Drinking fountain donated by the Class of 1957.
"The Class of '57 fountain near the Senior rose garden is almost completed and ready for use according to John Davies, project chairman. Davies said that as soon as the sign is carved and several small alterations are made, the fountain will be open for student use. The dedication will be a part of the May Day ceremonies. The fountain is the gift of the class of 1957 to the college. John pointed out that by undertaking their own masonry the seniors saved themselves several hundred dollars. Helping the class to Install this new fountain was Streeter Arnett, pastor from one of the Newberg churches. Streeter Arnett laid the brick for the college signs three years ago*. John Davis put the professional finish on the cement cups on the fountains. "We did quite a bit of shopping around" in selecting the materials for the fountain, Davies said. He also said that the class was "well satisfied" with the plumbing fixtures for the project. ' The alumni will now fill the flower planter in the center of the fountain."
