VALEDICTORY Mr. Superintendent, Mr. Chairman, Members of the Board of Education, Members of the Berlin High Faculty, Parents, Friends, and Classmates: Over a comparatively short period of years we have striven to fill the kettle of knowledge to overflowing. Each of us has followed a recipe which seemed to have potential value to our future. Year followed year in rapid succession as we gradually added, according to our individual initiative, ingredients of varying qualities. Many chose the secretarial training, for it stood out as being immediately useful. Then armed with the virtues of patience and industry, they plunged into the task of learning the skills and demands of t he swiftly running tide of business. The more fortunate members chose the classical studies which were to prepare them for college. Theirs was a task which required much application and seemed to have no definite goal for which to strive. Those who had not the means nor the liking for either the business or college work chose a course of subjects which would provide them with a general knowledge which is useful in various fields. During this time the world had seemed unreal and far-distant. But as we watched our upper-classmen step out onto life’s impersonal path, our ideas changed and took on a more mature aspect. Finally in this last year of high school days we realized that to our kettle had been added the major part of the ingredients whose quality we were eager to perfect. Therefore, we put all our energy into the task of seasoning. W e practiced manners; did our work with increased diligence; and enlisted the aid of capable teachers to till the requirements and demands of higher training schools and employers. Soon most of us will begin the work of ladling out the contents of our kettle of knowledge to the world and our fellow beings. It is only what we have put in that we will be able to give. Each new barrier that we face and overcome in the future will replace and double that knowledge that was gained during these years. We are overcome by the realization that this is a turning point in our lives — that the next few months or years will be a struggle of conforming and adjusting our lives to new situations. Many of us are eager to throw off the shackles that bound us to our task; some of us have fears that the world will reject our offering. For twelve years we have dreamed and planned. Our opportunity to materialize these vague dreams is near at hand. Shall we go forward with a high purpose and strong determination to find our place in the world? Will we strive to live up to our ideals? Will we do our duty to God, parents, and country? The answers, fellow graduates, lie with you. You are armed with the talent, personality, and character which will stand the test of a critical and commanding world. On my lips is a sincere and heartfelt farewell, my classmates, and my heart has a fervent wish that we will all find our chosen vocation. FBANCES KBIWAC.K1
