There may be no
frills in Livonia Ed-
ucation but there is
plenty of frosting.
The Livonia Board of
Education is pre-
sented with a cake
in recognition of
th e i r outstanding
work in the field of
education. Mr, Gene
Ehrstine, a Livonia
teacher, makes the
board members Mr.
H. E. Nelson, treas-
urer, Mr. Claude
S n a r e y, secretary,
Mr. A. Ward McCain,
president, Mr. L.
trustee, and Mr.
Lo n n i e Brashear,
"Actions speak louder than words," is an old
proverb which can apply to the Livonia Board
of Education. These five men are definitely men
of action. The many additions to our present
schools and the additional new constructions
prove that the children and their educational
welfare are utmost in the minds of the boards

Traditionally we wish good luck to the
seniors and feel sad that they are leaving
the protection of high school to enter the
hard business world. Once again our students
are graduating, but in this year of missiles
and satellites, we can only say "Good-bye",
and envy you your youth and your ability to
be a part of this exciting new age.
You will see things we cannot imagine.
You will do things we have not dreamed of
doing Meanwhile we will hope our small
part of the future-your high school educa-
tion was worthwhile, for now even you will
realize how desperately knowledge is needed.
The one of you who will travel in space will
be thankful he learned to measure distances
by geometry. The nuclear physicist will never
cease relying on his basic algebra, and the
English and foreign language students will
be grateful to be able to express themselves
to the people of this shrinking world.
We still wish you luck, but do not rely on
luck You, today's graduates, need more than
luck to survive, individually or as a race. Use
whatever you can from your education at
Bentley High School, and try, try very hard,
to straighten out this world, so that institu-
tions like Bentley High School, and graduating
classes might survive.

The smooth operation of a large institution
can usually be traced to the directors. Mr.
Benton Yates, superintendent, Mr. Harold
Wells, assistant superintendent, and Mr. Cecil
Alford, principal, are the key men in the
progress and advancement of Bentley High
School. With the assistance of Mr. William
Warren and Mr. David Amerman, Mr. Alford
carefully molds his staff of 7I teachers into
a well-organized unit working toward one
goal, a complete education for each student.
Each year the increased enrollment brings new
problems which are quickly and expertly
solved. This year Bentley had an enrollment
of 1296, an increase of 299 students over
Mr. Alford discusses blueprints of Bentley changes for
l958-59 with Mr. Warren and Mr. Amerman.
