If in these pages you should Jind 

Love and memories of days behind; 

When from these familiar scenes you've gone 

To do a deed, to make a home; 

It is our wish to recommend 

That you also find a friend.

To that spirit of love and service pro Deo et 
homine which is the essence of our Alma Mater 
and which serves as a guiding light for her sons 
and daughters we, the staff of the 1949 Stespean, 
dedicate this issue.

Excerpts from the statement of purpose .... We commit ourselves in singleness of devotion to God and 
seek to know and do His will. 

We seek to understand and follow Jesus Christ, and we seek to lead others to believe in Him and live as His fol- 
lowers. 

We take a stand on political, economic and social issues, working to eliminate the causes of poverty and injustice 
through the power of Christian love. 

We strive for unity m God's Church that it may become the community through which His will and love can be- 
expressed most fully.
