It is with great pleasure that the Journal Staff
and the january and june classes of 1956 dedicate
this year book, a product of their combined efforts,
to the senior advisers and teachers who gave un-
selfishly of their time and effort to make this
senior year a rewarding one. This is just a small
measure of thanks we owe to them, without whose
unselfish contributions and helpful suggestions our
many plans and projects would never have been

The Oracle at Delphi once gazed into a steaming fissure in the earth,
and, lo, before his eyes appeared images of things to come. Unhappily that
crack in the ground has long since disappeared and with it the fabled for-tune
teller. Today if someone had oracular powers, we graduates might inquire as
to our fate in the future. Such a question would be especially noteworthy in
view of the public's opinion of the youth of today.
It has been difficult for our Class of 1956 to live in this chaotic time when
our contemporaries have become society's number one target for criticism.
We have worked diligently to overcome the screaming headlines and whispered
rumors, but it. often appears to be a losing battle against an evergrowing tide
of -misplaced sentiment. Perhaps only in the future can we prove to our
elders that they were wrong about us.
Gur class will provide America with good honest citizens, just as scores
of graduating classes before us have done. The odds are against our pro-
ducing another Einstein, Emerson, or Ruth-but we might. We will become
part of the American Scene and have our share of lawyers, steel-workers, and
businessmen. We will witness the approach of the Final VVar and try to avoid
it while jealously guarding our freedom. Our ultimate goal is peaceg and,
if We obtain it in any measure, our lives will have had purpose. Our expecta-
tions and ambitions will be gigantic, but inevitably we will be satisfied to
achieve one-tenth of them. Our fears complete with Atomic Age complica-
tions will be comparable to those our parents experienced. If we are wise,
we will allow them to help us over these familiar rough spots. If our children
prove to be another "problem" generation, we will help and defend them in
their time of need. We will learn that health and contentment are precious
and we shall prize them as long as they are ours. In summation we will be
guiding our footsteps, alone, and we hope to follow the right paths.
The Bible states that "Our lives are but a shadow between two eternitiesf'
but we hope that they shall be meaningful and sweet with the fruits of success
