations and receiving your diploma through the mail, but the growth and
progress of Kentucky, your Alma Mater, has
given you a proper send-of- f.
Are you not proud
of being one of the members of the class which
is the first to hold commencement
during the Summer Session?
Perhaps even more impressive is the midsummer graduation, with Its number of high
degrees conferred upon those who have proven
themselves worthy, than the regular one, which
has somewhat more of the typical bustle and
hurry of undergraduates.
We do not say goodble to you who are leaving,
rather a hearty "farewell!"
