Excerpt from The Forester, 1913, Vol. 16
A Junior Class again makes the effort, in this volume, to set down in permanent form the life of a college year. As we finish the book adding this last to the Foresters that have preceeded it, we realize one thing more clearly, that the. Mere recounting of facts and the sight of faces on the page do not give us campus life or college spirit as it really is; this means for each one of us a different thing, differing as widely as the phases of student activity upon which each puts the emphasis of his effort 'and-his attainment. Therefore, complete and fair as we have sought to be, perhaps no department of this Annual will have received the space and attention those particularly interested in it would like to see.
Perhaps that it should please all, do justice to all sides of our life here, Would be to expect too much of this little book, that has felt so many times during its growth the stern repressing hand of the printers' bills.
Think of it rather in this wise, good master reader, that it is to the college the history of an added year, that to the alumni it is the inspiration for reminiscing on years that lie within their own college times, dearer, because they are their own, than ours can be, and that finally it is to the undergraduates themselves only the tangible, frame-work of names and faces and college deeds around which each shall build the true Forester, - his own fuller, more personal and more vivid memory of this year of his college course.
