The War Whoop Motto
For the wrongs that need resistence;
For the cause that needs assistance;
For the future in the distance

OUR ALMA MATER
Hail to our dear McMurry!
Long wave maroon and white J
Pride of the western prairie
Spirit of honor truth and right.
We cheerish your traditions;
Ever true we'll be.
Your Hall of Fame is in our hearts.
All hail to thee!
How many of you exes can still sing
those words unhesitatingly? Do they come
readily to your mind and lips? And if they
do what do they recall to you? Probably
pep rallies critical moments on the football
field when the whole student body stood
and put their very hearts into the song for-
mal openings of school in Septemtcr and
the mingled relief and regret of Commen-
cement. But beyond such memories does the
Alma Mater have any significance? Did
your years at McMurry give you anything
to carry away besides leminiscences of the
Have you any keener sense of honor
and any clearer distinction of right and
wrong because you spent those hours in
McMurry 's halls? Are you socially superior
to the self vou might have been if you had
sever gone to college this college? Can you
recognize truth any more readily and appre
ciate it nnv "ore fully? Are you any more
sympathetic and understanding when you
face pi-oblems of human relationships? Do
you know how to get mote joy and deeper
satisfaction from living?
Perhaps you can answer but-Spartially
evey for yourself and certainly"" fore can
never know tho complete answer for the
group. But possibly one thing suggects a
partial reply. These students who have come
to McMurry because of your recommenda-
tionand there arc many of them must
have felt that there was something here
worth working for. To them you meant
McMurry College; and because you were
something they wanted to become they
have come here.
Can you and I keep them from being
disappointed in us in themselves and in
our Alma Mater? J. R.
