''I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth." These words of the 121st Psalm come to my mind as I am about to speak the first word at the beginning of our new scholastic year, the 102d year in the history of our institution. I know of no better watchword for our students and for our instructors in these very serious and distressing times in the world, which affect also our Church and may affect our institution to a lesser or greater degree. Let us all make it a matter of our daily thought and prayer. Then we can also rest assured that the gracious promise contained in the same psalm will become true with us: ''The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil; He shall preserve thy soul.
