Yankton Press & Dakotan
4 June 1938 (Evening); p. 6, col. 5
Dr. and Mrs. G. W. Nash were host and hostess at a reception to the senior students of Yankton college, faculty members and their wives, yesterday evening in Look Hall.
The traditional pre-commencement proceedings were opened with a brief word of welcome by Dr. Nash who acted as toastmaster for the occasion. He called upon Donald Frick and Winifred Andrews to sing. Dr. G. H. Durand, vice president of the college, was then introduced. Dr. Durand gave a quaint and humorous opening. He told those in attendance what a fine friend Dr. Nash has been to all of the students and faculty for the length of time that he has been president of the college, and and how Dr. Nash has been an unusually close friend to him for a much longer period than that. Dr. Nash and Dr. Durand were classmates together at Yankton college. Other speakers were as follows: Douglas Dunham, Miss Clara P. Swain, Miss Winifred Andrews, Dr. Lee N. Dailey, Miss Betty Nichol, Dr. Paul Schubert, Harry Pfeiff, William C. Lang, Gene Farrell, Coach Carl Youngworth, Bernard Beck, Miss Frances Dunham, Miss Barbara Bates, Dr. H. H. Savage, Martin Zitz, and Chester A. Beaver, superintendent of schools. Marguerite Tiede played a violin solo.
Refreshments of ices, cakes, and nuts were served under the direction of Mrs. Nash.
