The HARDROCK Vol. XII. No. II. November : 1945 : December ALUMNI NEWS LETTER Edited and Prepared by Guy E. March Alumni President's Letter .... Fellow Alumni: It is a pleasure to greet you. You are graduates of a mighty fine school. From its begining the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology has been a great school; even when it was a very small institution and when both the faculty and students were few in numbers, the quality of the school was outstanding. As a graduate who has returned to Rapid City after thirty-six years, I feel that the growth of the school has been truly striking. There are several new buildings with splendid up-to-date equipment, a much needed gymnasium, an enlarged and improved museum, an experimental station, and the O'Harra Stadium with athletic field � all on an extended and beautifully landscaped campus. Only by seeing these improvements and additions can they be appreciated. The Alumni Association is planning a Homecoming Day for its members� this event will take place about the middle of August, 1946. Our very capable and hard-working secretary, Guy March, will give you the date and details as time goes on. It is our intention that everyone who attends shall enjoy every minute of his stay. So begin now to include, in your 1946 vacation plans, a trip to the Black Hills and Rapid City in order not to miss "Homecoming Day". It takes a lot of money to operate a school such as the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. This money mostly comes from the taxpayers who must be kept continuously informed about the school's work and its progress. Publicity is the answer. Publicity will bring in students as well as money and certainly these are essential to any thriving school. The greatest single boost to a school's reputation can be given by its alumni. In our own case it should be our aim to advertise the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology for what it is � that is, one of the best engineering schools to be found anywhere. Every alumnus should be a publicity agent. To all of you who were in the armed services of our Country and particularly to those who are still waiting in far away places to get home I wish to extend very special greetings. There are 57 of our alumni who made the supreme sacrifice in the late war. May we never forget to honor them with deepest reverence and gratitude. November 12, 1945 HERBERT N.
