DEDICATION

 

We, the members of the class of 1919, gratefully dedicate this number of the "Spectator" to our fathers and mothers, whose selfsacrifice has made possible our present attainments. The advantages and opportunities which have been ours, were due to their devotion. To their foresight and sympathy we owe our success. To them we owe our appreciation.

 


 

EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE

 

To our faculty advisors, Miss Katherine M. Ulery and Mr. Charles L. Sanders, who have labored so hard to make our "Spectator" a success, we, the class of 1919, extend our gratitude.
