Funeral --." _ rtA«- rrim I--,1 C* »«Af tVi^-wAff^o v 92WiUard Seniors Attend Service Calling on a quotation from Isiah -- "Look to the Reck from were hewn"---Rev. Howard L. Jfluberidall, D.D., headmaster of Mount Hebron School, last night told 92 Emma Willard School seniors "never fear to look back on your school days." He urged them to look back on their school days because "it is your heritage, it can be your destiny." Through the act of remembrance, Dr. Rubendall said, "you will gain the fruit of the years of work and toil here;." Dr. Rubendall preached the sermon and conducted the* baccalaureate service at the Emma Willard Chapel. For the white-clad seniors, the service meant the last time, as students, they would attend a religious sendee in the school's chapel. Graduation is Sunday afternoon. On looking back to the past Dr. Rubendall said: "Never fear such sentimentalism or be ashamed of it. A generation which fears being sentimental about the .past has lost its mooring, for such sentiment is the recognition by the human heart that truth is linked to history.'' He continued, "if you have been sensitive and alert you cannot have missed the challenge of the person of Christ, for surely, out of your Bible study and worship has risen this person of Christ. You cannot have missed Him. I charge you now to make Him pre-eminent in your lives." Dr. Rubendall said minds trained in the liberal tradition are needed at times likes these, when the country "is in danger of demagogues." He pointed to Mrs. Mildred McAfee Horton, president of Wellsley College, as one of the victims of the times. He said Mrs. Horton's appointment to a government post was held up because there was fear that her position as a liberal might unleash the forces of demagoguery. He declared that the "excellent curriculum (of E m m a Willard School) was designed to train your mind to cope with the complex problems of your day. You have minds that are free." But Dr. Rubendall also told the girls that discipline and order is needed in the world, beacuse without it, "we could not live in harmony with others or at peace with ourselves." He~said;~- ii Youhg people have a divine right to be disciplined in order to have the privilege of the pursuit of happiness." Dr. Rubendall gave the invocation and pronounced benediction. The Emma Willard choir sang during the service.

JOSEPH FULEP WILLIAM MEINCKE DEWET T, ADAMS ALBERTSALZMAN A. LINCOLN SCOTT said, "Where are we to acquire ntegrity? How are we to learn to ive together happily and harmoniously with others? There is no echnique to compare with the re- igious discipline. The great maser of the art of living is Christ; ie great and real transformer of ife is Christ." Former Faculty Member. "When men and women come under His influence, daily lift up heir hearts and minds in loyalty o Him, get to know His will and seek His grace to do it, they have ound the deepest bond of community," Mr. McKay, who is pas;or of the First Presbyterian Church of Binghamton and a for- ner member of the college faculty, continued. "And the anatomy of tolerance will be seen and heard .n the good-humored laughter of neighbors, their respect and know- .edge of one another, and their in- :egrity in following with single- learted devotion their vision of .vhat this earth, might be." The invocation and benediction was given by Rev. S. Edward Young, pastor of the church. "The problem of living together, ;he failure of all of us in varying degree to solve that problem, runs through, every level of life, and every area, from the difficulties parents have with their children and children with their parents right up to the wide-spread dissension and consequent confusion of the international situation today. Wisdom in Old Saying. "Now, part of our basic difficulty is that we take ourselves too seriously, are uereft of any glimmering of fun, have never looked n the mirror and laughed at ourselves. There is a let of homely, practical wisdom in the saying of an old Negro preacher: If you could jist sit on the fence and see yourself pass by, you'd die laughing at the sight.' To live happily and harmonious- y with ourselves, we have to learn :o know ourselves; we have to try ,o reason with ourselves; we have .0 be able to laugh at ourselves. To live happily and harmoniously h others xve have to teach our- sel^es to see the amusing side of a situation; we have to cultivate a ense of humor, gentle, genial and unsoured. I am not talking about ;atire or sarcasm for they can vound or leave- scars. I am not :alking about wit, for it can be Three Troy Priests Say First Masses Three residents of Troy and two former Trojans celebrated their first solemn masses yesterday.

The pair reportedly took off earl- er in the day from the Schenectady. Airport in a plane owned by the Capital Flying Service of that city, operated by Joseph Marino. Just prior to the crash it was reported that the light plane had been flying very low over Fort Edward and Fort Miller, either because of engine trouble or because the pilot had lost his bearings.

He stated that people can !ace pain and suffering in three ways, by running away from it, pretending it isn't there, and third to face it as a reality. Dr. Adams stressed the importance of faith, regardless of creed, in helping all persons to stand their suffering and speed them on their way to recovery. He emphasized the part which nurses can play in having a strong faith themselves and in passing it on to others. The speaker at tonight's com mencement wiii be John 0.
