19121 THE CRITERION 9
Some Marks of Growth
Another sehool year is ending. And as it
passes into history, one naturally asks Whether
any progress has been made. If there have
been any victories, any triumphs, what are
they? In these times when iinprovenient and
has contributed its full quota to the growth of
previous years. ln the following paragraphs
reasons for this belief will be stated as tersely

ment ot' human aetivity, the school and the

10 THE ORITERION
Issued by Students of Ardmore High School
This issue of THE CRITERION is the last
under the present' management. It will be
henceforth under a different and a more coin-
petent editor. In looking back over the year's
work, the editor now sees many places where
improvement could have been inade, yet our
ability will be judged, 11ot by what we could
have done, but by what we have done. If we
have been able to put out a magazine of which
you are proud, then good and well, and we
deserve no credit other than that given to any
one who 'does his duty. But if we have not
given you a paper which is a credit to our
school, then we deserve the censure which al-
ways follows uncreditable work. However, we
have no apologies to make, nor excuses to give.
The work has been a pleasure. The editor
has had no reason to complain at any time,
for the members of the staff have worked long
and faithfully. Pleasure has been given up
for their editorial work. The work has, indeed,
been a pleasure and a privilege.
In behalf of the staff, I want to thank the
students of the high school for the interest
they have continuously manifested in our
work. You have been behind the undertaking,
and made it a pleasure for the staff to work,
for they felt that it was something worth
while. Also, I want to thank the faculty for
the interest they have shown in our work. No
one person, no set of persons, however coin-
petent, can successfully carry through this
work without their help and encouragement.
Just one word more: IVhen this paper is
under the new management, next year, feel,
as you have never before, that THE CRITERIQJN
is yours and published for you. Push as you
have never before pushed, make for higher
and nobler things in the school life, and say
that your school journal shall be better each
year, by helping all you can.
The final, word: I thank you for the great
honor you have given me during my school
lifeg I thank the staff for the advice and help
they have given, and the teachers, for their
patience with me, and the public in general
for their many encouraging words.
The monarch may forget the crown
That on his head so late hath been:
The bridegroom may forget the bride
XVas made his own but yester e'eng
The mother may forget the babe
That smiled so sweetly on her knee,
But forget thee will I ne'er,
And all thou hast done for ine.
