Death and Reality
Three University students didn't answer to roll
call Monday morning. They were dead victims of
fatal highway acefdents over the past weekend.
It is both shocking and tragic that young lives
can be extinguished in such a short period of time.
The thin line that separates the living from the
dead is made up of minutes and miles, seconds and
feet; it is composed of speed, carelessness end
Neither admonition nor rebuke will aid three
of our classmates, but it would be wise indeed if the
University community would note and remember
this past weekend. Words or phrases, without mean
ing, usually have little effect on students, but
reality in its tragic frankness may have some result.
There is an ultimate reality in death and wasted
