GOVERNOR FRANK B. WILLIS
The people of Ada are proud that their town is the home
of the man who occupies the Governor's chair, and as a High
School we are proud of our village, and proud of our fellow-
citizen who has had the highest honor in the state conferred
Mr. Willis is a gentleman of fine education, agreeable
temperament, untiring industry, and noble character, and his
example and influence should inspire us and spur us on to
greater and nobler things.

STATE OF OHIO
March I6, l9l5.
To the Senior Class of the Ada High School :-
You ask me to say a word to my good young friends who
graduate this year and it is a pleasure to respond. Commencement
period is one of the happy events of a lifetime and while I should prefer
to add to the pleasure of the occasion rather than to add to its serious-
ness with counsel, yet there is much that may he said along this line.
Education and mental equipment are not the only requisites of success.
More essential than either is application. Success comes only through
earnest endeavor. Following the line of the least resistance will result
in small reward, while persistence and tireless effort coupled with initia-
tive and self reliance will inevitably bring triumph.
Be good natured and congenial. Do your work with a will.
Another great factor is friendship. Choose friends who will be
of help, but bear in mind that friendships must be mutual. To have
good friends you must he a friend. Have confidence in your friends
and win their confidence in you. You have the power but not the right
to break down confidence your friends place in you. E
Patience is a virtue to be achieved. Do not expect all things to
come your way at once. Keep on striving and never lose hope. Look
back over your past. Recall the great number of things over which you
worried that never occurred at all.
Keep clean, mentally and otherwise, keep busy, keep posted, keep
good company and keep faith. Keep close to the teachings of your
childhood days. Some one has said "that he who keeps on good terms
with himself and his God is safe."
Very truly your friend,
GOVERNOR FRANK B. WiLLis
