Several students have recently discussed with me the question of whether to
remain in school until graduation or to enlist in some branch of the service. I
would urge you all, boys and girls alike, to remain in school until you graduate.
High school graduation today is considered essential in order to enter any of the
numerous civil service positions that are open in cities, counties, states, and in
the Federal government. Private business concerns are now filling all ot their
important positions with high school or college graduates. The leaders in all
branches of the armed services are asking students to remain in high school
until graduation. Only high school graduates are allowed to go to higher institu-
tions oi learning.
Graduation from high school usually means that the graduate has assumed
responsibility for acquiring certain skills and knowledges that will aid him in his
work and in his contact with others. It means, too, that he has accepted responsi-
bility for self-control, self-direction, and for self-discipline.
It is important for your own self-esteem to finish that which you have started,
so once again I urge you to complete your high school education.
To Miss Wilson and Miss Shockey, faculty advisors, to Bill Dowd, editor,
Bobby Cooper, assistant editor, Carole Rath, art editor, Mike Prenter, business
manager, and to the entire Acorn staff, l extend my thanks and appreciation for
the difficult task of producing the 1951 Acorn.
