+ Go, little Book, your time has come to journey Among the friends who joyous welcome give. Unfold your pages - show to them our efforts That" Normal" days may e'er in memory live. Recall with joy the youthful recollections Of days gone by, that will return no more. Revive for us the scenes that picture "Norlllal " In those light-hearted, happy days of yore. And when O ld Age sha ll lay the telling finger That leaves a mark upon each youthful brow, Be then, 0 Book! a comrade in the Evening That seems so far away and distant now.

m~t ]l'uruttnuul ~tltinrn The recognition of vocational education as an absolute necessity, and the eve r- increas– ing demand for trained instructors, in conjunction with the stirring world-wide events of the three years during which we have prepared for vocational teadling, have more than proved the ..vise fore thought of the authorities of the Buffalo State Normal School in organi:t.ing the evening vocation al classes. Tht~ir decision was made at a time whcll this policy was not looked upon in the lig:ht of present circumstances, and when vocational edu– cation seemed but a' fad or fancy of the vocational world. Today, however, it stands in a fair way to become the prominent factor in-education. Throu~h our contact with the maste r mechanics, Lf we may use the term, of the teach– ing profession, as represented b~r the Faculty of the school, we feel that we have mastered a !lew trade. While it is true that we arc read)' to enter new fields of endeavo r, we have not, however, the tradi t ional misgivings of graduates about to ente r upon the wo rld 's wo rk, since we have all been dail y engaged in that work for a number of )'earS, even while pre– paring ourselves for this new and worthy phase of effort. Not a few of us have even prac– ticed the art of teaching, perhaps clumsily and falteringly, when as journeymen we aided OUf helpers and app renciccs to master the t rade. From this experience we have I'eadil )' seen the necessity for more effici ent methods of instruction, and morc favorable cond ition :, fo r offering better opportunities .to the com ing generation of worke rs. Our work at the Nor– mal School has enabled us to sec the reason for our fanner shortcomings, and has helped liS to n~cognize the problems before us, and to make us mo re capablc of meeting them. We hope to give to all who come under our influence dw samc feel ing of security felt hy us. ' -Ve cannot, nor do we w ish to solve the problems of Ollr pupils, hut we do hope to lead them to see some of the difficulties that thev will meet with when they pass beyond our reach. We shall strive to make them cap:lblc of overcoming thei r- diOicul ties in orde r to bridge thc gap bet\veen the wo rld and the schoolroom so th at the re shnlt be no stepping out of one into the other, but the} shall he or.e.
