We ' re sorry we kept you waiting so long, but, believe us, we couldn ' t help it. It was a long, hard pull. Thanks to Sara Simpich, " Mack " Mcintosh, Mel Leonard, Lois Fessen- den. Sheila Young, and all the rest who lost sleep over this project. That ' s why this is no dream book. To all of you who have so patiently and frequently inquired, " hHow ' s the 1946 Aucola coming?, " we ' re glad to be able to say, " It ' s come! " ALICE LUNDEGAARD A Thought for Your Future As you are about to set the capstone upon one portion of your preparation for the future, we wish you success and happiness. The world needs new people with new ideas; particularly so if they are skillful enough to adjust themselves so their new ideas fit into the American Way of Life. To do this, you will need adaptability, cre- ative ability, and the wisdom of experience. This thought is well expressed in these lines: " God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to distinguish between the two.
