Memorial Plaque Unveiled Sunday
A large marble plaque, commemorating the University's 697 students, alumni, and faculty members who died during World War II, was unveiled in Memorial Church this Sunday. The plaque is of cream, Champville marble, and covers half the south wall of the church.
A commemorative service was held in the morning, in connection with the ceremony, and the Right Reverend Henry Knox Sherrill, Presiding Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church in America, preached the sermon. Bishop Sherrill condemned a recent tendency to speak of the futility of sacrifices made in the Second World War, and warned that though we were now faced with a new danger we should not forget our deliverance from an earlier one.
