[Dear Miss]

[How hard it is to put down on paper the influence one person has had over another. Yet I can see in my own teaching and philosophy and in that of my Ursinus friends the basic groundwork which you gave us. You have us very strong feelings about such a variety of things such as gum chewing, speaking of the English language and most important of all, sportsmanship. These will stay with me all my life. I feel it has been a great privilege to have been one of your students. You have given women's athletics a great tradition and we all are thankful for it.]

[I wish you the very best with your coming retirement and hope you have many happy years to enjoy it.]


[Gail B. Allebach '64]
