My congratulations eve extended to the members of the senior
class for satisfactorily completing your high school training.
For twelve years you have been preparing yourselves that, you
m1ght,more efficiently and intelligently take your place in soc -
iety. 'To many of you these formal days of training are past. The
future, as the brilliant rising sun in the early hours of the
morning, now rises before you.
A phillsopher once divided people into classesg the tough--
minded and the tender-minded. The tough-m1nded.he called the re-
alists. They see matters not as they wish they were but as they
are. They set out to grapple with them as they are, which is the
first step to make them what they wish they were. They have con-
fidence in themselves, and they depend upon themselves.
The tender-minded see matters not as they are but as they
wish they were. They are looking for improvement to come from
some helpful influence outside themselves. They are the perpet-
ual wearers of rose-colored glasses. They want gain without risk
honor without sacrifice, security without denial, profit without
investment, ease without toil, progress without pain. They don't
want to pay.
Each age has had these two classes of people. The world will
always have them. Our country was built, developed and will go
forward to even greater accomplishments by the realists, who see
matters as they are, not as they wish them to be. The pioneers
who struggled westward over barren prairies with their oxen and
covered wagons had visions that their efforts, planning and hard
work would transform these barren prairies to the land of their
dreams. They were tough-minded realists who were willing to pay
the price. U
Each age has its opportunities and its problems. Has the
world no needs today? Are all the tasks finished, all the new
ones hbegun? Is there no need for courage, for diligence, for
understanding, for invention, for self-reliance, for leadership ?
Have we found the perfect solution of all our problems, for un-
employment, for justice as between all men, for unity among all
people? Has everyone everything he wants?' Are there no better
ways of making things, of making better things, or of making
more things for more people? Viewed in this light the world
never presented more opportunities.
As the years go by may this ARGO help perpetuate the cher-
ished friendships that you have formed among students and teacher
May it help recall the ideals that you have been taught and serve
as an inspiration to make your life rich and your contributions
many and precious.
