The Ouachitonian 1931
Foreword: In this, the 1931 Ouachitonian, we have tried to present the age old-spirit of love and loyalty, not to the tune of an ancient masterpiece, but to the rhythm of a great symphony made up of our present day youth. Why should we always look to the past for means of expressing ourselves? Let us show ourselves as we are.
We consider our life modern, but let us not forget that in the years that are to come we shall again open this dusty volume and with a tear, or a smile, re-live the happiest days of our lives recalling our study friends, longing again to climb those time-worn stairs where the great and less great have climbed to their success. We shall again long to stroll under those spreading oaks under which life-long friendships were begun. To think that then this, our modern life, will be pointed out as "the good old days!"
