Graduation day, to which seniors have looked forward for many years, sometimes brings with it some trepidation, mingled with the joy of achievement. It is suddenly driven home that from this moment forth, you will be confronted with important, independent decisions for the rest of your lives, with less opportunity and less desire to lean on the judgment of teachers and parents. It becomes critical, then, to real- ize fully the seriousness of your new obligations. The dramatic Presidential election that we have lived through last year highlights the importance of individual re- sponsibility in situations where we are sometimes all too prone to feel that the actions of one person in a large group are not significant. In one of the most hotly fought campaigns in our national history, we were made to realize on how slim a margin of votes the commitment of many states' electoral votes hinged. The ulti- mate tally of a plurality of less than 113,000 for President Kennedy over Mr. Nixon, out of almost 69,000,000 votes, emphasizes this point even more, especially when it is realized that President Kennedy received less than half the popular vote because of ballots cast for minor candidates. As we translate this situation into terms that affect our individual personal lives, we become more aware of the superficial thinking that often persuades us merely to go along with the crowd. We must recognize the vital importance of thought- fully weighing pros and cons to arrive at a considered decision, and then, of summoning the moral courage to abide by that decision. As Emerson put it in his "Essay on Self-Relianceu: 'glt is easy in the world to live after the worldas opinion, it is easy in solitude to live after our own, but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitudef, If, as you refiect on your high school training, you feel that you have grown in the ability to decide between right and wrong in basic moral issues, to discrimi- nate between stronger and weaker arguments in moments of crisis, where there is much to be said on both sides, and to suspend judgment where you lack sufficient data to come to a valid conclusion, you will be justifiably proud of one of the most precious powers that any human being can develop. As you face adult decisions from here on, may you have cause to be grateful to Jackson for the opportunities afforded you in democratic thinking and living, so that you will not merely grow older as the years go by but more mature as per- sonalities.

MR. MILTON BLATT Most of us know Mr. Blatt, who has been at An- drew Jackson for twenty-three years, in at least one of the many facets of his busy career.
