The Keysffone past year I hardly need to read the questions: "Is Mary's age correct as stated? Is she a citizen of the United States? Is she trust- worthy? Would you trust her with valuable war information? What can you say about her health? Was she absent much for sick- ness? For tardiness? etc." Fortunately, Mary was in school this fall long enough for me to learn something about herwnough to answer the questions. However, many of these requests are for pupils who were here before my coming and in their cases I call upon other teachers in the building to fill in the knowledge not shown in the record form. This won't be necessary for you boys and girls because the new record system gives all this personal information. Our next request will show 'you how the new record form works, how your record may be used in the near future. This calls for a character reference. It appears that James twe'll call him thatb has applied for work in some large business where he will be exposed to large sums of money. The company wants all the information we can give on James as they can't afford to take any chances. James was in the class of 1944 but left last year, so we have a fairly com- plete story on him. After filling in the usual information on subjects, grades, etc., we come to the more personal items. This is one of those cases I don't like. Because on the Personality Record of this boy there have been recorded estimates by ten different teachers covering the qualities of "Serious- ness of Purpose, Industry, Initiative, In- fluence, Concern for Others, Responsibility, and Emotional Stability." These ratings for james are low and I doubt that they will be of any help to him in securing this position. Then there are questions about truancy, attitude toward teachers, attitude of other pupils, etc. All in all, this form gives quite a complete picture of a pupil and if one didn't know james personally, he would have a pretty good idea of his general make-up. I wonder if this boy realized when he was in school that he was making a record that some day would prove so important to him? It is too late to do anything about James' record. But what about yours? It isn't too late for you. You are making your record right now. Each day you contribute some- thing to that record, either through class- room recitation, or after school activity. Make a good record. Leave the kind of re- cord behind you that future principals will enjoy passing on to those agencies always writing your school for information to help predict your probable success in their line of work. Make a record that you can count on to be of real help to you in landing those jobs that you have set your heart on. Pardon- the phone-back again. That was the tele- phone company wanting us to recommend two senior girls to train as operators. An- other trip to the safe and the Record Book of the class of 1944. One closing thought. Remember-- YOU MAKE YOUR OWN RECORD. We merely record it! Principal Lawrence Stuart 41 lk Sk WHAT ARE YOU TAKING AWAY WITH YOU FROM CROSBYeAND WHAT ARE YOU LEAVING BEHIND? Oh-oh!--Here it comes-a LECTURE- I'll bet. No, this is not exactly a lecture-Let's just let our hair down a minute and call this a modified FIRESIDE CHAT-with a few live coals thrown in. MY FRIENDS, and if I can't rightfully call you that, I don't care how little history you have learned from me. You are about to graduate. Your parents are proud of you, and glad. I am glad, also.
