Austin Daily Texan (Newspaper) - May 19, 1957, Austin, Texas Sunday May in 1957 the daily texan Page 4 of All things and into a May night j a in a year s turning by Nantt my Muns texan editor j tone looking out into the ballroom of the j sex at i Mon. Heiring a nude i May never of of a gain Quot the Light from the Eha Deher reflect a rot the a a first. The room a in for the Many plot it in he c in a whee j ran it beginnings and endings t it h a semester com creation and if it a Good enough equipment to git e the texan a heal my year then i am satisfied. At least in part i never had any delusions about my possibilities for being a really Good editor hit there was something in the texan heritage that t wanted to preserve and thought i could. Organized forms of athletics and who were gracious enough to treat the girl they did t want to win like a lady and a general. I went to an mentation dance to this room four years ago my Date was one of three people tha i knew in a sea of 14 poo student souls the same fall i met or. Ito can Wilson at the preside re a #. E had really gone Fust to observe from a respectful distance but Bill Mcvey Nims the managing editor who put the first ropy Pencil in my hand end told me to get to work took me in Tow and introduced me i remember thinking a i do vef that he looked lust exactly As a University president should. The ballroom had Heen the scene of dances Velores an hour s study Ai noon before going to work. So Many thine. But i member the stump speaking Hest especially my own where i made a Public declaration of my desire to be texan editor probably the most colourful thing about the whole Campaign Wah slogan of one of my opponents a a Man for a Many a Job a i am sure that he lived to regret it and that night upon Sage advice from Ned Caldwell i told the gathered crowd that sex was no criterion of a Good of tor o a i in i he irk r truth 7till he rung on thit High Hill in a year t turn no t thought about these lines As i began the year thex Are Dylan Thomas and they seemed to fit the venture i was undertaking. T cannot know whether it i Sung hut i know that it has grown and for that i am grateful. An sex editor later gave me a Bra a printers line or a Uge a she told me it was to slap against my hand while i was talking to people but i Neer used it for that with Quot a Nan for a Nan n jobs inscribed on the Back. The line gauge a Brandy Glass that somehow always had a Flower in it and a pen that came with a card that said something about heme mightier than a a word were the comm editor Token that accompanied me kindly through the veer. If i have Learned one thing As editor it is that you need people and they Are there when you need them. In the la analysis you Are alone pm your High Hill and the decisions a yours hut the people have made the Way possible. I knew before t to. Am editor that Peov mattered most and that people had made the University what it was for me. After i became editor i realized it even More the people Are the texan staff others some who were friends before and some met because of the Job who became friends too. ,. No Good thing that the texan has Don this year and i Hope there have been several could have been done alone and i Cannel a v Good Bye without thanking them not by name her a use they Hest know who they Are and Why t thank them they counselled me and Thev comforted me and sometimes they scolded me j they drank Tea with me in the Patio and they talked All night with me sometime until it was Light again because we knew that not Only did people matter most hut they were More important than six hours sleep when there was no one Al to do it they did it and when we did not think it we As possible to laugh they made us want to. They were there when w e needed them two aprils ago i was walking acini a the Terrace late to an r of clock class in International politics when i heard the Tower Chimes playing a the kit Tex of t was such an Quot out group cry then that i did no to know what a the eyes meant at 8 o clock on an april morning but i thought All the Way to class about How i could never describe to anyone what the University meant to me i decided tha you could t describe it the on a Way you could know was to live n if has always pleased Ere that i was late to Cia so i could hear the Chimes and think about then the morning i was tapped for mortar Boa re snot tier Memoir of another april and another summer that cannot go unsaid. And it is a thank you too. Is of the girl who shared the secret of a a knowing who the next editor would be she told me mine Anil id be the warmest texan get or ii Hast been in always liked her thinking it would he she dido t get to stay around for the execution of the plan Bio there is no Way to re member the University and the texan and what they hav meant to me without remembering her too and How she understood. I did not com to the Job at in Many do a a person marked to a editor since the Day he first walked into the texan office i came fully aware of of Many inadequacies indeed with nothing to show for myself but some technical competence that Many could a matched and a Tov for the texan and a love for that University without th5 University re. Texan would have no reason for Hane and in love the texan s to love re University a pretty Good equipment a someone said in a 30 a i said i w a not going to mention name hut one i must. Tirol Querolo girl managing editor. Her initials a a cop Reading Mark that Means a a it Safe rights and she is a Gracyus opponent a victorious loser. She came hark to tile texan when we needed her and there a no thanks sufficient to die lob so has Don or the person so is. And a special and very fond thank you to our sport Hove who never really minded the i wanted to do away with an co Fri i have med from the first reality of walking by the editor s of Fie and being surprised afer no on is in the chair and the reason no one is is because it was Rev chair and Iva supposed to he there to a time Quot Hen the Blue chair really seemed to belong to me and i really Wasny to aware when the transition happened hut it was evident when we had come to the final unreality the thirty edition and the saying Good Bye. I entre to the end of the year and find As i am told All editor do the i hav Only now Learned How to a an editor it take a ear to learn what the Job really is what ran he done with it and How to do it it takes a year too. To learn the people who Are your Reader and the people who make your news and All you can do having Learned How to to an editor a year too late is to say a few nerd to the new editor and try in a a he from your mistake and impart your knowledge to him knowing that it Nhi year s timing he will know it ton and my managing editor a just turned her column in and i find so i done it better in a word than i hav in Many inches. Wherein the me says everything in a won by Carol Querol not a my Nar of one word says it happiness thank you and goodbye. Music ending walking across the door tilth the Light going out the Lait time into the May night and the Heather odour 4 wiling rack to a it slight too men a a Spang ago 7 Here jul re n.

