lt has been said that "an educated person is one who has a well-
rounded knowledge of things as they are, some understanding of things
as they were, and a vision of things as they might be. He should be able
to derive honest enioyment out of some few things of the intellect. He
should be equipped to earn enough of a living to iustify his existence."
If we should pause to analyze the meaning of the above sentences
what shall be our interpretations? No doubt we shall not word our in-
terpretations in the same way but I should imagine that we shall prob-
ably get pretty much the same meaning. Would not 'a knowledge of
things as they are' and 'some understanding of things as they were'
make for better citizenship? 'A vision of things ast they might be' should
certainly develop a better sense of responsibility in order that we may
better serve the society in which we live. To 'be able to derive honest
enjoyment out of some few things of the intellect' would of course make
for a better life. And to 'be equipped to earn enough of a living to
justify his existence' should be an influencing factor in developing each
of the obiectives of education-good citizenship, service to society, a
Nothing has been said about freedom. How does our definition of
an educated person indicate that such an obiective can be attained?
First, would you agree that each generation must win democracy for
itself? If so, then one must have 'a knowledge of things as they are,
some understanding of things as they were, and a vision of things as
they might be.'
ln the above l have made an attempt to point out to you, the class
of 1957, some concepts of what an educated person is. Do these con-
cepts apply to you? Of course when we realize that education is never
complete but is a continuous process, we have made a step in the right
direction towards becoming an educated person and achieving the obiec-
tives of education.
THE FUTURE BELCNGS
TO THE FREE
We people of the United States are a part of this world and not
apart from it. God has put us in a top position of leadership. lt is our
responsibility to live up to the obligation of this responsibility. We dare
not allow our desire for ease, comfort, wealth, and leisure to dull our
sense of duty or to block the keeness of our vision.
Our greatest strength lies in our people and their participation in
spiritual, educational, scientific, and industrial progress. The men and
women and the boys and girls who make up our country are, as indi-
viduals, endowed with a great capacity of potential power. The extent
to which we increase our knowledge and strengthen our character will
determine our power in the future.
Our iob in the world is not one that politicians, generals, and dip-
lomats alone can do. The leadership of theologians, educators, business,
labor and management. and social workers is even more important.
The combined efforts ot all these help to advance and to establish
opportunities for the freedom of all people,
To this end we should pledge our strength.
