Dear Friends of the Graduating Class:
Your editor of the Silver and Blue has asked for a letter.
There is so much one would like to write, but words do not
always tell what we feel. I want to express to each of you my
heartfelt thanks for your ready co-operation and happy loyalty
in the days that have passed and again to call your attention
to the verse of John Oxenham:
"But to every man there openeth
A way, and ways, and a way,
And the high soul climbs the high way
And the low soul gropes the lowg
And in between, on the misty flats,
The rest drift to and fro.
"But to every man there openeth
A high way and a low,
And every man decideth
The way his soul shall go."
Sincerely your friend,
S. H. COOK

DEAN OF WOMEN
Thls IS a year of real h1stor1c lmportance ln the Berry Schools
To be a member of the flrst class to be graduated from the Berry
College IS a hlgh honor You are the slfted few and of you
we expect great thmgs
To the Hlgh School Senlors I w1ll say that I am happy to
fmd that a large number of you plan to go on to college Some
of you wlll work next fall and enter college 1n the sprmg Some
of you w1ll take pos1t1ons now and come back later to college
Some w1ll not go to college, and th1s 1S as lt should be L1fe
offers many openlngs to young people ln dlfferent flelds of
servlce Not every boy and glrl should go to college There are
other act1v1t1es open to you ln wh1ch you can be as useful as ln
A recent vxsltor a professor 1n one of the eastern Umversltles,
sa1d I thlnk you have here at the Berry Schools the funda
mental thmgs as the b3SlS of your educatlonal plan Unhapplly
one cannot say that for some of our so called great un1vers1t1es
The state dlrector of Vocat1onal Home Economlcs v1s1t1ng
us recently, told us that one of the f1nest pleces of work she had
seen m GeOFgla IS belng done by two of our Hxgh School
graduates, one of our boys who marrled one of our girls Together
these two are teach1ng 1n a needy commumty and workmg
among the mothers and fathers as well as the chlldren and
brlngmg a new llfe mto the whole settlement She sald that no
pralse IS too h1gh for that k1nd of Splrlt When she asked them
how they came to be lnterested ln that k1nd of communlty
bulldmg they replled Thxs IS the sort of work Mlss Berry
wanted us to do
C C Peters, an authorlty on Educatlonal Soclology says
There IS no type of tra1n1ng that one needs for success 1n any
aspect of llfe that 1S not the schools proper concern It IS not
1ts prlvxlege to draw 1tself up w1th1n the l1m1ts of a tradxtlonal
currlculum and say these other thmgs do not belong to me
If they perta1n to fltness for effectlve l1v1ng, whether related
to health, wealth, soc1ab1l1ty, knowledge beauty, or nghtness,
and 1f they can be lmproved at all through tra1n1ng they do be
long to the school
Students gomg out from Berry, the thmgs that you have seen
and heard and have been made to feel at Berry you wxll flnd
a real preparatlon for the buslness of l1v1ng I wlsh for you each
one not an easy place 1n llfe, but a place where you can be
useful, and 1f you are useful, I know you wlll be happy