A freshmen comes searching Here he learns How to search by Byron Lindsey Mfd fort Al Aasin at that they could Ever the boy faced freshman Crane i head Down re aisle As the bus top a Bill through the window dead ahead lies the Tower. It dominates the landscape for him Quot there it there it is a a says in silent tones of anticipation mixed with fear. He Bas reason to be nervous As be moves into his first dormitory. Talks to his finst Roommate takes his first exam. But after he forget that he is at the big University and that he must a like a freshman at the University it will be a Tim and place for change of he uses it right he will hardly recognize himself four years later he will be a few inches taller and have an older looking face from packages and packages of cigarettes. Too must h commons Coffee and the sophomoric no do fad but the big change is inside and he will know it if no one Els Doe at its Best hat is what the University is a place of change to Texas youth anyone knows that the University is no Harvard nor even a Michigan and of has a number of Steps to climb before becoming the Oft repeated a University of the first but for the 18-year-Olds who converge on it each fall from new Horton and Smiley Pecos Dalhart and Dallas it is the nearest to a urst Cia ado ration reach. The ascription on the main building become in Tun a platitude and what the Man in the president s office says or Doe in t say is too far removed to have much lasting effect on the University undergraduate the important moments comp in places like Garrison Hall 7 or English building 304 or experimental science building tis where he hears imaginative and patient men like Guy Steffan Robert Stephenson. Dewitt Reddick talk in Batts 106 he teams a language he hardly knew existed Hack in new Boston its there the Chang Start they Are solidified enlarged later in Long talks with the perennial a boy Down the Hall the girl in history class the lab supervisor who is a Friend accidentally and not at All a part of the official University scheme come myriad expected is the Gie tort of the unofficial discoveries is when the boy from Nacogdoches feels the toy of mature love with the girl from Mcallen. Just finding her fills a Large Hole Between what he knows and that shadowy Region of what he a looking for. The Nacogdoches boy realizes that at least half the Long a search to find himself he Learned to Call his inner uncertainty by that phrase when he took English t77k and read Thorn voila a after a1 just a parch to find her the significant thing though is that the University undergraduate learns to search to look for new answers to new questions that ii beneath the Placid surface of life in Clark Svall or wherever he goes to live and work aft the four year Retreat for spiritual and intellectual in ugh Tenem has ended of the graduate uses what the University offered him. Looks into the doors it opens he May kill cancer for he world or be the Diplomat who stops the War his son May write the great novel. But even if he Doe nothing greater than Heing president of the Cotulla Lions club some of the resourcefulness and pert up. Lion of a University education is bound to rub off on the society that surrounds or is this a Case of snowballing optimism a noted British journalist who toured the United states recently recorded All it blemishes and achievements. In balancing them. He found that the saving Grace of the american people is the by know what kind of Peep e they Are. This might also he Vad or the University of Texas a Quality that even Harvard possibly cannot claim. Through its faculty and its students the awkward Texas undergraduate can come to know what kind of Poi son he is what kind of people his people Ara. Ton and the dim the year he ran with a dream. Tho words that expressed the dream came from the Texas Constitution which is a fair enough place to begin hut they require connotations in the mind of the hearer Beton they take on real meaning. We had a notion of what they meant or at least of what we wanted them to mean we Hen we reaffirmed our belief in the dream for the dream was not ours alone hut a traditional dream of the texan. But it was probably a Little better than a sophomoric notion. A year of watching the University in action a Given us a More realistic approach to the dream and to the possibilities and probabilities of its ultimate fulfilment. The main thing we Learned is that the most Beautiful dreams do not come to full fruition overnight. With the v Ision in mind and the hands Busy with the materials at hand they ran be approached however. As a texan albeit adopted we were shamed last summer by the racial referendums offered to the voters and Moreno by their passage. Yet they showed us what had to he worked with. As a student we were dismayed at the decision our president Felt he had to make about Barbara Smith. A what is Texas coming to a a distraught Liberal asked us not too Long ago. Me we As referring to the segregation Hills w hich have distressed All those whom we like to think of As a a thinking people. We too were shamed of the segregation Hills but we replied a in 1865, there was slavery in the United and we repeat As we have said before old wrongs Are not righted in a Day or a year or two years. And the sad incidents that occur along the Way As time urges the gradual evolution along Are not portentous enough to make us forget the Overall Progress that we see about us. It is testimony enough on the Success of integration within the University that Barbara Smith could honestly say she had been overwhelmed with her acceptance by teachers and fellow students As a just another for the i diversity it Adf. The year has seen Many strides taken in the direction of the dream selective admissions were instituted a must in our Book because a University a greatness is in part in proportion to the Quality of its students teacher salary pay raises were in sight academic standards were raised to a level that in already having a salutary effect on the atmosphere on Campus and the Scholastic reputation of the University. Platts were begun for the 75th year Celebration which will be something much More than a historical Celebration. It will be a focusing on the future by the University and those across the state who Are devoted to its further growth and improvement. The i in varsity moves Forward not w without occasional mishap. But the Overall direction is one of Progress toward that a University of the first e have been As close As any student is privileged to be to that i diversity. We have loved it watched a four year period of its growth. We have seen Petty men in its ranks perform Petty acts but these have been overshadowed by larger acts thoughts and plans by larger men. The year has taught us much in terms of patience for Progress we have comp a Little closer to understanding what the University of the 100th year should be we ar3 anxious to see it for we believe in die dream.
