In Memory
Of Roosevelt
Pausing with a nation filled with
mourners for the late President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, coeds in
summer cottons, men students, and
a sprinkling of uniformed men at
tended a short memorial service at
1 p.m. Saturday on the grassy lawn
of the women’s quadrangle.
Voices of the vesper choir, led by
Helen Luvaas, broke the stillness
of the clear spring air when they
sang “Bless the Lord, Oh My Soul,”
and “My God and I.” Audrey Holli

editorial written by Peggy Over

led the assembled group in singing
the “Star Spangled Banner,” they
quietly filed from the sunny, peace

of Mr. Roosevelt has cast upon this
world is not that of a nation nor
even of a race, for we can rightly
say that he belonged to no one
country nor to a people,” Miss
Holliday said.
Roosevelt Belongs to Ages
“Mr. Roosevelt holds the peculiar
and singular position of now be
longing not only to the ages, but
also to the peoples of the entire
world, for in the present struggle
he has made of himself a force
among the Allied nations not light
ly to be forgotten or replaced . . .”

land’s editorial, Miss Holliday said:
