'Cliffe Has Formal Opening

Radcliffe's 81st year began officially yesterday with the formal opening of the College at 4 p.m. in the Cambridge Congregational Church. Addressing students in the College and the Radcliffe Graduate School were Kathleen O. Elliott, dean of Instruction, Janet Webster '59, president of the Student Government Association, and Wilbur K. Jordan, president of the College.

President Jordan said in part, "Radcliffe College exists for only one purpose--to provide that beneficent and civilizing discipline which is the virility of education.... You have come here not to find a husband, but to gain an education. Tend then to the education, for the getting of a husband will take care of itself."
