B F A Mercury
WE, THE Class of 1948, take pleasure in dedicating this our
Senior Yearbook to Miss Germaine M. Perrault, the only
teacher with the distinction of having taught continuously
at Bellows Free Academy since its doors were first opened in
1930. During that period she has contributed much in time and
ejort for the betterment of the school. The Student Council is
indebted to her for valuable guidance and advice on hnancial
problems, and as a result of her similar duties as business adviser
of the Mercury, ufe are able to finance our school publication.
Above all, Miss Perrault has built up and maintained the high
reputation of the business course of our school and has proved
her sincere interest in her students by helping many of them to
find good positions after graduation.

Giving Our Best
Boys and girls may not have the physique, the ambition or the will to work,
yet We are like a group of track men. There are some of us who are always victors
and a certain few who Hash through with an occasional triumph. Then, as in any
race, there are those of us who are "also-ransv and the ones who had to stagger
to reach the finish line.
As the track men at present are training for their biggest race, the Olympics,
so We have now completed preparation for our big race, the race of life. Our
training will determine how we shall fare in life unless we get a sudden surge of
energy. But where are we to get this immediate force? The only solution is by
directing our own studies and bettering ourselves to a point where we are satified
or very nearly so.
How do we study alone? There are perhaps two chief methods that we
can try, by observation and by reading. Scientists through the ages have made
startling discoveries which have revamped the world. We do not claim to be
honored with future Pasteurs and Edisons, but there is a great deal that we can
study and understand.
Abe Lincoln is perhaps the greatest example of what reading can do for
a man. Deprived of school, he educated himself on borrowed literature and went
on to become our great sixteeth president of the United States.
Now we are about to leave our high school days behind us and go out to
make our place in the world. We may wish that we had worked harder and ac-
complished more, for it is understood that a task well done at the appointed time
makes later responsibilities easier and prepares us to grasp opportunities when
they come. However in spite of our failures and weaknesses we know that we of
the class of 1948 will give to the world the best that we have and the best will
come back to us.
