To the Class of 1961: 

It is with mixed emotions, emotions of pride and of humility, that 
I address you. I am indeed proud of your recognitions and your ac- 
complishments, and I am deeply grateful for my enriching association 
with you. 

As you look back upon your college days at this institution, you are, 
I am sure, aware of the fact that you might have worked harder to gain 
other achievements. But of greater importance is the realization that 
you have, I feel, learned, with a profound degree of insight and of 
maturity, to think for yourselves, to accept the inevitable responsibilities 
which have been and which will continue to be thrust upon you. 

The character and the reputation of the East Mississippi Junior 
College are, as you know, molded and established largely by your 
actions and, as citizens, by your contributions to our ever-changing 
"One World." Let us, therefore, seriously meditate upon our im- 
portant roles in life; and let us strive to do, and do well, that which 
will bring honor to ourselves, to our alma mater, to our country, and 
to our fellow man. 

When this kind of thinking and acting becomes habitually a part of 
us, then personal remuneration and self-satisfaction will follow, as does 
the dawn upon the night; and we shall, in turn, be happier and more 
successful individuals. 

My best wishes go with you. 

Yours sincerely, 

R. A. Harbour

He that governs well, leads the blind; but he

A college professor has written recently of 
his own profession, "They are teachers be- 
cause they have more than the usual desire to 
communicate. They are excited enough about 
something to want to tell others, have others 
love it as they love it."

If we work .upon marble, it will perish; if on brass, time will efface it; if we rear 
temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds, and 
imbue them with principles, with the just fear of God and love of our fellow-men, 
we engrave on those tablets something that will brighten to all eternity.

Phi Theta Kappa is a recognized honorary society whose object is to promote 
character and to cultivate fellowship among students in the junior colleges of the 
United States. Election to PTK places a particular stamp of merit upon the student, 
for after he has passed the academic hurdle he still must pass a faculty committee 
which judges him on character.

Our photographer, Jim Reddoch and Vicki Hassie plan for some 



pictures. 




The Lion editor is appointed in the Spring 
previous to his year of service, and much of 
his planning and worrying is supposed to go 
on during the Summer. When school starts, 
cameras start flashing and his worries really 
begin. Neither sponsor nor editor have a 
restful night until the last shipment leaves in 
February. After that the staff members can 
do nothing but compose their souls in quiet- 
ness until another LION arrives on campus.
