Marlin V. MacLaughlin Superintendent of Schools Kenneth L. Mackenzie Principal To the Members of the Class of 1947: Congratulations to each of you. You have com- pleted your public school education, and have attained a high school diploma. That diploma shows that you have completed twelve years of work in school. It does not, and cannot, indicate what you have earned during that time. You have a reward, but only time can measure its value. Your parents and your school have worked with you to make the most of the opportunities offered. What you accomplish in life will prove the extent to which their efforts, and yours, have been successful. With confidence in your ability, and with faith in your efforts, I bid you Godspeed. To the Members of the Class of 1947: The graduating class of 1947 is to be congratu- lated upon the successful completion of four years of high school work at a time when the doors of opportunity in American life are again open. You entered high school at a time of unpre- cedented world-wide strife and distress. The strain and hardship are now at an end. The very magnitude and acuteness of the na- tional and international distress of the recent past have increased the need for intelligent and skilled workmanship in every field of human en- deavor. Your opportunities for human service are manifold. As you leave the shelter of your homes and high school to face the problems of the world, remem- ber that we are all interested in you and in what you do with your life. We trust that you will, in the words of Horace Mann, “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity. " 5

Something that has never before been tried in publish- ing a yearbook at Berlin High School is the addition of adver- tising. This advertising was added to partially defray the expense of the other improvements. I sincerely hope that this 1947 Lamp will bring back many fond memories of Berlin High School, and that it will continue to please its readers in years to come. Bernard Brennan Editor-in-Chief Ronald Griggs Business Manager Betty Ann Fitzgerald Secretary Katherine Vandrilla Florence Pajor Marceline Allario Typists Charles Vigra Patricia Gould Junior Representatives Miss Elizabeth McBrien Faculty Adviser 7
