I wonder if the average person realizes the many wonderful privileges that we have and appreciates them. The right to work so that we may own our own home is a privilege that is not enjoyed by the people in some countries in this world. I think it is a great privilege to be able to have this home wherever we want lt. The one who chooses a farm may live on a farm and the one who pre- fers life in a city may live an urban life. We can choose our own course of study in school, then choose our own orofession and the nlace of higher education that will give us the necessary training. Many scholarshius are offered today for those of us who measure up to them. Do you know that in some countries only a few are allowed to even consider nrofesslonal training? If we stop to consider the priceless gifts we have, we will want to try harder to keep this way of life alive and to further these priv- ileges for the young neoole in America. There is only one way to Dreserve these privileges. The pub- lic alone, through the gradual education of the individual as a citizen, can bring about many improvements in each community so that they will vent a better way of life for each generation. This can be brought about but slowly if we educate only a few. Even if your sons and daughters are not going to oursue a pro- fessional education, they will be better citizens and better home- makers if they receive a good education. From the intelligent voting of the people in the small towns comes the political power that elects the office-holders of the state and of the nation. These are the lawmakers who are going to bring about the reforms necessary to improve education, government and society. All of these resnonsibillties will soon rest uoon the shouldera of the young people of today. Let us rally to the call of duty with youthful vigor and enthusiasm. In leaving I just want to wish all the under-graduates the best of luck in the future. Get all the education and all the pleasure possible from every minute of your school days. There will never be another such opportunity for you. To the teacher I want to say thank you for all you have done for me and I want to wish you good luck. 4 ',.. e . r- '.
