College Days, 1946

Here are a few pages from the Desert of 1947-51. After looking forward to going to the University, "all my life" at age 18 there I was, a student! Those grown-up people I saw on campus when I was a child no longer looked so old; each year when I go back to campus, the students look younger and younger.
